2.5 Week Beach-Ready-Body Tune-Up Progress Update

A few weeks ago I posted My Wild Before and After Experiment With Vulnerable Photos - feel free to read that if you missed it the first time... I felt timing these posts and updates around my 43rd birthday would give them more ZING and meaning :-) Spring has arrived and Summer gets here VERY fast in Florida - which means lots of time and activities outdoors and at the beach. So, here is my 2.5-week Beach Body progress update (the photos below were taken about 7 days ago.. this post is delayed by about a week due to a tight schedule)... 1 - As you can see, the upper body hair is gone (except for my forearms). 2 - light tan has started as more outdoor/beach time is natural this time of year 3 - body fat has dropped a little.. down to about 12.5% 4 - total weight is down around 2-3 pounds (around 132-LBS)
Metabolism/Food Intake Changes: A - My breakfast is now actually around 11:30am (I do have some black tea with stevia and organic skim-milk when I wake up, with my morning supplements - and then after my morning cardio workout, I do have some organic carrots and strawberries - and some more black tea.) B - My activity levels have increased a bit. The weather is warming up in north Florida... So, more outdoor time. Darah is now riding a bike WITHOUT training wheels, so I can run in the morning and she rides along-side me... Then we throw in 1 or 2 more rides throughout the day :-) C - I've shifted to "leaner" breads for my 11:30am breakfast sandwich. 2 slices max out at around 160 calories - and there is more protein and fiber content as compared to traditional breads. I'm getting the itch to start bringing steel cut outs and nuts into my breakfast rotation - so I may alternate between the two... D - I make sure there is always a supply of low-calorie, nutrient dense veggies and fruits - ready to go. These "feel better" in the warm and hot Spring/Summer months. And they fill in the "hungry" gaps during the day and evening, between the meals I already have planned. E - I get both doses of Metabo223x in before I eat lunch, which for me is around 3:30pm. So, dose #1 is with my morning black tea and the 2nd dose is around noon with some carrot sticks and strawberries. When it gets hotter in a few more weeks (lots more sweating during activities), I'll add my electrolyte supplement to this mid-day ritual. Stay tuned for the next update - I'm aiming to have progress photos and other insights for you in about a week to 10 days from now. Please share your thoughts, comments and/or questions below - I'd love to hear from you.

Your trainer for life, - Joey Atlas

    Wow you look awesome Joey your such an inspiration. Im not sure what program I need. I have been trying to do the 5 keys to kill cellulite for my very flabby thighs. I sent an email to the wrong address asking how to many times a week to do it and the number of sets to get the quickest results but I didnt get a response back to my questions.. My goal is needing to tone my whole flabby body asap. What would you recommend? Im so desperate 🙁
