I know this won't help with what you have going on but i started metamucil about 2 years ago and it's been life changing. I eat really clean but adding that 1 time daily has helped more than I could ever imagine.
By eating clean I mean lot's of meat and a decent amount of dairy because imo that's what we are meant to eat.
God didn't put all those cows here because he was bored


You know that those cows are artificially bred by humans right? They don't grow from the ground in the wild.

OP says he's literally *****ing blood from meat and dairy, you come into his thread to say it's what God intended us to eat. Cmon man!

Jerrad I think this next stretch for you is going to be very important. You're being hit left and right with things that are completely out of anyone's control with the fertility issues and the Crohn's flareups. There's not really anything you can do but to redirect most of your focus to those things and deal with those concerns. I do think though that it's easy for motivation and volume to slip more than they need to when something like this happens. I'm just speaking from personal experience; I've never had anything as serious happen to me as what you've been discussing but I still find ways to completely lose my rhythm and motivation when anything out of the ordinary happens and to blame those things for why I'm slacking. I guess all I'm saying is do your best to balance everything and don't forget how important work is for your future. There will certainly be a temptation to drop all of it in order to cater to these other very important things going on in your life. Finding that balance between it all will be very difficult but very necessary.

Re: Transition from a Struggling Pro to A High Stakes Endboss

My wife had debilitating stomach issues for over a decade. No doctors could figure it out, except for some holistic person who told her that she may have a gluten allergy. She decided to give it a try and abstained from gluten and let it clear out of her system. This took around 7 months. This fixed the problem and she has been fine and feeling great for 4 years now, no longer having to take pills. These days if she accidentally has gluten she gets very sick. Prior to that the gluten was just a low grade poison. She had no idea what feeling 'normal' was like.

Without knowing much about your specific diagnosis it may be worth trying as I believe a lot of these ailments are due to inflammation from dietary allergens. I myself have been on keto for over a year and can't recommend it highly enough (though I have no allergies - it just makes me feel great), though a standard paleo diet will remove gluten from your life as well.

Of course I eat fruits and vegetables but I get most of my protein from the cow and some from chicken and fish.
Adding the metamucil has really helped and more than likely I should be eating more greens

Bred for a reason. You know the human brain grew by 75% once we started eating meat right? That was when we evolved and started doing things like burying our dead.

Hey Dan, really good post and I definitely agree. Ironically, the day you posted this I did absolutely nothing, probs my worst day of the year as far as productivity. Had one short coaching and then slept/vegged all day. I enjoyed the rest but was definitely supposed to be a work day. The accountability (of 2p2, friends, gf,family) def helps me reset pretty quickly and I've had good days Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.

But yeah I think it's very easy for people to use their circumstances as an excuse and I won't do that, it is an easy trap to fall into.

I'm definitely a believer in holistic medicine so pretty cool story to share. When I was a senior in highschool, I dealt with Sciatica during my basketball season, I was a starter on a pretty good senior laden squad and I missed about half the season before I got steroid injection/ pain pills after going to acupuncture and chiropractor to no help. I remember popping 3 percosets during one game to just grit through the pain.

I remember playing defense and just thinking... "I'm extremely high right now" Was a very weird experience. Anyway, as a kind of last resort went to some guy specialilzing Kinesiology and Holistic medicine. He went around poking my body and muttering weird things while having me hold different herbs etc.

Was very skeptical, but of course by next day my pain had subsided exponentially and he was really the only thing that limited my pain til I got my current shot for my back. Will def look into those recommendations though.

---------------------------------------------------------------

So yeah this week has been brutal, not gonna go into detail but probably won the bathroom olympics on Tuesday making a record 11 laps to the restroom. Was absolute ****. Literally.

Wednesday sucked too and I mostly haven't wanted to eat too much. Mostly making plain omelettes, eating oatmeal, and grilled chicken. At least it's all fairly healthy.

As far as Poker, tons of off table work mostly due to coaching which helps, but only really grinding night session so far this week, hopefully will get a day session tomorrow.

Results wise, this kind of sums it up

Week 4 Overview: 1/21/-1/27

Very interesting week. Had horrible flareup with my Crohns that made me miserable and was tough on my body but still managed to have a much improved week, I'm fairly content.

My doctor sent me some Prednisone and the flare up has passed and it's just my mild, manageable Crohn's at the moment. Definitely not taking for granted how lucky I am that I have this thing in only a minor capacity, dealing with a flareup for only 5-6 days is definitely a blessing.

1.) 1h 20 minutes of meditation. Yearly Goal: 3/50

2.) 20 minutes of Yoga. Yearly Goal: 1h 5m/60

3.) 39.25 hours dedicated to Poker. Yearly Goal: 114.91/2200

I changed things up a bit going for longer meditations (20 mins each), but only managed 4 days. My morning routine got a little scrambled with coaching and when I don't do my meditation in the morning I tend to pass it by. On the bright side, my mental game is definitely one of my priorities to improve and I think I've done a good job so far.

Yoga still struggling a bit, but added a quick 10 min cool down after lifting. I forgot how great I mentally feel after it so I def want to build this up again as well.

Poker wise so close to 40 hours, wasn't really aware. With coaching, I did quite a bit of off table work, but looking to increase volume to end the month! Starting to play pretty damn well too, and run good toowhich also feels great!




Week 4 Record

Weekly Record: 3-3

Season Record: 9-12

Regular Life News

Not much going on outside the doctor, I'm planning on asking for my parent's blessing fairly soon. (More nervous about that than the actual proposal tbh )

Health wise, starting to gain a lot of strength back in the gym. Think I'm over 200lb's on the bench and squat since college.

Going to Knick's game this Wednesday to torture my eyes as well, fun stuff.

Guessing you meant her parents blessing? Best of luck, although I'm sure you won't need it.

Guessing you meant her parents blessing? Best of luck, although I'm sure you won't need it.
Yeah, I have a good relationship with them. My gf is def ready for the ring as well, so looking to get this moving haha

That would be a lot of fun, think with prior plans Vic won't be visiting this year, but I'm still trying to convince her

I can always count on you to keep me honest Yeah very lazy 1:30AM I just want to go to bed HH gif, a D- in the effort category.

Thanks, not really sure if I should have a long lead in before asking for blessing, so googled and stuff. If you have some advice, or if anyone has a good story with this sort of stuff, I am all ears

I didn't really have too long a lead in. I pretty much just texted asking if I could stop by the next day, so I'm sure they already knew what was up. And then pretty much just talked about our relationship a bit and then asked permission. Since you have a good relationship with them I'm sure you have nothing to worry about in terms of it being a question of them saying yes or no. They prob will be expecting it and won't be surprised at all. Imo unless you are sure otherwise, I'd make sure to ask both of them as opposed to just her dad. glgl

I got engaged in Vegas on Christmas morning 2 years ago
It’s a cool place to celebrate as you would know
