Funny how the journey goes.

When I started SparkPeople I was new to everything healthy. I didn't have any knowledge or anyone to go to for that information. Since March of 2011 I started out able to eat healthier and still hating exercise. I stuck with that pattern until last year when I was faltering with my eating and loving exercise thanks to Cardio Class and the teacher of that class Jasmyn. Now in 2013 I'm addicted to the "punishment" of exercise. I like it hard and fast (please keep a clean mind!) and have noticed myself on Saturdays pushing myself in the smaller class to finish first even though there isn't a competition! I make it a mental one.
I am still trying to go past the binge eating. Last night I confess to a lot of chocolate and oreos with a glass of milk. It was quite good though so I'm not feeling guilty except for the fact I'm ignoring the hunger signals and going straight to cravings. It just isn't healthy and I know it fully well. I'm trying to think of things to fall back on when a craving hits because my supremely stubborn nature isn't enough to fight cravings. I'm loving herbal teas so at home I'm going to deploy my little bagged soldiers if I can't get a craving to pass. I have Nestle hot chocolate (80 calories a packet) if I can't get chocolate cravings. This is only an emergency plan for that though. Lets see how long 6 packets can last with my chocoholic tendencies. And for at work I am going to leave my debit card either at home or in the car to avoid buying things and have gum and pre-packed snacks at the ready. I already almost always pack my lunch so that's not a problem.
At the moment I don't know of anything that would work for me other than staying accountable. I've said it before that I would post on here more for that and I'm again going to try to stick at it.
So now with my addiction to exercise, my teas, and my gum I'm going to do better. No trying just doing!
