We had a pot luck at work. It's fair to say this caused me a little anxiety. Would I eat too much? Would this throw me off my game? It was going to be a pasta bar with salad, appetizers, and dessert.
I did great. I was hungry at 11:30 which is 45 minutes before my lunch hour. Instead of snacking, I ate my lunch early. I took 1/2 cup of two different kinds of pasta and two different sauces. A big bowl of salad (lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers) and had a 1" piece of pumpkin bar and 1" piece of turtle brownie.
No morning or afternoon snack. Plus, I went for a 30 minute walk on my lunch hour.
After work, my family got together to move my aunt's furniture to her new assisted living apartment. We weren't done until 7:30 p.m. My first reaction was to stop for fast food on our way home. Instead, considering how late it was, we went home and had a bowl of cereal for dinner. Then I had some cashews and candy corn (measured and counted).
We'll all have challenges along the way. Put on a brave face and keep going!
