kingkeld's Journal, 06 January 2014

Good morning!

My numbers are pretty much back to what they were Saturday morning. It's much more expected than the BRILLIANT weigh-in yesterday.

It's okay, though, I feel like I am doing good.

The numbers are really no different, and there isn't all that much to comment on. It seems like my averages are still going slightly in the wrong direction, but I think it's still just numbers adjusting after surgery.

The surgery bumped my weight down to a chunk below 80, gave me a ridiculously low body fat percentage (down to 7!), and this is what makes my numbers keep looking "bad".

They are, of course, not bad at all. Draglist posted a chart the other day, in regards to body fat, and I am already in the "athletic" category, close to what they call "only the essential fat". I don't want to end up there, just think it'd be nice to be under 10. :)

It might end up being an unsustainable place to be, I'm not sure. If I can stay a little higher, but consistently, then that's just as good. It's not all that important.

Still, that doesn't mean that I can't try, right?


I was supposed to go back to work today. I'm not, though.

I have appointments at the hospital for my heart thing several days this week, and I can tell that I am stressing over it.

The flyers that I got in the letter from the hospital explains it all pretty well, and supposedly there isn't all that much to worry about, but it is the whole "stepping into the unknown" that I don't like. I don't know what's gonna happen, and that makes me uncertain.

It's just something that has to be done so I can move on.

Supposedly there shouldn't be much more to it. I hope this is true - I want to get back in my usual routine, and get moving on living healthy, building business, getting back in top shape.


So, today my focus will be on doing right and taking care of myself. I will ensure that I reach my goal of 3000 calories burned, and that I am mentally relaxed. I truly can tell that the whole hospital thing is bothering me today. Maybe because it's suddenly THIS week? I don't know.

Sometimes these things get a LOT scarier when they're up close, right?


One thing I do have to be careful with today is the eating patterns. I know that when I stress, then I want to eat.

I have an allowance of 2500 calories today. I can easily fit proper meals into it, and I can easily do good. I just have to not get into bad foods.

I'll manage.


Today, I'm thankful for:
- A good night's sleep. I'm thankful that the stress didn't kill my sleep.
- Morning coffee!
- Wife!
- Getting the damn heart thing done and overwith this week. I want to move on!

Life is good!

No point in saying not to worry, I would be worried too. Hugs.

Draglist - Rehearsal went well! I could tell I got tired faster than usual, still healing and all, and the relatively heavy lifting of the bass all afternoon, but we did good. We got the rough outline of a new song done. Original material this time. We're talking about heading in that direction. :)

I'd be stressed too - only natural. Wishing you only the best and will send a prayer your way.

Your comment about stepping into the unknown made me think of this song: Stress is normal under the circumstances, but you've got good doctors, right? Put it in their hands...
