    Thats what I like to hear!!!

    I'm guessing tickets for "the game" will be upwards of 1500/each. So anyone with a free ticket I'd love them forever. The game could produce one of the teams for the national title game, so it'll be a big one!

    Go Bucks!

    I mean no offense to Auburn, USC, West Virginia or the others...but to me, that will be the national title game...it's too bad one of them has to lose before the BCS.

    Day 6

    No weigh in today either...there will be one at the gym tomorrow though.


    Initial dose: 8:45 a.m. with tall glass of water.

    I got a lot of work around the house done this morning and was actually focused for a Sunday morning. We went out around 9:30-10:00 to do our usual Sunday routine.

    Second dose: 1:30 with a chicken breast sandwich.

    I watched a bit of the Cowboy/Titans game and around 3:30 I ate a tuna melt. I was busy all day with stuff around the house, laundry and all the stuff I didn't feel like doing during the week.

    Dinner: Pasta dish with chicken. You may see more simple carbs during the rest of this log, I'm going to need the energy. I'm not going to focus on them nor will I eat much more than 2000 calories as my goal is to be under 2000....but during a more cardio intensive training program, I think I should be eating more carbs.

    During the weekend I'm so unfocused and relaxed that I'm unable to give good information as I tend to drown that out and try to get my mind and body prepared for another week of work and training. This log will be more detailed during the week than the weekends....but you'll always get updates.

    Fun thought of the day: I'm excited about this new 4 weeks that I've planned for myself and my workout partner. It should push some limits and allow for some growth...and I don't think Bobby (workout partner) has sprinted in some time, so we'll be pushing past some limits there. He's playfully told me that he hates me in the gym, this next week he may actually mean it .

    Day 7

    Weight
    : 194

    Initial Dose
    : 5:35 with GM and WB.

    Workout was awesome this morning! I kicked my own ass and talk about sweat. I sweat through a hooded sweatshirt. I was focused and pumped and really had a good time in the gym. I think RAG2 will really help me with this current plan.

    Second dose
    : 11:45 right before lunch. I walked to the local Thai restaurant and was in another total sweat. I had some great Thai with some good quality protein from chicken and beef. I had to change my shirt when I got back to work as I sweat through my undershirt. I don't know if it was today, my workout, or if new effects are coming from RAG2. Either way I'm sweating and should be cutting weight.

    Dinner: I had peppered turkey breast, rice, and corn. Those precooked turkey breasts from Jeanie-O are excellent and a nice lean protein source...check them out if you need to change things up a bit, they taste great.

    Fun thought of the day: I had all my pills laid out last night (WB, RAG2, vitamin, fishoil, and sesamin), and my wife said I take more pills than old people. I wonder what she'll think when I buy some Green Bulge when it goes glycocamine free .

    Day 8


    Weight: 193


    Initial Dose
    : 6:15 with Kashi cereal.

    Another very busy day at work so I didn't have much time to reflect. I was very focused this morning though.

    2nd Dose: 11:45. Lunch today was out again...wife is out of town and I've just been too lazy to pack my lunch. I have been making good choices though. Today was mexican. We have a great local mom and pop mexican restaurant here in Denton, Mi Casita. I went out with my co-workers and had two soft beef tacos.

    This afternoon I spent training a new employee so I again didn't have much time to reflect, but it was kind of hectic with many student issues and I did sweat a bit.

    Dinner: I had leftovers tonight since I had to leave pretty much right after work to play tennis. Turkey and rice tonight.

    Tennis night! I sweat a ton tonight and I think my body is finally reacting to RAG2's thermogenics because I've been sweating a ton during my last two workouts. I played poorly tonight, but still won. I played Phillip who has a monster serve, but makes many mental errors. I too was having a problem finding the center of my racket tonight and had many mis-hits. I started off really poorly dropping the first three games, but then I came back and brought it to 4-4 and ended up winning 6-4. I played smart tennis even though I wasn't on my game. Once I get my sorry butt in shape, I think I'd like to enter some tournaments. We play at a fairly high level and I have now beat everyone in the group...I'm pretty proud of my game and now I need to work on speed and strength and I might be able to do some great things. Too bad I'm 29 or I'd think about bigger things.

    Fun thought of the day: The Cardinals take game one of the NLDS! I'm a huge Cardinals fan and even though they backed their way into the playoffs, I think they've got a good chance to represent the National League in the World Series. Go Cards!

    Day 9


    Weight: 193. I think I might be retaining water. I've been sweating a bunch lately, but not dropping weight like I expect. Does anyone think an increase in sodium will help this, or should I just stay the course?


    Initial Dose: 5:30 a.m. With GM and WB.

    Great workout this morning. My partner wasn't there so I didn't lift heavy, but still had a solid workout. I'm liking this whole body workout because it makes me sweat so much, but I don't get the pumps that I was with the more individual muscle group workouts. After the whole body I did another session of HIIT, wore my butt out.

    Had typical protein, xtend pre and post workout. FYI-I'm running very low on Xtend and will run out before the log is over. I'm not going to replace it with anything until the RAG2 is gone, then I'm going to get some PW.

    Second Dose: 11:45 right before lunch. Lunch today was cereal at the fun cereal bar. It's a nice lean, carb filled way to fuel the rest of my day.

    I had an interesting experience and I think it was from the RAG2, my first energy crash at around 2:00. I was very lethargic and could have fallen asleep at my desk. This was the first time I felt anything like this while on RAG2 so it is merely a guess that it was the culprit, and probably wrong. I think I also need to get more sleep since I'm doing a more cardio intensive workout. Either way, this was the first afternoon that wasn't productive while on RAG2.

    Dinner: I had two turkey burgers on wheat bread with a slice of cheese...and a glass of milk (always skim milk). It was a nice lean protein source to end the day. I'll probably have a glass of milk before bed.


    FYI: I tweaked my lower back about 2 weeks ago and it's finally gotten bad enough for me to go to the chiropractor. This will not effect my workouts or cardio unless he finds something horribly wrong. I'll keep you posted, but I'm going to assume that after a few adjustments, I'll be back to normal and I plan on fighting through this discomfort and working hard towards my goal and providing you with a decent account of how this supplement works in the real world.

    Fun thought of the day: I got Packers tickets! Yes, I know that means nothing to most of you out there, but I'm a Packer fan and get to see Bret play in his final year (or so he says). We're seeing the Nov 19th game against the Patriots...so a match up between to excellent quarterbacks. I'm sure my Packers will get their butts whipped, but getting tickets is so hard to do down here in Texas...I'm a happy camper.

    Day 10

    No weigh in this morning.

    Initial Dose: 6:20 a.m. with Kashi cereal.

    I was training an employee again this morning so no real time to reflect, but I was focused all morning.

    Lunch: Tacos once again. I'll be getting back into my normal routine next week...this is just a hectic week around my house.

    2nd dose: I forgot to take it before I ate, in fact I forgot to take it until 2:00 p.m.

    I had another energy crash this afternoon. I don't think I'm eating enough calories and RAG2 is doing too good of a job supressing my appitite. I did not eat either of my snacks because I just wasn't hungry. I need to find a happy medium here.

    Dinner: I ate more at dinner than I have during the past ten days. I ate two medium sized chicken breasts (baked) with a side of bread stuffing. Hopefully those calories will help me have a quality workout tomorrow morning and I'll try something new to help me in the afternoon.

    Off day working out as I'm just fatigued. I'll be ready to go tomorrow. I also wonder if the slight pain and discomfort in my back has anything to do with this, it has been worse the past few days. I'm seeing the chiro on Saturday to get this fixed.

    Fun thought of the day: Cards went up 2-0! woohoo!

    Day 11

    Weight: 194 lbs

    Initial dose: 5:30 a.m. with GM and WB

    Good workout this morning. It was good because I fought through it all and didn't slack off. It wasn't good because I'm very fatigued and my darned back is out of whack. I did another full body routine, the third variation of this so I get to work different angles and also not get bored with the same routine three times a week. I sweat a ton like usual when taking RAG2.

    This morning at work I just fought through the day. I don't know if I'm getting sick or what, but this fatigue is kicking my butt.

    Lunch: I grabbed some chinese for lunch. Sesame chicken...it was decent and a small portion so I didn't pig out like I used to do with Chinese.

    2nd dose: 2:00 again. I meant to do it this time to try and fight afternoon energy crash. It worked pretty well. I had lots of meetings this afternoon and I was focused throughout.

    Dinner: I haven't eaten yet. I'll grab a light snack, probably leftover turkey here soon. The appitite suppressant in RAG2 is amazing. I could seriously go all day without eating on this stuff. I'm not hungry now, but know I need some food.

    I'm going to sleep most of this weekend and I'm seeing the chiro tomorrow morning and hopefully I'll be good to go for monday. Don't expect too much this weekend out of me, but I'll stay on schedule with the RAG2.

    Also, expect a 'semi-formal' product review from me after day 15.


    Fun thought of the day
    : The Dallas Mavericks were on my campus this afternoon for a scrimage. It was free for faculty and staff so I went. It was really fun and those guys played hard for pre-season. I wish them the best and hopefully they can bring a championship to Dallas.

    Day 12 & 13

    As stated before, I took two days off and didn't do jack. Only excersise I got was house chores. It was nice and I feel much better for it. I think I need to go to bed earlier and eat more carbs on this current workout.

    I took RAG2 on schedule and it did not effect any sleep patterns or afternoon naps . It did keep my body warm all weekend and I actually think that helped me sleep and rest.

    Day 14

    Weight: 194

    Initial Dose: 5:30 a.m. with GM and WB

    Good workout this morning. I felt rested, energized, and while my lower back isn't 100%, I was able to go hard this morning. Had a nice sweat and pushed around some good weight.

    Good energy throughout the whole morning. I was training a new employee and helping lots of students.

    Lunch: We celebrated a co-workers birthday so lunch was at a Chinese Buffet. Normally that spells disaster for me, but I did pretty good. I stayed away from everything fried and only had one plate of food...normally I take all you can eat Chinese as a personal challenge, but I did good today.

    2nd Dose: 1:30 p.m.

    This afternoon was hectic. I did feel very focused and got through it with little 'bad' stress feelings. Normally an afternoon like this completly exhausts me, but I fought through this one pretty well. Lots of students with lots of issues.

    I did not eat my afternoon snack as I wasn't hungry at all after the 2nd dose...and typically Chinese has me hungry an hour or two reguardless of how much I eat. Again, the appitite supressants of RAG2 work incredibly well.

    Dinner: A pasta dish with shrimp in an herb garlic sauce (very light sauce) with bell peppers.

    I went to bed early as I'm hoping that is a factor as to why I was so fatigued last week. 9:30 I had the lights off...it typically won't be that early, but I was tired enough to go to sleep that early last night.

    Fun thought of the Day
    : The Cards are in the NLCS! They have their hands full with the Mets, but I have faith.

    Day 15

    Weight: 194

    Initial Dose: 7:30 with cereal.

    Busy morning as we have to employees to train now. Many students with issues as early registration is about to open up. Great focus and wasn't hungry all morning.

    2nd dose:
    11:55. Lunch was brought to me as I had to work through lunch. Burger with cheese and katchup and a water. Not much food, but I was too busy to realize it. I was not hungry all afternoon either.

    No tennis tonight, it was raining. Therefore, no excersise today...not by choice.

    Dinner was chicken breast with a side of pasta with cheese. I had to force this small amount of food down too. I'm kind of confused, my caloric intake is very low right now, but the pounds aren't coming off. I do notice a difference in the mirror though...half way through and I can see results.


    Half-way evaluation:

    Cost: 9/10 $27 at BB.com that's less than 50 cents a dose, under $1 a day...pretty darned good in my book.

    Appitite supressant: 9.5/10...only reason it's not a 10 is that I have very little to compare it to. Outstanding!

    Weight loss agent: 7/10...only 15 days in, so the jury is still out....but I've lost more pounds on other products.

    Thermogenic: 8/10...again, I've had other products that make me sweat more, but this one is pretty darned good and warms me up for my workouts pretty darned quickly.

    Overall: after only 15 days I have to rank this product as excellent. Again, I don't have but 2 other products to compare it to, but overall RAG2 is much better than Lipo6 or the ephedra products for me...overall that is, I like not having the shakes and the mild effects of this product even though I've lost more pounds with the others. After a 15 day review, I would buy this product again.

    Day 16

    Weight: 194 still

    Initial Dose
    : 5:30 a.m. with GM and WB

    Another excellent workout this morning. We did variation B of the whole body workout that I created. It works each muscle group, but at different angles than variations A or C. I sweat a ton and had very good energy in the gym. We finished with HIIT and was exhausted.

    Normal supplementation and water went down fine, but I did not have my mid-morning snack as I was busy and wasn't hungry enough to worry about it.

    2nd Dose: 11:55 with lunch. Lunch is finally back on track. Turkey sandwich, yogurt, string cheese, and water. That's normal and hopefully things will slow down and I can keep things that way.

    I had a presentation to give this afternoon, so there was added stress and sweat as it was and the RAG2 kept me really warm. All went well and I had a good afternoon.

    Dinner: Mahi-mahi on a bed of rice and steamed brochli and carrots. My diet is finally back on schedule. I'm getting frustrated at the number 194 and hopefully this is the answer. My goal was to lose 10 pounds on RAG2 which means 6 more to go in 15 days...that's still my goal, but it's not looking good right now.


    Fun thought of the day
    : Damn Rain! First it stops me from playing tennis, now it rains out the cardinal game. Oh well, I had planned on sitting on my ass all night, but I got out and did some house chores instead. NLCS Prediction: Cards in 7.

    Day 17

    Initial Dose: 7:30 a.m. with protein shake...woke up early, not enough time for solid food.

    Not much to report about the morning. Typical work and I think I'm getting so used to the RAG2 that I don't notice a change in focus, body temp, or behavior.

    2nd dose: 11:45 right before lunch. Lunch was leftover turkey burger with yogurt and a water.

    The afternoon was hectic as I was on-call and had to see students. I fought through a fairly stressful afternoon like a champ. A little bit of fatigue set in around 3:30, but that's not so bad considering it's the end of the week.

    Dinner: Chicken breast with pasta and a light cheese sauce.

    No excersise tonight and that's probably for the best...i'm going to rest and get ready to kick butt tomorrow morning.

    Fun thought of the day: Cards are on t.v.! 0-0 top of the 2nd. Go Cards!

    Day 18

    Weight: 193-about time!

    Initial dose: 5:45 with GM and WB

    Another great workout. I'm really liking this whole body routine that I'm on. I'm not making any strength gains, but it feels more aerobic and exhausts me completely. I am noticing changes in vascularity and now that I am dropping some fat, I'm noticing more muscle tone. This was week 2 of this 4 week whole body routine, we'll see what the next two weeks bring.

    Normal post workout supplementation.

    2nd Dose: 11:45 before lunch. Lunch was cereal and I think that was a mistake today. I think I needed more protein in that meal because the afternoon was hard to fight through. I had no focus this afternoon and just wanted to go home. I was tired and ready for the weekend.

    Dinner: Baked turkey breast with rice. I wasn't very hungry for dinner, but really thirsty. I think I got in a whole gallon of water after dinner, which is a lot for me and put my daily total around 1.5 gallons, which is good, but not my norm.

    Fun thought of the Day: Cards won! Series tied at 1 game apiece and they're headed back to St. Louis. Go Cards!

    Day 19 & 20

    The weekend! Not much to post as I try and give my body 2 days of rest. There are two things I need to mention, Friday night I slept forever...12 hours...that's the first time I did that since I was an undergraduate. I think my body is telling me that I need more sleep overall, and I'm going to try and listen. The second thing was that I had a cheat meal on Saturday night. We took my mother-in-law out for Mexican food. I had enchiladas. It was a calorie dense meal, but I really don't regret it.

    I supplemented as normal and took my RAG2 4-6 hours apart. It was a nice and relaxing weekend and I'm ready to go hard on Monday.

    Day 20

    Weight: 193

    Initial Dose
    : 5:30 with GM and WB

    Another good workout. I upped the weight on each excersise and upped the intensity. I think all the rest I got during the weekend paid off. Great time in the gym and the amount of sweat proved it.

    Typical morning, lots of students and lots of issues. No out of the ordinary feelings. No hunger feelings as usual.

    2nd dose: 11:55 with lunch. Turkey sandwich with water. Not very hungry even after a solid workout.

    Same in the afternoon...early registration is coming up so my schedule will be hectic from here until Thanksgiving. Not hungry all day.

    Dinner
    : Turkey Chili and Tuna melt. I was finally hungry and I got in some good protein. I've also been drinking a lot of water today.

    Fun thought of the day
    : We've needed the rain...thank you clouds, my lawn needed your help.

    Day 21

    Initial Dose: 7:30 with cereal.


    Typical morning at work. We're getting busier as it gets closer to early registration.

    2nd Dose: 11:45 with lunch. The office went out to the cereal bar, so I had cereal for the first two meals of the day. Not bad, I think my body could use the fiber anyway.

    Afternoon was busy. I'm not feeling the effects of the RAG2 for energy when I'm not working out as I once did...either that or I'm too busy to notice.

    Dinner: I had two small meals before and after tennis. The first was some rice with chicken, the second was two slices of whole wheat toast with natty pb and honey.

    Cardio: Tennis night! I played well and sweat a ton as it's still kinda warm down here. The first set I played was singles, I won 6-2 and should have won 6-0 but he broke me twice as I'm trying to work on a kick serve. The next set was doubles and I played with the guy I just beat and we won 6-0.

    I found a way to get more competition, my university has created a staff tennis league that is free for those of us who are rec center members. This will be nice and i'll get a chance to really see how good I am. The league starts after my last dose of RAG2, so no updates in the log...just thought I'd share though...

    Fun thought of the day: Cards up 3-2! One more win and we're in!
