I think I’ll just skip the Days’ Reports for the weekends. Most of the time is spent at work listening to podcasts, anyway.
I stayed in bed for about 8 minutes after my alarm. It took me that long to convince myself to not abandon my self-imposed schedule I hadn’t even attempted yet.
Got up, weighed myself (201.3lbs, 28% body fat) and measured my blood sugar (239, took two units of humalog.)
Very lights-on in bedroom, hoping that flooding myself with the blue-wavelength studio lighting I have would enhance my waking-up.
Sat at my computer. Wrote this. Checked my Hearthstone quests. Noticed my computer was chugging, tried disabling Runtime Broker to resolve this 100% CPU bug I’ve been tolerating seemingly forever.
Before I rebooted and stopped watching Hafu I heard her say:
I stream more when I’m unhappy … it’s therapeutic.
Other games I considered streaming today:
First time I’ve remembered to do the 15-minute countdown after tweeting the stream. Got the idea from SimCopter1, ages ago. Still seems to help, started the runs with 2 viewers instead of none.
First run was a Rogue on EU.
Someone I subbed to with Twitch Prime reminded me to give her my mailing address so I could get the dank swag she crafted for her first 10 subs. It was my idea for her to paint buttons for her subs, so I felt particularly good about her following up with me, even though my button was the last one she made.
I decide to keep a misplay counter on my notepad.
Five hours and two minutes. I really didn’t intend to go for this long, and I really just should not have. I think having 4 viewers got to me, but that spoiled the point of this experiment I think, which was to do much shorter streams every day.
I made 21 misplays that I noticed.
I don’t count bad judgment as misplays, I count thinks like playing the wrong card from hand when I intended to play something else, or counting inaccurately.
Gym sucked today. Lots of old assholes taking up all the benches while also taking phone calls. Bunch of chicks in the squat racks.
I pulled up my shorts extra-high so nobody would talk to me.
I didn’t miss any reps, though. I was really happy to get the shower in, I skipped it on Friday and was pretty rank. Needed to shave badly also.
The other thing I wanted to try today was fasting until the evening, and having all my calories (approximately 1700, for my fat loss deficit) basically right before bed, so I can sleep better.
Typically when I’m fasting I’m wide awake and more alert, and as soon as I eat I get sluggish and foggy-headed and want to sleep.
But I’d been getting such little/poor sleep since Thursday that the activity + lack of incoming nutrition = sleepyboi.
I intended to watch this minimally-intelligent show to fill time until I could eat, but I zonked after one episode.
I’m lethargic. I eat all my calories, which ends up being kind of difficult from a behavioral standpoint: I got full.
If I’m over on my caloric budget, it’s by fewer than 100 calories, and I’ll still be well into a deficit anyway.
