    Ah Christmas parties. Having a Christmas party today for work. I expect I will pretty much not eat anything, unless they actually have meat there. Same for the building holiday party today.

    Christmas party this Saturday with friends will be mostly meat and sugar-free stuff so that will be fine.

    2 day mini-board game con at my friend's place should have some food I can eat, even if it's just me bringing some Macadamian nuts or getting take-out.

    Family dinner at Christmas might be a challenge but will just mean skipping the courses that don't fit my dietary restrictions and eating more of the ones that do.

    chocolate is not naturally occurring.

    Meh, company party actually had more food (albeit the ribs were in way-too-sweet sauce, and the salad was also in some sweet (probably corn syrup) dressing) than I expected I could eat. Doh.

    Chocolate actually has some useful nutrients in it. The sugar they usually add to it, not so much.

    Who's crazy enough to eat 100% dark chocolate?

    So I had a physical the other day for my job to prove I'm fit to drive a company car.

    173lbs D:

    Normally I'm like 160

    Also I no longer have 20/20 vision. They rated me at 20/30

    And my blood pressure is a little high (but they said it was probably because I was drinking coffee moments before they took my blood pressure)

    Yeah...176 lbs was my lowest weight in my entire adult life, and I was at that for about a month or two before I gained back 15 lbs. Now 176 is a distant memory.

    My blood pressure and cholesterol are really very good for a fat person.

    116/74 bp when I gave blood last week.
    173 cholesterol, but I take that number with a grain of salt because it's not a true test. As I understand it you're supposed to fast for x hours before testing, and there's no way in hell I'm fasting before blood donation.
    I really gotta learn to get my heartrate down, though. My pulse was 72 :/

    I was very proud of my hemoglobin last check: 13.6! It usually hovers somewhere around 12.5
    Woo exercise!

    I've kinda fluctuated the past few weeks and gone from 218 (pre-america trip) to 222 (right now), I just need to quit eating crap.

    I just like stuffing my face when I have a crappy day.

    Man, I know what you mean. And I just love the taste of milkshakes so much.

    my lowest was around 145-150 a while back. Even @Saralynn was saying shit like "Damn boy, eat something".

    I'm at 180 now. If I can maintain this weight, or at least keep above 170, I should be ok.

    72 is not bad at all! Especially considering women do have higher heartrates in general. My lowest is usually around 78, no doctor has ever said it's a problem.

    Man, I need to get back to going to the gym.


    I haven't been in 2 weeks. I've been a lazy piece of shit and I can tell. My mid-section is all squishy.

    I haven't worked out in two weeks and I lost weight!

    my back hurts from sitting down all the time though, time to do some squats and situps and shit

  • StaleStale Registered User regular
    I don't like all this flesh.

    I feel weird. I don't know how you people go around with all this flesh on your frame.



    I miss being skeletal.

    We like being cuddly.

    Also, shoved a little less crap in my face hole this week. Drinking more water. I decided to clean up the apartment some since people are coming over to party tomorrow night.

    Edit: Did the BMI... wuh, I'm obese.

    I hate BMI - I feel the only metrics you can really use are how good you look and feel - forget weight and BMI. Notwithstanding medical metrics like blood pressure, etc...

    So I recently started using Fitocracy to track my progress and was wondering if there is a way to join the group here without starting a new account.

    Some say that the Blood Angels are tainted: that they harbour a dark secret. I know this to be true. I have seen the infamous Death Company: wild-eyed and foam-mouthed berserkers who tear their enemies limb from limb, crush skulls with a single blow, snap spines and rip out inner organs. I have seen the Sanguinary Priests: the passing of blood filled chalices from lip to lip, heard their wracking lamentations of Sanguinus's death. I have watched their rituals: mighty warriors daubing their armour in the blood of their foes, heard them crying for vengeance against the enemies of the Emperor.

    BMI can be malarky, I wouldn't take it too seriously or stress about it.

    Stopped tracking stuff via fitocracy because I'm lazy on THAT front but still working out. Down about 10 pounds, fitting into smaller clothes even though 10 ain't that much.

    Power was out at the gym last night for the overhead lights. It's kind of strange lifting in the dark.

  • DruhimDruhim Registered User, ClubPA regular
    I stopped using fitocracy simply because I find it pretty useless as a metric for progress. I get that some people are really motivated by the arbitrary leveling system, but to me it's pretty dumb and meaningless and potentially drives one to exercise not in a way that makes the most sense for them long term, but to instead focus on exercises that will earn them the most meaningless points.

    Hey

    Can someone here point me towards some good online resources for nutrition?

    Every time I google for what I suspect are some nutrition-related symptoms I've been having, I end up at some sketchy blog posts that are really just shills for diet books or at yahoo answers.

    Just took a short walk because it's unseasonably warm out.

    Got about a quarter mile done.

    Noticed that I tend involuntarily to roll my shoulders back and lean back and too one side when I walk.

    I dunno why that is but I think it's part of why I get such horrible back aches when I walk.

  • DruhimDruhim Registered User, ClubPA regular
    I've been feeling under the weather for about a week and hadn't been to the gym since last Friday because I was feeling so crap. Felt good today though and made it into the gym for 45 min of cardio this morning. :)

    belruelotterav-1.jpg
  • UrielUriel Registered User regular
    Turns out after doing some research my posture when I walk is all fucked up.

    I also neglect a few of the stretches I'm supposed to do.

    Well if it's warm enough again tomorrow I'll make some adjustments and see if I can manage a whole mile.

    so how did everyone do on xmas

    lets all recount how much horrible shit we stuffed in our bellies

    also my fiance got me a fitbit for xmas and it is hella swag

    tracks food like myfitness pal but also tracks my calorie burning much better and the interface is really slick

  • SquallSquall hap cloud Registered User regular
    also it apparently tracks my sleep?

    like it tracks how long it took me to fall asleep, how many times i woke up, how much time i actually spent sleeping

    i havent used that feature yet but it's kind of unsettling!

  • StaleStale Registered User regular
    my bodyfat is slowly climbing back up, I'm around 12-13% now. It feels weird.
