I know how difficult binging can be and how difficult it is to stop. I did some research and found 10 ways to help with binging; so here they are. I hope this helps you! 
Stress managementSo as you know stress is one of the many reasons why people binge, therefore being really important that you manage your stress. It is most important that you find an alternative way of handling your stress and overwhelming feelings without using food. These may include exercising, meditating, using sensory relaxation strategies, and practicing simple breathing exercises.
Try and eat 3 meals a day with snacks!Eating breakfast is so important because it helps jump start your metabolism in the morning. Try and follow breakfast with a balanced lunch and dinner, including healthy snacks in between the meals. Try to stick to scheduled mealtimes because skipping meals can often lead to binge eating later in the day.
Avoid temptationAs difficult as it may be try and avoid the temptation. I find a good way to do this is by fixing your source of foods. You’re much more likely to overeat if you have junk food, desserts, and unhealthy snacks in the house. Remove the temptation by clearing your fridge and cupboards of your favorite binge foods.
Don’t diet Deprivation and hunger from strict dieting can trigger food cravings and the urge to eat excessively. Try and focus on eating in moderation. 80% goods and 20% not so good. Sometimes it is better for one to go 100% healthy until they feel confident enough in themselves to allow the junk food. For others they may need to slowly cut out the junk food. However this is not always the case so try and find something that works for you. Also find nutritious foods that you enjoy and eat only until you feel content, not uncomfortably stuffed. Don’t make yourself eat stuff that you don’t like. Enjoying the healthy foods are really important too.
ExerciseNot only will exercise help you get fitter in a healthy way, but it also lifts depression, improves overall health, and reduces stress. The natural mood-boosting effects of exercise can help put a stop to emotional eating.
Fight boredomInstead of snacking when you’re bored, distract yourself. Take a walk, call a friend, read, or take up a hobby such as painting or gardening. It is really great to get out of the house, especially on nice days. Getting in the sun and breathing that fresh air is fantastic for lifting moods and relieving stress and also may help prevent binging.
Get enough sleepIf you’re tired, you may want to keep eating in order to boost your energy. Instead of doing this maybe light some candles, play some music or have a bath and try and relax your mind and body. You should also instead maybe take a nap or try and go to bed earlier.
Listen to your bodyTry and learn the difference between physical and emotional hunger. If you ate recently and don’t have a rumbling tummy, you’re probably are not actually hungry. Give the craving, time to pass. This also includes eating and drinking at appropriate times. Sometimes thirst can act as hunger, so try and drink lots of water. Drinking water also helps fill you up preventing the hunger for foods, eating when bored and hopefully binging. 
Keep a food diaryI find these sometimes are difficult to remain committed too, however some people are really good at doing this. Try and write down what you eat, when, how much, and how you’re feeling when you eat. You may see patterns emerge that reveal the connection between your moods and binge eating. Writing your emotions about what you feel when you eat may also act as a form of releasing and may actually help you reduce your stress, overall helping with emotional eating. 
Get supportThis is so important. You’re more likely to succumb to binge eating triggers if you lack a solid support network. Talking helps, even if it’s not with a professional. Lean on family and friends, join a support group, and if possible consult a therapist or you know, you have an entire tumblr/fitblr community that are all willing to help you and will try their very best. I hope I have managed to help in some way but if I haven’t please don’t be discouraged and talk to others because they may know just exactly what to tell you or their advice may apply to you better.

Working out your inner thighs is vital in ensuring that your legs are in good overall condition. The inner thighs are the most neglected part of the legs, and many people fail to place sufficient importance on working out the inner thighs. There are many reasons that both men and women should spend time exercising their inner thighs:
Reducing the amount of excess flab or fat on the inner thigh can help make clothes fit better, reduce the chance of jock or heat rashes, and can help improve one’s overall appearance.
Strengthening the muscles of the inner thigh gives one more power to lift items with their legs, more power when kicking or running, and more strength in the legs overall.
Enhancing the flexibility of the inner thigh muscles helps to reduce the chance of injury, makes life easier, and can even enhance one’s lovemaking and sexual potency.
These are just a few of the simpler benefits of working out the inner thigh muscles, and it is vital that extra attention is paid to strengthening the inner thighs.
One of the best ways to work out the inner thigh muscles is by doing leg lifts. These leg lifts are exercises that use the weight of one’s legs to do the workout, and they are easy to do and require little in the way of coordination. Anyone can do leg lifts as an inner thigh workout, and the leg lifts can be done in any place where there is sufficient space.

Bless this post. Finally reasons to work the inner thigh OTHER than a thigh gap. 

^ Agreed, this is the truth for athletes, not just that “thigh gap”

Workout Wednesday - Toning! 

Every Wednesday we will post a new set of exercises for you all to complete (: This week we did toning (without weights)! You can choose a combination (or follow our suggestions) for the week! Really push yourself to improve as the week goes on and give it your all :D

So for this week we suggest you do :

  1. Beginners 10 reps or 20 seconds for each exercise
  2. Regular: 20 reps or 30 seconds for each exercise
  3. Advanced: 30 reps or 45 second for each exercise

We recommend repeating each workout for 3 sets! Our guided plan would be to alternate between a day of legs & butt exercises and a day of arms, back, and abs exercises.

**Choose whichever day(s) you need as a rest day(s) ! 

We did not provide examples of each workout because if we did this post would be way too long! Instead we have provided this site which has many workout examples and you can always google for an example! If there are questions about a certain exercise feel free to message us!

*Also, as a bonus if you have a pull up bar they provide a great workout for your back & arms so feel free to add that into your routine!

*And for help mastering push ups you can check out Fitannes post here!

If you have any questions please let either one of us know! We would love to see/hear how your workouts are going so please post and tag hardworktoethefinishline! Or you can tag our blog names separately (:
