Had a good day in terms of the Pantry Challenge, but a lousy day in terms of eating properly. And the two should definitely not be mutually exclusive!
The day got off to a bad start when I got up at 2 am and had a couple of hard-boiled eggs with mayo before heading out to the Homeless Shelter to work. (Of course, just getting up at that time gets the day off to a bad start, though being able to get up at that or any other hour, and doing it in my own home instead of the homeless shelter or on the streets makes it good start!) I have found that when the day starts out off kilter food-wise, I tend to stay off kilter all day. A few bites of sweet roll and a couple of mini candy bars at the shelter, then a bad case of munchies for the rest of the day. I don't even remember what all I ate. Lettuce with peanut butter for lunch, with a carrot. Coconut flour pancakes with lots of butter and peanut butter for supper, after leftover (from the freezer) Sausage and Squash Casserole. Herbal tea with splenda and coconut milk. Individual foods weren't bad (after the cinnamon roll and candy), but I ate most of the day and definitely had a bad attitude about food.
