I had a busy day yesterday and had to drive to town for some appointments. This does not sound like a big deal, but getting in the car seems to be a trigger for my husband and I. I was pressed for time and did not have time to eat as well as I should have. But before we left, I took the time to make a green smoothie - spinach, banana and papaya. (So at least I got some nutrients)
I went for a 5k run before we left and when we got to town, I noticed my muscles were a bit sore - must not have gotten enough protein in that smoothie. We stopped at a Taco John's near the place we had an appointment. I opted for the refried beans with no sauce or cheese. It was tasty. My comment was that those beans were really good or else I was truly hungry. The soreness went away after that (Note to self: feed my body after a workout)
The appointments were finished and Hubby said he wanted a hamburger from Hardees. My daughter and niece went to Taco Johns. I was not too tempted because, to be honest, it just did not look very good. I did not really miss not getting anything from the fast food places. When they started eating there was this horrible smell in the car; it smelt like grease, onions and artificial food.
I have to admit that I was getting hungry. I need to put some gas in the car, so at the gas station when I saw the fruit display I decided to buy 2 apples (one for the ride home and one for later) 2 for $1.00. Who says it is too expensive to eat healthy?
It was easy to pass by those candy bars while holding to apples in my hand. It is all about choices. I made some good choices throughout the day, but then lossed it in the evening when I discovered 2 peanut buster bars in the freezer. Needless to say, they are no longer there.
Today is a new day with new choices to make.
