Workout Wednesday: IIFYM Week #13

Phew – this week (aka the last two days) has been KILLER. I’m so tiredddddd, but time to talk about my last week or so in workouts.

Workout Wednesday

… They sucked and this has just become ridiculous. I need to figure something out. I’m actually scheduling a meeting with a dietitian soon. My overeating issues (I hate calling it binge eating … so I don’t … but that’s basically what it is) are back and as much as I love my boyfriend, he can he thousands (literally) more calories than me so it’s a struggle. Relationships make diets hard!

I was on point last Wednesday, but Thursday came and I definitely overate (in “celebration” for leaving my job). Then Friday came and I ate very few calories during the day, then went out to eat with my sister and then got extremely sick. Saturday I was extremely sick to my stomach ALL day. Sunday I was starving so I ate probably more than I should. Monday – overrate. Tuesday… probably ate close to my calories but didn’t count. UGH.

Now, I know this isn’t the end of the world, but my goal in JANUARY was to be under a certain weight by June 1. And it wasn’t an astronomical weight. And I’m UP instead. 🙁 Yes, yes, yes, I know weight doesn’t mean everything and I’d love to pretend it’s because I’m gaining muscles … but I’m not… it’s fat. Yes, it is more difficult for me to lose weight because of my hypothyroidism, but I lost 40 lbs at one point … I can drop weight if I try, but I have to be extremely consistent. Okay, moving on …

These were a bit all over the place, but my life kind of went crazy. I didn’t workout on Thursday, but I did on Friday. Didn’t on Saturday, but did on Sunday. Didn’t on Monday, but did on Tuesday … so 🙂 Also, I started at a new gym, so that’s exciting!

How it’s going:
Again, I’m not being consistent, so it’s all over the place. I’ll actually be writing a post on Thursday that’s a bit more in depth about how I’m feeling about my body. And it will be honest.

I haven’t weighed myself in a few weeks because I know I’m up in weight and I don’t want it to mess with my head. I plan to weigh myself on Thursday, though, just so I stop pretending like it’s not happening haha!

What do you do when you KEEP falling off track?

    I totally understand your struggle with overeating . I get into the habit of overeating or constantly snacking when I have anxiety/PMS/boredom/some combination of these . I have been trying to listen to my body and stop eating when I’m full but it is hard to do sometimes. I pack a bunch of healthy snacks and portions for work to try and help this cycle . It’s always nice to not feel alone with your struggles . Thanks for sharing .

    Ugh, I totally understand how being in a relationship doesn’t always help reaching those weightless goals. After my wedding in October I have gained a lot of weight and I was like saying to myself “eh, I’m married whatever…” now I look at myself and I’m like SHOOOOOOOOT! It’s so not fair that boys can eat so much more then us….I feel ya girl!

      It’s such a struggle especially because they can eat SO much more than us usually! Ugh, it’s the worst. Glad you understand, even though I hate that anyone else feels like this!

    I look forward to your post Thursday! I’m sure it’s hard to be honest about it and you kind of brush over things on the blog, but I think it’s important to actually get those things out. It definitely is hard having different eating goals than the person you’re with! Jon and I are eating way different right now and it’s weird. Maybe you guys can try eating out less? I have no control when good food is around and will eat anything if it’s available. It’s so easy at home, where everything is controlled and I just don’t buy the things I don’t want to eat!

      I struggle with not going out to eat because it’s so much fun! But it’s definitely something I need to cut out. Now my new job offers free lunch and snacks so that’s a struggle, too! BUT I’m going to try. My post tomorrow is going to be super authentic and hopefully I don’t rub anyone the wrong way!
