If you’re like me, you may have found yourself eating oatmeal, salads and chicken breasts one day-then going crazy with a container of ice cream the next. I really live too much of life like that.
Sometimes when I go to the grocery story I really don’t even know who I am that day. I know I should buy the healthies, but hey, how about throwing a pint of Salted Caramel Crunch in there just in case I need to go crazy. When I think about it, and especially when I write about it, it’s so ridiculous. Who lives their life like that?!
So starting now I’m going to try to seek balance. Have a reasonable breakfast. Oatmeal is great, but throw some walnuts in for protein and staying power. A tortellini salad for lunch is both yummy, filling and sugar free. For a snack I’m having an apple and some peanut butter. And for dinner glazed salmon, rice and broccoli.
Not dieting. Not binging. It’s a middle ground place that I really need to stay in. Yes, I can lose a lot of weight quickly eating oatmeal, salads and plain chicken. But it’s boring and I hate it and I end up going crazy with the Salted Caramel ice cream. I really want to stay in that middle place of feeling satisfied with a good meal. It’s almost a foreign concept to me. But not for long.
And ultimately I really think I can lose weight spending my days like this. Not as quickly. But how quickly do I lose going from dieting to binging? I don’t really lose anything at all because I’m constantly losing then gaining again.
And that’s why I started this blog. I need to be accountable for all the crazy things I do, be aware of them and to stop them.
Feeling satisfied with a good meal is my current goal. Not dieting. Not binging. Just satisfied. At least I’ll be getting off the dieting/binging track.
