Day’s Report – August 7, 2017

Aug 8, 2017 | | Say something

I think I’ll just skip the Days’ Reports for the weekends. Most of the time is spent at work listening to podcasts, anyway.

20:32 – 23:52 = Asleep

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.

00:15 = Active Procrastination

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:

  • Shadow of the Colossus
  • Secret of Mana
  • Super Metroid
  • Fallout New Vegas
  • GTA: San Andreas
  • Binding of Isaac
  • Don’t Starve Together
  • Persona 5
  • MXM

02:38 = Stream Begins

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.

07:40 = Stream Ends

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.

08:28 – 09:32 = StrongLifts

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.

10:16 – 11:50 = Star vs the Forces of Evil

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.

11:54 – 20:25 = Sleep

20:30 – 24:00 = Eating and Starring

I’m lethargic. I eat all my calories, which ends up being kind of difficult from a behavioral standpoint: I got full.

  • 2 eggs and some steak, leftovers from roommate’s breakfast I was allowed to finish.
  • 1 package of Knorr noodle sides
  • 2 scoops ON Casein
  • 2 scoops of ice cream

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.
