Just when I thought my only food issue was nourishing an athlete's body and training for my half marathon, an old eating pattern reared its ugly head. Guess I was just too cocky. Last night I ate like the 200+ pound person I used to be. Well, that's not totally true. Many of my choices (greek yogurt, graham crackers, nuts, and dark chocolate) are somewhat better than what I used to scarf down.
I can't blame stress. It was not a particularly stressful day and I was not uptight. It was just a slippery slope. Started with not planning my meals for the day. Then I grabbed an extra Greek yogurt I knew I didn't need and then... just couldn't make myself face the reality of what I knew I was doing.
Oh, well. I would like to think that the days of overeating and binging are behind me forever. Just not in my nature. Not a part of me, of who I am now. Oh,well. Hasn't happened. May never happen. Reality is that I need to commit to healthy eating every day or it won't happen for me. Maybe I needed that lesson again.
