Also entertained myself climbing rocks today:

Green only

Purple only, showing off

yellow only

I can do 5Cs on rock climbing walls and most of the time on bouldering sections(grip dependent).


You've really turned into a gym cat Mort how long has it been now since you've started on the healthy life stuff?

Dont worry, it tasted good. Issue is probably a bit too much sweetener and whey protein has its fair share of controversies... But again I don't do this everyday, so...

About 11 months or so. Unfortunately I'm losing my corporate gym membership since my company doesn't want to continue so I dunno if I am disciplined to push myself through body weights. Because it's easy to increase difficulty in the gym. 5kg on each side too easy? Add an additional 1.25 kg plate on each side.

After you've done 20 push ups, then what next? You're not doing all the way to 100 are you...?


Eh I guess one could just maintain an equilibrium instead of pushing forward, or you could find interesting ways to add difficulty like one armed push ups or even hand stand push ups. Apparently Charles Atlas developed a work out routine that was done completely by putting muscles against muscle no weights required.

The Exchange

I mean I can do 100 body weight squats/air squats, whatever you choose to call them. However I find it rather boring to push all the way to 100 since there's not much element of challenge in them.

I tried to do pistol squats but I still am not there yet, I need a wall assist. Body weights don't have middle grounds. Either you can pull up or you can't ><

For weights you can always look and say, right
I deadlifted 17.5kg on each side. Let's do 20kg next time!

The Exchange

But the sad truth is that you'd probably find 17.5 kg or even 20 kg on each side easy because you're bigger then I am, Vidmaster7 =(

I suppose that's why there are weight categories.


Yeah but I doubt in the same 11 months if I could train myself to run a quarter of the distance you do.

The Exchange

The progression from standard push ups is to find a bench. Then put your feet on them and do push ups. I tried with my hind paws on the bed and yeah it's hard. I'll try that once I can do 20 standard push ups in a set without breaks.

Try the couch to 5k, but before you do that, check your BMI. I personally feel that if it's too high(25+),youre giving your joints undue stress.


I've done those in the past. It's rough.

My goal this week is to consistently do some meaningful form of exercise every day. This is how far behind I am. I need to motivate myself and make time for it. I'm no where near where you are right now. Trying to find ways of escalating what your doing. I need to get back to where I was first.

Next time you need to get from one place to the other on foot, power walk it. I power walk with my stuff to go join the local running group running. Or routine of body weights before you go to work.

Dont forget to cut down your food input if you are sedentary. Hack your bodies calorie counter by eating tons of fibre and protein.

Mmmmmmmmmmmm fiber

The Exchange

Just eat a whole lot of brocolis and cauliflowers. That's fibre. Then there's chicken breast for protein. Or tilapia fillets (still trying to find a source here).

The Exchange

I'm quite intrigued by this recipe actually.


Hate cauliflower with a burning burning passion even more so then broccoli.

There's lots of vegetables out there. Try some French beans stir fried with minced pork =)

This is the hardest part of losing weight for me. I just like eating too much.

The Exchange

Hack your system by stuffing it full of vegetables and lean proteins (fish and chicken are good). You'll feel full without busting your calorie budget. Also, liquid calories add needless calories so please stay off em.

Id like to see you have my old lunch with the brocolis and cauliflowers. Half a tub is pretty filling. And no one ever manages to eat a lot of chickpeas. You'll get full before anything else happens.


I can get through chickpeas like nobody's business. They used to sell trays of a dozen or so cans for £1 at the Pakistani supermarket near me when I was a student, and that was basically what I lived off (that and lentils). Made me the man I am today.

After doing batch cooking this morning, I exercised for around two hours (sword and shield, mainly), then it was the birthday meal for one of the players in my Sunday D&D group, so we had a curry (very good, but I can't remember what it was called..) and a drink (very sub-par porter).

AKA "eat lots of food I don't like" or "eat lots of food that is expensive".

Broccoli is tolerable but all the toppings and additives required to make it so kind of kill the ability to use it for dieting purposes. Chicken is the same, on its own its bland and unappetizing and adding enough flavor to make it enjoyable ruins the low-calorie aspect of it. Fish is just plain expensive on top of having the same problem. And cauliflower and chickpeas I just hate.

Which is the majority of the problem with dieting, really. All the foods that are good for you are either not tasty to eat, expensive to acquire, or both. While foods that are bad for you are flavorful, cheap, or both.

The Exchange

I guess I am blessed with the eat anything feat, so I literally eat anything. Brocolli and oyster sauce stir fry is enough for me. Heck I might even just eat it with salt and pepper. (Yes, I have no standards)

If you need to spice chicken up, I suggest sesame oil, ginger and a sh*t load of dried chillis. Ought to build a nice fire in your mouth and belly =) If you can take spicy stuff that is. Otherwise start slow and add one dried chilli per week. I'm up to 4 dried chillis for 5 days of chicken now.

Farmed catfish here is pretty cheap - like $4.50 for 600g. Beans also are filling like no ones business.

French beans, anyone? Or how about a peas+ mushroom +chicken + oyster sauce stir fry? A tablespoon of oyster sauce which is about 9 calories isn't going to kill anyone in the long scheme of things.

Asian supermarkets are also good for finding cheap deals for leafy greens. Go for xiao bai cai, dou miao(pea shoots), chye sim, nai bai(a little more green).

And I know a mean cabbage, sh*take mushroom, dried shrimp and minced pork stir fry. Turnips and carrots can be added to improve the dish's appearance as well.

I can't take more then 150g of chickpeas in a single sitting. It's too filling. Ooof.


French beans are like the only kind of beans I like. I've been experimenting with dry frying them with some szechuan pepper corns. pretty good all and all.

So I got to the level 7 of Slay the spire and it is a hard brick wall. I have had no luck getting any further at all.


Do you mean Ascension level 7?

Try fermented bean paste or miso as well. It also works. For other vegetables there's always capsicum with black pepper beef slices.


Oh I do like Miso, And I do eat a lot of peppers.

All I can say is keep trying. I've beaten level 12 with Ironclad and 11 with both of the others, so it's possible. Just gotta find the right cards, and may have to adjust your strategy.

so am I right in thinking that each ascension keeps all the negatives of the previous ones? Because man if that is the case I don't know how one would get to 20.

Yep, each level just keeps getting harder. For instance, right now I'm trying level 12 with Defect, and the penalties are:

Elites spawn more often
Normal enemies are deadlier
Elites are deadlier
Bosses are deadlier
Heal less after boss battles
Start each run damaged
Normal enemies are tougher
Elites are tougher
Bosses are tougher
Start each run cursed
Fewer potion slots
Upgraded cards appear less often

Broccoli (or brokkoli) and cauliflower is life. No cheese. Butter is fine, but not required.

Broccoli in a stir-fry...yes please.
