MOST RECENT

So I did a thing yesterday. A thing I really never thought possible. A thing that might seem like the simplest of things to some, but for me represented what I’m capable of when I believe in myself. I completed Week 4, Day 1 of #C25K, where I ran for two 5 minute periods and two 3 minute periods. .
.
When I started to train for my 5K I thought there was no way I could progress past running two minutes at a time. Just running for two minutes seemed to take all the will power I had. But, it’s great to see progress being made. Not only is my body slowly changing and becoming stronger (which is an amazing feeling), but I’m becoming mentally stronger as well. That five minutes seemed like a lifetime, and I had to repeat over and over, “You got this, Meg. Keep going!” Seriously....that phrase was on repeat in my head the ENTIRE time. .
.
Full disclaimer: I might be getting mentally stronger in the gym, but I’m still working my ass off to become mentally stronger with eating.

Falaffel , cauliflower mash and a shit load of veg for dinner tonight. Really trying to pump the veg into my veins this week. The cauliflower mash was shite if I'm honest I wouldn't recommend it! Didn't have time for a full lunch today so grabbed a banana bread in star bucks. Not ideal considering tracking has been going so well but I'm Not gonna lose sleep over it. Ive managed to stay within range today so all is G. Chilling tonight with a gold face mask on that looks like someone vomited on my face. That glam life though. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• • •

Well that was fun/boring. I’ve had some gnarly jet lag - which really surprised me but I think it’s because I didn’t sleep very well while I was there. Full disclosure, I slept in a room with my mom and sister, I was on a pullout couch with the portion where I laid tilted backwards - I snored. A lot apparently. Kept my sister up and walked in on them joking about it a few times - which really upset me because I couldn’t do anything about it and knew it was the position of my head and neck and that they look at it like a “fat problem.” They felt bad but it kind of traumatized me. I also woke up a couple times gasping for air = aka I was not breathing at certain times while I slept. That renewed my faith in trying macros. I can be body positive and love myself and search for a lower body mass because for ME PERSONALLY it means better health.
##

Anyways, after learning I was running at too high of a HR and trying to run in a lower zone - and failing - I read about the #maffetonemethod where you subtract your age from 180 (instead of 220 for HR) and that number becomes your highest allowed HR. You run and try and stay between that number and ten below it. So I did this jaunt between 140 and 151 (even though it should have been 139-149 because tomorrow is my 31st birthday lol). ##

It was so boring. I basically walked for 3 min, started to trot at a 14 min pace for a minute and boom I was over 150. So I let my watch decide when I could walk or run - I ended up having a phone call towards the end and easily held a conversation while I did this. I’m gonna try doing 3-4 miles everyday doing this (because it’s so easy why not do back to back days) and see if I can train my HR to work aerobically so I can keep that easy effort up for a whole race.

Taco salad for dinner 🥗 🌮 I am *trying* to count macros for a couple days and not lose my mind. My sister had an ED and recovered (the opposite of mine) and she loves counting. So after spending all week with her and remembering how easy it is to count macros when you’re low carb and not fixating on it, I decided to try. Just for a week and I’m taking it day by day.

Its been a full two weeks of tracking my food correctly again. The last week was hard because ive been feeling so over exhausted no matter how much good food I ate. Hopefully the bloods results on Tuesday will tell me what it is im lacking that's causing this. This morning I got the great feeling back of what happens when you're 100% committed to this. I weighed myself and im the lowest ive ever been. Lower than the weight I was when I went home to Ireland. It's given me a great boost and makes the effort seem worthwhile. Oats yoghurt and strawberries for breakfast this morning on an amazing sunny Sunday 🌞🌞🌞 today I'm going shopping for some more summery clothes to feel good and planning on wearing a sundress which terrifies me but it'll be just another thing ticked off my list. Wearing a sundress out might seem simple to some but for me its a challenge that I'm gonna kick in the teeth 💃💃 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• • •

Hanging in Pasadena with my momma, waiting for my sister to arrive👽👽👽 ##

Mom hurt her leg the other day so my workout has been pushing her in a wheelchair all around the hotel and up and down the street. #bunsofsteel 🍑

I’m not for supplements usually but I’m still suffering from fatigue and acheyness the last couple of weeks! The fatigue can be so heavy in the morning in work and towards the end of the day, that I struggle to stay awake. Giving some iron supplements a bash after I’ve given up red meat. Hopefully I’ll see an improvement after a few weeks. The turmeric/circumin is for achey flare ups. It’s a bit disheartening to have lost so much weight and to still feel crap and tired and sore. But it wouldn’t be me if I just gave up so we’ll just keep hopping over the hurdles as they come.dreaming of October and how I’ll feel standing on a beach :) •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• • •

I woke up hours before my parents and made myself a watermelon and strawberry yogurt bowl with ground flax, hemp seeds, and marcona almonds. Side of coffee with coconut milk 😋

I haven’t run since Thursday. My mom was hime Friday and we both slept terribly so we cleaned with the intention of going running after the TV guy came, but he came late and stayed so long it was too hot to move outside by the time he left. Then we stayed up till 1am to get my dad at the airport after his brand new phone shit the bed. Another night of basically no sleep and running yesterday was not an option. I got up this morning, after finally sleeping, and just didn’t want to. I wanted to eat, drink coffee, write, work on cover letters and finish the boom I was reading...and then it poured and continues to pour.
##

I could be really upset with myself for not going three days in a row, but instead I’m going to trust I needed a break, needed sleep, and tomorrow I will run 💁🏻‍♀️

🌼🌼🌼Lets talk about last night/yesterday. After a shit few weeks of being all over the place and really feeling unsettled here, I got up yesterday and went to a yoga class. Felt zen as fuck all day and last night threw myself out there and went out for drinks with some new people who ended up being the soundest bunch in the world. Had such a great night and for the first time in a very long time, I felt like everything was all G and not that I wanted to hop on a plane and go home. Topped the night off chilling in bed with my bestie eating dominos listening to @thexx and I’m 100% ok with that! Happy out! 🌼🌼🌼 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• • •

My mom and I just spent a half hour talking about body positivity. I think I should be allowed to love myself and want to enjoy myself now, not when I reach that infamous size 4. She thinks so too, but she always has to add the caveat “but things will be easier then.” Why can’t they be easy now? I have this crazy idea that how I think and feel about my body could actually affect the way others think and feel about my body.
##

This conversation came after she filled me on things my brother told her when he was home this weekend - and after I spent the afternoon binging @dietlandamc. I love my brother. I love him so much it hurts, but he sees a weird, comic book loving (I’ve never read a comic book in my life, but I love comic book movies and am a science fiction nut), fat, goofball. He says things like “well you don’t run, you jog,” or “if you just walked more you’d lose weight.” Apparently, he spent the few minutes he was actually in this house during this vacation to tell my mom how #pcos isn’t real, we made it up, I am an emotional basketcase who hasn’t learned anything from all the self-help books I’ve read, and I’m super lazy and just watch TV in bed all day. Uh hi, my name is Alex. I graduated from law school last May, sat for the July bar after studying 10 hours a day for nine weeks and failed. I lost my mind. I picked myself up and I studied for 9 hours a day for 13 weeks, meditated every day, and worked on myself. And I passed the February Bar with such a high score I can go anywhere I want and work in any state. Since February I have trained and run a half marathon, traveled with my mom, watched my father’s employees kids so they could go on business trips, did freelance work, started writing a novel, oh and read 17 books. Nice to meet, you I’m your older sister.

This very long rant is to say that I feel like the people around me (brother, grandma, cousins, vapid acquaintances) don’t count me as a human being because of my round middle. Everything I do with an “extra” 70 lbs is looked at as less than instead of exceptional. And maybe I made that okay because of how I treat and talk about my body. Well no FUCKING more.

....And she had no f*cks to give....😂👌🤷‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️ #ByeHaters #FatGirlsRunToo

I think I’m one of like ten people who actually love kale. But I only love kale made two ways - braised in pear juice in the best restaurant in Iceland and crisped in coconut oil on my stove 💁🏻‍♀️ i could put that shit on everything.

As seen on my run today 🦆 🐥
##

60:30 intervals. Paid attention to my HR. It stayed under 180 but it was not as spectacularly low as Tuesday - which makes me think my watch was dying 🙄

2.4 mile run today 🏃🏻‍♀️ I finally managed to wale up at 6:30 and get out the door before the 90* weather hit. I #jeffed a 60:30 interval and paid attention to my HR the whole way. At one point I thought I broke my garmin because my HR - while running, albeit slowly, was 118. How is that possible. If you **swipe left** you’ll see my HR on a 2.4 mile run last week vs. my run today. My paces were different. I definitely ran slower today but it didn’t feel so much slower than I have been...I’m so confused and on the brink of being elated... ## #paleorunner #intuitiveeating #running #igrunner #curvyrunner #fatgirlsruntoo #fatgirlrunning #plussizerunner #healthatanysize #bodypositive #bopo #effyourbeautystandards #backofthepack #backofthepackrunner #curvyathlete #runner #prehab #marathontraining #halfmarathontraining #lowcarbrunning #heartratetraining #jeffgalloway #gallowaymethod #gallowaytrained

Well that was boring 😂 and frustrating. Per @themuscleprincess suggestion I tried a HR training run. So I set my watch to beep at me when my HR got up above 175 (I’m sure when she sees this she’ll tell me she meant lower than that lol) and then when it got below 140. I was able to run super slow for like six min at a time before it hit 175 and then it would take at least five to seven minutes of breathing in for 4 seconds, out for 4 to get my HR to 139 so I could run again. It was so frustrating so I went further than I intended just to feel like I did something.

After a vent of honesty last night and chatting it out with good friends and old friends, I woke up this morning feeling lighter in the sense that I’d gotten the struggle of the last week off my chest. As a wise wordsmith of the naughties called Aaliyah said ‘ if at first you don’t succeed, dust yourself off and try again’. ( tune) No point messing around so first thing this morning I was up and over at the gym for 8am to kick the lazy attitude that’s creeped in this week.
Felt brazen so went straight for deadlifts which I tend to avoid in the gym because im embarrassed. I had nothing to lose though so just went for it and it felt absolutely great. I’ve been working on form and stretching too and usually I would have pain after deadlifts . Almost like a feeling of strain but today that didn’t exist. Onwards and upwards. Always push yourself to keep going no matter how shit you feel or how disappointed you are in yourself. That’s my tuppence now for the day ! •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• • •

Babbled on in my story tonight about getting honest about the last week and how hard it’s been to settle back here after being back in Ireland . Pop over to my stories to have a look. Does this happen to anyone else? I think it’s so important to be able to speak up when you’re struggling even if you know it’s temporary.
Give me any tips you have pleeeease! •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• • •
