Week 1 Report:

Week 1 went pretty much as expected. I realized how much I was eating out and Shaibi realized how long it had been since he regularly trained.

After, our first couple days of growing pains we both did a great job with our habits. I made 75% of my own food last week and prepped food again this Sunday for this week including a large batch of breakfast burritos. YUM. I also exercised 5 of 7 days last week which was one day short of my goal – I’ve got to get those weekend routines in early before I get distracted by other stuff.

Highlights from last week include my large batch of enchiladas that provided 4 meals. See recipe below.

Week 2 Habits:

Something I struggle with as a coach in the fitness industry is the focus on fat loss and having the perfect body.

While I recognize body composition is an important aspect of fitness and many people’s motivation for working out it doesn't always feel good to focus on the way we look in the mirror. I prefer to focus on movement and strength, when you improve these aspects of fitness sustainable fat loss follows.

I strive to educate my students that fitness is about a lot more than our waist size including emotional well-being, improved hea...
