      Just popping in to say hi I went primal in 2010 and lost 40 lbs, but in the last 18 months as I was finishing my PhD (genomic statistics - genomics of liver cancer) I didn't exercise at all and wasn't great with the diet either. Now that I'm done and caught up on sleep, I'm getting my life-style back in order. Good to see more geeks around

        I geeked on a fungus called Cryptococcus neoformans that causes meningitis. Interesting times, graduate school.

        That first real HIT workout sort of wasted me yesterday and the glass of wine with dinner didn't help either. 8.5 hrs of sleep has made a big difference. I'm psyched to see if half an hour a week of exercise works as well as the studies seem to show. Good experiment.

          Second HIT workout a couple of days ago.
          1. Leg extension on Nautilus, pretty much to failure; uncomfortable.
          2. Hamstring 90 degree isometric/static contraction 90 seconds
          3. MedX lower back machine
          4. Leg press
          5. Nautilus lat machine
          6. Nautilus chest press
          7. Nautilus ab machine (weird clamshell thing)
          8. Nautilus row (first time, did 90 degree static hold for 2 min)

          Dragged my rear home and ate...protein.
          Yesterday felt pretty good but crashed at about 3, did an 18 min power nap to finish day. Went home and the wife commented that I need to be careful of being too tired! Wonder what is normal recovery--does it get easier?

          Today is a lot better, 4 PM and I'm not dragging.

            Next HIT: similar to above.
            Noted looking at the chart that all my weights are going up steadily and I'm still around 3-4 minutes. Amazing. They are continuing to dial up the weights.
            Liver and Onions for dinner after the workout. Broccoli and spinach too. Macademia nuts for dessert, my new fave dessert.

            Last weekend in Seattle with Grandson, daughter, son in law. Delightful!

              Hey, hey, don't know if you're still looking for primal-friendly baked goods recipes. I used to love to bake too. I still do it from time to time but obviously do it a lot less now. When I do bake, I think of making primal versions of baked goods as an interesting challenge. A great place for recipes is PaleOMG – Paleo Recipes. There's some good stuff here too: Treats & Cheats - The Food Lovers Kitchen

              Yeah, it's always nice to see other geeks here. Once upon a time, I was a grad student in chemistry, but I dropped out with a master's. (Couldn't get my experiment to work, didn't really get along with my PI, and finally just couldn't deal with it anymore.) After that, I considered going to med school, but I would have had to do a post-bac because I haven't done all of the pre-med classes. Ended up going to law school instead. Biggest. Mistake. Ever. Should have done the post-bac thing and gone to med school. I hate being a lawyer, and I hate the law. It's a bunch of BS. Anyway, I kind of still want to go to med school, but I figure that it's too late now. I'm 31 and don't really want to spend another 10 years in med school and residency, while racking up more and more student loans. If I went to med school though, I'd like to eventually specialize in neurology, I think. I was into neuroscience before I got sucked into chemistry.
