Yoli: Better Body System Week 1

Training your body to be healthier.

After a few months of thinking and planning, we finally started the using Yoli and following their suggested daily meals. I'm not going to lie; the decision to go through Yoli was made because we wanted to lose weight. This is our initial goal. And getting used to eating less and making healthier eating choices would just come second. There are people close to us that have gone through Yoli and we have heard a lot of good things about it.

These are my initial measurements:
Weight: 209.6 lbs
Waist: 43.5
Right Thigh: 27
Left Thigh: 27
Right Arm: 14
Left Arm: 14
Hips: 44

Yoli will pretty much get your metabolism going. So you will have 5 'meals' in a day. 
* Passion Drink
* Breakfast (Shake only on protein days), with a fruit on meal days
* Mid-morning Snack (2 to 4 oz of protein)
* Lunch (2 to 4 oz of protein), with veggies, complex carb and fruit on meal days
* Mid-afternoon Snack (2 to 4 oz of protein) + passion drink
* Dinner (Shake only)

What goes into each snack and lunch differs from days 1,2,4,6 and days 3,5,7. Days 1,2,4,6 are considered protein days while days 3,5,7 are meal days. The only difference is that on meal days you can have a little bit of complex carb, veggies and fruits with your protein without exceeding the given calorie count.

I thought that going through first week would be bad. Because it'll be such a change in my diet. But the day went fast and I didn't even feel it. The mid morning snack and mid afternoon snack kept me from getting hungry.

At the end of week 1 here are my measurements:
Weight: 201.8 lbs
Waist: 42
Right Thigh: 26
Left Thigh: 2
Right Arm: 14
Left Arm: 14
Hips: 44

Appreciate The Good Things

Last week, on drive to work or home, I kept seeing reminders that California is in a drought and that we should limit water use. 

I just wanted to share a photo I took at Getty a while back. To me, this photo just shows the beautiful things we have and we should learn to appreciate what we have now.

Video Games: Madden 17 NYG-CLE First Drive Analysis

Playing video games have always been a hobby and on top of that I love playing the Madden Series. Although, I don't buy it yearly; the notion of building your own franchise has always been an interesting thing. So I thought this would be a good time to start a post that analyzes my first offensive drive in each Madden game I play from now on.

On this post, we'll take a look at the Season 1, New York Giants - Cleveland Browns. This first offensive drive that we would look at started with a touch back from the kickoff. Cleveland just scored a touchdown and we're immediately down 7 - 0.
First play, I thought there was a good gap on the right hand side of the line. So I audible and changed the play to a run play.
The second play was a RB screen pass that I thought would've worked. But instead the defense made a good play slicing through the blockers and tackling the RB for a 4 yard loss.

On 3rd and 9, Shephard gets open up in the middle for a long pass. This worked bec…
