Sunday Binge

Sunday, October 14, 2018

Totally binged on cake, biscuits and bread yesterday. Something about rainy weather and rest days makes me crave carbs. It was our monthly morning tea after Mass, and the little old ladies insisted I take the leftovers home for my kids, which the kids love... Then my inner child "I want" took over - and I didn't even see it as a problem until I went to bed... Then I started to feel queasy from all the sugar. Looking back, I had an empty, hungry, wanting feeling all day. I need to work on identifying what I am actually wanting at those times. I don't think it is food. I thought it was sleep, but I napped all afternoon, then got up and started grazing again. Weirdly, I got up this morning and weighed myself expecting a good result. I gained a kg overnight. No massive insights, just wanted to record the self sabotage so I might notice and hit pause sooner next time.

    I had a bad weekend too - I like to celebrate a good week by completely sabotaging

    Learn to remove yourself from the situation or do something to occupy your time and get your mid off of it. Good luck for the next time.

    Yeah, boredom does it to me, too. Get out of the house, if at all possible. And the overnight gain could just be sodium...
    Good luck to you!

    Is it boredom? Since you said it was rainy and a rest day...maybe add some light activity? I am going through this now...for me it's a combination of boredom, procrastination, loneliness and dealing with a 6 month old breakup ugh. Anyway, it's great that you recognize you aren't truly hungry and wanting to focus on what the reason is that makes you eat. I appreciate your post because it makes me tune in to what I need to do instead of eating...go for a walk or do some jumping jacks or any activity that gets my blood flowing. Pain my nails!!! I can't eat if my nails are just freshly painted :) Journal, knit/crochet, draw...anything that keeps my hands busy.

    I get it and hopefully we'll fight our way through this! Have a great day!
