So here is my first post evaluating my healthy eating (or lack there of) this week. I have been trying to eat healthy for the past three weeks and while I was doing considerably well for the first two, I fell off the wagon this week. I was sick for the majority of the week and although I know that is not an excuse, I found myself craving comfort food. By comfort food I mean carbs and sugar in abundance. Monday to Wednesday I replaced dinner with all night snacking with cups of tea. I find it so difficult not to have chocolate or biscuits with my tea and this is not ideal for the waistline! This also impacted my energy levels significantly, this combined with the tiredness from being sick left me so unmotivated.
I find when I eat large amounts of sugar my blood sugar really does go a bit nuts! I would choose to eat sugary food with loads of carbs if I could but I know I don’t feel my best when I do. I had great intentions of starting to get back on track today but waking up on a Friday the last thing I am thinking about is clean eating. HOWEVER I am trying. As I am writing this in work I am eating a healthy lunch; Salmon and sweet potato with a dairy & carb free sauce, courtesy of momma bear. (I will put this recipe up over the weekend) I haven’t had much time for snacking today which I am happy about however Friday evenings are a killer for me. If I choose to go out I end up eating and drinking far too much and if I stay in, it’s usually the same!
I am going to try and avoid snacking this evening but I tend to give myself a free pass at the weekends. I don’t necessarily know if this is a good thing or not, but my plan is to try and avoid temptation this weekend as I was quite bad earlier in the week. Thank God this week is nearly over! There’s also cake currently circulating the office, this could be dangerous!
Until next week 🙂
