Ok, today I am offsite at "lab". It's at one of the steel mills. I brought my lunch today - everything healthy and I have the whole weekend planned out. Then they tell me that they are having pizza for one of the ladies who was leaving.
In hindsite, I should have just marched right in there with my sandwich and no one would have said a word. But I thought (did you ever notice that thinking gets you in the most trouble) I'd have one piece and be done. *sigh* I had...
* 3 pieces of pizza (cheese - lots of crust)
* 1 taco
* 1/2 and Italian beef sandwich
* 2 or 3 mini brownies
* 4 or 5 small peanut butter chocolate chip cookies.
Breakfast was Whole grain cereal and skim milk and my snack was a 90 calorie granola bar.
But now I am thinking all these evil thoughts...there is a heath bar calling my name in the vending machine.
**Shaking it off** Ok, so one really
bad lunch does not need to undo all my good efforts. I will immediately do a U-turn and get my mind off of food and will continue to follow my food plan as PLANNED! I will skip my afternoon snack (I think I'll be full!) if I can and I will have a healthy dinner. I will allow myself 800 more calories for the day, like I would have had if I had eaten my healthy lunch. It's over and it changes nothing..
