Goals of the Week 49

Last week my b/p goal was to go 3 days in a row eating normally. I almost made it. I was halfway through the third day in a row and there was fudge. I ate an entire bar before I could even blink. On the bright side, I ate normally 4 days overall this week. Somehow I didn't lose any weight from that, but oh well.
My goal is the same. Eat normally 3 days in a row. I can do it, even with July 4th coming. 

My other goal was to keep a mistake log. I did that, and it worked great. Writing out my mistakes and their consequences made me feel more at ease because in reality, the consequences weren't too bad. 
This week my goal is to recognize when Ed is telling me to do things. 
I read this book called Life Without Ed by Jenni Schaefer and she made a really good case for calling your ED Ed and separating him from yourself. This can help defeat him, because you're fighting against someone else, not yourself. 
I didn't really like the idea of giving a disease a name, but this book changed my mind. So I'm going to give it a try. 

What are your goals? 


  1. On the part where women would be afraid of being women, I'm not sure about that, but I've definitely heard of cases where girls don't want to grow up, so they strive to have that childish frame. My goals are to eat veggies, hydrate hydrate hydrate, and run 6.2 miles on Thursday! The big day is a few days away, I'm terrified.

  2. almost making it is still close enough to me. maybe next week you'll make it? :)
    oh! the 4th of July. I forgot that was a holiday to some people sometimes :P
    yes! it's strange how that is sometimes. when you realise the consequences isn't as bad as your mind makes them out.
    oh! i do this all the time when i talk to this girl. i just keep on saying "ED me is just like" it does help things become a lot clearer i'd say.

  3. Its nice when you can look back at a mistake that mortified you and realise it wasn't that big of a deal. I am a worrier so I think that would be a neat project for myself. I set a goal of living activly and actually live my life. To stop treading water.
