Well, I’m back!  The very same day as I wrapped up my 30 day challenge, I booked a flight up into the mountains to visit family.  No internet, no cellphone coverage, totally cut off from the civilized world, just me and the fresh air.  And sleep, LOTS of glorious sleep.  I mostly slept.  Home cooked food, no supplements, lots of water, air and sleep.  Drove into the nearby town a few times to hit the gym, so I didn’t totally decompose, but just 2 relatively light fullbody workouts in that 1 week of time.

Sometimes you need a week to recover and reset and retreat and revitalize.  This was my week off.  Not a week to eat junk food, just to rest.  And did I mention it was cold?  Minus 30 without the windchill, yikes!  I tried to go for a few walks, but after about 15 min, I was like FORGET THIS.  So I went on a few realllly short walks, shovelled snow, split logs for the fire, took some pics!

Anyways, I am back and ready to start working out for real again!  I know this wasn’t really a workout-type post, but there will be many of those to come in the near future.  Thanks for reading!
