Hi to any new followers! I'm happy to check out your blogs but I'm much more likely to do it if you leave a comment, because otherwise I forget or get distracted. So please, if you read this and I haven't looked at your blog, don't be offended, it's not because I don't want to!
Last week my goal was to eat normally 3 days in a row. And I finally did it! I was so proud once that third day rolled around. I had slip-ups towards the end of the week, but I still managed to eat normally 4/7 days.
My goal for this week is to eat normally 4 days in a row. I know I can do it. I have the right kind of motivation and not so many cravings (since yesterday I ate an entire box of swiss rolls... I think that satisfied it). Today is day 1.
I had the goal to be more aware of when Ed was telling me to do things. And I definitely accomplished that. I wrote down a few conversations between us to help separate him from me. I obeyed him and listened, but I did argue back. It was very hard to think of Ed whenever I was in the middle of a binge or purge though. Right then it was all "I, me, Emily" even though it was Ed that was making me do it.
My non b/p goal for this week is to each day right after breakfast, write out the answers to these questions:
1. What does Ed want me to do today?
2. What do I need to do to be in recovery today?
Again, the idea comes from Life Without Ed (the book by Jenni Schaefer), but I think it's a really good one and it can help me stay on track.
What are your goals?
