I feel good...

I’m not stressing about my macros. I track 90% of the time. If I’m still legit hungry at the end of the day, I’ll have a little more.

Honestly, leahpwest’s comment on this really hit home for me a while back - track to make sure you eat enough. Don’t worry so much about going over.

I’m never going to have a perfect body. But you know what, I like what I have going right now. Not flawless. I’m okay with that.

I’ve finally learned that anytime I do anything too strictly, it revolts against me. If I go too Paleo, any slip-up looks like 30 lbs. Same with Zone or no sugar or whatever. I think I’ve finally found the right amount of moderation.

And hey, that may mean frozen yogurt everyday, but how else will I hit my calcium ;) ?

I don’t hit my micronutrients 100% of the time. Vitamin A and C are almost always above, but I’m happy if I can get to at least 50% with calcium, potassium, and iron. I eat my veggies and nutrient dense foods. I use food to fuel my workouts. But in there I find room for treats that my body can tolerate. And it’s a wonderful thing. It’s not perfect. I’m not perfect. But it’s what works for me.

Most importantly, I found that being so stressed about hitting my macros 100% everyday was actually bad for me. That stress was bad. I would weigh protein powder and bananas trying to get those last few grams in at the end of the night. Is that necessary? Probably not. At least not for me.

Not stressing about it has caused me to actually feel better about myself.

And finally, I think I’m done weighing myself for a while. It’s amazing how 1.4 lbs added to my weight can make me feel like a failure. Why? For what purpose am I beating myself up over a silly number IF I feel good. And I do. Why let a weight gain without body fat loss make me feel less proud of myself? So I’m done. Maybe I’ll hop on now and again, but I just don’t (want to) care about those numbers anymore.

I care that I have the guts to wear a Savage Swim bikini and feel good about myself.

I care that I can back squat 68% of my max for 3x10.

I care that I PR’d my 20 rep max CTB by almost a minute.

Does it matter how much I weigh if that’s improving? Probably not. Definitely not.

Maybe this doesn’t apply to you. Maybe you’re stuck living by the scale. Maybe you’re too hard on yourself. Hopefully we can all be a little bit happier today.

Supper was not pretty enough for Instagram (sweet potato, burger, green beans) but macros were kCal 611 // C 47 // F 32 // P 29

Completely psyched because today I bought CRUSH!!! A little ahead of time because enthusiasm, but once exam horrors finish next week and I hear what the doctor says about my heart, it’ll be 60 days of domination!!!!!!

9:30pm was an appropriate dinner time, right? Somehow I managed to only consume ~1240 cals today with decent macros and I feel completely satisfied. I could eat more, but I’m not actually hungry. Please note I don’t always eat this low. I’m just trying to break my stupid plateau and win my DietBet. I’m beat though and can’t wait to go to bed after some stretching and a shower. Have a good night everyone.
