I drank the rest of the refrigerator blueberry smoothie at o'dark hundred and then threw a couple oat muffins in with my packed lunch to munch when I arrived. For lunch, there would be an Almond butter sandwich, cucumbers, an apple, and almonds and cranberries for a mid-afternoon snack (AlpsSnack, unfortunately, went out of business with the death of its founder so this is my last one, seriously best nut/fruit bar ever).
Unfortunately, from early morning until after 2:00 I was tied up with something very important and there was NO break to grab a snack. When I was clear, I was SO happy I had a nutritious lunch with whole grains waiting.
Too bad I didn't eat it.
I had opened it up and was huffing the almonds and cranberries when one of the people I was in the meeting with said "Potbellies" and the next thing you know I'm eating a hot turkey sandwich with cheese and mayo on a toasted bun that's to die for. And a cookie. This is what my midsection is going to look like tomorrow.
Sure there were "veggies" on it if iceberg lettuce counts.
OK - I'll add more fruit this afternoon.
We all have setbacks. We simply make better choices the next meal, rather than writing the whole day off. I'll eat the fruit and veggies in my packed lunch for supper and eat the sandwich for breakfast
Total: Breakfast 340 Snacks (fruit, nuts, single piece of candy) 365 Lunch - don't ask Dinner 130 Calories - over 2000. Not awful, but not good and there was WAY too much saturated fat.
Steps: 4700 but I'll do another walk before it gets dark.
Lesson learned - before an activity that has the potential to delay a meal, eat some protein, a piece of jerky, a protein bar, SOMETHING.
