Daily Workout: Saturday December 8, 2018

I really didn’t write down much of my workout yesterday, as I didn’t really plan on it being the first day of my new fitness documentation process.  That said, I did write down some of it on my white board and I will share the photo of that here – along with a screenshot from the Very Fit Pro app that I use with my fitness tracker and a course of me sweating (some of) my man boobs off after 60 minutes of cardio downstairs at the gym at our apartments.

Documenting My Fitness Process

In an effort to expand the effectiveness of my workouts, nutrition and quest for optimal health – and a desire to increase the speed of which I get back to what I consider to be “fit” in my Fit to Fat to Fit old guy version ( #Fit2Fat2FitOldGuyVersion ), I am going to once again start documenting my workouts.  It is my intention to do this daily.  I will do this daily, because I am worth it.  My health is worth it.  And just as importantly, the people that I help through this process and my blogging, vlogging and other writing, are worth it.

Documenting My Fitness Process Joe Abs

I am interested in how this documenting process will affect my outcomes.  I already know what happens when I don’t document it.  I already know what happens when I don’t really have a plan.  Fortunately, I am (at times) an extremely self-motivated and disciplined individual, but unfortunately, easily get bored and that can lead to being unmotivated and undisciplined.  I believe that documenting what I am doing will help me come up with a better plan, stick to it and achieve better results.

Fit to Fat to Fit (Old Guy Version) Fat DEXA Results

Fit to Fat to Fit FAT Joe Kennedy 100218Yesterday, I had another DEXA Body Composition Test at Body Comp here in San Diego.  It was more than a little embarrassing for me – but in a sick way, I earned the ‘results’.

For the past 100 or so days, I have been eating (mostly) like a freaking pig.  Instead of my usual (fairly) clean diet (I call it a Live-It), I’ve been consuming pizza, ice cream, cookies, cakes, pasta, and donuts. I even drank a couple of half racks of beer like the ‘good ole days’.  Between June 27th and October 2nd of this year (98 days), I gained 41.9 pounds – including 29.3 pounds of gross, ugly fat.

Not a pretty site – I didn’t enjoy it at all and feel like total crap because of it.  Not only have gained a belly, but also man-boobs I never thought that I would be cursed with.  My energy levels have tanked, I’m much more easily out of breath – and I even have to sit down to put my shoes on.  I only have one pair of shorts that fit me (they have an elastic band) – and no pants that do.  I’ve had to resort to wearing sweats on several occasions.  For me, there are a couple of things that hurt bad:  1) I hate having fat thighs that rub together when I walk (waddle) and 2) I’m fat enough that even my wife is grossed out.  Painful – and not necessarily in that order.  Here are the major differences in my DEXA results in less than 100 days:  Continue reading “Fit to Fat to Fit (Old Guy Version) Fat DEXA Results”

Team BeachBody’s New Nutrition Program 2B Mindset: What’s In The Box

New Nutrition Program 2B Mindset from BeachBody requires ZERO exercise

2B Mindset Be More TribeOrder the 2B Mindset Nutrition Program by June 3rd and SAVE $20

Team BeachBody recently came out with a new nutrition program for people who have challenges with their mindset around food. That means it is pretty much for all of us …

2B Mindset is an all new program designed to teach us all to have a better mindset about food and eating. 2B actually stands for two bunnies – a little funny, but it’s actually 2 bunny ears – four key points to keep in mind when working to have a great mindset about food and nutrition.

The key points are as follows:

1) Measure – this means weighing in every day.
2) Track – write down what you are eating and drinking.
3) Water first. Before eating or drinking anything, drink A LOT of water.
4) Veggies Most. For each of your meals and snacks, eat mostly veggies.

It’s that simple. Do those things and get to and maintain a healthy weight. No exercise required – but you will probably want to – and anything you can do to breathe and sweat is extra credit with #2BMindset

Scottie Hobbs Quit P90X – So I’m Going to Do P90X

Hey Everyone – I’m Joe Kennedy, Minister of Health and Fitness and P90X Be More TribeFounder of the Be More Tribe.  I’m really pumped up today and have some news for you!

As a little background, Scottie Hobbs is is one of the most successful male online fitness coaches for Team BeachBody.  He has built a great team, trained a lot of people and helped many people get in better shape.  He has also made A LOT of money.

Scottie Hobbs is one of the reasons that I decided to go all-in as a Team BeachBody Coach.  I’ve watched a lot of his videos.  Today I watched one where he told his viewers that he quit P90X – the program that initially introduced him to BeachBody and helped him lose A LOT of weight.

He said that after doing different workouts every day in the 80 Day Obsession program, he just wasn’t into P90X and it’s 12 different workouts.  So apparently so time in the last week or so, he decided to quit P90x and go back to 80 Day Obsession.  One of the things that I like best about BeachBody is that there are so many different workouts and nutrition programs, that there is literally something for everyone.  I don’t think it’s a bad thing to start on one and then change to another.  People change – and so do their needs and desires.  Scottie Hobbs has had great success with both programs – as have thousands of others.  I’m sure he’ll have continued success with 80 day obsession and wish him the best.

That said, I don’t think it will be as likely that he’ll reach his stated goal to be in the best shape of his life in 12 months.  After all, it’s got to be just a little easier doing 30 minute workouts each day in 80 Day Obsession, than the 60 minute workouts in P90X …..  And that’s alright, but it’s exactly the reason that I’ve chosen to rock P90X.

I’m starting a new Challenge Group on June 1st – and I’d like YOU to be in it!  Whether you decide to rock P90X with me, take on 80 Day Obsession, choose another BeachBody workout program, or simply want to work with the new 2B Mindset nutrition program, I would love to be your coach and accountability partner.  Many coaches simply rely on Facebook groups for their accountability groups – and we’ll have that too – but I will also ask each participant to check in with me daily so I know how they are doing and when I need to push, congratulate or back off.

If you are interested in achieving better health and fitness, this is a great opportunity to start – and I would be thrilled to be able to help you along your journey.  Please contact me – and I’ll get you all signed up and ready to go!

This is going to be TOTAL #awesomeness !!!

 

Trying to Reach ‘My Audience’ – I’m Starting a Stay at Home Dad Podcast

Ava Kalea Kennedy w her Stay at Home DadMy wife Stacia and I had a conversation the other day about connecting with people who are just like me.  I pointed out the obvious:  there is nobody just like me.  After thinking about it, I realized that almost everybody probably wants to be unique – but crap, just look at me …  lol

Then my thoughts got beyond looks and I realized that I do have A LOT in common with many people.  I am an entrepreneur.  I have a home-based business.  I am into fitness, nutrition, health and personal development.  I am a dad.  I am a step-dad.  Stacia and I have teenagers – and a toddler.
