What Brings On A BINGE?


Monday, February 18, 2013

Well for me it's...

*No School and all 7 kids home
*Daycare kids here
*A day or two away from TOM's arrival
*Financial stress
*An appt with a Counselor
*My husband with an eye issue, not working, underfoot
*My 5yo waking up with 102 fever
*10 people all wanting me to do things
*a messy house
*a million things on my "to-do"list
*Kids' leftover Valentine junk
*Girl Scout cookies

My tummy hurts! A full-out binge? I've got to say no. In the past I would have kept going, I would have sat down with a book or tv trying to ignore the stresses escaping to a different "world"and FOOD. Today I reached out to my sister via text who, knowing I was in crisis, responded right back. Once putting little ones down for a nap I jumped on the treadmill, in my normal street clothes, and walked for 30 minutes at a incline of 5. And I'm taking the time to process my thoughts by coming on SP and blogging.

Will today's binge impact my weight on the scale tomorrow. Definitely. Will it impact my weight for BL weigh-in day? Maybe. Will it stop me from continuing to go forward with my goal focusing from this moment forward? Heck NO!

    Very good analysis. I make that kind of lists, too! But I don't have the courage (yet) to post them in public! Compliments!

    Nicely done! I've avoided binges in a similar way. Get on spark then get moving then repeat over and over until bedtime.

Sorry for all the hurdles that were laid out before you. Next time go over or under hurdles, but don't go around them. That's where those girl scout cookies and chocolates are hanging around waiting to be eaten.

    Keep Pushing, your list made me think a lot about myself and I can relate to some of the items on your list. We all need to stick together in this, the insane journey that we are on is probably going to be one of the hugest struggles that we face in life. Hugs to you and you can do this!! Take care!!

    emoticon I need to make a list myself. Yes it will affect the scale, but a lot is water weight. And you are taking a HUGE step by realizing WHY it was caused, I still struggle with pinpointing that.

You will get back on track, and sometimes I like to think that an overeating helps kick start the metabolism. So don't get down on yourself. emoticon

    Oh, my heart goes out to you! I'm so sorry you are under so many stressors, but how awesome that you turned to walking and you sister! That's MAJOR progress!

    It's good that you reached out to your sister and jumped on the treadmill. One binge isn't going to undo everything you've done, which is amazing so far!

Keep pushing forward as if the binge didn't happen. What's done is done. You can certainly undo it by staying on track and continuing to exercise from here on out. I know you can do it!!
