It's the most wonderful time of the year. And so in offices everywhere, junk food persists. Today, I found myself wandering to our kitchen area, opened that "special" cabinet door, and here is what I found. I told you about my love of Chex Mix the other day. The problem I had today was to the need to get to the grocery store. I resorted to packing the following:
1 sweet potato
3 slices of turkey lunch meat
carrots and celery
Clearly a day of eating to sustain and not much for pleasure.
My breakfast consisted of the usual three eggs, and today I had two slices of turkey lunch meat with it. I was pressed for time, so I did not make the time for getting in any veggies this a.m. MISTAKE. Because I was pretty hungry today and I did not have any good source of protein to fill me up.
What did I do? Well, I work in a school, so not two seconds later I hear, "Uh.....Mr. Spinner....can I talk to you?" (A student needed to see to discuss an issue). "Why are you taking a picture of food?"
I thought of that scene from Fletch when he tells the two airplane repair guys, "Don't tell me my business boys. I was just checkin' the luggage!!" (That scene is most famous for, "Come on boys. Maybe you need a refresher course. It's all ball bearings these days!"
My point here is that I planned poorly today, however I fought off those ghosts and vampires by being distracted by my work. The reality is that I could have dug into the comfort food and told the student to hang on a second. I think what kept me away was the fact that I weighed myself this a.m. and I'm down to a record low 237 lbs. since starting Crossfit six months ago. That, coupled with I had a fairly successful WOD last night which you can check out here. No way was I going to let myself go for a "quick fix". Damn, it was hard. I LOVE CHEX MIX!!! It's a constant battle sometimes.
.......and I told the student I was "doing some detective work." I wonder if she would have believed me if I told her I was "just checkin' the luggage!!!??!"
