Good morning! I hope you are all having a good day so far – today is Wednesday which only means we are celebrating a new round of What I ate Wednesday.

Comparison – Judgement – Restriction – Guilt
—-What WIAW is about—-
Celebrating one of the glorious things we all have in common: We all eat!
I have one challenge throughout my food days and that is our office. I love my office, it is beautiful and bright, I have a great space for me to work and I am thrilled by my colleagues who are great guys and we have so much fun at work. Like in many other offices there are always treats and sweets, which isn’t the easiest thing for me. I am still not a ‘normal’ eating behavior person and things that are part of binges, are triggers for me. So I may have days, I starve myself away from sweets just to be ‘safe’. I may have days when I can indulge a bit and not feeling guilty and all is well. I may have days when I indulge and feel guilty and that’s it and that’s ok too, even though it’s not easy. I may have days when I  take 2-3 sweets, feel SO guilty that I fall into the trap and start a binge. So yesterday, it was a day with a few choco eggs, which made me feel really guilty. But I did not binge. So far, so good!!
So let’s see what the food was yesterday!!
I prepped Perfect Fit Protein Pancakes the night before and was so ready for them after my abwork and Yoga session early morning.
IMG_3292I was a bit sad though since I had no topping around. Aren’t pancakes sad things without toppings??
So during late morning I strolled around the eggs several times and grabbed some here and there. Guilty Eating. No good. Ok, the chocolate was still delicious! 🙂

Before Lunch I went to beast around in the gym and did one of my heavy weightlifting session and added some new exciting exercises I learned from Tim in Berlin. 
Coming back to the office, the sun was out and it got even warm! I took the chair and joined my colleagues in our tiny garden in the backyard. It totally felt like spring!! I am sorry for the messy and not so nice pics. I mixed roasted chickenbreast, 1/2 small sweet potato, and green veggies all cooked in a little coconut milk together with two hardboiled eggwhites.

I managed to stay away from the chocolate in the afternoon and when hunger came up again, I grabbed some meat….

I cycled home after work, finished some errands and then sat down for dinner. I had more green veggies ready and a frittata and decided to spice up the veggies and mash them and toss them together with the chopped frittata in Nori Sheets. It was gooooood!!!

Do you feel guilty when you overindulge? 
Still having Easter Goodies around?

  1. So clever to add them to a nori sheet… very impressive!

  2. Greta says:

    OMG! I can so relate to this! The chocolate overindulgence – that happened to me!!! I felt so bad! As you’ve said – cold not put down the damn candy! 😀
    I’m happy you’ve learning to deal with those things slowing and with patience.
    Awesome day of eats! Chopped frittata in Nori Sheets – oolala! Yum! 😀

    • Yeah, I learn VERY slowly…..that’s maybe the problem. I get so angry when I just keep on eating the stuff since I know I can not yet enjoy so much without guilt. But what did we say? Babysteps? uuuuugh…..Happy Wednesday love!!

  3. I think your pancakes look pretty tasty, with or without toppings! Happy WIAW!

  4. You’ve been making so much progress Lucie – you should be super proud of yourself 🙂 I still have some Easter treats lying around, and while guilt definitely tries to sneak in and ruin my enjoyment of them, I’d like to think that I’ve gotten a lot better at catching it and nipping it in the butt before it gets too bad. After all, everyone needs some chocolate in their life.

    • Thanks so much girl. I know that I came far and I wouldn’t mind some chocolate, but currently just have a hard time when I start eating it. It gets out of control…and that’s no enjoyment anymore. But I know that guilt is not the solution and it’s only been yesterday, so not too much to worry about 🙂

    Looks great girl! All the chocolate lying around after Easter is dangerous! I can’t keep mine in the house or it would be all gone. I definitely do allow a splurge though around the holidays! It’s not worth going crazy trying to eat perfectly!

  6. Congrats on not bingeing! That can be such a tough mental challenge.

    I definitely feel guilty when I over-indulge :(. It is a struggle that I am currently working to improve on. It is just so darn difficult!!

  7. I like topping my pancakes with peanut butter, hehe 🙂

    I actually didn’t go too crazy on easter… but I ate a lot the rest of the weekend! haha

  8. I’m sorry that you still deal with guilt around chocolate and sweets, but I know you’ve made a lot of progress and will continue to do so! It still sneaks in for me once in a while too, but I’m pretty good about ignoring it and continuing to enjoy the deliciousness that is chocolate 😀

  9. Sorry you experienced food-induced guilt after eating the chocolates yesterday :(. But give yourself a pat on the back for not bingeing – that’s a huge step!
    I can’t deny I’m still feeling guilty about food, too – especially sweets but even almond/nut butter when I’m eating too much of it. What I’m finding helpful at times: to remind myself that due to my ED I’m much more easily thinking I “overdid” it when I actually just ate what other people would consider a normal amount of sweets.
    Hope you’re having a great and sunny Wednesday!

    • Awr, thank you for that sweet comment! I am sorry you go through this too, still I am glad I am not the only one! It takes so much time to overcome all these habits, right!

  10. Lisa says:

    well over here we didn’t have Easter goodies to start with, so none left haha.
    It doesn’t look to me like you overindulged, I think you’ve been making really awesome strides!!
    It’s great that you didn’t end up bingeing! One step at a time! And you’re doing great.
    However, I know for everyone it looks different. I think it’s human nature to overindulge some of the time, but life has a way of evening itself out after a while.

    • Thank you Lisa!! Your comment means a lot. It’s just not fun if the indulgement is not an enjoyment anymore cause guilt takes over. But as you say – one step at a time!

  11. kepotts says:

    I can relate 100% Lucie! I over-indulged a ton over Easter & felt immense guilt. I think being aware of it is a huge step in the right direction. Knowing I’ll feel better mentally & physically if I have some treats I really enjoy rather than stuffing massive piles of chocolate in my mouth helps me to avoid some guilt. Looks like you’re having some gorgeous weather there!

    • Oh thank you Katie!! It makes me feel so much better that I am not alone with this feeling! I know it’s also hard for you but it’s just a good feeling that we can relate and go through this together. This massive guilt sometimes help me to really stop because I get so fed up with it!
      Yes, currently the weather is nice after snow and rain!

  12. Lift, Sleep, Eat says:

    congrats on not binging but still enjoying a few chocolate treats..this has been the first easter in a while when i havent over indulged so im proud of myself haha!
    those nori wraps look delicious; im addicted to nori at the minute i swear i could just eat a pack of the sheets by themselves.

  13. I’ve never had nori sheets…I need to give them a try!

  14. Ever since I made my sushi rolls the other day, I’ve been wanting to stuff EVERYTHING in a nori sheet! haha! What’s the green stuff you have in yours? Is it just green veggies and scrambled egg? Looks kinda saucy…and delicious! How nice that you got to enjoy lunch outside! Eating in the sunshine is always a great thing! Aww, but too bad on the topping-less pancakes…just not the same, I know!

    I am RIGHT there with ya on the food guilt/restrict/indulge/binge thing…still trying to figure out how to balance my behavior with my “dangerous foods” since I’ve started with intuitive eating…I was doing really well until last night when I had a little slip…let’s just say I’m definitely a work in progress! :-/

    • It’s really just steamed broccoli and zucchini and then I spiced them up, added a little bit of coconut milk and mashed it. So easy and really good!!
      Oh girl, I am SO proud of you that you are going for this intuitiv eating!! I know it is hard but I also know that you are making progress and you’re so brave!

  15. Yum! Tasty eats going on up in herrrr!

    Pancakes are good without the toppings too 🙂

    I used to overindulge ALLLLLLLL the time before I got into health and fitness. That’ all I knew and practised lol

  16. Yum eggs + sweet potato needs to make its way onto my plate! I was good during easter just had a handful of champagne instead 😉 Thank you for sharing Lucie, you inspire all of us! Love + Shine CourtStar
