    And I've totally gotten into it! The characterisation is so much interesting. I LOVE Jon Snow in the book - he's bad ass. In the series he's an irritating, sniveling twerp. I don't know how fans of the book can tolerate him...

    Also so nice getting more history about the Targaryens. I actually feel sorry for Viserys now...
    This post made me so fricken happy! Too bad you watched the show first because now you have the charactors already created for you. IMO the show is a pathetic attempt at recreating these books and also some of the charactors are completely wrong. Gregor Clegon, Mance Rayder, Roose Bolton, Tyreon (although hes awesome still), are all complete let downs from the book. I also cant stand how the book gives such amazing details of the knights armor and certain castles and other things like the white walkers and the show completely drops the ball on these details. The show also completely skips over important details or changes parts completely. Mainly with Deanarys and most recently woth Theon and Rooses Bastard/Reek.

    They did get a few charactors right, Arya, The hound, Jamie and Daenarys for sure. And its just nice to be able to watch something even if its completely bastardized. And Tyreon completely makes it worth watching.

    Whew, ok enough bitching. You will love the books! The only problem is the last two wont be out for years, perhaps ever! Id have to kill myself if i cant finish the series.

    Ha - actually I prefer to watch the movie version of a book first! I feel that amazing literature will always be amazing, but a great film can be ruined by a good book! (I know: I'm an anomaly ) And I'm actually able to separate the book from the film in my head: all the character look different in my imagination to the actors. (not hugely surprising, considering my career: I have to be able to do that shit).

    I think Arya is a COMPLETE let down from teh book! SHe annoys the hell out of me in teh series... she's such a cliché. I used to love Tyrion, but his character isn't going anywhere anymore... But other characters (like Jamie) are devloping, so that keeps it interesting.

    Also - Ned Stark is only 35 in the book, wtf?! Wish they had chosen a younger actress for Kat - I hate that haggy woman and her old woman voice...

This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    Third Fad: Fuck the Fads

    Entry One: Starting Over (all over again)

    I keep applying protocols to "fix me" but the problem is that I'm compartmentalising symptoms without an overall picture. It's like tinkering with a car engine after driving blindfolded.

    It's another new chapter in the journal. This time, a fad is not the focus. The last thing I need is a framework for obsessiveness!

    This is about easing up.

    I am sure now that my body goes in a cycle of stress-insomnia-cravings-energy crashes-depression, but I have never taken time to just watch and observe it. I'm just going to observe the correlation between my energy, mood, food/hunger, sleep, temperature, fitness, body and stress. At times I will mix things up and see how I respond to control factors, like intense exercise, or calorie restriction, but for the most part I am going to stick to regular eating, gentle exercise, and meditation.

    Also, I'm easing up on my dietary restrictions. Right now I'm no gluten, no pufa, no legumes, very few vegetables, limited fruit... I just feel myself going down another rabbit hole. Over-thinking everything I eat, and limiting one thing makes me over-consume on another. Apart from my hair looking good, nothing seems to be working anyway. It makes me sad to think that this time last year I was 14lbs lighter, had no cellulite, and way fewer wrinkles. My cholesterol has gone from 6 to 10.4. I feel like I've aged five years in one. I'll stay gluten-free, as I'm pretty sure it gives me acne, and soy-free, as there's too much compelling information against it, but other than that I'm aiming for balance and an end to orthorexia.

    For yesterday:

    Sleep:
    12.30pm - 8.30am (or 9.30am - can't remember): 8/9 hours. Two huge sleeps in a row! Looks like my body really is exhausted.

    Temperature:
    No thermometer today.

    Energy and mood:
    Completely exhausted again. I spent most of the day dragging myself from downstairs to my sofa upstairs. Work and emails were a serious struggle. I couldn't even make my mum breakfast or help her cook. I read my book and mooched around.

    Felt pretty low that my energy was so shit.

    Body:
    From morning time, I was extremely bloated. Must have been what I ate the day before. OJ?
    Hair - Great
    Skin - A little less dry, but lines under eyes are definitely more pronounced
    Nails - Getting stronger.
    Lips - Unchapped.
    Keratosis pilaris: Slightly raised.
    Bit of a head cold.

    Food / Hunger / Cravings
    Quite hungry today.

    9am - Breakfast: Broth with two slices beef.
    11am - Snack: Banana
    2pm - Lunch: 150g paté, three tomatoes
    5pm - Snack: Banana
    7pm - Dinner: Tuna steak, cod, mash potato with bacon rinds, homemade BBQ sauce.
    1 square dark chocolate.
    1 litre Coconut water, two coffees, one raspberry tea.

    Cravings: Really craving wheat today! Majorly overate at dinner: had a small mountain of mash potato with BBQ sauce. Had some chocolate cravings too, but one square dark choc was enough. All cravings ended when I had a cup of raspberry tea with honey. Raspberry tea is really warming, and great for circulation. Was I craving thermic heat from food?

    Fitness:
    Did nothing.

    Stress:
    Nope.

    Final Thoughts:

    In keeping with the Fight Club theme:

    Nothing is stoic.
    Everything is falling apart.
    [...]
    Maybe self destruction is the answer.

    I am Joe's boiling point.

    In a slightly related note, I would be Edward Norton's anythang. I think it's the sad eyes.
