Being Prepared

Today was all about living prepared!
I spent a large number of hours between arenas on our Island.

Before leaving in the morning I was a bit anxious and my tummy would not let me eat a full breakfast but I forced my self to eat an apple with peanut butter which held me until lunchish time.

I knew I would not be home for long periods of time so I packed myself a cooler of food.

What was included you wonder...Mary Crackers,hummus, grapes, cantaloupe, almonds and lots of water!

I did not give in to the temptation of eating any of the quick, easy and high calorie food that was at the rink. There were tables of baked goods, canteens of junk food and I did not feel pulled towards any of it! VICTORY!!!

Once home tonight I made a Taco Salad and enjoyed it knowing I had controlled my food intake today.


  1. Preparation is so key, isn't it? I am starting to prepare for my busy week days on the things I can take for lunch. So exciting to have victory!!! Celebrating with you!

  2. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO wonderful, Christine!!! I'm needing to do this as well. We have a trip to Texas planned soon and I've been thinking about snacks and healthy things for myself and my family to help with this very thing!! Thanks for the push in the right direction. I'm going to bring a healthy snack when I'm out doing errands/grocery shopping. It's so tempting to grab a sugary coffee or granola bar!
