Wow..this was a long day. We went in to work at 5 am to try to get some work done before it got too busy. Oh, did I mention, this was my day off? But I told my boss I’d come in for a few hours. I had to cancel my hair appointment that I had scheduled for 10 this morning, but I was able to do some of the things I needed to do this afternoon. I left work at around 11:30, so it still felt like I had the day off…well, except for that getting up in the middle of the night thing… I was able to finish what I went in to do though, so one task complete, a million more to go…
I managed to eat pretty well today and walked, biked, did lower body strength training and stretching. I stopped at the grocery store after I finished everything else and picked up some healthy food…spinach, peaches, sweet potatoes, cottage cheese (I think I’m on a cottage cheese kick right now), skim milk, whole wheat bagel thins, popcorn, turkey chili (with the cooler temps, I thought chili sounded good) and some Crystal Light raspberry green tea on the go things…little individual packets that you mix with water…pretty good. I thought that would be a good alternative to diet Pepsi or other drinks at work.
I couldn’t believe it, today it only got up to about 64 degrees after nearly 100 on Saturday…crazy! One thing about colder weather, I like making soup. I make a pretty good vegetable soup in the crock pot…oh, and a minestrone that is delish. Something to think about in the next few days.
Do you change how you eat when fall arrives?
