Ah, Crap.

Thursday, February 07, 2013

Well today isn't all blue skies, that's for sure.

The good:
This morning I was tired and thought I would just walk easy for 30 minutes and eek out 100kcal. Instead I burned 150 using the incline function.
I worked for a good 6 hours today (money...) and I'll put in another two this evening.

The bad:
I was at 1300 calories today after eating breakfast (495) , lunch (390) , two servings of cheerios, an eggo and a homemade hot chocolate(415). I was still craving chocolate, though! I made a batch of low-calorie cookies (basically cooked icing with walnuts but they're low calorie and stop the cravings). Somehow I ate an entire 1000 calorie batch. Ok, 2300 calories, I can stop now. Oh, and a few glasses of milk... 2600kcal. But there's some chips left over and it's only a small amount... 2900kcal. I should make some yoghurt dip to go with them... 2940kcal... and the old man just opened some lime tostitos... 3300...

I finished the day at 3700 calories. I use the word finished lightly as I still haven't made dinner. I think the family can fend for themselves tonight, though. I'm not eating.

My net loss yesterday was 1100 calories. My net gain today is 1450. So if the math is right I should still be about 197lbs and one day of mistakes won't make a difference in the long run. I've gone 10 days without a single binge - that's something to be proud of. I'd like to go without another binge until the 22nd of this month - 15 days.

If I binge like this alone what will I do when we go up to the cottage for the weekend... surrounded by chips, alcohol and home-baked goods?

    One day will not harm you especially you recognized it. It's okay to treat yourself every now and then.

    One day isn't going to kill you or break the scale! Just take a moment to think about how it makes you feel--do you feel good when this happens? (To be honest, there are plenty of times when I go way off and binge or get that ice cream that I've wanted for so long.. and I eat the whole pint in a sitting and I think damn that was good!)

    I've been seeing a nutritionist for almost 2 years now, but I really call her my food therapist because I know the numbers, I know that "what to dos," I just can't get past some of the "why do i do thats". I come from a long line of emotional eaters from people who binge to people who have anorexia, and it's those deep-seated habits linked to emotions that can really be the hardest thing to overcome.

    Try to just make this a day that happened and tomorrow's a new day with a new set of choices you're ready to make! You've been doing great and this happens from time to time... just push yourself to be more aware of the "whys".
