what's your day like?
just wondering... i'm finding that i have to be very regimented in order to get all my protein and liquid in, and i fell apart yesterday, almost fainting because i didn't get the protein in until about 10:30, after i'd been up for nearly 4 hours, and exercised, and cleaned and did laundry, and more.
so.... what are you doing to make sure you get all your STUFF in???
my typical work day looks like this:up by 6:30, and i don't have to be at work until 9:30-10:00.... so, it's a 2 mile walk, then 20 oz SF wyler's lemonade [because i like the extra vit C] while i make breakfast [usually rolled up deli meats and very very thinly sliced cheese or a deviled egg], and lunch [protein, some veg or salad], and snack of cheese or something. and a piece of fruit. i keep a slice of protein cake in the freezer at work and a premade protein shake in the work refrig, too..
and then, aroun 8-8:30, it's protein shake. and then pack breakfast, lunch, and snack into an insulated bag, and into the car around 9, and breakfast in the car... then i get a very large iced decaf at starbucks, with some SF vanilla syrup, and add about 1/4 c milk, vanilla powder and a sprinkle of nutmeg. and by the time i get to work and get settled in, about 1/2 hour has passed since breakfast so i can start drinking
and then 12 oz v8. and after that i start falling apart!!! some soybeans [a couple of tablespoons] if i'm hungry, and lunch happens when it happens, never before 2. and i fit in another 16-24 oz liquid, and then i leave work anywhere between 6 and 7:30, and i'm hungry, so i eat some beef jerky and maybe the cheese snack on the way home. maybe the protein shake. and then i can't manage dinner. sometimes i just have a little cottage cheese or cheese around 9:30...
anyone who says we've taken the easy way out has no clue!!!
Start your day with a smile, and get it over with.
