School Begins

Monday, August 19, 2013

So today was the first day of professional development and it was exhausting! Having the summer off, besides working at camp, my brain is just mush I guess. They provided breakfast and lunch today and I had to navigate away from croissants, muffins, soda, pizza, fried chicken, and french fries, and find my way to eggs, veges, and hamburg. I knew to expect this. Originally, I wanted to do some intermittent fasting for breakfast and lunch and have a big dinner, but I found that my appetite was really strong in that social atmosphere.

This weekend I ate based on the Carbohydrate Addict's Diet, which allows that you have a reward meal. On Saturday, I ate a slice of my anniversary cheesecake, and Sunday, I went to an Italian feast festival and has a cannoli and a chocolate dipped brownie. CAD allows you to eat something sweet, but suggests that you eat a third veges, a third meat, and a third carbs. You also must eat your "reward meal" within an hour time limit.

I am glad to find something like that because although I do not plan on being on that particular diet every day, I do want to do it on holidays and other events at which I might want to "reward" myself. I think psychologically, it'll help me stay on track much better because I won't consider it flat out cheating nor failing.

Anyway, today, I ate according to plan in the midst of crazy unhealthy food. Tomorrow, I plan to do the same and if temptation becomes too strong, I can simply turn that particular meal into a reward meal in the process I stated above. My grandmother lost 30 pounds on that diet years ago.

I only had time to go to the gym for about 45 minutes today between jobs. I am about to pass out and try to wake up early enough to go in the morning. I may sleep in though because I didn't get much sleep the past two nights and I desperately need some.
