The 24th of July started out with, once again, my favorite quick breakfast: half of a Portuguese muffin, smeared with half a tablespoon of peanut butter, covered with sliced banana and then drizzled with honey and sprinkled heavily with cinnamon. I only ate half, Chris got the other half. 🙂
Side Note: The sky in the morning was very pretty. Proof:
I had stopped at the bank to get some money out of the ATM and had to stop for an extra minutes to snap a quick picture and just admire. 🙂
At work at around 8-ish (I get into work at 6am) there was a snack of a Sargento Colby-Jack cheese stick and a handful (about a quarter cup) of mixed nuts.
At around 12-ish there was a 15 minute lunch break, purchased at work. Not being a big fan of bread I pulled off half the bread on each sandwich half.
I keep on saying I want to stop purchasing food at work, and now and then I succeed. Not only would it save me
from giving back all my paycheck to those who gave it to me money, but I wouldn’t have to wonder about all the extras in the food I’m eating. So far, I am pretty much failing at clean eating.
After work, another fail. It was hot and I was weak and really really craving soft serve ice cream something awful. I got a small sized cup of soft serve vanilla, topped with strawberry.
For the record, it absolutely hit the spot and was delicious.
Got to Chris’, hung around a little and then headed back out with camera in hand. You see, there’s this little field of sunflowers beside the road. I did take a bunch of pictures, which will show up on Tuesday’s photography-related post, but for now have a teaser.
I really do like the pictures I took yesterday…but the more I look at them the more I see things that I can work on fixing…but that’s a tale for Tuesday!
A margarita pie from a local favorite pizzeria. The good news is…I was very good and only had one slice. The bad news is is that it was still pizza and something I really wish I could say ‘No, thank you.’ too.
And the last fail? Again with the no exercise.
We were going to go for our usual jog…but a nice sized black bear hanging around the end of the driveway stopped that plan. We could have done the exercise video…but…well…no excuse. We just didn’t.
We are awful fitness wanna-be’s.
So, how did my day look according to my Fitbit?
