one of the higher-ups was taking people out for mexican today in honor of cinco de mayo

i'm currently on a strict cut, and so i had to decline. this elicited some strange looks and comments from my co-workers, but whateva.

i never thought i would turn down free mexican food.

now i'm sitting here at lunch having a protein shake. :cry:

Why not go and have chicken fajitas and don't eat the tortilla wraps?

Life involves more then looking good man & 1 semi-cheat meal would not kill you.... + it's a great career oppertunity they see you in a social environment and see how you interact with others...

its just a meal don't feel so bad. You should invite them to have a protein shake and they can say no thx and go feel bad for not taking the healthier choice=D just go all out on saturday, you can't go back and change it so might as well forget about and move on. Good Luck maybe it wasn't so good and you didn't miss out much.

i agree with 8ball and that it'd have been a good opportunity with the higher-ups... how many such chances do you get? you can choose the healthiest food and burn the cheat/semi-cheat food off later. 1 meal's not gonna kill ya :P

If there is one thing my short existence on this planet has taught me, its that you should always cave to peer pressure. ;)

I agree. It shouldnt be about "life being about looking good" or having one cheat meal. It's about making a decision and sticking with it. It's about the title of the thread. You decide to do something, you say your going to do something. . do it, regardless of the surroundings.

Nice, one more thing Mr. Berardi has written that I dislike.
Also, you completely missed the main point of the thread. No one commented negatively on his bosses for their poor eating habits. And no one said "wow were so badass cuz we eat better than those schmucks" We congratulated a man who stuck to his goals instead of caving the first time an obstacle came in his path.

Like said before, even if you go and just have a piece of chicken and a water, its still good to get out and socialize with the top dawgs. You dont HAVE to eat a ton of greasy mexican, and im sure they might have something healthy on the menu.

He already stated he has eaten with these people every day in the past and has no need to continue to lick the "top dawgs" balls. So why is it always "good to get out and socialize with the top dawgs" may I ask.

i didn't say anyone gave negative comments about his bosses or colleagues or said that.

making a decision and sticking to it is more important to you. leeway with a meal once in a while for socialising since one can make up for it later is more important to me.

different people have different priorities, so let's just leave it at that.

I think it was probably harder listening to them tease you for not eating because your on some "diet" then it was actually avoiding the food. I always get it from my friends.. LOL.

It's nice though being a personal trainer that when lunch time comes around people actually say... whatcha got? I'am like eggs, turkey sandwhich.. They are like nice! hahah.
