I woke up super late this morning, didn't have time to eat breakfast at home and forgot to grab something to take with, so I stopped at McDonald's and ordered an egg mcmuffin meal with a hot tea. I walked into work with my breakfast and you would have thought I came in topless. I work with all females, they are a wonderful, supportive group who were all there when I had my surgery. They encourage and motivate me but sometimes they are seriously food police. Co-worker A says"oh my God! are you going off your plan?!" Co-worker b says "Chrissy, you are so much stronger than this". Co-worker C says "you have worked too hard to give up now, give me your food"....ummmm NOOO! I had exactly half of the mcmuffin and half the hashbrown---came in under 300 calories and I was full without being stuffed. I felt that I had made a good choice under the circumstances, and do not feel guilty~!Especially since I know that I will be rocking a work-out tonight and that this was a once in a great while thing. But sill these ladies seem to think that I am on some slippery slope of fatness and that I am giving up...I am not giving up! But I am also not going to be a prisoner to eating "healthy"...I will have fast food on occasion, I will skip a work-out here and there, I will have an occasional glass of wine. I have another friend who is all about "clean" eating..so I stit with her and listen and shake my head and say uh-huh, and I see, but the reality is that for me "clean" eating means my plate and fork got ran through the dishwasher. Not really sure where this rambling blog is going today, it almost seems like I am justifying what I ate, but no justification is needed when I made a good choice..well, it is what it is!
