The Rest of the Week Will be a Huge Test!

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

So far this week I've had 2 days (in a row!) of eating well and staying within my calorie range. Good for me, I should be doing this every day, right? Absolutely. I'm psyched to keep the streak going.

BUT.

The rest of this week will put me in a perfect storm of circumstances where I would normally binge. My son is leaving today to spend several days with a friend in another town, so I will be home alone every day. I have a track record of binges when I'm alone, especially for an extended period of time, like all day long while my husband is at work and the kid is gone. Add to this the fact that I'm recovering from a foot injury and have been ordered off my feet for the entire week. On the couch, injured, alone, bored, in the house with food readily available; this is a recipe for epic disaster.

How am I going to handle this? I have prepared by getting several books from the library (with exciting non-food related plots), and several skeins of yarn with some new challenging scarf patterns I'm really looking forward to trying. I'm blocking the food channels from the TV so I won't be tempted by food shows promoting delicious looking but less-than-healthy food. I am constantly reminding myself that my blood sugar levels have been much better these past 2 days and I'm on a good streak with calorie counts, and I really really don't want to mess that up. Self talk is key here. My mantra is "You are Stronger than the binge!"

I'm posting this here in hopes that the accountability factor will keep me in check. If everyone knows what is going on with me, I have a better chance of behaving myself during this time. I've heard it said that there can't be a testimony until there has been a test, so here begins the test.

Wish me strength!
