This Coach Log is going to just be random, all-over-the-place comments or thoughts that I have had over the last 2.5 weeks since coming back to the gym.

*Skiploading is not as enjoyable as when you are starving from being depleted.  By this I mean, carbs taste so much better while dieting and being depleted.

*Sushi is pretty good but it is a 2 on a scale of 1-10 with a great burger being a 10.  I am not sure how I feel about this change in foods for my Skipload days just yet.

*Sushi is far more expensive than burgers.  $300 covered a meal on the beach for myself and my wife and then an UberEats order from a different sushi place later at night when I was too lazy to make gnocchi.  

*Dairy makes my sinuses messed up for about the next 3 days.  I like to take in about 3 quality yogurt drinks while Skiploading and I find that I have sinus drainage for 2-3 days after drinking them.  I used to get this with milk, as well.  

*I am still wearing only full-length sweats and sweatshirts to the gym to train in because that is what I do when I am fat.  I feel that covering up my fat will disguise my fat and no one will know I am fat.

*At LEAST I am getting my tan back.  Everyone knows that brown fat looks way better than white fat.

*I can hardly stand all of this hair and as much as I was going to hold off for another few weeks before shaving, I just cannot stand it much longer.  I will probably have to do it this weekend.  It's a catch-22 because I hate hair and yet I hate shaving, too.

*Progress is coming faster than I had anticipated it would.  I am not ripped, yet, but I do feel pretty full and strength is going up quickly.  I am now "normal" sore instead of crippled sore so I consider that progress.  My calves were so sore from the first calf workout that they were still sore 7 days after training them so I couldn't train them that day.

*The diet sucks in that I am never hungry.  I am not "forcing" food but I would prefer not to eat.

*I am sleeping like a baby and my FitBit says it is great sleep.  I know this is helping my progress quite a bit, as well.

Bottom line right now is if I don't look in the mirror, I feel pretty good about myself.  When I do look in the mirror, I have to remind myself that it has only been 2.5 weeks.
