The Third Skirmish: A Minor Melee on the Muddy Moor of Malaise, to Meliorate Moribund Morale I am recovering not only from a slug phase, but from critical morale failure. It seems that every time I get a smallish routine going, a slug phase interrupts and I have to start from zero. I had hoped that pacing and keto could help me avoid these crashes, but no. This time I contributed to my own fatigue by attempting to cut calories and do intermittent fasting at the same time, possibly as a stress reaction to food fights. This was ill-advised. It also led to me bingeing on sugar. Now I have to get through sugar withdrawals and cope with backlash eating on top of everything else. My mind has cleared a little in the past couple of days, and I'm eager to return to lifting. But I'm not back to full capacity. So here are our tactics for the melee. Axe of Strength: quit sugar (again) since it makes me tired, depressed, and causes mindless madness eating no calorie restriction verrry low volume lifting walks on non lifting days Staff of Clarity: stay off the distractinet in the mornings Sword of Courage: right now I need courage just for lifting so... pack my gym back the night before and just "go for a walk" in the direction of the gym on gym days. I have bought some new gym clothes, and they are pink. This is curiously enspiriting. Reflective Shield: start developing a daily spiritual practice and reconnect with a relevant goddess.
