Today started with something round and covered in chocolate and that's never a sign of a day of good food choices.  But it was the retirement of a colleague and when he offered it I couldn't say no, for many reasons.  But after eating healthy home cooked food most of the last two weeks it laid in my stomach like a piece of heavy shop equipment.  Funny, two weeks ago, I'd have eaten two of them without blinking.

Lunch was a packed sandwich.  A small tortilla filled with Greek spiced ground turkey, cucumbers and yogurt sauce. It was really tasty and much better than my former fast food lunches.  I paired it with some carrot and celery sticks and an orange for dessert. And since, I didn't use my whole lunch break to drive somewhere to eat, I was able to take a short brisk walk around our building a few times.

Afternoon snack was a baggie of cut up raw veggies and two Keebler fudge striped cookies.

Dinner was a large romaine and kale salad topped with half a package of albacore tuna, more cucumbers and  a couple of sliced black olives in vinaigrette and six ounces of red wine.

Steps were 6180 -  my best all week.
I think that counteracted the donut. Healthy eating will esume on Sunday. I have to load up my truck after a 11 hour day tomorrow to leave at first light for another run north to Chicago with my crash pad things. With the detour on I-65, a three and a half hour drive is now five and a half to six hours. There will be a couple packed cheese sandwiches, carrots and apples and pirates booty  and Kibble for Abby and I (in case we're stuck in traffic and need emergency food). Cheers!

    Hey, you need energy for that shifting homes stuff... no mucking around, that is serious fuel time. I'm not saying go crazy - but definitely ensure the protein! Drive safe.

Thanks for visiting. Having been fortunate enough not to have to diet as a young woman - hitting middle age to find my Metabolism moved to Aruba and didn't even send a postcard was a rude awakening.
