Rather than a Non-Scale Victory (NSV) can I call this today's Lesson Learned (LL?)

I got distracted by my parents coming way earlier to get my kid. They ended visiting some and then I was all rushed with getting out to teach my class. My plan for cooking went out the window and I ran out the garage hoping to grab something to microwave and... nothing of mine was left. I grabbed some of DH's sausage biscuit things and ran out the door. (This is a new thing he's trying for breakfast since he's working on not skipping breakfast. I'm not familiar with them.)

When I came home and sat to log it in Fitday I realized... dang, those biscuits are deceptively small for what they pack calorie wise.:o

Lessons learned?

1) Check earlier to make sure my stock of back up frozen food is... well, stocked!

2) Check first before eating something that isn't mine. :rolleyes:

I would say that is a great lesson learned for today. I live with my step mom and dad, so we are always running out of our breakfast stuff like oatmeal and cereal and things, so when I notice that something that I am allowing myself to eat is running low, I buy more, but I keep it in a place where no one else will look for it. If its in the house where other people can get to it, it will be gone shortly. So, yes, always keep a mental check on "supplies."

LL I like that LESSON LEARNED! maybe it will catch on...

Sometimes I think I am a "slow learner" because I learn things over and over and over. When the lesson learned FINALLY kicks in ...it is an AHA moment!

Thanks 2 3FC I understand that I need to be prepared and take food with me. By George I think I got it!! LL

Today I went out and restocked my frozen back up food. Go me! :)

I'm hoping to learn from other people's LL's too.

So who knows? Maybe it will catch on. We're all in this!

I think the major lesson in this and overall is to plan, plan, plan. It's all too easy to make a bad choice and/or just grab something quick when you don't have the good options.

I'm making soup right now to keep in the freezer as a lunch that I can grab and go, if I don't have an opportunity to make my normal daily salad. Just knowing that those portions are in there is such a relaxing feeling for me - no excuse to have to buy my lunch and not have control over the ingredients.
