Good morning everyone 🙂 We’re about to head out for our “mystery trip” in a few minutes, but I thought I’d give you a quick recap of yesterday’s not.at.all.healthy eats!
Last time we talked, I told y’all about the smoothie I made yesterday morning. About half way through, I decided that I wasn’t enjoying it nearly as much as one should enjoy food, so I threw the rest of it out. To my delight, though, I found some pumpkin yogurt I brought the day before and hadn’t eaten!This was a site for sore eyes for sure. There’s 1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt, 1/2 cup pumpkin puree, 1 packet of Truvia, 1/2 tsp of vanilla, and obscene amounts of cinnamon. This was just what I needed as a recovery from the smoothie!
Lunch was some leftover meatballs from our $10 lunch for two, with some string cheese on top and a slice of whole wheat bread with a slice of mozzarella. ‘Twas delish!
And (gasp!!!) a Vanilla Coke Zero. I love diet drinks. There, I said it. I don’t feel like I indulge in this too often, but sometimes the only thing in the world that sounds good is an ice cold Diet Coke!
Halfway through the afternoon someone unloaded a bag ‘o’ candy right behind my desk, so I snagged a raspberry Tootsie Roll pop. The dogs are super faded right behind it; I think they thought it was a treat for them!
And then (HUGE sigh) I realized that I forgot my workout clothes. MAJOR FAIL. What I thought was a pair of pants in the dryer that morning was apparently one of Nate’s golf shirts, and we didn’t have anything else to change into. I didn’t wear shoes that were conducive to walking a long distance, so I decided to hit up Home Depot, Marshall’s, and Whole Foods on the lunch break. AND I got a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger from Wendy’s…which totally made my stomach upset the rest of the day. What a bummer!
We got home and started doing laundry and packing, when we realized that we hadn’t eaten dinner yet. With no food in the house and nothing but fast food places close by, we decided on pizza from Papa Murpheys. Here’s a shot of the garlic bread:
To be quite honest, I’m really having to fight off the horrible feelings I’m having from eating so much junk yesterday. I know today’s a new day and whatnot, but I still feel like I overdid it. My biggest struggle this weekend is going to be eating healthful and sensible portions (and being satisfied with them) on our trip. I’ve asked Nate to help me with this, but if y’all could send healthy eating thoughts my way, it’d be much appreciated 🙂
I’ll be back later with some clues as to where we are, but in the meantime: Do YOU have any helpful travel eating tips? I’d love to hear them all, so I can pick up the phone and read your comments before I bury my face in some decadent Southern food (hint #1) 🙂
