Comments for Charlie Griefer Figuring it out as I go Thu, 26 Jun 2014 05:02:34 +0000 hourly 1 Comment on Post-Master Cleanse Update (Updated with Photos) by kiki Thu, 26 Jun 2014 05:02:34 +0000 First of all I have to commend you for doing the entire month. I am just off my 10 day cleanse tomorrow. I would like to ask about your post-cleanse diet. What did you eat for the week following and what does “somewhat” exercised, mean?

I ask because these two steps after the cleanse are imperative to the success of the cleanse. Firstly, I have lost 10 pounds in 10 days. I was 140 now I am 130. I have an excess of energy and I work out everyday during my cleanse. Tonight I did 30 minutes cardio and 45 minutes weights, I did planks, kettlebell swings and I did lower body weights with 30 squats. THAT’S WORKING OUT. The biggest challenge is getting up from your couch to do it. I noticed my stomach has shrunk tremendously since I started and because I am working out as often as I can before the soreness kicks in late afternoons I think it’s going to be the difference between gaining it back in fat and gaining it back in muscle. I will do a meal replacement with a protein shake in the morning and for lunch as always, veggies, fish or chicken. Eating clean is the key. Sauces, dressings, carbs, processed foods will always get the best of you afterwards. These are not just solids, they are terrible for you if you want to maintain the weight off. For dinner more veggies and fish or chicken. That’s clean. When you incorporate a carb you have to know the amount you’re taking it because you are going to have to burn it off to keep a balance. You can’t just run for 10 minutes and say you worked out. Or go to the gym and lift 10lbs of weights for 13 minutes and say you did your day’s exercise. I don’t know what you do so I am not speaking of YOU personally, I am speaking in general. A lot of people confuse moving around with working out. I pick up boxes from time to time at work – not working out, I walk fast from my office to my train less than a mile away, also not a workout. These are just small instances of cardio. I know I HAVE TO workout often and hard and I have to be motivated if I expect to continue to lose weight and gain muscle. I also understand that just because my boyfriend can stuff a burger in his mouth every other day and not gain a pound doesn’t mean I should also. We often live our spouse’s lives as our own. We are not them, and we need to take responsibility for how WE eat. Cutting alcohol was a great challenge because EVERYONE DRINKS, but I know I love beer and I love sake and I love mimosas but I can’t have beer and drinks more than twice a week or I will be stepping on the same doo doo that got me to the 140s. In conclusion, the cleanse for me has been an awakening of all my senses. A reset of my body’s clock and the HEALTHIEST thing I have ever done for myself. I will continue to do my cleanse every few months because I feel that great. I will also continue with my workout routine because that is just the way health and fitness works. That’s why it’s call a WORKout. It’s not going to jump on you while you sleep and bingo you are stronger. You have to get up, breath, and get out that door or pick up those weights.

The text in your article seem to be running
off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a format issue
or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to
let you know. The style and design look great though!
Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Cheers

Comment on So Long and Thanks for… well, you know. by Jason Fisher Wed, 18 Jun 2014 00:33:55 +0000 Charlie,

I have followed both your worlds with deep interest, your insights on ColdFusion leading me to follow your open view of your life’s journey. Thank you for posting links to both of your new efforts so I can keep following you.

And, yeah, go Giants! (19 new veteran free agents signed already this off-season??)

Comment on So Long and Thanks for… well, you know. by John Farrar Tue, 17 Jun 2014 13:55:30 +0000 We are doing the same kind of thing with my web site Charlie. Kudos.

We are also in the spirit of turning a new page working on a seminar called “Life Vision Quest” that will be posted on my site. It is a major change in focus for us but still in line with our core WHY at SOSensible. ( We thrive on being able to serve others in creative solutions. )
