    How many hours do you sleep?
    Do you go to bed before midnight? (it is 3am here)

    There is no such thing as conserving energy. Spend it and you'll get more in return.

    Yes, well, it wasn't working that way for me. I had no energy. Maybe its the vegetarian, I'm not sure, but I was falling asleep in the middle of the day.

    Are you getting enough protein now? How many times do you eat a day? What time do you get sleepy?

    Did you have the energy issues before you switched your diet? (I don't remember you commenting on that.)

    Instead of it being just protein intake, my *first* concern is whether or not you are getting enough calories. Veggies are very filling, but very low calorie. So do you have any idea how many calories you are eating each day?

I don't worry too much about what it is I intake, but if I want more food I make sure it's the healthier things being increased (vegetables and such). Eating smaller amounts and slowing down your consumption a bit usually gets me through alright.
    Good tip - thanks! Taking a break in between your first, second, and fifth servings will also reduce the amount you eat.

    Thank you for the update. Also, you should make a tape called "Skank yourself to health"

    Nuts and seeds. I like to make a mix that has equal parts raw almonds, cashews, walnuts, and pecans. I add some pumpkin seeds to that (they don't taste great, but have good protein). After that, I mix it up some. Dried cranberries and raisins give it some sweetness and counter the dryness of the nuts. Dried bananas and a bit of dark chocolate give it a dessert quality while still keeping it at least fairly healthy.

    You can do better than peanuts, health wise.

    Sadly, Krav Maga class ended today with the last day of instruction. Thanksgiving, registration, and finals followed by Holiday break coming up, so the class ended today. It was a good day though, reviewing all the stance and choke techniques learned throughout it. Spring sessions will begin in January sometime. I'll be there.

    Aerobics class we had teams sports day, where we had to play 'Chinese soccer'. Our team lost, but I'm convinced we would have won if they hadn't cheated on an earlier point that was counted. Oh well. It was a fun class.

    Congrats on pursuing Krav Maga. Undoubtedly the most brutal of the martial arts!

    Why thank you I've been having a lot of fun with the class, and I wrote an evaluation for the instructor coming from an inexperienced person in the combatives field.

    Hi Udog,

    Just reporting in. Have done my workouts. Fell off the wagon for eating regular meals. Problem was not cooking ahead of time for lunches and less routine generally. Will fix this week.

    Just dropping in to say that I've finished Day 9 of the P90X. Polymetrics again. My technique was much better this time. I thought I was doing really well until the guy said, "Great job guys! We are half way through!" Then I fainted.

    Not really. But I wanted to.

    Medications have helped! I now wake up without feeling exhausted. Unfortunately I think I'll require an air purification device to get back to 100% but I'm doing workouts again.

    To get back into things, I've taken to bodyweight exercises. Burpees in particular. If you haven't tried doing these yet I'd recommend it. They are far more demanding than I expected. Today I attempted to do decending sets starting at 12 (so 12, then 11, then 10, then 9, etc.) but only got down to 8 before I was borderline puking from the exertion.
