Falling off the Bandwagon, and Getting Back on!

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
Set Goals
& remember that it's going to be OK. 

Have you ever struggled with binge eating?

What do you do to steer clear of temptations?


  1. I just posted something very similar! I've had a bad week with food and exercise and I'm getting back on track TONIGHT! I love that quote "what you eat in private, you will wear in public." Oh so true!

    1. Glad to know I'm not the only one! :) Thanks for stopping by!!

  2. I have issues with binge eating on high stress days. Not pretty but like you said you can't beat yourself up you just have to move on! I must remember!
