I’m apologizing right now because this post kind of has a Debbie Downer vibe going on.
This past week has been awful. I have been overeating, and what I consider bingeing- starting to eat something (usually sugar) and feeling like I can’t stop. It is completely ridiculous and out of control. I also keep telling myself that tomorrow is a new day and I will start over then. That is basically alcoholic thinking- and I would know.
If anyone out there is an over-eater, I really need advice. I have worked SO hard to lose over 30 pounds and I don’t want to undo my progress now. I am pretty sure that my job search stress has me reverting to my old ways.
I keep on thinking that there is a bigger issue here. I have been overweight all my life and have always had a terrible relationship with food, including some disordered eating. I have lost weight before but have always gained it back and this time I am determined to break that cycle. If anyone has advice or has gone through this themselves, please let me know what solution you have found. I am desperate.
Yep. I can relate… especially when it is one of my three food groups: sugar, coffee, or Chipotle.
Work continues to be busy, just as I predicted, but I actually like it that way because the time flies by. I have great Community Assistants and will really miss them when I leave. I also am grateful that one of my co-workers let me go home and take a nap today since I only managed to get 4 hours of sleep last night.
Tonight I baked hummingbird cake. What is that you ask? A recipe a modified from Food Network’s, which can be found here. Basically it is a spice cake with banana and pineapple. I added shredded coconut, and used butter instead of oil.
Butter makes everything better.
My phone takes crappy photos, so I didn’t take a picture, but it smells pretty awesome. It’s also covered with a cream cheese frosting, so that’s pretty calorie-tastic. Maybe I just need to stop baking so I don’t have tempting desserts around.
Tomorrow is a new day. Onward and upward.
Peace and Love,
