It’s the weekend again and I got sucked into yet another binge-cycle. I’ve been drinking a lot of diet coke lately and I did not want to drive all the way to our military post on a Saturday to get a bottle (I can’t stand the German version of diet coke, so I have to get it on post). As my day progressed, I started getting the usual withdrawal symptoms – light headache, cravings for something sweet, etc. I had visions of this wonderful slice of layered cake that I couldn’t get out of my head. Eventually, I decided to act on the craving and went with my son to the Eiscafe for some ice-cream and then to the grocery store, where we bought dinner and a bunch of junk…. So you know how the rest of my day went.
It is now Sunday. So, again, I was at a junction: continue low-carb or continue binge. Hmmmm… I still had some rolls for breakfast and left-over junk food that I didn’t eat yet. The decision should’ve been quite easy: get back to low-carb, of course. That’s when my cravings are at bay. But then I looked at the other stuff and decided that I don’t want to miss out on the other goodies that I still had on the counter. So the binge continued.
Update: Monday, I was back on track. Of course I was. I’ve been playing this game for a long time now. Eat on plan without trouble while I have a structured day at work, then binge on the weekend, because I always find an excuse to eat my beloved junk. It doesn’t make sense to negate all the progress I’ve made during the week, but the lure is still too strong.
