My Own Personal Challenge.... A Bust!!!!!
Wednesday, October 24, 2012
Well, I did not make my personal challenge of logging everything I eat, good or BAD for 30 days. I won't make excuses because that would make the thought of not doing it worse. I take full responsibility that I did not do it.
Although I did not log it all on paper I know I did well about 85% of the time. I did slip a couple of days and made bad choices. I am still working on overcoming those bad choices. I have made huge progress over the past 5 years. I used to eat fast food on a daily basis, sometimes twice a day. Now, I make those bad choices a couple times a month.
I have almost completely overcome my binge eating. I used to do that 2-3 times a week. I would just eat everything in sight. Even when I felt full I would continue to eat. I have had only one episode in the past 6 months. I am still fighting with what I call Hormonal eating during PMS. I just feel hungry all the time for about 3 days of the month. I am trying to overcome that by eating smaller meals through out the day and drinking more water. But I just never seem to have that full feeling during PMS. I think I will have to bring this up with a Dr once I find one here next month when my health insurance kicks in. I have just recently realized this is a separate issue from binge eating.
I have been staying busy lately to help control bad eating habits. My sleeping is a lot better since I moved and I burn more calories. I do have some medical problems that are making things worse such as edema with no meds for 2 months. But again that will change once my insurance kicks in.
I am going to try to blog more to keep myself more accountable with this journey we call LIFE.
