Giiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiirl.

Okay. Tired of watching you flounder in silence.

/Side eye of love engaged.

You are not new to this journey.

You KNOW THROUGH YEARS OF TRIAL that consistency is key for you.

And that X meal plan doesn’t really matter, providing it: a) puts you in a calorie deficit, B) allows you to feel full enough so that you’re battling your head less re: unnecessary snacking, and c) allows you to have shit mapped out so you’re excited weekly and can plan for success.

You know your trigger foods by now, and your trigger situations - and I know you know damn good and well how to circumvent both because I’ve seen you do it. I’ve also seen you tell your defeatist side to go F itself.

Sure, it’s not easy - and it looks easy for everyone else (which is a damn dirty lie). Sure, life is stressful and busy and ........ allthexcuses.

You are capable of eating in a way that fuels your body and makes your brain happy at the same time. I’ve seen you do it. And without cheese and post-dinner snacking, even ;p~

Make time to move more. Meal plan. Batch cook. Drink some damn bubbly water with frozen pineapple after dinner instead of jumping for a snack. Take time to sit with shit and deal with it instead of tuning out and consuming mindless calories.

You can do this - you’re already awesome, and you need to remember that shit.

I'm not crying, you're crying.

Disc golf is going to consume my day, but I'll respond to this properly later.

Just know that I adore you.

Thinking of you, and I know that sometimes things feel a bit too much to handle, but as @darkfoxx said, you can do this. You've done it before. It doesn't matter which eating plan you follow, as long as you eat what you know doesn't trigger, and try to make plans to cut out those triggers, or replace bad habits (snacking) with something healthier. Pull out a menu plan that you know you like, check it over for trigger foods, cut them out OR replace with something else, and see how that goes.

 

Hope you have a better week. :love_heart:

Thank you, everyone. Y'all are the best support system a girl could ask for!

I'm still working through it all, but at least I no longer feel defeated.

Yesterday was a good day!
I played really well, and won my division against a couple ladies who usually thrash me! They both did not play to their usual standards, but still, I was happy with how I played and it was enough!

I ate decently as well - perhaps a bit much in the evening, along with a couple beers! But not bad at all.

I'm wiped today - we played 47 holes yesterday! And in the heat - I'm a little burned today. But I have the day off work, so it's all good.

We are going out for dinner tonight for John's birthday, with his dad. I will find something reasonable to order in advance.

I'm also going to get John to fill up my bicycle tires today - I AM biking to work this week!


Oh! And I am applying for another job - this one is another 0.5 position, so if I got it, I would work both positions. But it's permanent, which is what I need! It's as an operations specialist? It's a new position, and the description on the posting was kind of vague so I asked for the actual job description. But I think it's kind of a catch all, keep the department running sort of thing. Timetable stuff, faculty contracts budget stuff. But like, working under the person who is ultimately responsible for those things, so not a frightening level of responsibility out of the gate.

Wish me luck!

Just one more thought... you've been through the wringer with your job that's on and off and having a lot of uncertainty in this regard. This can also lead to you not being able to focus or stay on track with your food. Things in your life influence other things in your life. Don't be too hard on yourself.

I guess part of the problem is that I don't even know what help I need.
I'm in a decent place mentally.
I haven't given up; I keep TRYING.

But I'm just spinning my wheels. I can't seem to stop eating crap food and binging. I've put on enough weight that my pants are starting to not fit and I feel so uncomfortable in my own skin that it's hard to think about anything else.

And every day I wake up, convinced to change, but by the end of the day, nothing has.

I'm just losing the battle to the "fuck it" voice way too often.

I feel this so hard lately. I think I'm finally getting past this and it's mostly due to giving up on doing it "right" and just doing what I know works. Calorie deficit with minimal sweets (since it's hard to stay at a deficit while eating many).

I'm bouncing around from strategy to strategy. The second one thing doesn't go well, I give up and try something else... I just need to pick something and stick with it.

I was doing a lot of this too and also using the excuse that "I'm still figuring (new strategy) out" to not stick to the basic idea of just maintaining a calorie deficit

 

We've done this before and we can do it again, we just have to stop trying to over-complicate it

I'm sure you're right in that that is why I'm struggling so hard...
But I'm only making things harder on myself! It's not a good coping mechanism.

It's been a... weird summer. The energy has been strange.

Yep. Back to tracking, and eating the things that I know help me stay within better limits.
Time to screw our heads on straight!

Let's see.
Monday was dinner out with the hubs and his dad.
I ordered a salad (chard, beets, feta, shrimp) but also picked off of their plates of wings and nachos.
Still though, I did serious damage control by not ALSO having a big, heavy entree, and I felt decent after. Also, no drinks, except a couple sips from John's beer flight.

Yesterday was league night! Again, food wasn't perfect, but still an improvement.

I did make this incredible salad on the weekend, that I just finished the leftovers of off yesterday.

Cauliflower antipasto salad:
1/2 large head of cauliflower, cut into small florets
1 can of artichokes in water, drained and diced.
1 green pepper, diced (can sub any color)
1/2 cup black olives, pitted and roughly chopped (preferably Kalamata)
1/4 cup feta, crumbled
1 -2 cups of cherry tomatoes, whole
Enough olive oil to well coat everything.
Probably 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
Salt and pepper and oregano to taste.

Mix it together. Let it marinate. Eat it. Thank me.

If I wasn't using whole tomatoes though, I would add when serving so it didn't get soggy. Everything else holds up delightfully though.

I'm going to make another batch up! It's filling, healthy and easy.


Tonight is yoga in the park! It's supposed to be nice, I got a new yoga mat, and I'm GOING.

Alright. I've been doing some soul searching this week, and I'm ready to let go of the self-indulgence and the moping.

Fun while it lasted, but alas.


Anyway. I'm feeling much more balanced now. I'm going back to just tracking, and trying to keep net calories under 1600. Obviously aiming to include as much whole foods as possible. I'm going to grade myself on an entirely subjective scale of excellent/decent/meh/yikes.

Also moving more. Aiming for 150 mins of activity per week to start.


I went for a bike ride today! I was slow and I'm going to die tomorrow, but I did it. 8.5 whole kilometers.

Also acquired some golden beets at the farmers market today, so dinner is going to be a kale/beet/feta/garlic scape salad, with some of the boutique-butcher sausage I picked up for whole 30 purposes.

I have so much fresh vegetables in my fridge, I'm just going to OD on fibre and micronutrients.

Omg I'm sore today!

I did NF Yoga Water A yesterday (which, for the unacquainted, is little more than a 20 minute stretching session)... Apparently I'm a leeeeetle out of yoga shape!
Probably a good thing to do before I go to yoga in the park for the first time, as that'll be much more intense!

I also took my pups for a long adventure, and did some weed pulling.
So.
Very active day.

I also overate ridiculously in the evening.
Fack.
I have to overcome this. It's my number one saboteur.
Evening Fonzico is insane, and puts her fingers in her ears and goes " la la la la la la la" and refuses to listen to me telling her to put down the damn food.
Gah.

Anyways.
Hey, it's Monday! Fresh start day. Time to crush it.

I am biking to work today for the first time this year!

Tonight we're celebrating my dad's birthday, so having dinner at parents' house.
They're making smokies (which I recently learned are different in the States than in Canada?!? Here they're like a large smoked sausage, that you would use like a hot dog)
And Caesar salad.
And my sister and I bought some Ukranian-style cabbage rolls (just rice and bacon grease) (so hard to find! I know they won't be like my grandpa's-he put rice and salt pork and onions in them - but it's so hard to find ones that don't have beef/tomato sauce) as a special treat for my pops.

All that should be fine. I just have to not. Eat. After. Dinner.

Woot! Woot! For getting up and going again!

 

DON'T EAT AFTER DINNER! The bogeyman might come for you ;) If that doesn't help, I'll ask the boys about something really scary to scare you off food after dinner.

 

You did so good on all the other things, and walking with puppers again! Sadly I only once took Zuzu and Rosy for a walk since we stopped with Rocco's Thursday sport. I have to get that going again.

 

Hope you had a great time at your dad's place, and happy birthday for him.

 

DON'T EAT AFTER DINNER! AFTER DINNER INFECTIONS ARE A REAL THING... They make your cheeks swell. Truth!

what kind of things are you eating in the eve?
 
Hope you enjoy cycling, AND your dads bday meal xx
Anything! Everything. I mostly keep junk food out of the house, but I will find SOMETHING to eat no matter what.

Hehe yes, I love it!

For real though, maybe I need to institute more punitive consequences for myself...
Let's say, if I eat after dinner, I have to do 20 burpees the next morning...

I love this! The only modification I might make is to maybe give yourself levels, so you don't run into the well I already failed mindset. Maybe 100 calories is free , 200 calories 20 burpees and on up for every calorie?

I did NOT eat after dinner!
Mind you, dinner itself was a touch heavy, but still. My husband even handed me an ice cold beer when we got home, and I thanked him and put it back in the fridge :)

Biking to and from work was successful - the ride home was a little slower, but that's okay.

No biking today (disc golf league tonight, I need time to eat beforehand), but I'm planning to go rollerblading on my lunch break :)

I'm planning to leave myself enough calories to have a small meal/well rounded snack after disc golf - but this is not a binge-fest, just a deliberate splitting of meals. 331f9f3a856adc96498126f6dc359ea6.jpg188661b08c085b85c2c48847a7c98a0d.jpg

This is to officially note that I am done eating supper, and the kitchen is closed for the night. No excuses.

Declaring my intention helped :)

Food was really solid yesterday - the only thing that kept it from being an Excellent day was that I had a light beer.

But I came in under 1600 calories after accounting for the rollerblading, and the food itself was nutritious.
Whoohoo!

Alright alright. Let do another day.

Great idea! Great way to apply it.
