Post Prep thoughts:
The tortilla chips were a bit of a fail.  Had the bottom rack a little too close to the bottom…

Final Thoughts:

After this week, Tim and I begin an 8 Week Transformation contest that is being hosted on Bodybuilding.com (http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/2016-Fit-Squad.html)
The rules are pretty basic- we have 8 weeks to “transform” as much as possible.  Obviously my main goal is to slim down and Tim’s is to put on some muscle.  The grand prize is $40k for the best transformation!
I’ve spent a couple weeks fine tuning my 8 week diet plan.  Basically I’ll be eating a high protein and fat diet with pretty low carbs. My diet is going to be pretty boring, but just going to try to stay focused and really push myself on the weights.
