新年快樂! Braved the human traffic in Singapore's #Chinatown with my fellow "dogs" @jeredan_conde and @carladconde! After more than three decades of friendship, it's my first time to travel outside the country with my #brotherfromanothermother, Jerdy! Last night's countdown was fun, not because of the fireworks, but because of the very best people I spent the CNY eve with!
A hefty serving of lamb ragu with shirataki noodles partnered with a beautiful pad thai salad for an #lchf and #jerf despedida dinner for the coach and best buddy, @jeredan_conde, as he heads to Pasadena for the @bulletproof 5th Annual Biohacking Conference! Bon voyage, bro! So stoked for you! See you next month!
When your best buddy and coach's birthday coincides with your trip to Singapore, schedule the birthday dinner three weeks earlier!
An advance happy birthday to my dear, dear brother, @jeredan_conde! Glad that we found time to celebrate your birthday over the healthiest of meals. More than your birthday, I'd like to celebrate your life and your contribution to countless individuals in helping them become better versions of themselves through functional fitness, biohacking, and nutrition. So proud of you, bro! Looking forward to another 35 years of #teamlongterm epicness with you!
The results are finally out!
After 15 months of being under the functional fitness and nutrition program of coach @jeredan_conde, my medical exam results reveal that my liver, pancreas, and other internal organs are all in great shape, and that my blood sugar level is perfectly normal (mine is 80.75 mg/dl, normal range is 70-105 mg/dl). One of the things that Jerdy said that made perfect sense to me is that when we do the right things consistently, we shouldn't worry about any medical test results or inbody results. Bottom line is that we can't cram our way to fitness and health. Aristotle once said, "Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. WE ARE WHAT WE REPEATEDLY DO. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit." Similarly, our well-being, fitness, and health (or lack thereof) are brought about by the little things that we do on a daily basis. No wiggle room for cheating, no time for excuses. Our every little action affects our lives either positively or negatively. Therefore, we are not defined by New Year's resolutions but by our daily decisions. Period.
I'm immensely grateful for the dedication and the unwavering support of my coach and best buddy @jeredan_conde in making sure that my journey will be defined by forward steps no matter how slow or difficult the process can be at times. I wouldn't have done it without you, bro. Thanks so much! Words will never be enough! I would like to also thank @carladconde who has rooted for the success of my fitness journey since day one. You're the best, Carla! Huge thanks too to Dr. Alvin Dimaculangan for teaming up with Jerdy in coming up with #TheLiveFitExperiment, a pioneering program that seeks to uplift the well-being of the Filipino by bringing together functional fitness, nutrition, and medicine.
This is just the beginning, guys! Looking forward to more success stories and transformed lives!
Earlier today, Coach @jeredan_conde and Dr. @dimaculangana teamed up for the official launch of the #TheLiveFitExperiment at @crossfitinfinitas. So stoked over this holistic fitness and wellness program that aims to improve the quality of life of the Filipino by integrating the very best of the worlds of exercise, nutrition, and medicine. Looking forward to witnessing the journeys of all the pioneering participants and, of course, I'm excited to see their results after 12 weeks! They couldn't be in better hands!
From personal experience, I must say that my life changed from how coach Jerdy calibrated my fitness and wellness protocols for over a year now. More than the #weightloss, the real reward of being under coach Jerdy's wing is the overall lifestyle upgrade that I continue to enjoy. To say that he is a hands-on coach would be an understatement! It's been more than a year since I last had gluten, desserts, other inflammatory foods, and even trans fats. Never felt better!
Congrats in advance to the entire team behind the LiveFit Experiment!
So proud of my #SummerBuddies partner, @bosschua! Glad to have won the Summer Buddies #FatLoss division with this guy! I wouldn't have gone through the competition with any other partner! His endurance and strength in the workouts gave me the push I needed! Cheers to brotherhood and fitness, bro! This victory is just the beginning of our long-term fitness journey.
A special shout-out to my coach and one of my dearest and best(est) buddies, @jeredan_conde, for the bespoke fitness and nutrition programming since May of last year. I wouldn't have progressed in the way that I did without you, bro. In fact, I wouldn't even have taken seriously my own fitness journey had you not taken me under your wing when I was at my worst/heaviest state. Thanks for being "surgical" in your handling of my case. Cheers to you, bro! Solid #teamlongterm!
