    Diadhuit's key to stabiliy

    Hi, My word for the year is stability. I live in a foreign country for 6 years now, a port where people come and go. Friendship, boyfriend, elected family. Since October 2018 I had a lot of personal luck, but a bit of a disaster around: 2 friends in the hospital with brain problems, 1 leaving for mental issues, 2 friends and 2 relatives dead, a breakup with someone I thought was the love of my life (even if didn't last even one year). There have been really good news too: a friend leaving for a better job, another moving in with her boyfriend, a couple expecting and moving away. While happy for each of them these hurt me too for the separation. So I need stability! And I have it in a really good job and during this challenge I will have the keys for a house! At 35 years old it is quite an achievement to be honest. Yet stress is high and needs mitigation. Setting goals would be silly, so I set guidelines. Goal: don't lose sanity! The level up is sort out works in the house (part of) The movement is to keep up walking and dancing. I'm usually walking 10km per day and do 3-4 dancing classes a week.

  4. That is a valid feeling and I have been in your shoes for much less. But you are going to do it, I am sure you are [emoji5]

    Respawn: Game Mode set to Easy

    Good luck! Grief is a painful process, I cannot immagine losing such a dear one. I recently lost my Grandad (he was 98) and still processing it. I want to give you a really big hug and remind you are not alone. Link the challenge here and I will follow, if you wish

    I'll try to follow, but I'm a sucker... I can have a look at your pattern to see if I can follow it (I'm a crocheter too). If you wish to, summon me with the power of the @ [emoji4] Good luck with the dense challenge!
  7. Oh, that is a tight deadline! But you can do it!
  8. Well done! You are taking up really good habits Sorting is probably taking longer because is difficult and also exhausting, both physically and emotionally. Can you reduce the pace of your sorting?
  9. Bean! You can do it! Be gentle with yourself, two jobs is really tough even without a family and all the rest! And you rock!
  10. I too struggle a lot with it. And it's really cultural too. We are bombarded about food waste that I think it's bad make the food go waste, but being single means I can't possibly eat 1kg of carrots before expiry date without turning orange! I tried a challenge of 'leave something in the plate even if it means filling your plate with two portions' but couldn't go through without feeling really shitty. Lots of work I need to do to be ready to self-care and not waste. I am not a bin!

    Diadhuit's level up

    Mmm, sorry for going missing. I had some huge stresses this week, struggled to keep it together. Recap: 1)I need a clear soul, so mindfulness / prayer / any type of meditation every day (as little as asking myself what do I need in difficult moments) - 14/21 2) I will also need a healthy body, so exercise every morning (might be as little as a push up or a stretch) - 12/21--> this is the only goal I'm not happy with, but I did so much exercise I am ok with the spirit of the challenge 3) I will need a sharp mind, and we all know how important nutrition is for this. I want to pay attention at what I eat with IE diary - 14/21 4) I will have my house keys Monday week!! Next challenge will see trying to sort out works in the house, and some if/then nutrition rules. I won't have a fitness goal as I'm usually walking 10km per day and do 3-4 dancing classes a week. I would like to run or hula hooping again, but won't add stressors for that. I am going to read through the PCOS diet, and see if I can adapt it, as I have no kitchen so won't be able to follow it. Nutrition rules I want to follow: Eat something at 9,11,13,15.30,18 (on weekends I am allowed to skip the 9 and add have food at 20) If you crave sweets drink a glass of water
  12. That could be. But mainly all the times I think I'm binging could be not feeling 'real hunger' or 'real tiredness' and think it's emotional while it's need for self care. I will try to eat at more regular hours instead of 'eat when you feel hungry' to avoid hunger unwanted emotions
  13. I am glad you found a comfort in your MIL, does it cut anxiety in half? At the workshop there was someone with a similar issue than yours and the facilitator said that it could be something that happened when they were very young, or even cultural (i.e. The Irish famine) causing a fear that you could not have food later .
  14. I think I will incorporate physical/mental fatigue/frenzy in my log. I want to understand what triggers it. I found that most of the time I eat sadness, stress, anger and boredom. I am tracking what thoughts are there and oftnen is work, my ex, feeling unheard. Today I went to an emotional eating workshop and we had to talk for two minutes from the perspective of hunger. 'I'm Diadhuit's emotional hunger and I am' I found that physical hunger is subtle causes bad feelings to be heard and emotional hunger is strong and comes from a place of protection. Emotional anger 'destroys' food as would the people that mess with me. Interesting revelations! I also discovered that part of me considers my belly fat both something I should get rid of (health, appearance,...) and something that protects me like an armor. All this in three hours! Also I don't listen much to my body and its needs and zombie mode was probably triggered by walking 15km and dancing, after a week of stress, dancing, walking, running and not sleeping

    Actually, thank you! I needed a reminder of my own tips! I find as well that sometimes my life is 'boring', or better, that emotions are subtle, then when I'm the happiest then my bad days are worse. Balance is something so hard to find...
