Surviving Easter in Relapse

So Easter is the time of chocolate eggs and bunnies right?… nope.

Thankfully my family is pretty much ignorant of Easter festivities, so I’m saved from the bombardment of chocolate that is typical of the holiday. In fact the only chocolate I have is a small Lindt bunny and a bag of Dairy Milk mini eggs from church, small things I can split out over many days rather than one binge. 

Easter happens to fall on a day I normally spend at the gym, which was unfortunately closed due to the holiday. So my weekly routine was slightly upset, but the added bank holiday off work means I can make up for it today. 

Otherwise I’ve managed okay this weekend. Thanks to an early period and chronic sleep deprivation, I was more inclined to nap right through. As is, I allowed myself to celebrate Easter and enjoy a bit of chocolate without going over the edge. Likewise I didn’t push too much the other way in not allowing myself any extra calories at all. I’m averaging out at 800-1000 per day for this week (yes that’s way lower than recommended, hence me not recommending it – I happen to have IBS which means I struggle to digest a lot of food so my calories are permanently lower than average even without an eating disorder to contend with).

That’s how I survived the holiday, now I just need to catch up on a pile of work before I go back on Wednesday.
