The scale was a bit hard to pin down this morning.  Let's call it 265.5.

Sometimes when I work, meals are catered.  This can be hard for me to figure out how to deal with.  For a long time when I was on my meal plan, I packed my own meals no matter what and ignored the catering.  Then I got kinda broke and started taking advantage of every opportunity for free anything, including free food.  But often it can be hard to know how much I'm putting on my plate until it's there, and I would also find it very hard not to grab a cookie or something if offered.  Now yesterday I had thrown together a packed lunch based on a meal plan selection - a turkey sandwich and an apple.  Pretty basic.  But there was a catered lunch and so I took advantage.  This lunch wasn't buffet-style- there were packaged lunches that included a meat sandwich, a pack of potato chips, and a cookie.  All of which I ate.  I think that's 3 days in a row I've allowed my lips to touch sweets.  That is my downfall.  The beginning of the end.  So I have to be strong, and try to hang on, or else I'll slip!  ( <--- reference!)  After coming home, I ate my packed lunch for dinner and hopefully everything turned out okay, since it's hard to determine calorie-counts for just any old random meal that pops your way.

I did get a little exercise yesterday pushing some heavy stuff at work, but probably not enough to count as a workout after all.  I have the next 3 days off.  I have so much to do, but exercising is one of those things.

You may do better just saying no to sugar for three consecutive days. When I start eating sugar I find myself craving it more and more. It's hard to resist. You can do it.

I have the same problem with catered meals. I just don't want to say no!
