A few weeks ago, in early February, I was checking out the Chick-Fil-A (where Drew got his job) on Facebook … and they had this post about “sign up your company to win free breakfast”. And so, I signed up our pharmacy (this particular CFA knows us – they have helped with Blood Drives we’ve hosted, held meetings in our classroom, etc).
And today, with my boss in my office, I was working on learning about some new stuff I will soon be taking on (project manager of our synchronized pharmacy plan, if you must know … exciting stuff! ha!), and I got a call from the pharmacy side to come up front. Usually that means they have had a rush and need back-up. As I arrived, 2 women were in the waiting area, and everyone was staring AT ME. It was a crew from Chick-Fil-A with FREE BREAKFAST for us!!! Needless to say, I was the hero of the morning! 🙂
That’s all great … except Chicken Minis are NOT “on plan” for a real Trim Healthy Mama diet! 😦
But being the non-stressed-out-about-this kind of person that I am, I had 3 chicken minis with NO GUILT! 😉
The rest of the day was a challenge too as we had a baby shower for one of our employees during lunch, but since the theme was “football game snacks” there was plenty of meat/protein options to eat: meatballs in tomato sauce, summer sausage and cheese (courtesy of ME!), a veggie tray, and some fresh fruit. I might have had a FEW nacho chips.
But you know what?! It’s ok. I’ve been drinking ONLY water or stevia-flavored beverages, and I’ve definitely cut down on sugar. I managed to pass on the cupcakes that were served. THAT was hard!!!!!! I long for the day when I don’t even crave that kind of stuff any more. I can’t imagine ……….
For dinner, we had lasagna – major CARB load – but it was a low sugar meal. No garlic bread for me and I was sadly too lazy to cut up a sald. And for dessert I had an Oikos 0-0-0 Greek yogurt – no sugar, just stevia.
While this probably isn’t the route to LOSE a ton of weight any time soon, I am feeling somewhat like I’m achieving my mini-goal of cutting down on sugar and moving towards a healthier life-style.
