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!

    Hey, you are handling the food learning curve really well. I go through episodes of being freaked by details, then episodes of casting it all to the winds. All or none, I guess. Know how to chose wisely can become intuitive. It takes a lot of practice and mindfulness (which I have NOT mastered, by the by). Crazy days will always be waiting for us around the corner of every week. Just gotta be resilient. You hang in there and keep Sparking!
