The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Unplanned Cheat Day Overload

    Does this happen to anyone else, ever? Yesterday, the day after Thanksgiving, for some reason I went into this MASSIVE unplanned cheat day. It was ridiculously massive. I think I stopped eating for a total of two hours the entire day, and that was only every now and then to let my stomach not be quite so tight so I could have something else. And it was crap food too. Like KFC, pizza hut, cheese, salami, snickers, ice cream cake, the works. WTF? I wasn't upset or stressed or anything, I just decided to eat everything in the whole fookin house. My tummy still hurts and I look like a fookin swiss ball. I could barely sleep, even. How do I deal? And how do I prevent this from happening again? (Or am I just a crazy person and no one knows wtf im talking about??)

    yeah..definitely let the guilt go over it. Did you have a lot of carbs on thanksgiving? eating lot's of simple carbs can set you up for a rollercoaster of craving and binging on more carbs later on.....

    yeah i did tryska, that may have affected it. late night meal on thanksgiving too, and I hate waking up not hungry, so that could have started the whole thing. *shrug*

    Yeah, I know what your talking about Jane. Doesn't happen often to me, but maybe once every month or two it will. I'll mess up accidentally on my diet and then I'll just say "screw it, planned cheat day now!"

    any suggestions for how i should be eating today? Eventually Im bound to get hungry, even though I think I stored enough away yesterday to last me all winter. BTW, taking maintenance calorie levels into account, I think I overate by enough yesterday to gain 1.5 pounds.

    Go straight back to your normal diet. Starving yourself will just set you up for severe hunger pangs later. Just relax and go back to what you were doing before the holidays. It's okay, girl. I know where you're coming from.

    Yep yep. holiday feasts are always a shock to the system, takes a while to get back into the groove. (Says the guy who's probably kept 3 of the 6.5 pounds he seems to have gained after that one meal.)

    I just love the fact that you used the word "fookin".


    I do that like 1-2 times per week. Don't worry about it.


    PS- will you marry me once you're old enough?

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"
