Food Amnesia

Work is crazy this week. This morning I was in a rush to leave the house and I forgot to grab something for lunch and also for dinner since I have dart league tonight and won't be home again. It also didn't help any that the fridge is empty again! So what does my lack of planning get me? Being nearly out of calories for the day by midday. So tonight I guess I don't get any supper. That's a bad way of life. I decided it would be a good idea to do a little food journaling this week to get myself back on track. I forget how easy it is to mindlessly choose all the wrong things and then get "food amnesia" about how many calories you really did consume for the day.

I was hungry and made some bad choices for bad I am not even going to tell you what I ate as it is embarrassing what I succumbed to picking up at the local truck stop. Let's just say they don't have the healthiest food choices and in the small town I work in the choices are very few. I get into a lot of trouble when I don't plan ahead. So to make this work week 10,000 times more challenging, I have work meetings 4 days this week and 3 have catered meals and one is probably eating out at the local greasy spoon or ordering pizza. What a food mine field! Then of course next week is the holiday that we not only stuff the bird, but we stuff ourselves...Thanksgiving. Oh my, this month may be my first non-loss or even a gain in more than a year. I have really got to kick things in gear.


  1. You can do it!! Baby steps (and portions!) will see you through. :D

  2. How hard it must be to eat out so much. I don't know how you do it.
