  1. MST and Me - Taking my life back one session at a time


    “Man can live about forty days without food, about three days without water, about eight minutes without air, but only for one second without hope”

    Hello Everyone! No doubt if you're here you've been asked by me to come check out the log, or give some support from time to time. It's been probably 2 years or so since i've ran a log, and probably equally as long since i've shown any sort of true dedication to my fitness goals. It's been a tough stretch of 60+ hour work weeks, having the home and four children to tend to, Being a Chef and tasting everything prior to it's service (and oftentimes unfortunately having second tastings as well), occasional times spending a bit too much time enjoying alcoholic bliss, nursing various sports/gym injuries that have caused me to miss lots of time at the gym or in the dungeon (my basement of kettlebells and a heavy bag), and of course...the poor eating habits day in and day out. Needless to say, i've put myself in quite a hole.

    Now sitting at possibly the heaviest (especially in a way of bodyfat) that i've ever been, I am going to take control. At one point in my life I had taken myself down about 100 lbs. and changed my weight issues into muscle and strength...and now I need to do it again. I am ready for the hard work, I am ready to dedicate the hours, the pain, the sweat, and i'm ready to lose many things that have comforted me. I started a little over two weeks ago by eliminating all fried foods. I have not had a food that has touched a deep fryer in 17 days now. Next in a few days is going to be unnecessary carbohydrates. While I will never limit my fruit intake or certain carbohydrates like sweet potatoes...I will be cutting out things like white breads (and maybe breads altogether), white rice, bleached pastas, etc. This log will not be an account of perfect clean eating, because I will be using that as a goal to get to. I am at a point where I do feel I need to kind of ween myself off things or remove them gradually. Finding the time for sessions has been the hardest thing i'm facing lately...but i'm finding ways, and I will find better ways moving forward as well.

    To start this log off I am going to be using the following supplements to aid my current diet :
    MST Mvp365 multi vitamin
    MST ZMK multi mineral
    Pure Hawaiian Spirulina pacifica
    whey protein powder

    In about a week or so I am going to add some more MST goodies once i've gotten a few more workouts in without any other supplementation. Just over the last week or so I have simply been enjoying how much a proper mineral protocol aids in rest and recovery and I will be adding some more recovery aiding items as well as some cordyceps (naturally ) and some items to add strength.

    If you're here to follow along, then I thank you for taking part in my journey. There will be days where I will question do I really want to do this workout or do I want to just veg out or maybe play some black ops instead...haha. On those days, your support will be what pushes me over the edge and forces me to work it out. As I always have over the last 7 years or so...I appreciate the hell out of all you that continue to follow along with my logs and have become part of my "E-Family". Thank you

  11. Alrighty, so a bit of an update. For the last 26 days I believe it is now, I have not eaten anything deep fried. I know that doesn't sound crazy hard but for me it is, haha. I'm a food junkie! Starting yesterday I am cutting out all breads as well. I will still eat items that could be sandwich type things, just on a plate or rolled in some romaine or something of that nature. I can feel just from 2 days away from the bread that my metabolism is picking up a bit....the furnace has kicked back on so to speak.

    I've had a few lifts in the last week or so and yesterday I spent the money for a buddy and I to get an hour on an indoor tennis court. It was good to get out and hit a little bit and I was breathing hard as all hell haha. The whole aspect of cardio by getting on a treadmill or elliptical is just too dull for me. All my cardio will be done by playing sports, hitting the heavy bag with punches/kicks, or swimming indoors over the winter. I will get a little more in depth with the workout posts but at least I got somewhat of an update going. Still using full doses of mvp365 and Zmk, still taking spirulina powder daily, and over the last 2 days I have added in Cordygen Nan02 powder

  12. Good work. Ever considered Paleo?

    Nan02 is pretty decent. Hits a lot faster

    yeah I dig nan02 a lot so far. My fav is still cre-02 (which will come later in the log), but nan02 has served me well haha. I thought about going paleo many times but with my line of work it would be nearly impossible. I am a chef and it's important that I can sample anything I make before it hits the floor. Since most items that I make from scratch will not be bread or fried, I can easily drop those two out.

    thanks , I have always been a huge fan. Cre-02 will be coming into the log pretty soon, probably Weds/Thurs of this week. My son is getting his tonsils out on Wednesday so to calm my nerves i'll probably do 4,000 or so squats/lunges at the hospital, haha
