AWESOME day today.
I got to the Dropzone at 9am and was really surprised to see the parking lot full and to hear that they had already sent up 3 planes! The place is really unpredictable. Sometimes you wait forever and others its go go go.
This Russian guy Boris who I jumped with on Wednesday was there so I got on the next available load with him. He’s got over 2,000 jumps and is an instructor in Russia so he had some really good tips for me. He told me I did a pretty good job but when you jump with someone that good its hard to know cause if you fall too fast or slow they adjust themselves automatically.
We jumped twice more with two other guys but lost both of them after the exit. Both guys were similar experience level as me so it’s hard to know if I was the cause of the break off or otherwise but either way the jumps were awesome. Boris videoed them which was really cool. I love to able to see what I did as normally what happens is just a blip in your memory but when it’s on video you can relive it over and over.
71 jumps deep now. My goal is to get over 100 by the time the go to AZ in October which is extremely doable.
Food of the Day
End of my first week weighing and measuring. It went pretty well aside from the getting sick and having a migraine. This week will be a better gauge hopefully. I’ve found that nuts are a better source of fat to keep me tide over vs guac which is good. Over all it’s been pretty easy, just takes a lot of planning.
I went to a friends BBQ this evening which was the first time I’ve had to hold back on what I’ve eaten as usually I just get after all the chips and unlimited burgers etc.
In terms of visible results I’ve leaned out a lot in just 7 days. I’m curious to see how much more it can even go.
I want to be clear with anyone reading this with my intension behind the whole experiment.
A. I know that I was already pretty lean. My goal is to see what it takes to be absolutely shredded. I have never weighed and measured my food and I want to see whats involved in levels of discipline as well as well as what kind of results it will yield.
B.I can then be able to help my clients understand first hand what is expected when they tell me their goals. A lot of people say they really want to lose weight and will do anything in order to get there. Well, it’s not easy standing in the kitchen weighing out chicken 5 times a day so hopefully I will be able to figure out some kind of balance to help people get what they want and help them set goals with realistic time frames based on commitment etc.
I’m not sure if what I am doing is maintainable long term but only time will tell.
