So yesterday I did not take thrive, and I tried the good ol’ coffee. BAD IDEA. Today is back on Thrive. It feels better already. A pal is on day 2 and reports good results. Let’s keep logging and blogging! Today is ANGEL FIRE BIKE PARK day. Let’s do this!
So last night I hung out with Rob and Elise & the boys. We enjoyed beer, BBQ, the sights and sounds of nature. They seem pretty confident this side gig will turn into something bigger. I don’t know how it will go, or if it will ever become something more than a good experience in meeting new friends, but I’ll keep an open mind.
Last night I laid down around 1045, after a steak and 3 beers (over 3 hours, mind you). Usually I would awake groggy, or even hit snooze a couple of times.
Not this time. I had vivid dreams and awoke at 0442 when the raindrops in my dream matched the ones coming through my window. I’m awake and rested. No coffee for my morning ritual yet again, save a small cup of drip I shared with Jamie the other day - just bc it’s nice to share a coffee with a pal - not bc I was dragging.
I started on the full dose of Thrive today. It’s off to work in 5! Let’s see how the day goes. Until later!
Fruita’s 18 road trails were pretty sweet. Today the solution was PROTEIN. I needed to get back on the normal “hungry man” intake routine again. I think I noticed the dietary suppression for a hot minute, whether from the complete intake of nutrition early in the morning, or chemically based. At any rate today I felt dialed on the downs and charged on the ups. Sweet!
So It’s the end of day 2 and I figured now was as good a time as any to jot down some thoughts.
I made a french press today around noon, and I realized as I made it that I wasn’t really paying close attention to the water volume or to the timer. This is highly unusual for me. I’m quite OCD when it comes to my french press process. 6 scoops, water at 204, 8 mins of steep time.
Today I failed to measure my water volume for a half press, and forgot to set the timer. About 5 mins in I realized I didn’t even really need the coffee, so I dumped it out before even bothering to press it.
So, I had a ton of energy today, felt very focused (and relaxed, which is odd for me) and I was really productive. I spoke with a few people who are already quite athletic, and I think a couple of people are as curious as I am when it comes to being even healthier, more athletic, performing at a higher level, and all of the other things that come with good supplementation.
Alright. I still feel great, and I hope it continues. Yes I still have TONS of reservations about the whole MLM world and I don’t know if I’m really going to be able to make anything substantial happen, but I am certainly enjoying the bump from the supplements, and if a few of my buddies try it and enjoy the same benefits, for the next few years or more, then at least we will all be much faster on our bikes and on our feet.
At any rate, today was another good day. My shoulder/LUQ pain is really, really minimal. My legs and shoulders are BARELY sore from yesterday and all of the awesome thrashing we did. I’m ready to ride bikes tomorrow with JAIME on his “Bicycle Built For Two Billion” nationwide RV book tour, and it will ROCK.
This weekend I will start my book report on the product ingredient list. I intend to go through every piece of each product and use proper sources to validate the safety and efficacy of each ingredient. I hope the research proves fruitful, and I hope it helps others to make an informed decision.
Goodnight virtual world.
