Yeah, tracking my calories just makes me anxious

 

Geez girl, you are my doppelgänger, right down to the personal stats (our birthdays are even less than a month apart!) and hangups around calorie counting and food cravings.

 

You got this!

Sunset Overdrive, I think.

 

Yeah, that's what I'm finding, too. (The Fizzco thing is the main giveaway.)

Oh, P.S. - for the osteoarthritis, if you're not familiar with it already, Hyaluronic Acid supplementation works wonders for helping it repair and reducing pain (helps for almost any "wear and tear" type joint issues).

Hehe, thanks. I'm starting at the very beginning with just tracking for now.

Hmm... haven't heard of this. I take glucosamine and vitamin D and that helps... but might have to look into those supplements too.

I feel like a bad rat mom. I had to take my little Merlin rat to the vet to get neutered. When I brought him home he was so miserable and I felt so bad for him. I'm so empathetic! Poor baby... if he just wouldn't keep biting people... He seemed to be doing a little better this morning though when I gave him his medicine.

Merlin is doing much better today! It makes me happy to see him happier and feeling better! Yay! I've been giving him extra treats to assuage my guilt. lol.

I'm really eager to start Nerd Fitness Coaching... I signed up a week ago, but there's a waiting list. I'm hoping I get a coach soon! I hope it will help. 

 

So, I'm considering starting to type in my little journal BEFORE I eat the thing instead of after. Maybe this will help me consider what I"m about to eat rather than being reactionary.

Well, I already did the opposite without thinking about it. I grabbed a handful of candy and forgot that I said I was going to log before I ate. lol. I'll do better though.

It's still a good idea, whenever you do manage to do it! I've had success sometimes with talking myself out of a bad decision using this method :)


Keep up the good work!

I'm glad Merlin is feeling better! I know the feels.

Yesterday was rough. I didn't track all day, so this morning I tried to go back and remember what I ate. I did not do well. 

 

I found out on Wednesday night that my sister's girlfriend (who was pregnant) lost the baby. Not only that, but she lost the baby because she has cancer. I was so worried about the two of them that I didn't sleep well and the next day I just didn't care about anything. I wasn't productive, I woke up late, just had no desire to do anything. 

 

Today I'm feeling much better. After having dinner with my dad, I went home, got a shower, fed the rats and went to bed. I got more sleep and am feeling more awake today and ready to take care of things. I hope I continue to feel better. I at least was able to make my breakfast this morning, so that's a good start. 

 

EDIT: Forgot to add on Wednesday I had leftover spaghetti, salad, and garlic knots for dinner.

Cancer sucks. I'm sorry it's touched your family.

 

Thanks, Tank... It's difficult. I'm really worried about my sister's mental stability. 

 

A couple of years ago she fostered a couple of children to adopt them... and she ended up losing the kids. She still hasn't fully recovered from that. On top of all that, my abusive mother has been rather cruel to my sister recently about the whole thing. *sighs* Wish there was something I could do. She doesn't want to talk to anyone right now.

So sorry to hear about the bad news that's come up.    For the time being, especially since right now they sound like they want a little space, focus on you.  Get yourself in a good spot preemptively maybe, so you can be there when she's ready.

Rough weekend. I wanted to take this weekend for ME. I wanted some downtime. So I specifically planned nothing so I could focus on self-care. 

 

Well, that backfired. The entire time I felt like a slug. I felt useless and I had NO energy to do anything. I lay on the couch all day and watched Netflix and Youtube. That's what I did all weekend. I feel closed in in my house. I hate that house. It's always dark. Not enough sunlight gets in. It's filthy and I haven't had the energy to clean. I took naps both days. I never take naps. I just felt horrible. I went and got my hair cut and dyed, and then did a load of laundry. Those are the only productive things I did. 

 

I made my breakfast this morning instead of eating junk... I think I'm feeling a little better because of that. I didn't sleep well at all last night. I'm tired, but not as tired as I should be. I think the nap yesterday helped. Drinking my tea this morning though.

*hugs* I'm so sorry, Rhia, that's so hard on everyone involved.

I agree though - you need to take care of yourself, before you can care for others.

 

Self-care was the plan for the weekend. Didn't turn out like I hoped. Hopefully I can figure out ways to feel better.

It sounds like you really needed some time to veg but your home environment made it difficult to make veg time advantageous. I'm sorry your weekend didn't work out like you wanted it to.

Are there changes you can make to your home that would make it more veg friendly?

I need to clean the house, but that takes energy and I had none. I do need to clean the house though to make it feel less cluttered. I wish my husband wasn't such a hoarder and would let me get rid of more stuff. We have way too much stuff... but he won't let me get rid of it.

Oof! I feel you on this! My husband is much more stuff-oriented than I am and it can get super overwhelming even when you WANT to clean. I know it's not helpful now, but something we do is I have my "space" (okay, technically I have two spaces; my desk and a relaxing chair). These areas are mine and my husband's clutter is not to invade these bubbles. This way, when I feel overwhelmed, I still have an area I can use as an escape. 

 

I know it's probably not helpful, but don't beat yourself up over sacrificing cleaning to self care. Yeah they are both important, but you needed to pick one and you did. Maybe it wasn't as helpful as you would have liked, but you did what seemed like the best option.
