Re: CB's daily Check In

And a check in as we're two weeks into Feb. Week of Feb 3 was all "check mark" all the time! Yay! Week of Feb 10 started strong then faltered on Thurs and Fri. Monday Feb 17 faltered again. Was great during the day, but then at the end of the day when my husband cracked out the girl scout cookies......

Re: CB's daily Check In

Checking in for January in review! Overall, this was a positive month! I had one designated "special" day (MLK day) and I had three slip ups - Jan 1st, 15th, and 23rd. Or maybe I should phrase this all in the positive - in January, I ate no snacks, seconds, or sweets on 20 days in January. I'd say I...

Re: CB's daily Check In

@auto - I'm in the SF Bay Area in California. You can camp all year round here, but that was definitely a winter camping trip up at Lassen National Park. It was super fun - storm had just blown through on Thursday and we had two gorgeous mild/sunny days on Saturday and Sunday. On Monday we took off ...

Re: CB's daily Check In

Thursday was a thumbs up again, so I'm back on track! Today is what I affectionately call "Friday Chai Day." Our office gets Masala Chai delivered every Friday and I friggin love it. (ALL THE CHAI BELONGS TO ME!) Makes me very happy that I'm not stressing about beverages between meals. I've learned ...

Re: CB's daily Check In

Well darn, broke the streak. At I type right now, I am eating a 4th meal on Wednesday night. I think I got started this morning with a breakfast that was too small (bowl of soup) and it just set me on a bad path. I caved and had luhc before 11, then dinner right at 5:30...and now it's 7:40 and I'm s...

Re: How has your meal composition changed?

I'm only a few months in, but knowing that I"m doing 3 discrete meals only has probably improved my meal composition a little. I want to see veggies/fruit with every meal and I tend to spend a little more time thinking about my whole meal and making it a little more special. I have not (so far) slip...

Re: CB's daily Check In

Saturday - S day. Made the most bomb massive brunch then spent the afternoon/evening at a friends' house for a girls day. Was lovely to be able to eat apps and things that were laid out, and some chocolate after dinner. Don't feel that I went crazy, which is great. Sunday - kept it a pretty normal d...

Re: CB's daily Check In

Thursday was another thumbs up and Friday is shaping up well too. As I go into the weekend, I'm thinking about how I should rethink my weekend mentality. Previously, I've just said to myself that there are no "rules" on the weekend, but have also told myself to not get lost in black and white thinki...

Re: CB's daily Check In

Tuesday and Wednesday were both thumbs up. I've been feeling more hunger lately, so I've been enacting my rule of allowing for a protein shake before/after crossfit if it's not practical to eat right at that moment. It's helped a lot. Plus, from a crossfit pov I need more protein anyway, so you know...

Really great ideas Auto! I like the idea of thinking of Monday as a special return to N days with three really great meals. And a check in for Thursday - thumbs up! Got back on track and it felt powerful. I was feeling those snacking cravings about about 5 pm while at work and eventually I executed ...

Re: CB's daily Check In

Well...my last post has that ring of "famous last words." Just as I felt that I was getting good at this thing, I all of a sudden got very bad at it. Starting on Monday December 9th I have 3.5 weeks of pretty much uninterrupted non-compliant days. Whoops. I did continue to track compliant/non compli...

Re: Food Pushers

For me, the best way to deal with it is to just honestly say, "I already ate breakfast and I'm trying not to eat between meals. But thanks!" I don't like talking about any sort of "diet" with people - I think it's sort of gauche to bring it up - but honestly I feel like it's the most effective thing...

Re: CB's daily Check In

About 6 weeks in and still doing well. I did have one non-compliant day last week. My husband was cracking crab while I was making dinner and I snacked on a few delectable pieces while cooking. Clearly not a big deal at all, but outside of No S so I recorded it honestly. My real goal here is to work...

I want to talk today about substituting behaviors. I have been snacking less at work, which was an activity I used to procrastinate. But I can see myself now substituting in other equally non-productive behaviors (namely, checking reddit) while I should just be buckling down and working. Has anyone ...

Re: CB's daily Check In

That was also the first big change that (eventually) occurred for me - eating whole foods. That's one that can really stick long-term, and our minds naturally reframe it as self-care. I think when we're eating foods we love to eat and that nourish us and make us feel good, we've found the magic of ...

Finished the week with another compliant day. So I'm just about 2/3 through the 21 day challenge and it's been going very well! In my opinion, the No S diet feels (psychologically) actually extremely similar to an "evil foods" diet. I actually ate Paleo for several years very successfully and No S f...

CB's daily Check In

As someone who struggles with habits and behaviors related to eating, I've decided that I'm ready to give the NoS Diet an earnest go. I'm committing to doing NoS for 21 days, and I started on Tuesday, Oct 22nd. My hope is that the experiment will work and I'll eventually build it into a more unconsc...
