Well the scale is not my friend today - I weighed in up 2 pounds. That is a pretty large gain for me. But, TOM is days away, and I know the burger I had on monday at the cookout are probably the culprits for such a large gain. I havent been this high since August 13th, so at least I know its not a "real" gain. I have been so darn bloated for the last two days its no wonder.
I came up with a new phrase to spout to those who make comments about my lunch still: Quality over Quantity. Today a newer employee commented on my lunch.
Him: Thats your lunch?
Me: Yes, why? (keep in mind, my lunch consisted of perfect balance - protein, vegetable, fruit, fiber, and dairy)
Him: Well I couldnt eat that, I would be starving
Me: Why do you think you need to eat a lot to be full?
Him: I dont know, I just do
Me: Have you ever considered that its not always quantity over quality? That its what you eat, rather than how much eat ? That balance is what is key?
Nice huh? But its true....people think you need to eat a lot of food to be full. But its really what you are eating. Combining all the fruit groups into a balanced meal packs more nutrition into you so you can be mentally focused all afternoon and not feel hungry as easily. So quality over quantity!
