Lunch today

Today lunch consisted of:

Shaved Turkey breast (68)
Small tomato (7)
Spinach and rocket (17)
Carrot (20)
Rice cake (35)
Capsicum (pepper) (10)


I think it ‘s getting easier.  I think. Mind you it is Friday and all I can think about is having a very dirty vodka martini on the rocks after work.

This is definitely evidenced (apart from the whole martini thing) by the fact that the rest of the team have gone out for Dim Sum and I am left in the office to answer the phones and eat my turkey breast salad.

Tomorrow night I just know I am going to run into big troubles.  Mr. Man and I have accepted an invitation to degustation with my biggest client.  I mean I couldn’t say no now could I?  My anxiety levels are at an all time high thinking of how I can avoid the 7 courses.  No drinking, no problem.  You can excuse that on driving, but not eating…

A part of me wants to come clean and say “You know what, I can’t do that, but how about we go here (insert Thai restaurant).  You see the reason is, I’m taking responsibility for my health and degustation just doesn’t fit into the plan at the moment”.  But no, I chickened out.  You can’t hide when there is only four of you.  Now way, not at all.

The other thing I don’t want to do is starve myself before and after the meal so I make up the calories.  The main reason I’m back on the plan is to look after my health.

What to do, what to do…

Thought you might like to see the menu.  Any tips?

  2. Hey Cat – the problem with degustation is that you get EVERY SINGLE COURSE!!!! Not just one or two – that’s why I’m in a pickle.
