It’s my final night away on business and the last time this week that I am required to dodge the ‘A la Carte’ experience (said with tongue planted firmly in cheek) that is my hotel restaurant.
Tonight to celebrate I enjoyed a bed picnic for one, courtesy of that great British tradition the Marks and Spencer Food Hall and my newly acquired or perhaps, relocated willpower.
The Bed Picnic menu was as follows …
1 x chicken breast (skin removed, naturally!)
1 x rainbow salad (includes yumminess such as chickpeas, edamame beans, pomegranate seeds, spinach leaves, lentils and peppers)
1 x fat free vanilla yoghurt
1 x banana
A bottle of water
In the past I’ve always linked working away with treating myself. The odd glass of wine at the end of the day, a flapjack and a bag of crisps “because you’ve been working hard and deserve it”. I’m sure you get the picture.
It was, I admit a little strange coming out with no snacks and nibbles but I’ve come to realise I’m carrying this blog around on my shoulder like a little voice of conscience and well, so far it’s working! Long may the voice of fit foot keep me in line!
I would however appreciate more ideas to add to my defences so would love to know what tactics you use to keep yourself in line?
