Day 18/600 - slipped.....but didn‘t crash
Tuesday, March 03, 2020
Today could have been a complete loss, and potentially could have set me back quite a bit. I think I did well recovering and I am back in the driver seat.
Had 2 food supplier meetings set up today, and expected to just come in for meetings, planning, etc. Unfortunately that was not the case. Upon arrival we were greeted with a full food display and were invited for a product testing. 40+ food items on full display. Since, unfortunately, food testing is part of my job description and there is not really a way to get out of it. I am still working on my ability to navigate through them by making the right choices, and limit my the amounts I taste, versus going back and eating large quantities.
Well, it definitely didn‘t start off well and/or go as well as it could have, and I definitely consumed my calorie budget for the day before noon - I did my best recalling and recording all. But, I was able to limit my intake of carbs. The biggest issue, since it was all prepared foods, it was heavy heavy on salt again.
Second supplier, we were lucky as there was not much presented to eat/taste. By the time we finished the supplier visits I felt the thought that this was a lost day looming. But, driving home, I refocused and recommitted to not let the evening get away from me, and to make the right choices. I know I ate enough and this could get me through to tomorrow. But do I want to take a chance and perhaps get more hungry than I have to. So, I decided to just have a couple of boiled eggs for dinner.
I am in good spirits again and I am preparing mentally for tomorrow.....3 supplier visits on the docket tomorrow. At least I will be ready and prepared now. Expect the worst, hope for the best?!
