Health Improvement

A 5-post collection

So close...

When I started Keto, I weighed eighty-eight point eight (88.8) kilograms and believed I would never get lower than eighty neat.

This morning, I hit seventy-one point two (71.2). That's a little over seventeen and a half kilos that I thought I would never shed. And further - I am one and a bit kilos away from my goal weight.

On my Keto-versary, November the 22nd, I had successfully shed fourteen and a half kilos of that seventeen I've dropped. That's some successful shit.

In the words of Tumblr, Keto has cleared my skin, watered my crops, and defeated the evil overlord.

But seriously, all of my physical problems have nearly vanished inside of a year. My asthma is almost non-existent, my eczema has cleared up to the point that only I know it's there, and I have a greater mobility that I honestly believed I would never get back.

And this is after spending three months hovering around seventy-four kilos and believing that maybe, this was as far as I could go.

Keto wins as far as I'm concerned.

That said - it's not for everyone. My friendo in Tullagawupwup has to do the exact literal opposite of Keto or they'll frelling die. All I can say to anyone wanting to try it is start here and refer to this list for what you can and can't have.

And if you notice any health problems that aren't the Keto Flu, then stop that noise and get back to whatever worked best for you in the first place.

For those of you who are worried about Friendo's Kitty [F. Skitty], the fool creature actually managed to break his leg by tipping over his sandbox. F. Skitty has since been bandaged up and is on some primo painkillers. He has to be actively discouraged from playing, but is otherwise fine. It was a clean break and promises to heal in jig time.

I go tyre shopping tomorrow, which means that I can steal Beloved's car for running Mayhem all the way to Banyo for his traineeship.

But for now... I need my cheesy omelette.

Some Fun Now

I finished one epic and posted it. Yay.

I started posting another epic as a series before I'm anywhere near done. Yay... ish?

And now I'm working on a one-shot that's a companion to a different one-shot I made earlier. And might even be done soon. If I can convince myself to stay away from the other firkin epics.

Of course, working on them ensures that they get finished... and I might whittle down to one epic in the fullness of time.

For the first time in my life, I do not feel exhausted after doing sprints. In this case, 674 meters on the rowing machine, set to Maximum.

For the first time in my life, I have properly pink fingernails. As in, no longer pale and vaguely pinkish, but mostly vaguely purple-ish.

For the first time in my life, I can easily remember the day of the week and what date it is. I always needed some assistance with that one.

For the

First Sprint Day of the new workout regime and, owing to the early rain, we decided not to chance running our arses off on wet roads, but stayed home and skipped rope.

Things to remember:

  • Neither of us have skipped since our last Skipathon in Primary School.
  • That time is now literally decades ago.
  • The goal of Sprint Day is to do a fast-paced activity until you literally can't do it any more. Beloved mentioned the word "collapse".
  • I'm fighting gravity worse

Essential Trace Element(s)

Doesn’t it sound so scientific? It sounds like it comes with a free Guy/Gal in a Labcoat to explain in big words and complicated sentences why they are essential and how you can sign up for a special blind trial.

But really, today, I’m talking about silver.

Specifically, colloidal silver.

Colloidal silver is water with a tiny bit of silver in it. You can wiki it if you want to. And it can slowly improve your health
