Goals of The Week 48

Last week my goal was 5 days without binging. 
HA. HA. HA. I made it two days, I think. I put this down to my horrible motivation and the abundance of evil food around the house. My sister's birthday party was a few days ago, so I was charged with making and decorating the cake. I did pretty well at not binging through that, and I had fun, but when the time came to actually eat the thing I went crazy. My b/p goal for this week is to not binge for three days in a row. I am also going to try to keep a food log every single day this week, no matter whether I binge or not. It's hard on days I work since I get up so early and don't have access to a computer during the day, but I'll make it happen. Maybe I'll write it on a piece of paper and then put it into caloriecount at the end of the day. 

My non b/p goal was to make goals by 10 PM. That didn't happen, but I did make more goals than usual. I don't know what's happened to me this summer. I used to make my goals without fail every night before I went to bed. Now I just watch TV until 1 AM or talk to my boyfriend and then go straight to sleep without a plan. My goal will be to keep a mistake log this week. Write down all the mistakes I feel I make and then write out the worst possible consequences for those mistakes. This might help me feel better about making them. 

What are your goals? 

PS. I guess my other goal is to tell my friend what's going on. He's coming over today and my plan is to sit down with him and explain what's happening before we go to group. I think I can do it, but I don't know. I've chickened out many times before. I'll let you know how it goes! Thanks for all the advice it really made me change my mind about how I wanted to go about things. 

PPS Here's the cake I made for my sister. She loved it, I thought it looked messy. 


  1. fuck the internet that took away my precious comment. in summary of what i said: i'm astounded by your realistic goals. the cake looks yummy let me have all of it. i hope this week is better for you and i'm so amazed at how you can pick yourself up after all that you've been through.
    also, weight-related goal is to maintain. not weight related goal is to follow sleep schedule to minimise the trigger part of my depression. <3
    i love you Emilyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy you're amazing

  2. Your cake is fine, I bet it tasted good :) I think my weekly goal should be to make, food related is to go grocery shopping and making sure I'm eating enough. I'm down to eating twice a day, I need to be fueling more. Also, go running everyday, as there are only 10 days until my 10k. Non-food/wxercise goals: clean up my space, write more, work on internship assignment. I really hope telling your friend works out. This guy I'm into, well, if it's going to work than he has to know, so let me know how it goes hon. <3

  3. The cake looks delish, and I'm glad your sister loved it :)
    My goals are to eat 5 meals a day (I think I did this 3 or 4/7 days last week), and to do some work sewing my coat each day. I basically just want to have some sort of routine and distraction.
    Good luck with talking to your friend today. I really hope he responds well. Let us know how it goes xx

  4. I love your cake. Adorable. :D Don't worry, goals aren't something that you manage to attain every single day. It's the steps you take.
    My goal is to lose a little and not eat so many sweets this week.


Thanks for commenting! I appreciate it :)
