So week six looks like it was a total wash. I don't know what exactly happened, except for the combination of the weather, finding a new television show, and working a million hours a day. I see now that "I'm taking a day off" is really just a way of saying "I think I'll stop working around 4 today." Not that I mind. It's better than any alternative I can think of. But still, it's been a distraction and I let myself be distracted rather than overcome my own inertia. That's not so great. 

Another not so great thing is that I've developed a taste for beans, specifically refried style even though every time I low-carbed in the past, I religiously avoided them. I don't know, they're just so tasty, and filling, and beans have protein and fiber. I'm going to see if they stall the weight loss now that the water weight is gone again. I don't know, if anybody has any experience with eating low carb and incorporating beans, I'd love to hear about it. 

All that said, I did walk today. I stayed on the treadmill for an hour, focusing on resistance for the first half hour and then increasing the speed. I covered two miles, and even worked up to a jog for three minutes. Which is three minutes more than I was able to do a month ago. I hope that it made up a little bit for the past three days of being lazy. I should probably start going through this routine every day to really work up my endurance. 

Anyway, I had a busy day and I feel exhausted now. I've also got my sleeping problems mostly under control, though my schedule is fucked up. Considering I dragged myself out of bed at 11:30 today and I probably won't be sleepy until 2 or 3, I'm not looking forward to getting up at 8 tomorrow.
