Pudge Factor -- High!  
Okay, time for slightly drastic measures, i.e., a diet.

Not a strict one, by any means, just a simple "avoid fast food whenever possible, and eat slightly healthier crap." Case in point -- today's lunch is chicken stir fry, instead of beef, with a rather higher proportion of veggies. And fruit for snacks in the fridge, blah, blah, blah.

We'll see how long this lasts.

More importantly, though, I need to get the hiking routine going again -- I've barely moved the last two months, ever since going back to Kansas City for the funeral. Time to get back on track. Or the trail, as the case may be.

Plus study, study, study, but I've already covered that. Albeit in 日本語.

Good luck! Go easy on fast food and soft drinks and you're already half way there.

Soft drinks are easy, because I never drink them anyway. Nasty yucky sugar.

Fast food though... Fast food is greasy and delicious.

I haven't seen it but the movie Super Size Me ought to scare you away from fast food.

Watched it last week, but it just made me hungry. So I went to Wendy's.

I wasn't really that impressed (I mean, like OMG, duh, you start eating that much greasy food that quickly, of course your insides are gonna get unhappy. That uncomfortable feeling? That's called indigestion. Reflux, anybody? And, uh, newsflash, nothing but fast food isn't healthy. Kinda knew that already).

Amen, greasy and delicious. So I have to be like an AA person about it, because if I break down and get us all some fast food, it's like "Hey kids, how about another six of the same, what do you say??"

Working at home, I can snack whenever I like, so I try to have really boring stuff around. And then I try to do something like juggle or drink tea before I reach for the cornflakes or the graham crackers (see... boring).

Here's an inspiring story for you--substitute hiking for running if you want:

I used to see this guy running every morning. He was a fairly youngish guy, and he had this gut, and I thought, wow, no fair, he's going to all the trouble of running, and yet he has this gut. And this just kept on being true--he kept on running, but he didn't seem to change shape, for quite some time--months. But then, I don't know, our schedules changed and I didn't notice him for about six months. And then recently I've seen him again, running. He is SO IN SHAPE! He looks great! Just **looking** at him makes me want to try a slow, long, physical discipline, so I could be all in shape. He's my hero now.

I agree. Fast food is greasy and delicious,... my plan worked, though that might be harder for you...which is that I don't leave money available for
it.^^ Good luck! I'll help you, hehe... if you ever need it. And we can work that into Kaiwa dinners *grin*
