The Moving Story Part II
Confession time: I ate a TON of crappy food today, and it was totally avoidable if I had done a little planning. This morning my mom and I left to drive three hours up to my old house to give it a good deep clean. Then we drove back all in one day, in the pouring rain. again. It was a very long day on the road (6 hours! I drove all of it!) and I didn’t prepare for food and snacks. I DID bring a small cooler for bottled waters and a couple of breakfast bars…..but that’s as far as it went. Keep in mind I am TOTALLY embarrassed to admit this, but this is what I ate today.
1 cup of coffee with hazelnut creamer
1 breakfast bar
2 Taco Bell tacos and an order of nachos with a coke
a double cheeseburger and fries and a coke icee from Burger King
a small Dairy Queen butterfingers blizzard
a mini cupcake
2 bites of chicken ravioli
a bottle of water.
Oh. my. gosh. I think I am going to be sick. I am so embarrassed!!!! How did this happen? Well, I will TELL you how. I chose to NOT be prepared for a long car trip. I would have let myself have one fast food meal, but two? and a blizzard? with cupcakes?!? Way over my limit. I am angry at myself for allowing this to happen. I KNOW better than this. I could have brought healthy snacks to eat in between my one fast food meal like:
an apple or grapes
and I could have chosen to stop somewhere like Subway instead of Taco Bell. I was so worried about remembering all of my cleaning supplies this morning I didn’t even think about food. Please don’t make the same mistake I did. Think ahead when you are going on a long car trip and bring snacks accordingly!
Although I had an eating fiasco today, we DID spend three solid hours cleaning the house and it looks great!
Tomorrow my goals are as follows
1.) Go get groceries
2.) Go for a run
3.) Eat healthy!!!
QOTD: What healthy snacks do you bring with you when you travel?
