-I could have gone to store the next day, so as not to reduce deliveries much, and get out of home earlier. (Even though I was out of some foods) - One day wouldn't kill me, so long as it is just one day.

Day 159: Eating Only between 06:30 and 19:00 (Last bite before 19:00)
Day 158: Being in bed before 23:15

3 Things I did right, no matter how small.

-12 pomodoros (day 28)
-Calling the guy who's bike I'd like to buy a lot (In case we can reach an agreement on price) - even though he didn't answer
-Doing 21 deliveries despite pains
1 Thing I could do better 
-As I started feeling pains in the side of the elbow after cool down, I believe new grips and gloves could have prevented that. So today, I possibly want to take another bike to try out and well, at least it possibly can reduce further injury hopefully (That is in case I don't buy the one from the guy mentioned earlier)

Day 269: No Useless Videos
Day 267: Sticking to Food schedule
Day 160: Eating Only between 06:30 and 19:00 (Last bite before 19:00)
Day 159: Being in bed before 23:15

3 Things I did right, no matter how small.

-12 pomodoros (day 29)
-Purchasing a new bike despite being afraid, I have been thinking about it for a few months now, and that specific bike too.
I tried out 3 bikes besides it for a whole day and it seemed to be the best fit.
If it's a mistake, it's a mistake to learn from. I think it made sense with the data I had. (About a 1000 EUR)
-Completing 19 deliveries in less than 5 hours and closing the 40 deliveries needed for the weekend bonus
1 Thing I could do better 
-Eat less peanut butter 30 30 with olive oil so as not to feel extra sleepy |

About my food experiments:
1.30 grams olive oil and 0 peanut butter for 3 days resulted in less throat pain.
2.60 grams peanut butter and 0 grams olive oil for 3 days also resulted in less throat pain, but a hit of sleepiness after about half an hour.
3. 60 grams peanut butter and 0 grams olive oil for 2 days, when the peanut butter is unmixed (I was gauging if it will be less sticky and therefore reduce sleepiness. - as an afterthought I want to do one more day of this. But as I've already written that I wanna do 30 30, I'll do 30 30 today, and later complete the 3rd experiment

o.o

Which/what kind of bike, out of curiosity? Road bike? Hybrid? What kind of frame (some kind of lightweight material I'm guessing)? I'm guessing the brands are probably different in your neck of the woods.

It is a full-suspension bike. You can google it. https://www.mtbiking.com.au/bike/merida-big-ninety-nine-1000 It is Aluminium. It's weight according to specs is 13.6 kg. I believe it is not at all far from that if I feel correctly 🙂

Looks like a really nice bike! Disc brakes and full suspension, nice nice! Oooh and it's a 29er? Interesting! I tested out one before, definitely a different feel from other bikes. Not in a bad way, though. Hope you get some good riding in! 😊

Day 272: No Useless Videos
Day 271: Sticking to Food schedule
Day 163: Eating Only between 06:30 and 19:00 (Last bite before 19:00)
Day 162: Being in bed before 23:15

3 Things I did right, no matter how small.

-12 pomodoros (day 32)
-3 Hours minimal deliveries
-Picking up air quality tester, buying the avocados which were out of stock at my general two week purchase, throwing out organic garbage in a separate dash in the morning, to reduce the load when leaving for deliveries. (Although the air quality tester might have a defect, don't know yet, figuring that out)
1 Thing I could do better 
-After having accidentally automatically opted for the 60g olive oil and 30g peanut butter again yesterday, finished the 3 day test of 60g peanut butter with 0g olive oil and no mixing (To see if it will be less sticky in the stomach and therefore cause less sleepiness) - The result is that every one of those days I was dozing off.
So I think I'll go with 30 - 30 for now and we'll see how it goes

-Ask my apartment mates to keep the food that I do not want to stuff together in one meal for the period of time that it usually happens (12 00 - 17 00) then, update it in the food schedule that I shall just eat two meals at workout days. But those are just thoughts, not final yet.

3 Things I did right, no matter how small.

-12 pomodoros (day 43)
-Deciding to prolong contact, whether it is the best decision or not, and whether I could find a better arrangement is uncertain, but the deciding fact 
is what was right I believe 🙂
-Watching a book summary in the evening for the second day in a row(It's a habit I had for a few months but dropped for quite a while and hoping to restart again)
1 Thing I could do better 
- Every day I have to cook the mushrooms I lose approximately 15 minutes. I should have taken that into consideration and not prepared the lentils in bulk so that I wouldn't have to cook the mushrooms with them each day all over again.
In fact, now that I think of It I could cook just the mushrooms and add them to the lentils.... No Idea why I haven't thought of that before.
Reflection in writing is king 😄
