Need changing some nasty habits...

I work on a computer all day long... Commute to work by car... Not much opportunity to walk, which used to help a lot to keep my weight under control. In addition, I tend to eat emotionally, when I am relaxing at night. I like to snack all the time!!! What a killer habit! I figured I have to change this habit, because I think it can be changed. I also need to pick up some cardio exercises...

Well, after a year of making it a priority for me I managed to get my weight ...

---- EDIT ----
Well, after a year of making it a priority for me I managed to get my weight under control. I had lost 6kgs before joining SP, and I have lost 19kgs since joining SP. I still would like to lose more fat, but at this stage it is way too slow. I have ditched for good my emotional or comfort eating. I have even learned not touching my daughter's ice-creams even if the fridge is full of them, without using ANY willpower at all. I have also developed several good habits of exercise, like cycling, running and weight lifting. And yes, these positive changes helped with other fields of my life too. So, overall feeling great, but still chasing a lower body fat percentage. Hopefully next year this time I will have reached my target body fat percentage, and I will edit this text for maintenance.

My Goals:
Getting rid of emotional eating and making cardio workouts a habit...
---EDIT---
Reducing my body fat percentage to 15%.

My Program:
- Workout.
- Learn to enjoy workout.
- Eat right.
- Sleep early, get up early.
- Keep the mood positive no matter what.
---EDIT---
- Mild/no deficiency of calories, almost like maintaining, but not quite.
- Lifting heavy weights 2x a week.
- Mountain biking 1x a week
- Running 2x a week
- Taking 2 rest days a week

Other Information:
I am a lover of science fiction everything. Fond of computers, programming, mathematics, physics and engineering. Chemistry was never a favorite, I don't know why. May be because it is some type of physics where the focus is on a reduced subset of phenomena? (Chemists will probably get angry at this point).

Thanks for your comment on my blog about ketogenic diets for performance. From my own, very limited, experience it seems that once the human body is keto-adapted that the body uses fat before muscle. I was able to gain some muscle with fairly minimal strength training on about 50 grams of carbs and no more than 70-80 grams of protein/day. I'm hoping to do a little more over the next three months to see if I can improve my body composition. The book indicates that gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet is not only possible but potentially easier.

Thanks for your comment on my "Breathing Test and Running" blog. I am very concerned about my in ability to run and bike well. I am doing OK. But my ability to really hit it hard is very limited.

Thanks, Bruce

Thanks for reading my "HAPE and Asthma" blog. I have really gained a lot of confidence with my mountain bike riding lately. My personal "Mangled Mountain" trail system has really let me experiment with the edge of the envelope.

Little Cam is a well balanced machine. It was only after installing a bike computer that I realized the speed that Little Cam could generate on curves.

30 mph is a bit faster than I really intended but the trail had some nice banks and Little Cam was flowing so well.

Keep on riding!

Bruce

Your comment on my "Asthma and Bike Brakes" brought a smile to my face. Sometimes I think I am crazy. I bought an entry-level Specialized Camber and proceeded to upgrade it well past the higher-end Camber models.

It is always better to buy the best bike you can afford. In retrospect, the Giant Trance 0 would have been a better buy. But the Trance doesn't handle like the Camber.

So I was stuck. The2012 26" Camber Elite and Expert models sold-out last year. I didn't want a 29" Camber. The only 26" Camber available was the entry-level Comp. To meet a lower price-point of the entry level market, the drivetrain componets were not up to par for the riding that I do.

My first outing with the Camber showed that the bike still had a lot of good parts. I confined myself to easy trails and the bike performed well. It is when I took the bike into more ddemanding terrain that the weaknesses in the drive train showed up. The first disaster was a bent front wheel. The wheels were fine for easy trail riding. But not for rough and rocky terrian.

The upgrades have turned a good trail bike into a great all mountain bike. I am very happy with the bike. All the 26" Cambers have sold out. The slower handling 29" Cambers are all that is being made now. What a shame.

Thanks, Bruce

Thanks for your comments to my question. I was thinking the same thing, just needed confirmation.
