Breaking the Cycle of Binge Eating Disorder

I’ve been exploring “intuitive eating” and have found some very interesting things happen. I’ve actually thrown away food, stopped eating in the midst of what would normally be a full blown binge, put food back for “later” and then not eaten it later rather – gave it to my husband to eat, and gave in…

The definition of insanity….

Today I experienced an encounter that would previously cause me to binge. The stress from the day would usually lead me to searching for something to soothe the negative feelings. You see, when I feel attacked, or like someone is cornering me, I get defensive and i internalize those feelings. When I do this I…

One meal, one day at a time.

It’s no secret I have issues with food, but I also have some big goals. Today is a new day, the first day of a new year, and I’m home from work – sick. Great! I hate being sick, but it is a double edged sword. On one end it sucks because I would like…

31 days of clean foods: reflection

Today I decided, as my 31 days comes to a close, to write a little bit about this past month. The last few days have not been the best, I haven’t been completely true to my “clean” rules as I have outlined, I have been dealing with menstrual cramps that are not giving me any…

31 days of clean food: day 24-25

Well, Christmas is a time for family, friends, giving, and getting…. FAT. Okay, okay, I won’t be dramatic, but these last two days have not been easy for me. Christmas Eve we went to my moms house, but not before hitting the gym – I did some cardio in the morning but I’m really finding…

31 days of clean foods: day 20

Woke up and weighed in – it’s been about a week and a half so I figured I’d check on my progress. Up 3lbs…. I think that goes to show you a diet soley based on trail mix and quest bars is probably not the “ideal” so I will be better this week. I know…

31 Days of clean foods: day 18

Day 18 was like any other, woke up at 5am and headed to the gym for Body Pump. About 10 minutes prior to pump I consumed a small apple, 2 eggs, and 1 slice of Ezekiel toast. I felt good during pump, I had energy and really felt strong. After class I headed home to…

31 days of clean foods: day 14&15

December 14th. Day 14. It was a slow Sunday – nothing was really planned but I felt a sense of energy that I hadn’t felt in quite some time, so I decided to get up for fasted cardio. I got to the gym around 9am and I hit the stairmaster at level 9 – which…

31 days of clean foods: day 9

Today I woke up 5am, I had a shake with one scoop of metabolic nutrition protizyme, 1 organic banana, and about 1/2 cup muscleegg before heading to the gym for my workout. I got to the gym for the Beach body burn groupX class at 6am. The class didn’t really get started until around 6:10…

31 Days of Clean Foods: Day 1

Today is my first day back to work after 5 days off, the first day of December, and the first day of my self proposed 31 days (I changed it to 31 days to be the full month of December) of clean foods. Here’s my criteria for what constitutes as “clean” : All produce All…
