I binged once this week, ONCE! That’s it! It may not seem like an amazing thing to you all, but it’s great for me. The really amazing thing? It was one “small” binge, after it happened I stopped myself. Like, on a normal day, I would have binged, said “fuck it” and kept on binging all day. Not that day. I binged at lunch time, ate well the rest of the week.
Let’s see, what else… I’ve still been struggling with my coke problem. I’m really trying to cut back, hasn’t been going so great. But hey, it’s a new week! My grandma made brownies (caramel ones, yucky) and I was craving chocolate sooo badly, so I had a tiny corner piece. That’s all! :-) So, I let myself have a treat.
I’ve been eating much more protein as well. I made myself eggs when I got up this morning (LOL At like 2pm…). I also have been having some type of meat for dinner everyday. I’d say this week was good.

That’s only part of it. It’s learning to eat what you want, but in moderation. The point is you never deprive yourself, even from things like cookies and ice cream. You’re supposed to learn how to eat what you want, when your body needs it without going overboard.
Intuitive eating is an approach that teaches you how to create a healthy relationship with your food, mind, and body—where you ultimately become the expert of your own body. You learn how to distinguish between physical and emotional feelings, and gain a sense of body wisdom. It’s also a process of making peace with food—-so that you no longer have constant “food worry” thoughts. It’s knowing that your health and your worth as a person do not change, because you ate a food that you had labeled as “bad” or “fattening”.

it’s going amazing! I woke up pretty late (10:32 - I always remember the exact time I wake up for some reason), so I wasn’t hungry. Everything went POO so I left home, now I am at my grandma’s. We went shopping, when I got back it was 12:35 and I was hungry since I hadn’t eaten! I haven’t had ice cream in months and we bought some so I got a tiny bowl (like half a serving?) ate it slowly and I was full. I got bored and thought about eating, but I told myself no. Now it’s been almost 2 hours and I’m hungry again, so I am making food!
Honestly, this is so much better than having to stand there and plan every single meal, track every single calorie, measure every single morsel of food. I love it.
