This morning started in my regular lazy fashion with a cup of coffee and some cereal for breakfast while I finished yet another book (A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby). I am really loving this oatmeal squares. They were on sale at our grocery store and I had a coupon so I got a box and immediately went back for a second box after trying them out. They aren’t super sweet and actually keep me sustained for quite a while.
After finishing my book and lazing around for a while, I headed off the babysit. However, this is where my poor planning began. I left to go there at 11:30 (before lunch) and took nothing with me to eat leaving me to make enough sustenance from another person’s fridge (which I hate doing). That lead to a lunch consisting of a few pieces of cheese, wheat thins and a few peanut butter M&Ms.
After leaving there, I went to run a few errands, you know exciting stuff like the bank and getting dog food, donating old clothes/shoes/books. By the time I made it home I was actually starving. Turns out a few crackers and pieces of cheese don’t exactly cut it as lunch for this girl so I had a snack of granola and yogurt, major shocker.
After job searching for a bit and delving into a new book, I decided to get my run in. It was a lot cooler this evening after the past few nights of absolute scorchers. Upon arrival home, I realized not only had I completely failed at lunch, I wasn’t set up to do much better with dinner. I thought I had enough veggies and what not from the market last week to get up through to the weekend but I was quite mistaken. Luckily Casey whipped up some delicious turkey burgers and some sweet fries we have had on reserve in the freezer for god only knows how long.
Hope your day in food looked a little better than mine. Proper planning really does prevent poor performance, that is for sure.
