Yeah, my lungs recently started plotting to kill me. It's a race now. I'm pretty sure I can kill them first.

Some yahoo yelled at me, saying 'GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH', and I thought, "I'm feeling generous today.  Why not BOTH?"

Any time I hear anyone extolling the virtues of nature and how wondrous biology is, I make a point of explaining to them that no it isn't. Biology is the most half arsed, shonky crock of shit platform the world has ever witnessed. It's over complicated, unreliable bullshit, with pretty much every single function achieved in the stupidest way imaginable.

My plan is to replace every dumb part of this piece of shit vehicle with something that actually works at earliest available opportunity. If nothing becomes available then cascade systemic failure is well underway. Another 10 years max and I'll be checking the fuck out. :argh!:

Yeah, electricity is way more elegant, as far as I'm concerned.  It does exactly what it's supposed to do.

It's not how I'm used to perceiving my body, since I've been a Skinny White Boy for the 25 years prior to this one.


Welcome to not being a kid anymore.   :lulz:

I woulda kept on with it for a while longer if my glands hadn't tried to kill me  :argh!:

You aren't a kid anymore the first time one of your organs, etc, betrays you.

Fittingly, this moment for me was ass polyps.

For me it was heart, brain, then pancreas.  They are all TRAITORS and I plan on having them removed as soon as is practical.

Brain, Back then brain again. When the surgery is finally invented to extract the tiny bastard behind my right eye, I want him taken out alive  so I can kill the fucker myself. Slowly. I owe that fucker some serious pain.

You'll be able to answer this with your engineering chops - how many moving parts do we need for a mechanical arm with 2 ball joints, a hinge and a grip at the end? If your answer is less than a couple of trillion then you get the gig :lulz:

Nature is basically all about the good enough. Evolution is based on the principle that if you didn't die, you're successful.

It's a pretty low bar but it's still better than anything humans have come up with.

My wife and I are starting week four of drastically reducing our sugar intake. Reasonable quantities of fresh fruit and occasional beetroot juice is where it's at now, although I did chug a couple of Gatorades over the weekend despite knowing their sugar content (I had to work outside in the 95 degree heat and walked over 17 miles while doing so, according to my pedometer, and both the heat exposure and activity levels were way beyond my current routine.)

We've started eating meals, almost exclusively, with ingredients we can pronounce and understand. This and the aforementioned sugar avoidance make a big difference! We're both already looking and "feeling" lighter and more energetic.

It's usually easier for me to adopt a better workout/activity regimen if I've corrected my diet first. Sugar withdrawal is a bitch, though, and hit me this time around the second week. It's not too different from having the flu in a lot of ways: chills, aches, nausea, headaches, etc.

And of course this week both offices we share a building with brought us donuts. Nice of them. So far I've been good about avoiding them and the other office goodies, but damned if their siren song isn't strong! I remember last time I did this, I started dreaming vividly about pastries. I haven't gotten to that point yet this time, but it wouldn't surprise me at all if one were to occur at this point.

Annnnnnnd now Sugar Sugar by The Archies is stuck in my head.

bumping this back up bc Reasons.

so i'm 180-ish at 5'8, which is fine and i like how i look at this weight - i have a mesomorphy build so i look healthy - but i'd like to drop down to about 170 to see how i feel, maybe? i'm more interested in dropping fat and gaining muscle/how i look than i am in what the scale actually says tbh, and fortunately the latter is stupid easy for me (hail to the buff ancestor, lmfao, that beautiful mutant). i've been back at the gym for a few weeks and focusing on core work bc my back as BETRAYED me, and there's already a very noticeable difference in my posture and pain levels.

things i ought to be doing
  • eat some fucking people food in the morning at work. IMF isn't working for me anymore; it just makes me tired and stupid.
  • eat more fiber, fermented foods, and protein, and really more food in general even though it's inconvenient.
  • meal prep breakfast and lunch, no matter how much i hate doing it
  • implement more cardio than just my warm up
  • go to bed at 8pm bc that's when my body demands i do it anyway
  • anything made with white wheat needs to be an almost-never food, especially as fire season approaches
  • stop being scared of free weights and just learn how to fucking use them properly
  • go back to low-ish carb eating habits

Remind me how processed flour and fire season relate?

I just have noticed that specifically white flour seems to trigger my asthma and fire season has done nothing but get worse over the last ten years. I don't know what the mechanism of that is, it's just a pattern I've noticed. 🤷
