Final Weigh-in: 28-Day Nutritional Challenge at CFNAC

I’m humbled and thrilled with my #InBody results from the #28DayNutritionalChallenge at @crossfitnewmarketcentral / @crossfitauroracentral. Coming to the end of the month long experiment, I met my goals and surprised myself a little and learned so much. I GAINED 5.2 lbs, primarily in lean muscle mass in my upper limbs and legs. And LOST 1.6% Body Fat from 13% to 11.5%. My upper body strength has also increased as I can do 2 straight pull-ups (my goal is 10 unbroken in a years time), and recently, I PR’ed my #deadlift joining the “200 Club”. While all of these stats are fantastic and great for accountability, I also learned how important #NUTRITION is in getting fit and staying healthy. Humans need clean nutrient-dense foods in the appropriate amounts and portions to fuel our bodies, along with high quality supplementation, especially when we’re bringing it to the gym. I’m thankful to @ryanabushcf, @runharv, & @truenorthgrit and the whole #CFNAC community for being inspiring positive role models to not just the competitive warriors, but the normal folks like me. I look forward to continuing on this path to even more gains. Stay tuned! One step closer to being the #FittestonEarth! ????#THISIS30 #INTHEOPEN

28 Day Nutritional Challenge at CFNAC

Today is day 1 of the #28DayNutritionalChallenge at my box @crossfitnewmarketcentral / @crossfitauroracentral! We had a fantastic turn out of 96 participants! Everyone got a delicious athlete dietician approved 4 week food prep schedule and recipes. It is really neat as we are going a Before and after #InBody Measurement and photos. From this I get to see my body composition and NOT just BMI. Initially, It shows what I already figured out in that my upper body / arms really suck strength wise. I was confused and anxious from my results as it shows that I actually need to GAIN weight now in order to build muscle. I guess I did an extremely good job last year at burning it all off eh? Anyways I’m considered a “clean slate” now I guess. After some reflection this totally makes sense. I need calories to build muscle, and once I’ve gained what I want, then I can cut the fat later. I know how. And I’m doing to be having a one-on-one session with @ryanabushcf about my goals.


1 – Gain 4 lbs of lean muscle mass (1 lb per week)?
2- Do more Weight lifting and Squats

3-Feel okay with putting back on some weight even though that means some fat too

Welcome Aboard My Journey

Hello everyone! It’s been almost 3 years since I’ve posted on here. So much as happened in my life. And I can’t wait to share it with you. I made this channel and website because I believe in challenging the status quo and proving that the average person can live a long healthy life. 


In the first 29 years of my life, other than a few swimming classes and softball games as a kid, I’ve had barely any physical activities. I had a terrible diet with processed foods, meats, dairy, junk food, and fast food. 


How will I do this? I find that creating a platform for accountability absolutely helps. Ex. Apple Watch and Reddit groups, or running groups. Gyms. So far, I found that the running community on Instagram to be super positive and supportive. So I feel keeping my website and YouTube up to date will keep me more accountable and consistent.


What will I do to make this sustainable and continually making it both challenging and fun? I will keep you all updated on future races /events I plan to part take in. And also do in-depth recaps of past events. And reflect on things like race preparation training , day-of experience, what I learned from it, and how I plan to address and overcome these short comings . Together we will share insight to all create a better version of us.
