Mutant Diet Phase 8 Day 41

From the #1 New Avengers issue. Today is civic voting day in Vancouver and other parts of BC. Mutant Diet Phase 8 Day 41 I almost didn’t complete this entry or yesterday’s diet sheet. I didn’t tally it up because the count was fucked up and would have been inaccurate. But I went to the gym yesterday and upgraded my kettlebell burpees to red (36 kg / 79 lbs). This means is did a burpee and then picked up the kettlebells to standing and put them back down 7 times for three reps. Suck that skinny bastards in the...

Mutant Diet Phase 8 Day 40

Superheroes have to eat too you know. I’d like to catch a west coast sunset in Victoria today. Mutant Diet Phase 8 Day 40 When I saw how difficult it was for others in my family just to chart their food, it made me realize that what I’m doing documentation-wise is kind of abnormal in a good way. Mind you, I don’t think I’m eating better. Yesterday was a mess, but fatigue and time demands are brutal. This morning was another carb heavy breakfast, but I did dump excess hash brown potatoes. It’s tough not eating everything you paid...

Mutant Diet Phase 8 Day 38

I thought this New Avengers image looked cool. I need to catch a sunset from Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver to relieve stress. Mutant Diet Phase 8 Day 38 The upshot of reviewing all my recent measurements is that since Sept 11, when I started Phase 8, I have lost an inch in the waist and the chest but only .2 pounds. Let’s be frank, I handled it well, but all the voices from childhood that talk about how I must have done something wrong to have failed to lose weight worked at me until my behaviour went sour...

Mutant Diet Phase 8 Day 37

More New Avengers. I bet it’s quieter in Cottage Country right now. Mutant Diet Phase 8 Day 37 I weigh in and measure today. I’m not sure what results I’m going to publish as I doubt it will be notable. What I’m trying to do is connect how I feel about my workouts and body and connect them – without judgement – to the numbers. Considering I’m trying to bulk up in muscle, it will be interesting to see how illogical the numbers will be. I am still trying to clear the passages from the cold and that’s getting...
