That was harder than I thought.

Eating out, that is.
I have not eaten out since starting my spark journey almost 4 weeks ago. I have carefully meal planned and packed lunches and eaten before going to potlucks. I am a woman on a mission.
Today I made a flying trip out of town to visit a relative in the hospital. It has been a stressful week, with two loved ones inpatient. I was talking & texting with my sister (with one relative) while tending to the other. I forgot to eat breakfast but did find an apple in my car to crunch during the drive.
By noon I was famished. I went to an asian place I love and avoided the fried stuff, choosing a bowl of soup. Wonton soup. How bad could it be?
540 calories of bad.
And I was still hungry since I missed breakfast. So I did ALOT of snacking the rest of the day because I felt 1) stressed 2) entitled and 3) distracted.
By some miracle I stayed in my range of calories, but I think I forgot a few things I ate so that could be wrong.
Need to slow down and remember to take care of myself even when I need to take care of others.
Good lesson for the day.
