So last night at about 8:30 pm I was starting to get hungry (again). I was fighting it - trying to figure out WHAT I could eat that was low calorie and fill me up. I ended up eating an apple. That is the first time I EVER had an apple in the evening. I was still hungry (probably should have waited the 20 minutes, but didn't) so then I had 2 cheese sticks. WHAT A GREAT LITTLE SNACK!
I have read about having an apple and cheese for a snack before, but didn't think they really went together. It's amazing how you try to get creative with your eating and you hit something that is just wonderful!
Anyone have any other combo snacks that you didn't think would work, but then were great together?

All vacation, I was worried about gaining weight - I didn't do too bad - I went up a pound, but I'm ok with that.
Now, back into the swing. I have one week before I get my blood work done again for the cholesterol check - not sure if I'll get to 160 by then, but I'll try.
While we were gone, I got a message from the OBGYN that I need to do a fasting blood test for them for the hormone blood work - GREAT! Obviously something came back on the original test that was done mid-day. I'll be going in on Thursday for that.
We did a LOT of walking with geocaching while on vacation. Somedays more than other.
Back to reality.......

I mentioned yesterday that "golden child" at work is probably going to another office and the 3 (out of 4) of us in the office will be filling in. Today in our staff meeting, it was mentioned that the plan is my position will become a hybrid position and do both duties. GREAT! MORE WORK!
The first thing I thought of was "how am I going to manage all of this?" I'm not motivated as it is (sometime) and sometimes feel out of control/not knowing what to do next.
I've read "Getting Things Done" by David Allen, but haven't really put it in action. I've been looking at different blogs that people write on their organization based on GTD.
So, I'm taking a few minutes (OK - maybe hours) and creating a tickler file and just "organize". Hopefully, it will make me feel better.
Tonight hubby and I are going to a Geocaching event. Of course the first thing hubby asks "what are we doing for dinner?" I'm so trying to stay on track, so I said to him, I don't eat that much in the evening, so why don't you just bring me a peanut butter sandwich. He was ok with that answer. He's picking me up from work and we are heading right there and it won't be over until 8 pm. I know what he was thinking - Chipotle. I dodged that bullet! I really want to focus during vacation and get the walking in and watch what I eat. I won't be able to weigh myself the whole time I'm there - I want to come back less that what I left at!
I won't have internet (except for the phone), so the plan is just writing everything down that I eat and walk plus keep the pedometer on for geocaching.
I'm so ready......
