What A Whirlwind Weekend

Even though it's only Sunday, it's been a very busy weekend. Yesterday I helped set up for a wedding at the beautiful Castle Hill in Ipswich for a wedding planner I used to intern for. I'm really glad that I came prepared with snacks and everything because I was so "go, go, go" that when I finally stopped at 5:00 (I hadn't eaten lunch since about 12:30!) I realized I was hungry. I didn't want to be tempted by the very delicious, fattening (and probably unclean) guest food. So I was happy to have a protein bar and an apple.

The only thing I didn't like about the day was that my eating was off. Even though I had a snack at 5:00, I was still hungry from running around, but I didn't get home for dinner until 9:30 at night. I ended up having whole wheat pasta with chicken sausage and red sauce, but having all those carbs late a night was NOT a good idea (even though I was having a super sugar low). And not only that, even though I was full on pasta, I had a clean eating magazine dessert that I started to eat and realized I didn't like it because of the mushy texture... but I still finished it! Basically I am unhappy with myself for carbo loading, eating past my satiety point so late at night, and continuing to eat something just because.

The moral of the story is that I have to learn to still eat on my usual plan, even if I am busy or whatever because bad things like this happen. Obviously in the grand scheme of things one time isn't horrible, but I don't want to get into that habit of erratic eating, which something like this can lead to.
