This past week was a busy week at work, but it was a good week overall. I didn’t have any binges at all, at least not so far. Saturday was not a great day nutritionally as it was full of a lot of sweets, but it was a relaxing day and the sweets were not part of binges. Sunday I decided to reset for a cleanse. I am so happy for myself for not binge eating this week.
A couple days this week I felt kind of hopeless. I felt like I had no emotions and that scared me because typically I am full of emotions. That feeling went away after a couple days. I think I just need to be a little more productive and do more things I enjoy.
Last week I set the goal to stop being so obsessive about food and menu planning. I think I made a lot of progress with that this past week. I didn’t obsess as much about when I might eat out or my menu for this upcoming week. I also came to the realization that I need to stop being so restrictive with my food. I typically say no to anything like cookies, cake, or ice cream. I realized if I allow myself to eat those foods and focus on moderation I won’t have as much of a desire to binge on them because I know I will be able to eat them. I won’t be eating like I will never get to eat them again.
I am looking forward to building on my wins and making even more progress this upcoming week!
