Day 5- Cruise Control is my Friend
Saturday, October 22, 2011
Day 5 of my week long nutrition tracking challenge. Day went ok but became a whirlwind of rushing around so...treated myself to a dd's coffee with 2 creams and splenda...I didnt have a breakfast so on the road for an hour I grabbed 2 grilled chicken snack wraps at mcd's which I try not to do but figured better to eat and it was at least fairly healthy for me. played some guitar at a hospital for a special care nursery reunion. my son was here 11 yrs ago. very fun. had a coffee with 2 half and halfs.
after the gig i was headed an hour north and was in a rush to get to my sons hockey game, so I was not gonna eat but...I thought better to keep my energy up so...yah...2 more grilled chicken snack wraps....
after the game the team went out for dinner...pizza. I had 3 slices of cheese/pesto and tomato pizza...with plenty of water...not the worst...black coffee for the ride home. hopefully my fat content was not too bad today. I'll find out when I log it in.
on the way home I got separated from my wife and kids ahead of me on the highway while following behind...decided to race to catch up...got pulled over...officer was very nice...and appreciated my story...wife called me while he was talking to me so I guess that helped...I don't drink so he liked that and let me off with a warning but said to be careful, since it would have been a $300 ticket...
so, I like to think things happen for a reason sometimes and luckily this one was a good one. put it in cruise control for the way home, and giving me a reminder that organization and focus are important in all aspects of my travels. I don't feel like the day was out of control, but I was driving fast a lot of the day and glad I was told to slow it down.
and here's a photo of my son when he was at that special care nursery 11 years ago.
