Blog#5 - Not so Good ... :(


Wednesday, July 03, 2013

Okay so I slipped up and did poorly yesterday. Yes, i binged, which was something I didn't think could happen because I was doing so well. But yes, I sadly slipped up and went way over my calories did not track them... i'm going to track it right after I'm done with this blog though (deep breaths! eek!).

Okay I am naturally upset with myself, but I'm forcing myself to stay on track and I'm taking this as a learning experience instead of an excuse to tear myself down. (I'm definitely my biggest bully). I learned 3 things from yesterday:

1. when I plan to go to the gym I need to go right away!
i planned to go to the gym as soon as i got home but I went into my room, sat down at my desk and well... once I sat down my intentions of going to the gym vanished... :(

2. when I am stressed and hungry do NOT go grocery shopping - I need to call someone, walk, do something to get my mind off of food!
i was stressed out last night (I have a lab exam in 2 hours! eek) so returning to old habits means that I went to the cabinet for food. There was no "good binge food" just healthy foods. So you know what I did? I got into my car and drove to the grocery store to buy binge foods. eek. yes I actually went to the grocery store with the intention of wrecking my diet.... hmph.

3. Exams are my trigger! my main trigger. two days before an exam is stressful, but the night before.... that's when I need help. i now know i need to come up with a strategy the night before exams that will prevent me from binging. perhaps I should study in the library? or.... ? hmm just need to figure out a way to avoid binging the night before exams

So I didn't do well yesterday :( but i'm going to work really hard not to let it discourage me and I'm treating this as a learning experience.

Today is a new day! i CAN do this!

best always,
Jasmine

    You're always going to have good days and your bad. But recognizing your trigger is always a good step to make your bad days...less bad :)

    Okay - so, you know your trigger... as for most of us.. STRESS!! I think I would pre-plan something. Perhaps a HEALTHY dinner out? A nice steak, or grilled seafood, with a side of steamed veggies. Takes the pressure from having to cook/clean off, allows you a little time to just chillax outside of house.. just a little mini-break for your stressed brain?
I know how sitting down, esp. when tired and stressed can just be DEATH to a workout. But remember, the time is NOW, the only time is NOW - there is no other time but right now and right now is the best time. Sitting down and sinking into comfort is soooooo appealing, but a workout - even just a 10-min walk will make you feel 110% better than sitting down knowing youre not doing what you need to be doing. PLUS it will change your whollleee mindset - after you finish you wont want the junk and a binge will be a faded memory of passing brain-fart. (-:
Good luck on the exam!! Remember - you are strong... smart... and you are what you consistently do, not what you do on occasion. (hugs)

  you Can do this. One day of slipping doesn't hurt too bad. Get back on track and slowly make up for it.
