Terah - Back for more

Last challenge I went MIA. We moved house, and it just was a lot of work. I did't have any energy left for NF. Sorry friends :( 

I did stay with Life On Tellus (the facebook page with free masterclasses is here, if you're interested), and I've made a lot of progress. Sometimes my dinosaur still manages to overpower me, but most of the time I'm in control of my choices. 

 

So here is me, making healthy choices. Taking care of myself an my body. This is my plan for this challenge to make good choices:

 

Kcal counting

I've started to see kcal counting as a helpful tool, as oppose to something that tells me what to do and drives me crazy :P 

I can now use it without the emotion (most of the time). And it is very useful. My base kcal goal is 1600 kcal a day, but I use my fitbit to make alterations to this. So if I have been extra active, I'll get extra kcal, and if I've been a couch potato I get less. 

 

Strength training

I've downloaded the app fitbit coach. It is a really great app. With the help of feedback I give, it personalizes the workout. So I rarely get exercises I'm not ready for yet, or exercises that are too easy. But I'm okay with doing any other strength workout for at least 15 minutes if I feel like it or when it's just more convenient. 

 

Cardio

Zumba and dancehall are still my cardio of choice (did you ever doubt it? :P ). I missed a lot of lessons when we lived with my MIL, and during the first weeks of the move. But now I'm back!

I'm going to take the zumba and dancehall class on Tuesday, the zumba class on Thursday, and the dancehall class on Friday (that's 4 hours of dancing every week). I will only skip a class if I am sick or injured (or when my boys are home sick off course, but than I'll try to sub it for a dance workout at home). 

 

And of course I'll join the Doodlie PVP. Anyone want to join me?

I've been having a hard time yesterday and today. I just gave in to my dinosaur brain. No idea why, but this just happens sometime. 

 

Tuesday I hurt a muscle in my lower right leg. Wednesday it got so bad I could barely walk. So I skipped zumba Thursday morning to let it heal. Today my leg is fine again, but I let my dinosaur brain take the lead, and that ment eating too much and unhealthy. This caused fatique and a nap at the end of the day. This got me off schedule making me miss dancehall class :(

 

Than the evening came and I started craving chocolate badly. I almost got some, but I did some breathing exercises and remembered myself : thoughts can't hurt me. They are just thougts, ramblings from my lower brain. I do not have to act on them. 

And just like that I calmed down. I could look at the thought without acting on it. And I moved on. 

 

I feel really good about myself now :)

 

Tl;dr: beat my dinosaur brain today, because I realized thoughts can't hurt me

The weekend was tough, but today I am back and my dinosaur is roaring in the background again instead of taking over control :)

This was such a great day: I did ALL the adulting, ate healthy and within my kcal limit and got so much exercise in :D

 

For some reason I had a lot of energy today, which is weird because I usually don't this time of month. I've been tracking my fluid intake to make sure I drink enough. Maybe that's it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Last week I had one of the most brutal shark weeks ever. I could barely walk for 2 days, and had to take it easy the rest of the week. No workouts happened, too much comfort food too. 

But this week I'm back on track! I've already copleted 2 strength workouts, and I went to zumba and dancehall class last night :D

I've stopped kcal counting, because I got obsessive again. And that is never good in my case. Now I just eat when I'm hungry and stop when I'm full. I also try to find the healthiest option available when I'm going to eat.

I'm still working on getting the "stop when I'm full" part down. ;)  But it's definitely making progress.

He has showed you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of

you but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?
