Following along, this is a great challenge. I am seeing more and more mindfulness themed challenges and it really makes me smile.

 

Knowing the inner workings of our food and fitness relationships is so important, especially if one has a hard time dealing with negative emotional reactions. 

 

Plus you are cracking me up going between star wars and LOTR. Looooove it! xD I get all twitchy when deciding my fandom theme and then can't choose so short little weird story it is. :'D

 

Anywho, you will do great. -waves pompoms-

 

Thank you! :D I love the mindfulness all around the boards too, and I love having found it back.

It's been gone for a while and I really have to train that whole mindfulness thing again. I think it helps in a lot of situations, not just with negative emotional reactions (although: hear hear on that one!); it is also incredibly valuable in setting goals and reaching them. Building intrinsic motivation is much more effective than extrinsic motivations. Mindfulness can help you stick to that ultimate goal, remind you of that intrinsic motivation, rather than indulge in the moment ~ whilst still enjoying that moment as living in the now is +++. Have I lost you? I hope not. #rambling

 

And ikr on the fandoms! That's why I'm mixing them aaaall up in one big fandom love child! :D 

 

Yup, Hermione is cool!

As for today's struggles <4

I'm getting pretty good at this inner dialogue thing. 

 

Today's Workout: completed.

Spent 15 minutes on the bike, followed by some doodlie time. 

During the 15 mins, I watched a vid that's homework for my following lectures (some statistics, hurray!). 

Afterwards I mechanically walked back to the house, placed my laptop on the bed and was ready to go upstairs for a shower when I realised I had only done a warm-up. "Couch", I thought. "No", said I, "back inside, a small workout, go". During the workout I had to push myself through the rounds, nearly giving up when I got tired or didn't have the form I wanted during my squats, but I was able to urge myself on to do one more good squat before putting the bar back in its place.  And another round. And another. I can now watch The Abominable Bride without regrets.

Articles (5/10)

Three yesterday, another two today. Admittedly, today I had two easy (short) ones, but I also threw in a little video watching and reread my paraphrases. I'm growing more and more confident in my ability to get through this pre-master ~ a person that's been slumbering for the past years is slowly waking up. I love reading, am curious for the topics I'm reading, and I may actually be getting the hang of planning. I'm so happy I went back to school!

Mindful eating 

Like I said, internal dialogue is doing okay.

Today, when coming home, the first thought that jumped to mind was: CRIIIISPS.

Then: let me rephrase that. Crisps means savoury. Do I crave savoury? Yes. That might be it.

Hand sandwich with fantastic yummy matured Old Amsterdam cheese instead. Nommy. When placing the cheese back in the fridge, my eye caught the Coke bottle. YAS. ...NO. Coke? This means: you're thirsty. Tea? Not now. Water? Nah. Okay, have some soy milk instead.

Later, when my boyfriend came home with groceries and pulled out some profiteroles I did eventually cave in.

But that's okay ~ today it's okay. I'm still learning and have changed a lot of thought patterns already. (Just next time, if I do cave, let me cave once, not thrice :tongue:).

Haha I LOVE rambling. No losing me :D I might get confused sometimes but I'll say something. Your attitude is great and fantastic job listening to your cravings and making the adjustments and allowances.

 

Very motivational, great job!

You did very well! It's not easy listening to your body to know what it's really asking for.

What helps me is when I MUST EAT something is to lose my eyes for a second and take a deep breath. It helps me to feel what I'm really feeling, and I tell myself it's okay to feel that way. I used to eat when I was tired to get some energy back for example. Now I just going to sit or lie down for a moment if it's possible or just suck it up and promise myself an early bedtime.

Great work conquering those cravings, or at least recognizing the triggers.

'Ello, Tolsi.  I'm your Doodlie teammate, DFG.  I also played a bit of rugby in college--center and fullback, so I have no clue what y'all do up front. ;)

 

Sounds like you're well on your way with this challenge.  Your cave-only-once thought had me giggling, I seem to fall down that rabbit hole pretty regularly.  I'm definitely the in for a penny, in for a (dozen) pound(s) type.

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?

That might actually be the after dinner cravings! Tiredness, or dehydration. Thank you for finding another puzzle piece, Terah! :)

Still working on them, too! Some days better than others. 

Also - I'm making assumptions. If I grab the crisps, that could very well mean savoury, right?

Haaa! So you are the mysterious, secretive, uncanny, enigmatic, dark and abstruse DFG! I for my life never connected DFG to DrFeelgood, as I have seen you around the forums. This also means I am very busted on not being up to date in the Doodlie Thread at all. Nice to meet, fellow Flip Bitch! :D

 

I have no idea what you backs do either! :D 

 

FYI - I totally just translated "geheimzinnig" from Dutch to English and got all these beautiful words to pick from and I COULDN'T DECIDE. You get all, b/c you're green and I dig that.

HAHA. The University pulled the harshest pranks on me. In an introductory course about boring tedious things (I mean: how to read/write references and find books in the library and seeing if an article is legit and blablabla), we have an online quiz of 20 questions. I plowed through all the questions, taking me ages, and I had 19 out of 20 correct. HURRAY! The test can be done over and over again, and it showed me which one was wrong. Let me just adjust that one answer, I thought, what could possible go wrong, I thought.

Redoing the quiz just gives you twenty different questions. Of course. Why didn't I think of that?

I can hear the demonic laughter of the online university quiz demons. Brb, redoing the whole damn thing.
