Always Behind - LOL.

Wednesday, September 01, 2010

Yesterday I got up early and got my outdoor chores done as my son and I had to leave in the morning to go to the Metro East area to buy chinchilla food. We don't have access to chinchilla supplies here. The closest place is 70+ miles. So we drove over there and went to Petsmart, Sam's, and Schnuck's. We got our groceries for the week too. We left at 9:30 and got home at 4:30. Probably 4 hours minimum of driving. When we got home we had to fix supper and put all the stuff away.

And then there was the overeating. I avoided fast food but ate too much healthy food at Golden Corral. Too much salad and salad veggies and meat. And had a bite of a few desserts. I probably would have done better eating fast food. LOL. Plus I had part of a little pizza for supper. In other words, I ate terrible and didn't even try to track my food intake. I didn't snack though. It was probably okay on carbs for the day but not calories. I didn't gain but it's a wonder.

I had to come home and get a bunch of walking in. I ended up getting 17236 steps yesterday.

And then I had to finish my end of the month duties for our sparkteams. Thank goodness I had done some of it the day before.

Today I got my outdoor chores done early before it rained. When my son was fixing lunch the high school called and needed him to come sub for half a day immediately. One of the teachers passed a kidney stone. So I had to make him a lunch and finish our salads and put his in the fridge for supper. Mind you he would not get lunch but he could cram something down between classes. He had to go immediately from school to help teach taekwondo so he didn't get home to have supper until 7:30.

I need to get caught up on blogs and sparkpeople but my internet has been on the blink tonight.

    I don't know how teachers do it. My sis is a teacher and she's supposed to hydrate (my term for the month - lol), and the bathroom is too far away. She tries to bring her own lunch, but the kitchen is far away. She didn't want to haul a mini-fridge into her room this year. It's nice you support your son the way you do. I'm sure he appreciates you.

    Can you get chinchilla food on amazon? Free s/h? A lot of gluten-free-ers go this route. Sometimes you have to buy gf food in bulk and it works out; I don't know about chinchilla supplies. This might work when you can't or don't need to drive there for anything else.

    You're doing great! Your stpes and miles are amazing. A bad eating meal here or there is not going to kill you (doing it every meal every day will, but that's another story).

    Have you considered getting the babies food online? Might be easier than driving 70 miles and might be cheaper too.

    You are such a busy woman. Hope you have a day of rest today.

    Wish you were meeting us in Arthur/Arcola. Maybe next year.

    I ALWAYS overeat at Golden Corral - and like you, it's always "good stuff", but too much good is bad, too!

    Been there, done that when it comes to the internet. What type of connection do you have? Hope things slow down for you a little tomorrow.

    Hey- you are right on target with youer calories. emoticon

    What a day! Not too bad on the calories and carbs, and you probably need that protein and fat just to hold yourself together!


    Schnuck's? We don't have anything that even sounds like that around here! Reminds me of Pennsylvania.
