What I Ate Today #24

Good morning, all you beautiful Internet people out there. My bedhead and I are already thinking about our weigh-in tonight. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.


I decided to go with something different this morning. Oatmeal.


I saw the tofu in the back of the fridge, and decided I’d give it another shot.

Afternoon Fruit

What? More fruit? Yes!

Taking a Moment

I’m in the belly of the beast. It turns out there are very few options for coffee in Belconnen after 5:30pm. Max Brenner (in the mall), Oscar’s Bakery (on the UC campus), and Maccas. I took the path most travelled. I didn’t feel like going straight home after weigh-in. Not because I’m disappointed with the result (it’s not great, but it’s a loss, so I’m good with it), but just because I’ve been feeling out of sorts the last few days. Is hanging out in a mostly-deserted Maccas drinking something that is definitely not a Flat White likely to help? Probably not, but I’m willing to give it a shot. Writing is therapy.

So there are a couple of things going on with me. First, I just don’t feel particularly productive and organized. Which, you know, often doesn’t really bother me. But now it is. I want to be be more productive, and some days I am, but other days…not by a long shot. And it pisses me off. Not necessarily enough that I actually do something about it, but enough that I sit around brooding about it a lot. Not healthy.

And all that sitting around brooding and being unhappy with myself leads to the other thing that’s going on with me. I’m being unhappy with everybody around me, too. Mostly just the usual things, all of which may well be legitimate grievances, but I’m often letting them get to me more than I should, and I’m getting too deep into Grumpy Old Man mode, which isn’t pleasant for anybody to be around.

So instead of getting deeper into Grumpy Old Man mode to the point that nobody wants to be anywhere near me and I get so pissed off with the world (but mostly really with myself) that I decide to blow off doing all the Things That Work, I’m going to try doing some of the Things That Work to be more organized and productive.

I’m looking at my calendar, and the big things I’ve got on tomorrow are my hydro class in the morning, and then a meeting with my trainer in the early afternoon to talk to him about getting my fat ass into the gym. So I’m going to focus my efforts on Getting Shit Done in the morning between wake-up time and get-to-hydro trime. That’s three hours. So here’s the plan.

6:00am Wake up

6:05am Morning stretch

6:15am Meditation

6:25am Coffee

6:30am Read for pleasure

7:00am Wake Boy #3 for school

7:15am Iron school uniform, clothes for hydro

7:25am Order school lunch

7:30am Cook breakfast – omelette

8:00am Get dressed, packed for hydro

8:15am Leave for hydro

9:00am hydro

We’ll see how it all works out.
