Ugh, this is why I commute by bike to work. I truly empathize with you here - when I first started work, I drove because it was too far for me to cycle on a daily basis. And yeah I don't exactly hold trumps in patience . . . It would drive me absolutely mad when I got stuck in traffic jams. You get home late and then that just kills the motivation to do much apart from eating and sleeping.
Nah, nah, you are a very cool and chill and good-hearted person
I wish my mind were feeling clearer, but, perhaps by some balancing of forces in the universe, my attempts to be healthy have coincided with atrocious travel problems and my being stuck in traffic every day for several hours. That's a killer to my energy and mental state.
But the calorie thing is mostly how I can learn how much certain foods really cost me. Like, I'm getting pretty good at checking and remembering what I eat so I can be like, free to eat what I like in the evening if I've been good all day and not over-eaten.
It's not professional in the sense that I don't do it for a living but between you and me . . . actually . . . I'll PM you. This is too personal for privy eyes.
But yeah that's really good and yes, a little each day will go much further than haphazard random strenuous days. I'm not a fan of watching the calorie count so much though . . . I structure my meals and my snacks which I guess is my version of calorie counting haha. I am very routine based when it comes to meals.
Your mind should start feeling more active. I noticed when I moved to my current job and started commuting by bike, my mind was much more fresh during the morning, once I rode in and taken a quick shower.
