Daily Food and Fitness Diary - 1/14/2008

VERY BAD DAY!!! Started off good, had a Vegan Breakfast Wrap and some pineapple.....then "THE WORK TRAP" got a hold of me!!! The client that I'm auditing ordered Pizza for everyone who came in (because Mass. got a BUTT load of snow today!!)...so I had 2 slices! And when I finally made it back to my hotel room this evening I was STARVING!! And what met my nose in the hotel lobby? The sweet scent of hot wings and freshly baked cookies!!! So, needless to say I had a gang of calories today! But I am going to take my butt downstairs to the gym and hit that treadmill!!!

Tomorrow is a new day!

Well, it's the start of "Busy Season" in "Auditor World"...this means HIGH stress, LONG hours, WAY TOO MUCH work, etc. And, to top it off, I'm out of town in Massachusetts. So, I'm REALLY going to try to make healthy food choices even though I'm eating out for the next 2 weeks!!! Sigh...It's going to be a struggle, but I can do it if I try! And, the hotel I am staying at has a gym, so once I'm done with my 12-15 hour days, I'm going to try to get some exercise in. WISH ME LUCK!!!!

The Work Trap

Nothing can be more deadly to a healthy eating program than WORK!

So, today I come into worked all hyped to have a "good" day. And, I start off well. I have a Soy Southwest Style Breakfast Burrito (I LOVE these) and a Banana for breakfast. I forgo a mid morning snack because I was honest with myself and said I wasn't hungry and could wait for lunch. So lunch comes and I have my Lean Cuisine Chicken and Spinach Panini..............and then it walks in: A tray of "goodies" I try to fight it....I try...but I cave!! A white chocolate chip macadamia nut cookie!!!!! Damn.

It seems like every time you turn there is ALWAYS something to tempt you at work...someone brought in freshly baked cookies, catered meetings, give aways, free lunch days, vending machines, co-workers cute kid selling Girl Scout Cookies, office parties, etc.


I need some self control. Does any one know of any ways to distract your self? Or of any alternative snacks to pack so you don't feel "left out" while everyone else is indulging?

WAY hard this time around....

.....so as you can see, I'm not keeping up with my posts like I should. I'm in a MAJOR RUT! Me and Food are "FRIENEMIES". Something is going on with me where it seems like I have NO control over myself....I'm eating like CRAZY! Times before I've been able to practice great self-control in the beginning and find myself cracking later down the line. Now, it seems that I can't get on the horse!!!
