One week in

Image
Well, clearly blogging every day is just not in the cards, at least not for now. That's okay. I have been tracking my calories every day this week and I have learned a couple of things. First, let's look at some numbers:

Sunday: 1865
Monday: 1887
Tuesday: 2134
Wednesday: 1660
Thursday: 1724
Friday: 2192

This is probably the best week I've had food wise, in a very long time.

What did I discover:
- eating regularly causes you to be hungry.
- eating regularly gives you energy
- eating regularly helps you sleep

I have felt really good this week. Generally had much more energy than usual, though yesterday and today I was exhausted. I have been sleeping like a baby. And I have just generally felt really good. Amazing what a little food will do for you.

On Sunday I will talk with my coach again and start working on hitting some targets. I really like how this is going, so I will be happy to follow it through.

Closing the day

I have to get into the habit of closing out the day. I need to make sure that I log all my food every day and I would like to take 10 minutes and recap the day here. So here goes.

Crossfit this morning was brutal but I went. Food was pretty good. I had my Progenex protein powder in my coffee and what a jolt that gave me. I didn't eat food until lunch when we went to Kona Brewery after a Costco run. Then I took a nap and prepped for the week. Egg casserole made and cold brew coffee brewing. I'm going to have a scoop of Progenex in my coffee in the morning and in some cold brew coffee in the afternoon. I always get tired around 2-3, so this should pick me up. Plus if I'm going to Crossfit it will give me something to work off.

I realize now that I just do not eat enough food. I have days where I stuff myself, but most days I fall far short of what I should be eating. I'm working with a coach at Crossfit and we are working on that. For this week, I am just to track eve…

Ending the day

Today went pretty well. I went to Crossfit and did the partner WOD this morning, that was fun. Then I had Subway for lunch; worked on my assignment; walked the dogs; and had dinner. When I left to walk the dogs I realized I was starving. I had Subway at noon and it was 5 pm when I walked the dogs. No snacks, no junk food, and I survived. Wow, what a concept. I did get my assignment done so that made for a very successful day. I did not get my prospectus done and that bums me out. I have a pretty full day tomorrow, but I have to find some time to read and write. I just have to do it. I just have to find the time and fit it all in. I guess that means getting up early in the morning and trying to get something done before I start my day. Which means I should get my butt to bed now so that I can get up in the morning.
