There is always food.
There may be a few low-cal selections like fruit and carrot sticks but my first reaction is to eat the good tasting stuff. Eggs, sausage, biscuits. Or, if it’s an evening thing, like the other day, I’ll order from the menu.
No, not the salad with a glass of water. The wrap with french fries.
Here is what the day was like….
Morning: my Rotary club – eggs, sausage, bisquit
Lunch: a Broker’s Open House (something for us Realtors) – some sandwich halves from the Atlanta Bread Co., chocolate chip cookies
Dinner: Happy Hour at Calypso Bay which is part sports bar, part Tiki Bar, part crab house. This was the wrap and french fires.
Even with that horrible day, I managed to actually lose two-tenths of a pound.
The next day, I ate a light breakfast, a moderate lunch at Panera and a sandwich made at home for dinner. Oh yeah. I did scarf down an 80 calorie yogurt cup and some pita chips. And I went to the gym to do my treadmill thing for 45 minutes (354 calories burned).
I woke up and was three pounds heavier! I couldn’t believe it.
There is something wrong with this picture. It just ain’t right.
