I went a little crazy with the bread yesterday as our schedule was kind of all over the map. As we initially were going to have family over for lunch I went out and picked up all the ingredients to make “Jersey Boardwalk” sandwiches. Before I even had a chance to start cooking I discovered that our plans had changed and we would be off to baby sitting in an hour. I ended up eating one of the rolls with butter for breakfast. When we arrived my son had picked up sandwiches and salads for lunch. More bread. After babysitting we rushed to the hospital to see our premie granddaughter and by the time it was dinner time I was famished. Rather than going out we headed home and popped a frozen lasagna in the oven. I ate that with, yes of course, a couple slices of bread.
So here I sit looking like Mr. Bread Head with my body weight moving back up a bit and a higher than normal blood sugar reading. Sometimes being a Pop Pop has it’s drawbacks.
Well there is only one thing left to do… “Hit those weights hard Billy! You totally screwed up yesterday and you will perform this morning. You will raise the weight on each exercise and hammer out as many reps as your body can muster. A roll and butter? What the hell were you thinking? You don’t eat things like that. All you had to do was grab a protein shake and go. And you should have taken that sandwich apart and thrown that bread right in the trash. And dinner could have been just a small piece of lasagna and a big salad, not a piece of freaking bread”.
I find that this happens each time I lose control of my own schedule and I must learn to stop and really think about what and where I will eat during the day rather than allowing life to pull me into directions I don’t want to go when it comes to food. So here I stand with yet another simple rule… “Don’t be a BreadHead”!
