    Fonzico eats like a Goddess

    Anything! Everything. I mostly keep junk food out of the house, but I will find SOMETHING to eat no matter what. Hehe yes, I love it! For real though, maybe I need to institute more punitive consequences for myself... Let's say, if I eat after dinner, I have to do 20 burpees the next morning...

    Omg I'm sore today! I did NF Yoga Water A yesterday (which, for the unacquainted, is little more than a 20 minute stretching session)... Apparently I'm a leeeeetle out of yoga shape! Probably a good thing to do before I go to yoga in the park for the first time, as that'll be much more intense! I also took my pups for a long adventure, and did some weed pulling. So. Very active day. I also overate ridiculously in the evening. Fack. I have to overcome this. It's my number one saboteur. Evening Fonzico is insane, and puts her fingers in her ears and goes " la la la la la la la" and refuses to listen to me telling her to put down the damn food. Gah. Anyways. Hey, it's Monday! Fresh start day. Time to crush it. I am biking to work today for the first time this year! Tonight we're celebrating my dad's birthday, so having dinner at parents' house. They're making smokies (which I recently learned are different in the States than in Canada?!? Here they're like a large smoked sausage, that you would use like a hot dog) And Caesar salad. And my sister and I bought some Ukranian-style cabbage rolls (just rice and bacon grease) (so hard to find! I know they won't be like my grandpa's-he put rice and salt pork and onions in them - but it's so hard to find ones that don't have beef/tomato sauce) as a special treat for my pops. All that should be fine. I just have to not. Eat. After. Dinner.

    Alright. I've been doing some soul searching this week, and I'm ready to let go of the self-indulgence and the moping. Fun while it lasted, but alas. [emoji14] Anyway. I'm feeling much more balanced now. I'm going back to just tracking, and trying to keep net calories under 1600. Obviously aiming to include as much whole foods as possible. I'm going to grade myself on an entirely subjective scale of excellent/decent/meh/yikes. Also moving more. Aiming for 150 mins of activity per week to start. I went for a bike ride today! I was slow and I'm going to die tomorrow, but I did it. 8.5 whole kilometers. Also acquired some golden beets at the farmers market today, so dinner is going to be a kale/beet/feta/garlic scape salad, with some of the boutique-butcher sausage I picked up for whole 30 purposes. I have so much fresh vegetables in my fridge, I'm just going to OD on fibre and micronutrients.

    Let's see. Monday was dinner out with the hubs and his dad. I ordered a salad (chard, beets, feta, shrimp) but also picked off of their plates of wings and nachos. Still though, I did serious damage control by not ALSO having a big, heavy entree, and I felt decent after. Also, no drinks, except a couple sips from John's beer flight. Yesterday was league night! Again, food wasn't perfect, but still an improvement. I did make this incredible salad on the weekend, that I just finished the leftovers of off yesterday. Cauliflower antipasto salad: 1/2 large head of cauliflower, cut into small florets 1 can of artichokes in water, drained and diced. 1 green pepper, diced (can sub any color) 1/2 cup black olives, pitted and roughly chopped (preferably Kalamata) 1/4 cup feta, crumbled 1 -2 cups of cherry tomatoes, whole Enough olive oil to well coat everything. Probably 1/4 cup red wine vinegar Salt and pepper and oregano to taste. Mix it together. Let it marinate. Eat it. Thank me. If I wasn't using whole tomatoes though, I would add when serving so it didn't get soggy. Everything else holds up delightfully though. I'm going to make another batch up! It's filling, healthy and easy. Tonight is yoga in the park! It's supposed to be nice, I got a new yoga mat, and I'm GOING.

    I'm sure you're right in that that is why I'm struggling so hard... But I'm only making things harder on myself! It's not a good coping mechanism. It's been a... weird summer. The energy has been strange. Yep. Back to tracking, and eating the things that I know help me stay within better limits. Time to screw our heads on straight!

    Thank you, everyone. Y'all are the best support system a girl could ask for! I'm still working through it all, but at least I no longer feel defeated. Yesterday was a good day! I played really well, and won my division against a couple ladies who usually thrash me! They both did not play to their usual standards, but still, I was happy with how I played and it was enough! I ate decently as well - perhaps a bit much in the evening, along with a couple beers! But not bad at all. I'm wiped today - we played 47 holes yesterday! And in the heat - I'm a little burned today. But I have the day off work, so it's all good. We are going out for dinner tonight for John's birthday, with his dad. I will find something reasonable to order in advance. I'm also going to get John to fill up my bicycle tires today - I AM biking to work this week! Oh! And I am applying for another job - this one is another 0.5 position, so if I got it, I would work both positions. But it's permanent, which is what I need! It's as an operations specialist? It's a new position, and the description on the posting was kind of vague so I asked for the actual job description. But I think it's kind of a catch all, keep the department running sort of thing. Timetable stuff, faculty contracts budget stuff. But like, working under the person who is ultimately responsible for those things, so not a frightening level of responsibility out of the gate. Wish me luck!

    Whoohoo! It's finally real challenge time, not just desperately grasping for the status quo! I have very little major stuff scheduled in the next 5 weeks (hubby's birthday and a one day disc golf tournament, which are the same day) and so I decided the time is ripe to commit to actually eating super ultra crazy healthy for a bit... AKA a Whole 30. It's been about a year and a half since my last one -I honestly thought it had been longer. I've mostly been trying to stick to keto/low carb since then (and lately, mostly failing). I do think low carb is good for me, in general, but I need to kick some bad habits and give my body a chance to heal. It's a little unhappy at the moment. That being said, this will probably be a lowish carb W30 - I've never really cared too much for fruit, and I'm so out of the habit of eating root vegetables, I just don't really feel like I need them. Except carrots, those bad boys are totally coming back I also want to get back into yoga - there's free "yoga at the park" Mondays and Wednesdays, weather dependent. I am thinking I'll probably add a life goal for week one, but I haven't quite decided yet, so I'm just going to start with Whole30 and yoga for now Goal One: Eat only Whole 30 approved foods, June 24 - July 23. I'm grocery shopped, and have started food prep and will continue tonight... It begins today! Goal Two: Do yoga once a week. (Planning to ramp this one up as we go). Simple. Beautiful. Let's go.
