So I’m concerned about my digestive and heart health after 5 years of abusing my body. I know some hings still aren’t right and it worries me I might be unknowingly ignoring something. I found this amazing, full body and mind health test on Bupa…. 800! What?! I don’t know what to do… I really want a comprehensive all clear…

Note to self

If your stomach is rumbling,
Don’t check how many calories you’ve eaten,
Don’t check how many calories you’ve burned,
Don’t check what macros you’ve had,
Don’t check your weight,
Don’t check your previous days intake,
Don’t check it’s okay with someone else,
Don’t check your supposed BMR,
Don’t check if someone else would,
Just eat something.

Recovery Day #503

Things are goong in a pretty positive direction at the moment - I realised that I was letting my need to control my intake was getting even worse than normal, and so were my feelings of guilt around food, just because I ate a little more than usual and a little more ‘unclean’ than usual last sunday when we were out. I worked out that for what was probably about 200/300 calories-ish more than normal I had ‘compensated’ by eating about 200 calories less every day for the following 3 days. Sure the first day after I was less hungry, but I’d be kidding myself if I pretended that was the reason after that. 600 calories less for 300 more doesn’t work - not to mention the body is more complex than that anyway. So I gave myself a good telling off and a spoonful of peanut butter and got back into the swing of things. I told myself before I would never eat less than 2000 calories, and whilst I only got just under that like 1900, I still let myself down there. I want to be active and happy and healthy and trying to limit myself won’t achieve that.
Knackered today after little sleep and a long work day yesterday, so not sure whether to go to the gym, work out at home, or simply rest? Can’t tell if its my mind or body that’s weak :L
However what I do in is after work I have free coyo to pick up :’) oh happy days!

How did it go sweetie at the gym? You don't need an mot to be healthy and happy though remember, you're not a car x

A happy hippy :3 Answer:

Thank you for asking, and for your reassurance :) I’ve written all about it in my last update xo

Recovery day #502

So my MOT went alright actually. The girl doing is was lovely and really reassuring, she said I was fit and healthy and she’d be happy with my results if she were me. I think she was quite concerned about my reactions to some of the results because she kept asking if I was going to have something to eat before using the gym, even when I insisted that I had in fact had breakfast. Its good that they look out for you though.

• my blood pressure is even lower than before so its gone from good to really good
• my blood sugar has gone from good to really good
• my cholesterol was still low
• I’d gained 2kg, she thinks in muscle, but I know last time I went I lost 2kg destroying myself with a dangerous teatox so… im back to the weight I wad on my first MOT which is fine because I’m maintaining and I have gained muscle
• my VO2 Max had gone from excellent to really good. She said that it can vary day to day, but it might be because I’m doing less cardio. I was dissapointed but she said it was no bad thing - the HIIT cardio I’m doing is good and I’m doing enough, and I’m not getting less healthy just changing my path from cardio to strength, and I can afford to do so. So that was comforting. She did suggest I push my intervals up and do high intensity strength training if I fancy a change.
• everything else was good and much of the same. Theyve changed the scoring system so I can’t compare to the previous 2 scores, but thats okay because I like that I can improve from here.

My obsessing and food rules have gotten bad recently after some weight fluctiations so I am trying hard to push myself. I’ve chosen a chai latte on my break because it’s like my favourite drink and its now vegan friendly at costa but its twice the cals of my normal coffee so I never chose it. But I did, with a nice shot of espresso to get me through a long day. I am also going to make sure to never order another sugar frer syrup, thanks to the inspiration of naturalteaparty :) and no oil spray ever again, just a little good healthy oil.

Recovery Day #501

Got my 3 month health MOT at the gym today and I’m a little nervous about it. Last time I set the bar so high and I don’t really feel like I earned that score, so now I’m worried it will only go down or it was a fluke. And my weight is still higher from a couple of days ago, and still bloated so my measurements will be more :s and I feel like some how I’m getting worse or lazier… I don’t know. I guess I’m being too hard on myself and it shouldn’t even matter so much… but it would be nice to get another free month for improving my score. I guess I’m just prepared to feel disheartened and dissapointed.
On a happier note, when I get back I’m making jam tarts then meeting a friend for coffee, so that will be a nice pick me up :)
