Notes from a clean up round: KABOOM! Messy! VLCD Day 12

Rate this Entry
I started a new job today and brought my lunch of grilled chicken and diced apples to have for lunch.

Well, I was given a welcome packet with my training schedule for the week. I found out then today's schedule includes my new boss is taking me out to lunch for Italian food! Why that restaurant? Because they started serving a buffet at lunch. Guess what the offerings were? No grilled chicken. No dry veggies. Sigh.

I can't say that I abstained form non P2 foods the rest of the day, but didn't go crazy either, but obviously, there will be a setback.

On another note, I could not BELIEVE the mountains of candy they keep at this office. At my desk was a "welcome" basket containing Sun Chips, Kit Kats, mini Hershey bars, etc. I have never seen so much candy! In the kitchen is a HUGE at least 5 pound jar of mini Hershey bars. At the reception desk mini bars from Mars, Grammy Bears, etc

Then I get an email telling me there will be cake in so and so's office at 3:00.

I didn't have any of the office junk food, and I have to say, I'm glad that hcg rules it out. For me, if I start with sugar, it's really hard to stop. If it's even a question of whether I might have it, it becomes a huge distraction.

Oh! And open boxes of girl scout cookies!

Well, tomorrow is back to VLCD, and I elected to not take time for lunch and just eat at my desk so I can leave earlier to pick up my son from school.

So, the ever present pizza boxes in the fridge were pointed out to me in case I ever forget my lunch!

    Yikes!!!! My worst nightmare for sure. I also have the biggest weakness for candy, cookies, etc. At my last job I was so stressed that I ate the candy all the time-especially when I worked late and then I would not eat proper meals. It was such an awful cycle that I really could not stop until I left that job after a year. My best advice is never eat it at all-cause once you start---ugh. It sounds like you totally know this and are staying away from it. So proud of you for doing that as I knew better but let the stress get to me to and succumbed.... Hopefully every day won't be like that. Good luck. Joan

    What a nightmare. I am like you one bite and I am off and running. Sugar is very addictive. Prayers sent your way that you can stay strong. Congrats on the new job!
