Rate My Meals – 2010-12-01

Posted Dec 01 2010 8:32pm

You may remember that yesterday I warned I was going to a conference today that promised the following:

  • Lunch will be served from 12:00pm until 1:30pm.
  • Immediately following the keynote, plan to attend the Cocktail Reception. The hosted reception features cocktails and alcohol-free beverages, as well as tasty hors d'ouvres!

I wrote that I needed help to find the strength I needed, and your thoughts must have been stuck in my head because I had a successful day of eating, in my opinion. And they didn't even mention the cookies and other sweets I was also faced with!

Let's take a look at my meals for today and see if you agree with me that I did well:

Wednesday Meals

Breakfast was oatmeal with pomegranate seeds and blackberries, a slice of toast with peanut butter, a banana and 8 oz of spicy hot V8 .

My options for lunch were limited to wraps, salad, chips and cookies and other desserts. I went with the salad with just a little bit of ranch dressing and just one half of a turkey wrap sandwich. No chips, no dessert. If I wasn't focused today I guarantee you I would have started with two half wraps, and chips, and cookie, and I probably would have gone back for another half wrap. The reception at the end of the day did indeed have hors d'ouvres, but the closest I got was the smell. They had BBQ meatballs that you could smell from across the room. Man did they smell good. But I knew I would not do well with the finger food so I stayed away. No alcohol either, just a bottle of water.

My wife made tacos for dinner so I modified my recent dinner salad a bit – the rest of the herb greens, regular chopped lettuce, a 5oz chicken breast chopped up, half an orange bell pepper, a mini cucumber, some sport peppers, a small amount of taco meat, salsa and just a smidgen of shredded cheese. Yogurt for dessert, and another small glass of V8.

I'm a little bit worried that I may get hungry tonight before bed and will wonder off the reservation as it were but I'm trying to hold out. The hot tea is helping.

So how do you think I did? Click a star!
