After my short shift this morning I headed towards my old neighborhood to see my doctor. My foot issue is ongoing and I need it taken care of before the marathon!
I hit up the doctor and the bank before stopping by my mom’s. If you’ve read the blog since it started sucked you might remember I lived here most of the early years. Right out of college I worked as a recruiter and would work from home 2 days a week from this place. I look back on that time with mixed feelings because it was a happy time in my life, but I had a lot of big struggles with bingeing and overeating.
Even though I’m still working on it everyday, I have gotten a lot better about random snacking. I look back on many of those posts from two-three years ago and realize I was constantly eating, binging or starting a new diet of sorts. Sad sad sad.
The combination of being a chubby kid and dieting in college started a vicious cycle of binging and restricting for me. Since I’m still not at goal I don’t give myself credit for the progress I have made with Intuitive Eating. I am a lot better now, just need to clean up the snacking a bit to get to goal.
I’ve been mulling all this over for a while and am going to give myself a little 90 challenge to end the year strong Stay tuned!
But, in the meantime I am celebrating my progress with intuitive eating! This has taken a lot of work (and is still on going) and I’m proud of it.
Of course, I did the first thing you’re supposed to do at your mom’s house – raid her fridge and pantry! SCORE! I found juicy watermelon and cheesecake factory bread (no pic).
And a bite or two of dessert. I just realized I ate out of the carton while sick! Crap, I better finish that ice cream off before someone else eats it and gets sick… The winner of the Wish-bone Salad Dressing Sampler Pack is :
