That’s a pretty perfect title for my day yesterday. I made a real mess of things!
Breakfast: I got up on time, but then the dog walk took longer than usual, we couldn’t find my daughters school tie, I couldn’t find any clean socks. I ran out of time for my cereal in all the chaos… and then forgot to lift the banana I’d planned on having on the train.
Lunch: In the crazy morning rush I had just crabbed a packet of noodles from the cupboard. I knew they were syn free at Slimming World so figured that would be a good choice. But I’d never tried that flavour before and they tasted awful! I mangaged to mess up cooking them too and they ended up chewy. I had a little but couldn’t face anymore. Did I then nip out and grab a soup or something? No I just skipped lunch.
I didn’t have any snacks during the day, because I hadn’t thought to lift anything. I had a couple glasses of orange squash, the sugar in that must have kept me going.
By the time I caught the train home from work I felt so drained. I got really woozy and dizzy on the train and could barely stay awake. I thought I might faint walking up the hill to the house. I almost crawled onto the couch when I got home.
Then I messed up. I had a couple chocolate digestive biscuits hoping for a quick sugar lift. Cue the guilty chocolate feeling.
Dinner thankfully was lovely. A spicy sausage and bean casserole. Since I don’t think I’d eaten any protein whatsoever in more than 24hrs it was very much appreciated. (Thank goodness my husband can cook!) Again it’s a Slimming World recipe so I knew it would be healthy.
But the biscuit guilt lingered on and I had more chocolate after dinner.
So it was definitely a case of failing to plan and boy did I fail! I ended up eating junk and feeling awful!
Clean slate… fresh start.
