Wow, a lot to cover here.

First off, let's start with the stats.  I began with 33% body fat and ended with 27.4% body fat.  In addition, I started at 219 lbs. and ended at 198 for a loss of 21 lbs.  In addition, I lost 3 inches of waistline.  So overall, I'm feeling pretty good about the last 90 days.

I had posted certain key measurements earlier in my blog (bicep, thigh, etc) and I will post those in a follow up tomorrow.  I'm too tired now, I did a lot today and while I didn't have an enormous dinner, it was non-Kenzai.

I am going to continue knocking out the exercises, I am not done yet and they will take another 10-12 days to complete with everything going on.  Once the workouts broke the one hour mark I really struggled squeezing them in.  But the diet is going to be "80 percent Kenzai"  with some definite indulgence days.

A humongous shout out to Alcor.  Within Pearl, Alcor was without a doubt the powerhouse team.  5 out of 7 team members posted almost every day, there was great enthusiasm, solution-generating and also a good amount of open discussion about how much the program took a toll.  I am not a crazy rah-rah guy, but I really couldn't have picked a better group of folks with whom to do this program.  Rami, Ethna, Preetie, Nikki, Hussein and Roger......there is always a cold beer waiting for you at the bar of Brett.  In addition, and this is scientific fact, Team Alcor was better looking than any other group by a statistically significant margin.  You may feel angry when you read that but remember kids, numbers don't lie.  

In addition, there were a lot of great Pearl members who were massively helpful. Dawn, Elena, Matt, Oliver, Shivani, Brent and many, many others just made the community a more fun place to be.  It really was inspiring when you felt run down and mentally not there to read about other people who were fighting similar battles but taking different approaches and winning in those ways.

Finally, big thanks to Gus.  Gus did a great job of setting the tone with the group.  He was funny, clear, empathetic but also firm....the underlying message was always "OK, but keep at it."  I really think that Gus got the most out of Alcor and certainly out of me.

Thanks all, this has been a really fun journey.

      Looking strong and sexah in that shot Brett. Your pithy posts are responsible for snorts of laughter on the trains in Tokyo. To quote John Irving 'you've got to get obsessed and stay obsessed'. I hope our paths cross in the real world one of these days...

        You are bags of fun Brett but I will argue that Cepheus are far better looking :-) Except for my girl Ethna ofcourse who I long wanted to adopt into our team. But on a serious note, you've had great results and it's pretty impressive that you are determined to catch up on all the exercises. Good to see you finish below the 200 mark. Good job!

          Brett, well done, big CONGRATS! You look great! You've stuck with it despite huge work and family commitments, so I really admire your staying power. Thanks for all of your encouraging messages through out, it really did help me! The best of luck with living the Kensai life in the future!

            Brett you're right, Alcor really rocked it! I've had a great time watching you guys go through the program and what has really helped is through the highs and lows there has been a good amount of humor to keep it fun and happy - a large part of that has come from your blog and I've looked forward to reading how you have interpreted the Kenzai experience along the way. About the serious stuff of the training and the results, well you have done a great job there on your own terms and with a degree of pragmatism that leaves me confident about your onward health and wellness journey. Thanks for being such a well spirited trainee and for being a great team member, and make the most of your career break - thats an opportunity that doesn't come along every day.

              Awesome work Brett. You get out what you put in, and you and your group put in a lot. It's so fun and inspiring for all of us when everything clicks like that. Thanks for being so cool through all your programs, it's a pleasure to work with you. You know all the answers now, keep your diet and exercise at about 80% as you say and your body will continue to reward you with less fat, more tone, and ever-increasing energy and positivity. I won't give you your final COMPLETE quite yet, but know that you are indeed COMPLETE in every sense of the word. Congratulations!

                Congrats, Brett. I can't say how much your humor helped get me through some really crappy days here. I'm so happy for what you've accomplished and excited for what you have to look forward to.
