ixaera says don't call it a comeback~


Recommended Posts

Oof, foooood. I don't think it was supposed to be this challenging, but our western diets, and industrialization/food manufacturing have kind of messed us up, gotten us off track. 

 

Oh, cool, loot! (plates)

Having a bit of a bad brain day today, but here's a check in -

my workout stuff is in the garage, and it was SUPER cold (for here) on Thursday so I noped out of using a cold barbell. Probably shoulda just done it, it wasn't that big of a workout I had planned for the day. Anyway - so far I'm mostly on track, the food's not any better this week. The alcohol is still not being drank, and I'm barely getting all the workouts in.

But it beats doing super poorly, in any case.

 

Bad brain day meaning I super don't cope well when I've put stuff off and I have Too Much Going On as a result. It ends up with me cancelling stuff I should be doing for The Greater Good and mental health (like volunteering with the kitties and picking up my plates) so I can stop sitting in a pile of my own anxiety instead of doing things.

 

I'm experienced enough with this state of being now that my trick is to focus on my priorities (in this case, my NF challenge defines them), then filter down to stuff like dishes and laundry, break the tasks down into bite sized bits, then make sure there's HOURS for decomp.

 

Anyway the workout program I'm on is in a decomp week too, so at least that's not much of a stressor (when I finally do it).

 

Honestly I just checked my lose it app and this week was actually a good bit better on keeping under maintenance, so I guess I was underestimating my progress.

Hang in there... (ugh, words feel so useless during times like these.) I'm really glad you have a game plan, and know what works. Also, I've had to remind myself that something is better than nothing - and you are doing way more than nothing. Yay for tracking so we can show our brains they're lying with whatever "I'm horrible!" story they're feeding us at the time.

Update here - this challenge is cancelled for me because my mom passed away on Saturday night. I plan to start a new one with the next cycle, but I need some time.

 

Oh no. I am so sorry for your loss.  Obviously you should take as much time as you need.

“I've always believed that failure is non-existent. What is failure? You go to the end of the season, then you lose the Super Bowl. Is that failing? To most people, maybe. But when you're picking apart why you failed, and now you're learning from that, then is that really failing? I don't think so." - Kobe Bryant, 1978-2020. Rest in peace, great warrior.

Do what you need to do right now. Thinking of you.
