This week, I felt very bad. This had to do mostly with my hormones and with exams. This bad period affected my food intake but luckily, it was going better already near the end of the week.
Friday evening I went to a restaurant with my boyfriend for his dad’s birthday. I calculated everything in properly during the day, I didn’t eat too much and I had 1100 calories left. It was impossible to calculate everything. I had no idea which sauces were in the dishes. I didn’t worry about it too much. If I stayed within 1100 calories? I have no idea!
Saturday, everything went well. In the evening, I ate a scoop of ice cream at the Lokerse Feesten as a cheat of the day.
Sunday I wanted to start the day well with protein waffles but they failed so badly that I gave up. I had been tinkering for at least an hour to get the mixture off the waffle iron. After that, I just made a cheat day out of it because in the evening, we were having guests and it was hard to calculate my macros again.
Monday I started the day well but at night (you can guess it already), there was a party at my friends parents and I felt really bad that day. There was the second real cheat day!
Tuesday, breakfast were left overs from the day before and I didn’t even try to calculate because it was too hard. I still didn’t feel really good mentally, that’s why I decided that I wouldn’t be too hard on myself (yes you’re right, third cheat day)!
When I woke up on Wednesday, I finally felt better. I didn’t have a morning mood (like I have regularly) so that was a good start already. I calculated everything in and in the evening, I could even calculate an ice cream in (and that was also my only cheat)!
Thursday, my macros were perfect again. I have confidence in it again!
Saturday I started over the beginner yoga challenge from Kino. Because I am a little bit more experienced now, I did four videos.
Monday, I went to the gym with my boyfriend. I always think it’s nice when I have a companion to go train. We did a full body workout and I had a sick pump in my arms! We were both sore the next day. Tuesday, I did day 5, 6, 7 and 8 of th beginner yoga challenge. I notice some good progress already in comparison with the first time I did the videos, yippie!
Like I said before, I did very bad mentally at one moment this week. I had crying fits and after that I often binged. You can guess it already: I suffered from my hormones. Next to that, the studying is resenting to me but I don’t want to give up. Still I have to remind myself sometimes that life doesn’t consist of studying alone. I have to learn to not let it offend me so much.
Goals next week
Next week I want to try to keep calm mentally. I noticed that yoga really helps me to controlF myself better in more difficult situations. I then think to myself ‘it’s not worth it to worry about it because that doesn’t take me anywhere’ and then I try to, in stead of fretting, think about something else.
I am going to try to stay within my macros but to me, my mental state is more important at the moment so I won’t worry about it too much if I don’t succeed for one day. I hope to go to the gym three times next week and to do yoga almost every day.
My week didn’t went very well but that means that next week can only go better! I go into the next week with a positive attitude!
