Binge Bounce Back

Tuesday, May 05, 2015

Yesterday was my twenty-fifth birthday. Throughout the weekend and yesterday, which included birthday celebrations, I was not very good at sticking with my eating plan or exercise regiment.

Saturday I barely drank any water (but didn't drink much else) and honestly didn't eat much. Tom took me to see the new Avengers movie (I absolutely love the HULK) and I got a small package of candy, but not the good kind with dark chocolate, I got Sour Patch Kids which are covered in sugar. I cooked pork for dinner so that part wasn't as bad.

Sunday we went to Tom's parents house to pick up the motorcycle. There is a restaurant near there that we rarely go to because it is far away and a bit expensive. However, since it was almost my birthday, Tom decided to treat me. It is an old church that the owners converted into an Irish-style restaurant, the Holy Grail. I got Guiness marinated steak tips with fresh green beans and rice pilaf. I ate all of the steak and green beans, but told myself not to eat all the rice and I didn't. That night, my mom threw me a birthday BBQ. We had grilled chicken, pasta salad, and tossed salad (the menu was my idea because I didn't want the weekend to be totally awful as far as eating). The real kicker was ending the night with ice cream sundaes.

Yesterday (my actual birthday), a friend took me to Olive Garden for lunch. I am a total carbaholic (pasta, bread, I love it all) and only got the mini spaghetti and had three breadsticks (which is nothing for me haha), but then Tom and I only had ice cream for dinner!!

Long story short, I am taking the rest of this week to get back on track! I did not track hardly anything this weekend because none of it I had prepared so I was unsure of what to track. Today is a new day though! I need to bounce back from this binge and get back in the swing of things.

    Birthday dinner sounds amazing. It's tough to recover after a binge, but I bet you already bounced back :)

    Sounds like a wonderful weekend! You deserve to celebrate. Life is all about balance.

    I'm a total carbaholic too!! Then you swing it back on track and it's all good.

    Here's to a healthy, active week!

    I hope you had an awesome birthday! I am a big pasta lover and I only allow myself to eat at Olive Garden about once a year. I swear their food is crazy addicting!

    You have already taken the very important step of acknowledging your binge and deciding to move past it. Definitely don't sweat it! Reading all about your food this early really made me hungry!!! emoticon

    Keep up the great work! emoticon emoticon
