C-3-P-Yo Photography

Fans, As I am sure many of you marveled over the photos taken of me, I cannot take all the credit. I am a man that gives credit when credit is due and in this case it is to my photographer: Mr. Chris Younts. He may not take the best photos, and he may not include your full-face, but for the price there is no one better. My payment to him came in the form of items, not cold hard cash like most business transaction work, but Chris has a good scheme I guess for this way he doesn’t have to pay taxes, and his business is always able to write-off its year-to-year loses. All he required from me in form of payment was a 6” subway sandwich (as shown in the attached picture) and a pair of tube socks. I found the tube socks in the trashcan after he left my house. I don’t want to even start to think what he did with them. If you would like to contact C-3-P-Yo Photography you can reach them at 214-476-1348. JZ

PLYO

June 3, 2009 by

Fans,

I just finished another round of plyo, and for whatever reason, aside from Kempo that is the easiest for me.  It is very tough don’t get me wrong here, but I am able to compete with the roided-out douche bags all the way until the end. 

Just a quick update for my fans.  Back to my project.

Fans,

Later this week I will be adding action shots for your enjoyment and pleasure.  Mr. Chris Younts is the photographer that I have decided to commission.  I recommend / urge that Joseph does this as well. 

Peace,

To Make Up For Memorial Day

May 31, 2009 by

Joe Fox is doing two workouts today. Yes, two. Deuce.

In the spirit of my self-awakening I have been reading again. Namely, a book on my man Che Guevara. He is my personal hero. I won’t go into details but the man was an icon.

He has the Fox-Like quality some call narcissism. But that is normal to the masses to judge people like us. Nobody fully realizes what it is to be a Fox or a Che.

I found this quote from him to the love of his life as to why he couldn’t see them having a future:

“I know how I love you and how much I love you, but I cannot sacrifice my inner freedom for you; it means sacrificing myself, and I am the most important thing in the world, as I have already told you.”

Cold hard fact. The Foxes know how special they are as Che did. Some take it as a knock on the brothers, but they just don’t understand what encapsulates us…greatness…

Press Release

May 29, 2009 by

Joe Fox received an official warning from the Board of FOX90X today. Chairman, Aaron Clark, said, “We are on the honor system here, and we commend Joe for his honesty and desire for an intense workout. We are proud of what he’s accomplished to date, but he’s got to follow the program. He received a light warning, and we’re counting on him to stick with it from here on out.” Joe Fox had switched Tony Horton’s prescription for a Kenpo workout with an extra dose of Plyometrics. Plyo is considered one of the toughest workouts and Joe was looking for “Extreme.” Steadman Von Steadman, Worlds Most Interesting Man and FOX90X Senior Vice President of Bodily Development said, “Foxes think they are smarter than everyone, even Tony Horton. We just have to keep them honest now and then.”

Memorial Day

May 25, 2009 by

Fans of Me,

I incorporated a new rule: Holidays do not count as P90X days.

I spent Memorial Day as always, starting with Apocalypse Now and drinking. The USA napalming the VC makes me feel very introspective about how wonderful our country is. However (during the puppy scene) when Martin Sheen shot the woman because the other ridiculous men in his unit wanted to bring her to the hospital to have her taken care of. It was deemed ‘depressing’ so I took it out. Against my will. The roomate is a pussy-pants.

So I moved on by drinking some beers outside with my Japanese head band on:

In celebrating this great holiday I thought about P90X as I had not worked out today. I felt bad. So I will be more committed and serious about, and not let myself talk myself into not working out because of a holiday. This is what I told myself.

Today Is My Day Off

May 23, 2009 by

…As I cannot move. I am going to the hour long stretching DVD then to a local pub for a few drinks.

If any of you readers dog Yoga then you are ignorant. I like to make fun of things like soccer and Coldplay by calling them names closely associated with the homosexual community. If a guy plays soccer I would make fun of him while at the same time realizing it is a hard sport. If in flipping through someone’s I-Pod I see Viva La….Whatever The F*ck then I will rib them but at the same time slightly respect their argument that Parachutes was a very good album because a lot of people I know and respect music-wise have told me that. Will I ever play soccer or listen to the first Coldplay album? Absolutely not. But I know soccer is hard (I hate it though. I mean really?) and perhaps that Chris Martin fun boy did piss out something some years ago; so although I will give you a hard time and never act like I feel different, deep down, I do a little a tiny, little bit.

When a friend of mine of the male gender says he has tried Yoga, I would lose a great deal of respect for that person. Then the whole ‘dude it is really hard’ or ‘I was sore for a week!’ thing I saw as complete and total garbage. If a friend of mine or prospective new friend said or I was told were into Yoga = Dead, gone, worm food, a mouse fart in gail force winds.

I will, from this point forth judge men who do Yoga, but at the same time give them the benefit of the doubt. F- that Zen sh*t, but the physical act of it alone is EXTREMELY hard. I challenge any guy out there who gives his girlfriend, wife, co-worker, limp wristed guy friend everyone questions, a hard time about Yoga being some type easy work out routine or that its for the weak to take them up on the offer one night. Two things will happen:

1 – You will realize that it is indeed VERY difficult

2 – You will score some points with your significant other and maybe, it’ll lead to…you know…but you will deny for the one time in your relationship, in a twist of fate use the ‘I’m too tired’ excuse, but you will actually mean it.

Signing Off – A Foxy Humbled (But also a Foxy inspired!!!)

ALLEN’S WEIGH-IN!!!!!!

May 23, 2009 by

Fans,

Yesterday was my off day.  I intended to workout, but I needed a drink.  I went out with Chris and Courtney, and we had a good time.  We ate some great sushi, and then headed to a bar in Addison that had a nice outdoor patio.

We probably sat there for a couple of hours, shot the shit, etc.  They also played a bunch of cheesy 80’s songs, including one of my personal favorites by Journey, “Don’t stop believing.” I thought that was rather fitting considering the day I had, in addition to the competition we are undertaking.  Ok, I’m sorry to ramble on so much, but the reason I posted was to post my current weight.

This morning I weighed 191 pounds.  Let’s put this into perspective: my peak weight was around 215, and three weeks ago I weighed 204.  That is 13 pounds in three freaking weeks – incredible, and it shows hard work pays off. Now this ins’t due to the P90X, considering it’s only been two days, but it is a product of me working out, eating right, limiting my alchohol intake, and in some cases, simply not eating.

Anyways, I received the P90X meal plan via email from Mr. Saviers (you know, that “fast and furious” guy), and I have been following it very stricktly for the past two weeks.  I recommend it to anyone who is trying to lose weight (Also bear in mind the diet has only been a part of it, and I have been working my soon-to-be little fanny off).  It is not a gimmick diet like the “South Beach” or “Low Carb,” etc.  It is what all diets should be based on: calorie intake verse calorie outtake.

Anyways, I was asked to post my weight and I have done so.  I also added a couple of more heighlights in there as well.

Thanks,

Allen

P.S. If you would like me to forward you the diet plan, put your email address in the comment section below this post.  I will not only email it to you, but explain how it works, and what foods per food group I have selected.
