Plan: CAD Atkins CALP

Yesterday lunch: chicken wings.
Dinner weird pizzas with beets spinach tomatoes some sausage etc., a buffet for staff morale because of our offices moving. It was a work thing at a restaurant that I cannot stand. 2 bites of cheesecake and 3 bites of chocolate cake for dessert. If I hadn’t been starving from being on my feet working all day I would have skipped it and eaten later. I like vegetables and trying different combinations but this restaurant insists on putting lots of jalapeños in EVERYTHING! Ruins the flavors in my opinion. But the good news is since I stayed on plan—weight is 239.4 this morning!
What are others’ strategies in this situation? If I had eaten some protein before I went I could have just skipped all this food and eaten something I preferred later I guess. Any suggestions?

If you know the menu offering ahead of time, you can choose to pick the best protein options, and limit the carbs, or...have a stash of emergency stuff at your office (tins tuna, smoked oysters, individual packets kraft mayo, to mix with the mayo, cm beef or turkey sticks - like nick's sticks off amazon, their non-flavored sticks are cm) and then skip all the food or just have your carb while there (if you can eat and get there and be done within your hour with just a slight delay for that travel time between work and the restaurant).
Sometimes, just say none of it tastes like I like, get a sparkling seltzer and don't eat at all. Enjoy the company and go home to a more satisfying meal

Life is getting...complicated and busy. Posting will be a bit hit or miss for me for upcoming weeks. I will do my best to be present whenever I can.

Wishing every one well.

Thanks Patricia,
The Smoked Oysters are a GREAT idea. I love those.
240.4 this am, I am sure from multiple desserts last night.
I am going to continue to post meals etc. here in an effort to keep myself accountable, and just appreciate anything anyone can add. Hopefully will not be TOO boring for people.
Hope you're not having problems Patricia.
Salami and olives for breakfast.
More later.
Marcy

Glad to be of help. My mother is not well, so that is taking a lot more of my focus right now.

Posting foods logs sometimes gives others some good new ideas. I am a recipe gal, glad to share what I make or what I find, any time. I "collect" cm recipes, or those that I can adjust to be cm, and keep one binder full of just recipes to try
