Bad Eating Day - but not what you think...

Today was a horrible eating day, but not because I ate too much. I ate way too little and besides some spinach in my breakfast, I didn't get any fruits and veggies in.

We left the cabin today. I ended up making a late breakfast of Eggs Florentine while packing and we left around lunchtime. The rest of the fam snacked in the car, but I didn't and really didn't feel hungry.

There was a lot going on when we got home because the kiddos hadn't seen their dad in a week. I immediately got to work clipping coupons so I could stock up after a week gone. I would have waited but we were out of formula, and guess who brought her Target receipt from over $100 to $60 and managed to come home with 8 things of formula (2 tubs, 4 pre-mixed, and 2 6 packs), diapers (2), deodorant (3), and feminine products (6)? Oh yeah!

It was so nice out when I got home that I decided to get the fam out for a walk before bed. We did a quick loop around the neighborhood. When we got back I realized I hadn't eaten a thing since breakfast. I was then busy with getting the little ones ready for bed so I popped a leftover half turkey burger into the toaster oven and shoved it down before jumping in the shower.

While I was at the cabin, I realized that drinking some soy milk before bed really cut down on my nighttime snacking. I had some coupons for Almond Milk, so I picked some up for $1! I couldn't wait to try it out so I had a glass and later I had some chocolate animal crackers.

Here's the evidence of my nutritionally lacking day. I'll try better tomorrow.

Today aside, I'm so happy with my eating and activity lately. I was even able to take part in our fish fry last night! Mmmm... I can't resist some fresh-caught fried walleye. I didn't know how to track it, but came up with battered, fried walleye and found I could have way more than I thought! We bread of fish lightly not batter, so I'm sure I was we'll within my calories.

Ok, I got way too into that fish fry... Let's talk about running. Here I was all excited about C25K Week 5 because it went so well the first day and the second day was different! What the heck happened to three days of consistency? Well, at least I can report that I made it through 8min running, 5 minutes walking, and 8 more minutes of running!

Last thing to mention - guess who has entered ONEderland!?! This lady!
