Mindless Eating / Binging
Thursday, August 26, 2010
As you might have noticed from my status update that last night I totally went over my calorie range! One thing that i've been noticing lately is that I am an emotional eater and I eat when I'm completely full. Last night we went out to dinner at Oreganos... the best Italian restaurant out in Phoenix, AZ! I came home completely stuffed, but there was a huge bag of Gold Fish lying in the living room that was given to us from the college students (my husband is a resident director for a college, so we live in a dorm). The bag was calling my name all night long. The temptation was no where to be found until my friends all left and my husband ran to the office to print some papers off for work around 10pm.
The bag is half gone :(
What's up with that? I don't know where that came from! I was completely full and satisfied from Oreganos and was at the limit of my calories. Now I'm 500 calories over and I raided the entire kitchen. There must be something deeper than just this.
Well today I'm vowing that for the next Month... up till the end of September, I am going to be Binge Free! Hopefully you all will keep me accountable and I will be updating on here every few days to keep you in touch with how I am doing.
... hopefully those dang 500+ calories that I went over on won't make me gain weight :( I was finally starting to feel a difference in my clothes.
