    I just started poking around this place.

Your account is 307 days old. You are probably the most patient lurker I ever saw. :)

How's your world?

Haha. I just made an account when I first checked Hubski out, forgot about it the next day, and then saw another post on Reddit that reminded me of it again.

My world is busy lately. Projects at work, taking the GRE (which I haven't studied for yet) in a week and a half, relationship woes, and I have an almost two year old. And I decided to start cutting weight, so I am hungry all the time on top of everything else. But overall, things are pretty good in my world. I feel challenged, which is kind of a nice feeling sometimes, as long as you take care of yourself too.

Wow. You'll fit well in with half the other people here on Hubski on that alone. A lot of the users here are productive, go getter types. It's fun to see what people are up to in Pubski, people always got things going on.

How's the weight cutting going for you? You doing any activities to go along with it?

Weight lifting. Right now I'm doing a program called 5/3/1 boring but big. I've been lifting for about a year and am a whole lot stronger now, which is really confidence boosting. I look somewhat different too. But I've never really been lean, you know? I want to see what I look like if I diet down to having abs. I realized at some point that all the muscular looking people you see are first and foremost lean, with some amount of muscle. If you're not lean, you don't really stand out as strong looking unless you're REALLY strong, which I am not yet.

But cutting while lifting weights sucks. Everything is harder, and you stop gaining strength. I think it's even affecting my moods and giving me random aches and pains, which I guess makes sense because not eating enough screws with your hormone production.
