EPIC DIET FAIL

food and nutrition

Yesterday, I bought “Wii Fit” (a balance board + training CD). I decided I was really committed to exercise more and eat right. Today, unfortunately, I missed breakfast due to a dentist appointment and came into work late.  I grabbed a pack of cashews… not too bad.

And that’s when it happened.  Charles walked by my desk.

Cafe 150?” he suggested.
“I just ate a bit ago, but thanks.  I’ll grab lunch later.”
“Seared ahi tuna!” he added, temptingly.
(Hmm, I thought to myself, that sounds pretty healthy).
“And prime rib.  And buffalo wings!”
Oh boy.  Maybe I’ll go and just eat the tuna.

I did, but I didn’t.  What I did have was this:

– Chef salad
– Seared ahi tuna with wasabi crème fraiche
– Prime rib with horseradish cream
– Rice pilaf with almonds, onions, carrots, and peas
– Steam spring veggies with butter and parsley
– Saffron rice

One of the chefs was walking by and kindly pointed out an intriguing big brown vat.  This, then, led me to

– Chocolate-peanut-butter-milk

Right next to it was the dessert table.  Being the disciplined guy that I am, I just grabbed one… to go, even.  Which resulted in my procurement of

– Apricot Caramel bread pudding
with blackberries, condensed milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice; served with chocolate cream cheese

With some off-the-napkin calculations, I believe it would take approximately 42 hours of intensive aerobics with the Wii Fit to burn the calories I’ve just consumed.

This, I think, could be classified as EPIC DIET FAIL :-\

    I also got Wii Fit, bit no good, I am still spilling out. Think I’m gonna try some swimming. I have heard that is the best way to beat the flab.
