Do You Eat Less When You’re Working?

I thought going back to work would help me get back onto a regular eating plan and help with my weight loss diet. Ha, I tell you…HA! Last Monday was my first day back and someone had brought treats and was offering them first thing in the morning. Sigh! I had brought carb and calorie approved soups for lunch and Angie made Mexican lasagna. She specifically asked me to try it. So, to please her (and myself) I had a small piece and some salad, and we know that anything eaten with salad has less calories, right?

But it didn’t stop there. There was cake. BIRTHDAY CAKE! You can’t turn down birthday cake or the birthday person will feel bad, right? Sigh, I know I’m making it up but I did have a small piece to celebrate Caroline’s birthday, and it was very, very nice.

I did get lots of hugs and lots of exercise. My classroom is at the end of the hall from my office, the staff room and halfway past the kitchen. So back and forth all day. I wasn’t wearing my pedometer so I have no idea how many steps I did but it was good and I was exhausted that first night. I had survived and knew I could handle work with very little problem. I also could see how there would be no ever-eating. I do not like eating while working or in front of students. It’s rude if it’s not lunch or…

Reflecting on the week that just went by, I see three ways I could lose weight:  1) stick to the plan, 2) wear my pedometer and 3) journal everything I eat. Work will help me lose weight. By telling you all this I will be on track again and eventually see great results, again. I can do this, again.

Thanks for listening.  ;D Diane
