I Screwed up, Pressing on. D3/TAM/D1D3

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

Yesterday I felt like I needed something extra. Nothing was taking away the desire for extra protein. So I ate an omelet. I would of probably still lost weight yesterday if I would of stopped at the omelet. I lightly grazed for some reason. Oh well, that's OK. I was listening to my body's needs. Yea, I would do it again if I felt the need. I should of eaten my Chia Pudding instead with protein powder.

I don't regret what I did, as I was Mindfully listening to my body.

Today my weight is the same as yesterday. Down 2.6 lbs. I feel successful that I didn't gain any weight with my screw up.

Today is my Mulligan Day. In golf, a mulligan is a stroke that is replayed from the spot of the previous stroke without penalty, due to an errant shot made on the previous stroke. The result, as the hole is played and scored, is as if the first errant shot had never been made.

Today's Menu:

Jasmine Green Tea
1. Carrot, Sweet Potato, Orange. Super Yummy.
2. Apples, Grapes, Wheat Grass, Parsley, Kale, Cucumber. Yum, Extremely Green and very healing.
Potassium Broth. Yum.
Chia Pudding. Super Yummy.

I will try to do Day 3 Tracy Anderson Method. Yesterday, I only managed to do the Arm segment when Multiple sclerosis exhaustion hit.

When it hits my body shuts down and my muscles don't work - so I can't move without assistance and I have to nap. It's cause is the muscle nerves not receiving messaged from the brain to move. It has been going on for years. Hopefully today I will be able to complete more. Anytime I start a new workout this happens, but eventually my body will compensate for it and I get stronger, but it takes me much longer to improve in comparison to regular, normal people. It might mean I spend more than 10 days on disc 1. Hopefully as the juice fast goes on, it won't happen as often or maybe go away completely.

Right now I am calmly sipping Jasmine/Lemongrass/Green Tea. Planning my day, looking forward to success. While visualizing the new ME.

Press On.

    I have been inspired by your juicing and I am now drinking juices too! I am feeling less 'foggy' my insides are feeling much better. I just wanted to say thank you, I probably wouldn't have gone there on my own without some inspiration. emoticon

    Hi my name is Cherrie,

Thank you for adding me as a friend...I enjoyed reading your blog....I was diagnosed with MS in 1992 and am currently on Avonex (1x a week injection)....There were 4 people in my family diagnosed...My second cousin first diagnosed in 1982, then myself I lost the use of my right side and my speech on Sept 17, 1992 and after many tests MRI and spinal tap was diagnosed with MS....I have been fighting the good fight ever since....Never surrender...

In 2001 my Father Steven was diagnosed with MS...but by the time he was diagnosed his was advanced...from 2001 he started to deteriorate...eventually becoming quadapalegic (sp?) in 2005, then in 2010 he refused a feeding husband I I took care of him full time since 2001...he passed away on 4.19.11...I am at peace as I know he is no longer suffering...he suffered very hard....

The last one in my family with MS is my aunt Georgia, whom is my Dad's youngest sister....

Looking forward to our journey to be healthy together

    I think the omelet was a great choice. It could have been cookies or cake or french fries. So I think you made a healthy choice to overeat. Relaxing and letting our body tell us how far it will go is good I think. I know when I take that attitude I feel like I may be being lazy, but I believe that I will not lie to myself and cheat myself - so I am doing the best I can. emoticon

    Its super that you listened to your body calling for protein and didn't go crazy with it. You kept it controlled and didn't gain any weight back because of that! emoticon And you have a great attitude toward your need to progress at a slower rate. You embody the Serenity Prayer: God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Thanks for the Mulligan Day tid bit. Today was a Mulligan Day for me also, but that helps me to just put it aside and pick up where I left off, instead of throwing in the towel. Very helpful blog

    Love the Mulligan Day idea! I'm just wondering how may more of those I get before it's considered a major screw up.

    I don't regard listening to your body's need for protein as screwing up.

    Great blog, I like your Mulligan day, I might have to keep that in my back pocket! You ate an omelet and you grazed, you didn't eat a whole pizza by yourself or a birthday cake! No big deal, glad you aren't being too hard on yourself and moving forward!

    I have learned the hard way (cancer treatment) to apply a little patience in expecting goals to be reached on time and in a sequential progression. The journey is never in a straight line. Now if I knew that at 20..... The thing is I feel successful just for trying. You sound like you are on the same train. I hope the juicing brings the 'feel better' goals you have set. I was impressed to see that when you 'eat' a bit during your fast you don't wolf down three cupcakes and a chocolate bar like yours truly. emoticon

  Don't you love the jasmine,lemon grass tea? My favorite. I grow a big pot of lemon grass just for my tea.

Now don't take too many Mulligans, OK? LOL Love how you are serious about pressing on despite the grazing day.

stay strong.

    Really love your attitude. No mountain out of a mole hill. Perfect approach to what happened. Kudos to you...Hang in there. It's a marathon, not a sprint--something I often have to remind myself of.

BTW, there must have been something in the air yesterday because I too felt an overwhelming need to graze all day. Blew the calorie target out of the water just like a game of Battleship...but I'm here today...back at it, just like you!
