Improvement Warrior Optimal Journal- Weekend Edition- Entry #14
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 #14 11.16- 11.18.18
Friday: Was first snow that stuck to the ground, so here everybody becomes idiot drivers. Took me 62 minutes to get home from gym. Normally 28-30 minutes. So completely missed first session even though blocked by big dark clouds. Would be the story all day pretty much.
11:34 @ 751 sun 100% obstructed.
11:09 in between classes. About 40% obstructed. Would be last I would see of it for the day.
#1 751 am- This morning was just me and the pups. Sun was 100% covered but above and to the side were big cracks letting it all in. I guess I was getting a bunch of it as Dr. Kruse says the sun is non-linear.
#2 818 am. Went back out to read and sun popped out
#3 all cold tub sun was shining and then got another 8:00 afterwards.
Friday- 4 sessions for 33 minutes
Saturday- 5 sessions for 1 hour 21 minutes. Includes workout and raking leaves.
Sunday- 8 sessions for 1 hour 10 minutes
Friday: 22:23 36 degrees
Saturday- 24:38 36 degrees
Sunday: 13:37. 43 degrees- After this was sun was in full effect so spent. 8:00 ‘drying off’ with sun. Decided to cut time down and see if that would spare all the shivering and work back up in time. It worked.
Taking my temperature last two days my temp has been 97 and then 96.5 degrees. Is this normal?
Friday- Had to take hot shower only after the cold tub. Couldn’t stop shivering. Did workout immediately after. Whenever do just hot I always feel lethargic and spacy and during indoor part of workout could not push as hard as normally do. But when went outside all that changed. Cold re-invigorated self and finished feeling awesome.
3:26 in cold
Saturday- cold: 2:32
Sunday- Cold shower only- 2:11
