Morning Pages Entry – June 05, 2014

Definitely behind the gun on this one. I have so much more work that I would have liked to get done on this manuscript before it goes to editing on Monday, that it’s ridiculous. Between dealing with this new diet thing, and dealing with Karens welching on the deal, and my own inaction and indecision the past few weeks has put me very behind. It’s ind of unfortunate. I will have to cram as much as I can this weekend to get some things done. Including, having Karen doing the driving, while I work on the laptop, and basically just doing as much as possible before Monday, to get the manuscript as complete as possible, before Emily touches it. I suppose, that I could just add to it after the fact, once she’s finished with it, but I’d really like to have as much in there for her to edit and proof as I can. Whatever I touch afterwards, is only more likely to have errors in it, when I publish. I need to be careful of that. In addition, now, it looks like we’re actually leaving a day earlier then I thought. Sam is actually swimming on Friday, so we need to leave Friday morning. I also, need to bring as much food as possible to get us through the 3 days, and stick to the whole30, and keep Sam and Jess fuelled enough to compete. She’s going to want the Powerade crap as well, and there’s no way she can take that stuff and stick to the whole30. That would be totally blowing the program. That crap is really not necessary. I should talk with Jennifer about it. I really don’t believe that stuff is necessary for what she’s doing. I mean she’s not even really training all that much this weekend. There is so much just standing around and doing nothing at a swim meet. There’s the hour of warmup, which is a pretty going 40-60 minutes, and then the actual heats. It’s not like she needs to load up on sugar, which is about all that shit is. I should talk with her about it. That crap really won’t get her anywhere. I’m just going to have to convince her of that. Or strike that. It’s really her decision about this. I’m not sure about how she’ll feel about that stuff. I mean, really, she has enough calories of fuel in her body, to get through the meal already. I read the “It Starts With Food” book more yesterday, and specifically, the section about how to deal with athletes, and they don’t promote as much extra carbs as I thought they would have. Really, she’s missing out on the protein before and after the workouts. She needs to get more of that going into her system. I will have to talk with her some more about that. At least, a handful of nuts or something before or after swim workouts would be good. That’s for sure. Now, back to your work thing. Basically, your at the point, where you need to crank out as many more words for this as you can. If you can do a list of everything you need food wise for the weekend, and come up with some sort of plan that will get you there, then you should be more focused on getting the writing work done. Use that new outliner tool to come up with your list. I would, suspect, that if you cooked a bunch of meat up, and boiled a bunch of eggs, and packed a lot of veggies, that you could probably get through the weekend. Preferably stuff, that didn’t need to be cooked or refrigerated. I’m going to have to maybe get a bigger cooler or something for the weekend, to stash in the hotel room, but whatever. You need to know where we’re staying, and whether it has a microwave and a fridge there. You may have to go and get a bigger cooler from Canadian Tire or something. The more food you can cram into it, and take, the better off we will be. Maybe, even a plugin cooler that doesn’t need ice would be a good thing. We’ll see, what kind of list we can come up with. Your going to need to just shop for a shit load of stuff I think, but I’m sure you can do it. Maybe a trip to Costco as well today. Ahhhh! I’m not going to get nearly enough work done.
