It seems unfair that the world keeps spinning around us as we deal with tragedies.
But that's how it goes, the fat cells and muscle fibers don't care what day it is or what is going on in the world.
Like my PT has told me with my "degenerative disc disease, bony spurring, anterolisthesis, pars defects, and multilevel spondylosis" I have to manage it. It's not going away and the world isn't going to stop turning while we deal with whatever we have to deal with.
We don't have to be perfect, but if you are looking for that scale to go down it's all about your food in a 24 hour period, extended out 7 days, 30 days, 60 days, and finally 90 days. You need a block of 90 days with all "treats" absolutely planned out and measured out on a TDEE day.
That's just how it it is. It doesn't matter what else is going on. There is only door number one and door number two. There is no door number three. You either do it or you don't.
There will be those moments when you feel so miserable that you think you don't care about what you want, you just want the food.
That is where the rubber hits the road. Plan ahead for those moments. Don't wait for those moments to happen and then react, because we all react with eating the ice cream or whatever it is in front of you, tempting you.
Think ahead. Plan ahead. You know the temptation and mood will be there.
What are YOU going to do to fix that situation? No one can do it for you, and likely no one will be there to talk you out of it. It's up to you. The forum is a great place to tell the story and get support, but in the moment, it's you.
Will you have symbols and reminders, notes in your pockets, calenders with stickers, chants and sayings? That is all up to you to create your vision board.
Yesterday I had an early PT appointment, then I had other appointments, errands, a workout to do, and Sheriff training until late at night.
I had to scramble in the morning and think ahead. I packed all the food I would need for the day, perfectly measured and planned out.
