Have you ever had a day where you just sort of fell into your work and time just slipped past without you noticing? That has sort of been today. This morning I nipped out on a walk before the rains came. The park had only small sections where there were deep puddles but otherwise it was clear. I’m pretty sure that is no longer the case.
As I was heading back the skies opened up and I squelched the last half mile. The last low spot I went through soaked my sneakers through and I’m pretty sure is now deep enough to not be passable. So I did get a walk in. I just got soaked in the process.
Then I dried off, changed clothes and jumped into what i was writing. And that has been my day. There was no makeup, no real e-mail and I kind of forgot lunch as well. But the story I’m working on, is fantastic.
The problem is now that I’ve taken a moment to step back and think, I am feeling the missing lunch. I can actually see the box from Tokyo Treat and all of the goodies it contains. I was planning on snacking on one of the items in it today, but I know that there will be no minor snacking. If i open one thing I will just plow through several items. So I am putting it away and going for a bunch of grapes. I figure the act of pulling them off the stem and eating them one by one will make me feel like I am eating many items (hence the reason I didn’t go for the satsuma). Its like the fruit equivalent of potato chips.
I know that sounds a little strange but that is one of the best dieting tips I know. It is definitely better not to skip meals but sometimes life gets away from you. Then it is better to stop and have a snack that feels like much more than what it is and that you can control. A box of tasty treats will just tempt me into trying multiple items. A bunch of grapes feels like a lot of items but doesn’t promote a massive caloric intake. Sometimes management is your best option.
So I am not going to be upset about missing lunch and instead celebrate what I did get done today. I am however going to manage my calories so that I don’t react to dinner like a plague of locusts. Luckily tonight we are doing our own baked potato bar so it is much easier to control. It isn’t a meal where I planned for left over portions to be used later, so that kind of saves me a well.
So no makeup today, just a bit of dieting advice for when you find your day sliding a little off of your planned path. And with that I will leave you with a list of several Elemis sales that you might want to take advantage of. Personally I love Elemis products. I really love Elemis products when I can get them at a discounted price.
And with that I leave you in the hopes that I can fall back into my story and get a few thousand more words down before the day is done.
