I must plan lunch; if I don't THEN BIG TROUBLE
Friday, March 22, 2013
The first week I was at my new position, I packed a lunch every day with snacks. Mainly a raw food diet with some days of tuna sandwiches. THEN week 2, I got lazy, but still ate great. THe thing was that I had to GO somewhere (primarily Whole Foods) to get foods. It's too easy to pick up chocolate or cookies and justify that it's OK if they are organic or made with fruit sweetener; calories are calories.
This is what I have come to realize. No plan is a disaster waiting to happen. I just lived it and maybe that's what needed to be done. I had a crap week, very little exercise, but mainly because my mood was bad due to buying the wrong things from Whole Foods.
Back to planning on Tuesday.
I am off to D.C. tomorrow for my sis's wedding. She has an awesome big dog whom she rescued and is a mutt. She LOVES to fetch and wrestle. Should be a lot of fun for me and the family. My sis is also a very skinny person and always has watched herself regarding health. I doubt I'll be tempted at her house (where I"m staying for one night) with all her organic stuff. It actually will be good.
I'll be back Monday night, rested and ready to tackle another week. I better get my ass in gear since my new scale should be arriving any week now. I'd hate to step on a new scale only to find out that I really did myself in.
The nice comments by my Spark Friends were awesome; the support and love shown and written by many people is wonderful. I have learned that it is OK to mis step once in a while. I have been feeling like I had to eat 100%. I realized that not planning lunch triggers an excuse for me to go buy a bad lunch and junk. No fast food thank goodness, just too much chocolate, treats and organic cookies and peanut butter cups. Just typing it makes me ill. Onward.
Have a great weekend.
