For those who learn from other people's mistakes, always plan for "quick trips" to take longer than you thought. We went to pick up a canoe from my parents and 1) I didn't take my insulin which was just DENIAL because I knew we would be there at lunch and 2) take foods with you. I knew my parents are vegan and didn't think that the meal would have less protein than I needed. But I should have planned it better. Sometimes I think that I self sabotage on a subconcious level
On the other hand I had a nice time visiting with mom. She is the epitime of gracious southern lady of the Melanie Wilkes variety. Honest and true to herself, she is so gentile in the best way. I wish sometimes I could be more like her but alas, I am what I am..,..not quite as self absorbed as Scarlett but I have my moments.
Needless to say, with road food for dinner because of the delay, I didn't make my caloric/nutritional goal for the day. I will start again today to try to make a week of making my goals.
