So, I’m having another whinge again…and yeah it’s about food AND training
I’m in a hotel in Cornwall, I’ve been staying here for ages or so it seems and I am really bored with the menu now. They can’t cook steak, so that’s off the menu – the fish is all in batter or has other rubbish with it that I can’t eat, so I’m virtually living on belly pork and salad. I am soooo, bored with the menu. Lunch doesn’t fare much better and I make that myself and bring it with me! I got bored with my usual tuna, mayo and diced peppers so I switched to chicken breast, fresh green salad leaf, coleslaw and sometimes some olives – but I’ve run out of them now and I forgot to buy some at the weekend. The chicken salad is really, really boring and the salad leafs take so damned long to chew that today I really couldn’t bring myself to actually eat them at all, so it was just chicken & coleslaw.
Worst of all, I’m sitting here writing this and watching Master Chef, it looks fantastic but I wouldn’t be able to eat any of it – nonetheless I really want something with some taste. Oh look, now they’re serving the puddings – that’s what I want – ALL OF IT 😦 Today my nutrition plan stinks and I am hating my diet and yeah, today it is a diet – full of restrictions and nothing nice!
Another problem is I’m already seeing the problems of tomorrow and the rest of the week. Tomorrow I have no lunch with me so we’ll probably have to stop at subway on the way home to have a salad. I’m meeting Simon at Micheal Wood services for dinner – what the heck can I eat at a service station – ridiculous meeting place, but I didn’t want to back track to Cribbs Causeway after I drop my colleague off at home. So, bad day coming up and I have to be up early in the morning for a 7 am flight to Belfast – another really poor day for food. Thankfully Friday will be OK. I’m out for lunch with a customer in London, that’ll be somewhere really nice, then I’m meeting another friend for dinner whilst I’m in London too – lots of really good tasty & healthy stuff on Friday.
I do have to find something better than I’m eating otherwise I’m going to slip off the wagon and eat rubbish just because I am bored with my menus! Thankfully I’m working within travelling distance to home for the next few weeks, so at least I can control food better then.
When I feel like this I can usually make myself feel better by going to the gym for a really hard workout. I can’t do that right now though, I can only go to the gym twice a week for 30 mins each session. I know he told me why and I perfectly understood at the time, but right now – I really don’t! Yeah, just received an email from himself reminding me that I’m not doing so well and not be an idiot and don’t eat sweet stuff. I won’t, I’m just having a whinge.
So, thank you for letting me just let off the steam, that makes me feel better and I can go to bed feeling somewhat repaired and ready to face another bland food day – that is mainly my fault, I will be scouring the interweb over the weekend to find some tasty dishes that I can eat at home and whilst at work during the day.
However…, if you have any ideas to tempt the taste buds back to life, please share using the comments below, even if they are heavy on the carbs or protein, I can modify them slightly to fit with my plan – just not sugary stuff though eh..
Well, time for a cup of tea before I go to bed – so good night, sleep well and we’ll catch up soon.
