Default Turning down the FREE lunch...

Yep, the will power is strong
My Boss just offered to buy us all lunch from the local greezy burger joint and I politely declined, even tho I'm kinda hungry and the office now smells like burgers and fries.
The cottage cheese and nectarine I had earlier is barely keeping the hunger at bay, but I'll pass on the bad calories any day besides, my 6 pack is just starting to show again and I don't wanna sabotage myself.

Lol...yep, I used my lunch hour to meet up with a couple buyers from Craigslist (I'm selling some old appliances) and I managed to make a chicken sandwhich before I had to go back to work. I ate just enough to tie me over till supper, however, I'm also going for a run after work so I will be starving once I get home.
I'm trying to keep a consistent 600 cal deficient for the next couple of weeks.

Thumbs up

When will power works, it is awesome!

You guys are awesome!

I went to a restaurant today and order chicken no fries, girl brings fries anyway-oops DANGER!

Well I only ate around 10 or so of them and brought the rest home for the girlfriend to eat.

I am still amazed that I was able to do that.

I had just done the stairs in my building for 35 minutes, and then went for a 35 minute walk, and I didn't want to do all that just for some french fries!

Good for you! And yes, you do not want to waste that exercise over some fries. I used the same rationality when I was cutting out the beers when I first started to mentally train myself to say no.

Oh boy...here we go again A customer we are working with just dropped off 5 large pizzas.....Arrgh! I haven't eaten pizza in probably at least a year....no biggie tho, I found out that pizza makes me sick - too much greasy, fatty saturated fats and bulky gross carbs
Besides, I'm running a race tomorrow and I don't want any stomach trouble bubbling up at the wrong time


Hey 1dwing, Howdy and thanks. Do you run?
