My apologies for the slow updates of the log this week. My roommate just moved out and the cable bill was in his name, so I'm currently without internet from my house until they can reinstall it. Pain in the balls.

Anyway, I got sick this week and ended up taking off Friday. Felt pretty drained towards the end of the week but got a ton of rest on Friday and am feeling a bit better now. I just need to get some more sleep on a consistent basis. It's amazing because I feel like I know plenty of people that get less than 6 hours of sleep per night and are fine. But if I get 6 hours of sleep every night for a week, I'm pretty much guaranteed to get sick. Whatever, it is what it is.

Big Diet Change

I'm going to make the most drastic nutrition change that I have in over a year, and there's a few reasons.

My mind is still more preoccupied with food than I'd like, and I find myself getting more annoyed with food prep than I have since I first started carb cycling. Having food take this much mental energy is annoying and consuming in a way that I'd really prefer it weren't. It's still residual stuff from the bodybuilding prep, not doubt.

As my schedule has gotten busier and busier, I find that I resent the prep more and and more. So I'm going to try a program called "Five Squares". Basically, they deliver meals to your door every day in a cooler (I'll have them brought to my gym) with 3 meals and 2 snacks. I'm going to try this just during the week to start, where I'll make my own first meal of the day and probably supplement with shakes during the snack meals, since it's intended for people who are trying to lose bodyfat. It's nice, they don't charge for double protein portions. :-)

So while this may not be as ideal as carb cycling, I'm going to give it a go and see what happens. On my lifting days, I'll probably have a breakfast with more carbs and on the cardio days, I'll make one with less. I can even have them do some days that are lower in carbs than others.

If this averages out to freeing up an hour a day when spread across grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning pots and pans, packing meals, etc then it'll be worth it.

I'm starting Monday, so we'll see what happens.
