    I'll have to check out that crossover someday. I'd buy it if I had the money for it right now. I'll check back with you/the website possibly in a few paychecks if I can afford it, heh.

    I really only read the Marvel Zombies crossover with Army of Darkness. What I saw of the other Marvel Zombies stuff didn't seem to focus so much on what makes zombies fiction good as it did on having super heroes eat each other. I do see the appeal in that, but not for more than an issue or two. Certainly not several different mini-series.

    But Ash Williams in the Marvel Zombies Universe? I'm all over that trout.

    I can't answer for anything else on this list really, but Spiderman: Reign is fantastic and someone should buy it right now.

    How is the Marvel Zombies stuff, by the way?

    Probably best you fainted. When the four horseman ride and the Apocalypse begins you'll be unconscious through the whole thing.

    It's all good Shion. The fact is you went and you worked out. Don't get too hung up on leaving early, whatever your reasons were. You went and you did something which is always better than nothing so that's an accomplishment in my book.

    It may sound a little cliche, but it's important to not worry too much about what you already did and focus on getting back on the horse the next time. So look forward to getting in there on Wednesday, and then reward yourself with some of that nice relaxing Yoga to cap off the exercise week.

    So I went to the gym today and did some weight lifting. My arms really hurt. I only stayed for half of it though for personal reasons. I'll try to do better next week. I have another gym day on Wednesday.

    I'm going to try to go three times a week. I don't have a lot of self discipline and motivation when it comes to this so I go to the group classes so that I get a decent workout and I don't just end up on the bike machine reading a book for an hour.

    I'll post some updates too

    Not really. My wife's been off work for a while so I haven't been going to the gym. There is a chinup bar in the laundry room I should make use of more often though. I have been doing a bit of biking here and there, but workouts have been hampered a bit by some nagging mobility issues in my legs causing me pain and discomfort. Been working them out with a bit of physiotherapy the last few weeks and am feeling much better.

    Damn it. Only my processor was in. The rest will be ready to be picked up tomorrow. Now my new i5 is just sitting there staring at me. Taunting me with its four cores...

    Rambling may be fine, but I'd like people to actually read and understand me.

    I'm trying to be a bit better about being concise and cutting straight to the point. Despite hitting several topics in this post I think I was better than usual at getting to the point.

    That is indeed awesome - good for you. I've lost 30 pounds so far this year and I don't technically need to lose anymore, but I'm still pushing.

    Rambling is fine, it's your own blog, silly!

    Nope, I do gain really easily though. I also have a tendency to ramble in these posts and not edit them so I would happily take the blame for any misunderstanding. Thanks for the support though. I had two main goals going into this: lose weight and control my depression, so progress on both fronts is great.

    But yeah, definitely don't need to gain weight right now seeing as I started this whole thing at or around 300lbs. Even if I carry that much weight better than most.

    Oh, you're trying to lose weight? For some reason I thought you were trying to gain! I guess I haven't been paying attention Congratulations on your loss, though!

    this is the rationale behind keto? no spike in insulin bc keto = burn fat easily

    Yep, almost 300lbs. And I might have been that or a bit more when I started this process, I'm not really sure. I have something of a weird body type though. When I do put on fat it tends to be distributed fairly evenly, though there is a higher concentration around the mid section. Given the fact that I'm also quite tall (6'2") but have a stockier build with a good deal of muscle mass (particularly in the legs and torso) I'm an almost 300 lb. man that most people would probably guess weighs 30 lbs. less at least. Being me is very strange sometimes.

    As to restrictive diets, something I've found about going keto is that not only has it been downright easy (again, I don't seem to crave carbs at all when I do it making limiting them child's play for the first time in my life), but I'm actually not eating that much food in the run of a day because I'm not super hungry and my blood sugar is under control. Restrictive diets may not work for everyone, but it seems to be working for me.

    And despite a large portion of my meals being meat, by sticking to cheaper cuts of beef and ground beef (higher fat ground beef also being dirt cheap) I seem to be spending no more than I used to. And since I don't have vegetables and fruit I don't even want to eat going bad in the fridge it's probably a more efficient use of my money.

    I may have to compare the cost a bit more accurately sometime though because now you've got me curious.

    restrictive diets tend to not mesh well with society. If you were doing strict IF then who cares (and you would welcome social gatherings). Keto..not so much. Meat is still rather expensive and won't be in large quantities (make friends with Filipino people - always eat BBQ pork)

    Did I read your first post right? You're close to 300 lbs? I never realized that :o If you keep it up, in about 6 months you should be down to 200s easily.

    Actually to go Keto I keep it around 20-30g of carbs a day tops. The vegetables I like aren't really high in the carb count so it's pretty easy to stay there most of the time. Went a bit off the rails this weekend though. I was visiting family for a family reunion and there were quite a few times where my options were either eat what was available because I haven't been home in eight hours and I'm in the middle of nowhere or don't eat. You can only go with the don't eat option for so long before you crack. Luckily, I was reminded that butter tastes awesome on it's own.

    But smurf it, back on track now. I actually have been doing an intermittent fast once a week, usually stop eating around 7-8pm and then don't eat again until sometime between 12-2pm the next day. I find it keeps me feeling pretty good actually though the tail end of the fast is usually when the hunger starts getting to me, though it's gotten easier since the first time. I also tend to stick to 3 meals a day, maybe adding a snack in there if I get hungry enough in the evening. I dislike the process of eating, and from experience I know I hate carrying lots of containers with me to eat a meal and a snack or two through the day so I just eat more all at once. It's not usually an issue since the reasonable amount of protein and big amount of fat I eat keeps me full for hours on end most of the time. If I do get hungry before my next meal it usually means I just didn't eat enough so I eat a bit more next time.

    I'm going to try and get another post in soon. I was hoping to do it sooner, but a combination of sleeping on a troutty futon and some pizza and the like on the weekend hit me harder than I thought they would and I didn't really start to feel normal until today, even though I'm really tired right now. I'll have to hit the sack early I think.
