Tip: Taco salad bar at the Holiday Inn for LAPW meeting lunch. I made a huge and delicious salad by taking all the fillings (less cheese) - and topping with the balsamic vinegar I had brought along myself. It was not a challenge at all to bypass the shells and refried beans (although I do love me some refried beans!) and I didn't feel the least bit deprived.

IF: Back at it. Would've gone all day but for the LAPW meeting. Hungry (and cold) just before meeting, quite cold again at 430. Good timing!

Sleep: In bed 8 hours. At least half hour before falling asleep. Woke at 215 for b/r, then woke often after that. Here I thought I'd sleep really well being back in my own bed. Damn!

Body: During class warm-up, felt awfully stiff & sore. Very seriously considered skipping yoga in favor of a nap, but felt better after lunch, found some energy. Or got some from the caffeine. Either way.

Brain: Did not want to return to real life at all. But coping!

WOD: Commitment. Today this means: I intend to make a solid commitment to the next four weeks. No more excuses, no more "Well, I didn't sleep well, so I'll eat a little extra." If I don't sleep well, I'll drink more water and/or back down on workouts, but I will not eat more. I have thousands of calories stored in my fat cells; use them up, body! I am also making a commitment to consistency in meal sizes/macros so that I can get a better grip on how I feel in relation to workouts, etc. If my food varies wildly, then so does my training fuel, and how then can I judge whether the problem with deadlifts or pullups or a simple run is my fuel or my technique or my plan or the heat or whatever? Control as many variables as possible.

Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply. They're either speaking or preparing to speak. They're filtering everything through their own paradigms, reading their autobiography into other people's lives.
-Stephen Covey
