kingkeld's Journal, 12 November 2013

Good day!

It's late for me to be writing a journal entry, but I figured I ought to do it.

This morning was crazy hectic.

Not only work, but I had an added stress factor of my brand new phone completely dying on me, and me not immediately being able to get it up and running. My phone is an essential tool in my everyday doings, and I REALLY hate being without it.

No calorie counting. No communicating. No anything. Boo.

Fortunately, I think I have figured out how to fix it, but I can't do it until I am home tonight, and there is no certainty that it'll work.

Stress is a b**tch. :/

Today, I have TOTAL FOCUS on NOT letting the stress getting me into an eating frenzy. So far, so good. I have stuck 100% to plan. The plan says I will end up at 770 calories. 107g of protein, 35g of carbs, and 27% of my calories coming from fat. the 27% SHOULD be at least 30%, but hey - it's not bad at all. I'll manage this.


I weighed in 1.2 kilos lighter than yesterday. The gained fluids are slowly coming off again. I hate that I keep losing the same weight, but I am glad that it at least comes off easily. Too bad I also gain it easily. LOL.


Today, it's raining. Hard. Actually, it's raining so hard that I have water coming down the walls on the INSIDE of my office. Not good.

Obviously, I have not been walking a whole lot today. I hope this clears up for tomorrow, as today is 100% shot. There's nothing much I can do about it.

I don't really need the physical exercise from the walk - it's much much more of a mental thing. I might just get on my bike at home and spend 30 minutes there, but if I don't I won't beat myself up over it. Being on the bike might burn a few calories for me, but nothing in the big picture, and I am super low today regardless. Also, it doesn't fix my low step count that I will have today.

Let's see whether I feel like doing it. I probably don't. :)

I'm a gazillian steps ahead of plan, so there is no real damage from skipping a day, it's much more the mental thing of skipping BY PRINCIPLE that I am opposing here. I hate not following my plans.


When I realized that the rain was pouring down this morning, I gave myself an extra hour of sleep. Boy, did I need it! I gotta say that I feel great and very rested today. I like it.

Of course, there is still panic and stress at work, and I'm dealing with this one step at a time. I think I'm getting some things worked out, but it's a long haul. It will probably be like this until I go on sick leave for my surgery.


Honestly - I can not wait for my surgery. Not necessarily to have it done, but for the recovery and the Christmas break afterwards.

It's a FULL MONTH where I won't go to work. I will be home with Wife, and enjoy it. I need to just completely let down my guards and just relax, and recover. I am SO tired these days.


Today, I will stick to plan. I'm doing well, and it's all good.


Today, I'm thankful for:
- Wife
- Sleep
- Rain - I think it actually served me well to NOT go walk.

Life is good!

Morning Keld, rain inside your office, running down the walls? Wow, that's some rain. We are bitter cold here -4, guess that's not bitter yet but add a wind child and its brrr. Glad you are on top of things and I'm sorry you are both still so stressed. It's so hard to lose weight at the best of times, almost impossible with this much stress. You need a lot of support at this time. So keep on keeping on, working your plan, becoming the best you that you can. Surgery will be here soon enough then some much needed time off work, to continue to work on you. Big hugs big guy.

Yeh... sounds like a crummy day all around. I'm with you on that. Work is already frantic. Anyway, I wouldn't stress the bike issue. Skip it, relax a bit with the wife and be in a better place tomorrow.

Heh, tomorrow's gonna be equally bad. As is Thursday and the rest of the week. Nothing much that I can do about it. I do take the control that I need in regards to my food. I did excellent - EXCELLENT - today. I will tomorrow too. Food wise, tomorrow is pretty easy, as I am working literally ALL day and will be preoccupied with that.
