Today is another example of what happens when I don’t plan out my meals ahead of time. The day consisted of quite a bit of eating and drinking in the car while on the way to work and while running errands. I really hate eating in the car, but sometimes it is necessary when you fail at planning and time management like the Ashley pants.
I started my morning off by talking to Lynda online while drinking a big cup of Trader Joe’s breakfast blend coffee with organic half and half.
My breakfast wasn’t anything special. It was one fried egg with a little salt and pepper, a slice of whole wheat toast with peanut butter and cinnamon on top, and an organic granny smith apple. I also drank water out of my boyfriend’s Redskins Tervis tumbler that I commandeered because he never uses it. 😛
As usual I took my sweet time getting ready this morning and didn’t allow enough time to prepare lunch for myself before leaving for work around 12:30. I didn’t want to be late for work, but I knew I would not last all day with no food. So what did I do? Well, I swung by Bojangles of course. ughh shame shame! What a terrible “nutritionist” I am (and I use that word very lightly). The struggle is real. Isn’t that what the kids are saying these days??
I got the kids chicken supreme meal with rice. I ate it on the way to work because I am not about to broadcast my poor food choices to everyone in the wellness center I work at. Even though I’m broadcasting it on here…shhh! Oh well, just keeping it real.
I was craving a smoothie several hours later, so I decided I would find a smoothie from somewhere while running an errand for work. I went to Panera Bread remembering that I had seen smoothies on their menu before. They had two choices: strawberry or mango. I chose strawberry. It was pretty good! One complaint though…why are their straws so fat? I got instant brain freeze! Again this was consumed in the car
Well, I had planned to cook some sort of Mexican food like tacos or taco salad, but then I didn’t get out of work until almost 8pm. All motivation for cooking was lost! So I settled for the next best thing, Chipotle.
This is a chicken burrito bowl and I think it has been featured on one of my WIAW’s not too long ago. I eat Chipotle at least once a week now because I work nearby one, so it is hard to resist. I also drank more water with my dinner. I didn’t mention this, but I drink water constantly all day long while at work, but I never take pictures of that, because that’s kind of silly. “Here’s my water at 11 and then again at 11:30. And here’s me holding my water at 12” 😛
Now I am sitting here cuddling with Rose about to watch an old episode of Doctor Who before bed. I hope you guys are having a great week! Thanks for reading!
