Although I did start to learn about Nietzsche's idea of the Übermensch and come up with the idea of finding Ü a few years ago. I believe that this was my first Instagram posting related to my Ü system.  I'll probably dig up the older posts and write about them in the future.

Simply put, finding Ü is all about me finding the better Me. I even came up with a catch phrase of "Becoming the best you by finding your Ü".  Now I am using technology to monitor the progress and give me a score!

jimmydnetCheck out my "Hey dummy drink more water" hydration reminder system! Of course I had to geek it out. I found a good deal on two #hidratespark smart water bottles. One for my desk and one for my EDC Office Gym Bag. Both provide extensive data logging PLUS I am working on integrating this data with the data from my other devices. Along with that I picked up this tiny fridge for around $35. It holds four 500 ml water bottles and it makes sure I always have a cold one ready. Last but not least I grabbed this "Drink more water" sticker from Redbubble to gently remind me of my goal

Workplace Napping

Some might think that sleeping on the job is a sign of laziness, but quite a few progressive companies are starting to encourage employees to take mid-day naps to recharge. This post on Why You Should Let Your Employees Nap at Work reminded me of an earlier post about how I have been experimenting with The Science of the Über Napping.

Self Promotion - Have Permission

I was reading this post and I really liked the idea of having permission from the people that you are engaging with when doing Self Promotion . It reminded me of SPAM. People delete SPAM. No one likes SPAM.

Blueberry and pine needle tea

My buddy John hooked me up with some fresh blueberries the other day and the first thing that came to my mind was, "I've got to make some blueberry and pine needle tea with these". The first time I tried pine needle tea was at a Buddhist temple a few year back and it knocked my socks off but I'm not fully convinced the need for this type of tea was a cosmic calling.

Low Carb Egg Fast: Jimmy D's First Periscope broadcast

If you haven't heard, Periscope is the new Twitter app that lets you send live broadcasts from your phone. Sure, there are other apps that are jockeying for the top position in this new method of delivery in the social media game but periscope caught my attention. With that in mind, I am going to use Periscope to document my Egg Fast journey.

Anyways, I am in the process of kicking a stall that I was having in my weight-loss goals. Ok, I have to be honest. It was more of me slipping than stalling but lets not focus on that. As with everything there are people that are pro and against this process. All I can tell you is that so far it has worked. I'm not done. I am going to adjust my exercise and  ride it until I see myself at my original goal weight. Then I have to transition back into my normal Keto/LC lifestyle. Martina over at Keto Diet Blog has an in depth post about the science and process behind the egg fast.

So here it is, Jimmy D's Morning Breakfast with the Low-Carb Egg Fast!

Low Carb, Egg Fast, Dieet

Wii Fit Hack: Budget Digital Scale

You can pick up used Wii Fit balance boards at thrift stores or flea markets super cheap. Matter of fact, my daughter and I we're at a thrift shop today and saw a stack of them for a couple bucks a piece.

I knew that these connected to the Wii via Bluetooth, which happens to be a standardized connection feature in many devices now a days, and it made me wonder if they were hacked yet? I love repurposing everything, especially electronics, so I quickly did a Google search and discovered that they have a new life as intelligent digital scales.

The folks over at Apartment Therapy did a pretty good job of explaining how to connect your Wii Fit balance board to your Android device and track your weight. The process is simple. Just download the free application and pair the Wii Fit Board and you are ready to roll.
