Food, Running, Weight Loss and The New World Order

I am writing this just after the U.S voted in Donald Trump.  The subject matter while essential for the existence of human life does seems to pale into insignificance when compared to the change in the new world order.

Food. The only time I lost a significant amount of weight was when I  counted the calories going into my body. I weighed all my food and noted everything down. I combined this with running and in a  short amount of time the fat started to drop off. The rest of the time I have  been deluding myself into thinking that whatever I eat I just burn off through lots of running. I know this yet I still stuff a white bread, processed cheese with salted peanuts covered in chill sauce sandwich down my neck at the same time saying in my head “I need the carbs”.

So with that in mind I have gone back to the tedium of weighing food and noting the exact amounts I shovel in my face. So I’m going to add a page to show what I’m putting in my system. You will be pleased to hear I won’t be making notes of what comes out. This is more for my own motivational purposes because like this blog about running, It is a tool that makes me run. So like a small side blog I’m going to note and list my intake.

Donald Trump! Ffs!

I got a text from my mate Gaz in the morning asking if I wanted an airing after being housebound for most of the week. It was a life saver. He was going to run around this beautifull lake twice while I went for a walk because I can’t run at the moment. I decided to knock myself up a bit of lunch and put on show the MSR pot (it’s all about the pot) I also made a quick video while I was out there.

SIMPLICITY TASTED GOOD

But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?

On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammelled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains.

A HEALTY SNACK

Everyone realizes why a new common language would be desirable: one could refuse to pay expensive translators. To achieve this, it would be necessary to have uniform grammar, pronunciation and more common words. If several languages coalesce, the grammar of the resulting language is more simple and regular than that of the individual languages. The new common language will be more simple and regular than the existing European languages. It will be as simple as Occidental; in fact, it will be Occidental. To an English person, it will seem like simplified English, as a skeptical Cambridge friend of mine told me what Occidental is. The European languages are members of the same family. Their separate existence is a myth. For science, music, sport, etc, Europe uses the same vocabulary. The languages only differ in their grammar, their pronunciation and their most common words. Everyone realizes why a new common language would be desirable: one could refuse to pay expensive translators. To achieve this, it would be necessary to have uniform grammar, pronunciation and more common words.

Lard

I run mostly because i eat like a horse. A horse that eats shit food and drinks to much. So i have given up the booze for awhile and started eating better food. I really do like healthy clean food and i do actually cook just about everything i eat. Its the quantity thats the problem. I have started using an App called My Fitness Pal. I'm pretty sure if you have any interest in these matters you would have heard of it if not then im going to do a post on it soon. I have used it on and off so far but when i do use it i find it really does work in an effort to lose a few pounds.

This afternoons lunch.

The Chips Are Down.

I am quite sure that in the “Keeping fit And Improving Running Manual” there is no reference to eating a massive plate of chips covered in mayonnaise and tomato sauce very late at night. Which of course is exactly what i did while watching The Masters on TV. Despite this i got up and went for a run for about an hour. I felt heavy.
