One year ago today, I got a call from a buddy of mine with really bad news. He told me that a fellow Marine and good friend of ours gave the ultimate scarfice is Afganastan. It was a hard phone call for me to get. I can't even amagine how it was for his wife and family. I carry his memory with me every day. When I'm in the middle of a hard workout and I dont think that I can keep going, his memory keeps me going. I know he wouldn't want one tear shed about him. So I remember the good times. I just wish that I could have been there for his memorial.
So after I ran out of my pre-work supplement and had chest and tri's the next day, my wonderful wife can home with two bottles of that new C4 pre-work out. So, i'm back in it!
So yesterday I ran out of my Pre-work out stuff. Not to much of a big deal really. But, its like carring a gun, better to have it and not need it then to need it and not have it. I think that it has a big Phycilogical affect that most people don't reallize. I mean look at the beast of a man named Arnold. During his career they didn't have anything. He didn't use Protein, Pre-workout, nothing. So, its chest and tri day and I'm going to go at it the way I always do. Just like the Marine Corps, expect the worst and pray for the best.
Doing good so far, really need to keep it up and maybe kick it up a notch or two. Dropped down to 19.04% body fat from 20%.
8 days since the start of the Military Challenge. I got off to a rocky start, about 5 minutes after I signed up I got called into work and had to put of my first workout till the next day. But since then I have been hitting it hard. Memory of my friend/team leader/ brother that was lost in an IED attack August 19,2010 has been making me push harder. God Bless C.J my you rest easy, your tour is over we'll take it from here.
