I feel gross and itís all my fault. This morning I had the opportunity to pack my healthy chicken and broccoli rice, which is around 300 calories. But Iíve been eating that for lunch and dinner for the past week. So I decided instead Iíd order a sub from Jimmy Johns, the Vito at 600 calories. I knew itíd be high, but still within my calorie range.
But my co-worker, who usually orders JJs with me, decided she didnít want a sandwich (itís a long story) and so she wanted pizza.
*sigh* I gave in. I knew it was bad for me, but I figured, once wonít kill me. After lunch I changed my nutrition counter to includeÖ*sigh again* 4 slices of pepperoni pizza, at roughlyÖ1,300 calories. That is 1,000 (one thousand) calories more then what I would have had if Iíd just packed my own lunch. Itís over 700 calories more than if Iíd ordered the sandwich. After doing the math I just feel sick.
I would say that with these lunches and the cake and ice cream birthdays every week, my office is making me fat. But I have to be honest with myself; Iím the one who ate it. I could have said no. Itís healthy to say no ( a lot healthier then a Papa Johnís Pepperoni pizza). I could have brought my own lunch. Or at the very least, I could have run the idea through my nutrition tracker beforehand. I know better. I know better! I KNOW better!!!!
I guess Iíll just have to be extra good at dinner.
