Normally, I would’ve said that this week was a setback. I have eaten a LOT more than I normally do. And I can feel it, in the way that my body carries itself. However, since I am still just preparing to manage my weight, and not actually doing it yet, I will cut myself a break. I will consider this week a learning experience.
What went wrong this week? Well, my problems really started on Wednesday. We had a potluck at work. There was a lot of yummy foods to choose from, and a whole lot of those foods to eat. We started with donuts in the morning, and really never looked back from there. There was chili and seven-layer dip and pie and ice cream and…
Things went even worse on Friday. The company that I work for moved to a different building Friday evening. To help allay some of the inconvenience, the company I work for provided free pizza all day for employees. I didn’t get horrible carried away, but the 5 pieces of pizza I ended up eating was still 3 more pieces than I should have eaten. And then, Friday afternoon, work provided pie. I had a big piece of Dutch Apple Pie, and a not-much-smaller piece of pumpkin pie. Added with the pizza, this was WAY too much food for me to eat. And far too much food in a 48-hour period.
Sunday was, of course, Easter. And Easter is one of the big eating holidays. Lots of candy, lots of chocolate, lots of food. It was a fun holiday, but I again ate too much. (A common theme for last week, I am sure that you will agree.)
My assignment for last week was to try to find times during the day when I can fit more exercise in. I am actually going to wait until next week to answer this. Since I now work in a different building, I’ll have to make some modifications to what I found.
I hope everyone had a great week!
