And here is his journal for Week 1:
Woke up around 9:00AM
Drink half gallon of water upon rising.
I then immediately 2500 meters as hard as I can with the last 10 minutes being extreme hardcore high-intensity intervals
Meditated for 10 minutes
Stretched for 5 minutes
Pretty drained right now..haven’t ate..only drank water..feel good but tired from the work-out, need to refuel..
Breakfast: I then took 2 shots of thawed E3 Brain on, 2 capsule of renew me
Took 2 MSM capsules, 2 Omega-3 capsule, 2 Turmeric, 4 Maitake Mushroom capsules, 3 Garden of Life men’s live probiotics. 6 grams of spirulina/chlorella 50/50 mix tablets, 1 table spoon of coconut oil and some multi vitamins.
Made a smoothie consisting of 2 carrot, 1 celery stalk, half a beet root, 1 tbsp of cacao nibs, 2 tbsp of chia seeds.
Now I feel like a million bucks and bam energy galore. I feel like I am ready for another 2500 meters..My skin is tingling and my muscles are back on track feeling rejuvenated. My head is straight, I have mad concentration. I feel like taking a written exam but I don’t have one to take. I am ready to go to the beach now!
I went to Newport Beach and checked Balboa, flat and sand is all screwed up. Went to M street and checked the waves and went out and skimmed for 45 minutes, it was alright but nice to get in the water and get some extra exercise in. Finished up and headed to Mothers Market for a juice real quick before yoga.
Lunch: 16 oz of Juice, carrot, beet, chard, ginger, kale with cayenne pepper, downed it and went to go start some bikram yoga.
Bikram Yoga for 90-minutes, I felt so good in the beginning and could feel my skin rushing with blood towards the end. Kept my self motivated with positive friendly thoughts and motivational thoughts like “You got this son”, “Only 6 more postures” “This is butter” (I was really barely making it through the last postures” I was so focused during class though, my eyes were dead on myself in the mirror. I was so focused and in tune with my body that I totally blocked out everything and actually did the wrong pose only to put my head up and find every body in the savasana position while I am doing another posture. Embarrassing but funny. I was so in my zone. Class is done, feel like a million bucks, clean and fresh out of the shower. Time for some grub.
Dinner: 2 portabella mushrooms, 1/2 cup of organic white mushrooms, 1/2 cup of raw organic sauerkraut, 1/2 cup of quinoa.
Nightly Tea: Spring Dragon Gynostemma Tea and Chamomile and Pau D’Arco
Trying to keep it light, juice and water with light vegetables to get the body cleansed. Trying to avoid any animal products and heavy foods, trying to keep it light, no sugar, not even fruit so I can deplete my glucose stores and start fresh and start getting my fat burning stores going as my carbohydrate intake is low. I don’t do juice much but I want to cleanse a little and keep it light on the stomach for a couple days.
