Punched 10 miles on extreme Cardio. Our facility was hit by lightning last night. A transformer blown up in the strike. Or generator came on. I kept going on something else. Our Peloton may have been fried. No power at all, or breaker flipped. But yeah it was a great workout till the electricity was struck. Crazy night.

I was not necessarily fat. However, I am only 5' 4" and I was weighing 168 pounds. I was able to shred all the way down to "an ideal weight" for my age and height. In the past two and a half months I have lost 16 pounds and I am now down to 152 pounds and if I weight myself first thing in the morning my weight is exactly 150 pounds. I accomplished this by eating strictly vegetarian and fruits and occasional seafood on weekends and working out 4 times a week with a 30 minutes of moderate cardio and then resistance training. I have also eliminated sugars but not completely. I do not drink soda or beer.

There are many ways to get healthy, but you have to eat right to get maximum benefits regardless of how you exercise. I walk the golf course when it isn't too hot, otherwise I use my golf cart. I'm in a heat wave ATM, and it's 102 outside, might hit 104. Yesterday was hot too, 102
I've been making my own pickles for the last 2 years, and have decided to branch out this year. I ferment the pickles, I don't drown them in vinegar like most store bought pickle makers do. I've never cared for the taste of vinegar. I'm trying different veggies & fermenting them instead of regular canning. I have to get more refrigerator space soon, all this stuff must be refrigerated or it will continue to ferment, ending up as a mush. Not a pleasant mush! I currently have 6 pints of pickles in the fermenting stage, as well as one quart of asparagus, and one gallon of garden mix with broccoli, carrots, cauliflower and spiced with one half of a Walla Walla sweet onion, some pickling spice mix, and a few cloves of garlic. I put garlic in everything! I think I'll have to put up more asparagus, I've already sampled a few spears and they are very good.
Best thing about eating fermented veggies is they are about the most probiotic way there is to eat veggies. It's good for the gut! Think about this: when the fermentation process is done all the vegetables are pre-digested. These little bacteria have already done the hard work for you, and all the good stuff is still there, along with some things those little bacteria leave behind. I know of only one brand of pickles that are fermented, they are called Bubbies. Try em, if you like them you can make your own quite easily. They are very good, but $8 for 33 oz. at the local health food store. Mine cost much less, and I can adjust for my taste. I always start out with organic vegetables. Cooked vegetables lose a lot of their goodness, and no enzyme can survive even mildly cooking.
I'm also giving yogurt making a try out. I've started my first batch today, should be done and ready for the fridge in about 3 more hours. I'm using organic whole raw milk from the local health food store, who get it from a farm just 50 miles away. It was bottled up and shipped yesterday. Nice thing about unflavored yogurt is you can put anything you want in it for flavor. One of my favorites is raspberries. Since my raspberries are done for the year I'll use raspberry jam. Good stuff!
My understanding is that RFM (Relative Fat Mass) is actually more accurate in estimating body fat (a DEXA Scan being the most accurate). The formula for RFM, for men, is: 64 – (20 x height/waist circumference). You use the same scale as for BMI. On that scale I come in at a nice 23.7
When I started my serious diet/walking routine on March 1st, my RFM was 26.0. Today it is 19.3.
