It doesn't look like I ate that much but I don't feel like I did to well.  It was such a hectic day and I really didn't have time to fix lunch or dinner so we depended on fast food.  I had to take my son to a hospital a couple hours away so I stopped and got my kids breakfast on the way well of course they didn't want all of their hashbrowns and so I ended up eating some of them because I hate wasting food, something I need to get over.  Then it took longer at the hospital then it should have so I stopped and got us lunch on the way home at Burger King, at least I had them leave the mayo off.  I still had errands to run and a house to clean and the kids start school tomorrow so I had to get all of their stuff ready and I had open house at one of my kids schools so I just picked up a pizza to make dinner easy.  I am proud of myself though because normally I can easily eat 5 or 6 pieces of pizza and I only ate 2.  So overall it wasn't a terrific day but I did manage to make good decisions in the face of eating poorly.

As for my exercise I really didn't have time to but I did squeeze in 20 minutes of walking only because I didn't exercise yesterday.


  1. Every little change we make counts big in the long run. Baby steps. (And sometimes it feels like ant steps.) My cousin once told me about a saying she read: "Two steps forward and one step backward will still get you toward your goal." Or something like that. That has really stuck with me. We just have to keep trying to move forward.

  2. Other than the lack of vegetables, it doesn't seem all that bad. I find that having some roasted meat or hard boiled eggs in the fridge at all times along with some veggies helps incredibly on busy days. I can make a meal out of them in no time and don't get tempted to eat something off plan.

  3. Looks like you made good choices with what you were working with...

  4. Wendy you are absolutely right, to many times I have let things throw me in a downward spiral and I'm determined this time that if I just keep chugging along I'll make it where I'm wanting to go. Floriana you always have good tips, I should have planned ahead because I knew this week was going to be super busy, a lesson learned. Hi Lisa and welcome to my blog I will be checking out your blog as soon as I get a chance.
