Perfecting My Eating Disorder

It's past midnight right now. I know that by the time I publish this, Blogger will say it's still Sunday, but that's because it thinks I live on the West Coast. All my settings say Central Time Zone. There's a note right now at the bottom of my screen that reads, "Draft saved at 12:42 AM." But no. It's all a lie. I know that when I hit 'PUBLISH POST' my blog post will transport back in time two hours. Such is its way.

Speaking of time travel, I watched Meet the Robinsons with my son today. I highly recommend it.

So, back to my masochism blog. I made it pretty close to my goals for the day on food intake, thanks in part to staying up late Saturday and napping a lot today. It's easy to eat less when you're sleeping. However, it also means I didn't do P90X. I'm still debating whether to try to do it in these early morning hours, but I don't know if I can handle it. My calves are really sore from "Legs and Back," and "Kenpo" looks like it requires functioning legs. After my fail on "Yoga" I'm a little more hesitant to work out when I feel this sore. Doing an hour tomorrow would be better than doing twenty minutes today, right? Tomorrow is supposed to be my rest day, so I could just call today my day of rest...

In addition to an accounting of my food for the day, I will also include a meal plan for my food for tomorrow. I'd like to start cooking the night before and putting my food into five small, convenient plastic storage containers. Wouldn't that be cute! I don't really see how I could achieve Zone/P90X/Slow Carb perfection without such a routine.

  • 1 package of 20 wasabi seaweed sheets
  • almond milk/stevia/rice protein
