From Brian: Well, Week 9 prove to be the toughest week of the competition thus far. A two- pound loss doesn’t add up. I have been doing two a day workouts, watching my diet and I have witnesses at home to everything I have been doing. My trainer Steve up’d the intensity of my workouts. I was in the Navy 6 years and never once threw up at sea. I can count 4 times this season where I have almost come to that in training. Maybe its my body fighting back, maybe I’ve put on muscle mass to a greater degree than fat loss, maybe I need to tweak my diet a little. Maybe more cardio and less strength, maybe more strength and less cardio…it’s a mystery. All I know is while I am disappointed in two lbs…its still a positive number. I will continue to push, to eat well, to hammer my workouts, to stay positive and to let the cards fall where they they may. I guarantee you this….invite everyone back for an “after the Fittest Loser” weigh-in at week 20 and this contestant will be a rock and continue to reflect the qualities and mission statement put forward by Push Fitness.
