Yikes!

Busy, busy, busy!

Staying good, had a couple of cheats over the holiday weekend, but back on track with not too much damage done…two steps forward, one back. But hey, at least it’s still forward progress albeit slow!

Walked two miles with the little one today…Zumba and Pound tomorrow evening :)

Did Pound instead of Zumba on Monday (I know, shocker right???) with thirty minutes of strength training both before AND afterword. I did my whole body, and I am super sore in the leg and butt region.

On Periods: Let’s put this shit to bed right now: Women don’t lose their minds when they have period-related irritability. It doesn’t lower their ability to reason; it lowers their patience and, hence, tolerance for bullshit. If an issue comes up a lot during “that time of the month,” that doesn’t mean she only cares about it once a month; it means she’s bothered by it all the time and lacks the capacity, once a month, to shove it down and bury it beneath six gulps of willful silence.

Why us it so difficult…

To hit 1200+ calories in a day when low carbing?
Two days since Saturday alone I have consumed less than 750 calories for the entire day.
I KNOW that it’s bad to get such a low intake, but is it really, if it’s less than three days a week?
Intermittent fasting works for some, perhaps I just lean that way naturally…because, I’m NOT hungry, and I wont eat within four hours of bedtime. PERIOD.
I hold onto food at night WAY too easily. But I eat regularly throughout the day (90% of the time). I NEVER skip breakfast, although since I began training in the mornings I eat a much lighter morning meal before (just enough to get my metabolism woken up) and then after I have a good sized meal with a sizable amount of protein for my muscles…
I welcome any suggestions from the Tumblr community. Leave it in my ask. I am interested in learning more about the intermittent fasting, and what that entails.

On another note, Zumba this morning followed by a five mile walk with two of those miles being an aggressive hike (carrying my five year old uphill) so I am WICKED sore tonight, not to mentioned horrendously sunburned! Ouch.
