Weekly summary:
Weighed in at 69.2 this morning. I've had fluctuations over the last couple of weeks because I've been inconsistent and binging, and it's been moving between 69 and 72. I'm going to record it here with my weekly progress so that I can track it more consistently and see how I'm progressing.

Today's successes:
- Worked ~8hrs
- Stuck to keto
- Tracked macros
- Stayed under
- Wrote in journal

Today's failures:
- Stayed up late

Weekly succeses:
- Worked over 30 hrs (most I've worked doing the uber eats ever, I believe)
- Worked >8hrs in one day, twice (also a record)
- Lost weight (can't say how much but it's definitely been trending down)
- Stuck to keto all week
- Tracked macros basically all week

Weekly failures:
- Went to bed too late for most of the week
- Have put little/no effort into dating for the week

Score for the week: 8/10
- Did a lot to get myself back on the horse from my xmas/new year slippage
- Worked more than ever before (which was what I needed)
- Definitely room for more productivity though

Most important things I can do next week:
- Work a lot again, at least 30 hours (40 hours would be ideal)
- Stick to my workouts
- Stick to keto and macros
- Get my sleep schedule in order (in bed at 11pm, up at 7:30am)

Most important thing I can do tomorrow:
- Do my workout (even if I feel tired)

- Worked out and put up the weight on my deadlifts (even though I felt pretty tired going into it)
- Stuck to keto
- Tracked macros
- Stayed under
- Fairly early night tonight
- Wrote in journal

Today's failures:

Most important thing I can do tomorrow:
- Read 2 more chapters of the slight edge

Took a rest day today, which I needed after a big weekend of working and a very taxing workout yesterday. Not sure how to balance productivity on days off - I was barely productive at all today, but maybe that was the right choice. I'll have to figure that out.

Today's successes:
- Stuck to keto
- Tracked macros
- Stayed under
- Fairly early night tonight
- Read 2 chapters of the slight edge
- Wrote in journal
- Got up early

Today's failures:
- I'm sure there's ways I could've spent my time to be more productive (i.e. reading, watching informational videos etc.)

Most important thing I can do tomorrow:
- Work out
+ Work at least 4 hrs (8 hrs would be ideal)

Today's successes:
- Worked out (pushed very hard on my squats today too, which I'm very pleased about)

- Worked ~1hr
- Stuck to keto
- Tracked macros
- Stayed under

Today's failures
- Could've gone to bed earlier (but then again I don't think I mind having some later nights on the weekend and sleeping in)

- Spent a lot of time watching videos for entertainment which I could've used more productively

Most important thing I can do tomorrow:
- Finish prep for work
+ Read 1 chapter of the slight edge

Today's successes:
- Read 1 chapter of the slight edge
- Worked ~3hrs (not nearly as much as I would've liked, but I was on the verge of sleeping at that point)
- Stuck to keto
- Tracked macros
- Stayed under

Today's failures:
- Probably could've taken a nap and kept working
- Wasn't sure how to be productive outside of working

Most important thing I can do tomorrow:
- Do a workout after my work shift, and don't push too hard

This week I weighed in at 68.9. Not sure why the weight's not going down, but I've dropped my kj limit from 5500 to 5000, so we'll see how we go next week.

This week's successes:
- Read a bunch
- Got a job
- Stuck to keto and stayed under macros
- Lost 0.3kg
- Wrote in my journal every night
- Much better sleep schedule
- Did all my workouts and pushed the limits of what I thought I was capable of

This week's failures:
- Lots of wasted time
- Didn't work nearly as much as I would've liked
- Didn't lose as much weight as I would've liked
- Probably pushed myself a bit too hard working out for how much my energy intake is (I think that's why I've been so tired today)

Most important things I can do next week:
- Write a list of the activities I can do at home that will further my goals instead of watching videos
- Work a lot (ideally 30-40hrs), but maybe don't work so hard and pace myself a bit more
- Do all my workouts, but don't work out excessively hard
- Wake up each day at 7:30 and be in bed by 11pm

Hey!

A suggestion totally out from left field...

Don't call your daily / weekly "failures" failures.

failure is not negative in of itself, so if you keep associating them with something that's going wrong, or that you didn't do, you'll start view every failure as something bad, when in actuality it should be a learning experience

A good point, but what do I call them if not failures?

I honestly don't know, but I guess something simple like "Things I did / things I didn't do today" would be good enough?

I agree with @ThePhoenix, but I sure hope you sincerely mean what you say Phoenix. Listen to what you're saying right now. Because that's the stuff you definitely need to repeat over and over again especially in your journey.
