Lately, I've been working to re-examine my goals, more importantly, what is important to me, and how my goals and values are connected. My objective is to break this habit I have of comparing myself now to the me of 2017. I was on a really great... Read more
Heavy Day
Tuesday, February 18, 2020      5 comments

I was really debating on tracking my weight this week. I decided to do it anyways because I'd rather have the inflated number appear than to have no record at all. I know the number is inflated because I weighed myself at the end of the day, r... Read more

The past week was very hard for me. My schedule was super out of whack, so I hardly made it to the gym. Since I couldn't do that, I focused on restricting what I ate most of the days. I figured, if I wasn't moving as much, I don't need as many c... Read more
Yesterday's Eating (Short Entry)
Tuesday, February 04, 2020      1 comments

Ha! I'm laughing at myself today. Yesterday, I accidently brought only kale, half a sweet potato, and half a regular potato with my lunch. So, I essentially fasted all day until I got home. When I got home, I was STARVING and ate a lot of food. ... Read more
Doing More with Less
Wednesday, January 29, 2020      3 comments

The past week or so, I've seen a trend emerge: reducing the resources I consume, I end up with a better result. I'm currently working to reduce how much I'm spending and how much I eat. The second is obviously conductive of the first. The redu... Read more
Pushing / Lifting

I'm getting back on the ball. I'm becoming more mindful of what I eat, I'm doing my best to remain positive, I'm re-envisioning what success means for me, etc. I looked back on the food that I tracked back in late 2016 and early 2017 to see w... Read more
[Ignore. Just anxiety-driven rantings]
Tuesday, January 14, 2020      2 comments

My anxiety is high today. My girlfriend had found some of my old postings on a social media site, from when we were dating last. I had approached the relationship differently last time. I never expected it to last, because she is this awesome wo... Read more
"I want to be able to wrap my arms around you again"
Monday, January 13, 2020      3 comments

I haven't been sharing many of my private moments lately, but I want to share one that hit me particularly hard. Due to my memory lately, I wanted to write it down before I forget. I visited my (new-again) girlfriend about two weekends ago (Ne... Read more
The Envelope Budgeting Method... For Calories
Monday, January 13, 2020      2 comments

I've recently been smacked in the face with the news that "Hey, Matt! You are spending too much!", so I've been looking to tame the spending beast. I recognize that I'm spending too much. The first step I took was to simply... well, try not to s... Read more
How Would I Treat Myself as a Professional Athlete?
Friday, January 03, 2020      0 comments

Today's SparkCoach Visualization is to "imagine that you are a professional athlete and need to keep your body and mind in peak shape." Today, someone had brought chocolates and cheese dips into work. I know that if I were a professional athl... Read more
Ineffective Patterns
Friday, December 27, 2019      2 comments

I'm finding that I'm following some ineffective patterns. I want to say "bad patterns", but they aren't inherently bad. They are just not 100% what I need at the moment. Except not tracking. That really is a bad pattern. One of my biggest offe... Read more
Frustrated / Lost Vision
Sunday, December 01, 2019      6 comments

I'm having a hard time finding my Why lately. I thought my Why was to be more attractive to women. Now that women are finding me attractive (surprisingly, the old adage was true, in that they like me for my personality and physique is just a bon... Read more
Weight Spike
Monday, November 04, 2019      8 comments

I'm frustrated greatly. Between Wednesday and Thursday last week, my weight spiked 5 pounds. I thought it was water weight, but it hasn't disappeared. I need to get my tail back on track. I re-realized today that one of my issues is the lack of ... Read more
I'm Not Old Matt, Even When I Don't Do Well
Monday, October 28, 2019      6 comments

I'm frustrated. I cannot seem to get my weekend eating right, and it often bleeds into Monday. This weekend was particularly bad. My eating was so out of control that I felt ashamed to even try to track it mentally, let alone in SparkPeople, so ... Read more
Reforming Hunger
Wednesday, October 23, 2019      4 comments

One of the biggest issues lately is eating, both when hungry and not hungry. When I'm hungry, I'm really hungry and I'll gorge. The problem is less that I'm waiting too long, but rather I believe that my body is feeling hungry on a timer, but al... Read more
