Diane, 8:54 PM. I feel great today. I think I'm still eating too much, but it seems my diet today has been pretty healthy. The problem is that I'm not getting enough sleep because I have to do a lot of essays to my college. In fact, tomorrow I should finish one of them and I'm going to sleep and put my alarm clock at 3:00 AM to do it at night (my day tomorrow ends at 2 PM, 'cause I have to work after lunch), so I'm going to be a zombie. I hope not to eat too much during this night.

An amount of food that Cronometer tracks as 1000 Kcal (really?). Don't know the quantities, but: roasted tuna (1 portion), 4 crab croquettes, spanish cheese (about 75 grams), some salad and a portion of whiskey cake (yeah, a birthday), and a coffee with milk, as usual.

Working on draw a plan to success on my life goals. I feel very comfortable with the Pomodoro Technique, so I've started planning some tasks and looking how it works. I've determined two main fields: my M.Phil. degree and stoicism (I've called this one 'NF' as I plan sharing this with you). That's what it looks like.

 

Usually I spend at the library 3 hours in the morning and 4-5 in the afternoon/evening. So, if they add up to 8 hours I think I can divide them into:

 

  • 3 hours writing 'All But Thesis'
  • 3 hours working on my M.Phil. Thesis (I think can divide my dissertation into 9 pomodoros easily)
  • 2 hours writing about stoicism

 

Nevertheless, I would like to grade this aspect focusing on objectives more than in time spent working. The 'NF' aspect is easy: I can write a 'long' post every week as a minimum. 'All But Thesis' is easy too, as I've my deadlines next 21st of july, but... BUT (a big one) - I have almost two months to write the MPhil thesis on a difficult area (I'm doing something interdisciplinary) and I have to think more about it.

 

At least I think I have enough work for now. This, plus doing my 3 workouts every week, plus running the other 3-4 days is a good point to start. I should do something with my diet, too, but I'll think about it on my next break. Now is time to come back to the work!

I got it.
 
Now: 76.7 kg (169.2 lb) and 34 % BF
Goal: 73 kg (161 lb) and 30 % BF (deadline: September 7th)
Pro: 70 kg (154 lb) and 28 % BF
 
I think I could achieve it on the next challenge with a sustainable diet. What is a sustainable diet? A diet designed with portions of macros of 100 Kcal each one. The plan would be the following: 22 portions for workout days, 19 non-workout days. I'm not counting green vegetables, which are 'unlimited' (= salad, gazpacho, whatever). Distribution:

If I've calculated well my needs, I should lose between 0.5 and 1 kg each week (2 pounds, I think).

Running

   kilometers   |  minutes   |   mins/km      4.46          30:00         6:43              

It's being hard breaking the 5K wall and/or being able to run more than 35-40 minutes. I would like to be able to run about an hour or 10K by the end of August, but I don't know if it's possible. I think it's enough having two new habits (running, lifting) and persevere with them, and the next challenge I should focus on losing weight through diet and maintaining this two achievements.

 

I realized that BORES me A LOT stretching after running, so I don't. And I know I should, or the next year I won't be able to stand up of my chair. So a possibility for the next challenge is: #1 tracking my calorie/macros intake with the PRO/FAT/CHO system, #2 keeping training 6 days a week, focusing in what can I achieve lifting weights, and #3 stretching after running sessions. Plus a life goal which could be manage a balance between #4.1 Stoicism (here), #4.2 finishing the M. Phil. Thesis (a must) and #4.3 managing the libraries of NLTK (via reading this book), which would be very useful for #4.2. Currently thinking on it.

I am able to start the conventional military press training with the barbell. F*CK YEAH. I must deload on barbell row (so I could focus on techique) and pretty well on deadlift, I think I have some sesions until the 'valley'.

I'm trying to discover the best and easiest way to keep a food log, and also a log of the rest of my goals during this challenge (I've done pretty well tracking my workouts on the past, so it isn't a problem). I need to know what I'm eating in order to know if I am succeeding or not.

It seems that I've eaten much more than the amount of Kcal that the log indicates. I don't know if it is due to the mostly primal sources, but I think I could have eaten less than I've done.

I found your post due to a random search on "stoicism" as I am a fan and like to see where folks are talking about it in random places (like this board). So, Natural Language Processing with Python? Fun book. My undergraduate research project involved using the NLTK to mine PubMed articles. Small world! I'm working on my PhD in Comp Sci in computational theory (specifically focusing on quantum computing, but seriously need to narrow down a real dissertation topic as I've taken most of my coursework). What are you doing with the NLTK in your M. Phil.?
