Day 6

Monday, June 24, 2013

I had another mini-binge last night. I call it a mini-binge because it could have been much worse (and has been in the past). I started well, with a balanced breakfast and a piece of fruit for a morning snack. We had to go to a viewing for the mother of a friend and didn't get lunch until 3pm. Ate a 6-inch Subway chicken sandwich with lots of veggies - still doing OK. Things fell apart after 6pm. I was tired and I think I started eating to stay awake. I had a grapefruit, then a sugar-free ice cream bar, then chips, then another sugar-free ice cream, then more chips with sour cream. I made myself do 30 minutes on the exercise bike, drank some water, then went to bed....just to wake up at midnight with heartburn & indigestion. I had to get up and go downstairs for Tums to settle my stomach. I got back to sleep but didn't hear my alarm this morning and had to get breakfast when I stopped at the gas station on the way to work (string cheese, raw almonds, and V8 juice - I was proud of myself).

I'm determined to do better. I went to the grocery at lunch and got Mexican bean dip. Not the greatest choice, but I only ate 1/2 and had it with broccoli and cauliflower instead of chips (proud of that too). The veggies made me feel full a lot sooner than the chips would have.

I got some plain Greek yogurt and fresh strawberries for a snack later. I also bought myself some flowers for my desk. They lift my mood and make a great non-food treat. I'll have to find something to keep my mind (and hands) busy this evening. That seems to be my "danger zone".
