I Hated Today, Grr!

1 Dec

Today was such a crappy day at work, ugh, it felt like it was never going to end and it was one disaster after another. Argh! I can’t really go in to deets about what was goin on cause (1) it’s a specialized industry and unless you are in it you won’t understand the terminology and (2) I more then likely signed some kind of document saying I can’t gab. *rolls eyes*

By the end of day, hell, not even the end of day, about 2 hours in to it I was dreaming about throwing my boss out the window (we’re 24 flights up!) or banging my head against a wall so many times I could have the next day off work. 😛 Neither of which I have done…yet! lol. This week is just a crap fest and today was one more pile to add to it.

Lunch was catered today, I had forgotten that so I took a Lean Cuisine, oops. Normally I would have said no to the catered food and just eaten my lunch but I was cranky and decided to eat the free food. It wasn’t too bad – which is part of why I figured it’d be ok, not like it was pizza or anything! There were fresh made sandwiches, pasta salad, gourmet green salad (I swear that’s what they called it! lol), cheese n cracker platter and a selection of cookies brownies and tarts. I had half a sandwich (egg with raw veg, grilled veg, pesto sauce on a grainy bread), 4 penne noodles (yup, I counted) there was some kind of crumbly cheese in the pasta salad and a tomato based um, not sauce but flavouring I guess you’d call it. I also had some cheese, some garlic crackers, some raw veggies and a bite of what turned out to be a very dry not all that flavourfull brownie. So, it sounds like a lot but you have to take in to account the portions I ate. I didn’t think I ate too much but when I was estimating the points after I got home, uh yeah, I was over my points for the day by 1 point. Oops. I may have counted wrong but I always prefer to count high then low so, shrug, I am over. Luckily I didn’t feel hungry so I figured the higher pointed lunch filled me up…I think tho that is flawed cause it is now almost 9pm and I am hungry. sigh.

It’s too late in the day to eat a meal, and I don’t want to have some mindless snack, shrug, so I figure I’ll do the unthinkable and go to bed way early. I know, bed by 10pm – weirdness! But this way I will be unconscious and not aware I am hungry, lol. I really don’t want to go even farther in to my flex points like I know I probably should be doing in this situation and frankly, I am to tired and cranky to really care. *rolls eyes* Ya know, I thought this week was going to go so much smoother cause it started off so well! Ah well, maybe it’ll start getting better from here…cross your fingers for me! 😀

Today I ate:

54 grams Fibre 1 = 3 points

1/2 cup 1% milk = 1 point

Catered Lunch

    – 1/2 sandwich = 3 points (?)

       ( – grainy bread, 1/2 hard boiled egg, veggies, pesto sauce)

    – 4 penne noodles = 1 point

    – 6 garlic crackers = 2 points

    – 4 pieces of cheese = 8 points

    – 1 small bite brownie = 0 points

mixed raw veggies = 0 points

1 Activia yogurt = 2 points

1 medium slush = 2 points

Total points eaten = 22.

Keeping in mind today is all about estimating numbers so I could be counting too high or too low, shrug, no real way to know. I know I shouldn’t of had the slush but I had to stop to buy skytrain tickets on the way home and again, in a cranky mood, I figured screw it. shrug.

It’s not a good mind set to let myself get in. I used to over eat when stressed or way upset, I think a lot of people do, and while I didn’t do that this time I also didn’t control myself as much as I normally do. I have decided to look at it as progress though. I mean, there once was a time I would have stopped at McD’s or gone and gotten a donut or come home and made Kraft Dinner or…well, you get the idea, but this time, I didn’t. Sure, I drank the slush but that’s 2 points compared to the 15 points and higher I could have eaten…so, that’s progress right? Just nod and smile so I can pretend you agree with me, k? K. 😀
