kingkeld's Journal, 08 February 2014

Good morning!

Well, another evening down the drain yesterday. I performed less than well, ate WAY too much, and today I feel terrible.

It's incredible how much food choices dictate your well-being, isn't it?

I made a great choice for lunch, and then it went to hell from there.

The result? Weight is up. Fat% is up. Abdominal fat is up. Everything that I'd like to see go down is up.

No more.

I really want to turn this ship around, and do well. It's not even all that hard, I just don't do it.

I blame the stress, obviously, and I am sure that IS where the fault lies. However, I am the one who can control it, and I am choosing to NOT control it.

No more.

Today, I am taking charge. It's Saturday, and I know that if I am not careful, then today will be ANOTHER bad food day and ANOTHER kilo gained.

No more.

I'm putting myself on a 2500 calorie restriction. It's nothing overwhelming - I don't need "overwhelming" right now - but enough that I'll be in a deficit if I do my general daily activities.

I will stick to my 2800-3000 daily calorie burn goal, and ensure that I move as much as I can.

I will make sure that "lazy days" where I move less than what would give a 2500 calorie burn, I will consume LESS calories, and thus remain in a calorie deficit.

It should be as simple as that. Hell, it IS as simple as that.

It's not anything I can't accomplish. I just gotta man up to it.


I did have a good day yesterday. I went to pick up Wife and we went out for lunch.

We went to a Shawarma house, and had the most amazing lunch. It was a great food choice, and I loved it.

I had grilled lamb and grilled chicken, with a salad with yoghurt dressing. I had hummus and a pita bread on the side. It was absolutely delish, and not all that bad on the calories.

It was the rest of the day that went down the drain.


Well, there's nothing I can do about the bad choices already done.

I can, however, do something about future choices.

I am starting to see my muscles being more pronounced. I feel stronger and I feel that I'm truly coming back after the gym break. I like that. I like feeling stronger and fitter.

I do NOT like feeling slouchy from the bad food choices. So they will have to change.

I will have to keep reminding myself that I feel horrible after messing up. It's not so much a mental "bad feel", but more a physical one.

Today I feel like crap, because of the food. There's just no point.


So, here's to a "new beginning".

The rules are simple:
- 2500 calorie max.
- Go with the "If It Fits Your Macros" rules. Enough protein. Enough fat.
- Eat between 11 Am and 7 PM.
- If I move less than a calorie burn of 2500 in a day, then I need to consume less than the calorie burn number, to REMAIN in a calorie deficit. This will make me focus a little more on moving, I hope.


Today, I'm thankful for:
- A quiet day with Wife. We're gonna go out for lunch as always (but it WILL be counted rigoriously!), take a nice walk and then relax.
- A reasonably good night's sleep. I think I was so tired that I finally just konked out.
- Wife. Love spending time with her.
- Morning coffee. The perfect breakfast for me. :)

Have a great weekend! Life is good!

Sounds like a good plan... Not to testing, but not lazy either. That lunch looked very tasty :-)

You are in control and making your routine a manageable one hopefully will help alleviate some of the stress. No more…! Get it done.

You have a great plan. Once you start eating better it will be easier for you to NOT eat badly. You will crave the more nutritious food. Make it a habit. You can do this ... one meal at a time.
