    phew!!! that was a lot of journals to catch up on. i didn’t get to everyone and i apologise for that :(

    if anyone is interested, i am still doing this low cal/cycling thing. no binges. the refeed days help a lot, but some of the low cal days have been a real struggle, and i have eaten more on those days. i really don’t want to start up the whole restrict/binge cycle again, so if i am hungry, i eat!! i won’t have as good fat loss results this way, but it is more important not to binge than shave off an extra 0.1% body fat or whatever :) not binging is still my highest priority.

    it’s going to be another while before i can get online again as i am away next weekend, but hopefully i can keep up a bit more during the week. much love to all xoxox

    just thought i would pop in and give a quick update on what’s going on with this. the calorie counting was not such a good idea in the end; i found myself starting to obsess about the calories again, and getting all stressed out about what i could & couldn’t eat in the day, panicking when i hit my calorie target before dinner time, etc etc. you know how it goes!! luckily i know now not to let that spiral into a binge, so happily i am still binge free :D but i have stopped the low calorie days and the calorie counting as it was causing too many issues and i feel i would have binged eventually. so now i am back to eating my good fats and high protein “diet”, avoiding high g.i. carbs, keeping my blood sugar stable etc, and am much happier again.

    again, i am sorry not to be on the forum more often. i have been promoted at work and am now head of my department (this isn’t really a big deal as we are quite a small company), and will be line managing 2 people from july. unfortunately this means i am now doing all my own work, plus a lot of management-y stuff, plus the work of my boss (who has resigned), plus doing a lot of handovers… i have also spent the past few weekends up mountains :) so no forum time or indeed time for much of anything! i hope everyone is well, i miss chatting to you guys xoxo

    another quick update, i have been away at a festival for a week so no forum time again! i ate garbage (no binging, just living off festival food) and did no exercise for 6 days, and at the end of it i had lost 3kgs and 0.8% body fat!!! i am sharing that with you guys in case any of the obsessive exercisers are reading :) i used to be one of them of course :D but it just shows you that we do occasionally need a break from the gym so our bodies can recover :) if i think about the calories i ate at the festival, it was way more than i would usually eat, probably about 2500-3000 a day? i now firmly believe that the whole “calories in vs calories out” is a TINY part of a big picture – the complex system that is our body/health/fitness. the sooner we can let go of all this calorie nonsense, the better.

    tobe!

    congrats on the promotion at work :) you sound busy now which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

    That is so interesting about the 3kg loss with no exercise and junk food, it helps me feel better if i ever do have a rest day and feel guilty (like today which turned out bad :(

    so thanks for that ! also how are you tracking your body fat just out of interest? i don’t plan to do it though.

    take care tobe xxxxxx lina
