Painted Hills Trip

Tuesday, July 05, 2011

I had a blast this weekend at our painted hills trip :)

My hubby and soulmate :)

My appointment went well on Friday it was our first session and it was good, getting to know the therapist was good. My first weeks homework was just to journal when i had the urge to eat emotionally/binge. so far so good. It's been okay i've maintained and can't wait to get back to my exercise class on Wednesday. Hoping to really step it up this week and i'm working on losing the all or nothing mentality this my lifestyle some days it will work and others will be harder then others the key is to recoup after one bad meal not turn it into several bad meals. I can do this!

    I saw your blog in my friend feed and "Painted Hills" jumped out at me. We went this spring and loved it. What a beautiful place and all around. Thanks for your blog and pictures to remind me of a great trip with my DH.

All the best to you on your journey!

    I always find that being really busy helps, because then you don't have time to eat. Whenever I have a real problem to work on, I lose a few pounds by accident.

    Emmy - the journal is a great idea......if you can get to that before the food - it might help curb in the urge....Crossing my fingers for you. I'm glad you found your appointment worthwhile.

The Painted Hills are GORGEOUS!!!! We don't have anything like that this way....just forest...

Back on Track!

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

I had a great day!!!Feels good i can do this. I have to look at my break as a learning expernience and not look at it negativly i'm not going to binge free always but if i can go longer without binging then i can measure success with it. My cool is to stay in my calorie range rightnow and continue to do it. woohoo!

Starting over streak broken!

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

Well my streak was broken, i had a donut meltdown last night i ate 4 of them... I wasn't emotional they were just there and called my name and i answered. Eating one would not have been so bad but 4 not sure what happened there beside a sabbatoge moment to myself so here goes a new start. I also broke my little toe on sunday so i had to turn to the pool for cardio yesterday.

    It's been a while, but I used to go to the grocery and get four donuts on some Sunday mornings - two for me and two for the BW. After so long, you forget how good chips and donuts are, and when you crack you do tend to over-do it. The only way I can control it is to just not eat the first one. If there are two for me I eat two, if there are a dozen I'll need more coffee.

    Emmy your program sounds like it is well managed.....that is fantastic!!!!!!

I know that you are sad because your streak was broken, but if today is a good BED day....then you have grown and learned....

I'll fess up too...stopped at the Dunkin Donuts for Breakfast for the family on Saturday....and instead of getting the healthy egg white flat bread, I ordered 3 glazed donuts for ME....and I ate them all for breakfast......sometimes....it just has to be done....the hard part is letting that one moment be just that....ONE MOMENT.

Year for you for grabbing the handles and getting back into the swing.

    No it was irritating because i already paid for my cardio class so i went to the community pool and paid $5.00 to get my exercise in so all in all i have to remember i was worth that $5.00. :) But i can't wait to meet with my BED counselor. I found out i get to meet with a dietician, doc and counselor as part of my therapy on steady basis. :)

    Thanks Ammie, I need to watch that sugar, i haven't been eating as much of it and when my system gets more carbs then needed it's like fix i crave more and i honestly am starting to believe sugar can be addicting but i know i can't completely give it up so i need to figure out how to work it without abusing it. Hoping to learn this in my treatment i get to see a doc, dietician and counselor so hoping i can figure things out in the end!

    Well, you're picking yourself back up again so you are back on the road again.

So sorry about your toe! I hate it when injury throws a kink into momentum!

    yeah, it's kind of nice to have somewhere that gets the emotional eating and can help you with tools to as you say lick it. ;) i just want to get my head cleared and will do what i need i know alot of things stem from when i was a kid i turned to food alot when i was alone or sad or mad. so i want to figure out how not to do that.

    I'm glad you're feeling better - and didn't know there was a binge eating treatment. I always thought it was just something you had to lick on your own. I hope it helps.
