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! :)
