urges and cravings
Tuesday, January 13, 2009
This weekend was a real calorie bust. I did not focus on the goal and instead gave into the stress and self medicated with food. The worst thing, I'm aware that I'm doing while I'm doing it. The best thing, I know today is a new day and I can start over.
Giving into cravings results in binge eating withdrawal. Which makes it hard, but definitely not impossible, to get back on track. I'm still working to get completely back on track and I'm planning ahead for this weekend. I think having a plan is important. Not having plan is like going on a long distant trip to somewhere you've never been without a road map (or in my case "map quest") Of course this insight came after the weekend binge. LOL So this weekend I will have only healthy choices available at home.
I will also spend more time on SP. During the week I log-in at work and just leave the window open at the bottom of my browser as a reminder that anything I decide to eat needs to be logged in. It makes it easier to focus. So I'll try the same thing at home.
I'm exercising every morning and doing the 10 minute bootcamp work out every night, so I have to remember I am doing somethings right. The rest will just take some practice.
