Fell into OMAD

March 11th, 2015 at 03:27 am

I recently attempted a 3 days fast in order to reset my immune system. Sadly, my stomach protested a bit too loudly and I ended up giving in to it by the end of the day. This process repeated several more times, so I decided to shelve the fast for the moment. The one meal a day schedule I've inadvertently been on felt wonderful though, and saved me a ton of time. I think I'll continue this for now and see where it goes.

Lifestyle Changes

Converted my desk to a standing desk
I’ve been doing this for a while now and what a difference it has made. At the end of the day, I don’t feel mental and physical fatigue any longer. Plus, after dropping 5lbs, I indulged and ate a ton of ice cream during the summer; yet the weight didn’t come back. Still keep my chair for those lazy days.

Gone Veggie
Not quite 100% yet. I recently discovered that adding an extremely full bodied, hearty veggie both as well as incorporating food such as seaweed, soybean paste, coconut water, etc… to veggie dishes make them so delightfully satisfying. Swapping out sugar for coconut water significantly increased the deliciousness. Even when I only ate to 80% full, my body didn’t give me that nagging feeling as if it lacked some nutrients. If this keeps up, I might be able to say good bye to the carnivorous me one day.

Started WO wash
I was prepared for the worst when I started this, but weirdly, people reactions were better than when I used shampoo and conditioner daily. Who would have thought? Still in the transition period though.

Incorporated a 2 miles walk into my daily commute
I’m not a fan of exercising for the sake of exercising. Scenic hikes are ok. Functional fitness is ok. Setting aside time to sweat ……eh……no. So knowing myself, I often try to make my daily activities more physically demanding. Finally managed to convince my boss to shift my work hours so that I could take public transit, which comes with a 1 mile walk, without much increase to commute time. I'm excited.

Going to try oil pulling next.

Summer fun

Last games of the summer tourney



Best season out of the three years we played. Got free swag too Smile



Buying gift for a young boy who has everything and only wants time to play was surprisingly difficult.



The scenery was so nice I forgot I was there for some exercise.



Spectacular comeback in the bottom of the fifth and went on to win by a large margin.



I looked ridiculous wearing tennis shoe with a floaty dress but after walking briskly for 4 hours and still couldn't cover the entire place, I was glad I ditched the sandals. Seeing women tottering on 4 inches heels there made me shudder.



The circus came to town. I gave in and bought a ticket after seeing their performers standing around practicing, shirtless, for several days in a row while they set up their tents.
