Ok so week 7... mmm¸
It started good. After the weight in on the 21st I had a good tuesday and a good wednesday. As discussed in my previous blog, I decided to offer a puppy to my husband in an attempt to lift his spirit. Well it did work! we went and chose the little one. We will be able to get her on August 19th. She is too young for now. Since I told him that I was to give him a puppy, he has been feeling a lot better. He is sleeping better and we can actually spend some time together. One thing done...
So we went to St-Hyacinthe thursday evening to see the puppies. about 1 hour drive from Montreal. We got there a bit early so we went for a coffee at Tim's and had the longest conversation we've had since his mom died. That felt great. When we got there, there was 2 female puppies. We chose the one who kept coming to us. then gave the deposit, talked with the owner and then left.
Since we have not really spent time together in a while, we went to dinner at an all you can eat Sushi place we like. I was stunned to see how little I was able to eat compared to what I usually have. it was still too much for the diet, but a least I was able to notice some improvements in my relation with food. Or so I thought...
Over the weekend, I did too much as I often do. I didn't stop all weekend not even to prepare for my finals. I did some cleaning, dishes, laundry, mowed the lawn, trimmed the hedges, cut in pieces the wood from the old fence so I would be able to put it in the garbage can. I also prepared some food for my husband and the kids. 2 different chicken recipes, some rice, potatoes and vegetables and a spaghetti sauce. When I was finally done with everything, I was soo tired I had a little binging episode... mmm. I was not really happy about that. I have to make sure I don't overdo and that I go to bed when I am tired.
So when I got to the doctor's office this Monday, I was expecting a gain. Having a binging episode the day before weight-in I was sure of it. To my surprise, I was down to 229 (0.6 pounds less than the previous week) I was extatic!
I think I have found the reason behind my over doing it. It is as if I am affraid of having some down time. If I have nothing to do I may start thinking. I am not sure I am ready to go there.
In the mean time, yesterday was my last class. I have to prepare for the final exam that is set for Saturday morning. I have tonight and tomorrow night to make sure I am ready. After the exam, I intend to start running again. My feet are not hurting as much now so I should be able to do it.
till next time!
