Two days ago, I almost binged.
I didn’t quite realise it at the time. But all the tell tale signs were there.
The day started off okay, it wasn’t my usual routine though. The thing that totally threw it out of whack was that I didn’t have my usual meals at the usual times.
Instead of having breakfast as soon as I get to work, I had a handful of nuts on the go.
Instead of having my usual lunch, I was out and about and grabbed something quick a bit later.
Because I had a late lunch, I wasn’t hungry at dinner and picked. Then I picked some more. I hadn’t done my weekly shop so I didn’t have much food around the house. But each time I picked I would have something small, and a little bit later I’d be hungry. Repeat.
Usually that kind of picking and eating small bits that don’t fill me up sets me up for a binge.
But in hindsight, the things I picked at were not really unhealthy, and the total quantity was not that different to a typical meal for me.
It’s nice to feel in control.
