    Darkfoxx 55: Throwing More Spaghetti

    Tuesday was coffee Group at a Turkish place - had a meat & egg skillet with some pita and Turkish tea while talking over stomach issues with a girlfriend going through the same thing. Took a walk and downloaded a symptom reporting app. Lunch was late crackers Dinner was wings & tortilla chips out Wednesday Breakfast was avocado toast with my Wednesday Group Haircut, bought a salt grinder, got my nails done. Lunch was the last of the crackers + blueberries when that wasn’t enough. Dinner was leftover smashed sweet potatoes & raisin oil chicken Thursday Monthly wine business lunch - let’s just say I was out till 2 am. Tons of bar nuts & vodka sodas fueled the post -lunch happenings. Also a tiny amount of shisha. Mostly either chatted with girlfriends or had zero idea what was happening because it was too loud - when in doubt and you can’t see straight to read your phone - just dance in your seat. There was also a long but at the end of balancing babysitting a friend and not wanting to abandon her + FFS, it’s 2 am. Friday Today has been a writeoff. Breakfast was 1 rice cake Lunch was a side of fries Snack was half an avocado scrambled egg sandwich Dinner was the other half I probably won’t be snacking later tonight. Will attempt to finally drink the pot of tea I brewed when I could stand up that long. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Darkfoxx 55: Throwing More Spaghetti

    Yesterday Grabbed some rice crackers before heading off to yoga because I couldn’t fathom breakfast Alignment yoga class - which was harder than it should have been thanks to tight but I didn’t know about it thighs. The neck and shoulder stretching felt good though; just lunge holds sucked. Matcha lemonade and a quinoa/kale/sweet potato/onion bowl with cashew lime dressing at the vegan place next door Had more rice crackers when I was genuinely hungry later Baked a bunch of shit that was going to go bad Dinner was chicken breast, cauliflower & Brussels in parsley sauce Spoke with DH some more about being tired of my stomach sucking again; he pointed out that no, I am not in fact resilient like I think - I’m a damn delicate flower. Which is not how I see my stomach issues, but is probably actually accurate. Dinner made my insides stabby - probably because of the Brussels - did tons of research on his theory (IBS), and yeah - I’ve got like 90% of those symptoms. But IBS is a catchall diagnosis, so ... DH thinks I should actually go talk to someone. And I should - but I’m going to take this cycle to report my food/symptom/mood/poop in an app so I have starting data to work from. That also gives me time to find a doctor I won’t immediately hate on sight, cause I’m a bit hostile where medical professionals are concerned - a fair amount of them (at least in my experience) suck - and/or don’t keep with the times. Snacked on popcorn that was too bland so I melted a little butter for tossing & had furikake over top. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    They were 1000% more hopping - which, I think, is what helped us all. The forums are what we put into them - to reclaim that level of hype, we need to do what we can to generate it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Wrapping up Saturday & Sunday on this thread, then jumping over. Saturday DH brought me a breakfast burrito after his SUP session because I managed to plan poorly and was nauseous because I was really hungry. Made some food - friends came over for game night. Games, raisin oil chicken, smashed sweet potatoes, parsley sauce cauliflower, rice crackers, popcorn, Takis, a lemon cake & too much gin + juice Sunday Hung over Rice crackers for breakfast No one could decide on lunch, but DH wanted towels he doesn’t hate so we walked slowly around the mall - lunch at Wagamama Dinner was delivery chicken + fries wrap thing Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. In my continuing effort to reclaim the glory that was me & fitness circa 2016, I'm throwing some more spaghetti at the wall to see if I can get something to stick. Because YET-A-FREAKING-GAIN I was reminded recently (of course when waxing rhapsodic about my Nerd Fam trying to rope in a new recruit) that a: I was kind of a little badass back then, and b: I had my shit under so much control diet and exercise-wise that it was easy. So easy, I was Queen of the damn side challenges. So ... ummmm ... yeah. I AIN'T THAT ANY MORE. And on the one hand *channel hippie "I'm ok, you're ok" self* It's ok, But on the other hand, *channel me circa 2016* You know what works - head down & suck it up, buttercup. This shit isn't easy, but all humans can 1000% do it. Your bullshit excuses as to why you're a special snowflake are BS. And you know they're BS. I've more or less decided to break up with Soflete - we all knew that shit wasn't sustainable, but I wanted to give it a good run. DH is still in love with the programming, but even he's chilled a degree or two to make room for SUP. Things I learned from my time in the gym (Soflete and before that, with a trainer): Re-discovered that I hate being in the gym for more than like :45 at a clip I am waaaaaayyyyy too practical to be comfortable with dropping a shitton of cash on a trainer Said trainer was a damn waste of time physical-wise, but did help with things like injury prevention and my 'too much'/'hit the gas' gene I like lifting heavy things as much as I knew I would There is a way to lift heavy things that doesn't injure me That doesn't mean my ass gets a carte blanche to forget that I have legit ass chronic wrist and lower lumbar injuries I can build something more sustainable (thx basic-ass but actually legit just non-sexy NF weightlifting guide) So, what kind of spaghetti am I throwing at the wall this cycle? Back to yoga. My body just feels better when I'm working in that arena. And, my local bougie studio just lowered their prices pretty heftily per class - so, there's less of an excuse there. Aaaaaaaaaand, at least for now (who TF knows what's going to happen in May - Ramadan - and June - beginning of Summer), there are 3 classes being held at convenient times for my life. 2 11am classes on days I don't typically have anything planned + 1 5pm class on a day I do. So I bought a 10-class pack, and I'm back on the mat. Planning on also adding in 2 days a week of strength training when my body readjusts to being bendy, since yoga alone does not melt the lbs off how I want them to go. And working on not eating like an asshole (still), and trying to see if I can do that in a framework that doesn't exclude food groups or involve time on My Fitness Pal. Which I love and all, but I'm trying to see if I can be trusted yet to have some sort of natural balance. (spoiler: thus far, hellz to the no if I want to actually lose the 10 lbs I'm up). In Support Of Spaghetti Goals 1. Yoga 2-3x a week; work in weight training when I can, but when I do - 2x a week. 2. Travel is happening this cycle - and maybe new puppy homecoming, too - so life is going to continue to be cray. This travel is a real vacation for the both of us, so there will be tons of hiking and walking involved - for travel, just avoid foods that hurt. 3. Continue attempting to not eat like an asshole - avoid foods that hurt, limit my time being shitfaced to my 1 wine lunch a month + maaaaaaaybe either my monthly game night, or 1 other outing. Continue taking pics of my meals, trying to only eat when hungry, and eating enough to make me full but not bursting - despite the starving children in Africa I'm murdering by not having a clean plate (80s kid, yo - that shit was on TV) 4. Continue working to build and maintain my local network of support and peoples 5. Look further into the $ making things I've got kicking around in my head 6. Do something other than sit on the couch and watch YouTube if I'm home all day (see 4&5) And that's about it - 6 quasi-goals that really only boil down to 2 concrete goals + 1 general purpose 'be less lazy' goal.

    This cycle, I’m going to roll over what I did last cycle: Soflete trainings (modified) 2-3 times a week Pupper walks while the weather cooperates Food collage pictures for tracking & reporting - adding in “after” shots, so I may have multiple collages in 1 day Also posting weight reports on Mondays I’m not near a scale or measurement tools for the beginning of this cycle, so I’ll do a 3-month report next go ‘round. Things happening or I want to get accomplished this month: Maybe prepping for a new addition to the pack Travel Revisit social media revamp Revisit looking for remote work Learn some shit about investing Hamad card International Drivers license Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
