I forget how busy things can get at the beginning of the school year. I'm already looking forward to that time in the summer when we have no obligations. We had one girl at ballet today and then an hour before a parent meeting at the church. I took the kids to eat during that hour. They wanted hamburgers and I don't really like hamburgers, so I didn't eat. I figured I'd eat something a bit healthier once we got home. By the time we got home, bathed the kids and put themin bed. I was too tired to eat. I just didn't want anything but I looked at my tracker and knew that I HAD to have something.
I was just stuck in some mental place where nothing sounded good and everything seemed like too much work. After getting my daughter's lunch ready for tomorrow, I finally decided on tuna and crackers. It still didn't come close to my minimum calorie range for today, but at least I was feeling much better by the time I finished them off, so I decided to make a healthy dessert. I mixed up a cup of fat free cool whip and a tablespoon of unsweetened Hershey's cocoa powder. It was delicious and brought me to my minimum.
Most days I'm trying not to overdo it on calories, so days like today are really interesting. I much prefer having to eat more than having to eat less! ;)
