    Hi John,

    With my work load I've gotten behind on reading your daily updates, but I just want to congratulate you on your recent cutting results! Today I begin my own cutting diet and can only hope that I can attain results half way as successful as yours! I'm glad to have read your update, now I am motivated! :)

    Thanks! :o

    Ha, you'll probably be at 3% body fat before I hit 8%. :lol:

    Hey John, how have you been enjoying the Trek 4300 since getting it last year? I'm probably going to be investing in a 3900 Disc tomorrow, as my budget is somewhere under $500, and everything looks promising thus far.

    Of course, being in Colorado, trail riding is only possible so many months out of the year. Should still be fun.

    :D

    I love it, and Lisa loves hers. We've taken our 4300s on everything from ~40-mile paved rides to rough dirt trails and the bikes perform very well in both environments. I even wrecked mine pretty hard out on the dirt trails and, apart from straightening the handlebars and replacing the bent saddle, it was just fine.

    I am really glad I went with a straight-up hardtail mountain bike instead of a hybrid.

    I have only two complaint about the 4300:

    - The stock saddle is pretty uncomfortable. We replaced both of ours not long after we got the bikes.

    - Occasionally after a hard landing or a high bunny hop the chain will come off. This has happened to me about 4 or 5 times, but has never happened to Lisa. The stock rear derailer may need to be swapped out for a better one if this becomes an issue for you.

    A few new pictures. About 10% body fat here...

    Smashed the crap out of my finger between dumbbells by trying to lay them down at failure instead of dropping them. The finger instantly swelled to about twice it's normal size. Thankfully it's not broken, but rope pressdowns after this happened were not too fun.

    Hey John, nice pics. Your triceps remind me of Kevin Levrone's, only with more thickness. :nod:

    I don't know, man.... maybe you better get that bad boy X-rayed. :confused:

    Nah, I can confirm that it's definitely not broken. There's just some blood under the skin now, and some mild-ish stiffness. I lucked out!

    After 3 months with no cheat meals and a lot of hard work in the gym, it's pretty rewarding to see my cuts starting to return.

    Killed it today in the gym. :spaz:

    Starting to look really cut! It's exciting when seeing new veins that haven't been seen in a while. haha. I would say that's the first moment you realize that all this calorie deficit and hard work is worth it. :)

    Abs definitely need another month or so in the oven. :nod:

    I'm also dealing with some extra loose skin this year. I love getting old. :blank:

    We spread 6 yards of mulch this morning, and it only took us 2 hours!
    six-yards.jpg


    This past winter was quite literally the coldest winter on record for Orlando (breaking the record set all the way back in 1954). The grass and plants were hit hard, but are making a nice comeback.

    April 10, 2010. North side of house. This photo was taken right after mulching. The cold winter really took its toll on things, but everything is starting to come back nicely. The golden globe Durantas and Firecracker plants are starting to come back, and the queen palms will soon be growing new fronds to replace those that were damaged during the harsh winter. The grass was totally brown a couple weeks ago, and is starting to make a nice recovery. The Azaleas against the house never disappoint!

    April 10, 2010. North side of house and part of the West side of the house. This photo was taken right after mulching. The sago survived the harsh winter with no burnt fronds because I was very careful to keep it covered on nights when the temperature dipped below freezing.The Canary Island date palms that line the North side of the home are very cold tolerant and are doing quite well. The Indian Hawthorne and Loropetalum are doing great, and starting to bloom now. Despite being covered during cold nights, the Robellini palm against the small section of fence facing the front of the home was once again badly hurt by the cold and lost all its fronds. Only one trunk of the three survived. I'm going to replace it.

    April 10, 2010. North and West side of house. This photo was taken right after mulching. The Pindo palms (one of which is in the foreground) also do very well in the cold, and were unphased by the extra cold winter. In the front bed and also in the beds surrounding the house we just planted a bunch of Dwarf Nandina, Daisies and Dahlia. The roses in the front bed will soon be covered with literally hundreds of blooms. The Magnolia in the eye-shaped bed will also be blooming very soon. The grass is finally starting to come back, and I should have my thick, dark green lawn again about a month from now. I'll take more pictures in early May.

    Hey John, just wondering, how do your legs fit in size 29 jeans? Whenever I try on Jeans that are below size 32....its so tight around my thighs, I can't stand it. I actually have a size 34 pair that I wear, even though its way to big around the waist. I just like having breathing room around my thighs.
