So my time in Okinawa has come to an end, I fly back to Tokyo now and then change planes and make my way down to Matsuyama! I am doing a motivational seminar at the University there tomorrow... It's a lot of flying around, but I gotta where the jobs call me!

This is what happens when you do too many pull ups... Thank you "Fran" last workout in Okinawa... This time!

There you have it! I got my name on the Challenge wall! Did 131 double unders and beat the record of 112!

After the storm came the calm, but all I am trying to say is... I like this calm! Waking up on my last day here is sad and also greatly satisfying. I feel much better prepared to go back to Tokyo and continue working out. What a nice day to greet me...

Like I said, things are pretty much back to normal! After my workout I am now going to do what I do best on Sundays, kick it back with a couple of beers...

It must have passed us while I cell asleep during all the madness!!! It is really quiet now, and the lights are still not back on... I am going back to bed!

I am in the middle of a Typhoon! If I thought the Quakes were scary... This wind is tearing up the city, I barely made it back to my hotel from the concert. And every minute since the winds are getting stronger. My windows are bending in and out, lights are out, can't recharge my phone! Things are falling down all the time, and it shows no signs of letting us go... It's going to be a long sleepless night I reckon! I have never experienced winds like this, I could barely walk to the hotel door from the car, but this as I am typing is just escalating to something totally scary! This hotel is located at the top of the biggest hill in Naha too...will update later!

Typhoon is coming in hard... But my friend Konishiki is about to go on stage so I am going to stay for a while...

So I have almost been in this hotel fir a week now and just realized that they have free washing machines... Why was I doing all my laundry by hand up until now!'?

The Typhoon is approaching... And it's real cold here on Okinawa today...kinda sad to be here on a day like this, I hope it clears up soon

Forging Elite Fitness this is CrossFit Asia, and this is where I am on training camp for almost ten days!

This is my breakfast... Have not weighed myself since last week but I am feeling pretty good about myself, training is going good and I am eating according to plan.

Just finished a "Himeka" in 8.41sec. Have no idea if that is fast or not but it had me on the ground begging for air... Good workout! This is what my lunch looks like today. Kimuchi, Celery,6slices of ham,Natto, lemon water and some peanut butter!

So this Typhoon is approaching and it was raining hard all day yesterday, but getting up today it looks like it is going to be a fine day. Cant wait to get to the gym and get stronger, fitter and better at lofting correctly.

These machine are sick! The guy behind me just finished the fastest lap. 1.41min. on 5.8km track here at Suzuka circuit

Stay tuned to see what I eat on my binge day, although this looked good I couldn't finish it all, I did have a nice cold beer with it!

Today is my binge day, I can eat whatever I want and intend to, but breakfast should be balanced to something like this. 3eggs omelet, Fermented beans, a couple bacon strips, Kimuchi and pickles with grapefruit juice and Coffee!

Looks so much better at night! Had a good day with kids...the new show in Disney Sea is awesome, truly worth checking out!

I don't recommend the Disney Sea park during Golden Week... This place is so crowded it feels like Shinjuku station during rush hour...
