Witness the Fitness

As you might know, I have been busy working out a plan for shedding the excess weight that I’ve been carrying around with me for the last ten years or so.

Having listened to Joe Rogan speaking about self-discipline on his podcast recently, I have a better understanding of what I need to do to make some real improvements to my health and well-being.

So, here are some of the tips that I have picked up while researching my weight loss plan.

  • ONLY DRINK WATER.
  • GET UP EARLY (0600) – GO TO BED EARLY (2200) – AIM FOR 8-HOURS SLEEP.
  • FOLLOW A 16/8 I.F. PLAN. NO FOOD BETWEEN 1800 & 1000.
  • WALK FOR TWO HOURS EVERY DAY EXCEPT SUNDAY – TWO 1-HOUR SESSIONS SPLIT BETWEEN A.M. & P.M.
  • WORK TOWARDS 100 SIT-UPS AND 100 PUSH-UPS PER DAY (THIS CAN BE SPREAD OUT THROUGH THE DAY).
  • INCREASE MY INTAKE OF LOW-CARB FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
  • ONLY EAT THREE TIMES PER DAY, BREAKFAST, LUNCH AND DINNER.

It isn’t rocket science. Eat well, cut out the crap and move more. I’m still working out the format for how I’m going to record this journey. I could do a vlog and post that video here each day. I’m not going to use Youtube if at all possible. I have a small video camera that I can use. It produces video in the correct format and at a high enough quality. I’ll talk about my progress, and about how I’m feeling. It will be unfiltered, raw footage.

Look out for some test videos soon.

FCUK Social Media – Redux

The more I think about it, the more I want to take a month away from using social media, and from using my smartphone. If I am going to get Karta to spend one day-per-week without using his phone and social media accounts, I need to lead by example.

The only reason that I will pick up my smartphone will be to check my WhatsApp messages I can check my emails and Signal messages on my PC. I am also working to move most of my email over to Protonmail from Outlook, although this will take some time to complete.

The Punkt MP-02 will become my device of choice for making phone calls and for sending SMS messages. I have a decent compact digital camera for when I want to take photos.

Ultimately, I will stop using products from companies like Facebook, Google and Microsoft. I am now taking time to seek out software from companies that have strong privacy values and will not share any of my information with third parties of any kind. Although rare, they are becoming easier to find.

I am making a concerted effort to slow down. I don’t need to check my email every five minutes. I don’t need push notifications, and I do not need social media.

That is all.
