I’m originally from the Detroit, MI area but I moved to Orlando, FL (aka best city on earth) in 2002. Ever since Hurricane Charley hit in 2004 I’ve been afraid of hurricanes. Tropical storms, however, bring a lot of rain, some wind and thunder. Today is a tropical storm day. Its also Memorial Day. Instead of going to the park and BBQing I spent the day mostly in bed (I don’t get home from work until 3am) and playing with the kids. We went to Publix and bought a fried chicken dinner complete with baked beans and hung out and enjoyed.
I’m not really on a good diet right now. I was doing Tim Ferriss’ “Slow Carb Diet” and lost a good amount of weight. In the process of moving I got off my diet for about a month. By the time I got back on my diet I was addicted to carbs again.
Tim’s Tip #2 – The reason you fail at your diet is you are addicted to sugar and carbs!
The carb addiction was too much for me and after 2 weeks of dizziness I succumbed to the addiction and ate some bread. I justify the baked beans because they’re full of protein and will be good for my muscles as I work out. I realize I’m not a hard core muscle builder but baked beans with bacon in them are delicious. Don’t follow my diet!
The bad thing about a tropical storm is that I wont be able to ride my motorcycle to work today. I ride my motorcycle to work year round, nearly every single day. I love it.
With all this activity today I honestly feel like my workout didn’t slow me down at all. In fact, the hardest part of my workout was my 4 year old jumping on my back while I was doing a plank! Today was a good day.
