This week hasn't been the best for this wheat-free, dairy-free, pescetarian diet thing. Earlier this week, Chuck Sykes (the big cheese) came in to tour the office. Sykes ordered about a million cupcakes for the event and staff were allowed to have as many as they wanted. I resisted ... then wavered. I really wanted one and hadn't had any desserts in a week - that's a long time (for me)! So I caved and had one. To be honest, it wasn't that good, either. Maybe because for a week, I hadn't eaten any processed foods/sweets. Or maybe it really just wasn't that good. All it tasted like was processed, chemical-laden food. It definitely was like some pre-packaged cake mix and icing. I ate most of it and threw the last bit away because I really just wasn't enjoying it.
Then I hadn't had a chance to go grocery shopping and hadn't packed a big enough lunch to keep me going for my 10 hour shift. So I went to Tim Horton's and got a whole wheat bagel with butter. A co-worker also offered me a Lindt easter egg (the mini kind) that day. That was all for the slip ups! (Not too bad, I think, considering).
Last night, I was at a party and didn't drink at all, then went to the bars and didn't drink there, either! I think that is pretty good for me. But after leaving the bar, I was so hungry and my girlfriends got some street meat ... so I caved and got some, too. I figure that's better than drinking, since the sausage at least had some nutrients.
Aaaannnd this morning I may have had a bowl of ice cream. So this week hasn't been a good week at all. I still have been eating tons of fruits and vegetables, and until this morning had avoided dairy, which I know to be a trigger food. Wheat (or at least gluten) has no bad effects on me.
So I have to get my ass back into gear. I've had too many slip-ups this week. I said when I started this week, I was going big or going home. Actually, I am going home to my parents - I'm moving out this weekend. But I digress! I have to step it up and eat well. I think tomorrow will consist of me doing a lot of cooking to prep for my upcoming week at work. Oh well ...
