Hope everyone had a great start to their week! I had a wonderful Easter and enjoyed relaxing with my family this weekend!
I had my last classes tonight and now it is time to get my study on for finals! Unfortunately there hasn’t been a lot of studying going on… just a lot of chocolate eating. This Easter solidified the fact that I do indeed have food “issues” on holidays, special events, and parties. There is something about the abundance of delicious food and naughty candy treats that just makes my “will power” go right out the window. I end up feeling guilty and upset with myself …and then eat more! It’s a vicious circle. Kind of like my caffeine issues: when the initial caffeine wears off I want more caffeine, sugar, or lots of carbs! I think it is one of those things I am just going to have to work through and I’ll have plenty opportunities to do so since I am going to have an unpredictable schedule all this summer. I read somewhere, unfortunately cannot remember where, that you should think about your diet like a gps route. When you
eat too many mini twix from your Easter basket make a wrong turn your gps wouldn’t just tell you to keep eating everything in sight going in the wrong in the wrong direction. It would correct your mistake, turn you around, and put you back on the correct route! I’ll try to keep that in mind in the future…
Here’s some pictures of my Easter goodies so you can see how I got off my ‘route’
As you can see there was way to much tempting food lurking around! Today I was a big girl and stepped on the scale for the first time in a while, since it was against my positivity rules. I think I handled it pretty well! I didn’t let it effect me too much and low and behold I didn’t gain weight just because I wasn’t getting on the scale every since day. I’m confident that I can plan on hopping on the scale every few weeks and not dread what it will say!
Anyway…I’m sleepy! Time for bed!
