Wish me luck!

6 Apr 20: I'm still doing OMAD and LC. I'm currently 188.8 lbs. Slipped a couple of days and ate caramel corn w/macadamia nuts and chips, but got back on track. Did recumbent bicycling for a couple of days (around 25 min) and infrequently did assisted pull-ups and barbell curls. Didn't finish my 8 cups of water for a couple of days, so I have to get better on that.

3 Apr 20: I'm seeing that the combination of OMAD and low carb (LC) are offsetting the weight gain associated with the very sedentary life of teleworking, drinking at least 8 cups of water and no aerobic exercise. I am currently in ketosis and have incorporated some light barbell curls, overhead presses and assisted pull-ups. I've went from 195.0 to 189.8 in four days. I'm sure that's mostly water, but I'll take it.

31 Mar 20: I'm still OMADing, but started to incorporate low carb into the mix yesterday. I think that due to a combination of teleworking, having more access to food during my eating window (I mean, I don't typically eat ice cream at work - but I do at home :( ), less (to no) activity, my weight has been creeping up. I'm drinking my requisite amount of water, which is an effort still. I was going to do a 14-day fast to try to get back on track (I've never done one before), but I decided to ease into a fast first by going low carb. By going low carb and going into ketosis, the hunger pangs are very much reduced - and this will actually give me an edge when I finally try the fast (7-day maybe?). In any event, after I get into ketosis, I'm going to consider starting my fast. Or not. :)

24 Mar 20: I was not getting enough water and was getting dehydrated. I think in cutting down from two to one meal a day, I did not compensate in taking more water. I have become mindful to now drink at least 8 cups of water a day. In so doing (and while doing OMAD), I've went from 189.8 to 193.2 in five days. Being on telework does not help as I'm basically stuck at the house. I'm sure as my body gets back to normal hydration-wise, I'll start to see the weight go down again.

19 Mar 20: Currently doing OMAD with no exercise (yet). Basically eating whatever I want in my window – Cake? Yup. Pizza? Check. Fried Chicken? Right. – but I’m not going too crazy. My plan is to leave any muscle building activity out until I’m around 150 lbs - and then will incorporate to fill in some loose-skin areas 😊. I really feel that I can do this with OMAD!

My Program:
One Meal A Day (OMAD). If I want (or circumstances dictate) another meal (e.g. party or holiday), I have one, no problem – typically few and far between though.

Personal Information:
I currently live in Hawaii. I have lived in different parts of South Korea for a total of 12 years - I loved it there (except for the parking and driving congestion). I’ve also lived in Guam, Florida, Alabama, Colorado, and Virginia. I’ve visited The Philippines, China, Mexico and Canada and have been through 29 of the 50 states for business or travel.

Other Information:
I love playing music. I used to play electric bass in a few bands, but for fun and relaxation I am now noodling around with my ukulele for the most part. Love karaoke too.
