I’m fighting the urge to get something gooey, decadent, and horrible for me. My brain refused to acknowledge that cheese is an acceptable substitute.
I gave a very glitchy Tumblr a break for a few days and return to missing messages and closed accounts. I must have missed something big.
Yesterday I faced down an early Thanksgiving with my family. I suppose it went well, I didn’t go overboard. Out of habit I tried some of the desserts and I can happily say I found them disgusting. There wasn’t that comforting feeling I use to get when I’d eat them. It makes me feel like I’m finally losing the emotional bond I have with them.
I think I’ve finally recovered from everything. There’s not even snow on the ground yet and I’m already having health problems. All the more reason to stick closely to my diet, get in exorcise and take my vitamins. Although with Thanksgiving next week I’m doubting whether or not I can make much progress before the parade of temptations begins. I’ve already been asked and promised to make baklava. Just the smell of it cooking will be torture.
Luckily my older brother has joining me on my diet. He doesn’t have nearly as much to lose as I do (only 30lbs, I can’t wait until I get say that) but it’ll be nice having him on board. We’re both so competitive and he loses weight easily, so he’ll be a great target to help keep me focused. ♥
My 9 day streak was broke yesterday but at least it was for a good cause. I’ve been sick for a few days and I decided to take a short brake from the diet so that I could recover quicker. I didn’t see a point in dragging out and feeling horrible longer then I have to just because I didn’t want to risk gaining a pound.
Ok, now I can at least see you on my contact list but everything still keeps bouncing back. Maybe I’m just being overly stubborn but I refuse to give up on this.
I’m so proud of myself. Today is my 6th day of eating well and working out. I know so many people will roll their eyes after reading that but it’s a huge accomplishment for me right now. The last month I couldn’t make it three days without binging but lately I feel like I can make it to the end of the month again. Something I hadn’t done since that long stall.
I’m pretty sure I have a heat rash now. I’ve been using cold compresses, some antibiotic ointment and most of the areas are better. I found more of the bumps on my neck last night, all where the top of the sports bra rubs. So for now I’m going to wear a regular one and stick to walking until it’s healed. All the more reason to make sure you’re wearing one that fits properly.
If anyone knows where you can find sports bras for DD and larger (and isn’t ridiculously over priced) please let me know. I’d like to invest in some larger more comfortable ones.
Can a sports bra give you a rash? It seems like every time I take mine off I have all these red bumps to deal with shortly afterward but it’s out of control this time. The strange thing is they’re located on my shoulder and chest. They don’t itch, they’re rather large and hot to the touch. I thought it might be the detergent but my clothes and bedding are fine.
I’m just praying they’re not cysts. They can take weeks to go away and are problematic the entire time they’re there.
I put together two kettlebell workouts (1 & 2) from Shape magazine using a dumbbell and threw in a 30 minute jog to finish it. My butt is officially kicked. I don’t think my muscles have burned like this in a long time.
FYI: If you do this with a dumbbell be careful. It’ll be harder to control the weight during some of the moves than if you used the bell like they suggest.
