My Realtor friends at the all you can eat horse troughs

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker

A day seldom goes by that I do not see one of my fellow Realtor friends. Some where in the conversation it comes up that perhaps we go and eat somewhere.

Those that know me know that I am not one for eating garbage food, or fast food. I would rather have some quality food verse quantity. I do have a hard time getting that animal pack of vitamins down each day. Living in a World of convenience can be difficult at times, and it gets easier everyday to eat wrong.

The general consensus is many of my friends have got caught up in convenience rather than pack a lunch. I for one think it would get pretty expensive eating out twice a day like some of them do.

Besides, sometimes time can be such a precious commodity.

My friends, well they tell me they like to go to the all you can eat horse troughs. You know the places that have several thousand types of food; mostly desserts. Great for blood sugar problems. Old Country buffets, Chinese buffets, buffets of this, buffets of that, and more buffets......

  Perhaps it stems from not to long ago when I ate for convenience at a local national franchise. It took about 5 minutes before I could feel that the food was not sitting right. I thought to myself " I wonder if these people feel bad feeding me this kind of food?" The truth is I felt like McCrap all day.

Now I have the ability to ask my friends to at least walk somewhere to eat. This way it may offset things. Surprisingly enough some had said that they were going to eat more sensibly. Music to my ears I thought. My friends will live longer, and besides, twenty or thirty years ago it was never a problem; now I even think of the stuff and I put on two pounds. It's nice to see past and present individuals I do business with being more aware of their health. I meet some great inspirations each day. The smile that comes across someone's face that has made a change in their life can not be ignored. It rubs off, and makes you feel good.

Hats off to my Real Estate friends for making a conciese decision. I am proud of you for taking care of yourselves, and it is never too late for change, or working out.

Just started taking lunches to the office again, sometimes find myself eating in the car, but that's our business always on the go.  It didn't take a second thought after looking at my investment statement to figure out I was spending too much on restaurant food.  Taking a lunch is likely saving e $100 per week.

Not to mention the pounds I should shed, after all, my doctor told me I was exactly the right weight for a guy 10 ft 3 inches tall .

The food at your home was fantastic! That is what good food is all about.

I don't take a good picture? I don't think I ever have.

It is so hard in Real Estate to take time to eat right, now with slower times, it might be possible to set a new rule... eat fresh and organic when possible.

Tom - I don't like the all-you-can-eat places, because I always feel like I have to stuff myself to get my money's worth...  :)

The thought of not being able to see my feet frightens me. I hate getting stuffed too.

All my best!

You sure got my attention with that title!  So glad we don't many temptations like that around where I live.  The only trough I can find is the real thing - not too tempting.

Great blog - I have started thinking this way of late, and I can't tell you how much better I feel when I eat properly. 

Side note: You should post this in the AR Fit Club group as well.

Hi Tom, All-you-can-eat buffets should be outlawed.  I do not like these places.  Have you ever noticed that the people you see going in and out of them look like they need to lose 100 pounds. No offense intended to people who need to lose 100 pounds.  I need to lose a few myself. :-)
