Weight vs Strength Tradeoff

I haven’t checked my body fat, and I should start tracking that not my weight.

I’m eating healthy for the most part during the weekdays. My weight has been stuck at 193 for over a week now and I’m getting stronger… And I think I’m getting slimmer.

I really wanted to lose a bit more but we shall see what happens. I don’t want to eat less and I don’t have time in morning for more cardio.

I keep making excuses but I need to do some sort of cardio in evenings. I’m thinking maybe swimming twice a week?

I need to take lessons anyways, might be a win win.

Choices – eating healthy

I want to hit 185 pounds. I started at 205 on March 25th ish. I was doing very well, got down to 191ish about a week ago. But last little while I have been going out a lot. So I’ll have to watch what I eat.

I am going out for next three weekends too and it’s unavoidable. I should probably just do salads. Maybe step up my game during the week to make up for the excess.

Some of these are actually pretty cool.

1 was disable Trace / Track.

2. Shutdown FTP Server

3. Put you db on a different sever

4. Disable PHP eval functuon

5. Turn of mail server

6. SSL V3

7. Don’t support .htaccess files
Most of these I need, like the mail, and the ftp and even trace. But eval not so much. Moving the db to a different sever sounds a little intense.

monitor the memory usage of unix server

“To monitor the memory usage of unix server, you can log in and run the ‘top’ command at the command line.  Hit q to quit the program

 On the Swap line, if the free value approaches zero, the system is seriously running out of RAM.  Another symptom is the load average (on the top line) hits 5 or more.  The load average is the number of processes ready and waiting to run over short/medium/long time spans.

If you see the load average creeping up and there is no real reason, run ‘service httpd restart’ and then we will have to tweak the settings some more.”

How Doctors Die

Almost all medical professionals have seen what we call “futile care” being performed on people. That’s when doctors bring the cutting edge of technology to bear on a grievously ill person near the end of life. The patient will get cut open, perforated with tubes, hooked up to machines, and assaulted with drugs. All of this occurs in the Intensive Care Unit at a cost of tens of thousands of dollars a day. What it buys is misery we would not inflict on a terrorist. I cannot count the number of times fellow physicians have told me, in words that vary only slightly, “Promise me if you find me like this that you’ll kill me.” They mean it. Some medical personnel wear medallions stamped “NO CODE” to tell physicians not to perform CPR on them. I have even seen it as a tattoo...

The article goes on to explain why the doctors at times “enable” decision makers to choose to attempt to save a loved ones life — although they may not want the same for themselves.

It’s actually a great read and not that long.
