Thinking

213.8 again this morning. Which surprised me, actually. Thought I'd gain some weight in fluids due to being at the office and also all the additional exercise (which leads to craving more fluids/calories). I've updated my goal again to the "lose 2 pounds per week" setting (the highest you can set it to in the app, for good reason), because I've noticed during the weekdays I'm very good at playing "meet calorie goals" game, and a 2500 calorie buffer on weekends (to meet the 1 pound per week goal) should be plenty of buffer.

Thinking

Over the weekend, I:

  • went to Wayward Vegan Cafe Saturday morning
  • started browsing a machine learning course with my cousin
  • skipped the gym Sunday morning to have a proper rest day
  • walked to refill my bus card Saturday morning instead of going to gym
  • played quite a bit of Celeste
  • Read the majority of Your Money or Your Life

Nothing else of particular to note.

213.8 this morning. I have a feeling it'll be somewhere between 216 and 217 tomorrow morning though. I've updated my daily goal to be working towards 1.5 pounds lost per week. This is to actually have a goal of 1 pound lost per week, but build up a cheat day's worth of calories by Sunday each week.

As of the end of last night, I was 250 calories over per day on average for losing 1.5 pounds a week (aka was on track to lose 1 pound a week). Perfect. Going to be going for that every week.

Time to go to work.

Thinking

Been a while since I made some time to think.

Been weighing in at 218.6 in the morning. Not a great sign. Weigh 215.6 after bathroom shenanigans, though. Been slowly working on my diet, but also been really hungry since the 6.7-mile run to my therapist appointment back on Tuesday (was also sore up until today). Maybe it was a normal bump in weight gain due to the exercise.

We'll see. I still have the goal of being below 210 by the end of this month.

According to my calorie counting, I should be on-track for losing 1 pound a week. And to be fair, one pound a week since I started counting calories would only put me as low as 215.... Wow, been counting calories for 4 weeks. Didn't realize.

Actually, my averages over the last 4 weeks only put me at about a 80-calorie deficit per day. Which is 2240 calories burnt since the start of calorie counting, which is 0.64 pound. Which is actually pretty close to my tracked weight loss, if I trust these first-in-the-morning numbers (which I do, I think).

I just need to eat less. Simple as that.

I have some ideas on where to cut calories, as well. Just need to build the neural net habit for it. And this week I'm doing a pretty good job. The last 7 days I'm at a 500-calorie deficit per day as planned. There are certain packaged foods I like to eat that if I avoid I can keep my numbers where they need to be (I'm talking about Cliff builder's protein bars).

Another skipped log yesterday. Because I was sick last weekend, gave my wife both weekend days. We went to Wayward Coffeehouse and walked around the University of Washington campus a bit. Went and tried out the impossible whopper. It was pretty good. Might do that every once in a while going forward. Also, did a facial mask thing with my wife at the end of the day.

Yesterday, weight was 218.4, and this morning back to 215.6. I'll be back to more exercise starting tomorrow (I'll be running 5 miles to morning therapy appointment).

I had trouble falling asleep last night. I also went back to bed after alarm at 0500 this morning. Which was a bit frustrating for a variety of reasons. I have turned back on my phone 0505 alarm as a backup.

Helping my wife wake up at 0810 this morning. So working from home until then.

I have successfully woken up at 0500 again!

This morning's weigh-in was 215.6. I think I can be back on my way to losing weight. Should still be below 210 by the end of this month, and below 200 by the end of the year.

I'm back!

No backlog. It's not valuable. If future me is curious, he can read this log. I got sick starting Friday. I was recovering until yesterday, wherein I got in a normal day of work, but with my sleep schedule slightly off.

I beat Celeste thru the C-sides while sick.

I had some late fees on library books as I couldn't bother to return books whilst sick. I had to pay a whomping $0.50.

Whilst I was sick I was still losing weight, but after yesterday's "normal" day, I weighed in this morning at 218.6. Which makes sense, I was eating a lot of calories and not getting in much exercise.

Gym routine will return once I'm waking up at 0500 again (which is hopefully Sunday).

I have maintained no Twitter, even thru being sick. What really helped is that I have a list of webcomics that I abandoned in April of last year (when I quit reddit). Once Celeste no longer held sway, I simply brushed off Questionable Content, and started up where I left off.

I now have yesterday's comic linked in my wunderlist. And I can wait a year or so again before I start. I have a variety of comics I can read like this. This is a good use of webcomics, I think.

216.2 pounds this morning. 213.8 after bathroom shenanigans.

There was an event last night with a friend, so I ended up getting to sleep a bit late. 6.5 hours of sleep according to fitbit. Not sure how I feel about how inconsistent my sleep length is. I want it to be at least 7.5 hours per night most nights. Something to work towards.

6 pomodoros yesterday.... But with 2 meetings eating my time that's technically reasonable.

No gaming this morning, but I had considered it. Not sure if good or bad that I didn't. We'll see how I feel come tomorrow's thinking.

Time for gym.
