kingkeld's Journal, 07 February 2013

Good morning, Friends!

It's super early again, but I did get a pretty decent night's sleep. The night started early, and ended (too) early though.

Yesterday I konked out at around 7 pm - I suppose the last few days with almost no sleep did me in. So at 7 I had to give in and go to bed. I got 7 nice hours of sleep, and I feel pretty good, only slightly annoyed that I couldn't sleep until 4 am as I'm supposed to. I'd have liked the extra two hours of sleep. Oh, well.

So, I'm up early, got my morning coffee here at my desk, live music playing on youtube, and kitty cat sitting in my lab, purring up a storm! Not a bad way to start off the day.


Yesterday, I did great again. It was a kind of rough day though. I had some stress factors poking at me at work, but I managed to get through it with no real trouble. It wasn't really work related, and it wasn't anything that'll keep me up at night (but of course, lately it seem that I'm doing that perfectly fine anyways).

I managed to reach 1500+ on my 1600 RDI and this is great. I feel good physically, and I'm pretty sure that I'm both losing fat and gaining muscle.

I think I will do my weigh-in on Saturday, the morning of my Indulgence Day. I will be having my Indulgence Day, but I will probably avoid the sugars, to not make it harder on myself to get back to doing good on Sunday. We're having a guest over for dinner, and I have no idea what the plans are just yet, but we'll see. I'll have 3600 calories available to me, and without sugar and candies, this should be easier than anything.

Keyword is of course, "should". Let's see how it goes.

I feel pretty determined to do this right this time. I feel that I have a good grip on things, I'm planning my meals properly, and I'm ahead of myself when it comes to what and when I want to eat.

Today is a good example. It's 2:45 am and all I need to fill in on my food schedule is dinner. I have 700 calories space for it. No problem at all.

These days I find that my 2nd breakfast really helps me through the morning. This might be related to both the strange sleep patterns and of course the morning exercise three days a week.

I prep a little breakfast to bring to work, and I enjoy it at my desk while I typically go through my to-do list for the day, or some other light task - like browsing fatsecret. lol.

Today is Thursdays. The dreaded cake day at work. I know that Wife is gonna make awesome layer cakes. Oh, how good they are. And oh, how I can NOT dig into that. I know from so many other weeks before that once I start on that, I really don't wanna stop.

So today, I'm not gonna start. I have "scheduled" a banana for this time of day, and that's what I'm gonna stick to. That and maybe a diet soda if I feel like it.

I have a chance to go shop a little bit in the morning, as I have a plummer come and fix our faucets this morning. I will go to work super early, and basically wait for him to call. Then I'll RUN (literally) home and let him in to do his work, then shop for a soda on the way back. It's so nice to live almost next door to work. If I run home, I can be here in about three minutes. I'd say that's pretty good.

Dinner tonight? Not sure. We have quite a bit of leftover chicken from yesterday, so I think I'll suggest Wife that we do NOT cook, but simply have that. It'd suit me just fine. It's great tasting food, and there is no need to waste it.


Today, I'm thankful for:
- A good night's sleep. Finally. 7 hours is definitely satisfactory. Now I just gotta work on getting them at the right time. :)
- Morning coffee at 2 am.
- Kitty cat cheering me goodmorning and snuggling up with me.

Happy thursday! Life is good!

7 hours is a good start. It happens to me a lot. I go to bed early, thinking I'll get a bit more sleep then I wake up early, BEFORE the alarm. Stay away from the cake. I'd die if I had to see fresh homemade cake every Thursday!

Lol, Moose. The cake is do damn tempting - EVERY time. I'm usually good as long as I don't go for the first piece. If I am too hungry at the point of the day, I'll just stay away from the break altogether. Take a short walk or something instead.

Jealous you have a kitty cat snuggling up with you! Do you ever ask your wife to make a little cake for your indulgence days? Glad you got some Zs, have a great day!

Psylina, I generally don't ask for cake, because I know it's trouble. :) However, if SHE decides to make cake on Indulgence Day, then I might sneak a piece or two. Or three. And then I'm in trouble. - which is why I don't ask for it in the first place. lol.

I will send you a link for some protein bars that taste just like chocolate cake. You will feel like your cheating. :) I like to occasionally pair it with a protein shake so it's like cake and ice cream.

frosting and cake is my major downfall! you sound good, focused, and aware. I hope Hope you get the sleep thing going a little better, when my sleep cycle gets off balance, my cravings soar.
