Welcome to the 2010 Olympic Team

New day, new week, new job, new start!
I've recently been asked to join the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics team ( I chronicle the invite here)
and had to change job locations for the 2 to 3 month assignment for the games and the para-Olympic games (after which I will be transferred back to my old role, sigh)
New location means a complete change in routine - eating, working out and planning/creating meals.

New Location Issues:

1. There's no parking available at the new office tower and transit doesn't run near to where the office tower is (a 10 to 15 minute walk is closest bus stop).
PLUS SIDE: I'll have to walk a little extra every day (extra cardio, woo!)

2. Due to potential long hours and unscheduled shift changes, I won't be able to go to my usual crossfit class @ 5:30pm cuz I'll never be able to get there in time  
PLUS SIDE: Fully equipped, on site gym with personal training on site and fitness classes, yay

3. The kitchen area lacks everything I'm used to. I didn't realize how spoiled I was in my current location and how much I took a functioning microwave, a cutting board, space in the fridge for your pre-packed lunch and a sharp knife for granted!  
PLUS SIDE:.....still trying to figure this one out. Bringing in your own mini cutting board (like I plan to do tomorrow) is not really a 'plus side' thing.
    ROLL CALL

    brekky (8am)

    3/4 cup yogurt
    1/2 cup all bran cereal
    1/2 cup of delicious blueberries














    mid morning snack (10:30am)
    2 clementines

    lunch (1pm)
    distracted by the lack of cutting utensils and a cutting board, I ate at the hot cafeteria instead and got:
    5 perogies
    1/2 vegetarian stuffed yellow pepper
    1 cup of greens with hummous dressing
    2 tbsp full fat sour cream











    mid afternoon snack (3:30 to 5pm)
    2 clementines
    1 babybell cheese
    8 crackers

    dinner (7:45)
    2 cups Broccoli
    1 cup sliced mushrooms
    1/4 cup onion
    1/2 cup zucchini
    1/2 cup cooked catelli smart pasta
    3 oz grilled chicken breast
    1/2 can low fat cream of mushroom soup
    1 cup watermelon for dessert

















    DRINKS:
    3 mugs of green tea (1 tea bag I brought in my own from home and lucky I did as they don't have any at the office)
    9 glasses of water (uh oh)

    EXERCISE: None. :( Will have to kick it up a notch for the rest of the week.

    Happy Eating!
