Never assume a meeting will be short......

Cause then it won't be!   

My little snack before my 6:30 meeting was never meant to tide me over till 10pm, blah!   
Ah local city politics, never can be done quickly. 

I was SO HAPPY to finally get home and EAT EAT EAT!!!   :)

So recap of the day....

Mid Morning SNACK
-1/2 whole wheat sandwich thin w/ Bee's Knees Peanut Butter
-iced coffee w/ skim milk and 1 sugar

I headed home to walk the pooch, Reggie appreciated the ability to make a pit stop.  ;)
Made myself a lovely sandwich...
-flat out, turkey, FRESH pesto, tomato, spinach and sprouts
-side o' carrots

The pesto ROCKS by the way!

Very satisfying lunch...although I still needed a mid afternoon snack after a couple of marathon conference calls and then an urgent project dumped on me.  

-nectarine & Kashi Honey Almond Flax granola bar

Things ran late at work... I didn't get to leave till 5:30.  That left me with less than an hour till my city meeting.  :(   I tried to use my time wisely and cut up a cantaloupe I hadn't gotten to yet, snacked on a little bit of that.... but not enough to tide me over till 10pm unfortunately.  

6:30-10 is too long of a meeting.  At least in my book.  
I needed something good and fast when I got home,  another sandwich was in order. 

-flat out, turkey, provolone, hummus, tomato and sprouts
-side of cottage cheese & melon

I really should start packing snacks, this not eating till 10pm on a weeknight is just not good.  Plus now I'm a bit wound and cannot get to sleep.  Fortunately I don't have to workout at 6am tomorrow (sleep in till 7!)..... unfortunately I have a 10K race at 6pm tomorrow night, crossing fingers that the weather cools down a bit OR it is cooler by the ocean.  

It will be interesting to also see how my spaghetti legs hold up tomorrow night at the race.  I haven't raced in awhile so it will be interesting to see where I am at... especially with a 10K.  The last 10K I did was in June and definitely was not my fastest, did it in 47:06..... so my goal tomorrow will be to improve on that.  I don't think a PR is in my future at the moment, but at least I have a goal!

Hope you had a great day!
