My job is making me fat

When I'm bored - I eat. If there's no food to eat, then I go and get food to eat.
I'm working on the Olympic team as a girl Friday (ie everything that needs to get done, they can ask me to help get it done) but as the Olympics are currently running smoothly (yay!), there's not much to do right now. Leading up to the Olympics there was actually so much to do that I was too busy to eat. Now though, while the Olympics are taking place around us and everyone is at their posts, doing what they're supposed to do, we can now sit back and watch the magic happen.
Now there's always something to do and a task to be completed and some administrative work to do, but once you switch from 14 hour days (with 20 hours of work to do) to 7.5 hour days (with 7.5 hours of work to do) you don't get that constant rush of adrenaline.Sigh. Who would ever think I'd miss 10+ hour work days and my lack of a social life.
Sigh. Good times

Current Office Treats:
  • Cookies (oatmeal raisin, white chocolate chip and dark chocolate chip
  • High calorie/high fat processed granola bars
  • Snickers bars
  • Mars bars
  • Rum balls (I don't know why the cafeteria brought these in for February???)
  • Xmas cookies (see comment above)
  • Ferrero Rocher  (mmmmm this is good anytime of year!)
  • Cadbury 100 calorie chocolate bars
  • Rice Krispie squares
Current Waist Size : Size 10 but still pending.... As of today I've said no to all of the above but the Cadbury chocolate and the Ferrero Rocher.  C'mon, its Ferrero Rocher! You don't say no to that. You simply accept your fate and add 30 minutes to your cardio session. Deal!


I've been slacking on writing down what I eat. But no longer! I promise to blog it out at least 3 to 4 times a week, including one weekend day (because weekends are when I'm usually naughty- food wise AND otherwise, hee hee).

1/2 cup all bran cereal
1/2 cup almond crunch cereal
1 banana, sliced
3/4 cup 2% milk

Ham and cheese sandwich on rye
1.5 cups lentil soup

Afternoon Snack (yah, I was a little hungry today):
2 cups pasta 
1/2 cup pasta sauce
2 oz in meatballs

Ferrero Rochers! 4....@ last count, hee hee hee
Cadbury 100 calorie chocolate bars (1 QTY, woo!)
How can something so delicious be so wrong!?

1/2 cup brown rice
1 cup sweet and sour pork
2 cups mixed vegetables
Coffee! Soooo much coffee!
Water: ummmm  not so much. Only 6 glasses. Must drink more tomorrow. And hopefully, less coffee.

Exercise: Forced myself to go (haven't been since last Thursday)
30 minutes elliptical (level 16/20)
6 minutes stepper (level 12/20)

Tomorrow is a new, better, healthier, more active day!!!

Happy Eating

Thank you for stopping by and following my blog! I now follow you too. Wow, you're at the Olympics. That is very cool.

If you think your job is making you fat, try being a teacher. There is food everywhere, everyday, for any reason.

I am looking forward to reading more about you:)
