Welp.

I’m gonna stick with it. I like the plan, I love what I’m allowed to eat. I don’t feel well after I eat a bunch of fatty/carb heavy/sugared up foods anyway…. so… I’m going to stick with it, but give myself a little leeway if I don’t stick with it for Christmas dinner.

Being a whiny, bitchy, snot is not going to fix anything.

 

This year I have a few long term goals, and so help me, I will reach them:

  1. Stick with IP to the awesome end
  2. Get $10,000 in our OH SHIT fund
  3. Get $10,000 in our savings
  4. Get a decent shortish term investment account going
  5. Get our house de-hoarded
  6. Figure out how to de-stress my life

I’ll try to post updates every week on how the goals are coming. Or, if I’m honest, I’ll post whenever I remember / have something to report.

Aaaannnnnddddd, I’m to lazy to look.

I havent’ made any real decisions regarding IP. I do know there was a noticeable reduction in my stress level when I, intentionally, didn’t follow IP this weekend.

I’m going to give it today and tomorrow and then make my decision.

IP Day 31

THIS POST IS BAD! AND I SHOULD FEEL BAD!!

Well, I’m trying to decide whether or not to delay IP for a while.

These holidays are nothing but stress, and I’ve only gotten past one small one (Thanksgiving) with the biggest still looming (Christmas).

I don’t feel like dealing with everything that comes with the holidays. I just don’t. I’m still lost and I’m still not sure I can ever get over/past what happened last year. The holidays are a time that I find it incredibly difficult to keep up the fake “Everything awesome and I’m doing fine, life is a joy” line. And, not sticking to IP is just causing more stress. Along with making me feel like a failure for not being able to cope with my stress.

I don’t want to stop, but I’m not sure I can handle the added stress right now. Food has always been a comfort thing. Goes back forever.

I don’t know. Maybe I’ll just do IP for breakfast, lunch and snacks but eat regularly for dinner.

Yesterday and the day before I was sick.

I’m allowing back posting in just this once instance. If I was just too lazy to post that’d be one thing, but in this case I felt too sick to do anything.

I was sick, really sick today.

Well, I’m posting.

Also, lunch. Yay IP. So much celery and cucumber. And lettuce. But not today. Someone moved my lettuce to the very top of the fridge so it froze on me. But that’s ok. I have a giant thing of celery.
