Darn the breakroom! I can’t actually blame the breakroom. I have to figure out a way to just STOP IT! Stop eating that stuff in the breakroom like it doesn’t matter, like it is free stuff, like I have no control over it, like there is no way out. STOP IT.
Okay, rant over. Other than about 700 calories worth of damage, I had a great day of food LOL. Started pre-work with a blueberry scone (1/2 fruit) and coffee. (On work days I have two breakfasts. Nothin’ wrong with that. Right, Lori?) Ate some cherries on the way in the car (1/2 fruit.) Breakfast at work was pineapple/cottage cheese/walnuts–yummy combo (1 fruit.)
Snack of baby carrots (1 vegetable.) Lunch was the leftover chicken with balsamic tomatoes over red potatoes (2 vegetables.) This was better left over! And an orange (1 fruit.)
Late afternoon snack of leftover sauteed brussel sprouts/walnuts/dried cranberries (2 servings vegetables.) And for the drive home, an apple with some of Justin’s chocolate almond butter (1 fruit.) Honestly, this stuff makes the apple into a true dessert.
So another problem I am having is wanting a snack when I get home. Now I figured out I can adjust for this by taking a little less to work. But when you eat all that extra stuff at work… Anyway, I did make a good choice–had a pear and a few walnuts (1 fruit.) And then, just maybe, I had a few more walnuts… (nuthin’ wrong with that, right, Pubsgal?)
So that brings my total to 5 fruits(!) and 5 veggies for the day. I have to really plan to get in 5 veggies at work.
Don’t worry. I am not going to write incessantly about fruits and veggies. Just a little while longer. Thanks for keeping me company on this journey.
