Daily Update: Thursday, 23 May 2013 2013-05-23 Ate far better today, despite being famished through lunch time. I nice huge salad for dinner and some homemade yogurt and mango helped squelch that by evening. Skipped working out so have double up next couple of days. (More ...)
Daily Update: Wednesday, 22 May 2013 2013-05-22 Ate crap. Ran like crap. End of day feel like crap. The last part is a bit melodramatic, but I’m not happy that I crapped out during my run.

Power yoga kicked my ass, that or a combination of that plus allergy medicines, allergies and overly light breakfast.  Comfort food was in order for lunch, but still didn’t make me feel better.  A 3+ hour nap in the afternoon after taking rest of day off of work did however.  Hearty steak and salad dinner with some yogurt and mango dessert (plus some pita chips and brownie bark) made for a not terrible but not great SAD diet day

Methodology: 1, 2, 3 or more months 2013-05-21

How long should I be trying each diet out?  I’m taking great care to consider the proper phasing and timing of the entire experiment.  I’m trying to make sure that I’m not setting myself up for failure by doing things overly aggressively.  I’m also trying to make sure that I don’t bias any results for a given diet.  It would be a pity if I switched off a diet just in time for the effects to be felt.  At the same time I don’t want to make the period so long that it takes years for this process to unfold.

Daily Updates 2013-05-21

As I think about how an adaptation to a new diet evolves, I think that commentary of the results day to day needs to go along with a more general discussion of how things are going in the diet.  There is the concept of a journal entry to discuss this general component, but a look at the day-to-day specifics of what is going on really deserves its own section.  The journal will be more colorful language and describing the failures and successes at that given point in time.  An accounting of what I ate or did in a given day however will go into a daily updates section.  Ideally this would take my already digital log of consumed food, activities and perhaps moods and show it in a brief set of words and graphics.

Today was supposed to be an easy run day on my training routine, and sure enough it was a nice 2.5 miles not evening hitting zone three. Diet could have been better, especially with the indulgences in brownies after dinner, but overall not bad, with health bars and carrots as snacks and breakfast, sushi for lunch and a nice big lean filet with huge salad for dinner.

Amazing and Depressing Hot Dogs 2013-05-21 Perusing the various sites I ran across this video on the manufacturing process for hot dogs. It’s incredible how they start with such crap ingredients, add yet even more crap ingredients, cover it with more artificial crap ingredients and then package it up.

Welcome 2013-05-20 I had originally intended to wait to open this blog up to the world. I wanted to have more of a foundation in my plan, however I’m too excited to wait at this point. (More ...)
