Busy, busy work day today, which is why I’m so late today. I didn’t get my food in line just right today, but everything worked out.
I bought Trader Joe’s Rosemary Apricot Chicken Salad, but didn’t have time run it through the food processor to make it smooth as I like it. I opted for cottage cheese. I was running late, and didn’t get to make my coffee, so I planned to get some when I stopped at 7-Eleven to get sunflower seeds, so I stopped at 7-Eleven, because convenience stores always have sunflower seeds. Except the one near home, apparently. Not wanting to have only bacon on my cottage cheese, I picked up praline pecans. Then I fixed up a coffee with steamed milk and amaretto creamer. Just before I checked out, the clerk found sunflower seeds. Score.
I finished my protein shake on the way to work. I have to admit I’m getting tired of the shake. I do like getting 50g of protein. Maybe next time I’ll buy vanilla, which will be easier to flavor with my Torani sugar-free syrups. I could go for a nice pumpkin spice right now.
I was too busy to get my lunch at lunchtime, so I munched on the praline pecans. Then I looked at the label—23g of fat—yikes! Mindless eating that got me in trouble in the first place.
Lunch seemed particularly satisfying with all the protein. It held me well for the long afternoon that stretched beyond my usual quitting time. I grabbed my string cheese for the drive home. I stopped at Starbucks for a mocha, and it was really hard to turn down the cake pops, but I did.
Dinner ended up being pistachios because I was just too tired to make anything. Today wasn’t a great day for eating, but I know it will get better tomorrow. I had plenty of opportunities to go off the rails and at least I avoided them—except for those damn praline pecans.
See you tomorrow.
