I don't know what that title means. I'm writing this one, sans any plan whatsoever.
I know not what I'm going through. I'm telling myself I need one week to get it out of my system, and then I'm 100% all in. That is, I am doing whatever I want this week, party hardy, and then I'm back like I was last summer; meals spot on, timed, measured, planned workouts, the whole 10 yards. I don't know what "the whole 9 yards" means, as a first down is 10 yards.
And no I don't care.
I honestly think, my best guess, is that the extra 15-20 pounds I'm carrying has changed my hormones to the point that I'm less conscious than before. I've always talked about building the body for the sake of development of the mind. Well, it stands to reason that I let the body go a bit, and the mind has followed.
I'm just not as mentally sharp, emotionally stable, or positive, clear minded, etc, etc...etc! New goal? See how conscious I can become. If you were paying attention, that means I'm going to see how fit I can become. That's overall health, along with weigh reduction. Did you know the only PROVEN thing to increase lifespan is reducing calories? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calorie_restriction
The plan of attack?
Stupid clean eating, 6 days of cardio, with 6 days of weights. My workouts will be short, intense, with an high emphasis on form and building a tighter neuro network of brain cells. Think I'm nuts? Exercise grows brain cells, as shown in this study http://www.news.uiuc.edu/scitips/03/0127exercise.html
Oh, yeah, I nearly forgot. Day 7? Steven Covey would call it "Sharpen the Saw". A renewal; a day of rest. Whatever. I call it Zen Buddhism Meditation and Yoga. Again, this just improves the mind more, as shown here http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2005/11/051110215950.htm
I'll update everyone with the details of the diet which is going to be heavier in raw foods, especially fish and seaweed.
