Two-A-Day Challenge

It's a new year and I'm a little bored fitness wise.  While I won't say that I've just been going through the motions the past couple of weeks, I'm definitely not pushing myself as hard as I could either.

On the diet front I've mostly been keeping on track.  Although after the 12 Days of Tuna, keeping on track seems rather indulgent.  From July to December, I could probably count my cheat meals on one hand.  I'd need two or more hands to keep track since Christmas, not excessive but again, not as good as I should have been.  The real problem I've had lately is getting my 6 meals in and have had plenty of days where I'd eat just two meals a day.  Not good, not good at all.

Spring Break is looming and whether or not we go anywhere really depends on how Bellamy is doing, I want to look good regardless.  I mean really good.  "Damn, that guy is 38?" good.  We won't venture into DILF territory, but you get the picture.  How about GILLL?  Geek I'd Like to Look Like.  Think that will catch on?  "Yeah Melvin, that Thin Guy is a total GILLL!"

For the next 30 days I'm going to do two-a-day workouts.  The real difference is going to be extra cardio at night.  Right before we found out she was pregnant with Bellamy, my wife's trainer had her on something very similar.  She was ripped.

Since I'm a firm believer that Diet is King and Exercise is Queen I will ensure that I get my six meals a day.  I will put the following twists on my diet:  Limit my starchy carbs to the first 3 meals of the day.  Green fibrous carbs for the last three.  I also want to ensure that I eat fish at least 7 times per week, that's at least one meal a day.  Finally follow the principle of eating like a king in the morning and a pauper at night, or caloric tapering.  Oh yeah, since I'll be doing PM cardio, that means no wine.

My workouts will be as follows with added emphasis on turning the intensity level of my weight lifting up a notch or two.
