Bad Day Binge

14 Comments 1566 views

I’m having a REALLY bad day. I spend most of my time buried in code trying to figure out a technical problem for a client which is still unsolved. I’m alone with the kids which isn’t bad but, well, you know, it’s harder. I’m leaving for the beach in 2 days (ohh poor me, right?) and my house looks like a bomb literally went off.

I was managing everything pretty well until tonight when I caught myself wanting to steal handfuls of chocolate chips form the bag and dip pretzels in the jar of peanut butter.

Damn.

Ok, I can’t lie.

I DID steal handfuls of chocolate chips and dip pretzels in the peanut butter jar.

I’m not quite sure that happened. It was like an out of body experience.

Stress eat much?

ugh.

I totally identify with the article. If you have binge eating tendencies you may find it helpful.

Anyway, it is what it is. I’m trying to focus on the beach. Tomorrow Little Bean and I will be cleaning and packing and then I’ll be spending some good old quality family time. We need it! The Husband has been working nearly around the clock. It’s like crazy deadline time or something.

I did make an awesome dinner and a fun snack today. Both of which I’m planning on getting up on GreenLiteBites. Check them out…

oh! and I just posted this fun Avocado Orange Salsa…

Ok, let me sum up this post for you so far.

Food, food and, oh… umm… gee…. more food.

Obsess much?

Wow. I’m in a mood today, aren’t I?

That’s what too much computer time with no adult conversation will do to ya. ;)

Let me end with something that makes me smile.

This was my view at dinner.

They freakin’ rock!

I can’t wait for beach time with my boys!

Quick note to take care of business… Teresa won the BlogHer tickets! Will be reaching out shortly!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Take a good night sleep and regroup. And remember that one binge night wont make you overweight, just like one night of *just salad and water* wont make an overweight person lose any fat either. This is a lifestyle. Remember how awesome you’re, how awesome you look (those Color Run pics? Damn!)and you do things that makes people go “Whooaaa!!!”.

    Since you’re not a robot, your mood swings. It happens to all of us. Endure the bad times, your vacation is so close you can touch it :) and all work (yours and the husband) will pause for quite some time and you’ll get awesome family time together. Hang in there! *insert poster of kitty hanging from a fence*

    I can totally relate. Been there and done it. I think any of us who can relate are one meal away from eating off the rails. Take care , get back on track ASAP with clean eating and vacations and family time are great ways to relax. Safe travels. Karen P

    That bingey thing was contagious — I had it, too. I think I ate all my carb and protein allowances by 2 p.m. yesterday while goofing on Facebook and procrastinating about stuff I had to get done.

    I had a bad day yesterday, too. :( Making today a great day, though!

    Hey Roni. I love reading your blog; your entries are so honest and full of energy. And your “self-disclosure” reminds me of an old saying, “Until we agree to suffer, there will be no end to the suffering”. While that may sound like a negative sentiment to some, to me that quote means that until I am honest with myself about what is going on within me I will continue to be tormented by it (if what’s going on within me is unwanted). One of the most important things I have learned on my weight loss journey is to stay in today; beating myself up (I’m not saying that’s what you were doing, btw ;-) ) for what I did or didn’t do well yesterday only makes it that much easier for me to “let myself down” again today. I’m not perfect and don’t expect to be! I can even find gratitude for my missteps because, if nothing else, they motivate me to do things differently in this moment. And this moment is all I really have (and is the only thing that’s real)! Thanks again, Roni.

    You are so generous to share this. I too struggle this way. I have tried and am trying many strategies. But the moving on with self-acceptance is one I learned from you. Thank you.

    I seem to remember that post-mudder was a binge time for you, right?? So perhaps your body wants a HUGE amount of food to make up for the weekend?? Just a thought. I know it doesn’t feel good in any case, as I learned two days ago with a box filled with gluten free brownies…..and, the almonds…..

    Thanks again for helping me. Dawn

    Dear Roni,
    I’ve been wanting to send you a message for sometime now. I’ve been a avid reader and HUGE fan since I started following you here and on greenlitebites well over a year ago. You have inspired me in so many ways, you are my secret mentor from across the country. I just did my first Tough Mudder event in Southern California. And I just blogged about it. I’m sure messages like this are probably a needle in a haystack but on a wing and a prayer and a little bit of post Mudder bravery I just wanted to share it with you. I hope you read it. I hope you love it.
    For my 30th birthday my husband (and my biggest fan) gave me an amazing gift. He signed me up to come to Fit Bloggin’ 2012. I can’t wait to meet you and give you a proper hug and thank you.
    I hope that you know that even on your most blah days in the heart of Funkville and you are a gem and make a difference to so many.
    Thank you so much!
    Sincerely,
    Danielle

    Hi Roni;
    This was a great article. It’s funny how we can do 99/100 things right and the one bad thing we do, we feel really guilty. Your food photos are a constant reminder that eating well means eating great tasting foods. I am on my own personal journey and I am slowly trying to improve my health conditions. The photos hit the spot, thanks.

    I feel you, Roni! I’m not much of a stress eater usually, but I am a boredom & procrastination eater…and having a day like this feels like doo-doo! Luckily, there’s always tomorrow :)
    p.s. The boys are so adorable.
