On the dieting side of matters.. Try reducing your rations and eat longer, with lots of water. Might be unpleasant for the first 3 days, but then the hormones will get used to the pattern. Water has no calories, stretches your stomach walls faster and triggers excretion of hormones making you feel full. Longer lasting [slow] meals give enough time for the stomach to digest some stuff and shove it down the CI pipeline, triggering another set of hormones making you feel full. Hunger-habit hormones will start adjusting after ~3days.
Next step : ditch late night snacks/meals. After 6pm only water and maybe some healthy snack are on the whitelist. Better just water.
Any changes in diet/exercise takes ~2weeks for any effect to appear
talking from my own [successful] xp ;)
Hazarth7405115dInteresting analysis and approach, keep us updated!
Also do you know darebee? They make tons of custom exercise plans, many of them are no-equipment ones.
Wisecrack727798dExercise while you do your chores.
Better yet challenge the kids. Theyll be enthusiastic when you tell them they dont get to eat breakfast unless they can beat you at pushups.
Or just get people to hold you accountable. People who ask you "did you exercise this morning?"
Well did ya?
Oktokolo1015018dIf you need 25 minutes to do the dishes, you aren't at home but in a restaurant. Also when doing dishes by hand, do them right after eating - when the residues did not dry and harden yet.
scor339217d@Oktokolo probably just got a bit of XP with this chore and slightly optimised it.
!DA-related, rather mgmt.
If you, @JsonBoa, are doing all the chores, where does that leave the other parent of your kids and your mother in law to do anything?
That might not just be an unfair load distribution, but a strong factor of dissupport.
Precision. There may be too much emphasis on distinct tasks of your daily workload. Try re-evaluating their weights / importance / processes and dependencies / effects.
Also, you sound quite committed.
Employers love committed workers, but only a minority will gratify this behaviour.
As a parent, allow yourself more time off your employer. That's how modern societies actually do work. It's part of the generations contract.
Thinking of time off your employer, I mean taking paid work time for yourself.
Thats how I observed many doing it and this practice being widely accepted.
Also I seem to be lucky having found an employer that actively promotes and enables a healthy lifestyle. So hear hear, echo chamber to myself.
