Planning saves lives!
Wednesday, April 03, 2013
Well, okay, that might be a little dramatic, but planning saved my day, at least!
I very carefully packed my lunch this morning, which was no easy feat. It was one of those "I don't feel like going to the store, what can I cobble together from the crisper drawer, pantry, and bread box?" kind of mornings. That was my morning: breakfast, dog walk, shower, dress, then off to work.
And then all heck broke loose! It was a *day*. Some of it I expected (meetings, a community presentation that I had to be "on" for) and some of it was senior managers sending semi-frantic emails about random things that were apparently all very important and urgent, Or something. Anyway.
My food! I just did my SP nutrition report, and it was near-perfect! I've been struggling all week with too many fats and not enough carbs, and somehow, today, everything was within 1% of the suggested totals! It's a small thing, probably, but I was so relieved and geeked-out about my pie chart matching their pie chart! I know SP includes all carbs as carbs, so nutritionally I may have been off, but I feel like today was a HUGE step in the right direction. Being able to intuitively eat sanely is one of my vague goals for this journey, and I feel like that's in my reach.
Of course, my nutty 13-hr day meant I just came home and Sparked; no evening walk for this kid today. Early to bed with a good book for me, then hopefully more goal-reaching tomorrow.
Have a great Wednesday, all!
