Ahh, I had quite the long weekend, albeit inadvertently. No matter the reason, it was nice to have some down time. Ever since I’ve been doing double-duty at work I’ve felt pretty exhausted, and pretty dreadful every morning on my way to work. Now, the two extra days off from work last week mean more work this week, but somehow I think it was worth it. I did eat my way through the weekend (not exactly doctors orders, but a nice excuse nonetheless). But, I’m feeling kind of gross, like I need a detox and perhaps some vegetables.

SawSaw: Sorry it took me so long to respond to your question; I was pretty lax on posting this weekend. When I was younger I think I fell into some behavior that would be considered binging, and I do think that I organically grew out of it, but I think that was because my relationship with food changed. When I was younger I really saw food as a vice, and felt a lot of guilt associated with what I ate, so when I ate something that made me feel guilty I would just pile on the guilt because I was already feeling bad it was a pretty bad cycle. I’ve since stopped seeing how I eat as a diet, and just how I eat, and when I indulge, I’m happy for the indulgence-but also try to balance things out afterward by being a little more careful for a day or so till my body feels like it’s back at an equilibrium. I try to keep from going from either extreme in my eating-which I think keeps me from feeling the need to binge. But, having said that, I’m not a nutritionist, nor am I a health care professional. There are lots of causes for our behaviors, so please only take what I say with a grain of salt-as it’s only my opinion.

Tonight I may be getting dinner with my mom and my aunt, but plans are still tentative. Not sure what the deal for tonight is-but I do believe there’s an exercise DVD in my future, as I was feeling particularly lazy this morning and the only activity I could muster was a shower.

Here’s the food:

Oatmeal with lite sour cream
Grape Juice
Green Tea

Salad with lettuce, tomato, cucumber and tuna
Lite Vinaigrette
