Bill Pay Sundays: Every Sunday, TPOL peddles for money by promoting products that I use and recommend to my readers. In exchange, I get paid a referral fee. As part of the Training for the Tropics series, I’m pushing the following:
- MuscleEgg: the best protein to get in shape
- TRX Ropes: the best way to workout on the road.
- Lil Guys Health and Fitness Program. Fill out the online questionnaire in its entirety. (In the ‘Were you referred by someone?’ entry, tell them TPOL sent you. In the ‘how did you hear about us’ entry, put in my trainer’s name, Eddie Larios.)
Week 1 did not go smoothly. My trainer put target nutritional goals. To reach them, I had to buy a scale to measure everything I eat. It’s a big pain to input everything in the My Fitness Pal app. The scanner the app uses has yet to work. Impatient, I used the app inconsistently. That makes the whole process useless.
I also started the workouts which require me to record the major lifts. I bought a tripod for my phone and a Bluetooth remote. Setting up the tripod and capturing good videos was also a hassle. More inconvenient, was the inability to listen to music when the video was recording.
I am making negative progress. With 9 more weeks to go, I am hoping this gets easier. Oh, and the beer festival yesterday certainly did not help.
