April 11th, 2016 Pause Daily

April 11th, 2016 Pause Daily

There's so many things I want to write about tonight--but the return flights and the hour and forty-five minute drive home has left me completely spent. I'll recount the strategies that worked well in maintaining far away from home, tomorrow night. In the meantime--a good rest is in order!

I'm very happy to report: The entire experience was even better than I expected--and throughout it all, I maintained the integrity of my plan. I stayed with my generous maintenance calorie budget, I remained abstinent from refined sugar and I exceeded my water goal for the day. My workout, aside from the small morning routine, was navigating the airports!

Remember the story from yesterday's edition, about my 51st Street conversation with Jay Leno? It turns out, the people Jay was visiting with prior to his conversation with me was Hope and her husband Jeremy! Hope actually got the picture!

Special thanks to Hope's husband, Jeremy Church, for snapping all of these shots. Joy also took several--and I'll have those very soon!

The video segment on TODAY:

I was absolutely overwhelmed with gratitude for being inducted into The Joy Fit Club! I can't thank Joy Bauer and the Today Show enough. So much has changed in the last two years!! I must pause daily to give thanks for every single blessing!

Today's Live-Tweet Stream:

Thank you for reading and your continued support,


  1. Sean, I was so disappointed for you on the NBC Today Show because they seemed to rush through your story so quickly, especially after the rubbish they had spent time on in the preceding hour. Good to hear that you enjoyed the trip and appearing on the show, and hopefully the exposure will draw more people to your awesome blog.

  2. I learned things about your story from the show yesterday that I never knew. So glad it went great for you in NY, Robin W.

  3. I tuned in and watched you Sean... You did a great job explaining your success plan in just a few seconds and you looked GREAT while doing it.
