I slept well. Woke up at six. I'm hungry, but not any moreso than any other morning.
No hangover whatsoever. No headache. No stomachache.
Loose, as expected. Not much there. Dunno if I'm still processing my last meal, or if this is truly a product of only beer.
To Do Today
I have to workout in a few hours. I've decided to hold off on drinking my first beer of the day until after the workout. At some point I will have to drink a few before I exercise, if only to see what happens, but today I'm going to play it safe.
Our bathroom is being remodeled, and I need to do some minor fix-up stuff. Will have to squeeze that in.
Must write! If I don't get 3000 words done today I'm in trouble.
Weird to not have to floss.
I'm really unhappy with my double chin. I hate to shave, mostly because it's a pain in the ass, but if I shaved every day I bet I never would have allowed myself to get this fat. I'm not vain in the least, but since I lost my beard I don't recognize that obese guy in the mirror.
Watching video of myself in my underwear is something I should have done years ago. Seeing yourself in the mirror isn't the same as seeing yourself on a monitor. It may sound ridiculous, but I really didn't believe I was this heavy until I started this diet and saw the pictures.
It was about a year ago when I realized I fit better in 2XL shirts rather than the XL I'd been wearing for the last decade. Back in 2002 I wore L. Now, looking at my closet, I've got so many shirts I haven't worn in years, or even decades. I think it might be fun to try some on now, shoot some video, and see how they'll fit at the end of the diet.
On Thursday I'm going to visit the Three Floyds brewery. They're one of my favorite brewers, and it will fun to talk to the brewmasters about beer. Back in the day, before my writing career took over my life, I used to homebrew. Like all new brewers, I started with extracts, but later graduated to full grain and mashing my own barley. I still have a fridge in the basement with some moldy old cornelius kegs in it. Might be fun to brew again after all these years.
There seem to be a lot of people who are concerned for my health. Is what I'm doing really that dangerous? Fat is stored energy. That's why we have it. If I'm not getting enough sustenance my body will burn fat to keep me going. Isn't that how it is supposed to work?
Gotta get ready for my workout. More later today...
