  1. If you're already very low carb, and fasting, how do plan to do lower fat? 7 days a week workouts, with all of the things you do...have you considered a refeed instead of just cutting food? It might be worthwhile to explore other dietary options instead of just cutting nutrients. Your body does need food every once in a while!
  2. Me too! But I promised myself I wasn't smoking another cigar for at least a week. I think I need to unpack the rest of the living room before another cigar night happens.
  3. Wait wait wait. My thread of awesomeness didn't demand you rewrite your challenge?!
  4. Lalalalalala can't hear you. .... .... .... I love that article. Amazing. "The goal is not to achieve results at first, the goal is to become the type of person who can achieve those things."
  5. "No-one's has ever done anything like this..." "That's why it's going to work." Sometimes it's just time to move everything out of the way and focus on what you can do to make yourself successful. Like Neo. Do the unexpected! Tomorrow is my first batch cooking day, and I'm sorting of looking at it sideways wondering what's going to happen. Translation: no watching 'Lost Girl' or 'Sherlock' till food is made. Batch cooking plan: Cook chorizo and spanish rice. Sautee veggies w/ butter, salt and pepper. Prep and throw chuck roast in the crock pot. Roast sweet potatoes ?
  6. Post "killed it at they gym" cigar. Worth it!
  7. I'm going to have to take that back. Even if I didn't meet any goals in the gym or in the kitchen, I did discover who I am. That's the most important takeaway from the last year. The most exciting thing: I like who I am!
  8. Ouch ouch ouch ouch ouch. Hope you feel better!
  9. Since the mini challenge is now over (at least for me), please come and join me at my new challenge! http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/41769-2014-challenge-1/
  10. Thanks! It was a lot of fun! It was really good to realize that I enjoyed the gym. Going on a saturday was pretty cool!
  11. It's all about the little things. I didn't consider them important. Then I realized 2013 was all about ignoring little things, and that didn't work. AT ALL. My new perspective: It's really about every moment, every bite taken, and every rep done. No excuses, but no crazy goals either.
  12. Hitting the gym: Saturday edition ​Yes, I got up at 7:45 on a perfectly good sleep in saturday morning and went to the gym. Color me surprised! Bench 65x3 70x3 75x3 [this snuck in somehow] 80x10 [pr!] Rows 3x8 with a 20# db Lat pulls -- was supposed to do t-bar rows, but an electrician was working on the heater / air conditioning unit right above it. 3x3 with 85#
  13. Eh. I thought they were good till coach started picking apart the movement. We all start somewhere.
  14. This seems appropriate to put here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8kZg_ALxEz0 Note: NSFW language, but well, it's your call. I saw this movie a couple years ago, but something on a blog brought it to my attention again, and it's something to consider. a ) always b ) be c ) closing How is that working with how I live my life? The reality is, I usually skate and hope that everything works out. I do something, then I get bored, and do another. I bring lunch to work, I commit to being different. Then I become lazy and quit. But life is more than that. It's not about the goal to bring lunch to work. Or even about what I'm doing at the gym. I'm starting to believe that life is about little things that are done to make big things possible. I used to think details weren't important, but details matter in the scope of life. I'd rather be known for showing up and trying, instead of never doing. Consistency. It's where it counts.
  15. Hey! Welcome from another seattle person! My honest take on it? I'd say it's way too low in calories. I'd suggest eating to satiety and not worrying about it. The low carb high fat is great, especially if you go into keto (which is a good thing for low carb). But you're probably going to be happier w/ 2200-3500. 1600 calories isn't that much. Hell, Jason Seib recommends more for that for a woman with medium levels of activity, and I'm assuming you're a guy based on the name. If you're actually following a low carb high fat plan, there's nothing wrong with fat. Butter, heavy whipping cream, ribeyes...or bacon! Have fun! And good luck! Also, here's something more on calories: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/the-context-of-calories/#axzz2pJpLQKtV ...and about eating on a primal plan (primarily low carb~ish): http://www.marksdailyapple.com/definitive-guide-to-the-primal-eating-plan/#axzz2pJpatWR9
  16. 10 minutes to meditate! Calm.com is the bomb! And I know what you mean. I think I casually web surf for 1-2 hours a day. I need to spend that time cooking or....something. Damn.
  17. Good thing is right. Though that's weird. Doesn't he actually *do* crossfit? Doesn't he need carbs for his activity levels? That's like adrenal fatigue waiting to happen... *sighs* *puts spousal unit in the arctic*
