So I've done it again. I'm back on the road to fitness, health and, weight loss, eating within my calorie range, exercising 5 or 6 times per week going good. Then last night I sit down after supper and I'm craving something sweet. I'm already over my calories for the day by about 50 not good but not too bad and I figure I can have one of my 100 calorie snacks. Half an hour later I've polished off more than 6 of them. WTF!?!?!? No good reason, just, they were tasty and there. I think it was an emotional binge, but I'm not sure what the trigger was. It was a pretty good day at work, I'd had a good workout before supper. Maybe it was the state of the house when I got home. A messy house always gets me down, and after having cleaned the house from top to bottom on Monday, 2 days later, my roommates have made it a disaster again. Yeah that was probably it.
Ok now that I've recognized the trigger how do I avoid the binge? Since its painfully obvious that I can't fix their cleaning habits and I just don't have the time and energy to be picking up after them all the time (nor should I have to they are both grown adults). Typically I hide in my room to avoid their mess but that encourages the binges because if no one sees me eat it, it's ok. How am I going to make this work?
