Hi Readers –
Today as I was commuting to work, I promised myself that I would be doing a blog post tonight if it was the last thing I do! When I started the blog the point was to prove that you can balance your life… find the time to work, commute, exercise, eat healthily and have a social life. Well, in the past few weeks I have been struggling to find this balance myself!
Work has been busy. The commute has been long. Exercise has been hard to come by (except for my wonderful lunch time walks with my work friends!). Food has been fine, but I have not thought too much about it. I have often thought about my blog, and have not been able to find the time to do my daily posts. This makes me sad! 😦
I am going to do my best to get back on track. Yesterday I had a long day – but I went for a walk at lunch (2 miles) and after work I found the energy to go to the gym (ran 2.25 miles). I even took pictures of my meals 🙂 But after getting home from the gym at 7:30, thinking about dinner, starting laundry, packing my lunch for the next day, and so on it was quickly 9:30 and I had to get ready for bed because I was exhausted!
Here is what I had yesterday: an Arnold’s sandwich thin with peanut butter and low sugar jam for breakfast. I hate the end of Daylight Savings Time. I was having breakfast at 9:30 yesterday morning, and my stomach thought it was time for lunch already!
Lunch was a small cup of minestrone soup from the Caf with a few Wheat Thins (the “touch of salt” kind, only 5% of your daily sodium!) with a light Babybel Laughing Cow cheese. My afternoon snack was a small pear. Unfortunately during the day I snacked on Trader Joe’s peanut butter pretzels twice… I cannot resist them. I drank lots of water during the day (per usual) and had a cherry flavored Emergen-c in the afternoon.
For dinner my mom made enchiladas which were fantastic. Along with enchiladas, I had a glass of half skim and half light chocolate soy milk.
So, even without the pictures being processed and uploaded, I figured I would write a blog entry tonight just to put something out there.
I promise to have the blog back up and running soon.
