30 Day EPC- Day 1

Monday, July 04, 2011

Nutrition- Excellent today. I was within all my ranges. A little over on the protein, but within calories fat and carbs.

Fitness- Worked out with personal trainer. ( A complimentary thing offered to try to get me to join the gym. Which I did!) I'm going to be so sore tomorrow.

Cleaning- Cleaned the floor, bathroom, and laundry.

So far so good!


30 Day - Days 8-11

Sunday, July 03, 2011

So 8-10 were a roller coaster of PMDD induced mood swings. I ended up eating out a lot just as a social thing with my coworker and my husband during these last days. I was definitely over my calories.

I've decided to start over. Not because I've had bad days. (I've kept up with my fitness and cleaning/cooking goals.) I want to start over for goal tracking because it's so convenient to track mileage monthly on Sparkpeople. Also I'm joining a gym tomorrow.

So tomorrow will be Day 1- and Day 12. I think I'm past the bad part of the 30 days, and I'm super excited about the gym.


30 Day EPC- Day 7

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

Amazingly after yesterday, I stayed within all my ranges. I did have some cookies at work and a skinny cow ice cream cup, but I worked it into my day without going over.

Fitness: Rest day- Still on track to meet goals

Nutrition: No Binge- Within all ranges- Success!!

Other: Did some house cleaning, but no cooking for today.

It's a short entry. I'm just happy to be back on track. I think this new blogging everyday thing is really keeping me accountable.

30 Day EPC- Day 6- Epic Fail and Binge-enomics

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

So I did really well on the fitness goal. I got up at 5 a.m. jogged 2 miles in 20 minutes. Then I did Ripped in 30 with 5 lb weights, and I really gave it my all. I'm keeping up with this part of my goals.

Unfortunately when it comes to my nutrition/ no binge goal, I didn't do quite as hot. Actually I failed miserably. I started craving sweets the moment I woke up. I had a bunch of candy that someone else had brought to work, plus a not so sensible sandwich from subway for lunch with a small dairy queen blizzard on the side, pizza for dinner etc etc. My lunch alone was probably around 1500 calories! All within a 30 minute period. My lunch was really the only binge type episode. The other "meals" if you can even call them that were just bad choices.

It's like there's this horrible downhill momentum. I focus on whatever food I want. I hunt it down although it's usually in the kitchen or right next door. I eat it and whatever poor things happen to be next to it so fast I don't even enjoy them. Repeat cycle each time beginning with the little devil on my shoulder whispering "you might as well have that [insert forbidden heart attack causing food here] since you've already ruined your day."

Small stress at work triggered me to act on the cravings I'd been having all day, and I just couldn't stop myself after that. I realize the damage I've done. But it would be so easy to repeat tomorrow. It's a vicious cycle.

The downhill rolling momentum of "might as well, I've already ruined my day" somehow keeps going. The next day it becomes "Have that apple fritter for breakfast. You might as well. You've already ruined your week."

But even though my mind is talking me into eating all sorts of delicious foods of the not so low calorie variety, today I'm determined not to go there. I started my day with delicious, fruity steel cut oats and soy milk. I've already planned out my lunch (organic frozen meal). I'm taking broccoli to snack on instead of the basket of fancy chocolates in the work kitchen.

I'm even leaving late for work, so there's no chance of stopping by [ insert forbidden fast food restaurant here]. I'm taking small steps to make sure that I am in control today.

Day 7 EPC Blog will hopefully be a better one.

    Yes, I agree. As long as you make progress and think 'healthy' for the next meal. Don't feel guilty! Everyone has a bad day! ;)

    Don't stress too much about it. We all make bad choices, the key is to not let it turn into a bad week. Move on and try to make better choices tomorrow.... I know "easier said than done" as I am the queen of "starting over". Good luck and you can do it!!!

    Good job on taking those small steps! Don't beat yourself up, just pick yourself up and keep going :)!

I know a lot about this (I am a recovering binger! I still binge sometimes!)...we could set something up free on Skype if you like (I'm a weight loss coach).

If that's not something you are comfortable with, I have written a lot about this can check it out on my like "page" at :)

30 Day EPC - Day 5

Monday, June 27, 2011

Today Fitness: Rest Day
Fitness Progress So Far: Ran 5 miles out of my 30 mile goal & RI30 4 out of 15 time goal.

Nutrition: I had some chewy granola chocolate covered goodness this morning. Just 2 so I only went 15 calories over my range for the day. I bought them for my coworker, but I was at work super early and alone and just couldn't resist. I'm really working on the "distraction" eating at work.

Other: I cooked sausage and vegetables and washed dishes today.

Tomorrow I plan to take pictures of my food. I think it might help to motivate me. I also plan to run. Last month I set a goal to run 40 miles, and I'm at 39 miles! I still don't consider myself a runner, but I'm working on that.
