Terah puts the pieces together


Recommended Posts

This challenge I'm going to apply everything I learned in the previous 19 challenges.
It's going to be glorious

Food
I'm back to clean eating. I've tried it before, but failed. Since then I learned a lot:

Mistakes I made in the past How I will avoid these mistakes:
- Thinking I had to be perfect - I can eat something that isn't clean once in a while. It doesn't mean I messed up. I can continue eating clean immideately, not my entire day/week/challenge is ruined because of it
- Tense up, holding on to tight - Consciously relax. Taking mindful moments have proven to be very effective in my case
- No portion control - Control my portions: just one plate full, no seconds. I will use my hands as guideline
- Let emotions get the best of me - Emotions are just emotions. I will accept them for what they are and use them only if they are useful. 
- Binge eat - I understand now that binge eating is a choice. I can choose not to. As I learned from the book "brain over binge"

 

Fitness
What did you expect? Keep on dancing off course!
And one body weight workout or lifting workout a week. 

 

Life
We want to sell the house, so I'm going to tidy it up, and put some stuff in storage at my MIL's if necessary.
I'm going to tidy something for 5 minutes each day. With the exception of Sunday 
It's okay if I want to spend more time, or do something on Sunday off course. By setting the bar low I will not fall into the perfectionist trap, and think if I can't do it all I will do nothing at all.

I will pick one area every day to work in. 
- Living room
- Kitchen
- Bathroom
- Hallway
- Kids bedroom
- Master bedroom
- Laundry/storage room

I like that you're giving yourself permission to be human :) and making the proactive choice to recover when it happens.  It's not an easy thing to want to do.  I'm going to adopt that mindset with you this time around.

I hope it works for you too. And yes, we are only human

Week 0, day 1

 

Food

I ate clean. Which was hard because I was very hungry and didn't have enough snack veggies in the house. But I got creative and managed to stick to my goal anyway

 

Fitness

I am still recovering from being ill, so I skipped salsa class and went to bed on time (it would have gotten late if I had gone to salsa class)

 

Life

A real estate agent came by, so I tidied up as best as I could before she was here.

Turns out we can't get nearly the price for our house as I would like. But we can take the loss and we would really like a bigger house.

Week 0, day 2

 

Food

I ate clean today. 

In the evening I got a major binge attack, but I didn't give into it :D

 

Fitness

I'm doing much better, but I was still to tired yo make it to zumba :(

 

Life

I cleaned out a space above the couch. It took literally 5 minutes. But it is progress :)

A second real estate agent came by this afternoon. She has a different approach from the one yesterday. But they both agreed on what the price of the house must be. The one from today was more expensive, but for some reason I trust her house selling instincts better. We'll discuss it some more, but I think we will go with her.

Hi !

You're too kind <4

As long as I see binging as a normal biological response, I don't have much trouble fighting it. It's just my body preparing itself for the next 'famine' (diet)

This makes so much sense, and I can recognize it from my own behaviour. Do you just tell yourself that there's no famine around the corner to deal with it? I might need to read that Brain over Binge book :D

 

Seeing you manage yourself so well gives me strength, too. Have a lovely Wednesday! :)

Actually I picture the food I just ate sitting in my stomach, or I picture what my next meal is going to be and when I am going to eat it. And if that doesn't help I compare eating more or bad foods with lighting a cigarette (my parents raised me to be disgusted by those). Because it is a bad habit I don't need, just like smoking is.

That's not in de book btw, jut my own interpretation. But the book is definitely a good read. It really clicked.
