Not much to report from yesterday. Hit all my targets. Listened to more Can't Hurt Me at the gym and on my walks. Yesterday's Daily Stoic was a good reminder to not use inconvenient events as an excuse to go off my plan. When I couldn't sleep in the past, I'd often take the excuse for a "one-off" midnight snack to help me sleep. But I have trouble sleeping often enough that it becomes much more than a one-off. And it's no excuse anyway.

Oddly, I haven't felt any strong temptation to play games since stopping before New Years. Right now I'm excited about my goals so it's easy to not game. And I've got some good books to read which scratch a similar itch to games.

Pretty normal day yesterday. Hit all my targets. I bought an Anti-Nail-Biting pen off Amazon after I saw someone mention it in another log. I can't remember whose log it was. Anyway, it's great. I unconsciously went to bite my nails twice throughout the day and each time got surprised by the bitter taste from the stuff I'd put on my nails. And it doesn't smell or make my fingertips sticky. The only downside I've had so far is that once I got some food residue on my finger and went to lick my finger clean without thinking of it and got a blast of bitterness along with the food taste. So I definitely won't use this when I'm eating finger food. It seems to last even after I wash my hands, which is nice so I don't have to constantly reapply it throughout the day.

I gotten very few matches on the dating apps this week. Might just be one of those slow weeks.

I'm pretty proud of yesterday. I slept like crap Wednesday night. The restless leg syndrome acted up and woke me up twice, then I couldn't get back to sleep after the second time. Probably got 3 or 4 hours of sleep.

But I didn't use that as an excuse. I had a big 3-hour presentation at work that I nailed, then still went to the gym after work. I was really tempted to skip squats, and the gym was crowded which meant that I had to wait for a squat rack to open up. Perfect excuse to skip them along with the fatigue from low sleep. But I waited for one to open up and did them anyway. Then went home, ate dinner, did my 10K steps, and stretched. And swiped through the dating apps before getting ready for bed.

Yesterday's Daily Stoic entry reminded me of this forum. Andy and Radical consistently encourage guys not to spend time complaining or worrying about things that they can't control. Not using anything outside of their control as an excuse to not take action. But to focus on the things we can control and crush those things. Guys who do that - and never fucking give up - are the ones who find success.

Friday was an off day for me. I had another big presentation at work and after I was done, decided to relax by eating food and watching TV. Went way over my calorie limit for the day. Still not a binge - I didn't eat whatever I wanted and didn't go until I was almost sick like I have in times past - but I want to avoid days like that in the future. Fridays are often tough, especially if I don't have something social planned. The best solution, of course, is to have a date or something else social planned. I will try to do that, but also need a backup plan for Fridays spent alone so I don't use circumstances as an excuse. Still got all my steps, stretched, swiped, and went to bed at a decent hour.

Pretty solid day. Had an hour call with my friend. Told him about my giving up Video games and he was extremely supportive of that. Then got a haircut, went to the gym, and got groceries right after. Cooked some food, though I still have some more to cook today. Went to a swing dance in the evening. Super fun. I always enjoy that and it's good for extra exercise. Ate some low-calorie ice cream when I got home which put me a little bit over calories.

I'm happy with my exercise habits this week. Just need to keep the calories down. They were good all through the week. Friday and Saturday were the two off days. Just need to have a battle plan for weekends where my habitual mindset is "it's the weekend, time to indulge"

It's definitely been a big one for me. It fed into other bad habits like eating too much or staying up late.

Met up with @DavidStone in Philly to take some pics and walk around the city. It was cold as fuck out there, but we took a lot of pictures and it was good to meet another KYIL guy in person.

The rest of the day was pretty lazy after that. I got the rest of my steps, did some stretching, swiping. Set up a date for Monday night (but unfortunately she cancelled day-of). Cooked most of my food for the week so I'm ready to go out and crush it.

Contacted an online personal trainer on Instagram yesterday. Told him my goals - losing fat till I have visible abs which should be 10-12 % bodyfat - and where I think my struggles are. I told him what I'm currently doing to lose fat and he seems to understand that I'm not a total beginner with fitness. I'm doing a lot of things right, but diet consistency (at least from my perspective) is what holds me back. Though I'm open to any changes he wants to make to my workout plans.

Also went to my doctor for a checkup since I haven't been there in a year. All my bloodwork was good. Blood pressure and pulse are healthy. Resting pulse is higher than it was last time I visited. It was 61 bpm this time. Last time it was in the high 40s. Probably because I haven't been doing jiu-jitsu and have just been strength training + walking as my exercise. Once I get these damn warts sorted out and get back to training consistently, my cardio will get much better.

Had a girl from Hinge cancel the date last night, so I just did some more walking and checked out my finances to see what I'm willing to spend on coaching this year.

Dumb bitch cancelling. Oh well. Cutting does suck but you do look good. So the good outweighs the bad. You trying to cut to 150?

Probably. I'm 166 right now. I'll see how I'm looking in another 10 lbs and keep cutting from there if necessary

Off day yesterday. I was hungry and low on energy throughout the day and ate a lot more than usual. Still got exercise, but wasted a lot of time watching TV in the evening. Even though I ate a lot, it was mostly good stuff. The only somewhat junk-y food was a pint of low-calorie ice cream (400 cals total). The rest was all chicken, vegetables, fruit, greek yogurt. Still got to sleep on time.

Bounced back after Tuesday's off day. Fasted until 6:00 PM so it was easy to keep calories low. Actually had to eat a little extra to get enough protein. Hit the gym after work (and before eating) and got a good workout in while listening to a Joe Rogan/David Goggins interview. Having Goggins in your ear helps to push a little harder in the gym. Got my steps in after dinner and got to bed early since I had a call with the new online trainer scheduled for 8:00 Thursday morning.
