DATE: 1/9/2020

  • Had meetings in Philly from 8a-5p.
  • 3 days in a row where I haven't been Whole 30 compliant, this was planned out knowing I wasn't going to be able to make it happen on this trip as meals were specifically ordered for us.
  • Going to 76ers vs Boston game tonight.


  • 11:30a- Naff Naff Mediterranean (beef, lettuce, pickeled onions, pita)
  • 3p- Tastycake Cupcake & pita with garlic sauce
    • This was a weak point of the day. My back was extremely stiff and I was in pain as well as some conversation had been a little challenging and this was probably stress eating more than anything.
  • 9:30p- BBQ Burger with Fries
    • Definitely could have made a better choice in foods for this meal. There were salads on the menu and I think I was just overly hungry from not eating a real meal since 11:30a. These are the times when I need to realize that all foods in these moment will taste good so might as well make a good choice.
  • Today wasn't my best day eating. I ate out of emotion and because every second was so filled I wasn't able to eat easily. So instead I was relying on will power as much as possible and the later the day got the less will power I had.


  • Today was the first day so far this year that I haven't worked out. My back was way too locked up to be able to do anything and I had to overcome my pride and rest. I do have a goal to get 31 workouts this month but it doesn't mean I have to workout every day so I'm still able to stick to my goal.


  • Today’s was 3136 calories
    • Again, another day over 3k calories burnt on a day when I was pretty inactive is good. Normally back home my non active days are only about 2400 cals.

  • Today was a good strain day. It was a 12.6. My strain has been consistent the last couple days which should lead to a good recovery score soon.
  • TOTAL CALORIC DEFICIT FOR DAY: Calories burnt (WHOOP) - Calories intake (MFP)= 3136-3300= 164 surplus
  • Today was my first calorie surplus for the year. It was over by a small amount which is actually really reasonable for traveling.


  • Slept 6hrs 56min out of 9:05 needed which was a good 76% sleep score.
  • With as bad as my back felt this was a really good night sleep with that going on.
  • My recovery score was 62% which is a decent score. Shows I did a lot of mobility work during the day to help my back recover and getting ok sleep.
  • I went to bed at 11:57p.
    • This was a super late night for me. But this was because we were downtown at a 76ers game and I knew it was the last night with friends so it was worth the sacrifice.
  • My WHOOP band said I need 8:52 min of sleep tonight going into tomorrow.
    • My baseline sleep is 7:35min 

    • Strain of the day- 22min extra needed

    • Sleep debt- 55min extra needed


  • Another day spent on the foam roller and lacrosse ball. Also, a friend of mine in our mastermind meeting is a PT and he reset my SI joint and help me with some stretching to help get my left leg lengthened back out.


  • My back was still very locked up and just putting on my socks was hard.
  • Going to the 76ers game tonight.
  • Meetings can be very stressful because we are challenging each other to get the most we can out of our businesses. This can get a little stressful.
  • Knowing that Chicago was going to have bad weather when I flew back was in the back of my mind and was trying to see if I could get my flight changed.


  • Didn't eat the Tastycakes for breakfast.
  • Was able to get my plane ticket switched to fly out on Friday to avoid bad weather coming to Chicago.
  • Didn't eat anything at the 76ers game when everyone was eating crappy food.


  • An accountability buddy can go a long way. Even when traveling I enlist in accountability buddies. Joe is my workout partner and makes sure I get those in and Marshall is my nutrition buddy.
  • Today was a hard day to find wins because I felt like I didn't do as well as I could but that's when it's important to dig in and find the good that was there.
