This morning at the hotel I got stuck in the kitchen. Not literally, I mean there were no bells and whistles from the fire department, or a big can of crisco. We were busy, so with my Food & Beverage background, I usually end up in the kitchen cooking away. But wait everyone knows how hard it is to cook, and not eat while you cook. The old Kitchen phrase is "don't trust a skinny chef". Well I had to cook the bacon, sausage, ham, cut fruits, and make pastries. Wow all things I like, okay I love!!!! Well I can't say that I didn't have a slice of bacon or a sausage, because I did. I also did have lots of fruit. This time around I measured and made myself account for what I put in my mouth. This way yes I did have bacon and sausage, but in the past I probably would have had a 1/4 to a 1/2lb bacon (which is only like 4-10 slices).
Then when I got back to my office, I just plugged it into my counter to ensure that I made myself accountable for everything I put in my mouth. It can be tough to do this, but it is the only way to make yourself accountable.
After getting stuck in the Kitchen for 2 hours, it didn't turn out that bad. A few extra points that I would have preferred not to have eaten, but it is too late to change my mind.
