To Binge or Not to Binge

Decisions, decisions. The road on the left is ...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.
