Death From Above
Now that I think of it, I'm pissed.
You know one of those workouts that you dragged your butt out to and expect things to just come together as you went along. Once you get going, you'll warm up and have a good workout? Yeh well, this was not one of those nights.
Planned swim, 3000m was going to be a loooong one after I stopped every couple hundred meters to scratch my balls, pick my nose, clear the goggles or stare at the chicks in the next lane. I don't know what I was doing, but I do know what I wasn't doing. Training. My mind was not in it. Everytime I stopped for the dumbest excuse I had to wrestle the wuss-demons to get going again. I made the best of it, had some fun with the wife swimming in my lane. Tried to stay light hearted and tolerate the two ResolIdiots that were trying to bully us out of our tiny lane that was shared by Mrs. LoTC and I since the length swim opened that night. They were really pushing there luck, I just made the best of it. My workout wasn't going so swell anyways, so I almost welcomed the near head-on collisions and asshatery. Our next swim however, there will be none of that. It kinda bothered me that it bothered Mrs. LoTC that these morons were deliberately rude. Nobody gets to bully my woman, EXCEPT ME. I've earned the right to pick on her. She's my punching bag, get your own. Now I'm pi$$ed.
That and the fact I'm tired an irritable. I had a great deep sleep after my swim but woke up at 2am and couldn't get back to sleep. I was starving. I didn't realize it at the time, but I was genuinely really hungry. I eat 2309823095832095 times a day, like wtf?!
U Don't Want To Touch My Lane This Week.
I may need to start counting calories to see how messed up things are. I hate counting calories, its cumbersome and such. I don't know if I'm THAT commited to the nutrition part of things. I've been eating healthier than I ever have in my life. That's a huge accomplishment for me, so I don't want to screw it up by making it a hassle. If I lose so much as 1 more pound, then I'll start counting. I'll allow myself to gain a couple, I can live with that. Just 2 though. I have a feeling, I'm still on the losing side. Quick, someone do the counting for me!!!! I average my weight over a week, it varies significantly so I can't take it on face value on any given day.
