Open letter to CTV

I hate your ass. I'm primed to watch the season finale of Lost. Now I have to find something else to do while you air 2 hours of shitty american idol programming before the second half of the Lost finale. What was wrong with airing 2 hours of lost in a row?

Also, your commercials aired in SD widescreen format suck. please tell your advertisers to either start making commercials in HD widescreen, or in full frame. black bars at the top, bottom, AND sides is NOT cool. i pay for a gigantic widescreen, and the ad takes up maybe 1/4 of the screen. it looks bad.

Back on the fitness track

So, I've started morphing into a fatass over the past few years. I decided i should do something about it. Went back to the gym, changed my diet. started losing weight, gaining muscle. It's not actually very hard to do, you just have to keep doing it, and be patient.

I was reading this guys article, and he's had some really great results in a similar workout to what I'm doing.
-I work out at the gym twice a week for half an hour.
-I work out every muscle group.
-I do the exercise nice and slowly to maintain constant, even pressure. 2 seconds up, 3 seconds down.
-I cycle to work whenever possible, and take walks freqently.
-I avoid starchy/high-carb foods such as potatoes, pasta, rice. when possible.
-I avoid large meals, in favor of more frequent smaller meals. This gives a more even bloodsugar level during the day, and sugar crashes.
-I avoid eating for 2 hours before bedtime. if you eat directly before you go to bed, the calories mostly go straight into body fat, because your metabolism shuts down at night.
-I try to work more raw vegetables into my diet. generally the more processed something is, the worse it is for you. raw veggies are filling, refreshing, and good for you.

I'm losing bodyfat at a good rate, and rapidly gaining strength, and I hardly put in any time at all. how much benefit you see out of trying this stuff is dependent on how much of it you stick to. of course, I don't care to take all the measurements that some people do, I can actually see myself improving, and thats good enough for me.

I've gotta get rid of all this world of warcraft chubbiness I put on. :)
