I'm usually better prepared. In my rush to leave the house this morning, I forgot to prepare and pack a good snack for my midday location broadcast. There wasn't time in between work at the studio and heading to this client's customer appreciation cookout from 11am to 2pm. The client was cooking for everyone--free food and plenty of it...Hamburgers and hotdogs, chips and soda, plus ice cold bottled water. My breakfast started wearing off about 11:30am and I knew, it was going to be a long 2.5 hours before I could get away and eat something else.
"Nobody has ever starved to death between meals," I kept repeating those words from Life Coach Gerri. But then again, maybe a hamburger with mustard would be a good option at this juncture. I really wanted to wait for a post broadcast lunch at home. My apartment is literally less than a mile away--so I waited. I texted Gerri about the situation and told her I forgot to plan, prepare and pack--I forgot the three P's!!! I coined the "3 P's" phrase and I forgot!! Hey, it happens, you know?
By the time the broadcast was over, I was more than ready to eat something filling and delicious. I prepared some baked beef and bean tacos with two kinds of melted cheese, lettuce and salsa dressing (salsa mixed with light sour cream). I'm glad I waited. It was incredibly tasty and satisfying.
Once lunch was finished, I had just enough time to get a short nap before heading to my second broadcast of the day from 5pm to 8pm. Making it until a late dinner didn't seem to be a concern like the lunch situation. And maybe it helped that I wasn't surrounded this evening by the aroma of a giant grill.
About 7:30pm, after considering dinner options--and leaning toward a quick grocery run and cooking something at home, I suddenly scrapped that plan for a quicker restaurant stop for more tacos--this time shrimp tacos with sour cream and lettuce. Apparently this was taco day in my world. Had I known this earlier, I would have prepared breakfast tacos this morning!
I'm wearing polo style pullover shirts without all the self-conscious craziness I once carried. This is a big development for me. I don't need the t-shirt and over-shirt look anymore in order to feel confident. Even though it's apparently a fashion thing, considering the male mannequins at the store are doing the undershirt/over-shirt thing. I invented that trend, I'm pretty sure--in my late teens.
The broadcast tonight was an annual broadcast--and many of the people I came in contact with, I hadn't since last year. The compliments came heavy. I practice saying thank you and that's all--except for the occasional tag of "I feel fantastic!"
The pull-over polo style shirts really show my weight loss better than any other clothing. To me--better than how it best shows the weight loss, is the fact that I'm not wearing them along with enormous hang-ups. I'm just wearing them, because it feels good and right.
Today's busy schedule made it very easy to rely on my activity for a calorie burn. Fitbit has given me an activity burn of almost 600 calories. I'll take it and be happy!
This is one of the busiest weekends of the year in this area. My broadcasts tomorrow include a big car show broadcast starting at 8:30am followed by a location broadcast at a grocery store, pushing their massive meat sale. I'm getting to bed now!
