Journal Entry 340 – Taxes

Unfortunately, I missed my weekly post last week due to filing taxes. I try not to get out of the habit of blogging at least once a week, because I feel like this creates inconsistency. If you skip one week, next thing you know you are skipping several weeks. Taxes this year has been interesting and not fun. I switched my filing method to Married Filing Jointly and Sarah has some investments that can honestly be described as an out of state headache to file. We actually owe money to the state, which is the first time that has happened to me. I can usually knock out taxes in 30 minutes when it was just me, but not this time. Almost done with it currently and we should still net a nice federal return, but the state return is a payment. Just what I wanted to do, pay more taxes!

Anyway, not much I can do about it. Last weekend we had a nice dinner with Sarah’s Grandpa who was in town. He went to the Duke game the next day and unfortunately, they lost. Duke losing also ruined my bracket. However, Duke has gotten pretty lucky the two games prior to the one they lost, so I honestly think it was just a matter of time.

At the time of writing this, I can honestly say I’m not feeling too good. Came home yesterday with pretty low energy levels and have been sneezing a ton. The weather here is not very good either which doesn’t help.

My workouts still need some tweaking. As for diet, I still aim for 10X bodyweight during the week in calories and maintenance calories (13X Bodyweight) Friday, Saturday and Sunday. This puts me roughly at 2000 calories a day each week, which is about right for what I do. I do drink most weekends, so I also factor that into my calories for the day.
