June W30


Recommended Posts

I don't think this forum is very active anymore but I like the thought of keeping a log here for the month of June. I feel like I need this right now, if only for the discipline and accountability. A lot of the comfort strategies I'd adopted to cope with the pandemic are still lingering and I want to let go of them. 

How I'm feeling right now:

  • consistently low energy
  • poor sleep (waking up 2-3 times a night) 
  • anxiety; dysregulated nervous system 
  • difficulty discerning hunger from boredom, anxiety, sadness &c.

My goals for the next 30 days:

  • commit to eating this way
  • limit my coffee to 10oz before 10am
  • commit to a daily meditation practice, even if I can only manage 2 minutes
  • practice eating breakfast before drinking coffee 

Even though I usually only drink 1-2 small cups a day, I would like to experiment with giving up coffee entirely. The last time I tried to go cold turkey the headaches were SO HORRIBLE I went back to it after 2 days. Work is really hectic right now so I don't think this is the time for it - this is more of a long-term goal. I want to see if it improves my sleep. Movement-wise, I've been doing yoga most days and will continue with that. For a couple months now I've been going to the gym for strength-training every week, just not consistently. I want to be disciplined about getting to the gym every M/W/F.

Day 1

  • coffee with almond milk; green vegetable soup; 2 scrambled eggs
  • apple + almonds
  • salad (romaine lettuce, tomato, olives, vinaigrette) w/ sardines
  • coffee w/ almond milk
  • smoothie (blueberries, cucumber, avocado, hemp protein, flax seeds, bee pollen)
  • beef liver, sauerkraut, hash browns, strawberries


Slept HORRIBLY. I think I was up every hour between 2:00 and 6:00am. You know when you're so tired any little thing makes you cry? Had one of those days. Hence the afternoon coffee, which helped considerably. Around dinner time I was craving starchy carbs so bad I ran to the grocery store and bought a giant bag of frozen hash browns (they're compliant!). I'll need to make sure my meals are more calorie-dense, especially breakfast.
