So the last several years have been… challenging… for my health.
My day job keeps me sitting at my computer all day.
Kids being born has wreaked havoc on my sleep, although that is finally getting better.
Said day job and unhealthy food habits have really packed on the pounds.
And I had gall bladder surgery about a year ago.
The bottom line is that over the last 5 or so years I’ve gained about 50 pounds.
So last week I decided to go back to my healthier ways. I am going full keto/paleo and doing intermitent fasting on a daily basis. One could argue that it’s not so intermittent if you do it every day, but whatever.
This morning I went to dexafit.com and got a DEXA scan, a basal metabolic rate test, and a VO2 max test. Bottom line is I am 44% fat (!) and my cardio is crap.
My plan last week was to get used to my new diet for about a month and then start working out again. I should probably stick with that, but now I want to start working out immediately.
We’ll see how it goes I guess.
