My part-time job has become full-time until the new guy is trained. One of the guys on another route failed to re-qualify with his weapon and so he resigned. So I am in the car all day driving from ATM to ATM, getting the deposits and taking them in to the branch. I am missing my step aerobics classes; I missed my Quilt Club meeting; I will miss my quilting class tomorrow; I am also missing Jazzercise as I am on call most evenings. I had registered for a Quilt Retreat that I had to miss as well. They were kind enough to put me in the April retreat.
Eating poses a special challenge because just sitting in the car for most of the day and driving doesn't allow for much activity that keeps the mind off food/eating. It would be nice to feel like I could just buy two meals each day but that gets really expensive and it's hard to find something that fits weight loss efforts. There is Subway and that's about it and even that is difficult because I eat as I drive.
I have been having a PBJ for breakfast using Ezekiel bread (made from sprouted grains, no flour), all natural peanut butter (that stuff really doesn't taste very good; I added some stevia), and sugar free jelly which is really pretty good. I take some almonds and a Quest High Protein bar plus my water.
I have been putting two soup spoons of chia seeds in a small bowl, adding 1 scoop of protein powder, two packs of stevia, sugar free jelly, and plain yogurt and mixing that up. YUM. If you haven't read up on white chia seeds, you may want to do so. They add a lot of protein and nutrition to just about everything. They are very small and crunchy - kind of like the seeds in a kiwi.
I hope all is well with everyone. Posting has not been too "deep" lately but I just haven't had the time. I am making a quilt for a wedding in the family, there are graduations and a retirement celebration soon not to mention birthdays and all that. Be well.
