Day 699- Defeated by the Vending Machine...In a Good Way?

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

Today I had my usual breakfast of toast with 1 Tablespoon of peanutbutter and slice bananas for a whopping 265 calories. It usually fills me up until lunch.

So then I went to the cafeteria and they didn't have anything that really struck me until I saw the country chicken salad with fruit. Now, chicken salad may not be the healthiest choice since it has sour cream or mayo in it, but compared to the pizza, chicken tenders and mashed potatoes that are normal staples that they offer, I decided to try it.

Well it was delicious.

And definitely enough for me to eat for lunch. Especially since I had some reduced fat kettle chips for my side. But part of me wanted more. Something sweet. And so I took my dollar down to the vending machine, planning on getting the oats and chocolate Fiber One bar for 140 calories. 140 calories I had remaining, but probably didn't need all the same.

Well, I stuck that dollar in that machine 5 times. And it spit it back out 5 times.

Well played, vending machine. Well played.

    haha! I love this :) And nice job on choosing the healthiest of options - even when you know they are not as healthy as you'd like, you didn't give in to something worse! That's great progress - way to go!!

    I hate when they mix it, most good cafeterias leave them separated, like mayo and salt and sugar.

    That sounds like a very yummy idea for breakfast, I might have to try that sometime! I always feel relived as well when something is wrong with the vending machine and for some reason I can't get the snack I was desiring. It's definitely not always a bad thing!
