I'm having a weak day today. I am tired, kinda cranky, and VERY GLAD it's Friday. It has been a very stressful week for my husband and I, and I'm looking forward to a few days of recuperation. I am also starting to get sick, I woke up this morning with a horrible sore throat and I can feel a chest cold coming on, so I loaded up on the vitamin C this morning and can't wait to go home and just lie down.
Yesterday I made some diet soda cupcakes, and I brought them to school today to share so that people could see that healthy foods can be good too (and easy to make!!). When I got here, there were donuts and bagels and juice and coffee in the lounge, which I totally forgot about, but I didn't indulge. It's just not worth it.
Yes its a weak day and that did make me feel better, but eating the wrong foods isn't my problem today. It's eating TOO MUCH of the right foods. The exact OPPOSITE problem of what I was dealing with before starting this thing. Before, I didn't eat very much, but I was eating the wrong foods. Foods laced with carbs and fat and empty calories. Now, I'm eating the right foods, but I'm eating so much of them. And today it has taken all of my strength not to keep eating after I'm done being hungry just because I AM tired and sick and wanting to go home.
It's 1:30pm and I've already eaten almost 900 calories today. THATS INSANE. It didn't help that before I even exercised I found myself eating one of those cupcakes, albeit no whipped cream on top, but STILL. I decided to even it out by cutting my normal breakfast in half, and that helped a bit. But seriously. Today needs to be over so I can go home, relax, and STOP BINGING.
No one likes a crabby teacher. And thats what I am. Crabby.
