Goals of the Week 2

Last week my goal was completely ridiculous. I don't even want to discuss it, that's how badly I did with it. 
This week my goal is to not purge at least until I get to acapella group. That means I'll have a two week no purge cycle before singing with the group. And my voice will sound amazing. 

How did you do with your goals? What are your new goals of the week?


  1. Wishing you all the best with your goal. I'll be doing it with you in spirit because you gave me such an amazing idea to do it too. When I don't eat or if I purge too much, my voice becomes hoarse and I get SO dizzy and faint and can't get enough breath to hold long notes. Have you ever had autophony? I get that too when I restrict too much and it's a complete nightmare trying to sing. GOOD LUCK AGAIN! X

  2. I think that's a really great goal. Good luck!
    My goal was to do a little sewing or tapestry each day... I did some most days. This week I want to finish sewing the skirts I'm working on, and maybe try to plan a day trip for next week (I keep putting it off, now it's been 3 months since I went out except for appointments).

    Take care <3 xx

  3. I didn't meet my goals. I think sometimes when I define something as a goal it triggers the rebellious side of me that refuses to do anything productive! xx

  4. I met my goals of working out at least 3 times last week, although 1 workout was 80 minutes of hot yoga, but I still count it as a workout although some people wouldn't.

    I think my new goal should be something not food related, like I need to walk my dogs more, so I think my goal should be to walk them every day this week, even if it's only for 10 minutes, just so they can get outside and enjoy some exercise. : )

    Good luck with not purging, I know the hardest part is the eating thing and then wanting to get rid of it, but, try to eat manageable amounts to where you don't feel so full and you don't have the desire to purge so badly afterwards.
    I've realized after being bulimic for years that I get in a frenzy of eating & don't pay attention, and my biggest part of recovery has been to portion a normal amount on a plate, (what a normal person would eat for dinner or whatever) eat it, and then make myself wait at least 10 minutes, or drink some water, and really think about, "am i hungry" "Do i need more?" if so I'll get some, but if I truly think about it and realize I just want to binge badly then I'll just make myself wait a bit longer, and sometimes the urge will go away when my brain tells my body you've had enough food, since it takes 20 minutes for your brain to register anything has been put in your body, and often times I could binge A LOT in 20 minutes. That is why I make myself wait.
    It's helped me a lot, but it did take me a long time to realize that's what's helped, and actually follow through with having that strength.

    Maybe you should try waiting for a little while when you're in a binge? Consciously think about what you're eating so you don't feel the need to purge.

    Hope you do well with this goal, it's a great goal to set for yourself.
