Woke up late, which derailed my entire day. I keep under-estimating how important it is to maintain a true circadian sleep rhythm.
It's a vicious cycle that goes somewhat like this: First you stay a little late to watch a mindless reality TV with oompa loompa coloured bachelors chasing oompa loompa coloured bachelorettes on a hot, sandy beach. Then you can't sleep. Then you make some popped DEVIL FOOD* and you watch the latest TV abominations (though, the Brits have been doing some quality work lately, with Utopia and Afterlife, and Orphan Black and Black Mirror [if you have trouble staying away from pig PUFAs, the pilot episode should keep it under control at least a few days...]). Then you can't sleep at all. Then you wake up at 2pm. Then you feel like crap. Then you go to sleep even later. Soon enough you're weeks behind on your exercises... You get terrible insomnia, you get fatter and fatter, and you keep eating DEATH**, and you can't keep a steady job. You turn to drugs, prostitution. You even consider joining a gang and becoming a killer for hire. Then one day, you look yourself in the mirror and you think, "Is it all worth it?" and you know what happens next. They find your body 3 weeks later, with your eyeballs missing (you have cats btw, so that should explain it.)
Just DON'T DO IT. Don't go to sleep late. It's not worth it.
*I've replaced DEVIL FOOD with corn, for your Primal convenience here.
**I've replaced the word DEATH for PUFA fried food here.
Eating window: 3pm-11pm. <-- THIS FAILED. More like: 3pm-4am eating window.
Ate popcorn yesterday which I'm paying for with sluggishness and brain fog.
Ate potatoes, an egg, a piece of bacon sauteed in butter. Had a cup of coffee.
Chicken soup with gizzards, hearts and livers, pork tendons and snow fungus.
A 70% Aero Chocolate bar as a snack.
Pilaf and 2 fried eggs as midnight snack...
Energy: 2,280 Cals.

Carbs: 209.0 g

Holy Macros...! My micronutrients are definitely out of whack. The snacking and hunger doesn't happen when I sleep adequately!
Walked for an hour and a half.
It has improved dramatically when I finally threw out an entire keg's-worth of makeup and skin care
and replaced it with a few great products from Paula's Choice. My pores are smaller, my blackheads have diminished, my face is no longer red and my skin tone is even. I swear the annoying fine line under my eye (yes, just the one) is gone.
>>Would attach a picture but that requires a lot of cellphone-to-laptop maneuvering which I'm too lazy to do.
Note, I wear SPF ALL OVER out of fear of melting into a puddle of Ukrainian goo, and this regular, in-shade, pre-noon lounging has already earned me some freckles and pinkness on the shoulders. Someone needs to patent summer-time winter clothing for people like me.
Coffee, Salt, Sugar, Cocoa: Yes. 70% Aero bar and a glass of Lipton Pure Leaf. I also use Lo Salt for my salt and it has 65% Potassium and 35% Sodium.
Magnesium: Forgot today. Only about 250mg from food.
Potassium: A good amount! 3,000mg.
Calcium: Augh...! Not getting enough. 300mg. I need to supplement. I 'stay away from dairy' purely out of habit. Now that I've limited the usual suspects I tolerate dairy a lot better.
Sun + 5,000IU.
Cool. Now DANCE!
