Improvement Warrior Optimal Journal- Entry #8
The following is a journal that I am keeping to track my progress as I attempt to make myself the best version of me. My intent of also blogging it is to show people that being the ultimate healthy version of you does not just mean changing your nutrition and working out.
There is a lot of other things that go into it. I am not like most other Coaches and Personal Trainers, or nutritionists, or health practitioners out there. I first consider myself a biohacker.
Definition of a bio-hacking: Do-it-yourself biology, biotechnological social movement in which individuals and small organizations study biology using the same methods as traditional research institutions.
I recently implemented something in late September that took my health and energy to a whole new level. I used to think I was a 10 in health most days before I started this, now I realize I was probably only around 7-7.5.
I will be alternating this blog journal on my other blogs. I will post the links below once I have them all.

Entry #8 11.8.18, 11.9.18, 11.10.18
Fasted a total of 81.5 hours. The hunger just wouldn't go away like it normally did so I knew it was time to end it. Missed record of 84 hours. I'll get it another time 🙂
This entry is covering Thursday- Saturday because I messed up on rotation of my blogs. Friday and Saturday fell asleep on couch both nights, breaking one of my rules of life— never fall asleep on the couch. Last night Rocky 4 and then Creed was on. Creed 2 open 11.21. It's basically the sequel to my fave movie of all-time and the reason I got into fitness and strength. But still shouldn't let that happen. Fell asleep way early so was dead tired for some reason.
