Yesterday we gave ourselves and our loved ones a big pat on the back for one thing we are great at. Today let’s look at the flip-side. We probably all have one thing we could try to do better. Why not make today the day we start working on it. No judgments, no scolding, just sharing one small thing we can improve so the DOC can cheer us on!
Want improve breakfast. Every morning Bigfoot feel guilt/iron bar press down on chest: low protein breakfast. Wish Bubs eat whole grain mini bagel w/almond butter + turkey bacon. One time read of diabetic person eat this combo, mini bagel aspect seem so cute, almond butter hit Bigfoot favorite trustafarian faux naif note, turkey bacon badass (it meat) yet conscientious (it low fat). But Bubs not like bagel, almond butter, or bacon. Instead every day choose oatmeal w/ maple syrup + milk. And Bigfoot enable by make.
Worry this sound glib, but also wish improve uppers/downers repertoire. Very sensitive caffeine, alcohol, prescription drug–looking for gentlest nudges up/down.

- Ambien (9PM)
- The Daily Show
- Cruising for T1 blogs
General, these uppers too mild–need more oomph but not caffeine type. Ideal drug give feeling of run ten miles: healthy, strong, invigorate. Also must be legal. Light abuse prescription drugs OK for Bigfoot honor code. Codeine? Also might ask GP for Latisse (for look alert as Egyptian toddler). Internalized holistic health coach tell Bigfoot drink water.
Downers too potent/make Bigfoot useless. Whisky: OK if use baby cup, pour no higher than thickness of pinky. Beer: OK if split bottle with spouse. Try chop Ativan in half, still make Bigfoot tired 36 hours, memory foggy for entire episode. Try chop in thirds, same result. Ambien pretty good, if want sleep 9PM-3AM + trust spouse wake up sound of convulsions/bandits during interregnum.
Uncategorized thing Bigfoot turn to when wish feel different from how feel, but unclear goal. Up? Down? Example: watch Daily Show when want relax end of day and/or when try stay awake for midnight sugar check. T1 blogs: no relax, no alert, feel better comraderie/worse learn new things worry about.
Result this writing exercise:
1. Add chia seeds/hemp powder Bubs’s oatmeal?
2. Drink water
3. More 9PM Ambien
