So last night I binged on junk...I don’t even know why. It’s been a long time that I moved from popcorn, to chocolate, to crackers, to cheese, to hot chocolate, then to milk. Hahaha but in all seriousness. I have been trying to implement healthy choices to improve my wellbeing. But that doesn’t mean I am perfect and that I don’t struggle. I still struggle. I even tried asking myself some deep questions during the junk food fest. Like “Is this temptation worth my goal?” I answered, “Yes cheese is always worth it.” Haha I even justified the poor decisions by saying I ran 10 miles today, I’ve been soo good, I deserve a zone out-eat-in-front-of-tv junk binge. Honestly I don’t deserve that. I owe my body so much more than the junk I fed it last night. I wasn’t emotional, I was just bored and wanted it. Just because I’ve had great weeks of being healthy and a great workout doesn’t mean I can fuel my body with things that destroy it. I felt sick afterwards and this morning. So instead of beating myself up about this, I decided to journal this morning about how I felt and why I am choosing to move forward and not to be hung up on last night’s failures. I don’t even want to say that they are failures or junk food-I just want to remember how I felt. Last night’s choices didn’t move me towards my goal nor did they make my stomach or head feel great. I didn’t gain anything but rather a loss of good reputation with myself. After I journaled this morning, I vowed to stop thinking about it and move forward with the day I am in now. Now is the only time I have. What is my next best choice at this moment?
Talk to me. What junk food do you struggle with? How do you enjoy a snack without derailing? What questions do you ask yourself in these moments? -From one female work-in-progress to another-
