Magical Machete + Greenclouds - They say cheese over 6 months old doesn't have any lactose in it. The bacteria eats it all.

EDIT: Plan for today: Eat breakfast (probably eggs), work for 8 hours straight (I'm a prep cook so I don't have time to take a break, and I'm standing, running around, all day long), then I eat dinner whenever I get home. Depending on how busy we are depends on if I'm getting food at work or not.

I know breakfast is an important meal, but whenever I get up and go downstairs, I just fall right back to sleep.. xD So I don't really eat anything. I'm not looking to lose weight anyway?

Woo day two!
No exercise today, it's a day off.

Breakfast granola and yogurt w/blueberries two cups coffee, 2 cups water
Lunch: Homemade fried rice: cabbage, carrots, and an over easy egg on top, glass of milk
snack: half square of dark chocolate 2 cups water
dinner: salad, green beans, fish, mashed potatoes 2cups water
desert: a truffle, more water, maybe some tea later

@Slapthefatcat I dunno about you but when I used to be a line cook, or now when I cook at home I focus on trying to work my arms as I cook. Rubbing down the cast iron skillets at the end of the night is a particular bicep burner when I hold them over the trash instead of letting them rest on the counter.

I'm a prep cook, which, at the restaurant I work at, is a lot different than a line cook. Basically, I do prep until opening, then I go onto dish and do dishes until close. I'm usually the last out of the kitchen.

I freaking love it. Honestly, I'd rather be doing taekwondo than anything else. Unfortunately I can only go to practice to observe until myankle is completely healed. Here's hoping the physical therapist gives me the okay soon.

Excersize?
bike to work (5 km)
bke home from work (5km)
bike to video store and back (2km)

One of the best "excersizes" you can do is to put your car in the garage and leave it there unless you absolutely need it to carry something, someone or get to someplace too ridiculously far to ever walk.

You'd be surprised how many people in the world survive just fine without cars...
and how much fitter they are as a result.

I've lost about 25 kilos since I lived in the US 6 years ago and haven't ever employed a single excersize routine or set workout. The only thing that's really changed is that I don't have access to a car and as a result, am a lot more active.

Geez, the number of exercises or the length of running is ridiculous to someone of one in the size and physique like me.

Give it time. You need to build up the endurance and intensity over time. One of the things a lot of people don't pick up on for a while, is the focus thats involved. Its more than just going through the motions and putting in some effort, it really makes a difference when you can just totally zone into it.

Don't look at it that way.

I only got to the point where I can do this many reps after a lot of conditioning courtesy of taekwondo. When I started four years ago, I could only do about 50 crunches before I had to call it quits, but after practicing with some pretty insane blackbelts, I find myself doing things that sound pretty nuts, and that's outside of practice, with nobody forcing me.

Get started at a level that's just barely uncomfortable and work your way up from there. Believe me, I've been in the same boat. ^_^

Exercise
Crunches (500: standard) (500: legs vertical)
Jacknife (150 reps)

Food
Breakfast: Egg and turkey pepperoni English muffin, strawberry-mango smoothie, coffee
Lunch: Sloppy Joe and spinach
Dinner: 1/2 turkey sandwich on marble, tomato soup

No snacks today. My visit with the physical therapist ate up a whole hour, and by the time I got home I was ready for dinner. I gotta say, homemade smoothies are the way to go. I used 3/4 cup of milk and 1/2 cup of carrot juice in the one I made today, and it was freaking delicious. No sugar necessary.

The 500 standard crunches were my wake up exercise today, and I finished the other 500 a few minutes ago. Those were much more brutal, especially on top of the jacknifes this afternoon.

Before I forget, does anyone else have a special workout playlist? I'll be dusting off my Mary Poppins soundtrack when the doctor gives me the okay to start running again, but for everything else, I like to loop Rainism. Makes me think of the crazy conditioning Rain had to do for Ninja Assassin, which pumps me up. Also makes me picture Rain in my head, prompting fangirl squealing. ^_^
