    I stayed up late last night playing Overwatch... way to late. When the alarm went off at 5AM, I briefly considered going to the gym. Then I rolled back over and fell asleep. :oops:
    I could have gone after I woke up, but it was already mid-90s out there. I can't wait for it to cool off a bit, so I can go later in the day.

    Oh yeah, most definitely not a permanent thing (although I know some who have adopted it as such!). I was on it for 8 weeks, which resulted in about 12 pounds of body fat lost. Pretty substantial, especially when mixed with the gym. The only downside is, you really need to do a lot of research. But I think totally worth it!

    I went up again :/ Super busy week with big meals with friends, and no gym time. Back to salads and yogurt for me... Haven't been feeling too great too. Hopefully I'll be ok for a nighttime gym session tomorrow. I'm thinking of doing more heavy cardio than muscles for a bit.

    I have been very off and on recently; some days I eat really well, some I eat pretty crap, some days I work out and walk a lot, some I don't... really need to get some consistency... I can tell though how bleh I feel these days if I eat a really crappy meal (oor maybe it is just because some days I eat better I feel the different now?), soo I really need to work hard on eating better.

    Had a bit of a muscle cramp today for the first time in quite a long while. Not a way to finish out a session at the gym. :(

    I wonder how people that survive on things like quinoa and kale do it? Do they actually like the stuff, or just put up with it? >_>

    I like Kale... but it's no pizza... X3 I imagine if you just denied yourself unhealthy but yummy stuff, you would break a lot of your habits and get over needing certain kinds of foods. Penn Gillette lost 100 pounds because for 2 weeks he ate NOTHING but potatoes, then slowly added other healthy stuff in, and it eorked because during that 2 weeks he was able to get used to denying yourself and eating "healthy".

    I'm just the type that can get so sick of eating the same thing (even stuff I enjoy) over and over and over constantly. Then there's the whole "I need to move so I can utilize a kitchen" thing, too. Still, I hate cooking >_>

    I get sick of the same thing too, which is why certain diets are just not for me. I love cooking personally... but I usually like cooking unhealthy things. X3

    I can't do diets that limit what I can eat. It just doesn't work and I certainly don't force myself to eat stuff that regardless if it's healthy if I don't like it, I'm not eating it. I just track my food with a calorie goal. I find better success that way.

    Moderation and such is probably a better place to start, yeah.

    Well, I'm out of yogurt and cutting back on cereal for breakfast again, so I've decided to just make a glass of green tea in the morning. Well, mornings when I don't have to work. Enough to fill me up until I have a kind of brunch later on. If I work though, I do need to fill myself up a bit, since I'm really active. My job requires a lot of moving around and walking, so I easily hit 10k+ steps every shift. I also get issues too where my head hurts if I don't eat/drink enough. Crappy blood sugar and such.

    Well, I got my 20 min cardio in at the gym tonight, at least. So much stuff going on this summer, but at least I could get that in. My usual "it's better than nothing" motto (inspired by Mighty No. 9 :p) I had to get some (healthy!) groceries and stuff after, which is why I needed to cut it short tonight.

    I really need to get my cardio together. I quit smoking cigarettes over a year ago, and I never really increased my cardio to counteract the breathing issues cigarette smoking causes. Still really need to work on that!

    Congrats on quitting cigarettes! I know it's challenging to do so way to go on that!

    Thank you! As challenging as they say it is, it all revolves around will power. The first week after I quit was the only time I felt any cravings/negative impact, but honestly, it wasn't too difficult. I think more people could, it just takes being ready! And 3 years of smoking had me ready.

    Had a 50 min cardio session last night. Was too bloated/full of water and rice to bend over and do a bunch of muscles :p Couldn't go too fast either but oh well. Glad I got through 2 episodes of my show, as it's my motivation to keep going.

    What all did you do in your cardio session?
