So I’m pretty sure over the year of this blog I’ve lost and gained the same 35 lbs. I know I’ve been mute here lately and it has a lot to do with a few things.
- My schedule leaves me on the road in the day and in bed by midnight. I suck at balancing this with life. To further my point our refrigerator has been empty for 5 weeks due to neither of us having time.
Weight Loss wasn’t happening on my own accord. Yes I was still doing things to try, but I had a med change and a few lbs fell off. How could I blog about my journey when I was at fast food place EVERYDAY and still losing weight?
I started to get emails from people I didn’t like, and tough skin didn’t happen. But, I started this blog for me. I’m going to regroup and seeing as I’m an open book… I’m going to revamp this little piece of Internet space.
On to my weight loss weigh in today.
I got really sick of trying to follow my dietitians rules, Internet fodder about diets, the idea of whole 30, my shakes, and overall eating healthy. So I stopped. I basically said shove it and ate terrible. ^see above where I said I ate fast food daily. It worked. I am down dress sizes, pounds, and my energy is up.
Do I thank the fast food? No. I just decided that I needed intuitive eating, as my vice is food. If I deny, I binge. If I’m happy, I splurge. If I’m stressed, I snack.
It sound so simple to just say stop doing those things but it isn’t. It took me going ” ok you can have that, it’s ok.” I don’t know why giving up eating healthy has caused me to eat better portion sizes and naturally avoid over indulgence. Hey hey. How is THAT for reverse psychology.
I started drinking a big glass of water before each meal, yep even my fast food stops. Darn happy hour at EVERY PLACE sucked me in…
I also stopped weighing myself every time I saw the scale. I gave up and said Nope. Sorry. I don’t know how or why this is working, but I have naturally stopped all the fast food, filled my fridge with awesome meals that are not necessarily diet friendly, and getting excited every time the scale moves and still being like ” ha! I ate ice cream” . I’m sure I could do a lot of things to do more, but I’m the tortoise this time and not in a hurry to get there.
I haven’t had time or willpower to work out lately, and I’ve completed like 2 workouts in the last few weeks. My ankle is at 60% and I’m taking it super slow. I had one interval run and my ankle killed for a week. I’m in final weaning stages to one of those cotton soft braces and will likely wear it forever. (Haha, maybe a few months.) I am applying creams, sprays, and eating supplements and that finally seems to have helped me get past a lot of the pain, and it finally doesn’t look crazy swollen tendonitis ankle…
Question of the day:
Ever start random healthy habits and they stick to your routine?
