Busy Busy Busy

Whew what a busy day!! Tuesdays are always busy!  I'm on campus from 8-5 and only one hour break in there from classes!  So with this comes challenges of eating!!  Before starting all of this, with days like this I would be lucky if I would eat at all.  So I had to get creative on simple things to bring with me to campus.  One thing is trail mix!  Now I had to make my own because I"m allergic to almonds and most trail mixes have almonds in them!  So I just got raw cashews, sunflower seeds, walnuts, coconut, and yogurt covered raisins.  It really good!!  So along with that I brought an apple with me, half a turkey sandwich, a baggy of carrots, and a babybel cheese.  Sounds like so much to eat and it is!! But trust me is' only like 1,000 calories for all of that!!  Another accomplishment is I actually ate breakfast!  Special K with 2% milk. 
Also knowing that today was going to be busy I decided for dinner just to put a pot roast in the crock pot.  I just seasoned it up with garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper.  I also added carrots and small red potatos to the pot and like a cup of water.  Turned it on low and let it simmer all day.  Oh it was so good then I got home, and I even have left overs to do something else with tomorrow night! 
So this morning before running out of the door I happened to notice my pedometer sitting on my desk.  So I thought why no I'll put it on for the day.  The current count is at 10,147 steps.  That's crazy!! Especially before putting it on I had already been out in the barn feeding the horses and everything!!  That just tells you how much running around I do on Tuesdays haha.  So that's about 5 miles of walking today! 
Still not quite done for the day, going to do some ab exercises that I found in a magazine that looked really good.  My calorie count fell below what I want it at, at about 1300 calories for the day.  And i"m full!!  Harder than I thought it would be to get to 1500! 
Anyways I hope I didn't ramble too much and healthy living to everyone!


Sorry no pic today of my food, I was too excited to eat it and totally forgot!
