Ok, I don't know why I feel compelled to pat myself on the back, but I just can't help it!
Yesterday, I had so many binge triggers going on, but I didn't do it! I stayed within my calories.
My son was sick with a fever and terrible cough (still is, btw), I had only slept 1 1/2 hours (I was up at night with him and then couldn't fall asleep after), I was feeling sick, I had a horrible headache and I also had my monthly visitor (if you know what I mean). Normally, any of those would be enough to send me over the edge and into binge town, but I didn't do it!
What I did instead...I had 4 healthy macaroons (70 calories each) and that, for some reason, made me feel satisfied. Usually, I wouldn't want something that calorically expensive, but they are 2 inches high and wide so quite substantial and made of raw, healthy ingredients, for the most part.
I would have felt so much worse this morning had I given in and had thousands of extra calories.
