    How is the diet going?

    I am getting my 8K steps in.

    • It’s amazing how easy it is to fast for 18 hours. Today, though, it didn’t happen as we had a family dinner that went late and I kept eating. However, I won’t be needing to eat anything tomorrow until late afternoon, so there will be another 18-20 hour fast. Next on the list is to eliminate sugar and white flour completely; hasn’t happened yet.

    • It takes time and there or times you can just have a cup of coffee/tea with your friends.
      I like Jason Fung’s take of you just get resources from another source. One is still getting energy but instead of that day’s food you tap into one’s store of fat.

    I’ve been at the pool more in spirit than 100% presence, it seems. I was there 3 times this past week. I’m in a bit of a slump it seems but hope to ‘right my ship’ before too much longer. I’ve been wanting to thank whomever recommended ‘The Obesity Code’ as I am implementing an intermittent fast and it does seem to be making me feel better. What do you do about all the rice in your Japanese diet? Seriously; not asking for a friend.

    • I think you heard about the “The Obesity Code” from me who heard about it from Stu in Tokyo. It is good way to control the diet. I thought I would never be able to do it and it sounded a little crazy.

      Lately I don’t eat very much rice.
      Part of the diet is knowing you can just forget about food for a day.
      Let me know how it goes.

    I am still doing my 8000 steps a day.
    How is your swimming coming along?

  • 10 Cents posted an update in the group Group logo of Water RatsWater Rats 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    Thank you for the post, Susan.
    I just finish another week of daily 8000+steps walking.
    How is the swimming?

    • I hope you liked it. I wanted it to be ‘just right’ and had a lot of hesitation about putting myself ‘out there.’ Writing for an unknown audience is daunting. Would you mind if I posted our group portrait at the legacy site? I won’t do it if you don’t think it’s a good idea.
      Swimming going okay. Have been super low-energy of late but hope to get that figured out before too much longer.

    I am still keeping up my daily 8k of walking.

    Still swimming!
    Still recovering from my November illness.
    And, putting the final touches on a post about our time with you. No sense rushing things, you know.

    I was going to swim today (thinking of what the road to hell is paved with…) but it didn’t happen. I plan to swim – in The Outdoor Pool – on New Year’s Eve morning with my fellow otters. Should be a great way to usher out 2019. Also, I am finally putting together a post about our trip to see Japan and its resident socks. I know I have alluded to this (see above, re: paving materials) for months. I think now I am ready.

    Hi Dime,
    I’ve been out of town for a while and little internet access. I swam once while on the road. Hoping to get my last two days of the year in on 12/30 and 12/31!

    Still getting my daily steps in and the exercise bike.
    Are you swimming, Susan?

  • 10 Cents posted an update in the group Group logo of Water RatsWater Rats 3 months, 3 weeks ago

    I got in 13647 steps so far today. I got some writing done on my exercise bike. I even got some push-ups in.
    Susan, how is it going?

  • 10 Cents posted an update in the group Group logo of Water RatsWater Rats 3 months, 3 weeks ago

    I have been getting in my 8K steps and desk/bike time. I will try to get in some push-ups.

    Great to hear from you, Susan.

    I got in my 8000 yesterday.

    Today I was on the bike for about an hour so far I have 3000 steps in.

    • I swam for the first time in a month on 02 December (had been very ill with some kind of virus). I was to swim outdoors today (every Saturday is outdoor pool day) but it was way too cold so decided not to. Good you’re getting steps in.

    I have been dry. I try to get in 8000 steps and time on a stationary bike 6 times a week.

    Open water swimming in Martha Lake this morning. Perfect weather, great company, good breakfast afterwards.
    I’d post a photo but I don’t know how to!

  • Susan in Seattle posted an update in the group Group logo of Water RatsWater Rats 1 year, 10 months ago

    Swimming in open water again tomorrow, the 28th.
    Have you worn your NEO cap yet?

    Hey dimeboy!
    2100 yards today, 05/05 in an outdoor pool with the sun shining just perfectly on all of us. 21oo yards yesterday as well. Good to see you have returned to the H2O!
