Have you ever had a day when all you can think about is what you're going to eat next? That was today. I'm supposed to eat protein - in particular meat protein for breakfast. So I ate 3 cold meatballs on the way to work because I was running late. For the rest of the ride in, all I thought about was what else I could have when I got there. Hot chocolate, trail mix packet.
When I got to work, though, it was a madhouse. We're at quarter end (again), and the pace is feverish. In between tasks at Crazy Town I thought about lunch. What to have for lunch. Where to eat lunch. Maybe I could go to the bakery across the street and get a cookie after lunch. Or wait - maybe go to Frostings and get a cupcake!
As luck would have it, I took a very late lunch. Olga and I went to Pei-Wei. I had a noodle bowl, and usually I eat half of it. Today I ate the whole thing. Reason? I was too lazy to go get a takeout container, and besides, it tasted really good. At least I was too ashamed to bring up cupcakes.
I didn't have dinner. I wanted dinner, but I didn't have any. So at least I had a teensy bit of self control. I did go down and cut 3 hunks of Swiss cheese - my favorite snack when I don't eat dinner. L and I just got back from our walk. I tried to keep up a brisk pace and I did pretty well. My joints are having a good night.
So now off to wash my face and settle in before bed. I'd better hurry. L is down there making popcorn and I don't want to miss out. Maybe self control will reappear tomorrow. Oh wait, no - my boss is bringing in breakfast (all kinds of muffins) AND lunch (Cafe Rio - YAY!) How do you say no, when someone is trying to be nice? Saturday. Definitely Saturday I will get back on the wagon. It's gotta be hormones, because all I can think about are sugary carbs.
