I had one of those 13 hour work days today… if you’ve been reading this blog for a while you may remember that this happens at least quarterly. Every time I stress out about not being able to fit exercise in. Every time I stress eat because of work stress and “being unable to fit exercise in.”
But not this time!
I am determined to feel the stress and not try numbing it with food.
Tomorrow is also weigh-in day at Weight Watchers. I reminded this to myself this morning and made sure to stick to the program… even when I was uncomfortable (emotionally, not hunger-wise) and wanted to eat!
So when dinner time rolled around (and no sign of end of work day) I decided to make do with what I have available around me – mall food! A dieter’s nightmare? Nope. I’m in LOVE!!
This is the Tossed crepe wrap “designed” by me. It contained mixed greens, chickpeas, roasted red peppers, sugar snap peas, grape tomatoes and fat free cucumber dill dressing.
It was AMAZING. Did you catch that they use a CREPE as a wrap? Yeah! It’s even whole wheat and has 11 grams of protein!! And only 6 Points Plus, even leaving me with 1 point to spare. Btw, they have this cool nutritional calculator on their site. Awesomeness!
How do you stay healthy in these situations? I’d normally bring dinner with me (I will tomorrow) but I thought I could just swing by home for dinner. Staying at my work building proved to be a lot more time efficient… and actually really delicious.
