How I feel today:
I absolutely did not bring enough to snack on. I had class at 11am and had to stay at the gym until 2:30 or so for a meeting with my trainer. Therefore, I had to split the meal I had planned for 11am in half. I had half at 11am, before class, and at about 1pm, I had the other half. This was not enough at all. By the time 4pm came, I was FAMISHED! The meeting was over by 2:30pm but I could not go home immediately because I needed to get a few things at the grocery store. I am glad I was determined to get what I needed and go home because everybody knows you are not supposed to go grocery shopping when you are hungry!

At the store I bought lettuce, green peppers, navel oranges, blueberries, avocado, spinach, organic, sugar-free salsa, corn tortillas, frozen tri-color peppers, egg whites, and zone bars. I'm preparing for next week. One thing I forgot was sweet potatoes. I think I will make baked sweet potato fries with cinnamon next week.

Beyond not bringing enough to eat, my day went very well. Though I was hungry, I did not succumb to eating out or filling my grocery basket with junk. Yay me! :)
