I work at a university, and when the "kids" are away, my coworkers and I make many opportunities for poor eating by visiting local restaurants at lunch. I managed to avoid eating awfully this week, but a couple of times it was not good. I'm glad to see this week end. I feel like I need to be a part of things and be present to my colleagues and take part in the fun, and I did try to make good or at least better choices at the places we visited. I did do some advance planning. I guess I should pat myself on the back for the small victories.
What I have noticed this week though, several times, is the way that sugar in the form of white bread, sweets of any sort, and rice just sends me over the edge. It's like once I taste it, all inhibitions are gone. I never really noticed this too much before. I'll be a lot better off if I just avoid the stuff to start with.
I used to practice saying "I don't eat that," a phrase that is difficult for a Southern plate-cleaner. :) I've got to get back to that.
Hope you all are having a good weekend! I'm excited to have a week ahead with fewer temptations!
