Bodyrock 30 day challenge- Day 5!
Saturday, January 07, 2012
Today I had some catching up to do... so I did 4 & 5. I kinda felt like sh!t for the first part of the day... here is why:
I'm making a decided effort to cut out my glass of wine on weeknights. There's really no reason for it and it's just a dumb habit that is doing me no favors. So starting on Monday January 2nd I just... stopped. Felt no different really, but I felt good that I was doing it! The Friday night , Mr. and I went out to dinner and I had a glass with dinner and one when we got back home, and GUESS WHAT. I woke up late with a headache this morning and felt like crap for a good part of the day. What?! Anyway. I finally got my butt up and did days 4 and 5 since I didn't do them yesterday. SO SO glad that I did it. Something that has been bothering me this past holiday season though...
My eating has really got to even out. I used to battle with restrictive eating and it was pretty intense... like, an actual eating disorder for about 7 years. For the past year and a half I've reeaaaalllly gained some perspective and a sense of normalcy, but when it comes to holiday or party situations, my brain is like... "uh-oh no way no way no way" and I'm back into that old pattern of restrictive eating, and then when I get home or return to a normal schedule, my body is so starved that I get this "fu*k it" mentality where I'll just eat however much of whatever I want just to.... I don't know... show myself what's up? I really have no idea, but I do know that it just throws me entirely off track and thwarts all of my hard work when I don't listen to what my body wants and nourish myself with good, whole foods. Today was a really good day on that front! and it's those good days that fill me with a sense that I CAN do this on a normal day to day basis.
Tomorrow is an active rest day, so I will clean clean clean this apartment since we have been traveling on the weekends for 3 straight months! aaaaand I will do either yoga or pilates, then grocery shop for good clean foods, and then batch cook for the coming week. Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!
