Ugh

My day started off well. I had two packages of the instant oatmeal again, and took a photo!

Here is the box, so you can see which one I am having.

Pretty soon after that, my day headed down the terrible path. The kind of day where you just want to bury your head in the sand (or hide under the covers). But you know if you do that, your problems will be one hundred times bigger when you resurface. I pretty much felt tense and nervous all day. And am still feeling that way.

But, along to lunch. I had a smoked salmon wrap, with a smear of avocado, lettuce, green pepper and cherry tomatoes. I also had plain yogurt with raspberries and a little honey. So tasty! I took a photo, but it was absolutely terrible. Sorry.

Now, on to my snack. I discovered Heather and Mark’s blog, Hangry Pants, and while reading it, came across this post. Heather was talking about snacking and her great readers were giving great advice. It’s something I’ve been thinking about lately. If I am running or going to spinning after work, I will sometimes have a snack (banana or something) mid-afternoon. Then I might have something when I get home. If I’m not working out, I will come home and eat, eat, eat, pretty much. If I’m in the apartment after work and before dinner, I just can’t help myself. A great tip that I saw from one of the comments was to leave your snack out so when you’re home, it’s right there. Pre-portioned. I think that’s a really good idea! I didn’t really practice this today, but I do intend to start doing that. Today, I had a banana around 3:15, then this snack when I got home…

That’s Trader Joe’s Simply Almonds, Cashews and Cranberries Trail Mix. Graham and I are going out for a run soon, so that’s enough for now.

I’ll be back after dinner… see you then!

  1. So cool that you found my blog! I will definitely be reading the future.

    So, I’ve still been working on the snacking, too, but something that helped me was to have my snack in the car on the way home from work. I hate doing it because I don’t want to eat in the car, but it works for me now. Let me know how setting out the snack works.
