Anyway, yesterday I was pretty good (half a sandwich for lunch, some rice and chicken for dinner, and only one fun-size chocolate bar and a mini-cupcake because dammit they had cupcakes in the kitchen).
Today for lunch I was going to go over to Fishfood -- one of the newer and better cafes on campus -- because they had mac'n'cheese and fried chicken and cornbread and brisket and god knows what else. I was planning to just get half a serving of mac'n'cheese and limit to that.
But I showed up at 11:45am -- which normally would be empty -- and it was packed with the chicken/mac'n'cheese line going out the door!
So I decided I didn't feel like waiting in the long line and went to Backyard to get a salad. No eggs, no cheese, no avocado on it, and only a little bit of ranch dressing (I suck because the salad dressings I like are all creamy and bad for you, but I think maybe if I just use less, I'll be okay?). And half a fudge brownie instead of a whole one.
Funny to me is that part how my desire to wait in line was a lot less than my desire to eat things that aren't good for me to be eating.
I don't necessarily think that I should cut out all of the food that I enjoy eating here, but I'll have to figure out a way to limit it. Maybe even just taking half as much as I would have before, or trying to put everything in to-go boxes or some smaller container. I'm going to try this for a week or two and see how it goes...
