Need to work on recovery more

Friday, March 25, 2016

Once every few months, my friend and I have lunch at an amazing pizza place, and we have calzones. Even cut in half, they are very high calorie and fat. I know I'll be over on those days.

Last night I planned on going home and cooking fish and veggies for dinner, which would have been a good recovery for an indulgent lunch. But no, I was tired and kinda cranky, so I binged on junk instead and went WAY over my calories and under my protein and fiber.

I'm good at recovery the next day, I'll do great today. But I want to work on better balance for when I know I'm going to have an indulgent lunch and need to have a better dinner.

    Thanks for your honesty! Its hard to be open and vulnerable about binges. It's always been my habit to hide, keep it a secret, and pretend it didn't happen. Living in denial never gets you better. Great job, bringing it out into the light and dealing with it!
    Next step - instead of talking about it after you binge, talk about it before you binge.

    When I don't have the strength to say "NO" to the junk food, I rely on the strength of others who say "NO" for me. It really helps me to take that five minutes, before I put the junk in my mouth, to call someone or message someone about what I'm planning to eat. Stepping away from the food for a minute can help break the cycle. Once the binge countdown begins that binge rocket is leaving the launch-pad. For me I had to find a way to interrupt that countdown.

    Everyone has bad days, but never be discouraged & never stop moving forward.
