mini-binge!

Posted by: billie In: bad girl|bingeing

I just ate a little tortilla pizza, a hot dog and a hershey bar! i’ve been so good all day, but i now realize that i have got to slow down on the carbs, they are really making me crave!

I have spent the last 2 days playing it safe, trying to eat low-cal, high protein to remove those 2 extra pounds. And i had done so well…until…

After going to applebee’s for dinner i was still only around 700 calories for today so i decided to splurge with a few low-cal margaritas.This is why i shouldn’t drink while trying to lose weight: i always get to a point where i’m about half drunk and want to eat something carby to absorb the alcohol. Tonight i wanted pizza, so i thought i would be good and make a lovely little tortilla pizza with spinach, feta and sun-dried tomatoes with a little ff mozzarella (only 320 cal) and it was delicious….but just not enough, so i had a hot dog (175) and then a hershey’s with almonds (210). Total binge calories= 705! A mini-binge because i’ve been known to reach the 1000s.

I still haven’t gotten around to exercising! That’s my goal for tomorrow.

Saturday activity: nothing

Saturday food: ff cottage cheese (80), my fresh sugar-free jam (10). coffee (40). peanut butter (145) and jam (10) on a lite bun (80). greek yogurt with honey (140). homemade soft taco (260). fake crabmeat (90) with butter (25). EAS protein shake (110). total saturday calories= 990.

Sunday activity: a lot of shopping and a lot of laying around

Sunday food: greek yogurt with honey (140), cottage double (100), coffee (10) with splenda and ff half n half (30). Almonds (100), 1/2 order of spicy shrimp diavolo (250). 1 dark chocolate square (65). 2 1/2 low-cal margaritas (265). The MINI-BINGE (705).  Total sunday calories= 1665.

Let’s just consider it a “zig up” in calorie zig-zagging! You just need a few moderate/low days to balance it out.

700 calories is a pretty restrained binge in my opinion, it’s what 1/5 of one pound? No biggie. Forgive yourself & move on!

Saturday was my binge day because I had a bridal shower and a cookout all in one day, but today I got back on at 1200 calories. Good luck!

It’s funny how what we now call binges are NOTHING compared to what we used to do!
