Personal Log: Journey Into Getting Healthy


Mar 24, 2019
As I'm sure many have done before me, I'm going to use this thread as a personal log to track my progress and experiments, keep myself motivated to achieve my health related goals, and potentially receive community input and feedback along the way.

- Tendency to under eat
- Sitting down (next to a wireless router) most of the time when I'm not at work.

- Probable hard water in the shower

Goals | 5/8/2020 -
- Organize a proper diet and meal plan where I meet the recommended (via Danny Roddy's videos) daily benchmarks of: 1.3 - 2 grams of protein per kg of bodyweight / 2 - 4 grams of carbohydrates per 1 gram of protein / Lower unsaturated fat intake
- Have lab work done to find out my: Total Cholesterol / TSH / Carbon Dioxide / Serum Calcium / Serum Phosphate / Prolactin / Parathyroid Hormone / Testosterone
- Clean the mold out of the bathroom
- Start a simple calisthenics program to build strength and flexibility while I get my diet in order.

I'm looking forward to finally taking some action on these issues and hopefully seeing some improvements from it. I'll post an update on where I'm at, what's changed, and what goals I've met every 3 months. Here's to our health!
