So today I knew I couldn't bring food, so I would go out for a healthy lunch.
What I didn't know, was that during our morning
So after I drop the kids, I have to run to
By the time I got home, I had to jump into the shower, because I knew I was going to be called any second by the plumber telling me he is on his way...Sure enough, he calls right as I am on the rinse cycle.
I throw on some clothes, run downstairs and make a chocolate/banana shake, and I am out the door.
Luckily my husband made me some lemon water before I even crawled out of bed, because that is a must first thing every day!
I get to the condo and all is good...I am dressed for the Tundra (remember, no heat - AND the windows had to be opened today because of the smoke from soldering) and I am working along...I am BUSY! So busy all of a sudden it was well past lunch time! I go out and try to figure out what is my best option. I decide on Chipotle because they are the easiest to get a healthy meal. No really! I got a brown rice bowl, with black beans, steak, lettuce, mild and medium salsa, and guacamole! No cheese, no chips, and no sour cream.
Later today I decided the plumber and I need a coffee! He was super happy, so I went out and got us some Starbucks. My super lovely tenant (no really she is the best!) left a cute little box of chocolate for me because I sat there all day. I decided to share them with the plumber (I don't want to use his name, but he is a great guy, I don't mean to call him "the plumber" in a negative way at all) and he was again super happy. I offered to bring him lunch by the way, but he said No because it will make him lazy.....I can totally relate! ;)
I had my protein bar with my coffee in an effort to not eat the chocolate. Besides, I needed to share with the kids and my husband as well. I was so busy again today that I barely noticed if I was hungry or not.
I got home and made a nice gluten-free pasta with sauteed onions, garlic, tomatoes, and eggplant. Yum!
I had a protein bar after dinner with a cup of detox tea. My protein bars are small by the way, about 1/4 the size of a balance bar.
I do not do portion control, I have never been good at that. I don't count, measure, obsess. I get a list of foods I can eat, and I stick with it. I will be back on a regular schedule tomorrow and you will see a typical day for me...This has been anything but typical, but hey, that's life, right?!
From here on out I plan to have a list at the top of what I ate, and how I am feeling, the last 2 days were just too wacky for that :)
Have a good night!
