F2FHQ 078 - Survival Mode

Jake Challand, our fearless leader, returns to Fat2Fit HQ this week to update us on all things Challand.  He and wife Jenny are about to be blessed with baby #4!  Congratulations guys!  Join us as we get a health and fitness update from Jake and we hear his plans for running the household for a while.   (We are all praying for you, Jenny!!)

Welcome to the Fat2FitHQ podcast. We are your hosts, Jake Challand and Carol Salva, of the Firearms Radio Network.  In this podcast we are chronicling our journeys from Fat to Fit.  We talk about pursuing a healthier lifestyle not only in diet, but in all areas of life.

TOPIC:  Update on Jake and the Challand home.

Tip of the Week:  You can find all 78 episodes of the Fat2Fit HQ podcast on www.fat2fithq.com.  If you click into any episode blogpost, you can stream the show there on the website or you look for a link just below the audio link that reads "Download."  If you right click on that link, you can save the mp3 and, depending on your device, you should be able to pull that into iTunes.  Great way to enjoy vintage Fat2Fit HQ!

Ted Talk “Keep your goals to yourself.”

From the Community:

From James on Sparkpeople:  I only gamed 5 pounds over the holidays and I have lost it already thanks to going to midnights and periodic fasting while on midnights helps me maintain or lose weight as well as eating habits when switching back shifts. Love the recent guests and shows please keep up the good work and you mentioned shooting cross fit classes or competitions? Could you do a show on this? (JJ Razca)

I also have a guest request! His name is Antonio Centeno, Founder, A Tailored Suit & Real Men Real Style! I found him by researching conceal carry fashion. He is a retired USMC and is very good at customer care. I emailed him with a comment and he replied within a day. Lots of information on fashion tips and conceal carry ideas as a side.

Again keep up the good work and tell Zack I miss him because he was real for us guys in the work force. I know he didn't work a three shift rotation but still very relatable for us guys.


Thanks for taking time to write up James!  We are inspired by your dedication and your progress.  I'll pass the positive feedback on to Zack.  Also thanks for being part of the Spark Team.  You'll have to keep us up to date on how the Intermittent Fasting is going and anything else you're trying.  See ya in the Spark world!  - Carol
