Hey better late than never, right?!  Your goals look great! I frequently have "don't eat like an asshole," and my whole last challenge was about holding my shit together!!! 

 

How are are you tracking your calories? MFP is what I have been using and seems pretty popular with folks here. It works pretty well for me.  It helps me to cut down on mindless sugar consumption. 

 

Good luck! Following along!

I've never heard the instruction, "Don't eat like an asshole." I'm going to look for an opportunity that use that on myself. I'm sure one will come up.

Sorry for the late update.

Things have NOT been going well, but tomorrow is a new day. 

I have not been:

Doing my PT exercises twice a day
Logging what I eat
Drinking enough water. 


However, I have been going to the PT appointments and kicking ass there. My therapist is awesome and doesn't let me slack. He is working towards putting together a new lifting regimen for me. I'm super excited. 

I have no idea why I haven't been drinking enough water or tracking. Other than being lazy, there is no excuse. I keep telling myself to do better, but I just can't make myself mentally. However, I did have a massive anxiety attack not too long ago. Woke up mid-attack for 3 days in a row. It was awful. I am now on new medications so lets home I get my shit together.

Sorry to hear that things have not been going well. Try to focus more on what you have been doing and be forgiving with the things that are still a challenge. In my experience specifically with food tracking is that it is a hard habit to get into and an easy one to slip out of.  Think baby steps. Great job with the PT!!

I seriously FAIL at checking in. 

SO, I was doing absolutely awful at this challenge up until last Friday, when I had my Dietitian appointment. The appointment went well. I basically knew everything she told me and she basically said "you know what you need to do and what works, so just DO IT." She scheduled to see me again after two weeks, for accountability. After my appointment I was feeling like it was a waste of time, she didn't tell me anything I didn't already know. I'm going to say some time during my sleeping, it all sank in. I *do* know what I have to do. I *do* know what works for me. Even a professional confirmed that. I woke up and started doing it. 

I have been doing amazing ever since, and I really hope this sticks. I am so happy with my progress. I have lost about 4lbs (admittedly, water weight), but the fact that I am drinking enough water and NOT eating a bunch of over processed CRAP makes me feel amazing. I am really working on being present when I eat, instead of just stuffing my face and going on with my day. I take one bite at a time, I actually TASTE it, I enjoy it. I have been finding myself eating smaller portions and being less hungry through the day. I am actually very happy and proud of my eating habits right now. I have realized that before, I would eat everything as fast as I could, and then eat more, because my attitude towards food was "this is really good. eat it all because you may never have it again". Now, I think "this is good. How am I feeling? My stomach feels full. I can have more another time (breakfast, lunch dinner etc)" I have been consistently logging my food, even if I think I ate too much. I am looking at it as I can have anything I want, as long as (IIFYM) and stays within calorie budget.  

 

I have PT in about an hour and that's going well. I haven;t been doing my twice a day exercises. There just aren't enough hours in the day. I do what I can when I can.
