I did that all of last summer. Ran at 6 am outside to beat the heat. Then I got a gym membership this year and became a wimp. Love me some air con.

That's our overnight low temperature here in the summer months. Weather.com underreports our area, because the tourism industry demands it. All the locals who are interested in anything beyond "it's just plain fucking hot outside" keeps their own little weather monitoring station out on their patios.

According to mine, it's currently 05:54 and 97 degrees (36.1C) with 71% humidity. Relatively cool night/morning, with today's forecasted high (according to weather.com) at 111 - so it'll probably hit 116-120 today. This is why I stopped doing my runs and other assorted heavy workouts when I moved out here last summer and lost a bunch of muscle tone, so I can't exactly blame you there.

C'mon, people pay good money to sit in saunas, stop complaining!

But the issue isn't sitting outside in ridiculous heat and humidity, it's adding to the wetness via sweat.

(Boy, that just looks wrong, doesn't it? :P)

Isn't sweating the point of saunas?

Sure, but sitting exerts little effort while sweating, while working out exerts too much effort. :P I avoid those like the plague, if I want to be hot and sweaty, I'll just go outside.

I finally got my fitness up to where I can do the 30 minute fat burn setting on the exercise bike without feeling like I am going to die afterwards. If I can go from once a day to twice that's 320~ calories right there.

It's just as well I do this at home because it's impossible to look dignified when overweight and sweaty!

I would rather sweat from a workout than sweat just from SITTING because it's so damn hot out. That being said, I'm not much of a sweater to begin with so I tend to find it extra uncomfortable when I'm not actually doing something physical.

Does anyone have any personal rules for carbs? I have cut out the obvious foods but I am wondering if there are any rules of thumb that are doing the rounds (maybe comparing carbs to protein?) so I can refine my diet a little further. I am averaging about 2lbs a week lost at the moment which is quite healthy but I would love to up that to 3lbs a week during summer while I have the energy.

While it will depend on how much you weigh, I thought that losing anything more than 2 pounds a week was considered "risky". More in the sense that it won't be sustainable because you're cutting too many calories. If you mess up your metabolism by cutting too many calories per week, your body, when you hit your goal weight, will be so used to the reduced calories that you won't be able to go back to a normal healthy amount of calories per day.

Other than that, I have no rules for carbs versus anything else I eat so I'm of no use there I'm afraid.

On that note, I'm happy to report in that the change in diet has, so far, netted me a weight loss of 4 lbs since last Sunday. A bit more than is healthy, but I imagine that'll start to slow a bit. I'm pretty much eating when I want, so long as it stays within the guidelines I've set for myself.

I miss rice. A lot. :(

Are some of your restrictions based on the PCOS stuff? Just curious.

Nope! Just doing a switch up to see what works and what doesn't - so far, this is working.
