Yesterday started out so well. Except for the walking, that is – I made the mistake of going outside to walk in 50 degree damp weather, and regretted it the rest of the day. The bronchitis is not fully gone, after all, and I was reminded of that. Still, walking yesterday was an experiment to see if I was ready. I am not defeated!
But I digress. Yesterday started out well. I ate the meals I packed, and felt pretty good. The problem I ran into was that my son had a dentist appointment at 4 pm – which you might recognize as “the time Rich plans to make dinner”. So I was really hungry by the time we left the dentist. Combine that with my son declaring that he “really had to go to the bathroom”, and I had minimal willpower left when we stopped at a fast food restaurant to let him relieve himself. So, when my hungry son asked if we could get a snack, we got a snack. A fairly high-calorie snack, it turned out.
Overall, though, things could have been a whole lot worse. I ate 2,733 calories out of a 2,500 calorie budget. So I went over, but not as badly as I might have. Call it a consolation prize, I guess.
