Still not dead. I continued the fat loss plan, using frequent lifting, low volume workouts and more HIIT, hitting a several year low of 169.6 lbs. I looked like this:
I still want to look a bit leaner and more muscular, but should be satisfied with my progress. I’m not. I need to keep chasing goals, whether I meet them or not, else I lose focus. It’s the process that matters.
Roughly speaking, my goals to keep me focused for the next 18 months: visible abs, bench press 300 (or 225 for 10), deadlift 400.
Since wrapping up the T-ransformation Challenge, I took five full days off, but started getting after it again today. I’ll head off for an annual fishing trip in two weeks. For these two weeks, I wont follow any particular program.
Afterwards, or soon after, depending on how summer shakes out, I’m going to take a run at Thib’s Advanced Eternal Warrior Program. FWIW, it looks like the best kind of terrible.

Paul Carter’s quote on sticking with it, no matter the end result, popped up in today’s featured article. Seems appropriate to end with it here.
“somehow you have to learn to fall in love with the process and stop worrying about the destination.”
