    The further you get away from it, the better you are able to see porn for what it really is. Everytime you watch, the more you are sucked into the facade of it.

    Good you came here to post and continue. You're doing great!

    Yeah, we don't watch for the entertainment; it's only what the brain wants.

    As expected I've had cravings today, but I got plenty of work done as well as watched most of Paris-Roubaix (nice last 20k.) Yesterday I was sick of cycling, but today I'm ready again. I had forgotten how much I need to consume for those long rides. I also should go back to the high quality bars I was using last year. They're expensive but totally worth it. And they're sugar and dairy free!

    I think that going to bed tonight won't be a problem. Due to the relapse, I didn't get much sleep last night. As long as I make an effort to stay in control, I should fall asleep swiftly.

    I got through last night with a bit of struggle. I'm away this weekend so that should aid me in getting back on track.

    The extremely cold mornings have stopped me from commuting by bike the last few weeks. So instead I'll go for a shorter, more intense ride after work tomorrow. I think I'll attempt a 20-minute FTP test. It requires me to go all out for 20 minutes, and since I haven't done it before I'm not sure how it's supposed to feel. I'll have to repeat the test every once in a while. Of course there are more detailed tests, but this should give me a good estimate.

    I celebrated too early... Last night I ended up MO:ing before falling asleep. That's not a good sign, as that's usually how it begins. What can I do to turn the tide? Perhaps I'll try to go to bed later, when I'm very sleepy. I wasn't last night.

    I don't know if it's due to recent events, but I didn't do any cycling today. It felt chilly and I had no real motivation to get changed into cycling gear. I did do some work outside, though, so it's not like I wasted any time. It could also have been the reason; I wanted to finish what I had started in the weekend.

    Well, it's not too late to continue the reboot. I can do it.

    Falling asleep went well last night. I slept on the side which for me lessens the risk of MO. I will apply the same strategy tonight.

    This is my last post until next week, as I'll be offline. The weather looks to be warm, so I hope to spend time outdoors. That also means that I'll be able to ride the bike to work again starting next week.

    This going outside idea sounds like a great one. I should leave my cave from time to time.
