I have truly overdid it this weekend. I would be embarrassed to tell you of the junk I have eaten over the past couple of days. Sure, it’s my Off Cycle, but I have pushed it to the point of sickness, and that can’t be healthy.
In spite of my gluttonous weekend escapades, the program is working. I dropped another five pounds over the week. I’m at 240 now. Yes, my friends, that’s 60 pounds lost. This shit works, simple as that. Tomorrow I cycle back on, and I can’t wait because I always feel great when fasting. Sometimes I have a post-weekend hangover for the first morning, but it fades quickly. Before long my energy rises, and I feel great.
I think I got all the kinks worked out of my GTD (Getting Things Done) system. I’m basically using Google Drive and Docs for everything. I’m using the INBOX folder as the funnel of my GTD workflow. I have the Drive app. on my phone set to upload scans to this folder, and I have a web clipper Chrome extension that does the same thing. I do a weekly review where I process everything from my email, Drive InBox, and physical documents. I also review my current and future projects, and my Possibilities (Someday-Maybe) folder at this time. For a task manager I am using TickTick (search Google Play), which is a very minimalist system. For my calendar I’m just using Google Calender, which is more than adequate
Maybe on the next post I’ll unpack how I use Google Sheets to manage my projects. It’s a very simple system, which is exactly the way I want it. Complexity is the mother of Doesn’t-Get-Done.
Ok friends, I’m going to hit the sack. I have agreed to go in early to work tomorrow. Much love and happiness to you all.
I know what you’re thinking… “There’s no way he has a drivers license. He’s just seven years old!”
We made it to the weekend, friends! Tomorrow is a new day, and a new opportunity to experience life in all it’s wonder. And, it’s Saturday. In my case that means a day when I can do what I want to do. It means a day when I can focus on self and family care. It is a day to recharge and recalibrate for the week to come. It is my favorite day of the week.
Tomorrow I am going to focus on getting my GTD system refined and more functional. Denice and I are also going to (finally) get our Christmas tree and decorations put up. I’ll get some photos of everything when we’re done.
I’m a little late getting to the laptop tonight. It’s been a busy day. Denice and I had rehearsal for the Church Christmas program. We just got back from that. So, it’s late. I’ll make this short but very sweet.
We did Christmas diner at work today. They always have Thanksgiving and Christmas meals catered. It’s was awesome. Some of the best banana pudding that I’ve had. I made an exception to my Slow Carb protocol so that I could enjoy this meal with my coworkers. I hold social things like this to be more important than being perfect with my endeavors. However, I am going to pay for it. I am stretching my fasting period to about thirty hours through tonight and tomorrow. I’m hoping this will compensate for indulging in such decadent food on my On Cycle.
I’ve been listening to CGP Grey’s review of ‘Getting Things Done.’ I’ve had this book for years, and have a very rudimentary GTD system in place. I don’t use it very well though. I’m going to spend this weekend trying to improve my process.
Good night, my friends.
