My day started ok. I ate oatmeal with raisins for breakfast. I decided to skip the breakfast at church to avoid temptation. I ate a light lunch since I knew that we were having dinner at my sister's at 4:00 p.m.
The afternoon didn't go as well as I would have liked. I wouldn't necessarily classify what I did as a binge, but I ate stuff that I definitely should not have. I ate two Little Debbie brownies (no, I don't keep them in the house. my husband occasionally has a "secret stash", and I found them). Then I ate one of the chocolate "nests" that I made to take to my sisters. Of course this large amount of sugar had to be followed by something salty, so I ate a couple of handfuls of Chex Mix and peanuts.
As I was eating this junk, I began the old unwise thought process. "Well, since I've blown it I should go to Kroger tomorrow after work and either buy the home made chocolate/peanut butter egg that I saw yesterday, or I should buy a six pack of Reese's eggs and eat them!!". Nope. Not gonna do it.
I did ok at dinner, I guess. I ate many things that are not currently part of my healthy eating plan. Mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, a biscuit with butter. With the exception of the mac & cheese (my sister makes the best EVER) I ate small portions. The only sweet thing I ate was some "fluffy" fruit salad that includes Cool Whip and sour cream.
Overall, I was content with dinner. I didn't eat until I was stuffed or felt sick. I did eat things that I shouldn't eat on a regular basis, but I ate them in fairly small quantities and these aren't really "trigger foods".
A few minutes ago, I found my husbands chocolate stash and ate a few pieces. Between this and my minor binge earlier, I'm not really happy with my day.
I will not dwell on any of this and use it is an excuse to continue. As of this minute, I am back to my healthy eating plan. I think that a quote from Roni's blog (http://ronisweigh.com) sort of fits here:
It’s not what we do occasionally that makes the difference. It’s what we do consistently.
