I’ve posted my new monthly pictures this morning, and I have to say they are not nearly as bad as I thought they might be. Perhaps there’s a bit less definition in my lower abs; however, aside from that, not much change from last month. I ate so much junk food during the first 3 weeks of July that I figured this month’s photos would be among my worst in recent memory! As I wrote this past Saturday, I think the ~35-40 pounds muscle I’ve added over the past few years is why I’ve been able to indulge (on occasion) without too much ill effect on my physique. These days my body metabolizes a lot more calories in any given time period as compared to any other point in my adult life. Like to eat? LIFT WEIGHTS!

There’s a time for play, and a time to work. Play time is over, and for the next 4 or 5 months I’m going to be working my butt off in the gym while maintaining a very strict diet in the kitchen. Today is the first day of the inaugural 100 Challenge (the August entry deadline has passed, but you can sign up for the September challenge any time during the last week of August – watch this space for an announcement). This month I’ll be cutting away a few pounds of vacation fat, and working towards my goal along with the 91 other members who are taking part in the first challenge! I am blown away by the response to the first 100 Challenge. When this idea came to me, I was hoping that at least 10 people would join me. I had no idea so many people would take part. I’m totally inspired, and I hope the other participants are as well. Best of luck to everyone, thanks for participating and hang on to those points!
