188.2 at 27.2% - Baba's 67th Birthday

Hi Birthday Baba...

so my goal is/was to stay this range before the big February stretch, I am right where I want to be...

this weekend will be a good shot of food, but will be tempered by no alcohol and lots of exercise...

starting Monday, only foods will be beef, olive oil, and water (lots of water!)

191.4 at 27.9% (Fasted)

I told you... back and forth until I get to a home stretch after Superbowl Sunday (go Cardinals!)

as tomorrow is my dad's 67th birthday, Saturday is the GSP - BJ Penn fight at my buddy Chuck's house, and Sunday is Superbowl... I am choosing to offset the damage by fasting today and working out hard... I may fast on Monday as well but let's see about that
