Anyone else have trouble eating healthy at work?
Friday, March 12, 2010
It seems that I can do fine, but work always ends up getting to me. I work 12 hour graveyard shifts... I have no problem bringing my food and enough snacks to last throughout the night. I would say it's 50/50 at my work.. 1/2 of my coworkers are overweight, the other half or not. Regardless, they do a "chow run" everyday. I can usually resist maybe 2 out of 3 days, but I always end up giving in. What I am thinking of doing now is leaving my wallet in the car. Where I work it's locked and very secure, so no one will steal my car or wallet... What happens is one or two people go on the "chow run" and go around the room and collect the money and take orders... so by leaving my wallet in the car, I will not be able to place an order. This last week was horrible, I only gave in one day, but then during my days off the past 2-3 days I've been continuing to eat fast food. When I have it once, it just sticks with me and makes me want the next day and the next day. I was doing so good for about 5 days, and then all of a sudden I realize I'm doing what got me fat in the first place.
I just feel like if I don't get a handle on this soon, without even knowing it I will throw in the towel, and I refuse to let this happen.
Anyone else have trouble eating healthy at work, or is it just me? LOL
