Having a calm weekend


Last week I felt out of control (due to Corona) and binged almost everyday – feeling shame and guilt – and repeating…thinking “whats the point”
Friday after I ate a burger/fries/chocolate I decided this virus situation is a perfect time to dive deep into my eating…
I usually use the excuse “well this event is going on” or “were all going out to eat so I have to indulge”
So its almost like this is it! I can’t use the excuse of other people tempting me or inviting me out for food/drinks…I would also think “well if I didn’t have so many social things going on the food part will be easy….” Its like this whole circumstance was created for me – and i almost feel like i want to prove my thought right…does that make sense?
Happy to report i’ve stuck to my protocol without much desire to overeat and feeling eerily in control – but can’t help but worry this honeymoon will end soon…
I liked when Brooke said “wouldn’t it be great if you could say I changed my life during the Corona virus and got serious about overeating…No better time to pick a goal and go for it…I’m gonna focus on this instead of the virus…
How can I get more empowering thoughts like this to keep me on track? And wanting to prove that social distancing causes me to hone in on my eating – is that a useful thought?
