Day #269 - Half way through the week

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Yes...I worked out yesterday, although briefly I did what I was suppose to do. 30 minutes elliptical, 20 minutes treadmill, 45 squats, 16 jacks and weights

Eating was on point all day. Stuck with my smoothies even though I accompanied a co-worker to get chicken tenders and fries (which she says I got her started on emoticon ). I drank my smoothie and ate my fruit and veggies throughout the day. Had a sensible dinner and that is a good day. I find myself munching a lot more eating like this. I guess being bored at work don't help. But at least the positive thing is that I'm munching on the healthy snacks that I have stocked at my desk.

Do anyone else have to deal with greedy co-workers? I have a few that see me unpack my daily haul or stock my stash food cabinet and they commence to begging. What gives? Lazy? Cheap? what is it!!!! I have no problem saying no you can't have any. I explain why I bring this stuff in and especially if you're not contributing, replacing or in need I can't help you. As someone who hauls this heavy stuff in daily, weekly on the train and you drive to the front door, I can't help you.

Okay that's my vent for the day emoticon emoticon

Tomorrow is my weigh-in day and I'm hoping these little changes I've made to my diet will give my stubborn weight loss journey a swift kick in the buttocks. I think this weeks weigh-in will be out office BLC mystery week. Where they give a prize to the front runners for the midway point. It was suppose to be last week but half the people didn't weigh-in.

    Yep, they will get you for your "snacks". Luckily no one else in my office really cares much about the healthy snacks that I bring so, so far i have been safe (knock on wood). But I can totally understand how you feel. I weigh in tomorrow too, I wish you a successful (low) number on the scale.

P.S. Maybe you should set up a change jar on your desk and start your on personal vending/ desk machine. emoticon

    My girlfriend came up to my desk and we are having a conversation. It was time for my morning snack. I brought three little mandarin oranges (Cuties) and a stick of cheese. As I open the cheese, I apologize for eating in front of her but it is time for me to eat. I ask her if she would like to split the stick of cheese. She says, "No, but I will take a Cutie." As she grabs the orange and begins peeling it. I say, "I didn't offer you any of those, but you are welcome." I don't know why our healthy food looks to appetizing to others yet they pass it up in the store.

    Yeah, there are always the greedy co-workers! I always tell them to give me some money & I'll get them some healthy snacks too. I had to start bringing only what I was going to eat for that day into the office & leaving the rest in my vehicle. Putting snacks in the frig with your name on it really doesn't work either. It still comes up missing. But since I added some extra fiber to one of my meals a while ago, my food stays in the frig now. LMBO Good luck with the weigh in!! emoticon
