All those little voices..

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Today was an eating day where I felt preoccupied with thoughts of food throughout the day. Typically I am pretty good at staying busy and sidetracking the sabotaging voices in my head but not this time. I just wanted to eat, and eat then eat some more. I didn't necessarily binge but I definitely over did it, and will feel the effects tonight and today. I know I won't sleep as soundly tonight and will have a lack of motivation in the morning. I don't miss the very many days and nights which I suffered through. Above all I certainly don't miss the psychological and emotional toll binge eating took on me. I've been binge free for awhile now but understand that I need to be more aware and proactive on days like today. I know we all over indulge from time to time- but this was boredom eating- not for some over the top celebration. So my goal for the rest of this month will be to be more mindful of what I am eating and why, especially on my days to relax.

    Keeping busy on a relaxation day is no simply task. The whole point is to have down time, Right? When I have a day coming like that. I like to pre make my main meal, have temptations removed before the day starts, and find a mental activity like a museum. This lets me decide on breakfast (control), recharge my batteries (activity), and stay healthy (pre made meal).

    I agree! It seems when I have "down time" the more likely I am to eat just to eat. I try to stay busy or take a moment to check in with Sparkpeople. I'll also drink a glass of water. Hang in there! You are aware of it, which will make it easier to handle! emoticon
