Orientation was only til 1 today and after that we were released to the real world. It feels great to be back and hopefully within a day or two I should be back to the swing of things. Foodwise, the breakfast spread included cookies and huge muffins which I tried to not even look at. I had a protein shake again on the way there. I just rabbed me some ice water and sat pretty. Lunch was catered from a Greek place I love. I had some of the salad minus the dressing along with a grilled chicken breast. I declined the rice, sauces, pita bread and dessert. The chicken was a tad salty but overall I think I did pretty good.
After orientation, I headed to my work area and found that they had ordered pizza to "celebrate" my being back. There was also some cookies for dessert. I thanked them but politely declined. My easy excuse was that lunch was served at orientation so that took care of it. Of course, It smelled good but I didn't cave. I just need to keep my momentum and willpower going.I heard some talk about a pizza party and a pot luck scheduled for next week....did I mention I love everyone but it is food central over here? I was not kidding haha.
I made it home and our baked chicken fajitas were ready and waiting. It was a great way to end my day. After cleaning up, I set out to fix my lunch for tomorrow. My plan is to stay away from the cafeteria and neighboring restaurants. So this will be the start of my LUNCHBOX OF THE NEXT DAY series (sounds official doesn't it?)
I have a salad with spinach, tomatoes, radish and carrots. I also have a cutie peeled and ready as well as a Colby cheese stick. The little dressing container actually has some EVOO and lime juice to use as dressing. I may add some avocado to the salad in the morning, For snack just in case I need one, I have an ounce of radish, celery and carrots. Have a great Wednesday! Until next time!
