Yesterday I did something I haven't done in awhile...
I fell off the bandwagon.
I had an un-planned cheat day - that consisted of me stuffing my face at my boyfriends house with cookies, Amish friendship bread, cookie salad and chocolate dipped pretzels until I was STUFFED.
It was NOT a pretty sight.
I knew I had the self control to not take any of his Mom's treats...
(she was randomly baking up a STORM of the most delicious smelling things..)
But for some reason I gave in to temptation.
Any fellow bloggers who food binge know that one cookie leads to just one more, which usually leads to a full on binge fest of stuffing your face without any regard to the consequences.
A day where you food binge usually results in guilty feelings, and the mindset that the "whole day" is wasted so there is no point in fixing it - and eating healthy.
I am a recovering food-aholic. Through my journey I have food binged less and less!
Until yesterday.... I couldn't even remember the last time I went crazy like that!
There is nothing I can do now, except:
Hop BACK on the bandwagon
Remember why I started
Plan for success
Remember I need to fuel my body - not treat it like a trash can
& remember that it's going to be OK.
Have you ever struggled with binge eating?
What do you do to steer clear of temptations?
