3 days Binge Free
Something feels different inside me. Like an understanding that this is for life and not a punishment. The last three days have been INSANELY easy, haven't even thought about eating all the junk that my family has around. Maybe, just maybe, I'm finally on my way!
I am definitely liking the big breakfast, normal lunch and fasting through dinner rather than fasting through breakfast. Will have to see how that pans out when I get back to Texas because Crossfit is at 8pm so I'd be going to bed without eating. Would probably just do my recovery shake after CF and that would be it. OR---I could wake up for the 5am class. I don't know, then I'd need to go to bed by 8pm at the latest to get enough sleep, which gives me like two hours after work most days, or about an hour on the days I do evening yoga. Hmm. Food for thought.
Food yesterday was right on point. And, OHMYGOSH, the grass-fed beef was amazing! I just took the ground beef, added salt and pepper and cooked up a burger. Soooo tasty! Like a steak. I am never going back to grain-fed if I don't have to!
Body Weight workouts: Pushups and Squats. Oh boo, how I hate pushups and squats! But finished the sets and did well.
No sprinting, and no moving slowly, except for about 30 minutes of shopping downtown. Once I get back to Texas, I'll make a point of waking up a little earlier and walking the dog for at least 30mins before work.
Sunlight, Play, Use Brain
No sunlight (was raining here for most of the day). No playing (I'm not really sure how to incorporate this rule into my life, actually). Read a lot yesterday, so I think that was brain-time well spent!
Avoid Poison & Stupid Mistakes
Was pretty tired at the end of the day. Slept pretty well, almost 10 hours! I am a girl that loves 8-9 hours a night, so sleeping has never been a problem. But I am an early-riser (I think my cortisol levels are right on point because I wake up AWAKE and get very sleepy at night---that's one less thing to worry about!), so I don't stay up late very often unless it's necessary.
So went shopping yesterday with my sister to exchange a few things from Christmas. Needed to get a bigger bra size (midjudged my rib size or the bra runs small), and we tried on some clothes too. For some reason, perhaps because I am a glutton for punishment, I thought I'd try on some jeans. No mind you, this is the juniors sections, so I am fully aware they will need to be bigger to accomodate. Grabbed some Levi's in two styles and then didn't think they'd fit or look good but gave it a go. First pair, slipped right one and looked better than the only pair of jeans I currently own (yeah, I refused to buy bigger jeans when I gained weight...). Hooray! Second pair, same size and brand but different style, couldn't get over the tops of my thighs. Haha. Oh jeans! Just laughed about it and didn't beat myself up because they didn't fit. That's a non-scale victory for sure! Bought the jeans, and I look great. What up!
Hopefully this picture works. This is from last week at the Seahawks-49ers game. I have boobs and hips, so I will never be tiny, but I will definitely be healthier and stronger (which I am sure means I'll be smaller one day, too).
