week 16

Sunday, April 20, 2014

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! emoticon

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!

    I have never been across to Canada but wish one day to do the trans canadian highway from St Johns to Vancouver. I know it would take in two particular towns I would love to visit, Montreal and Toronto.

    I can only hope the olympic park in London remains as good as it is at the moment and we keep it all in the way they seem to have done there.

    Going to Montreal is always fun. I love going to the Biodome. The penguins are so cute. I also enjoy shopping on St. Catherine Street and walking around old Montreal.

    My doctor was a little worried about my blood pressure during my last few visits. Last week he sent me for an ECG. I have to go see him this week for the results. I hope he doesn't want to increase my dosage of blood pressure meds. I hate having to take drugs.

    Good luck at the dentist's office. I have to go see mine next week.

    It seems that as soon as we change our routine a little bit we pay consequences!! But we live and learn and make appropriate changes to our patterns. I know you'll be fine, because you've done it before!!

    You know I want to visit the Olympic Stadium and all it has to offer! If I could have come up last November that was going to be one of my definite destinations.

    I would love to come to Montreal someday and will be sure to check with you on all that I should try to see when there. Your Mother and daughter day sounded perfectly grand and I am so glad you got to enjoy it together.

    Oh how your words rang true for me, too, "bad carbs make me bad!" I betcha that is true for almost everyone here ... I mean, anyone who takes time to think about it. The complex carbs, the good carbs, actually fuel our bodies,but those dang bad carbs - the ones that taste so heavenly - trick us, with those sudden bursts of energy, into thinking we did OK ....only to soon find ourselves turning into the demons that they cause us to become. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Well, here's to tomorrow. I am with you in trying to keep myself away from the demon carbs and replacing them instead with real fuel.

    Happy Easter! emoticon

    It sound like you have joined the human race. this happen to everyone at sometime.

    Kick it out the door and move on as it is all in the mind.

    Good luck and Happy Easter (what's left of it)
