Binged this evening, but have NOT thrown in the towel.

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

Today was a very bleck day. I am lucky I have't hit this wall yet, since I started in April. I knew it would come and it did. And I DID not throw in the towel like I normally would have. And this makes me feel good.

Yes, I overate my recommended calories and felt bad about it afterwards, but I dusted myself off and made myself do my walk/jog any way. Instead of beating myself over it I decided to LOOK at why and try to figure it out. I realized that by examining why I overate I realized 2 big mistakes. 1- I would be too hungry when I would go to eat. To the point of eating whatever was quick and easy, hence chips. I realized that if I had planned and prepared ahead I would be less likely to eye those chips. 2- I have been going around 1200 calories and not 1500 calories day, and this is making me HUNGRY. So I need to maintain around 1400-1500 calories, that way I am less likely to binge.

I am now on "vacation" for 2 months until school starts up so need to maintain a routine to stay on track. Monday was a holiday in Quebec here, so it kind of messed up my whole work out routine, so it probably didn't help, but I won't start up again tomorrow and just let myself go tonight, I hopped right to it right off. THIS is a change for me, and for this I feel great! To actually SEE why I overate/binged on a food vs. hiding it away and being ashamed, I learned more.

    I think you had a great day, even though you binged - you stopped took a step back and figured out what was going on and even put a solution in place so it wouldn't happen again. And if it does you're only human - I would try and have healthy snacks around so that if you do binge you binge on them and then its not so bad of a binge.

    Tomorrow is a new day and I think today was an awesome learning day for you! Way to go getting back on track!
