Gym and grocery shopping after. When I lived in the city in the heart of Montreal, I would eat out maybe 2-3 times a week. Living in my new house, maybe 2-3 times a month, barely really. There’s only 1 restaurant in the city I live. Yes, ONE! It’s as residential area as it gets!

Rest day. Hanoi, πŸ‡»πŸ‡³… Bourdain made you looked so attractive. Vietnam is an amazing country! Food is beyond good. People are very friendly. And everything is dirt cheap! I am aiming for early 2017. It’s a simply a must!

Gym this morning. 365th consecutive week of training today! Who the hell does that? I am crazy. What can I say? But man… what an incredible journey this has been so far. Documenting my fitness journey on a daily basis really helped reminding me how far I came along. People thought that I was going to quit within 30 days lol
I mean… that’s not people hating, it’s more how it really is usually. This lifestyle isn’t a walk in the park to achieve and even gets harder to maintain. I’ll always remember a text from my #1 boo Hoan Van who said he believed in me when I announced that I was planning to train all around the world and help promote a healthy lifestyle to whoever I ran into. 
And so far, I can say that my goal has been reached. I may not be the typical fitness person with thousands of followers, but I am ok with that. I know that some people whether local at my job to Aussies, some folks in Asia and Europe as well as some in South America… were inspired to eat healthier, be physically active on a regular basis and sleep better. And that is all I can ask for! 
If my journey can help even just one person in this world, then Operation GQ will be a success in my books. And even if it doesn’t inspire or help anyone, it will not stop as a result. I love being healthy way too much to ever go back to the old me. #NEVERGIVEUP

Gym in the morning, 7K Run in the evening. Tomorrow will be the start of my 365th consecutive week of training and it will be my 7th year anniversary on September 29th. Without self-discipline, it would have just been another failed attempt!

I LOVE my new juicer. I’ve been using it every single day so far. I drink the same green detox mix: green kale, spinach, celery, cucumber, green apple, lemon, fresh ginger and mint. Perfect to start the day or in between meals!

Legs this morning. Being able to do a super clean and heavy squat, that’s the fun of going to the gym. It was definitely not an overnight process. I, myself, used to have a weak form. You just gotta start somewhere and most of all… #nevergiveup
