Raw fruit & veg allergy, checking in. And chicken & turkey. And tree nuts. And avocado, a bit.

Just feed me potatoes. Let me have potatoes. Food is pain, potatoes are not.

Well, technically potatoes are poisonous, but youd need to eat an abnormally large amount before it affects you.

Potatoes, gotta love that rather non-lethal relative of Deadly Nightshade. So long as you don't eat the actual plant you should be fairly okay.

I intended to work on making some sort of roguelike and writing a story/the beginning of one this summer. I have been and are procrastinating them to a discouraging point. I am wasting my summer.

Also, none of my attempts at conversation (save two) have lasted more than a few seconds.

I somehow lost the ability to do 20 pushups easily in the last few days.

Guess I gotta do more pushups. Dunno what happened. Maybe 3 days of rest was too much?

First, there are off-days. You cannot guarantee that you'll have exactly linear progress due to the hundreds of variables at play when working out.

Second, you might even be pushing too hard. 3 days sounds like it should be fine, but if that's the first rest at the end of a long period of over-stressing the muscles then you might be just hitting the downtime of your body attempting to repair itself.


Progress is measured in average over time, not specifics day-by-day.

Yeah you can't really grind physical improvement. The idea is to make it steady and sure, not fast growth in spurts.

Unless you're bleeding from the eyes, it's not real exercise /j

Take some rest days each week, will help prevent overtraining.

As long as I can do 50 in 2 minutes by September it's fine. I'm getting a pair of hand weights this week. Thinking 30lbs, but normal exercise stuff for the weights, but keep doing GtG pushups in addition. That should help, and I'm going to keep it at like 2-3 rest days a week.

The training guide I've got for the tough mudder works on two on-days and one off-day (Which doesn't mean *no* exercise, just something gentle like yoga at most). Could try something like that. Your body needs time to rest and recuperate, rebuild glycogen stores, etc. etc.

Also chocolate milk. It has been found that's it's pretty much the perfect immediate post-exercise drink. It's got fats and proteins which help repair and build muscle, carbs which regenerate the glycogen stores, and the sugar in it releases all kinds of general feel-good neurotransmitters. Just don't go chugging huge amounts of it, or that'll just make you fat.

I had an awesome dream to post about, but now I can't remember it!

I also can't seem to control my emotional reaction to things. Sometimes I just start crying if something minor upsets me, and I can't seem to control it.

If you're on a short fuse for emotional breaks, consider how stressed you are, how much is on your plate. Oftentimes, there might be some situation that's floating overhead and keeping you tightly wound until it resolves. If it's something you can resolve immediately, do so. If it's something that will only come in the future, do everything you can now and let the matter rest until the time comes. Being stressed about things you can't affect is not productive; at some point you should admit "I've done everything I can" and be proud about that.

And don't forget that you shouldn't "control" your emotions; if you feel upset, simply note that as a fact instead of trying to suppress it, and let the feeling itself be.  Emotions are never "wrong", but their causes might be. Consider why you're feeling the emotion, and whether you can do something about that cause. If it's another person, you could start by honestly admitting to them how they're making you feel (perhaps later in private, if the concurrent situation doesn't allow it).

Emotional intelligence is a difficult thing to learn, but it's one of the most useful skills you can have when it comes to happiness. There are courses and learning material for it, but in the end it falls to you to understand yourself.
