Went for my run yesterday and my coat felt a little heavier than usual. I figured it was because my wallet was in my pocket. Turns out I forgot to take my laundry money out of my pocket and I was running with about 20 quarters in my jacket 🤦🏻♀️
Your next run you’ll feel weightless!!
hahah just some extra endurance training :D :D
I feel completely humiliated after seeing my Dr. yesterday about my mental health concerns. After a 3 minute appointment consisting of about 6 questions, my Dr told me that "a lot of law students are just seeking medication to get an advantage". I cried for hours after that, but picked myself up to get in a half decent workout. I never mentioned anything about medication... he kept cutting me off and asking the next question and gave me no time to answer his questions properly. It took a lot for me to make that appointment and now I'm at a loss.
You need to see a different doctor. That's complete bullshit.
Time to find a new doctor! You shouldn't be shamed for asking for help.
I'll have to see what's out there... There are no doctors accepting patients where I live. I honestly just wanted to get a referral for free or low cost counselling... But he wouldn't listen to me, cut me off repeatedly and then ended the appointment after a few minutes. I maybe got to say a few sentences during the whole encounter.
The whole thing was so demoralizing. I couldn't even talk about my symptoms and then I got accused of drug seeking, without ever saying a single thing about medication.
Does your school have any sort of counseling program? I know at my school they are very concerned about law students' mental health and have a lot of programs and resources for them.
They do, but it's surprisingly limited considering the amount of time spent on emphasizing mental wellness. I think my best bet might be to connect with my partner's mental health program under his insurance.
One thing you could do is talk to the counselors/office at your school and see if they have any recommendations for practitioners outside of the school but in the area. If they can’t help you or fit you in at school, they can at least point you in the right direction! Most people are happy to help however they can!
Please find a mental health professional such as a licensed counselor. Physicians are not adequately trained in behavioral health.
See a different doctor if you can. And if you’re not interested in medicine. Say that up front.
I am sorry you went through this.
If you have the ability, I would consider seeing a mental health care professional/doctor who is not an MD. I've found that most psychiatrists are generally pompous, self-important assholes only interested in prescribing medication, monitoring it, and charging hundreds a session to do so. I had a much better experience with a Cognitive Behavior Therapist/Psychologist. Someone with this training can still refer you to a psychiatrist if you need medication, but they are focused on breaking down what tangible experiences or events are contributing to the the issues you are having and helping you find tools/coping mechanisms to deal with the things going on in your life. They still recognize that mental illness is a thing, and will definitely help you get help there if you need it, but even then, they are focused on helping you learn how to better recognize your emotions, break them down, and handle them in a productive way.
It's not a substitute for counseling, but I've found the Woebot app to be quite useful in helping me keep my thinking straight and grounded.
omg that's horrible, hope you're feeling better now. some doctors are really callous :/
On Wednesday afternoon, I was driving past a local daycare center and saw a red four square sized rubber ball bouncing around, and a bunch of kids standing at the daycare fence looking upset. I stopped the car and asked if it was theirs, they said yes and started asking me to throw it to them. So I got out of the car, grabbed the ball and jogged over to toss it to them. I have never been very good at throwing, so I put a LOT of effort and momentum into it.
The ball cleared the fence but my momentum carried me forward and I fell on my face in front of a bunch of little kids. And I hurt my calf so I am having to take a few days off of my Bootcamp classes to get back to 100%.
The kids were really cute and happy they got their ball back, at least!
Really sweet of you to stop and do that, though. You probably made their day by giving them the ball back
They were preschool aged and they were sooo excited and happy, it was honestly adorable.
Audibly farted during a sit-up in a crowded yoga class.
Died of embarrassment and am now a ghost.
RIP, fart ghost :D
But seriously, happens to everyone! shake it off ;)
Word. Plus if I was really that worried about embarrassing myself in front of other people, my clumsy ass wouldn't be in a crowded yoga class to begin with.
My SO broke my only pair of glasses although we are both at fault. We recently joined the same gym. We had gone to separate gyms before but moved and now we go to the same one. We were deadlifting together and I had put my glasses on my jumper which was next to my towel on the ground by the deadlift platform. I've always done this. It wasn't a problem since I used to go by myself and I always knew where they were. He was taking a 15kg plate off the bar and dropped it on my jumper before I could say anything. Moved the plate and my frames had snapped in half. He's buying me new glasses which will be ready next Friday! Haha funny and horrible at the same time. At least that pair was like 7 years old and I wanted new ones anyway.
Oh, I feel for you! I'm very much afraid of doing something like this at the gym. Whenever I get new glasses with my prescription update I put the old glasses in the sun glass holder in the car as a backup in case something like this were to happen.
That's smart! I only had the one pair of glasses. I never bought a backup and my prescription hasn't changed since I got my glasses. I've been wearing my prescription sunglasses even though it's still winter here and not that sunny or bright haha. I think from now on I'm going to take a glasses case with me and put them in that while I lift since I don't like exercising with them on but need them for getting to/from the gym and between exercises.
Sunglasses during the winter can be appropriate! If you're in a snowy place, you'll get snow glare. If you're in a cold place, some of the coldest days have the brightest skies. After 30+ years in UV-protected prescription glasses, switching to contacts has meant lots of sunglasses.
So I use Zenni and I get glasses like twice a year. I know some people like to go to offices and overpay by hundreds of dollars but I've literally never had a problem with them. If you want to spend more money for the same thing, Glasses USA is an option.
Oh cool, thanks for that! Are they available in the UK? I've already bought new glasses but I'll definitely keep this in mind if I'm going to buy a backup pair.
oh golly i really don't know. Glasses USA probably not but Zenni Optical is the website. It looks like they do. I like them because ven with my prescription my glasses cost 12.95. I bought some sunglasses that cost 30 with my perscription once, and thats about as expensive as they get/
Yesterday my backpack broke tragically while I was going from the gym to my class and my post workout dinner and protein shake and laptop/ textbooks flew out all over the street in a down pour. It took everything within me not to start crying while picking up the pieces of my Tupperware containing my dinner that was now on the ground and continue walking while holding my bag at my chest trying to keep things dry. I had to sit through my three hour lecture soaking wet and without dinner. A 3/10 day but I had a 10/10 workout and only 5 more pounds until I am done cutting.
Oh geez that's awful!! I hope today is infinitely better, and I hope you get a great dinner tonight!
Thank you! Everyone is so nice here and it's refreshing. I hope you have a great weekend and also have a great dinner anyway!
You poor thing! I hope there are plenty of 10/10 workouts AND days in your future!
Nothing funny or ironic today. Just bingeing and watching garbage TV and hating myself lately. It’s great.
Hoping to get back on track today and have a fun weekend with my little fam ☺️ Happy Friday everyone!
Anything in particular bothering you?
How sweet of you to ask. I have a young baby and adjusting to new mom life + having way less time to work out (and do everything else!) is super challenging...plus we just moved from my beautiful coastal home state to BFE southern US, which is a culture shock. So, just a lot at once. Doing ok though. I’ll get through it and it will make me stronger 💪🏽 Thank you. It helps to have someone listen.
I had the same experience last week! Didn't hit the gym once, literally ate halo top sundaes every night, and wallowed in self-pity. I probably gained 5 pounds over the week, but I'm back at it this week. Still wallowing, but I got to the gym and ate better which I think has helped my mood some. I hope you get back to feeling better soon! If you live in a cold climate, hopefully the coming spring helps :)
Well, u/goldstandardalmonds told me, u/FrauKoko told me, u/hazleweatherfield1 wanted updates, u/khaleesi_onthatbeat expressed concern, and I was happily able to say that I had no diarrhoea from the konjac I’ve been eating; that I’d been lucky to have not had an adverse reaction.
In my car.
It went everywhere.
Ugh, gorgeous. But I hate to say... I... told... y.. I won’t.
I TOLD YOU SO!!
There, I said it for you 😊
In future, I swear I will take all of your warnings very seriously indeed!
Thanks so much for sharing your experiences with konjac! It made me realize this is not something I should try, since I have irritable bowel syndrome.
If you already have IBS then konjac is not for you!
In your car???
Oh god. That's one of the worst possible scenarios. Then again, it could have been public transit... But you probably wouldn't be responsible for the cleanup, so maybe that would've been better.
I'm so sorry!
Oh my God, that sounds like a nightmare!
I was 40 mins from home, it was very unpleasant.
I literally kicked an old guy at my gym in the butt yesterday. By accident, I swear! I was doing glute kickbacks, which are a little obnoxious at my gym because there are only two machines on which to do this, and they face each other. I had to wait to do them last because the machines were taken up all morning. There's this old guy who comes into the gym every so often and he's ALWAYS wearing jeans and a sweater. Like why?? Anyways, I had one set of my kickbacks left, and he decides to do something on the other machine. I was trying really hard to not kick back too far (although I was quite irritated that he needed to do that right then instead of waiting like 3 minutes). So OF COURSE I accidentally kicked him in the butt. I blurted out I'm So Sorry!! He kinda just glared at me and pointedly moved further out from the machine to take up more space. I had a few reps left but decided to just leave and accept that my glute kickbacks were a fail!
That sounds like a gym-setup fail or an old guy not paying attention fail! Good thing no one got hurt.
Pros and Cons of food tracking?
I started tracking in January using MyFitnessPal and I have lost almost 30 lbs so far, but I'm getting kind of tired of tracking. I'm focusing on making better food choices and moving more. My biggest issue is/was binge eating junk food and to combat that I started having my groceries delivered so I'm not tempted to buy/consume junk.
Right now, my primary goal is to lose more weight (I'm 5'2" and currently at 242 so I have a ways to go).
I like tracking breaks. :-) Mine are usually 2 weeks for mental health reasons and I don't generally find I go hogwild on them because I do now have a better understanding of the food and portions I should be aiming at.
Congrats on your weight loss! 💪🏼😊
Personally I've been tracking my intake on/off for years and have been very successful whenever I've been diligently doing it. Whether it's hitting protein goals or calories. I fall off the wagon whenever I stop for longer than a few weeks. It gets easier as well, since most people eat mostly the same things and you just start to multi add them to your diary.
If you're tired of doing all that work, I'd suggest spending a week or so really getting a feel for how much is what, portion sizes etc. Then stop tracking for a couple of weeks and see which direction your weight goes. Then reevaluate.
There's also other apps you could try that may not feel as tedious as myfitnesspal. You could take pictures of your meals/snacks without inputting or logging any calories so you don't lose an overview of how much/little you already are! (I tend to forget things I've had during the day if I don't somehow log them)
When I take a break, it quickly turns into a binge and regaining a lot of weight. I'm 5 2" and the only time I'm not gaining weight is when I'm tracking
My leggings keep falling/shrugging themselves down, and I can’t tell if it’s because they’re getting looser or tighter!
Left my gym clothes in the shower area last night. No sign of them today..
Some of my favorites, plus my pretty nice running shoes. 😭 And a cute pair of panties that matches my favorite bra.
All my workouts this week have been shit since Monday. I was able to get them done, but they didn’t feel as effortless (and fun) as they usually do. These are cardio workouts I’m referring to - running and swimming. Not sure whether I want to try for my lifting days or take a rest until next week.
I’m leaning towards skipping my remaining cardio day (longer run, 5 miles) and doing my lifting days in hopes they’re better.
You’re still doing them, which is 90% of the battle!
I think it's the time change! All my runs this week have felt like shit too.
I say take it easy. Sometime skipping a run is ok, especially if you aren't raining for a specific race. A lot of times the extra rest really helps give you a mental break or your body just just needs an actual break, and your next run feels so much better for it. Why run or swim or workout if you are miserable not not having fun right? Got to stop and ask yourself why are you doing these things sometimes :)
Just ate a greasy falafel sandwich with french fries inside of it. Sometimes you just need a break from a cut. 🤷♀️
Just a rough week overall. I didnt get my usual number of workouts in and i ate lots of things that are not necessarily the best for me (mentally/emotionally the best, physically not haha). I'm a PhD candidate going through internship applications. I didnt match in phase 1, when i had 5 interviews and had to fly all over the place. So in phase 2, no flying, just skype and phone. In the past two weeks ive had 13 interviews. In addition to working at a psych hospital with children, doing research assistant work, doing my own research, meal prep, keeping house clean and organized, laundry, and trying to hit my workouts. Oh and showering occasionally. I ended up sleeping in (till 6) most mornings instead of getting up and going to the gym first. My brain is tired. I need a vacation. And i need to not take my stress out on my boyfriend 😬 ready for a new week!!
You have a LOT on your plate! Hang in there!
Yesterday I was set to do standing calf raises but every time I was ready to do them the Smith machine was occupied. Finally, I ran out of other options and time so I set a step up in front of the power rack to use the barbell. I've done it before with no issues, although I prefer the Smith for this work, but for some reason, yesterday, I was struggling. I did one set with 125 pounds but was really struggling with staying balanced on the stepper. I set up to do my second set, stood up, took a step back, ground my toes into the stepper, started to come down on my heels, readjusted, started to come down again, readjusted. Re-racked the bar. Re-set. Took a step back, ground my toes into the stepper, came down, readjusted, and then said, "ah, fuck it" racked my weights and went home.
Not sure what my deal was. My balance was off and I wasn't feeling stable for some reason, but I just saw myself losing my footing, tipping back off the ledge and cracking my skull open. Then I saw my husband laughing and shaking his head and calling me a stubborn-ass mule. He already thinks I'm a nut job for the stuff I tell him I do at the gym, no sense in giving him more ammo. My gut told me to just put it away for the day, so I did...
I think it's very important to listen to your gut! You did the right thing!
Wondered why I was so dang hungry all week without having any additional calories left in MFP. Went in to log for next week and realized I put my 200 cal serving of chicken in twice every single day for lunch instead of just the one serving I actually ate. I guess maybe it'll offset my rough weekend before!
I woke up late for work again! I didn't brush my hair or do my makeup, I dressed and ran off. For someone that is always "put together" for work being barefaced and frizzy is stressing me out. Just told two people I'm sick, I'm not. 😒
The first two sentences made me think this was a victory, tbh!
Ugh this is me. I have red splotchy cheeks normally and hide/neutralise them with makeup. I used to not wear makeup on casual Friday but then people would ask what’s wrong with my face :/ Finding a mineral powder with enough coverage has been a massive time saver.
Ugh, 😑 I have a yeast infection - Work out was awful yesterday I had to deload squat, couldn’t do any OHP, skipped deadlifts because I felt like CRAP. So I ran 3 miles really really slowly because I’m sure that will make things better. 😑
Hi I highly recommend this, and my gyno recommends it as well.
I'm very sensitive to antibiotics and I swear my boyfriend has the highest pH cum in the world, and occasional use has also helped with preventing yeast infections.
Last figure skating class I ate it hard...doing a bunny hop. Like fully spread out on my side on the ice, laying like a sad, cold, bruised Burt Reynolds.
Needless to say, the six year olds practicing toe loops on the ice next to me were not impressed.
I have my first race tomorrow and my gastrointestinal system is freaking the fuck out.
I'm so far behind on my half marathon training and I was really hoping tomorrow would be a good metric for I should just speedwalk the thing.
Two nights ago, I slept horribly, and have been going through some difficult things lately. That next day, as I was deadlifting, the weights felt much heavier than they usually did, and I guess the stress got to me because I started tearing up and nearly started crying at the gym while thinking about some sad stuff. People definitely noticed. It didn't help my emotions that I'm also due for my period soon/PMSing. All in all, it was very very embarrassing :/
I had the worst chair lift experience of my life while snowboarding last weekend. First off, I have a lot of anxiety about getting off a chair lift - my ability to snowboard in general is not well correlated with my ability to successfully get off a chair lift. Secondly, I was riding at a new to me resort that has the old school chair lifts that don't slow down when you get off. Third, we have had so, so, so much snow this winter that the resort staff hasn't been able to keep up with digging out the lifts entirely and there was an uphill slope getting off the chair to contend with.
With that said, I got stuck getting off the chair lift and got DRUG AROUND to the other side, somehow missed the emergency stop lever that you're supposed to automatically trigger when you get drug around, and ended up falling off the chair. Luckily, I was only a few inches off the ground when I fell, but it was still terrifying! Plus, the lifties were absolutely useless and never stopped the lift. A guy on the chair with me had to ski over and kick the emergency stop, while the people in charge of stopping it yelled at me alternately to "get up and move" and "stay down." It was awful, I ended up completely having a breakdown and sobbing in front of the crowd that gathered.
I eventually got my shit together and had a great day snowboarding, but that experience definitely did not help my chair lift anxiety. Uggghhh.
Chair lift dismount always freaks me out as a snowboarder - so jelly of the skiers who can just stand up and off they go. I ride goofy so always try to position myself on the outer right hand side of the chair so I can peel away easily on my heelside edge if things go pear-shaped (I hate it when there are newbies on the chair with me - I’m an ok rider but not great, and don’t have the maneuvering skills to avoid getting caught up when other people stack it getting off the lift, been taken out way too many times by someone falling into me or grabbing me for balance and pulling me over).
It's funny, I ride regular, but I also prefer the right side so I can go on my toe edge when I'm getting off. I'm frequently tempted to switch to skiing for the chairlift reasons. But then I watch my husband walk through the parking lot in ski boots, carrying his skis and poles, and I decide that the tradeoff is worth it.
IKR? Snowboard boots might not be street wear, but they seem comfy AF compared to ski boots. The whole inadvertent-splits thing and yard sale of equipment going everywhere when people stack it puts me off skiing too LOL - I like that my feet can’t go anywhere, and I’ve only got one bit of gear to really worry about.
Eek I am so scared of chairlifts 😥😥😥
Oh man, i’m so sorry that happened! Getting off the lift might be the hardest part of snowboarding. I’ve been snowboarding for 15 years and have had my fair share of chairlift trauma.
A couple weeks ago I got off a lift that had a long steep downward ramp and the person next to me accidentally pushed me off the side. I landed in soft snow but strained my MCL :(
In January I didn’t get out of the way quick enough upon dismount and the lift swung around and hit me in the back of the head.
Seriously! It is so hard. Your incidents totally suck, I'm sorry!
My OHP and my bench press have been stalled and it makes me feel sad. Today is shoulder day and OHP are my very first exercise. I've been doing 55lbs for 10 reps what seems like forever. I want to go up in weight! I know if I go up another 5-10 pounds my reps will go down and right now I need to push out 10-12 reps/set. As for my bench press, that's been at 95lbs for a long time too, again this is normally 8-12 reps but I can barely make it to the minimum 8. Meanwhile, my incline DB bench press continue to go up.
Progress is never linear. As much as we would all like for all our lifts to go up steadily and consistently, it’s normal for maybe one or two lifts to take precedence while the others just maintain and then it will switch after a while. It is really hard mentally to see that, but if your incline dumbbell bench is still going up, you’re still making progress.
I’ve been sick all week and missing my workouts. I thought I’d be okay today and ended up not finishing my workout. :(
Hang in there, you're almost there! I absolutely hate being sick and had to sit off for 8 days earlier last month. But you need to rest to come back quicker :/
I’ve lost 27kg recently and was feeling svelte. Then I saw the social media photos from a networking event this week where I’m slouched and hunched over and looking definitely not svelte 😭 I wondered, how can this be!? I look stellar in my bathroom mirror. Answer: the influencers are right, it’s all about posture.
I can't stop eating and it's making me feel like a blob - I weighed in at #114.6 yesterday (5'5) so I think I might need to work on body issues, because obvs I am not fat.
I failed a bench press and could only get the bar to the lower rack spot. But the real fail came when I laid down for second set and bonked my head on the bar! It was loud!!!
On Monday I finished running on the treadmill and took a super graceful hop forward and to the right to get off. The mat had mostly stopped, but I underestimated the amount of space I had in front of me and hit my left hip on the arm of the machine. Since it is a work gym, I had coworkers and people from other related agencies to see it and hear me swear super loudly. 4 days later, the bruise is still red, black, and angry. Theres a sort of hard lump when I press down.
I had to do a mock pt test today and as I'm getting out soon and my last test was in August I literally did the worst I've ever done. But on the bright side, Air Force PT test has no bearing on actual fitness or health so :-/
I've also been counting calories more or less and I started out a few weeks ago at 2000 and now I'm down to 1700 but I still will have a few hundred left over each day. I can probably go down to like 1600 or 1500. I can't always follow the calories because of my issues but I sometimes can go three days straight following calories. Next week my goal is to follow them Mon-Fri and Sunday, but we will see. A 5 day streak would be so cool. I realized that a lot of my BDD comes from having to phone count calories, so I created my own chart and have a binder and it's not too bad. I just have to remember to stop following when I want.
You mean doing 2 minutes of sit-ups isn’t the be all and end all to indicate fitness? 🤷🏼♀️
Lol yeah surprisingly. I can do 5 pullups, I can deadlift over 250 lbs, I can bike 40 miles straight at 18-22mph without stopping, I can bench press over 140 lbs, but yeah I got an 85 because I'm NoT PhYsIcAlY FiT
Spring is here! I'm so excited to be able to experience the season in my new, healthy body. Went for a walk, took off my coat halfway through, and got immediately cat called >:(.
Also for some reason my bike is splashing up so much water up on me while I ride if it's just a teensy bit wet, so I have to spend 5 minutes after getting to work washing mud off my coat. I didn't realize this the first time it happened, I ate at a restaurant while looking like a crapped my pants.
Last fail friday I saved a few too many calories for booze and got blackout drunk at a concert....lesson learned!
I've been stuck at home for an entire week (I work and work out at home), save for a short walk. All because of the crazy wind. Thankfully I had my workouts and talking with family (as well as my cat roommate and Brooke Ence vlogs) to lighten me up. Plus I got a lot of music work done because what else would I do... Anyway, the wind is cooling down on Sunday so I'm thinking of going out for burgers and fries for brunch right after my workout and it seems all sunny and better from Tuesday on!!
I wore a pair of bulky heavier running shoes on the elliptical and my workout felt twice as hard. Which seems nice but my legs are like jello and I have no idea how many calories I burned because the machine doesn't really account for that kind of thing.
I’ve been watching my eating like a hawk and doing strong curves and the scale is stubbornly staying at 143. I feel flabby and yucky and hangry and the prospects of eating less or cardio-ing more are equally unappealing. I was really hoping to turn things around and be at my goal weight by spring but I guess that’s not happening.
The fail I was going to mention was eating a bunch of brie at my office happy hour yesterday but then I had kale and lentils for dinner so I guess it wasn’t a complete mess.
Trying to get in shape is dredging up allllll kinds of feels. Blah.
I audibly farted while teaching a yoga class today. Twice.
