Anyway on to food intake, which I've been avoiding writting about recently. I have been craving a lot of 'bad foods' this last week, and have had quite a few binge days. This caused me to feel pretty low and I weighed myself this morning (yes yes I know, bad Ellie, giving in to eating disordered behaviour blah blah blah) and was not paticularly pleased. From last Saturday to today my weight has increased by 2lbs. Now here is the good part: I don't care. Could't give a crap. I know I overindulged, and I know that I will persist with my attempt at trying to eat halthilty and not binge. I know restriciting would cause WAY more damage than good. So my plan: keep eating when I am hungry, but changing the things I eat into good, nutritious food (dates, almonds, oranges, etc) but OF COURSE I will still be letting myself eat the foods I really enjoy (chocolate, pasta, scones etc) but in MODERATION...that word used to be the bain of my existance because I just didn't feel like I could ever eat in moderation, or find the middle between binges and restricting. But I finally feel I am starting to grasp the middle.
Here is what I have eaten so far today (it's early afternoon) :
Breakfast: Honey nut cornflakes, not the healthiest ceareal but I was craving something sweet this morning.
Coffee and a yoghurt.
And I'm about to go and make lunch of scambled eggs on toast. And will have a snack of celery with peanut butter and raisens.
So to wrap this post up, any running tips would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
