This had been an interesting busy week.
To make sure I will be on time for all the homework I have left to do. I have decided to stay at work 1-2 hours every night to do some. the environment in my office is a lot better to work than home. Mostly because there are less distractions. I did move ahead on my work, but arrived home way too famished. The result, I ate too much, way too much almost every night.
So the plan this week will be to bring not only my lunch and 2 snacks with me, but also dinner. That way when I get home I won't have to eat.
On top of it, I was not happy with myself every time I overate for dinner so, I punished myself with a snack after... Talk about dumb. I am beginning to think that bad carbs make me bad! lol. I had noticed I tend to go over when I have things like sugar, white bread, potatoes. I guess fast sugars do make me hungry. I had read it, but didn't quite believe it. fast sugar make you blood sugar rise fast, your body sends tons of insulin to compensate then you have a major sugar crash and feel hungry...
As a test, this week, I will try to limit the fast sugars to once a day... one slice of bread, 1 potato or 1 little piece of chocolate, ice cream, Nutella or any other sugary treats. Those are what I tend to go for when I am tired. So I will have to make sure I have a ton of veggies to nibble on all day if I feel tired.
I do not want to gain again this week. Even if today is Easter and I have 2 family meals to attend to.
The week was not a total loss, I did have 2 good things... I submitted 1 paper yesterday and had a call to tell me my orthotics are ready so I have an appointment this week to pick them up.
I also have an appointment with the doctors at the breast clinic I know those usually make me nervous so I have to stay alert and not turn to food. with the appointment to the dentist, this will not be a long work week!
Friday my daughter and I had a mother-daughter day. we went downtown Montreal to shop for some shoes then we went to the new planetarium for the 2 shows and to the botanical garden for the butterflies go free event. We had wanted to go see the Biodome again, but didn't have the time. We have gone a few times but it is always fun to go.
if you ever come to Montreal, the Olympic stadium is a nice place to go. you have the planetarium, insectarium, biodome, botanical garden and you can go up the elevator of the stadium mast.
have a great week!
