The weight is back - especially after the holidays (Halloween-Thanksgiving-Christmas-New Years). I've been doing lots of reading on Seth Roberts' blog as well as other sites. My exercise options have been limited and I need to make minor changes that are sustainable for the long-haul, but that don't interfere with life in general.
So I'm firing this blog back up again ... to track; to post thoughts; to book-mark important things I've read and found.
The day after New Year's, I weighed in at 220 lbs. Through exercise and not eating cookies, I've backed off that weight a bit and am now at 215 lbs. I need to get back to about 175-180.
Today, I tested the feasibility of ingesting virgin coconut oil while plugging my nose and then rinsing with water. It worked out quite well.
Here's the plan:
After waking up, eat 3 fried (in butter) eggs - at around 5:30am
Next would be two tablespoons of virgin coconut oil - at around 8:00am
Next I'd drink water while an hour passed. Then I could drink my Crystal Light at 9:15am
Lunch would consist of an apple and protein - 12:00pm
Next would be another two tablespoons of virgin coconut oil - at around 3:00pm
After getting home from work, I'd exercise (long walks, spin on the bike and weights) - around 5:00pm
Dinner would be light and made mostly of protein - at around 6:30pm
The day would be capped off with a Diet Canada Dry - at around 8:30pm
Weigh-ins are crucial for me - so I will usually weigh-in every day after I wake-up.
