Couple more misc. macros thoughts

I wanted to jot down a couple more thoughts about the macro tracking stuff! 1) Eating the same foods frequently makes macro tracking much easier. (I think I said this already recently.) 2) The hardest part isn't actually getting in all that protein, it's getting in all that protein without going over on carbs or… Continue reading Couple more misc. macros thoughts

Today’s thoughts: Work + Health

WORK: Work has been a bit intense lately. The long vacation break was very restorative for me, but I returned to sort of a chaotic scene. I mentioned before that I'm newly responsible for covering a bunch of tasks for someone who recently left.
