      Talk about food for thought.

      Given this i have decided to consciously and voluntarily create God in my own image - skip this unconscious BS

      • So i am totally back into uncharted territory

        i have stopped shivering during CT, i hope that means i have adapted and am building BAT. but how to know.
        I am red and blotchy all over and my post 32F Bloat seems to be starting to reduce. I assume i have a serious systemic apoptosis going on and my work now is to assist it to pass as fast as possible, however if Zeltiq is accurate it will be October before i really know. My year of Hormone Replacement is coming to a close and i still have not managed to scrape up enough cash to do a second year, whoa is me. I jut hope that the heavy metals detox is enough to correct my hormone issues on its own, but i sort of doubt it. I cant wait till winter so that I can work on exercising in the cold. i always do better in colder temperatures.

        so where am I?

        Ketogenic - Started in August 2011 full adaptation by September 2011 interesting that minor amounts of exogenous glucose will set my hear to racing until it is all gone.

        Cold Adaption - started cold baths in Feb 2012. water temps started in the 48-50f range and i shivered for months. in fact initially it took me hours to get warm again, now i cannot get cold. :-) odd how that happens. if i had thought ot chart the data it would look something like this.

        date, water temp, Final skin temp initial core temp, final core temp, time to recover initial temp
        feb 1, 48, 55, 97.4, 95.4, 8 hours
        feb 15, 50, 57, 97.4, 95.4, 6 hours
        feb 30, 55, 55, 97.6, 96.4, 6 hours
        mar 15, 58, 60, 97.6 96,8, 2 hours
        mar 30, 58, 70, 97.8, 96.4, 3 hours
        apr 15, 55, 70, 97.6, 95.4, 2 hours
        apr 30, 60, 72, 97.6, 97.0 1 hour
        may 15, 40, 52, 97.6, 95.4, 2 hours
        may 30 32, 48, 97.6, 94.2, 3 hours

        what i noted was that initially it took a long time to warm up with a moderate amount of cold but as time went on it took more cold to get my skin temps down. after the first 3 weeks most of the estrogen flush had passed and my labs show that vitamin D has held steady. I am off thyroid support and adrenal support except for stress events. my muscle strength still varies as estrogen floods the system from time to time, however on the whole i am stronger and have more stamina.

        Overall CT was a good addition to my life. even if the results were not what i expected.

        Circadian Rhythm - i have stopped using an alarm clock and hav removed every electronic item out of my bedroom. I go to bed when it gets dark and use F.lux along with a red grow light for when the sunsets. i need to obtain 2 more for the living room. I can even sleep in the red light but i dont like to do so.

        Sleep - getting close to a full night sleep without interruptions. the grounding mat i sleep on seems to have removed all the excess energy stored in the body ( ok i suppose since grounding actually sends negative ions toward earth while pulling positive ions up into the grounded item i have actually charged my body not drained it ). it was an interesting sensation for the first week, and it messed up my sleep. I THINK that the body clock is adjusting to having a properly energized system and things are waking up confused, but what do i know.


        Supplements - I have actually fallen behind on this due to CT. it is difficult to know what i needed esp along with the Heavy metal removal. however this week i intend to start back on mineral and some hormones to replace what is being lost.

        weight is up and so are inches but CT caused that so i just have to wait it out.

          I think it is time to return to blabing online about my self. LOL

          i have let work do what a Goins lets work do, ie drive me ) for about 6 weeks. I forgot the simple joy in being fraking awesome at what you do. I do find pleasure in it, even if it isnt what i would like to excel at, i am happy to have something i am good at.

          Got a job offer in Nashville yesterday, the economy must ave decided to stop moping in this area. I may take a look at it, one neer knows, but they do love me here, and i am expecting to be converted from contract to full time, not a bad thing assuming the pay is good.

          I am finishing my 7th round of HCG. 393 to 357 since June 14 2012. I have been bouncing around 355-358 for a couple of days, i may be done.. at any rate when the bottle is empty the bottle is empty. I will be purchasing more for future use, but this round is done.

          I am noting more and more that i have a serious venous system in my fat, that doesnt seem right to me. i am noting not just the veins in my arms and hands and legs and feet but also in my belly fat and that is just weird... makes me wonder if that is not actual adipose tissue but atrophied muscle.

          I can consistently do 5 pushups and they other day i got 10 without a break, this is pretty awesome. what is most interesting to me is not that i can do them but that my geometry is so different. Much like my ability to do squats things move differently around the joints. Much differently than I ever remember.

          it has gotten hot here, too hot for my icemaker to keep up, I need to figure out how to get cooler water into the unit and the water is 70 coming out of the tap as it is. I have thought about getting a large water filter and housing it in a refrigeration unit and letting the water flow thru that. sigh, all in the quest for a cold bath LOL.

          Summer is certainly upsetting my circadian rhythms, the sun is out too long. I need sleep people.

          well that is pretty much all i have.

          • Closed out the 7th round of HCG last week at 353 lbs. several days later i was down to 349. that was a great thing for me.

            I ate something and jumped back up to 352 which was not going to be allowed. This morning i broke a 36 hour fast at a weight of 348.6

            I suspect the culprit is a peach. yes just one.

            I dont see dairy doing this to me

            fat doesnt do this to me

            so it could be the single fig i had,
            or it could be the single date I had
            but i suspect the peach... i have had figs during protocol
            i had not had the date

            so we are back to basics

            todays breakfast.

            4 oz burger (curry spiced)
            2 jumbo eggs cooked in homemade butter

            after 36 hours it feels like lead on my stomach.

              • Under 350! WoooHoooo!

                I know, everybody keeps saying it's just stupid numbers on the scale...yada, yada. But, you know what, screw that. It mattered to me when I passed milestones like 200 and 150 and getting BMI from "obese" to "overweight" to "normal". It's important to celebrate these victories.

                      Didn't you say something on the griping thread about salad dressing made with MCT oil? Some people don't react well to that stuff. It might not be the lettuce's fault.

                            Today is my last full day in my office in building 12. The powers that be have decided that building 12 needs to be sold off to a rival government entity so that bills can be paid. sigh. this building has been good to me and the office had a door and a window.

                            Good news i get a door and window. bad news it is in the CIO's office sweet, meaning i probably need to be on better behaivor, no more coming in when i feel like it etc.
                            More bad news, 1/3 of building 8, 9, and 10's A/C unit is right outside said window. God i will miss the peace and quiet.
                            Oh and it gets worse. the former occupant was a slob. there is no way i will do pushups on that floor. I suppose i will be getting an area rug for that office.

                            I intended to paint it but my boss begged me not to. i suppose there may be some politics going on that i cannot understand... typical.

                            I have gone from almost homeless to being sought after like some rock star in the space of 12 months. I am comfortable here and they have work for years assuming that we can figure out how to pay for both the work and the personnel. Old comrades are calling as well, for years i wanted the directors slot at my previous company and now they are offering it to me, of course i cannot see that they have work for the next decade so why bother. And since i do not believe in coincidence the fact that not 30 minutes after sending an email to a mentor of mine about the opportunity an ex-coworker called me to shoot the shit and tell me that his company is doing well and oh by the way about 12 good men and women from there now work with him on a current implementation and if i am ever interested give a shout out, says walk do not run from the other opportunity.

                            It never rains but it pours. Sigh. This is just like the minute you get a SO you become so much more attractive to single people. WTF LOL... pardon me, my phone just chimed... OMG another job offer LOL

                            I'm to sexy for my......

                            I am tearing down my office physically and preparing to sever emotional and psychic ties as well. i want to be ok with this move, so i shall simply tell my resistance to change to check the history of my life and see that each change would have been far easier if it just shut the fuck up. and that it never really had any power over the outcome anyway. Yes i love the illusion of control and I also know that the only thing i can control is my attention and fortunately it is the only thing i need to control. so there.

                            Today i was up 2 pounds. however i didnt sleep last night and this makes two nights running so itis to be expected however just in case i am IF today i can feel my stomach beginning to protest, however it should know better, I made it very clear my limit. One pound over 344.6 is all i will allow without fasting. One of us ( the body or the will ) will win, my fear is that 344 may be a resting place and I will need to modify my expectations. It may mean that I need another round of HCG I hope not, however with 310 a reasonable goal from 345, who could resist.

                            One day i swear i will be able to live without the scale or the thought of monitoring my intake... but it is not this day.

                            oh wait, er erm, sorry about that.


                            well back to packing.
