Celebrate Valhalla! FAT TIRE Project Update

Are you kidding me??!! First of all, what a TEAM! Valhalla --- you really delivered. This is the best group I've had the pleasure to train with since KB1 (aka PCP). You all crushed the Blogs, crushed the Program and maintained the mojo and enthusiasm for 42 days (and counting). Second, great Program, my most favorite in a long time. All K-Programs are good ... this one was GREAT! Every workout was a challenge. I left each workout soaked with sweat, huffing and puffing and VERY satisfied that I just did something fantastic for my body --- and my mind. What a great way to start each day. Third, Trainer K-extraordinaire, Koach Ward -- the passion and enthusiasm, encouragement, wisdom and guidance always makes us feel like we have someone "watching" and wanting to assist. THANK YOU to everyone!

I was I think 32 for 32 on the workouts and then I was slightly de-railed by 15 of my Golf hammerheads stopping by for 5 days…then a work trip immediately thereafter and suddenly I found myself a bit off course. It was a temporary departure however and I did manage to finish back on track. Diet was steady 90% of the time. My wobbly shoulder (a recent injury) had me having to make some modifications, not many…just here and there. Much better than Bellz I where my shoulder blew a hole in the Program. I battled a back issue too in Bellz I but with Koach’s help I managed through it – I am thrilled to report that my back today is feeling very strong. Oh, and by the way, what are these bumps at the top of my arms? I discovered shoulder muscles!! When does Bellz III kick off?

FAT TIRE PROJECT Update…
So if you had read my blog back in November you would have seen the sad picture that is below. Things had (again) gotten out of hand…poor food choices and dusty resistance bands equals 185 lbs. At that point I started a slow climb back and initiated the FAT TIRE project. Knowing I had my son’s wedding on the horizon (next month) I decided…”OK Scott, you have 6 months to go from FAT TIRE, to SPARE TIRE, to FLAT TIRE.” And I am pleased to report that I have made progress. I still have some mass to move/eliminate but overall the prognosis is good – and I have Bellz, Koach and the Kommunity to thank. I’m down 3 inches and 14 pounds overall including a shrinking of the MBs. My fat pants are back in the guest room closet. My finale pic is the same shirt as is in the pic from 6 months ago.

What’s next for me? I am repeating weeks 5 and 6 and have already started…did Day 29 yesterday and 30 today. I expect to be bike riding and running most of the summer plus some swimming. I will sprinkle in K-Life throughout and I’m planning to jump into Chisel in August. I need that marker out there to keep strong, Chisel is not your grandfather’s program. Speaking of Granfather’s, my little’s will be here in a week…I can’t wait! It’s because of Kenzai that they will have to keep up with me!

    Grandpa Scott, you need a new shirt!
    What a program, what a team! Your summer plans sound so awesome and I know you will keep Kenzai in your day to day life. Thank you so much for being such an inspiring team mate and getting us through this tough program. You did it!! We did it!!!

      Looks like you have well and truly burst that tyre Scott. You’ve earned looks of room for wedding cake - all the to best to you and your family. I hope to see you back on Kenzai in the near future - perhaps to burn off that wedding cake.

        Exciting times ahead for you Scott and you nailed it! Keep it up through June and enjoy the wedding! You have inspired us to have a go at KB2.

                Whoa. 3 inches off the waistline. A massive 32 straight workout streak. And 14 lbs less to lug around the beach this summer. Stellar show, Scott! I mean, sometimes all the variables come together. Team, program, workouts, and diet! When it does, a tough routine is not only easier, but it's freakin' fun! I'm so glad those fat pants are stored where they belong. In the back of the closet. It's my hope you never see them again. Perhaps they'll find their way into the family fireplace! COMPLETE.

                  That shirt is just hanging off you now. Great work with Bells 2, keeping that shoulder in the safe zone, and continuing strong on project flat tire. Enjoy that bike (and run) time!

                  Oh, and by the way...since you said it, yup you're all set for Run-Half. October sounds perfect. So mark it on your calendar.

                    Great Project. Isn't it amazing how that tire suddenly appears and sticks around way too long? But you clearly melted that tire away and got ready for the summer strut. Enjoy!

                      Wow! If I was sold on the Bellz before, I am now for sure. Great work, Scott! You are making remarkable progress towards the flat tire with an enthusiastic attitude. Your grandchildren are so perfectly beautiful!

                            Scott, I am remiss in not having followed you during Kettlebell 2. It's on my list of programs to do in future, and there is always a lot to be learned from people who have gone before. I am in a bit of a pickle right now (mid-July) because I have got a vitreous hemorrhage that has half blinded me. The doctor's advice is to take it nice and easy so as not to exacerbate the problem. So although I am signed up for Kettlebell 2 starting in August, I may have to postpone that till later in the year. It's funny how an eye problem of all things can knock you off track. Before it's been my knee or my ankle that has given me trouble. Meanwhile, take care of that wobbly shoulder you wrote about.
