I had to work late tonight and I didn’t get home until nearly seven. I survived off the almonds and an apple I had stashed in my desk. I was literally starving by the time I came home. I was not expecting to work so late, so I was completely unprepared. As my co-worker went to the vending machine I resolved it was better to stay hungry than eat a bag of chips or packaged doughnuts. I am not one who advocates skipping meals at all, but I didn’t see I had much of a choice. I kept telling myself the almonds and apple gave my body the fuel it needed and I just needed to be strong until I could get home.
Lesson for the day: Prepare for the unexpected. I now have several ¼ c. raw almond baggies and two paleo bars in my desk drawer.
When I got home, I went to the fridge and scrambled some egg whites with mushrooms and tomatoes and green onion. It was very quick to prepare and very filling. I devoured it!
I am exhausted and going to hit the sack. Big fitness day tomorrow!

I did not work out today, so it looks like I am trading my Sunday for today.
