I’ve written about this before. It’s a terrible weakness of mine and I’m not quite sure how to beat it.
Today, two meetings provided food. One was my local Rotary Club which provides breakfast every Tuesday. It’s pretty much the same. Scrambled eggs, some kind of meat – bacon or sausage or ham – some bread of some kind – biscuit, bagel or silver dollar pancakes. Yeah. There’s fruit and I’m always surprised at how many people eat it.
My other meeting was a local Association of Realtors Task Force. It’s not a regular type meeting so there was lunch served to accommodate the fact that many of the Task Force members had come from some distance. Pasta, a sauce (today with chicken), a salad and dessert.
It’s the dessert-y stuff that gets to me. The other stuff I try to take it easy on because I know I’m a spiller. I always manage to drop a little something from my fork or spoon and because my stomach’s in the way, it never makes it to the floor or table. It makes it to the front of my shirt. So I try to avoid things I can spill in public. It’s really bad form to spill.
Dessert is another story. It’s usually cookies. Today it was these cute little chocolate cannoli things, cute little macaroon and chocolate cookie things and this baklava-like thing that was verrrry tasty. Too damn tasty.
So I came home and instead of dinner, I tried to cut back by having a couple of hard pretzels and a banana. And I’m drinking lots of water.
We’ll see what tomorrow brings. I really hate meetings.
Day 4 of my personal 30 day challenge to myself.
