24 January 2015

So, another healthy week: healthy eating and healthy feeling. My daily RDI is higher but I know what my goal has been: to eat for gut health. Besides, 99% of what I consumed (including the yogurt) was homemade so the calorie count could well be off.

I've continued with PT exercise and no aerobic workouts in order to ensure my joints are safe when I finally do return to aerobic exercise.

And my weight is basically the same.

So: I consider this a successful week.

On the emotional side of life... Well, that's been successful - and just plain FULL. I've been connecting with people in healthy ways. But all this connection is leading to lots of feelings and I have a difficult time with feelings.

I've felt frustration, jealousy, happiness, love, excitement, fear, sadness, anger... And I've been confused sometimes.

I bottled some of the feelings up with over-consumption of TV or lazing in bed. I'm tempted to say I have the winter blues but that doesn't ring true. I think it's just this inability and unwillingness to feel and express.

But I'm working on it with friends, family, support group. I have lots of support and none of this is overwhelming. I'm just writing it down here in order to check in with you, my buddies.

I'm enjoying my acting class so far (one class last Monday) and it's given me a whole new outlet for creativity and feelings. My self-expression is ALREADY impacted simply because I've seen myself and others in a new light.

At work I'm setting boundaries firmly but (for the most part) not aggressively.

So, things are, all-in-all, going well. And winter will be over in a few months - it always ends ;-). And life will go on.

Reading a lovely book: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. If you're looking for a good read, I recommend it.

While I'm not yet reporting a weight loss and I AM reporting an end to the gas crisis of 2015. Wow, that took a while but my tummy is finally feeling better. No more constant belching and other issues. But here's my lesson: some things just take a little time and patience. I'll continue to go easy on my digestive tract for the coming week and hope that balance is restored and healing continues.

This past week I've not been able to eat my emotions so I've been feeling a lot of them: anxiety, fear, frustration, excitement, insecurity. They all sorta blended together and I had to just sit with them. Well, I didn't actually "have to" sit with them. I chose to sit with them rather than reach for - oh, I don't know....cheese, chocolate, carbs. So, I have learned that I actually DO have the capability to sit with uncomfortable emotions. I don't need to act out.

All that said, I actually did consume a bit more TV than normal. BUT, I also did my PT exercises and spoke to trusted friends about the feelings.

Things are busy at work and when I get home I rarely want to sit here and write a lot (though that is a tool that can also help me). But I do check in with peeps here and I rest...as much as possible. I am honoring the demands of my body.

So glad you are here so I have some interaction with people on this topic.

I'm not sure how that happened except I wasn't worried about weight. I was pretty much focused on getting through my period without too much pain and eating according to SCD. These past two weeks I've had a lot of bloating and indigestion without too much hunger so I guess that helped, though it was mighty uncomfortable at times.

This next week my plan is to go back to the first steps of SCD and just consume chicken soup, mashed carrots and yogurt/banana for breakfast. The gas & indigestion has been supremely uncomfortable and I hope this will calm things down again.

***addendum***

So, after I recorded the weigh-in and comments, I submit it and here's what FS tells me:

"You lost 4.6 lb (2.5 %) since you last weighed in on Monday 29 Dec 14.
At that rate it will take you about 4 days to get to your goal weight."

So, there you have it kids, I'll be fine in 4 days! Hehehe....and then I can set a NEW goal!

Have a great day,
Weigh-in: 181.4 lb lost so far: 2.6 lb still to go: 1.4 lb Diet followed reasonably well
