Thanks G im trying! Like others have mentioned, I just like good food! Breaking bad habits like not eating sweets and simple carbs will help a lot I think.

Yeah, plan on using the gym WiFi to watch some shows while I am doing it. I am going to try using the sitting bike while I am in a sling and once it's off I am going to try the regular bike. I will have to suck it up if I plan to lose the fat.

I'm doing long term fasting. Once a quarter, a week, then two, then three. Want to make 21 days with water only.

Curious...why? 21 days is a bit extreme

I think it is healthy. I think humans often endured long fasting periods during evolution and some remote civilizations today still live the old ways where food is eaten when it is available (I do not recall which island tribe was cited), often days between meals.

I watched a lot of youtube videos on it. There is both short term or intermittent and long term fasting techniques. It is a way to cut more body fat that otherwise you would not be able to.

If you need to lose weight, it works the fastest possible.

After 3 days, I start to feel great, almost euphoric, and energy starts to increase with mental cognition, reflexes, and etc.

If you go long, your body will start to eat tumors and scar tissue and your system will become more purged of toxins. Yes, your scars can disappear.

Of course you need to eat very healthy around all that.

^ I lost most of my weight recently from what I will call "stress fasting." I'm not sure its healthy but it sure as shit works to lose weight. Don't know how realistic it is to do on a regular basis but I also think that as long as you don't end up anorexic it cant really hurt. Very few people can willfully starve themselves to death in our culture.

Huh, good luck! I enjoy food FAR too much to give it up for more than a day . I do try to do intermitted fasting. Or whichever is the one where you dont eat anything until you work out. So i try to just have my coffee then workout THEN eat. Im not a breakfast eater anyways so it works.

Just did shoulders and arms -55mins and then interchanging
20 crunches x4
25 squats x4

Tell me more about santa cruz sport and spine please. I have posture issues I would like to correct. I have made a little progress from watching you tube vids by physical therapists but it probably going to take more than that. Yoga will change your life. I did it in college and should do it again.

I did a few 1 on 1 lessons before I attended a class. Definitely the way to do it. There are also many types of Yoga. Vinyasa is very energetic and you go from one pose to another very fast. It's a good work out but it wasn't good for my back. I eventually found a teacher that teaches a more pose oriented class. You hold poses for longer periods of time. This allows you to concentrate on perfecting the pose and it involves more stretching. I find this is much more beneficial for my back. Talk to the studio and find the class that will work best for you. I went to 3-4 studios before I found the class/teacher that worked best for me.

I've never had any desire to exercise. Running is one of the least appealing things I can think of. I'm on my feet all day everyday at work, and the last thing I want to do at the end of it is run around and lift heavy things.

But everybody has their thing that works for them.

Well when my normal chiropractor was out of town for the holidays I hurt my back. I ended up finding Santa Cruz Sport and Spine online. I liked what their website had to say. I have only been going for about 2 months but making awesome progress.

http://www.santacruzspineandsport.com/ (not to be confused with santa cruz sport and spine chiropractic (scspineandsport.com)

Right now I am going for Chiro once a month and they have been giving me stretches and core exercises to do. I am sure they can help you out. unfortunaly for me they don't take my insurance provided so it is a little pricey imo. I think like $100 for first visit and $75 for additional.

Look into it, I am going to ask about the yoga there on my next visit as I know they offer 1 on 1
