I need to start somewhere

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Today needs to be (another) day 1 of no bingeing. I haven't been doing well with going more than one or two days lately, and I've definitely been feeling it. Very, very busy first week of school, plus a huge math conference starting tomorrow and going through Saturday.

Anyway, just a quick check in! As I'll keep doing with every blog post, here are some positives for me to focus on...

Staying Positive.

+ Even though I haven't been actually logging fitness minutes here, I have been keeping up with running, yoga, and....spinning!

+ My spin studio is having a January fitness challenge. Cycle 150 or 200 miles this month and get some free classes and such. I'm aiming for the 200 mile goal. I hit my personal best for a 1 hr class (20 miles) last week on Thursday, and also did my first long ride this past Sunday, a 1.5 hr class, where I made 29.3 miles. I am getting stronger!

+ Last night I started to binge and had a huge urge to continue it and make it way worse, but I fought it, and I stopped. I distracted myself by writing my daily gratitudes to my friend, and kept telling myself I needed to start somewhere. It took me over an hour of pretty serious discomfort after starting the binge for the urge to finally dissipate, but am so glad I made it.

+ I'm struggling again today with overeating, but I am going to keep telling myself to keep fighting. I haven't actually binged today, nor even started to binge, so that's good. I really want to get a few days under my belt of no bingeing so I can get my confidence up.

+ I went to a math social lunch today. I did have urges to isolate and skip it, but I forced myself to go and I am glad I did.

    I'm so glad you are taking care of yourself! And stopping mid-binge is a HUGE SUCCESS!!

    Hopefully having the big conference will HELP prevent that bingey feeling by keeping you busy this weekend. Get on SP and start commenting on strangers blogs if you need more distracting...always works for me. :)

    I am sorry to hear that you have binge problem. But at least, you are realizing it. And fighting for it. When I was binge eating, I wasn't even realizing that what I am doing it. It was terrible. Now I finally realized that was binge eating habits. And I never want to go back there again. So far I am doing good. Hopefully no more binge for me. Right now, I am watching what I eat and doing exercise regularly. Good luck on your health journey.
