my name is sharelle and i am addicted to eating at night.

even though my last post was all about thinking positive thoughts, i couldn’t help but think negative this morning.
i binged last night. bad.
almost a half box of cereal. luckily it was a low cal cereal. 80 cals per serving so i didn’t do as much damage as i used to when i would binge to the point of purging.
last night i was…stressed.
it was a long day…teaching two circuit classes, attending 2 very long academic classes. not being able to focus or concentrate all day. getting home after 9…knowing i have to wake up at 3:50 a.m. to open the gym. i wasn’t tired at all. i couldn’t sleep. i was browsing the internet…and kept grabbing handfuls of the cereal.
this morning…..my stomach hated me. bloated.
i was doing so well..all week. and then i felt like a failure. again.

i have a serious binge eating problem. i work out so much and then destroy it with my nutrition. i always start off everyday with a really good, filling, balanced meal for breakfast. throughout the day i do pretty well. and then at night, i just lose control and ruin the entire day. this is why my strength training is not showing anywhere. it’s all about nutrition!!
maybe i’m not eating enough protein? it’s just SO difficult with the schedule i have.
i can’t exactly cook when the only time i am home sometimes is not around the time i am hungry for a meal.
night classes do not help at all. the problem is, i’m not hungry enough for dinner before i leave..and when i get home it’s 9:00 p.m. and i feel like it’s too late for a meal. so i end up “snacking” and eating probably more calories than i would have had in a meal. it’s mentally exhausting.

i’m also not confident in my cooking abilities to cook good, lean proteins like meat. i’m deathly afraid i’m going to get food poisoning from cooking meat. it’s also just a pain in the ass for someone with such limited time.
i should really meal plan for the week.
GOAL FOR SUNDAY: MEAL PLAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i already started by making 15 protein pancakes and sticking them in the freezer for my breakfasts. this will definitely decrease my time in the mornings when i’m getting ready for the day. it will help tremendously in fact! i think i might make some egg muffins too..

    Eh it’s always tough with school, I have class spread out for 12 hours some days and it’s so hard to eat on campus. By the time you get home you just want to eat everything!
