Daily checklist + Fought the urge to overeat!

Thursday, March 27, 2014

Tracked my meals. [ x ] (Current streak: 10 days)
Stayed within my calories (6 days a week). [ x ] (Current streak: 10 days)
Didn't binge. [ x ] (Current streak: 10 days)
Went for a walk (6 days a week). [ x ] (Current streak: 10 days)
Took the stairs instead of the elevator. [ x ] (Current streak: 44 days)

Today I ate: 1,600 calories
Today I burned: 350 calories

Daily calorie differential: - 570

First of all, I'd like to say GOOD JOB, ME! I had a really, really tough time today. All I could think of eating/food/binging... It's a PMS thing and I'm used to it, but it's always tough to say no! The urge to eat is so strong that I feel like there's not much I can do to fight it. I wasn't hungry since I had eaten a healthy breakfast and a nutritious lunch, and yet all I could think of was food. I wanted to go out and buy ice cream and chocolate. I wanted to eat and not think about anything (emotional eating, no doubt about it; I'm feeling stressed and restless and I turn to food). BUT I knew I wouldn't do that. I knew that no matter how much I wanted it I would not give into my urges this time because I did not want to let myself down. And I didn't!

I'm very proud to say I didn't binge today.

I ate healthy (LOTS of fruit and veggies!), went for a walk, shared a small portion of ice cream with my boyfriend instead of binging on it secretly, enjoyed the lovely spring day and stayed within my calories. I couldn't be happier! :)

    Proud of your self-control. Overcoming this regular problem makes you stronger for the next time. When temptation calls your name again, don't listen. Hear instead what your heart tells you to do. emoticon -- Lou

I really like your daily checklist. I don't actually turn on my computer daily and track from the app, so I can't blog daily, but that could actually help me...

    We all go through that binging and thinking of it all the time thing. You fought well, lady.
