Sonoma Diet: The Boss Is In Town With The Corporate Card

Submitted by Richat35 Health... on Tue, 08/22/2006 - 8:18pm.

    My team leader's new boss was in town today for an intro meeting with our team.  These types of meetings are always critical to have your i's dotted (Go Buckeyes) and your t's crossed.  One thing that is certain with any meeting like this is that our team leader will be taking us all out to a nice dinner (and drinks) to build some team unity.  These events are fun, but not the type where you can be the only guy on the team saying "well, I would have the filet mignon and the $100 bottle of wine, but I am in Wave 1 of my Sonoma Diet." 

    With this in mind, I have planned to eat a light breakfast of 1 package of instant oatmeal.  I was going to have a light snack and then a whole wheat turkey sandwich for lunch.  This plan got shot down when my team leader asked me to come to lunch with him and two other team members from our branch office.  My lunch ended up being texas style barbeque beef and turkey, with a ceasar salad (no croutons) and cole slaw on the side.  I avoided bread and went light on the sauce for the meat since it's probably loaded with sugar to make it have that sweet taste.  I skipped desert and had water with my meal to keep me fresh.  Overall, I would say my performance went pretty well. 

Check in later to see how I did at dinner.
