Grumble investigates a Murder on the Gastroport Limited

There's been a murder on the tracks! My weight loss has been cut down in a brutal attack of parties and sugar cravings.

So the obvious answer is to stop eating... Right?

Ok. Ok. bad idea. Maybe I could talk to the steward for some assistance?

Shit no. That bowtie just screams evil.

 

Alright, I guess I have to do this myself.

 

Fine.

 

Using Spell Slots

 

I have a finite number of calories I should be consuming in a day. 2312 to be exact. (I did like 8 TDEE calculators and that was the mean of all of them)

I'm pretty good at tracking, but not so good at tracking on time. I end up doing a lot of it at the end of the day. And while I have a pretty solid grasp on what most things will cost me, I still get sidetracked and miss some stuff or don't add everything in, especially with recipes, and my calorie totals end up being a lie. So my goal for this is to track my calories as they happen instead of grouped together and suddenly I'm 1500 calories over. I am including parties. So everything I eat will be tracked and once I am at cap I'm done whether I want to eat or not.

 

    Scuttle Buddy: @Taddea Zhaan has kindly offered to bug me and let me bug her to remind to track as appropriate, so I will be noting every time I get bugged after I have missed tracking as expected.

 

Getting Rid of Old Silverware

 

Continuing my Year of Clean, Mrs G and I have come to the conclusion that we don't schedule well. I'm kind of an impulsive cleaner, and I don't deal well with scheduling cleaning. She is the same way, but she can clean longer while I just clean bigger. What's been happening so far has been working, at least for me, and I am going to continue that path until something breaks. 

 

Bringing the Murderer to Justice

 

Things I am not good at. Following through. In an interesting note, doing a full year of these challenges has really helped me with that particular aspect of my life. But it's still got a ways to go. I do it with work, school, home projects, even video games and tv shows. These next 4 weeks I will be writing down things I need to do in my commonplace book and leaving reminders in my calendar to follow up on them.

I like the follow through goal - it's a good, strong overall goal.

seriously this. most days when I go over cals it's usually because I waited to track until I had eaten #toomanyfoods. You can bug me, we can bug each other, about tracking accurately.

It is a good goal. And the process works. I've just got a lifetime of bad habits to fix and a year hasn't even scratched the surface.

I did them specifically to get a middle ground.

I tracked like I was supposed to last night, and even with those epic nachos, I still came in under total cals. So the process works. And I'm totally down with the shared beetling. Er, bugging.

By the end of this year you'll at least have at least a basic understanding of the whole thing, if not getting all the inside jokes.

If it's not cutting anymore, shouldn't you be looking at what kinds of changed you need to make to your diet instead? :confused:

 

Pie doesn't seem like good fat-loss food... too much sugar.

“I've always believed that failure is non-existent. What is failure? You go to the end of the season, then you lose the Super Bowl. Is that failing? To most people, maybe. But when you're picking apart why you failed, and now you're learning from that, then is that really failing? I don't think so." - Kobe Bryant, 1978-2020. Rest in peace, great warrior.

Also me. (Full disclosure: I listened to the first episode of the podcast and liked it, but I'm not currently willing to give up my prime audiobook time to podcasts. I'm half a season behind on WTNV. Must binge soon.)

Well, given that I've already been *completely* suckered in to full immersion in The Order of the Stick and Runaways (shoutouts/sideyes/confetti, as appropriate, to @Laghail and @CourtnieMarie) I can't but imagine that I will wind up devoting brain cells to this as well. So many amazing nerdworlds, so little time!
