    The next step

    W0 D3 - Keep the engine running workout (strength) ✔ - We're losing pressure 1842 kcal, 162 g protein - little low, because I forgot to get my after-workout protein shake... Sigh. Scale bought, starting measurements. - Beware the material fatigue No screen after 9:30, went to bed at 10, chatted with wife, asleep around 11. I will try to update NF forum on my lunch break at work, so it won't absorb me in the evening. - This thing needs to move Not much time for the family. Ate dinner together, then I went to school to talk with principal about my younger kid's conflict in kindergarten. When I got back home, kids were already watching their share of evening cartoons (so I did my workout in this time). Gave them supper and put them to sleep. No avoiding though. Maybe because I had no time to relax.

I will try weighted backpack again, or maybe sandbag.

    When sport is fun is way better than competition level in my book. Given enough time, people tend to optimize fun out of everything. Enjoy the fun

    "Oh Chaplain, you ask if I heard of him? He's one of the greatest inventors of all time, just ask anyone who saw Mail Sorter and lived long enough to tell the tale. The idea to round up Pi to three while calculating it's gearbox is purely amazing." aramis reaches into his frock-coat inner pocket and pulls out matchbox containing a small figurine. "I even have exact replica of his Colossus of Ankh-Morpork. In exact scale!" he grins in enthusiasm. While aramis is distracted by conversation, the gaslamp extends six spider-like legs and tires to sneak off the table.

    Salinger's twenty third challenge!

    No, you are not. And even IF you are, you can change that. Remember who's the boss. YOU ARE. Don't freak out and all will be fine... we all believe in you

    One more cause of shin pain may be overstriding - making steps longer than usual.

    Hey Boss! As soon as I can get all my three meowers in one place, I'll send your cat and his/hers friend greetings from Poland. Sounds like therapy is working, it's great. From my experience (happily married for 15 years), in long term relationship the most important thing is to discuss things. Argues happen, but the issue needs to be calmly explained as soon as emotions tone down. We try to use my grandparents' method - never go to bed angry. Even if it takes half the night to explain and understand the issue, it's worth it. And about Domestic Rangering - my favorite book about sex life ("Guide To Getting On It" by Paul Joannides) states doing house chores unasked is one of best forms of foreplay man can do. Expressing emotions is hard, I know. But learning the way someone expresses theirs is also a process. It takes time and effort to learn each other. It's not always about constantly repeating "I love you". The same message is in saying "Drive safely", in asking "Have you eaten enough today?". As you said - it's not about Disney-type romance. It's about getting old together. To do so, one needs some "corporate merger" attitude as well, so don't beat yourself too much about it. You are on a good path, and you WILL get better.

    Battle Log: Eira vs stuff

    Have you heard of futo-maki? It's traditional XL version of most common hoso-maki (sushi rolled in algi). Maybe it was this.

    Donk! Donk! Donk! ... crackle... ... FIZZZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A cloud of pressurized steam shoots from behind the bar and disperses under the ceiling. Tall, skinny gentleman crawls from behind the counter. "Your espresso machine should be ok now. I added milk steamer, blender and mousetrap for your convenience" he tells barkeep while hiding his mallet. "Can I have my coffee now?" He nods at everybody muttering "laidies", "gentleman" as he goes to his table by the window, where he starts toying with a gaslamp.

    Great job! That is my weak point as well. Because of this, I am staying away from any sweets at all for 3 months now. But you show me eating a small treat is doable. I'll try to eat ONE skittle today. Fingers crossed on your Gummi Bear Test

    The next step

    Time to start this baby, let the fire burn! Week 0 Day 1 - Keep the engine running workout (strength) ✔ - We're losing pressure 1927 kcal, 191 g protein - Beware the material fatigue Failed on the first day - stayed too long on this forum writing those goals - This thing needs to move Didn't knew it will be my goal yet... I won't put here my daily menu or workout breakdown, as those things are already tracked on my Battle Log. No need to be redundant. W0 D2 - Keep the engine running workout (running) ✔ - We're losing pressure 1927 kcal, 187 g protein I plan on buying inexpensive digital scale (the one I use now is older than my and my wife age combined) to weight myself daily and get... say... 7-day rolling average... or 5-day... Bah, I'll think about data sample when I get one. The idea is not to get one measurement a week, but introduce a method of recognizing a trend. In long-term process this should work better than simple measurements. - Beware the material fatigue Ugh, I did it again. I spend way too much time here. - This thing needs to move No research yet, but I followed ElastiGirl's advice and instead of just flopping on the couch, I tried to get some energy from just moving around. Not sure if it worked, but it felt better than just collapsing and avoiding everybody.

    June 25th: Nutrition: Breakfast - none Lunch - chicken stew, grilled veggies (cauliflower, broccoli, carrot frozen mix) - 696kcal, 98g protein Dinner - fried sausage, cucumber and tomato salad, sugarless churros, scoop of banana ice-cream - 591kcal, 34g protein Shake - protein powder on water - 120kcal, 23 protein Supper -quark with white mulberries - 460kcal, 29g protein Drinks - black coffee, water. Morning coffee with 100ml whole milk - 60kcal, 3g protein Total 1927kcal, 187g protein. After some consideration, I decided to widen my protein target to somewhere around 170-190g, which is high end of safe spectrum (76kg x 2,5 g/kg = 190g). Workout (running): ~5km, 31 min. - 3min marching warmup, 8x (1,5min jog, 2min walk), 2min cooldown. Stretching afterwards. Music with proper beat and interval timer app are really making this way more fun than before
  15. To be honest, I wouldn't be either. Maybe try to organize your time to give her similar amount of "off kid" time as you get. Maybe then she will look kinder on your gym trips.
