Day 40: Out of Control

Sunday, September 30, 2012

Yesterday I topped the charts when it comes to calories for the past couple of months. Actually I have been over on my calories every day this week - not much most days, but still over. I need to get back on track before I spiral completely out of control. I've been trying to exercise a lot to balance out the extra intake, but I'm not sure if it's working.

Adding in new foods has yielded difficult results so far. My body doesn't seem to like gluten or sugar (big surprises). Jury is out on soy and dairy - they both sort of seem ok so far, at least in low doses. My naturopath actually says that if you grow up eating soy products (as most Asians do), the tendency is to be able to tolerate soy in your adult diet. I hope that's true, since I feel a bit limited these days.

Tomorrow I start my new crazy teaching schedule - five classes a week at two different schools. Plus I'll still be working my other jobs. I am concerned about my ability to keep up the good habits I have been trying to establish with this crazy new schedule. I'm trying to see it as an opportunity to have more structure to my schedule, but I know it will be a challenge.

My partner and I have decided to try couples' counseling again. We're trying a new person with a new method, called compassionate communication (a mindfulness-based approach to couples' counseling). Keep your fingers crossed...

    We have been here a long time, since 2007. Not many of us still working at it, so GIVE YOURSELF CREDIT.

    Listen to the YOUTUBE series with Robert Lustig M.D. "THE SKINNY ON OBESITY". I'm reading "THE SUGAR FIX" by Richard Johnson M.D. and recommend it to everyone. He has a wonderful lecture on YouTube. I've learned so much from him.
