Day 57: Will work for willpower

1 03 2010

I can blame no one but myself for my lack of willpower when it comes to eating healthy. However, when the kitchen table in the breakroom at work is continually covered with containers of food, it makes it all that much harder to be good. Today this is what was on the table (leftovers from a small office party):

Cheesecake
Bagels
Biscuits
Fruit
Dip
Cheese
Scones
Danish
Muffins
Bread
Crackers

I’m probably missing something, but that was my quick summation while I microwaved my organic mac & cheese for lunch. I’m proud to say that the only thing I ate from the leftover goodies was one small piece of a scone. Yay me!

At least the goodies at work are nowhere near as bad for me as Chili’s Texas Cheese Fries with Jalapeno Ranch that I read about today. Here’s the run-down from the Men’s Health article:

1,920 calories
147 g fat (63 g saturated)
3,580 mg sodium

Granted, as the article mentions, the fries are intended to be shared with friends, but I’d put money on the fact that many people probably eat the entire thing by themselves. And seriously, why do restaurants even make shit like this?!

Today’s starting weight: 149

Breakfast:
— Chocolate, peanut butter, banana smoothie = 353 cal.

Lunch:
— Amy’s organic mac & cheese = 410
— Powerade Zero (mixed berry) = 0

Dinner:
— Turkey sub on hoagie = 280
— Iced tea = 0

Snacks:
— 1/3 of a cinnamon scone = 153
— Fat free chocolate pudding cup = 60

Thanks for visiting. See you tomorrow.
