Crazy Life

So here I am, struggling, again, with my food choices.  Today is the first day of a crazy 2 month schedule.  I was hired at Costco to work in the food court.  Getting a job, AWESOME, working around food, NOT AWESOME!  With my concern about what this next two months is going to do to my diet, my family, my exercise, etc, I didn't notice my eating went haywire.  Seriously?  4 months of this and I didn't notice?  I'm really wondering if I'm ever going to get a handle on this.  Will it really be a life long battle and will it ever get easier? 

So, it's time to reign it back in.  One thing I have learned through this journey is never quit.  If you mess up, get back on the wagon and keep moving.  I'm back on it today and ready to face work tonight. 

I was expressing concern to a friend about working around all the food in the food court at Costco and she gave me a suggestion.  I'm going to take her advice because I know it's wisdom.  She knows me to be a numbers person and an analyzer and because of that she suggested that I learn the calorie content for every item in the food court.  She said I need to go in prepared so that when I'm tired, stressed, missing my family and just want to turn to the pizza or ice cream, I will have to face the calorie count. 

Calorie Counts for Costco Food Court:

1 Hot Dog w/ Bun                                           530 cal
1 Slice Cheese Pizza                                       700 cal
1 Turkey Wrap                                               810 cal
1 Chicken Bake                                              810 cal
1 container Non Fat Vanilla Frozen Yogurt      270 cal
1 Slice Comination Pizza                                 775 cal
1 Slice Pepperoni Pizza                                   717 cal
1 bowl Caesar Salad                                       786 cal

All of this information is from  I'm told Costco has the nutrition information available so I'll get that tonight & post the real calories tomorrow.  I just needed to see this before I went to work tonight.  I can't believe this.  These calories are so high.  I'm going to do my best to stay away from the food there.
