Food is my nemesis. It is difficult to live with it and impossible to live without it. Living in Houston where there are great restaurants around every corner makes it very difficult to prepare food at home and then there are those Texas-sized portions. You can feed 2 ½ persons from 1 restaurant entrée in Texas. Recently, a colleague was here from Budapest for a month on expense account and he told me even though he was working out every day at the hotel he still gained 6 kilos! (I still need to convert that to pounds in my mind.)
How do I eat my daily meals? Normally, I eat three meals a day with an afternoon snack – during that 3pm lull. I sit down to eat lunch, dinner, and breakfast on the weekend but breakfast during the work week is eaten in the car driving to work or in the office while checking email. I know this is a bad habit but it seems so hard to break because I am always crunched for time in the work week mornings. Writing this blog post has helped me to see that I really need to make this change.
