On The 3rd Day of Christmas... true love sent to me three waves of clients.  Actually one wave was a no show, but I had to schedule for them, so this day presented with a vengeance the problem I have had with this job with regards to my health.  I had breakfast around 9:45 because my time at work started at 11.  I was supposed to have an appointment right at 11, but the client was an hour late.  I still took them out, but I got back 5 minutes after my 2pm client arrived.  I immediately started helping them and by the time I was done it was 5:30pm and I hadn't eaten since breakfast.  I wasn't in pain or overly hungry, but having that long between meals sends my body into storage mode.  I also tend to eat too much in the following meal.  I think I did OK, considering I have already eaten dinner and I forced myself to stop before I felt full.  We'll see what it does to my weight loss, but considering today is my veggie day I am glad it had to happen today when I am monitoring my intake that much more closely.  I am thinking about taking a few boxes of lean pockets or something similar to work to keep for occasions just like today.  I could eat a little something in as little as 10 minutes and keep myself on track a lot better.  It all comes down to planning, and I have known for some time how important that is.  I guess I am still adjusting to the new lifestyle with this job, and there is a learning curve to climb, both with my work and living with it.  I'm getting there, but I am not there yet and it is good to realize that.

  1. Planning is such a good defense! Whenever I look at those around me who have enviable bodies, they are the people who plan for food. They bring their lunch, and they pack healthy things.
