Last Sunday was a hectic day (and I was a bit lazy) and I didn’t do any menu planning or food prep. I knew I would be out 3 nights this week and I really should have taken the time to get organized on the weekend. But, I didn’t and now I definitely regret it.
Not cooking main dinners (since I was out 3 nights) meant no leftovers for lunches the next day. I actually hated having to go out and eat lunch somewhere. I wanted to try to eat healthy, but there just isn’t much choice for that near where I work. I probably could have found something if I tried a bit harder, but again, the lazy factor kicked in.
Now, it’s Thursday and I have eaten out Monday dinner, Tuesday lunch, Wednesday lunch and dinner, and lunch today. I probably won’t eat dinner tonight since I had a big lunch and there just won’t be time between getting home from parent-teacher interviews down at my son’s school and leaving for hockey. I think I will have time to just stop at home, pick up my gear, and head out again.
So, aside from being lighter in my wallet, all this eating out has left me feeling BLAH…Bloated, Lethargic, Annoyed with myself, and feeling Heavy. I hate it.
Lesson learned. Menu planning and meal prep is the way to go for me.
Hopefully tonight at hockey I can skate off some of this BLAH. I’ll let you know.
How do you shake off the BLAH?
