Reflecting on yesterday

April 14, 2011

I had a small binge after dinner again yesterday. While it wasn’t that significant calorie-wise, I was eating manically. I really thought I was setting myself up for success…. I had a solid dinner, brushed my teeth, got ready for bed… but still managed to grab for ice cream and chocolate. What I’ve learned for this is that it’s NOT just about deciding not to… I need to actively reflect and recognize when I’m seeking comfort. I need to find other ways to soothe myself. I’ve never tried meditation before, but I’ve always heard wonderful things and would love to give it a try. I’ll try to listen to some podcasts to see what they’re like on my way to class tonight. (I have a 90 minute commute to grad school.)

In more positive news, I went to the gym at lunch yesterday!  I’m fortunate that my workplace is attached to a mall with a nice gym. I did a 15 minute ab class and then 20 minutes on the recumbent bike while reading journal articles for a research paper. I’m still nervous about trying high-impact cardio with my back, but I need to give it a shot soon because my marathon training’s supposed to start in 4 weeks!

Without further ado, here’s my accountability list of yesterday’s foods!  Sorry it’s so tiny – I need to figure out the formatting better.

I’m starting today off with a green monster.  Even though I’m slipping up with sweets at night, I’m feeling good about this week overall!

    My binges tend to be after dinner as well, I wonder what the link is there? What podcasts are you referring to?
