    Default Qlip's last 15.

    About 15 years ago I was at 235 lbs, 10 years ago I was 190, 5 I was 180 and now I'm at 164. How's that for a long term trend, take that naysayers! I estimate I have maybe 15 lbs of deadweight on me and I'm committed to losing 10 of them, I'm guessing the last 5 will be exponentially harder.

    My plan? I don't really know, gotta figure that out soon. I just went Vegetarian, so I'm getting used to the diet and trying to avoid Vegetarian no-nos, like being a Breaditarian or a Cheesitarian.

    My other goals are to be able to do 100 pushups and 100 sit-ups. I just verified right now that I can do 30 and 40. It shouldn't be a problem reaching my goal if I just stick to a plan. For the Pushups I'm following the schedule here: onehundredpushups.com. I think I'm just going to do a mess of sit-ups and not worry about a schedule, it's always the pushups that kick my ass.

    I may post daily here to keep my awareness up.

    Good luck, Qlip!

    When it comes to changing your diet, focusing on just being a healthy vegetarian is a good start. Adjusting your diet a bit later makes a whole lot of sense to me.

    @Udog. Thanks!

    Nothing major to report today. I did my pushups test yesterday and a general light workout, so I'm resting today. I did walk over 2 miles today, but that's how I get to work, so that's a 5 day a week thing.

    Oh, another thing I did is made some steel cut oats in my rice cooker. That is fucking amazing. I'm oatmeal crazy, I always have been, I'm an oatmeal zealot. On top of doing steel cut, I tried out coconut butter in it as well as cranberries and walnuts. Then I rolled around on the floor in bliss.

    Checking in today because I said I would, not because I did anything I'm proud of. I'm SUPPOSED to do the pushup challenge, but instead I ended up meeting a new friend at a bar instead. Friends > working out. No regerets. I'll start tomorrow.

    Okay, did my little workout. Started on day one of my push-up challenge. I filled in some of my workout with some basic Hapkido punching and kicking, because punching and kicking are fun, and perhaps eventually practical.

    I ate too much today. But some of that was some delicious Thai food, so good... Green curry & tofu, potato and coconut samosas, spring rolls. With the delicious sauce of being paid for by my boss. Yum.

    Eh, I forgot how much I hate to obligatorily blog stuff. I've generally ate well. Did Nothing on Friday, did my workout yesterday. And walked 8 miles today.

    Did my workout yesterday. I feel like I've been eating too much, but it's all relatively healthy. I never know. I also feel like I've been eating too much over the past few months, but I have been slowly dropping weight. I wonder if my instincts are out of tune on this one.

    As long as you are dropping weight and feeling good, I wouldn't worry about it too much.

    Are you drinking water, or eating lots of veggies, fruits, or beans? Those can make you feel full even when the calorie count is reasonable...

    @Udog Yep, maybe not enough water, but most of my food intake is pretty healthy. When I go on a bad slant, it's usually a lot of non-sugary breakfast cereal. Or oatmeal, I'm an oatmeal fiend.

    I did my workout yesterday. I did have a giant slice of pizza for supper along with whiskey double and a beer. It was a rough day at work.

    I'm supposed to do my workout today, but it's just not going to happen. I bought a bike and I kind of went crazy going around town. I walked 2 miles to buy it. Then rode 3 miles and back to Berkeley for no particular reason. Then I did another 3 miles shopping. FREEDOM. I missed having a bike.
