First, let me count up the days calories.
Breakfast, oatmeal 160 calories
coffee 105 calories
an apple, 80 calories
Lunch, one poached egg 71 calories
one slice of dry toast to put the egg on, 60 calories
one orange, 62 calories
Total so far...538 calories and 50 ounces of water.
This afternoon, in less than an hour, my department at work is planning a Holiday Outing...call it a Christmas Party. We are apparently going bowling, and management is picking up the tab for it, including food.....pizza and pop. I am so not going to be eating that pizza! I'm on my 4th day of being COMPLETELY on task of 1200 cal/82 ounces and I am not going to blow it now. There are going to be much more challenging days ahead this month, and the last thing I want to do is blow it on a work event.
I'm filling up on water as I write this, bottle number 4. On my way to the bowling alley, I'm swinging by my house to grab a banana, and a string cheese. (should have done that when I was home for lunch...duh!) Those will keep me filled for a couple hours until its over. And I'm taking 2 bottles of water with me.
Wish me luck....I'll be back to let you know how it went.
