30 Bananas a Day!

Why post a smiling photo after I just got through binging?  

Why not?

Since when did binging turn into a crime?  It is a natural function of the brain and body after excessive under-eating.  

I have spent 5 days living the 80/10/10 lifestyle.  I am new and trying to understand it and live by it.  I've made mistakes and each and every day I under-ate.  

Today, I was on track to eating 2600 calories, but couldn't get the pudding down and I'll be damned if I was going to put another sweet anything into my mouth. I ended up having only 1700 calories tonight.

In the middle of the night, I began to craved the cooked food.  Yep, it happened.  I was either going to have the avacado or I was having rice, asparagus, zuchini and a tab of that not real butter stuff.  I think the fat from that was a lot lighter than the avacado.  But I'm just guessin. So, there it is.  

Okay, right back to the drawing board in the morning.  I've already planned to wake up have that water, which is already here by my computer.  I love it room temperature in the morning.  

I'll have that 700 calorie pudding in the morning.  And 1000 calories of bananas.  If I keep my breakfasts big, then I won't have a problem with under -eating or binging.  All I'll have left to clear is 800 more calories for the day.  I can possibly get in more than that.  I usually like a 600-700 cal lunch.  That leaves almost nothing at dinner.  Even though I can throw in another 500- 600 calories.  I'm excited!  Tomorrow is all planned out.  I see a successful day ahead.

And you were wondering why I had that big smile on my face!

@Sean - Beating up on self is not the way to go. I hope that I can help infect more people with the Winning Atittude towards their food!  I've been having some rice, but that was planned, because of not enough fruit.  My parents have brought an abundance of fruit in (so supportive).  I'm about to blog about it now.  So, bye, bye rice and potatoes!

@Rawchael - Thank you for your love.  Learning from mistakes totally works!  I'm glad to be moving forward.  Today was totally successful.  :)

Thanks Apollonia!  You're fabulouser!  :)

@Ayllx - thanks.  I love the waY I look at things.  Makes me smile. You make me smile too.  I love you in that hat.

@Traci - Yes, a bing only consists of veggies.  There was meat on the stove, cause my family is not vegan, but I passed it right over.  No interest.  I did have a big breakfast this morning.  1493 calories.  I just had 315 calories added with a few more bananas.  I have some strawberries next to me looking juicy good.  I don't think I'll undereat today. :)

@Snow - Thank you love.  That makes me feel really good.  Let's get back up and keep running!

@tralapouse - Thanks for your love.  Sticking, apply and experiencing,  my love.  It is all worth it.  :)

@Sean - Hey There Big Sexy Rich!  Thanks for sharing the hope!  No need to beat yourself up for a natural function of the body that is built to keep us healthy.  Here's to the NewComers!

Isn't it great that binges now consist of rice and vegetables, instead of all the junk we used to eat before!!  But yes, I tend to binge in the evenings after a day of not eating enough at breakfast and lunch.  Lesson learned and moving on!

Way ta' keep positive!  :)  I like your way of looking at things.  Tomorrow seems like a good day!

@Mera, Oh yes! I plan for a nice exercise session.  I'm going to power walk to the bank which is about a mile from here.  I'm going to come back to a Body Flex Full Session and Maybe a bit of yoga.  Mmmmm... this is going to be a good day.  It is a good day already!

@Derek, Thank you!  Today is a new day!

@Helen, yes binging is natural.  The longer I'm on the diet, I'll begin to make new choices.  Binging will become healthier and healthier.  Before you know it, I'll be cherry binging.  Yay!

@Brendon, Thank you!  And you called me Phenom.  I love it!

@Spring Girl, It is a new day!  Oh, now meat, you do not have to worry about.  I only went cooked vegan.  No meat baby!  I have enough stuff around not to have ate that stuff.  I was just making choices that I was used to.  I wanted to give in to it, so I wouldn't end up at Mc Donald's today while I was out. (Ewwwww!)

@Nadia - Oooo, now how do you make that Zuchini Pasta?  How do I spirialize it?  What do I use?

@James - Gotta have a rebound plan!  I have ripes and unripes and I'm going to the store to get a bit of both again today.  :)  I do love the bananas!

Comment by Jessie James on February 4, 2012 at 11:35pm

Nice post! And great rebound plan! My banana's are ripe today and it's going to be a great fruity day for me as well, no stumbles :)

I have 2 words for you - Zuchini Pasta.  That's my go to savoury dish.  I looooove it!!!  The batch I make up has 700 calories.  I spiralize or peel lots of zuchini - at least 1kg (there's a pic in my photos of this dish) add the kernals from 2 cobs of sweetcorn and then blend up about 500g or so of tomatoes, a capsicum and a handful of medjool dates.  Mmmmmm so delish.  Plus there are just so many different variations of zuchini pasta to try.  Have fun experimenting :)
