I wore my cap shirt to see the movie, of course.
So intuitive eating is working out really well for me so far. Or at least, I feel like I’m doing a good job. I haven’t gained any weight. I don’t feel like I’m missing out on anything. I still eat Chipotle sometimes. And I go hard at the gym. I’m feeling back in business a little bit :)
Have you considered going vegetarian? Except I think you hate veggies? haha fruititarian.
I can’t even consider it! I love chicken way too much, I eat it every single day lol. I hardly ever eat beef or pork, but I just can’t do without chicken.
Yeah. : I was eating a lot of protein on the Insanity nutrition plan, and it did NOT feel right for me. More carbs has always = more energy, for me personally. Thought admittedly I’ve never tried high fat low carb (couldn’t do it).
I’ve never intentionally tried a high fat/keto type diet, but before I started eating healthy and actively trying to lose weight I always ate a lot of fat. Lots of fried meats, lots of cheese, etc. and I KNOW what happens-I’m just sluggish. I don’t need high fat, I don’t need SUPER high protein, and fruit makes me feel good so I eat it without stress :)
Curious, what were your macro goals and how did fruit effect them?
When I was counting my macros, my carb goal was 160g. I eat SO much fruit that it just blew that out of the water, plus I always have one or two breadish carbs a day (brown rice, whole wheat crackers, multigrain waffles, SOMETHING) so it was miserable to stick to it. I got my macros from bodybuilding.com but HELLO I don’t want to be a bodybuilder & I probably don’t need 150g of protein a day.
I’ve accepted it, that’s just the way it is, that expectation is in the past now. But FUCK I’m lonely sometimes and daydreaming about a future that will never happen sure doesn’t help.
OMG HAHA!!! I wish I was confident enough to do the same!
Absolutely do not recommend, the maintenance people didn’t come for 2 days. I already had Alex over to pick the lock. I figure my muscles were SO intimidating they wanted to come while I was at work. And PS there was apparently a key above my door the whole time.
Tipsy Christine thought this was the best way to request maintenance people to pick a lock. Needless to say, they never showed up.
How I feel when the gym is empty.
New kind of workout:
- Compliment 3 things about your body while looking in the mirror
- Say 5 nice things about your character
- Name 3 things to work on forgiving yourself for
- List 3+ things you are good at
- Name 10 kind things you have done
- Write down 5 accomplishments you’ve achieved
- Name 3 areas in which you’ve made progress since this time last year
- Name 3 fears you’ve overcome in your life
- Name 3 things that make you a good friend
I woke up like this.
Stop apologizing for your abilities.
No more of this “I only ran 4 miles, it’s not much, but it’s all I could do.”
And no more “I just squatted with the bar, I know it’s not very heavy.”
Who are you apologizing to? So what if your workout isn’t on par with someone else’s? You’re doing fine. Don’t minimize your work or your effort, and don’t downplay your achievements.
If you’re describing your workout and end up using the words “only” or “just,” go back and delete the adjectives. Trust me, you don’t need them.
