    Bat, sent you a mail.

    Btw, if we take pics you're going to have to blur out my face...

    • I'm on the bad eyesight train too, lol! Astigmatism in one eye, and keratoconus in the other. But I've already had surgery on the one with keratoconus, so i have a teeny little lens in my eye to hold up my cornea. And the other one's okay with lenses. Sucks that neither lenses or glasses work for you, though

      • Haha - no problem we can think of creative pics to take.

        Wow, Mango. Seems like lots of people have issues. Wonder if its another thing we can blame on PUFAs...
        Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

          • Haha, why not? Damn PUFAs! I really wanted something to blame when I was diagnosed with it, just because they kept telling me it had to be genetic, and absolutely no one in my family had it. But I'm okay with it now, at least I can see, and we caught it before I would've had to get a cornea transplant. All about perspective

            You should just run away and meet them, Ci!

            • Actually, there are success stories on here about people's eyesight improving when they "went primal". Refined foods could be to blame for anything

              "How far along are you?" comparison pics?

              Lol, good idea Ci. We'll just post a cat on top of Ombat and we'll be all set...

                  ohh I've been meaning to ask you ombat -- are you taking a break from exercise or do you just not feel like using the COY thingy anymore? just wonderiiiin =)
                  I know you're asking Ombat, but I've been shocking lately. I feel good right now though, so I want to set myself new goals when I get back to London. I'm coming to the conclusion that short term goals would work better for me...

                  • Yes, lets just take pictures of our bellies or post a cat over my face. Or both.

                    Ci, I'm sorry I've been neglecting it! I've been meaning to post an update for a while now. When I've been living at home in Tacoma (which seems to be never) I've been glued to my pull up bar and am seeing some awesome muscle definition starting to show up! Otherwise I just do the same ol body weight, jumping squats, etc. with no real regimen. Some days I've been too tired to do anything at all and I know that taking a nap will be more beneficial to me than exercising. I' ve also been doing a ton of walking in the past month which is unusual for me. Overall my body feels tighter / firmer which is awesome. Don't look much different though.
                    Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

                    • Ha, well after this holiday my body definitely looks different...!

                      Yeah, I've just been working out a lot with no real goals except "super fit forever." And, to be honest, I work out a lot because I've been stressed a lot and I've been eating some shit foods. Working out kind of takes the edge off of both of those things.

                      What kind of short-term goals were you thinking? Strength-related, ability related?
                      Lol, "shocking" is just a word I use when I'm displeased with myself

                      I think I need to set activity related goals. Like, I'm going to sprint every day next week. Or, I'm going to do 30 burpees a day for the next week. Plus mixing it up and doing exercise I feel like doing. I need to push myself to stick to things...

                      • I'll take pics of myself when I get home at the end of next week. Maybe I do look different. I just known that I dont look the same as before I started EAT. I catch myself in full length mirrors and dont recognize myself - my hips are bigger and thats all I see. But I have been told that my back looks more muscular.

                        • Yolo, why burpees? Things like burpees and sprints are some of the most metabolically taxing things you can do. I understand you are probably doing them to lose fat but i think its backfiring on you. Maybe instead of high intensity exercise, go the other end and do very low intensity balance and strength work, ala Ido. Doing this would not only keep you fresh but it would also advance your yoga much further then just burning cals.

                          • Ci, exercise can be therapeutic or stressful. For you I think it's the former (unless you overdo it) and for me and Yoyo it might be the latter (to a degree).

                            I'm not suggesting it has any connotation good or bad, but for me it's a fact and it's distracting enough to get my attention. It's all relative, which of course you understand having gone through drastic changes yourself and coming out healthier for it.

                            And Z... "Yolo" seriously? Haha

                                That's all I ever do usually. Haven't had my tape with me these last few weeks... thank fuck.! Don't think I'm going to bother measuring once I get back either.

                                Thanks Zach. We-ell, I don't actually do sprints or burpees. The reason I want to start incorporating them is cos I want to start seeing results from my exercise. I don't see anything from the lower intensity stuff, and I still get burnt out...

                                I think chronic cardio is stressful for everyone, but some people get addicted to it.

                                And Z... "Yolo" seriously? Haha
                                I've been called it before! You'll struggle to come up with a new nick name for me
