    I am trying to fix/change 1 bad nutrition habit a week.
    I am doing that as well.
    Last week was logging my food, and this week will be no nighttime snacking.

    Good luck!

      No night time snacking will be next week, for me. Week after I will go back to using mfp to at least make sure my work lunch is an approx appropriate number of cals lol.

        Would using a pillow or yoga block help your shoulder with planks? To offer support/cushion?

        Comment


          MissMolly no. It is leftover damage/weakness in the tendon/ligament between my shoulder girdle and my pec. Pretty sure side planks are actually going to be helpful in re strengthening this BUT I will not hold through discomfort like I would with an undamaged limb bc I do not want to reinjure it.

            Makes sense and I totally hear ya! I would shift focus from doing planks to just doing other exercises to target the area, but I'm guessing you are already working on that. It sucks though when we want something so bad but life and injuries prevent us from attaining it...

              Thanks MissMolly. I am trying to be realistic but I am not known for that LOL.

              14k steps yesterday

              Today was rest-ish day.
              45 sec plank - again, grml
              Power up - actually got through today omg lol miracles
              Power 25 15s on curls and triceps, 7.5s on lateral raises, 10s on rest. Did press w palms fasing me since palms forward presses are in my Nia sets already.
              Finished w 45 sec alt side ball bounces (6lbs), 45 sec wall sit, another 45 sec bounces

              My mileage will be lowish this week - I wanted to go to my class today which would of gotten me 12 miles walking but I would of been walking right into a thunderstorm. As is it might get me otw home but, at least then I'll be home to get dried off.

                10k steps only yesterday. This week will be low bc rainy


                Top line of power up was knee pushups/hold/knee pushups. My damaged shoulder/pec was not having those at the times given. Did 3 sets of 10/20/10 sec. Bottom line was done normally w no breaks.

                morning yoga to round out 15 mins

                          Re: Eating all the things

                          Maybe try to include things you don't consider part of a healthy meal plan, but that you will eat anyway, into your actual meal plan for a while, until they are not that "interesting" anymore?

                          I did this with chocolate. I would always eat half a bar of chocolate after work. It's 250-300cals of mainly carbs and fat, so I would try to have a chocolate protein shake instead, then have the chocolate anyway because I really wanted it, then hate myself because I just ate 400-450cals total as a snack. So I just made 50g of chocolate part of my meal plan until I really didn't want it anymore. Now I'm having protein fluff with frozen mango as post work snack and I love it, but should I figure out I want real ice cream (not the low calorie bs) instead, I will totally have that until it's not interesting anymore. The idea is to have a meal plan that represents your current reality and work from there.

                            martikkk and MissMolly thanks! sleep_twitch I have learned/forgotten/learned that a few times - when I crave a thing I need to eat THAT thing not some other bs or hundreds of cals later I will still go get it. The night eating, tho, is not even about hunger/wanting a soecific thing it is like, self soothing? Except not, bc then I am distressed I ate so much. I need to think of and then stock up on some "acceptable" nighttime snack. Something like really nice cheese or chorizo and fruit, maybe. So that I can have something small and be satisfied w out this 1k cals when not even hungry nonsense.

                            I got home late, and had gotten "infected" w a coworker's anxiety, and couldn't take a benadryl for hives (which are barely visible but still torturing me) bc it was too late and that knocks me out for 9+ hrs so ya... 5 hrs sleep! Go!

                            Had to buy a lock at gym and buy breakfast after bc was disorganized. 27$ jackass tax but whatever, I got a VERY nice breakfast. (Lox, avo, capers/tomato/onion on rye; fancy awesome coconut mango yogurt; nice coffee.) And at least 1/2 asleep me grabbed my lunch lol.

                            Nia Daty!
                            Did not up anything bc of sleep lack

                              I am the same way with the nighttime nibbling....drives me crazy! But like you, I just try to keep healthy options available and remind myself that every day is a new opportunity for growth, change and development. Your $27 breakfast sounds crazy! But it is NYC, so...and I'm guessing lox, capers, avo must be pricey. Don't know what those things even are really lol...not in my food repertoire! And yay for remembering lunch despite lack of sleep! Perhaps essential oils could help with hives without knocking you out?

                                'rin so what's really going on? i've been lurking and following and sticking my nose in for a little more than a year now. a year ago you weren't exactly loving your body but you weren't in the habit of daily punishment. you were in a pretty good work-in-progress place food-wise and seemed to be celebrating your successes in the gym.

                                since then, i know you moved residences and changed jobs. if we were sitting together having coffee, i'd probably ask a lot of questions about the job. you've put links for sales and i've looked at them. are you happy in that particular environment? i am 1000% certain that you are no doubt super successful at what you do wherever you decide to do it and that's not my question. my question is really about is that the right place for you?

                                my life seems to work in such a way that all the little micro changes build a new macro environment. by that i mean, when i start hanging out with people who make me feel good about what i'm doing and where i'm going and reinforcing that i belong there, all the little things build up and create bigger better things. when i hang out with people who don't feel good about what they are doing, where they are doing it, and who expect that tomorrow is going to be just as bleak and dreary as today, even my favorite ice cream tastes like $h!t.

                                since you've been at this store, you seem to tell more stories about being on the outside looking in, both at work and at the gym. you tell stories about judgemental and disrespectful people. is that who you are surrounded by now? if so, that sounds toxic. and last time i worked in a toxic environment, there wasn't enough chocolate and peanut butter or self-care in the world to make me feel good.

                                you didn't ask and you can certainly tell me i'm way off and to mind my own, and maybe its not the job. but it is something. you are eating all the things because of all the things eating at you.
