Just reporting in.

On Friday I held out for as long as I could, but eventually succumbed and binged in the evening, and totally gave up on working.

Yesterday started really nicely but later in the day I ended up bingeing again.

Both times were out of uneasiness about not getting enough work done, and ironically as usual, bingeing makes me feel in such a bad mood that I definitely don't get any work done afterwards.

So today I really, really need to get back on track. I already overate this morning and am not happy about it, which is why I'm here blogging. I have a pretty strong urge to binge, but I will not give in to black-and-white thinking. I can tell it's a craving - I checked in with myself and wasn't physically hungry, but the overwhelming drive to find something with which to satisfy the craving won out, so I started eating more when wasn't hungry.

Staying Positive

+ Yesterday I had a good run with my friends. I haven't been out on a weekend run for some time due, but it seems physical therapy is already helping - my hip didn't really hurt.

+ Yesterday I also met with my friend and his son at a bakery and had a good time hanging out (though unfortunately this was the source of binge food afterwards).

+ Even though I didn't get any work done yesterday, I went to sleep early after the binge and thus caught up on sleep.

+ I'm trying to think positively by telling myself that this morning's overeating isn't as bad as a binge, and that I have a chance to turn things around today by doing the next right thing.

    You keep trying, which is the most important thing. I understand how challenging it can be! Keep up the good work.

    I am sorry you are having a hard time with the binges. Trying to stay positive should help you. Yeah on running with little pain. Tomorrow is a new day to start a binge free streak!

    I don't have the answers but what I have been doing lately is getting a piece of the good seasonal fruit that is so good right now. A huge bowl of watermelon is very sweet and satisfying but hardly any calories at all. Peaches, plums, mangoes, etc. really satisfy your sweet tooth.
    For salty, crunchy cravings I get whole wheat pretzels or tortilla chips and salsa.
    Good luck! emoticon
