A Happy New Year.
So here’s what we can do in real life: identify the badasses who are higher levels than you, who already are what you want to become. Then learn from them!
I am not calling it a new years resolution, because those usually don’t last.
To be specific, I am hovering over 200 lbs now and I’d like to be under 190 lbs and keep it there. To do so, I am going back to practicing Aikido (2014 goal: Pass 3rd-Kyu Rank Test) and am leaning toward doing Paleo Diet — meaning not completely eliminating food that are not allowed (like Soft Drinks, Fruit Juices, Legumes i.e. peanuts, Grains, Fatty Meats, Salty Foods, Starchy Vegetables, Snacks, Energy Drinks, Sweets), but rather “limiting” them. For example, I am Japanese and can’t completely eliminate rice. I am going haiga rice first, and eventually maybe moving towards brown rice (yuck!). But, can I reduce the amount or donuts that I eat? Sure, I can. No soft drinks and energy drinks ever again. Sure. The diet calls for no beer/alcohol, but well, again, limiting not eliminating. I can Still eat all meats, all fish/seafood, fruits and veggies, Eggs, nuts.
And I am going to go on a vacation, either a cruise or all-inclusive trip. And am finally going to apply for my citizenship before I turn 40! Clock is ticking. I have 5 month.
