Small shop, 20MJ.

Well, this was a pretty poor few days. I’ve been feeling stressed by some work stuff: basically, fighting a big uphill battle against a pile of stuff that needed rewriting and touched things all over the place, and particularly rushed because other people are also working on the same code base and I’ve had to redo parts of it more than once as they completed their own work.

Happily that’s done with for now (unless something comes up tomorrow) so no more comfort-food for a little while, and back to the… discomfort food? I’m not clear what “comfort-food” is really contrasting with. Why isn’t all food comfortable?

So I somehow managed to eat four cheat meals in three days. And by “somehow” I mean I literally did that, and was aware I was doing it, but did it anyway. That’s how that word is used, right?

Side-note: I always regret getting takeaway ramen. It’s much better eaten-in.

It’s not as bad as it looks, as I really didn’t eat much else in those three days, so I’m not super-far over the 7000kj per day average, assuming my cheat-meal allowance is roughly correct.

Anyway, a small shop today, and so I’ll be trying to get “back on the horse”, in the allegorical but not euphemistic sense.

Sadly, not small enough to let me land on April 1st for my next shop, but that’s okay. I will try and remember to weigh in though, and we’ll see what three months has wrought.

  1. Yeah true about the ramen! It’s not that bad as far as takeaway/’comfort’ food goes in my opinion 🙂 Hopefully work stuff will ease, busy periods always seem to require a bit more high energy food for stamina, and wear down willpower for keeping to a plan. One thing at a time! Hope you can set aside some good Paul time and reset a bit soon.
