Crave binge cycle.

Thursday, June 24, 2010

I`ve noticed a pattern

Past few days I`ve been feeling binging urges. Yesterday I went over by 300, and today by 200. And I started thinking, just why do I get this now, when last week was so easy? Last week I was frequenty under and having to add an extra snack. I was thinking, I don`t see how I could ever stray from plan like this!!

But this week, I was craving, and I had eaten to the limit of cals and I wanted to finish off these raisin bread. So I went to bed instead. But I woke up at 3 in the morning, and in a daze proceded to eat the bread. That was really weird.

Partly why did I have raisin bread in the first place, Because I was having these left over cals and in theory one of them would do as a treat.

However what I guess is PMS related since I was writing about similar cravings about this time last month. Only now I had actually had bingey foods.

So I guess that I did not handle it well. I got over confident last week what with my seemingly iron will. I just cannot have these kinds of foods in the house in anything more than a single serving.

Treating myself is fine, but say i want ice cream, when I next go shopping I buy a single small tub, and enjoy it when I get home or later that night. Healthy snacks are to be kept in abundence of course.

I have trigger foods I admit it, so it`s back to not having them in the house. It`s just easier like that and you know what I don`t even miss them when they`re not there.

    I agree - knowing your trigger foods and then just not keeping them around is the wisest course. Be kind to yourself, keep up the good work. Remember - it's not about perfection. It's about consistency.
