I saved the day

I started out really bad today. I usually make sweet tea to take with me every morning, Saturday mornings are my earliest day. I have to leave the house by 9:10am. The rest of the week i leave around 10am so I didn't wake up in time to make my beloved sweet tea today. When i ended up at Panera this morning i thought if i ordered a bacon, egg and cheese on sourdough i would be safe, after all sourdough isn't that bad. I guess i overlooked the bacon, egg and cheese.

Well still that's not where i went wrong. Coffee came with my breakfast bundle and i knew i had to have some caffeine so i wouldn't get a headache.

coffee (one cup caff, one decaf) 0 (yea zero!)

Oh wait i was telling you about where i went wrong, i can drink coffee black. I like it sweetened and creamed. If you've ever been to the coffee bar at Panera you know that there is everything wonderful for your coffee, the options are almost endless. I really like turbinado sugar so i grabbed a few (19) packets. I also have to have my creamer, when i buy creamer for the house i use land o lakes fat free half and half, its very creamy and think, i really like it. The stuff at Panera isn't fat free. . .

half and half creamer 9oz. 350

On the good side again, i had a cup of fresh fruit, honeydew, cantaloupe, grapes and my favorite fresh pineapple

So at this point I'm up to 1310 for the day and have only had breakfast. GASP!
What's a girl to do? Starve, yes starve the rest of the day. No, that's a bad idea. If i starve myself i will go crazy, so later i had a grilled chicken sandwich from ChickfilA.

I didn't get home until almost 6pm and I had ChickfilA so late i wasn't really hungry. I told my daughter that was going crazy to get out of the house because she hasn't been anywhere but school and home since she can't remember when, her birthday she thinks, that we would go to the park and walk around the track. When we got home it was 8pm, so i just had grapes for dinner.

I know i shouldn't have but my heartburn was so bad that i had a little ice cream about 11pm.

That leaves me at 2051 for the day. I'm sitting here now reading others blogs and updating mine trying to keep busy and my mind off food. I should just go to bed. Night all.
