Bikini Ready!

Project Bikini Body is a phenomenal success. As you can see from my final photo, I'm feeling very bikini-ready and confident to be on the beaches of Palawan and Cebu in June.

There's still a month before we go, so I'm going to keep locked in on the diet with the exception of a couple planned indulgences coming up in late May and early June. I'm going to sneak into the end of the Beach Blast program for the next couple of weeks.

In my real pic below, you can see my progress from January when I was quite fluffy, to the end of Chisel in March, to the end of Kettle Bells now. That's been some consistent dedication, so I'm very proud of myself.

This was a really fun program and I would definitely do it again. I'm excited to try Kettle Bells 2 at some point this year. Thanks to my teammates for pushing me. For Kenzai regulars like Fish, Janet, Naoko, Cecilia, Meghan, Watson and now my cousin June for constantly popping on and encouraging me. Coach Jess - I swear I can feel your positivity and love flowing across the pond and continent and right into my heart - and sweat glands! Thanks for being such a joy to work with.

Whole30 report out - well I've been doing it for 2.5 weeks now because of a work challenge and an opportunity to experiment. The pluses are that I have continued to lose body fat, and that my energy levels have been consistent and high. I will say that without the grains, I get intense cravings for crap food - particularly sweet baked goods like doughnuts and cakes - that I never wanted before. After this experiment, I'll stick with the Kenzai diet approach, although know that Whole30 can be an effective tool for short, focused, fat loss.

Onward!

    Chazizzel-jamma-slamma-boomboom!

    It's amazing what "picking stuff up and putting it down" will do for the body! You are literally the most motivating and inspirational person in my life. And I love how you tickle everyone's funny bone! I'm elated we are blood, but more recently you invited me into the Kenzai family...and that has made all the difference in the world for me! I'm so proud of you and I get to call you my cousin!!

    I hope the carpet matches the drapes!

      Wow - that is great progress from January Ed - and I would have said you were pretty fit then! Interesting observation on the lack of grains and the cravings it leads to. Good luck maintaining your losses ahead of your trip to the Philippines! Always inspiring to watch your progress!

            Damn bro you're lookin' TIGHT in your bikini! You should be proud of yourself! You strung together a great 4.5 months of training. Need to hold the line for another 1 month! Careful jumping into the BLAST waters, they are murky, and they are deep, and evil things lurk just below the surface...

                Looking great! The big smile and thumbs up πŸ‘ work wonders on the last pic! Will see what you think to beach...a walk in the park in comparison to the other programmes perhaps

                    Hahahahaha! You've made my day, Ed - both with the bikini shop, and your kind shout out :)

                    Seriously though, what a result! That's nearly 6 months of steady effort and discipline- and just look at the result! Bikini mission most definitely achieved. And what a powerhouse you look in those action shots.

                    Good plan jumping into another program now, just to make sure you don't let things slip before the great reveal in a months time :)

                    As ever you are the most amazing source of positivity (and comedy) throughout training- thank so much for that, Ed. COMPLETE!

                              When I saw that you were going to be doing KBells too, that boosted my commitment and energy levels way up. Your daily schedule to get those cycle workouts done was very impressive and that helped me get mine done especially on the low tough days. Your steady and constant progress is what I am aiming for. Not the yo-yo style and so to see it in pictures is proof that it can be done. Congratulations Ed!

                                  Shitballs boy! Look at that bod! I have to say, I never think of you any other way, but seeing your before/after photos really show your progression. Remarkable. And hilarious. You may be one of the funniest people I know. You and June really are two peas in a pod... πŸ€£πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸ»β™₯️πŸ₯‚πŸ· 🧁 🍰 🍟

                                    Black is definitely your color! And well done - what a difference from Day 1. So glad to be part of your tribe β€” you’re a keeper!

                                        How did I miss this post??? You look amazing in your bikini, Ed. I see from other photos that you kept up your physique for the trip and deservedly tucking into the lechon. You earned it!
