Silverio Styling A Bonsai Tree

I know this weekend I have been out from the usual week fitness post but I have been doing something I was not doing from such a long time…. enjoy some time off with my wife and dusting off one of my oldest passion…. styling a Bonsai Tree.

Buying a Bonsai Tree already styled and in a good shape can be expensive and I believe many of you know what I am talking about but honestly where is the fun I do like to make things myself and so Friday I went to The Home Depot nursery section to see if I could find a tree to style in Bonsai.

The search went one for almost an hour and I came back home with this Dwarf Alberta Spruce…

The first thing I did is study the tree and see the potentiality than I start to clean the tree to keep looking what I could have achieved…. here is after the initial cleaning…

At this stage, I had a more clear vision of what I would have done and accomplish and so my final piece of art ….

I have shaped and repotted the tree this is the front, of course, this is just the beginning and more works need to be done but for this year that’s all see you to the next spring before I will touch it again for now just water and fertilize to set a strong base for 2019.

Today, as a motivational Monday back to my workout routine and working on my knee rehabs.

I Am Carb Cycling

If you guys have been following me for a while now, you all know that I was in a bulk regime for the last 3 months and that I planned to switch on a cutting face after this period.

There are different ways out there to lose weight and all of them promise miracles, however, the only way to succeed is always to do what is best for you in fact if you are in a losing weight journey it doesn’t really matter which kind of diet or meal plan you are following as long as you are in a caloric deficit you will lose weight, the take point here is, do what is best for you every one of us is different… You need to try!

My previous cut was more kind of getting the same amount of deficit calory each and every day but this time around I have decided to carb cycling… have you guys ever heard of this before? If not… fasten your seat belt and let’s talk about it.

Carb cycling means you eat a higher amount of carbs one particular day and the other days will be with lower amount of carbs this will be planned and throughout your weeks. Now, there are different ways to do this, I have read of people eating high carb every time they have a workout day and having a low carb day during the rest day.

When you exercise, your body dips into your carb stores for energy, so naturally, your high carb days would align with training days, when your body can best utilize that fuel. That can be a great thing, because an extra push during your workout means you can go harder for longer, burning more calories overall.

Now my approach is slightly different because I am trying to teach my body to use my fat storage during my training day so I have low carb day during those days and high carb day two times a week at my maintenance calory in this way I will replenish my energy.

What is your thought on Carb Cycling? Have you have ever done this before and if yes what was the results? I am hoping to have great results in the months to come so stay tuned.
