Today was a sleep in and don’t go to school kind of day. Not the best for a Monday but the extra few hours of sleep felt divine. I woke up this morning and was starved so I immediately made some turkey bacon and a scrambled egg. This meal was a little lack lustre. Is turkey bacon really that much better for you then real bacon? The ingredient list is long, the sodium is really high and it is just not satisfying. I think I am going to go back to keeping real bacon on the menu but only as a once in a while type food.
One of the benefits of skipping class is staying home and doing school work in your pyjamas. Nothing better than a big cup of coffee and being curled up on the couch with my laptop. It is pretty much right back into study mode as I have another midterm at the end of the next week and a paper due shortly after that. Summer can not happen soon enough!
This weekend was pretty low key. In my psych class we have a certain amount of research participation that we have to do, so Saturday morning was dedicated to a few hours of that. It was quite a simple project but a bit on the tedious side. As a benefit I got paid $4 to be there so it wasn’t all bad.
The best part of the weekend was a surprise tweet from Eric!
We email back and forth but any extra chat time is always welcome. He is still gone for another few weeks! Sunday was an early lunch with an old friend and then the best nap I have ever had. It was hard trying to get out of bed and be productive after that nap.
Today is all about one choice at a time. Healthy eating is not natural for me yet so I am finding I really have to be proactive and make every decision count. It pretty much comes down to not allowing myself to make excuses. My goal this week is to journal all my meals and how my emotional state is when I eat something. All to often I eat because I am bored, tired, sad etc. I want to start being more mindful of the reasons I eat or overeat. Hopefully it will set me up for success down the road. Hope everyone is having a good Monday!
