Thursday Emergency Poat

Remember, saying that God created the universe is a sign that you are stupid, but believing that the universe is a giant hologram is SCIENCE!

MMM 390: Dwarka

Dwarka?  No, not the modern, coastal city.  This Dwarka.

There are, in fact two sunken Dwarkas.  One just off the coast, and one even farther out.

The ruins have been dated as far back as 10k or even 12k BC, which puts them safely above water until two ancient periods of sea rise as the last major glaciation ended (whether that end was gradual or sudden is hotly debated, with the establishment holding that the ice melted gently over a long time, and a growing number who believe that it came suddenly, and may have coincided with a cosmic impact of some sort).

This isn’t the clearest water, and marine ecology has a way of wearing down most everything people build, so it’s amazing we can see this stuff as well as we can given the time in that environment.dwarka1.jpg

Some columns miraculously still stand.

This is a nice montage set I couldn’t find apart.

Some beautiful steps.

Don’t be alarmed, it’s the name of the song for today.

Monday Motivational Mumbo-Jumbo

Soooo, all summer, I had “events” to train for, and dieting just wasn’t on my mind .   But now … there is not really anything on the horizon- no big challenges, etc. No excuses.

So  I stepped on the scale and this is what I saw:

 

4287465-a-scale-with-two-feet-of-the-person-standing-on-it-on-a-wooden-floor-the-scale-says--too-much

I’d like to drop about 15 pounds, so today is the first day of the rest of my … bla bla bla.

Onto the “motivational” pictures.

What do we have in the “binders” today… oh, lookie here …

I think I’ve illustrated the “fat” point pretty well. But WHAT diet to do? This one looks nice:

Ten pounds in a week? Sign me up. Week and a half, and I’d be DONE.  I can’t find any information on it, so if anyone knows the ancient Chinese secret to losing 10 pounds in a week, drop me a line.

Then there is  Eat All You Want Diet , which speaks to me on a spiritual level.  You are supposed  to read your body’s cues about what you need to eat, and how much, etc. Which … I’m pretty sure is how most of us ended up in the shape we’re in.

Or perhaps the Skinny Bitch Diet?

In essence this is an extreme vegan diet that describes meat as ‘dead, rotting, decomposing flesh’. The list of forbidden foods includes all animal products (meat, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy), refined flour, sugar, honey, beer, caffeine (coffee, tea, chocolate) and any food that contains chemical additives like artificial sweeteners. “Sugar is the devil and artificial sweeteners just as bad” they state.

Sounds like FUN!

I think the worst diet that I’ve actually known people to try is the “egg diet”.  I probably rolled my eyes the last time someone told me there were going on this diet.  LOSE 24 POUNDS in 14 DAYS!!!

Awesome, right?

How does it work? Well, this is basically what you eat:

Breakfast: 2 boiled eggs and 1 citric fruit.
-Lunch: 2 slices of bread and some fruit.
-Dinner: a bowl of salad and chicken.

 

…for two weeks.  Someone try it and let me know how it goes.

I’m going to just do the boring “count macros, eat less, work-out ” thing.   Mare is encouraged to call me a fat-ass until I reach my goal-ish range.   Macrostax is the program I’m using (it’s just an app) and I’ll up my running while I can, and continue with crossfit.

 

 

You’re all Tools

 

So, last Friday was Toolday: the day Tool fans from all around the world had waited 13 long years to arrive.  The. New. Album.  And some people just walked around like it was a normal day.   Oblivious to it’s greatness.

Behold the “unboxing”   of the limited edition. Yes, I have it. Unlike everyone else who didn’t pre-order.

MMM 375: Lockjaw

Weekend was absolutely awful for yard work.  It was either too hot to be outdoors, or a torrential downpour of rain.  Saturday afternoon I stepped on a roofing staple that pierced my heel.

Did you know Walgreen’s does tetanus/diptheria/pertussis shots?

Beach jeans.
