Eat Less and Exercise More!!!

Oh Boy! What you can not measure you can not control. My weight scale is broken for last month or so and I have no clue what is my current body weight. I did yoga practice today and my girlfriend snapped lots of photos of my yoga poses which I mostly deleted. My belly is enormous and frankly I am out of shape.

Whether I recognize it or not, or maybe I just don't even want to admit it, I'm in the best period of my life. However, yesterday I had a pain in left knee which is just a logical consequence of my current life. I felt pain while moving from sitting to standing and that made me so nervous.

The weekend was not so great. My girlfriend came on Friday night with the fever, she was sick all the weekend taking Tylenol, coughing and sneezing. I did everything in my ability to make her cozy at my place, gave her attention and encouragement and cook for her all weekend. But she was absent minded, distant and difficult to please. I don't know, is that because of sickness or is there something else. To be quite honest I'm tired to think about it. I promised her that I will not write about our relationship here on my blog so I'll keep what I think to myself.

I have to concentrate on other important things in my life. Now I see, it is time to leave my old habits, time to say goodbye to my lazy self... and goodbye to empty words. I have a nice schedule planned for 2018 and now I've to be disciplined enough to follow it.

My first vacation goes from April 28 to May 6... I want to do two yoga practices a day. But Am I satisfied by words and so easily fall into an imagined and wishful thinking? The reality is that I am lazy, weak... and fat. I've observed the people on my last vacation. 95% of both men and women over 40 were fat with large bellies. I don't want to be like them but I am just like them.

I have eat a lot, drink a lot and my belly fat is enormous. I have no definition of a real man. I must change that, so today I am starting a new life...

One of the most common questions on the Google search is how to get rid of belly fat. Belly fat is actually the most dangerous type of fat – besides aesthetics, large waist lines are indicators of  disease. Believe me or not, it is all about stress - the stress about relationship problems, daily stress at work, worries about future and regrets from the past... It is all about fucking stress.

Belly fat starts to deposit in midsection when cortisol levels spike. Stress is one of the primary culprits for high levels of cortisol secretion. When this happens cortisol breaks downs lean muscle (the type of tissue that burns calories most efficiently) and also holds on to fat storage in the abdominal region.

Things became interesting with bad dieting which actually cause more stress which again is causing increase of cortisol levels.. and there you go, belly fat is a natural consequence. So, knowing this, how do I proceed from this moment.

It is Sunday evening, I am alone at home, the apartment is clean, clothes washed... I have nothing to do whatsoever. So I am going to read writings on subject of spiritual enlightenment. It is my goal in life and I am returning to that.

1. So the first thing I am going to do from now on is to change priorities in my life. I am setting the Spiritual Work the main priority of my life. Everything that goes against it will be eliminated form my life. I have already lost my family due to spirituality and my devotion to enlightenment, so I am continuing toward same direction. If I am wrong, so be it.

2. I am going to bed at 9 p.m. No phone calls, no beer drinking, no text messages. I need 7 to 8 hours of sleep everyday, the sleep alters hormone production, affecting cortisol levels that cause insulin sensitivity, prime reasons for belly fat! Getting about 7 hours of sleep a night is one of the best things I can do for my body shaping goals.

3. I am going start taking 2M IU of Vitamin C which helps balance the cortisol spikes that happen to me under stress. Besides being a good way to counteract a cold, Vitamin C is also essential for making substances used by the body to turn fat into fuel, making this vitamin my fat burning friend.

4. Daily ashtanga yoga is a must.

That's it for now. I start with these 4 things. I hate to say this but the more I look around me the more ashamed I am human. I'm not buying this culture, this planet and this world. Those, barbecue parties, kids education, big houses, big cars, management positions, stress and overtime work. Simple, I'm not buying the frustrations. I am going my own way.
