90 Days?!?

Has it really been 90 Days? It's hard to believe that a little over 90 Days ago I was sitting on my couch, playing video games, and eating pizza. I used to think that tomorrow was going to be the day I was actually going to start working out but when the next day came I kept saying: "nah, I'm too tired, I'll start tomorrow","had the longest day at work", "my favourite show is on TV right now", or even "my index finger hurts"... 90 Days ago I knew that something had to be done; not tomorrow or … [Read more...]

Carlos’ 90 Day Challenge Week 4: What’s Happening to Me???

Wow, I can't believe it's been 4 weeks since I started my first Blitz 90 Day Challenge. It's only been 30 days but the changes that I'm starting to see are there! My pants are starting to fit better, I don't feel as out of breath when I go up a flight of stairs, and for some reason I feel energized after a workout!

At first, when I was asked "why are you walking funny?" it felt awkward to say that I was working out and, on top of that, I was getting personal training. It felt like my pride was compromised in asking for help from professionals for something I … [Read more...]

My gift on my 33rd Birthday.

For the last month my wife has been asking me what I want for my 33rd birthday and I honestly didn't have a straight answer for her. As I was working out with Leigh, my trainer, on Thursday evening and I kept on reminding myself: Push pass the pain, push pass your own limits, break down the 'I can't do this' wall!  Engrain these movements  in to your mind, your soul, and your body so they they are muscle memory.  Make them mechanical. In the midst of doing step ups, sit ups, and finally a … [Read more...]

Carlos’ 90 Day Challenge: Day 1 the hardest decision…

It's often said that the hardest decisions are the ones worth making. Hi there, my name is Carlos Cuevas (you might know me as Goodwill Carlos from KooL 101.5). I'm getting my life back with Blitz' 90 Day Challenge! Back in 2009, I realized that my lifestyle was hurting me very badly; I was headed nowhere fast because I kept making the same poor decisions about food and exercise. I remember on September 18, 2009 I was sitting exactly at 2 months into my marriage, I was 28 years old and at … [Read more...]
