The diet is going great. No cheating at all...mainly because I love bacon. My wife has done a great job of helping me with meals. She is much more creative than I am (and a LOT hotter, which has nothing to do with cooking, but its a great perk of being married to her).
My workouts are still spotty. My schedule makes regular workouts very difficult, but if I am going to win this then I have to make time.
I forgot to put up my stats for the beginning of this whole thing. So, fwiw...
Waist: 41 inches
Difference between me and Matthew McConaughey: To borrow a phrase from Jesus...As far as the east is from the west
I hope that by the end of the year, I will improve all of these stats. (OK, the bodyfat number is a bit exagerated, but the rest is totally accurate)
