Sorting out the afternoon listening.
Already annotated and processed a deal memo, answered an acquaintance’s questions for a book, and cleared email down to inbox 17. A reasonable facsimile of hitting the ground running.
Big day today. Just about to go into HEAVEN’S FOREST design notes.
I was asked yesterday if I’d lost weight. I don’t see how, I replied, I’ve been eating all kinds of crap and not getting any exercise. Later that day, I sat down to figure out why I feel hungry and shitty so much lately, beyond the exhaustion symptoms. And realised: I get up around 10am, but haven’t been eating until after 1pm. And I tend to grab something small around 9pm to get me through the rest of the night’s work. Which means I’ve accidentally somehow defaulted to an eight-hour feeding window. So I went to google, and it said, “16/8 intermittent fasting may also cause short-term negative side effects when you’re first getting started, such as hunger, weakness and fatigue… and digestive problems.” HI, HELLO, IT ME
So job one today is writing a meal plan, because clearly I’ve slid all the way into lockdown psychosis. Or I’m an idiot. Take your pick. It can be both.
