Plan B: January 29, 2010
Friday, January 29, 2010
This has been a challenging day for me.
My officemate has retired and this was her last day at work. We threw a party for her this morning in the office -- there were plenty of sweet treats and a fruit platter. Shortly afterwards, we took her out for a Mexican Fiesta for lunch. There were margaritas, chips and salsa, lots of food, and more sweet treats.
The first part was a success for me. I didn't eat any sweets at the office party. I drank some coffee and ate a few pieces of fruit. I spent my time socializing with coworkers and re-stocking the fruit platter.
The second part was not so successful. I did eat chips and salsa. Usually, chips are my downfall. Today, I ate about 10 of them. I'm amazed that I was able to stop. Seriously! I declined the margaritas, but did drink two light beers. I ate two beef tacos, some spanish rice and about a tablespoon of refried beans. I passed on the deserts.
The damage wasn't as bad as I anticipated; I have 236 calories remaining for the day.
So, my Plan B is:
* Continue drinking water
* Keep on walking (get my 10,000 steps for the day)
* Subway for dinner (six-inch veggie delight (no cheese))
It is in writing. That is my plan and I'm sticking with it!
