kingkeld's Journal, 02 October 2013

Good morning.

Today will just a be a short little blurp.

I'm heading out the door in about 20 minutes - at 5:45 AM, and I won't be home again until 9 PM tonight. It's a day with MANY thing going on.

It's not all that busy, just many different tasks.

1. My one hour walk.
2. Gym.
3. Work - it's a good, interesting day. We're gonna visit a major factory in the area and see how they do things. I'm looking forward to this. It - of course - includes lunch. I hate included lunches, as many of you know. It also includes breakfast, but I will simply skip that.
4. Work at the gym.

Essentially, the "included lunch" might be all the food I will have time for today. I need to make sure I play my cards right.


Yesterday went to crap again. Stress is really affecting me, and I hate it. I dug into the protein bars at work, and cookies at home. I probably went over by about 1000 calories. I have a calculated deficit of 500, so it's really only about 500 over, and that's not too big a worry, but it seems to happen day after day, and this is where it gets bad.

With the many extra carbs from the cookies (and the food in general), comes the excess water weight too. So, today I am up two full kilos. :/

Well, today is another day. Let's see what happens.

At least I am away from my work place and won't have to explain the whole situation about Wife and her work over and over again. I think it's a nice "day off".

Tomorrow will be more of the same. It will be a day where the whole work place goes out for other activities, classes, etc.

Again, it'll be amazingly good food that will be hard to control/calculate. Sigh.

Still, I'm in reasonably good spirit, and determined to push through. Sometimes it's hard to be strong for more than one person, though, and right now this is my task.


Today, I'm thankful for:
- Getting up and getting going.
- Wife.
- Morning coffee.
- Gym. I need to burn some energy. It'll help me control the stress.

Life is good!

Celery stalks. I chew them when I cant find other ways to replace that stress related chewing instinct. Just a suggestion.

It's very hard to be strong for more than one person. It's the story of my life, and the hits just keep on coming. The stress will resolve, things will get better. Keep your chin up, and stay away from cookies (delicious little bastards!). You will walk away from this unscathed. You know what to eat and what not to eat at lunch today, so stop letting the opportunity to overdo it freak you out. Leave your stress in the gym :-) Pep up!

Bella, celery sticks are no good. Once I get in that mode, sugar works - nothing else. I think for me the thing is really not as much "eating something" as it is "shoot sugar straight into my veins if needed, and it's needed now!". I know what I need to do to do right. The fine art of it is to APPLY it. I hope it makes sense. I truly appreciate it, though. For many people, this is a great solution. Once I am in "that mode", there is no chance I will ever think of celery sticks. LOL.

Yolanda, I appreciate it. You're right. It's hard to be strong for two. Today I pretty much aced the lunch. There was TONS of opportunities to eat crap, but I went for protein rich meats and little else. I was full, satisfied and spent 780 calories. My RDI is 2500, and the rest of my food plan is less than 300 calories, so I am golden. If anything, I'll have a protein shake to up my protein intake to support my training. Also, I did knock the stress out of me at the gym. Hardest workout ever. I upped the weight on yet another machine, so I have literally never lifted as heavy and hard as I did today. Life is good!

That is a long, healthy day. Thanks for reminding me that there actually ARE enough hours in the day to include fitness...we just have to ADD them in!

Today has been a great day. It was a super interesting visit to the factory, workout was great, and I have walked much more than I usually do. Life is good!
