I think there’s a very decent potential that I’m totally overthinking this shit. I spend so much of my time planning my meals for the day and tweaking snacks to try to hit that 80% fat target that it’s eating into my other daily activities. That’s both unsustainable and unhealthy in mental and emotional terms – physical health be damned.
As you’ll see, I still haven’t hit my percentages for today. No matter what way I rearranged my daily diet plan, I just couldn’t stomach the thought of adding more butter or oil of any iteration into any additional slots. It’s a fucking lot of fat in there already, man. But there are people doing the shit successfully, so I spent some more time googling with the added insights of the past five days, and discovered a fat bomb recipe (I’ll show you once I’ve successfully made it). I also got the collagen-based protein from Bulletproof (the egg-based protein is fine, and was cheap, but it’s not helping me in the ways I need it to right now).
With these adjustments, I feel confident that I’ll be able to get all the way to that 80% marker. But I feel like I’ve said similar shit in the past, so I guess we’ll see.
In other news, one of my regulars at the bar is both a personal trainer and professional dancer, and she had some great insights about my rib pain. She doesn’t think that it’s broken a bruised, but it’s more likely that I pulled a muscle in that area or displaced a rib, both of which can be solved with some purposeful stretching. I told her I already stretched 20 minutes a day and she smiled patronizingly and told me I should be doing at least 30 minutes given how often I exercise.
She also recommend that I start incorporating natural movement exercises into my weekly routines. I’ve been a longtime advocate for MovNat and I suppose it’s time I start putting my money where my mouth is, and roll around on the floor for a while.
