So I work for a big pizza chain, it's rough.
I feel like I do a lot of physical activity everyday. I'm lifting trays of dough, buckets of sauce, carrying 15lb boxes of cheese all over the store. I'm rushing to a phone or the oven, trying to make the pizzas as fast as possible. It's a lot of movement and several times a day I find myself with an elevated heart rate.
The thing is; I eat a lot. Way more than I should. I get one free meal for every shift I work. Usually I make a medium pizza and over the course of the day when it's slow I can polish the entire thing off. I'm embarrassed that I can do that without a second thought.
I'm getting better, either by bringing a lunch or just eating a reasonable portion and pitching the rest. Yes it's a waste, but the numbers on the scale are never going to go down if I can't get this horrible habit under control or banish it all together.
I find myself wishing more and more that I could work somewhere where I wouldn't constantly be around food.
