I’ve had a sore stomach since Sunday.  I though it was just all the beans I’ve been eating but something else is going on.  Uncomfortable and prolific gas for more than a day.  Kept me up last night.  Not sure what it is, probably a low-level bug of some sort.  Not debilitating, but something to watch.  Isn’t impacting my work or training.

As the wise men said; “This too shall pass.”

Saw some progress this morning.  Dipped under 180.  I would expect this to be a pretty big week given the longer workouts I have.

The more important thing is that I have fully established new patterns.  I’m not even thinking about ‘diet’ anymore.  I’m just eating what I have prepared and enjoying it.  One of the self-improvement tropes is that it takes 21 days to burn in new habits.  I don’t know what the real number is but speaking from experience I can attest to that being close.

It’s part of the process for new habits.  Especially those habits that are lifestyle based.  Human systems tend to be elastic.  There is always a natural pull to snap back to an existing state.  What you need to do is hold the habit long enough that a new state, a new stasis, is achieved.

Getting better,

Chris,
