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
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 :-\
