75 degrees this morning, walk 34:57 minutes, 88% humidity.
Walk was a little strange this morning, when I was away from the wind, I would get hot, when I was in the wind, I would get cold! Not really that bad, but it was enough I noticed it. No moon visible this morning.
Sitting out on the patio this morning, it is wonderful, as long as I can stay out of the breeze!
A button on my exercise shorts snapped off while I was doing my weights this morning, a sure sign I have to seriously start eating less! I have long realized that exercise helps, but eating less is absolutely necessary to losing weight.
Actually, exercise can increase your metabolic rate (consume more calories) for hours after you finish exercising.
Also, my research indicates (actually research I did for a speech) is that a pound of muscle burns 50 calories more per day than a pound of fat, which is one reason I became interested in weightlifting.
Overall, I have found the only “diet” that works for me is low-carbs, not the extreme low carb diet, but elimination or at least minimize the “fast carbs” in bread etc. I never worried about the carbs in fruits and vegetables. They have a lot of carbs,, but they are “slow carbs”.
Finishing up on the Robert Moses biography (it is a 66 hour audio book, so it has taken a while), I learned one the the biggest factors in his downfall was his inability to consider honest feedback, especially any kind of negative feedback.
He would have a spoiled brat fit if someone told him bad news and blamed the messenger. Of course the result is a bunch of people who didn’t tell him want he needed to hear (so he could fix it) until it was too late.
Sounds like the current lying coward lunatic we currently have to deal with!
While I haven’t had the time to really follow the supreme court nominee situation, he has shown he is absolutely unfit for the supreme court (or any court) by his little fit that shows he is a bigot, and sees a conspiracy behind every rock. He has some real problems that he should never be able to “judge” anyone else!
The fact that this lille tantrum endeared him to the lying coward pervert lunatic and his band of cowards is really scary, in fact absolutely frightening for the future of our country. They are out of touch with any sort of reality in their rush to shovel tax $ to their donors and lobbyists and use the government for their own perverted goals.
Last day of September today. I treasure every morning on the patio, since I never know when it will be my last for about 6 to 8 months!
That’s it for now, Sunday, September 30, 2018.
