Our.Lady.Of.Ashes: Apprentice Dragonriding


Recommended Posts

I like the tweak on your eating goal.  That will keep you from being encouraged to eat junk just to meet the calorie goal, which is really what the point was from your earlier posts.  Hopefully this will work out for you.  

It makes me feel less bad about not making it up to my calorie goal for the day, so I think it's already done wonders by making me feel more competent. 

 

Looks like you are doing great. Keep it up! Remember change is hard and doesn't,happen overnight!

Hey you. Thanks. Change is hard, but at least I'm not plugging away on this on my own. That means lots.

 

It's good to adjust things. I like cooking; let me know what foods tend to push you over the limit and I can try to work out a recipe for a lower calorie version!

My biggest problem isn't that a particular food makes me overeat, but I have meals outside of my house and they have lots of empty calories and I ought to know better than to eat things with lots of empty calories cause I'm just gonna be hungry later and then overeat because I'm hungry and I can't turn down food when I'm hungry. It's all very controllable if I would a. recognize my trigger and b. compensate at the beginning rather than overeating at the end.

Do you have to eat out? Can you take lunch? Another thing I do is when I order out I try not to get the carb sides. I try to stick to protein and vegetables. Any carbs makes me eat more.

I don't have to eat out, but it would mean avoiding a lot of family together time because that typically includes food (fast or otherwise). When I'm on my own, I'm good, I can essentially eat what I want, but I experience an inertia when dealing with family that helps me make less than stellar choices. Like on my own in Ihop, I would have had fruit. But when the family is all together, everybody's getting pancakes, so I get pancakes. I don't wanna be the odd one out. This is not a good mindset to have because it leads to me overeating. I do pretty good in confining the foolish choices to the weekend but I'm definitely floundering when it comes to eating out. -sigh- 

 

Today's breakdown.

Goal 1: Eat Like You Mean It

Breakfast: Coffee, 1/2 cinnamon crunch muffin

Lunch: 2 slices of pizza

Dinner: [KFC] Famous bowl

1750 calories > 1460 calories. FAIL

Today was just really carby. I started off wrong by having that half a muffin. Then there was pizza and I couldn't say no, and that lead to convenience eating for dinner. Just bad choices made all around. I'll do better tomorrow. 

 

Goal 2: Strength for the Ride

Rest Day

 

Goal 3: Trust Your Body

Didn't do so well on this today. Didn't quite get five minutes in. I'm too busy falling while I try to learn to kick up.

 

Goal 4: Endurance Tested

Week 1, workout 2

Did this this morning in the rain. It wasn't completely miserable, but it certainly wasn't fun. Must remember to wear pants with pockets when I run so I don't have to worry about keeping track of the phone.

151 lbs. I'm up from 150, but it isn't so much that I'm worried. 1 lbs fluctuations happen all the time. Gotta get a few weeks more data before I can diagnose if I'm actually going up or down in weight. I just have to get into the habit of weighing myself so I can keep up with my progress.

I think your week 3 performance was pretty good.  A's and B's all around.  I'm sure if you continue on this path for the rest of the challenge you will end up bringing up your total grades for the challenge.

 

And your lunches have been sounding amazing... all those sirloin patties with eggs and quac..yummy.

The lunches were made from leftover party food. We had a cookout and my mom can't make food without making for an army, so we ended up with lots of hamburgers and hot dogs left. Plenty of protein all over the place for the past week. Unfortunately, I have eaten them all, so now we're back to figuring out what to eat. 

 

Yeah, I did really well in week 3, partly because I changed one of my goals to make it more realistic and I haven't been having as much of a problem with getting myself dedicated to working out. Surprisingly, I'm doing the best in my running which was the goal I thought I would give up on first.

Great workout.  You were pretty close on your calories too.  Considering you were under the day before I am not sure I would be that concerned about those 37 calories...

Yeah, I was really close. Just a little over. And I was down pretty low on the day before and it looks like I'm gonna be low today, so maybe not that big of a deal.

Weekly Weigh In


 


151.0


 


Still holding at 151. Am I surprised? Not really. For some reason, even if I'm eating a deficit, I'm still not losing any weight. Got to figure out how I managed to drop those nine pounds in four weeks, so that I can recreate that. Granted, during that time, I wasn't counting calories, or doing more exercise than I'm doing now, so I have to wonder what exactly was it. I'm a little discouraged, but there's gotta be something here I can learn from. Just eating at a deficit isn't going to do it. Just exercising isn't doing it either. Maybe I'm not eating enough again? I don't know. I need to keep better records. What I do know is that my weight hasn't gone down or up in two weeks. That's a good thing, at least I'm not gaining back the weight I lost.

be careful not to over analyze it also.  How long have you been stuck at 151?   maybe you just hit a plateau and you need to just keep doing what you're doing and your body will get the point and let go a few more pounds.

Two weeks since I've been keeping track. I'm not very good at keeping an accounting of what my body is doing or what is working versus what is not.
