I think I’ll use this opportunity to get back onto my eating and exercise routines. If you’re interested, follow this link to learn about Tim Ferriss and the Slow Carb diet.
I’ll use some time this evening to cook foods in advance for the coming days, I find this is a good use of time, and allows for easier food-choices when things are already prepared.
