I just blew the entire day: such great restraint all day and a wonderful first workout after weeks of being sick...
A bunch of thai leftovers, too much matza (passover stuff...) and way too much chocolate.
Right now I'm sitting in bed thinking how easy it would be to just keep eating since I already ruined the day, but I won't...
I'm kind of thinking that this has to do with my workout...
for some reason I have an easier time eating less when I don't work out.
i know that burning calories is going to make me want more food, but how do I balance the work out with my food intake? I mean, what if I burn 500 calories but then go nuts eating... what was the point?
Okay, so now I have three things to work on:
Portion control
eating around the husband
not overeating on workout days

The thing is... it is all in my head. i just have to listen to my body and realize that i'm not hungry, i'm going easy on myself because of the workout, thinking that its okay to eat since i did work out that day... ugh

    So now that you realize what that trigger is, you can work on it!

    I know you'll succeed!

    Yeah, keeping certain foods out is kind of tough, since my husband also likes to eat some of those foods...
    Here's the thing: I don't even LIKE thai food! But I did bring the rest of the chocolate to school today and I'm giving it to my friends, so that's a step.
    I love the idea of signs, I think I'll try that tonight! Thanks, Tammy!

    How about not having your food triggers around in the house? If you didn't have the Thai leftovers in your fridge, you wouldn't be so quick to grab them. Try having foods around you that are easy to grab or fix when you are in a "frenzy." Hopefully that will help you to eat better during the "binges."

    You have to put the right kind of fuel in to your body so that you can workout and lose the weight that you want to lose. I think you are right that your mind is playing with you. Put up signs on your fridge and cupboards to make you think before you grab. They may help slow you down.
