    Hmmmm....coffee....I'm off too. I'm having breakfast in your yesterday.
    Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday...

    Hee.

    One of the most difficult things I'm finding is this: after eating certain foods -- usually, those that are sweeter -- when I'm done with a serving, my immediate reaction is MORE PLEASE. I've been careful not to act on that MORE PLEASE this week; instead, I've been noting it (and then ignoring it). I wonder if part of binging can be attributed to certain addictive foods? Maybe it's not 100% in our heads, but part of it really can come down to how our bodies process certain foods?

    I've had this my entire life. No matter how much I eat, when I'm done I'm automatically walking to the fridge again. What helps me is to eat a smaller amount first, so I can go to the fridge again to get more food without calling it "binging"
    well then

    **nods** That's a good tactic. This week, I've been distracting myself, so once I get that MORE PLEASE feeling, I start doing something else. That helps me ignore the impulse to gorge.

    Last night I was struck by The Hunger. All down to not eating any red meat yesterday (an accident of household mismanagement!) and waited and waited for it to go. I made a snack in a bowl of some chicken breast, capsicum and mayonaise. And guess what...? It stopped me being hungry. Amazing. If I take something from the fridge outside a designated meat time I need to put it in a bowl or on a plate and treat is as nourishment rather than comfort.

    I did however go into a craving for porridge (a binge food) and was almost in tears over it. But I didn't succumb, and that is progress.

    You rock, Dexy.

    Today was a bad day. Apparently, ice cream is a trigger food. I'm going to have to lay down the law: we can't have ice cream in the house that I eat. Flavors I don't eat? No worries. Hopefully, my family will be cool about it. Hey, they have all their cookies and doughnuts and pretzels and chips here in the house, and I can handle it, so they should be fine about no ice cream.

    Man, I really fucked up today. But that's okay. One day of binging doesn't define me. Tomorrow will be a better day.

    So that's another trigger food identified! I'm grateful for small mercies, I don't like icecream. Yeah, get rid of it from the house.

    Tell me, how is your mindset after a bad binge day? I admire your mindset, it doesn't define you at all, but so hard to get past self-flagellation zone.

    It's fairly lousy at the moment -- still beating myself up, you know? But I'm doing my best to take a deep breath and focus on being healthy today, not lamenting over how I wasn't yesterday. I'm committing to going to CrossFit at noon, so that's something to look forward to. And I promised my sons pizza for dinner tonight, so this afternoon I'm going to be making a cauliflower-crust pizza for me while my family has the store-bought wheat variety. And I have fresh strawberries for a tasty treat.

    How does it go? Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance!
