Day 22-31: Trick, Treat, or Treadmill

31 Days to Stop Binge-Eating

It’s been 31 days of this writing challenge which is crazy. I wasn’t sure if I would write every day…and I didn’t…but I think that’s okay. I didn’t want this to become a play-by-play food log. However, the accountability of the challenge did help. #1 Gym membership. I LOVE working out with my husband, but consistency […]

Days 16-21: Self-Consciousness & Childhood Routines

31 Days to Stop Binge-Eating, #write31days

Confession: I despise how I look. Sometimes I’ll take a super great selfie and I know it looks like the body attached to the face is a size six…at the max…which is a total falsehood. Being extremely self-conscious of my weight means I don’t want to go to the doctor or even use a free […]

Days 7 – 15: Off the Wagon

Bethany Jett, #Write31Days

I’m lame. I really thought I’d blog each day but alas. Here we are at Day 15. I’ve totally binged. On the way to speak at a fundraiser for the HOPE Resource Center, I enjoyed more than my share of snack-age. Staples for the road trip: caramel cremes, honey bbq Fritos, and a sugar-free Monster […]

Day 6: Eating before Public Speaking

31 Days to Stop Binge-Eating

stop binge-eating,

Tonight I’m speaking a pregnancy crisis center fundraiser and I am beyond jazzed. But with public speaking comes nervous jitters and delicate tummies. I definitely won’t binge-eating tonight, unless it’s after the fundraiser. Bring it on. Tips for Eating Before Public Speaking To prepare for tonight’s talk, I ate a balanced breakfast of cheerios and […]

Day 5: Eating on an Outing

31 Days to Stop Binge-Eating, stop binge-eating

We went to the zoo yesterday and it was awesome-sauce. Thankfully the park wasn’t crowded enough to have all of the vendors selling their delicious wares and I was able to easily bypass the Dip-n-Dots. Because, well, they weren’t being sold. Eating on an outing is difficult…I would have inhaled those lovely round dry-iced cream […]

Day 4: No Midnight Snack

31 Days to Stop Binge-Eating

No Midnight Snack,

It’s Day 4 of the #Writer31Days challenge. Technically, it’s almost midnight on Day 3, but I write these the evening before. This is the problem: I’m tired (exhausted, really) and I’m willing myself not to go get a snack. If I wasn’t trying to be better about my eating habits, I’d go grab something. To be […]

Day 3: Road Trip Temptations

31 Days to Stop Binge-Eating

Road Trip

It’s Day 3 of the #Write31Days Challenge. I wasn’t expecting to feel accountable about binge-eating but I was thinking about what I had to write while I was reaching for the snack bag. Big win – I did not eat the entire bag of caramel cremes, my current candy nemesis. Planning  I spent ten hours in […]

close the green ring,

It’s Day 2 of the #Write31Days Challenge. My topic: 31 Days to Stop Binge-Eating. In case you missed it, check out yesterday’s post here. I promised that I would share about how I got my husband to gift me a gym membership, so here we go. It Started With a FitBit. The majority of my work […]
