New Motivation for getting my 6 pack

I'm reading: New Motivation for getting my 6 packTweet this!
As I stated in my last post, I was blessed with the birth of my son last Monday. Honestly, it was quite a surreal experience and I will never forget it!

Even though I had my share of hospital food and take-out while my wife and son were in the hospital I still manged to lose my 2 pounds this week and am down to 190lbs! I even managed to get 3 workouts in this week!

There will be some changes with my goals going forward though.

Getting 7 hours of continuous sleep will be impossible for the next few months.

I think getting to the gym 6 days a week will also be very hard too!

So I have come up with a plan to try and stick to my long-term goal of 6 pack abs.

First I am going to try and get to bed a lot earlier ( I already blew that one tonight, lol) so I can get some more sleep. I am also going to schedule a nap for myself during the weekends.

Since I will not be able to get to the gym as much as I wanted, I plan to hit the heavy bag a lot more and pick more workouts from the Turbulence Training 6 Month Body Weight Manual or the many other TT Body Weight Workouts for my off-day workouts.

Surprisingly my eating has been very clean since we left the hospital. The new grandparents have been cooking for us, but knowing that I am trying to reach my goal, they have been cooking some very healthy and delicious meals!

Once I am a couple more weeks into the competition I will re-evaluate my weight and measurements. If I feel I have not progressed I may start doing Eat Stop Eat two times a week instead of one.
