My Plyocide

A spark of difference this morning. When I woke up, I wasn’t nearly as tired. This has me thinking if there was something specific in my diet or world that has changed ever so slightly. I’m curious if the effect of a large fire spewing a ton of CO2 or ash into the air would have an effect on my sleep. Especially if I’m downwind of it. Hmmmm… This morning was my Plyocide.

While I wasn’t feeling 100% awake, I got into the workout and felt much better about it than I have in the past couple of weeks. If it’s not the fire issue, it might be a change in the diet. I haven’t changed much of my diet recently so it’s hard to say. Could very well be a heat factor too. It’s been warm, but not overtly hot like it was the past two weeks.

Either way, the workout of Plyocide today went extremely well. I wasn’t pushing myself to max anything out, but I kept up very well. That’s a bonus in my book.

Normally this would be my last week of phase two. However, since I took a half week with it last week and because I seem to notice the most change in my abdominal area during phase two, I believe I will do an additional week of it. I may do two more weeks of it – if only to hit my goal of a perfect flat 6 pack belly. So close. So. Close.

Time for a kickin’ breakfast sided with a Shakeology. I’ve got a hunger thanks to my Plyocide workout today. Follow it up with some music making. In the meantime, I’m going to throw down a challenge to you. Want to feel better than you ever have before? Want to get in great shape? Eat healthier? Then join my fitness challenge! Do it now and get ready for your hot new self.

Plyocide Has Plyodied

Today will be a rather short post. The title essentially says it all. My plyocide has plyodied. I had a tough one today.

My brain is wondering if my body is telling me – dude, I need a week off to recover. I’ll have to see how I’m feeling after the next workout in a couple of days. Mostly because tomorrow is a recovery day.

The gut feeling is my sleep pattern is off and that is what is truly affecting the workouts. I’ll know in a couple of days I suppose. Till then: Keep Pushin!

Shoulders Arms And Abs Happy When I’m With You

Late morning start. But then again, I’m a musician – what do you expect? Here’s the funny. My coach and my upline coach are also musicians. Today my workout was my upline coach’s workout in P90X2. Jason Scheff. That’s the Shoulders Arms and Abs Happy When I’m With You workout. I added the title after it because of two reasons.

Reason one. Jason actually says this to Tony in the video. Reason two. It’s the title of a song I wrote a couple of summers ago and is in a movie.

Despite the not so great Plyocide workout a couple of days ago, I’m back on a roll with the program. I increased weight over my first journey stats. That’s a big deal. Shows me I’m getting stronger still. Love it!

Add to that, the fact that I have a proper sized stability ball too, makes some of the moves hard. Better still, I’m getting more out of them. Bonus.

I’m feeling awesome. Especially since I got through the workout with flying colors and smashing the abs too. Plus in case you missed it, the title I gave earlier is a song that can be purchased. I’m saying Shoulders Arms and Abs Happy When I’m With You. That’s right, I’m up. Join me for a fitness challenge!

p.s. time for a Shakeology.

Plyocide Mess

Oh my. I definitely pushed it hard yesterday. This morning, after being up until 4:30 a.m. I woke up feeling some spots on my body that I don’t recall ever feeling before. Yet I was going to push on any way. That led me to a Plyocide mess.

What do I mean about that? Well…

Essentially I started the workout in an exhausted state. Not enough sleep. Plyocide is definitely not a workout you can do in a tired state. At least not effectively. I started up and got through the first portion. At the end of the first part I felt like pushing it any further would have been a dangerous thing to do.

What did I do?

I stopped. Heart pounding. Sweat dripping. Exhausted. Yikes.

We all have days where things aren’t as effective. Today was such a day for me. Tomorrow will be great to get on the foam roller!

Schwetty Schwetty Plyocide

Earlier this past year I played some golf with a buddy at an executive style course. During the round a 3rd person we were on the course with pulled out a gag ball. That gag ball was a schwetty ball from SNL (Saturday Night Live). Apparently there was a skit years ago involving schwetty balls. Not sure what made me think of that other than today was a schwetty schwetty plyocide.

It’s getting warm outside. Thus working out is a little more intense. More sweat is coming out. Due to the increase of warm in the weather I had to take a few extra pauses during the workout. Pushing it as hard as I’m pushing it now is a little more intense in heat. Thus not wanting to pass out or puke, I take the road of a few extra moments between the more hard core moves.

This 3rd week is going pretty smoothly. I’m keeping up. I’m pushing hard. I’m making progress. I’m feeling it, but it’s no longer killing me. Bonus.

Time for a little Shakeology to quench my depleted nutrition needs, a hearty breakfast and get on with the musical day. Are you in need of dropping a few pounds? Getting into better shape? How about joining a fitness challenge and putting yourself to a schwetty schwetty plyocide test? Join me!
