Up To Snuff

I need to get back up to snuff on everything. Aside from re-arranging my day-to-day baggage after the trip (bags and pockets, etc), I've got to get healthy again.

I've had nearly a full week of cheating on my diet, so first thing's first: detox. I plan to achieve this by going back to the diet full-on as if I hadn't missed a beat. Might even throw in some intermittent fasting to help me get back into ketosis faster. Getting some MCT oil tomorrow to help, too.

As for other health issues, I've been pounding back water like mad, which I should do anyway, especially now that it's finally getting hot out. I brought my glass litre bottle and a full reusable plastic bottle to work so I could drink it like a challenge. About to finish it off with a half-hour before the end of my shift.

Lastly, my detox needs to include finally getting back on my hormone stabilizers (I have an estrogen dominance, and the pills I take help me metabolize it).

Now I just have to figure out how I can make it to the gym and back on Charles's unhelpful schedule. Might have to switch to night-time workouts (thank goodness for a 24-hour gym). Also want to work in more than one day a week at the skating rink.

According to my scale, Toronto put 6 pounds on me. Which just goes to show that you can't eat like crap and expect walking miles and miles every day will cancel it out.

I never forget how easy it is to put on weight. Ryu doesnt seem to get it. He seemed confused that I still couldn't eat a full meal even after walking around for 9 hours.

Right? I have one cheat meal and I gain 5 pounds! Terrible! Maybe I should get my thyroid checked out. Can't hurt, at least.

Does that make a difference?

Sometimes, though I'm pretty sure it's more to do with bloating afterwards, so it's probably (hopefully) mostly water retention. Stupid necessary water ;)
