June just flew by and wow.  Still keeping the faith.  Did not have to travel or do much outside of one trip down to Ocala during a Septic tank episode.  Dragging Chey around to swim and driving lessons.  At this point I am 817 Days without a workout break. My Vivoactive 3 is killing it and I am loving it.  It is really simply awesome.   So I am gonna step up my cardio this month; kinda grown a bit of a over hang on the front and I can’t have that.  I know it is typical of the age, but I need to get back to seeing a semblance of abs.

This remains true – Still giving much love to DareBee with my dalies and Daily Dare.  I simply love it.  I am feeling fit and strong

The beard continues to be a part of my life and still hated by the wife.  I hope to make it to the end of the year.  It is getting harder and harder because she is hating so much right now and putting the screws to me about getting rid of it.  

Chey ended up pulling out all A’s – she was able to do quite well on her EOC which pushed her over the top.  We are waiting on AP and SAT results right now.  And also working on swimming and driving this summer. 

(Kept from previous foreword) – Additionally, I have added a couple layers of complexity or demand to my workout.  First, I am religiously sticking to DareBee and the Daily Dare; I am also, keeping the preliminaries.  Second, I have added a consecutive component – so, starting with the end of IronBorn (9 April 2017), I have worked consecutively.  I intend to push for 60 straight day, then see if I can get to 90.  So far I am enjoying it and my body seems to be rising to the occasion.  I caught the flu a few day before the end of the last phase (around May 2017) – I worked through it and was back up in only a couple of days.  It appears pushing through and forcing my body to continue working, I was able to push the flu out of my way.  I am also continuing my virtual push to OKC via Benton.  I am really enjoying that but I will have to pick up the mileage here in the next phase as I am running out of time. Keep leaning forward.
