Okay, so I knew that we'd be invited over for dinner at our neighbours place. It always is difficult if you're not in charge of the cooking, especially if the cook is someone who doesn't need to be careful with her weight... she made an absolutely beeeeaaaauuuuutiful Romanian dish, a mix between lasagna, shepherd's pie and polenta all covered in cheeeeeeese.... and baked in the oven in individual pans. It was soooo delicious that I ate all of my portion but savoured every bite of it. We also had dessert... which I ate as well. I stuck to my water though, no pop for me, which felt good.
Yet after the boys were finally in bed (and hubby out to go shooting for the night) the chocolate munchies tried to visit again. So I decided to make a deal with them: I can have my bar of chocolate, even though I had a big dinner AND dessert IF I did a 40min workout before eating it. So that's what I did... I did a core strength video for 40min, had a shower, got all cosy and comfy on the couch, watched a movie and ate my chocolate bar. It isn't the best of solutions, yet it is better than binging so it is a success.
I try to make that the aim for this week... not binging, keeping the sugar intake in check... cause there will be quite some challenges, it's our wedding anniversary on Wednesday and offspring's third birthday on Thursday.... I just want to be able to eat like a normal person, not like some food maniac swinging from one extreme to the next.
