Health

It appears this COVID stuff is not “going away”.

I believe the best course of action is to strengthen the immune system for what we are facing today and future COVID variants/viruses.

For me, this means: Focus on quality sleep, burn stored fat, and live an active daily lifestyle.

I agree with this quote…
“To lose weight and keep it off, follow the 80% nutrition, 20% exercise rule. Creating a caloric deficit and speeding up your metabolism through exercise, can help you be successful on your weight loss journey.”

In short, fat is lost in the kitchen more than in the gym.

Some Metrics:
15 weeks remain in 2021.
If I burn an average of 4 lbs of fat per week, I’ll be at my goal of 220 lbs by the start of 2022.
If I burn 1 lb of fat a week, I’ll be healthier than I am today.

The Diet:

Rules of the Slow-Carb Diet

Rule #1: Avoid “White” Carbohydrates
Rule #2: Eat the Same Few Meals Over and Over Again
Rule #3: Don’t Drink Calories
Rule #4: Don’t Eat Fruit
Rule #5: Take One Day off per Week

The Activity Plan:

It uses an app similar to the Born Fitness App I had success with in the past.
Audible called here. The app I was planning to use is only iOS. I’m a happy Pixel user.
Going to use the content in the Boundless Book to get things started.

  • Tracking: Sleep, HRV, Overall Readiness

    I only wear and look at one health tracking wearable. I started wearing an Oura Ring back in early 2019. Sleep tracking was my primary driver in getting an Oura Ring. This wearable shows you how physical activity, certain meals, meal timing, alcohol consumption, sleep timing, and just about anything that might happen in the… Continue reading Tracking: Sleep, HRV, Overall Readiness

  • Calorie Targets – Where and How I Started

    Here go, I’ve been happy with my physical activity reboot. It’s now time to pick some daily calorie targets. I’m using Ben Greenfield’s book Boundless for the framework here. Determine my basal metabolic rate or BMR Using Harris-Benedict Calculator (Total Daily Energy Expenditure) BMR is your baseline for laying in bed all day RMR is… Continue reading Calorie Targets – Where and How I Started
