  1. Respawning! Had my 13 yo niece over for my 3 day weekend and went to Universals, so I took a bit of a break. But I'm back! Didn't get to meal prep yesterday so I'll be having a late dinner (boo). But I'm going to cook something for tomorrow so that I'll be able to eat early
  2. I totally know how this feels. I'm still recovering from car accident injuries in my neck, shoulders, and trapezius muscles so doing any excercises pushing up above the head sucks. Maybe it wasn't warming up+heavier weights combo? Perhaps you didn't feel the discomfort until it set in later. (I'm no expert, jsut a guess!) Hope you are feeling better and back at it again
  3. Also, I saw a therapist for the first time on Friday. Used 20 seconds of courage to call them Friday, and got scheduled the same day! She seemed nice, but not sure if we have clicked just yet (it was only for an hour). She wants me to meet with her once a week, but I'm not sure if I want to do that since I'd have to pay the co pay. Any thoughts? Does going once a week in the beginning helps, or would going biweekly/monthly be just as sufficient?
  4. Hi peeps! Here are my updates: So, ever since I started logging in my meals and eating dinner earlier, I've notice that I've been much closer to my calorie goal! My goal is 1400 calories a day. I started off really close to 2000, but over the course of the week, I was able to get closer to my goal, clocking in at 1500 calories. And even during the weekend, when I ate out, my portions were much smaller, so I was able to stay the course of 1400 or less. Crazy! Also, for meditation, I really have not felt the impact until I did a guided meditation today. I was short on tim
  5. Wow, that's so neat! I usually have mad sweet cravings too, like for chocolate chip cookies or for chocolate bars. Maybe its because you'be held off for so long that your taste buds re-adjusted. Hoping to get on your level someday!
  6. So far, I've hit my stride with logging my food, meditating before work, and even eating dinner early. I haven't quite gotten to the walking part yet, mainly because of the meal prep think I mentioned. But I have been walking about 5 minutes around the apartment to compensate. I've been bummed out about it, but I think maybe I should focus on what I should accomplish, and give it another go next week. At least I got 3/4 habits down most of this week
  7. Yes to this. I can't eat eggs either. I can eat pancakes (though not good if you are avoiding sugar), bacon, and sausage. Oatmeal and grits are also a good breakfast foods Also, you can try paleo sweet potato pancakes with cinnamon and vanila extract.
  8. Yeah. It's tough because there are only so many hours in the day. I feel guilty because by the time I go to the gym and come home, I only have an hour to cook dinner AND spend time with my husband. I end up going to bed around 10:30pm/11pm and struggling to get up in the morning at 5, end up getting up at 5:45 repeatedly attacking the snooze button. Ideally I would go to bed at 10:30pm and get up at 5am so I can get to work early and study, but that's only 6.5 hours of sleep *sigh*
  9. Congrats on showing those dishes and that chocolate who's boss!
  10. Congrats on meeting them goals! Conquer that anxiety! I feel you. Still trying to figure out what things work best at what time during the week. And what is Head Space?
  11. Woot on the no sugar! That's awesome!! Boo on the high TSH and Triglycerides :l Maybe more iodide and foods with HDL in your diet might help? Keep rocking on!
  12. Thank you! And you make such a great point. Often times I get derailed because my melancholy takes over, and there is no one to really keep me accountable. My hubs tries, but instead of nudging me to continue, he'll let me go. I think writing about it to you guys will definitely help. Diet So, logged in My fitness pal today! Found that staying under 1400 calories (not including calories) can be a bit difficult under my current diet, so thinking of ways to change. I think dinner earlier definitely helps, its just keeping myself from unconsciously snacking at home or going to th
  13. Thanks!! I'll go with 1400 then Thanks for the advice!
  14. Keep fighting the good fight!! You got this!!
  15. So, got home and walked around my apartment for 30 minutes yesterday! (woot!) I'll start meditation today. I was going to do it this morning, but I had a hard time escaping the cuddle monster that is my hubby hubs. So I'll probably try it during a work break Also logging food, and I'm on day 2 packing my dinner to eat at work.. My doctor told me to shoot for 1400 calories a day. I read on a blog somewhere that for weight loss, 1200 calories will get more visible results. What do y'all think?
