Got a surprise day off today and actually ate reasonably healthy today for the first time in ages! And we went for a short hike nearby and did sprint intervals at a track. Fun day :] back in the saddle!
I have been going to the gym for a week now and I really love it. but what I'm having issues is with my eating. I binge eat frequently and it makes me feel so terrible when I am not ingesting the proper foods. I don't know how to manage it Help!!
I too suffer from binge eating and always will because it is a mental disease and addiction. Now I have it managed pretty well but there are still weeks when I am triggered more than others to binge!
The key is recognizing the problem is within you and not some food item. Like I used to just throw away all my peanut butter because that was a major trigger food for me but I would just replace it with something else because a void needed to be filled within me and it didn’t matter what it was! So now whenever I am triggered, I will sit down and actually write how I’m feeling and why I believe I’m feeling compelled to binge. I actually helps me avoid binging most times! But when I do binge, I genuinely just snap right back and get over it because now I realize that is all I can do. Reminiscing over how terrible you feel for binging will only make it worse because binge eating is an emotional stress disorder. So give yourself a break!
