  1. Introduction: Hi Everyone! This is my first challenge with the NF crowd and I am SUPER excited! I have some things that I definitely need to work on... I am a HORRIBLE self-saboteur, so I feel I really need a place to talk to other people to not fall into my self-destructive habits. Training Background: I used to train/compete aggressively for Olympic Weightlifting a few years ago, unfortunately afterwards, between a series of injuries and academic commitments I quit the sport and it has been a massive life regret. I dabbled in some crossfit, long distance running, Muay Thai, but I always missed weightlifting profoundly. About 6 weeks ago I found a new local team and I started training again! I am very excited and want to sign up for the challenge to not screw this up. Diet background: Oh food and healthy eating - I have a gluten allergy, so I have to be very careful with what I eat. I try to be paleo w/ minimal dairy BUT I have a few mind monsters I need to get rid of. In the beginning of the year, I was doing a "super strict for 6 days, cheat day on 7th" type of meal plan which turned very self-destructive and brought me into a horrible place physically and mentally. Eventually it turned into a binge day/starvation day 48 hour cycle. I noticed my weight starting to creep up, which was very draining physically and emotionally. Then, a bit of good news - I had to travel for a few weeks, and somehow my eating habits are always better on the road (perhaps because my mind is occupied?), and I've managed to get back to where I was before it all started... the weight dropped and my eating habits are now much more normal. The biggest shock was that my training improved EVEN though a lot of my usual "rules" were broken - i.e. not eating immediately before/after a training session, not hitting the g number for protein, and all my other usual stressors. But now that I am back home, my biggest fear is falling into my old horrible set of habits. I am hoping between training with my team and having a support network I can abandon my binge-monster forever. Main Quest: Work towards getting into competition shape for weightlifting. Quest 1: Epically annihilate the binge monster - Eliminate factors that seem to screw with my appetite: ditch the diet soda and chewing gum. A = 1 soda/gum pack per week. B = 2/week C = 3/week - Have vegetables with every meal/snack and start with them when hungry - Try to eat by functioning off natural hunger/satiety cues instead of following strict timings and stressing when there is any variety in them. Reward: A = +3CON, B = +2CON, C = +1 CON Quest 2: Build strength - Measurement: Improve back-squat to at least A: 90kg 2x2 B: 87kg 2x2 C:85kg 2x2 - Train with my team as per plan 3x/week. - Never miss 2 workouts in a row Reward: A = +3 STR, B = +2STR, C = +1STR Quest 3: Improve mindset - Stop negative self-talk - Break free of self-destructive habits - When facing a binge/screw it moment, post and vent on the forum instead of buying a jar of almond butter. - A = 0 cheats/week, B = 1 every 3 weeks, C = 1 every 2 weeks Reward: A = +3WIS, B = +2WIS, C = +1WIS Life Quest: Continue to pursue my french studies by registering for night school at a university close by. Motivation: I wish I had something beautifully motivational like kids or family members to keep me going when things get challenging... but this is where I need the most help. The only person I am really doing this for is myself, which unfortunately, is not the greatest motivation for me, and which is why I need all of you wonderful people!! Most people are scared of failure... but I am scared of success! How weird is that!? Any time I set a new personal best or achieve a new goal, instead of being proud and happy like a normal person, I get freaked out a little and the self-sabotaging thoughts are stronger than ever? I need to change my mindset to "YES this is really you and YES you deserve this!"

  3. So, after my orthopedic doctor got back to me and found nothing wrong with my neck. The MRI showed nothing...I'm left back at square one where to go. I was talking with my boyfriends relatives and they mentioned the health benefits of gluten free and the muscles. I don't really know what these are or whether it is true or not. Does anyone have insight on this? At this point I want nothing more than to be rid of this problem. If this is true I think I will attempt a gluten free diet... See if that does help me out a bit... Should I be going to the doctor about this...because they haven't really been helping me out too much lately.... Help?
