Over the weekend I had a slight binge attack. I say slight because it was nothing like I've done in the past. I did eat an entire loaf of challah bread. Gotta love that stuff. The nectar of the yeast gods. It was freshly baked, too. I also had a brownie. I can't believe I'm even talking about it here since I usually eat this way when no one is looking. The slight part is that I ate these foods over a two day period. In the past I might have had them in a span of a few hours.
Another difference this time was that when I finished them, I was done. I even rode my bike Saturday, Sunday, and today for 30-40 minutes each day. In the past I would have laid around like a stuffed toad. So I think I'm learning a new appreciation of self.
And today I was right back to eating according to my plan. I'm tweaking it a little because as we all know diets can get complicated what with all the planning and recipes, etc. I'm keeping it simple this week. Sometimes I have to take the focus off the food because it leads to overeating. Less on the menu gives me less anxiety.
It feels good to sit here and know that I had my fling with food this past weekend but I didn't gain from it and I'm setting my sights back on the goal. Yeah!
Breathe deep and relax, drink your water, and reflect on the best part of today!
