Costa Rica Wrap Up

Got back home around 3:30am from an awesome week in Costa Rica with my ‘girlfriend’.

We did a lot of fun stuff that’s in some pics below, but there were 2 highlights of the trip…

The runner-up was all the surfing I got to do… Didn’t get any awesome first person vids, because it’s tough to paddle to catch a wave while holding a camera, but Helen did grab one of me from a distance… nothing spectacular but tons of fun:

In my emails I mentioned I had some big news and that it had nothing to do with MMA or training.

Well this was the #1 highlight of the trip for me…

After 3 and a half years, I’ve finally asked my girlfriend Helen to marry me, and luckily, she didn’t make me look like an idiot and said yes!

Feels great, and I’m looking forward to more great times with her…

I know a bunch of you smarty pants already guessed what it was going to be.

Anyway, I’m dead tired from all the travel and getting in so late, so I’ll be posting the workout vids I shot for you in a day or two, stay tuned for those.

But in the mean time – check out some pics from my travels in and around Tamarindo, Costa Rica…

Pura vida!

I had no idea that that was going to be your big news because I am not a smarty-pants (more like a dummy-pants) but regardless, congratulations!

It’s funny you bring this up, 13 days ago I proposed to my girlfriend of 4 years! Did your fiance say you made her wait too long?

I wish you both an eternity of happiness!

Crazy! No, she didn’t say I made her wait too long…

It was actually a big surprise to her, which was great.

Best to you and yours too bro!

NUTRITION!!

Focus on your eating, the energy you would’ve spent working out, spend on learning recipes, grocery shopping, and planning.

And move your body!

You can do lots of stuff with just your legs and core…
