CANES4EVER63's SparkPeople Blog CANES4EVER63's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community I'm a mess My eating this week? Far from perfect. Way too much wine, way too much gummies. Mix that with overeating and you've got a hot mess. So no more, of both. I didn't have wine or gummies yesterday, but I most likely did overeat, I've just been wanting to snack all day, it's so hard for me to not think about food. <BR> <BR> I'm also extremely stressed, like beyond stressed. Having panic attacks stressed. I'm blaming simply being stressed, but also coming off of the medication I'm on. There wasn'... Sun, 29 Nov 2015 04:11:08 EST Homesick and missing Thanksgiving :( So I've been in the UK for about 2.5 months, no biggie, I've been able to skype with everyone I care about and have made friends. Will they be lifelong friends, probably not, but they're still great. <BR> <BR> But tomorrow is Thanksgiving and all of my fb friends back in the States are talking about breaks and relaxing and spending time with family, heck, it's all over SP as well. It's making me sad. This is the first Thanksgiving I'll miss. Ever. Even when I was living 3 hours away and work... Wed, 25 Nov 2015 14:36:16 EST Resetting The past two days haven't been pleasant, but the entire week was, so does it even out? Maybe. Thursday was just over eating all day and then having some gummies. Friday was not eating enough, but then eating gummies and brownies. But man, those brownies. I knew I shouldn't, but the chocolate went right through me (and still is hours 12 hours later!) - TMI? :0 Sometimes the foods I'm allergic to do that, at least my face isn't swollen, but I'm afraid to leave my room since I need to be close t... Sat, 21 Nov 2015 04:04:56 EST Hanging in there Cue my random thoughts: <BR> <BR> I'm taking a stress free day today. This week has been really long and having classes right in the middle on Tuesday and Wednesday is draining. I don't get to go to the gym on those days and I think that makes it worse. But I've been productive this week and it's time to start the next batch of assignments. I'll tackle that this afternoon. Maybe it'll wait until tomorrow, but as I said, I just need to relax a bit! <BR> <BR> Food has been ok. Lunch is barel... Thu, 19 Nov 2015 06:43:37 EST What I've learned this week/SP motivator!?!?! To help with my gummy addiction and kick my sugar craving in the butt, I've done some soul searching - aka, have turned to honey. It's been amazing. I don't have the urges like I did the week before and having a sweet breakfast (my banana pancake - 2 eggs, 1 banana, cinnamon) drizzled with honey has set me up to have more energy for the morning than my regular breakfast of 2 eggs, a tomato, and possibly bacon as well. I get the sweet fix and it's enough to last. Also, relatively healthy. <BR>... Sat, 14 Nov 2015 03:19:05 EST So incredibly stressed right now. Classes are definitely stressing me out right now. I feel like I don't understand anything and I don't like that. It's the theory I don't get and I feel like it's not something I need to know for real world applications (and talking to my friend who did a somewhat similar program). I am really questioning this program and I don't like that. It makes me wonder if I should have done a more broad program, which people who do don't really get jobs afterwards because it's so broad. So I'm glad I'm... Thu, 12 Nov 2015 05:00:34 EST It's Monday I like Mondays. It's a fresh start to the week, a day to start over, etc. I need to get out of that mind set though because EVERY day should be a day to start fresh. After all, you can only do this journey one day at a time. <BR> <BR> I had a banana pancake for breakfast. It was amazing. But then I just felt like moving, so I went on a 30 minute run. Later on today, I have a spin class and body pump, a ST class. My run was great. I'm slowly getting back into it and I would love to do the ha... Mon, 9 Nov 2015 05:47:57 EST Revitalizing my diet So I need a way to get naturally sweet foods into my diet, I have to, but I can't overdo it at the same time. I've got to stop binging on gummies. So this is it. I'm open for suggestions, but this is what I've come up with: <BR> <BR> banana pancakes with a drizzle of honey <BR> sweet potato pancakes <BR> prosciutto wrapped dates <BR> dark chocolate <BR> baked apples <BR> sweet potato fries (dipping sauce ideas? - maybe just a drizzle of honey will work!) <BR> fruit preserves (although mayb... Sat, 7 Nov 2015 06:52:32 EST The last hurrah So the last day has been a whirlwind and I'm not happy with some of the choices or the news I've gotten. <BR> <BR> I went to the GP yesterday to talk about getting off my mood stabilizing meds for my possible bipolar diagnosis. They've contributed to the weight gain, but are definitely preventing any current weight loss. But I also want to get off of them for other various reasons, but that's not the point of this blog. It's going to take 2-3 months for me to taper off and have them leave my... Fri, 6 Nov 2015 12:18:54 EST Tuesday food log plus thoughts Ok, no longer comparing to what was planned because that just seems pointless to begin with. I think to help me food shop, I might plan 7 meals, 7 lunches, 7 breakfasts, 7 snacks (if needed) and just eat them whenever I feel like during the week. This will just minimize food shopping trips, because let's face it, having to walk 0.75 miles to the store and back WITH your one reusable grocery bag is a pain in the butt. <BR> <BR> So today sucked, I blame it on not eating enough yesterday and ba... Tue, 3 Nov 2015 15:46:22 EST Monday food log I have to say, I don't know how I feel about doing this on a daily basis, but I do want to see if it helps. <BR> <BR> So planned: <BR> B: 2 eggs, 1 bacon , tomato <BR> L: 2 rice cakes, PB, banana (before workout!) <BR> S: prosciutto wrapped asparagus <BR> D: sweet potato "lasagna" <BR> <BR> Actual: <BR> B: 2 eggs, 1 bacon, tomato <BR> L: 2 rice cakes, PB, banana (was after workout though, so not until 3:45) <BR> D: tomato soup with spinach and sausage <BR> <BR> I essentially switched ... Mon, 2 Nov 2015 14:35:23 EST Sunday food journal Planned: <BR> B: 2 eggs, 1 bacon, tomato <BR> L: 2 rice cakes, PB, banana (after workout) <BR> S: baked eggplant "fries" <BR> D: tomato soup with sausage <BR> <BR> Actual: <BR> B: 2 eggs, 1 bacon, tomato <BR> L: baked eggplant "fries" <BR> D: eggplant "lasagna" <BR> S: 2 rice cakes, PB, banana <BR> D: some dark chocolate <BR> <BR> So not too bad. The snack and dessert weren't needed, but I feel better having eaten them. I should have just brushed my teeth and ignored the urge to eat mo... Sun, 1 Nov 2015 14:43:58 EST Time for reflection So I failed, again. I ended up going to the store yesterday to buy chicken wings. They were a success, I think I'll cook the rest today. I even made a delicious tahini lemon sauce to dip them in. But as you can guess, brownies and gummies ended up in my basket, again. I didn't binge, they lasted all afternoon and evening again. Along with the chicken wings, they were my lunch, snack, and dinner. But I failed, miserably. I thought I was starting on the right page, but I obviously wasn't. Maybe... Sun, 1 Nov 2015 06:28:00 EST Control I didn't binge yesterday. Definitely not a binge, it wasn't, I promise. I overate though, big time. I had gummies and brownies, but not all at one sitting, so that was good. I made it last for hours upon hours, all afternoon and evening. I was getting anxious when I was walking to the store -to buy or not to buy, I had decided not to and felt so much bette. But somehow, and I don't really know how, they ended up in my basket. I had no myself "no", but it just didn't work. So I snacked on them... Sat, 31 Oct 2015 06:48:43 EST It's Monday! And that means 2 hours at the gym (so excited to finally be able to workout again!) and the start of a new week. I'm really looking forward to it. Five days without wine, five days without sugar. I can do this. Well, my class is going to a pub tomorrow, so I'll have a glass then, but I'll limit myself to just one. My body doesn't want anymore sugar right now, I completely over did it this past weekend. <BR> <BR> However, I'm back to the whole "should I weigh myself" debate. I know I can't d... Mon, 26 Oct 2015 05:17:14 EST Feeling a bit down So I broke down and had a glass of wine with dinner last night. No big deal, it's about cutting down, not eliminating. So ok. But then I had 2 bags, *cough*, 3 bags of gummies afterwards. Then I felt sick. I don't know what made me do it. I just REALLY wanted it. I suppose I was feeling my lack of a social life and decided to eat. Kind of a big break through. But now that I have, I want to continue and eat some brownies and restart tomorrow. I just really want to eat. But am I eating my emoti... Sun, 25 Oct 2015 05:15:56 EST New goals So I've been doing a lot of thinking and I have a few goals I'm going to work on. They're going to be challenging, but I'm an all or nothing person, so I'm going all in. <BR> <BR> Goal 1: no sugar. Well no added sugar. Natural is ok, so fruits are in (not that I eat many anyways). This is pretty much so I eliminate gummeis and brownies. I don't need them, they make me sick, etc. No more. <BR> <BR> Goal 2: no wine. Every time I've lost weight in the past was because I wasn't drinking wine, o... Thu, 22 Oct 2015 05:54:51 EST I'm on a blogging role! So I need some advice - <BR> <BR> I've been having the urge to weigh myself. I feel like I just need to know, you know? Or I need someone to track it for me, but isn't happening right now. I wish my coach would have, but she didn't seem to think it was a good idea? I don't know, I didn't see a scale anywhere to begin with. But we were at a gym, so really, there had to be one somewhere... I'm seeing her again in a couple weeks so maybe I'll bring it up. <BR> <BR> But this is my idea - get s... Mon, 19 Oct 2015 05:41:29 EST Sugar cravings: what google has told me So I know I've been craving sugar a lot recently and it's getting to the point where it is messing with my normal state of mind and my anxiety levels. Naturally, I do some research, and this is what google has told me: <BR> <BR> Hypothyroid <BR> I know my thyroid is out of whack, last time I checked it, my TSH was nearly double what it normally runs, but it's still not significant enough to cause major symptoms. But a under active thyroid can lead to sugar cravings. Perhaps I should get it r... Sun, 18 Oct 2015 14:52:44 EST To go to the store or not to go? This is mainly for my own purposes. Writing helps me figure things out, so here we go. <BR> <BR> If I go to the store, I'm going to buy gummies and/or brownies, maybe some crisps (oh, look at me finally starting to naturally use the British lingo). BUT, I don't WANT to buy them. I feel like if I buy them and eat them, that I'll be punishing myself. But for what reason? Because I ate gummies the other day and sabotaged myself so I figure I might as well keep going? I've been wanting those bro... Sun, 18 Oct 2015 05:55:35 EST Recap of the lifestyle/nutrition meeting It was interesting. The person I met with is part nutritionist, part exercise, part time management, part therapist, part a little bit of everything - she just isn't certified in any of it, which I'm ok with as it's all about experience anyways. <BR> <BR> So I told her my history. All of it. The over restricting in the past, the major binging that followed causing some of the 100 lbs that I lost to come back, the minor binging that's happening now about once every week or so. The medications... Sat, 17 Oct 2015 04:29:44 EST Delicious dinner! So I've been in a curry rut recently. Easy to make, delicious, one pot meal, etc. But I love to cook and I was honestly getting tired of curry. As I'm settling into my new flat, I've taken more space in the fridge and have therefore bought more food (other than the simple ingredients to make curry, that is! - gotta love the the precut stir fry mixes at the store!). <BR> <BR> So what did I make for dinner? Delicious homemade meatballs, homemade tomato sauce, and zucchini pasta. Amazing. And ... Thu, 15 Oct 2015 14:05:15 EST I just want to eat! Like a lot! I've done a relaxation/calming video, it didn't help all that much. I've already had a snack, followed by dinner, and now I'm still wanting to eat, although I shouldn't need to! All I can think about is grocery shopping tomorrow and deciding if I'll get those dang brownies. I don't need them, but I do want them. Even if I can spread them out and have one a day so I don't binge on them, it'll be better than nothing. I have no idea how many cal each one is, I blame the UK nutrition ... Wed, 14 Oct 2015 15:07:02 EST Starting to feel refocused? Or at least I hope I am. That's what my "new game plan" blog was suppose to be, but that didn't really work. The past 4 days or so have been perfectly fine, granted I had this weird stomach bug over the weekend so I couldn't eat anything, couldn't move out of bed, really. I ended up fainting as well, who knows why, but it's been about 2.5 years since I have. <BR> <BR> But I'm starting to feel recommitted. I just have to remember this feeling when the cravings hit and think "oh yeah, this is... Mon, 12 Oct 2015 05:33:05 EST Feeling overwhelmed Not just about food, but about everything. Food is definitely contributing to my mood right now, but so is the stress of school and all of this independent learning. I'm having to figure out how classes work here (so different than the States!), how grades are done (a 50 is passing!?) and that sort of thing. On top of it, I need to learn all of the information on my own since I only have class two days a week. I'm concerned about one class, well really two, but we haven't had the second one y... Mon, 5 Oct 2015 12:52:55 EST New game plan So recovering from the binge and this is what I'm thinking. <BR> <BR> 1. Eat more carbs. I think if I were to do so then the strong cravings wouldn't be there. I will allow myself to have potatoes with my breakfast. And getting them in the morning means I can burn them throughout the day. <BR> <BR> 2. I need some sort of dessert, but I need some ideas since I have so many food allergies (gluten, dairy, soy, corn, oats, chocolate, nutmeg, mustard, shrimp, crab, walnuts, almonds, cashews, pis... Fri, 2 Oct 2015 04:02:00 EST Binging This binge is over, thank goodness. It has not been nice to me. Rephrase, I shouldn't have done it to myself? Now I feel like crap. The positive? I didn't eat food I'm allergic to like I normally would? I ate potato chips and these chocolate brownies I found that I can actually eat. Rephrase, that I can eat in small amounts since I can only handle small amounts of chocolate at a time. But, I ate more than a small amount. Oh yeah, I also had some gummies. The bottom line? I wanted carbs and I ... Thu, 1 Oct 2015 06:38:32 EST Running, I hate thee So I use to be an avid runner. This was at the peak of my weight loss about 2.5 years ago. I started from not being able to run a mile to running a half marathon. I know how it happens, I know the struggles, I know the frustrations and the pain. <BR> <BR> But I don't know this. <BR> <BR> I'm trying to get back into running. I ran for the first time in who knows how long a week ago and managed to a 5k, my goal. It was rough at the end. The following day was the park run (a free, timed 5k run... Sat, 26 Sep 2015 05:12:34 EST Had my school induction today Which for those who aren't familiar with the term, it's pretty much my orientation. I'm excited, I'm nervous, I'm overwhelmed, I'm scared. There seems to be a lot more statistics than what I bargained for, but we aren't expected to have a strong math/statistical background, so it must be ok, I would imagine. What scared me the most is that because this is a masters program, the instructors don't do the teaching. They give us the information and we learn it on our own, they are there for guida... Thu, 24 Sep 2015 13:23:25 EST I'm not sure what to think or how to feel So my mind is sending me mixed messages and I'm torn between the two signals that I'm getting. One side is going "you shouldn't have eaten that snack after dinner last night" and the other is going "but you were hungry and needed the food, so it's ok" And back and forth and back and forth. My spin class this morning was interesting, and it only lasted 30 minutes instead of the usual 45, but I didn't bring my headphones with me to do more cardio afterwards. On the other hand, I'm doing a body ... Tue, 22 Sep 2015 04:34:19 EST A commitment to monitor myself I can feel myself slipping back into my old over restrictive eating habits and I will not let myself get to the point where I was a few years ago. I'm in a new country, do not know the healthcare system very well and I cannot start fainting again. Although last time, I only started fainting about 6 months in to my restrictive habits, so I know I have time. But that's the disordered eating voice talking. Still, I do not want to let it go on for that long. I do not want to become obsessive agai... Sun, 20 Sep 2015 07:36:07 EST Things are starting to look up, I hope! I'm started to get settled in my new country and it looks like things are going to go pretty smoothly. I'm registered for classes (except for my theme modules), I have my student ID, I have my bank account, with no money, albeit, I've figured out the awesome gym, and I'm starting to learn my way around the city, and a little bit of campus as well. <BR> <BR> I'm walking, everywhere. Up and down the hills, all day everyday. And going to the gym. I'm getting in a lot of physical activity. I sh... Thu, 17 Sep 2015 11:46:53 EST All moved in and completely stressed! So after almost a year of getting my offer letter, I am finally here in my new city, new country, be it! It's been quite stressful, there is SO much to learn about a UK education system that is very different than the US. I'm use to going to one place and taking care of everything, but here in the UK I am being told different things from different people, going to different buildings, etc. At least I finally got my tuition paid. BUT, even though that is done, I can't register for classes beca... Mon, 14 Sep 2015 17:15:10 EST Not to weigh That's my decision. It can wait a few months. I'm fine if someone else weighs me and gives me progress reports, just telling me I'm down is all I need to know because knowing how much will affect my mood. See, it's all about the numbers, I can't handle them. <BR> <BR> I was cleaning out my closet and deciding what clothes I wanted to move with me, what to donate, and what to hold on to. It was rough. All of my size 6/8 jeans I'm holding on to because I expect myself to get back to that weigh... Tue, 8 Sep 2015 17:22:02 EST To weigh, or not to weigh, that is the question I'm really debating if I should weigh myself right now. I can't do numbers, I know that, they lead to an unhealthy obsession, but I finally feel like I'm getting on track again and I feel like I'm getting more stable. But hey, I thought that at the beginning of the summer and I didn't lose much weight then, so why would it change now? So if I do weigh myself and the number doesn't start to go down, then I know I'll get frustrated. One aspect is that I'll be back at school and will not have my... Tue, 8 Sep 2015 07:01:18 EST Thinking about coming back to Spark and recap of the past year Hey everyone! <BR> <BR> What's shaking? I've missed all of you during my one year (has it really been that long?) hiatus from Spark. I've been focusing on myself and trying to recover from the damage I did to my body from losing weight the wrong way. So I'll start from the beginning and sum it all up for all of you that are still on here. <BR> <BR> Go back to 2012. I lost a lot of weight very quickly - about 80 lbs in 8 months, then an additional 20 lbs in the following few months. I did th... Thu, 3 Sep 2015 13:19:23 EST I'm slipping - in a negative way In my food habits, that is. <BR> <BR> I've barely eaten over the past 2 weeks. Like nothing at all. Today, I'm feeing it. I want carbs and fat, really bad. All I've eaten are fruits and veggies. That's it. Seriously. Oh, and a slice or two of turkey bacon with lunch. That, plus tahini is my only source of protein right now. Like I said, I'm feeling it. <BR> <BR> My normal day - wake up, go to the gym, eat lunch (some sort of veggie with turkey bacon. Ie, green beans with tomatoes and turkey... Fri, 21 Feb 2014 03:26:01 EST Measurements update! Side note: I've been a pooping machine for the past few days, woo! Go body, finally getting rid of the soy, dairy, corn, and gluten that I ingested over a week ago! <BR> <BR> So I weighed in this morning, 134.8! Last measurements day was 135.4, I'll take it! (According to their scale, I'm down 2 lbs) <BR> <BR> So the measurements, that I can remember - <BR> Neck, biceps, calfs, chest stayed the same. <BR> Everything else went down. By how much? I don't remember. I know my thighs are 0.5 inc... Tue, 18 Feb 2014 01:56:51 EST My body is adjusting. Slowly. So have I recovered from last weekend's binge on foods that might kill me? I don't know. I'm still constipated. I know, an entire week. My stomach hates me, this might be my reminder NOT to give into those urges next time I'm at my parents house. <BR> <BR> I've actually eaten really well since then. Ok. Rephrase. NOT really well, but well for my control freaking out mind. I've barely eaten. And only fruits and veggies and turkey bacon. I just haven't been hungry. This week has been awful. S... Fri, 14 Feb 2014 13:56:12 EST I think I might die Overdramatic? Yes. But I'm sure it caught your intention! <BR> <BR> PS: I'm slightly drunk. Majorly tipsy. Majorly sick. <BR> <BR> I'm home with my parents. There are SO many temptations here. I have AWFUL self control. I don't buy foods I know I'll indulge on. I don't buy nuts, I don't buy nut butters, I don't buy chocolate (even the 100% pure cocoa powder!), I don't buy eggs, and I don't buy bananas (the latter two allow me to make a microwave brownie. An apple or apple sauce can substit... Sun, 9 Feb 2014 00:52:48 EST Measurements So on Monday, my Personal Trainer, went "measurements!" and I started freaking out and asked when. He looked at my file and said 2 weeks and asked if I was nervous and whatnot. Obviously the look of fear came across my face and he told me I should have nothing to worry about. <BR> <BR> We'll see. <BR> <BR> I hesitantly weighed myself this morning. 136.4. I'm happy with that number. I know I'm gaining muscle, so an increase in pounds is ok, right? We'll see. I'm not freaking out over body f... Fri, 7 Feb 2014 02:09:06 EST The past month Ok, I know I've been MIA. Honestly? I've been disappointed in myself. That whole eating too much, possibly due to PMS? Yeah, it lasted throughout the entire month of December, and then into January as well! I finally got the courage last week to weigh myself. 142.4. Up 7 whole pounds. I needed that reality check. BUT, my clothes were fitting the same and I figured that body fat percentage and measurements would be more reliable. I think my personal trainer is going to do all that again in 2 w... Sat, 1 Feb 2014 23:39:22 EST What is wrong with me?? I haven't felt like this since July. All I want to do is eat, like non stop eating. I'm full and I want to eat. I'm bloated and stuffed and have a major food baby, but yet I still want to eat! I want sweets, I want carbs, I want cake, I want pie, I want sugar, I want pizza. OMG, pizza would be fantastic. Like if it wasn't Christmas, I'd highly consider going to the store and buying pizza, oh, or mac and cheese! Like holy crap, give it to me, NOW! <BR> <BR> I don't know what's wrong with me.... Thu, 26 Dec 2013 01:34:24 EST PMS question... So I'm in the medical field, I'm use to being blunt, sorry if this is too blunt for some of you! <BR> <BR> Unnecessary background info? I have PCOS. <BR> <BR> PMS has never affected me, I've never been hungrier during that time of the month, never craved chocolate or sugar, never got bloated, etc. <BR> <BR> The past few months? I think it's totally affecting me. So what's changed? I limited my sugar intake about a year ago and officially cut out chocolate (food sensitivity) around August.... Mon, 23 Dec 2013 11:57:15 EST And the results are in!! Major progress!! First, the weight: 135.4!! That's A HEALTHY BMI!!!!! AHH!!!! <BR> According to the gym, I've lost 11 lbs since joining there. Prior to Thanksgiving (11/15), I was 137.6, so in the past month, I've lost 2.2 lbs. Somehow, I must have lost the other 9 lbs in the 2-3 weeks prior to that. So since joining my new gym and starting personal training, I'm stoked with the results. You know what, I'm even pleased with "only" losing 2.2 lbs in the past month. I'm even more shocked to be at a healthy BMI!... Thu, 19 Dec 2013 11:55:53 EST Not fair! - updated So I was suppose to get my measurements taken, body fat percentage measured, flexibility testing remeasured, etc tomorrow (Wednesday); however, my PT texted me today to say that the lead PT scheduled someone during the time that I was suppose to meet with him. So... it's not getting done until Thursday morning. I had mentally prepared myself for this tomorrow (see previous blog entry), I was going to weigh myself at home first before going to the gym (my first weigh in since prior to Thanksgi... Wed, 18 Dec 2013 00:33:57 EST Wednesday... getting my measurements taken again So I met with my personal trainer today and it turns out we were suppose to do measurements and body fat percentage... but, of course, I did cardio beforehand so the body fat percentage reading would be inaccurate. So now I have to wait until Wednesday to know! Ugh! <BR> <BR> But I'm actually really nervous about it. I know my body fat percentage will be down, I mean, how can it not be? Doing ST 3x/week for 5 weeks? The measurements? Well, hopefully they'll be down. The scale is what I'm mo... Mon, 16 Dec 2013 11:58:21 EST Bring on the wine! .. Writing to figure things out Heads up: I'm 100% tipsy right now, so not sure if this will make sense, but, it is more for my own sake of mind than what others think, so... <BR> <BR> a) I'm hungry. I shouldn't be (or maybe I should?). I want to eat, but I know I shouldn't (or should I?) <BR> <BR> b) I didn't get that job "promotion". I'm not disappointed I didn't get it (it would be a pay cut, even with the 5% raise, it would still not be enough to counteract the shift diff of switching from 2nd to 1st shift), I'm more ... Mon, 16 Dec 2013 02:09:13 EST Note to self EAT LUNCH. <BR> <BR> That is all. <BR> <BR> Yesterday was a rough day. I woke up and had a great workout, but I was constantly fretting about not being able to check my work email from home to see if I got the job I applied for. I texted one of my coworkers to ask her to let me know if she heard anything about anyone getting the position. It turns out, someone did, and it wasn't me. It was the least likely person to get it, in my opinion (in everyone's opinion). But this isn't about that. I... Sat, 14 Dec 2013 12:25:31 EST Clothes shopping trip!!
