If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.

Serious lack of planning on my part today led to some bad eating. That's what happens, I guess. It also led to me forgetting to take any pictures of my food!

We started off the day okay-- I made the kids German pancakes (with added chia seeds), whole wheat toast and fruit. I had oatmeal and an egg.

I packed us up a lunch and we headed out to the science museum for the day. For some reason I didn't pack any snacks. Fail. We ate an early lunch and by the time we left the museum I was famished. So what did I do? I rummaged through the kids lunch boxes and ate whatever crusts of their sandwiches they hadn't finished. I really should not ever let myself get hungry. It just isn't pretty. I'm sure my friends who were at the museum with us can attest to this.

Wednesday evenings are super busy, so I had just enough time to throw a whole wheat tortilla with melted reduced fat cheddar and two slices of turkey bacon into my mouth as I drove the girls to gymnastics. It wasn't enough, so when I got home from gymnastics, I had some of those DIVINE bunny crackers I discovered yesterday.

And then later I had a small blueberry protein shake with a Vitatop.

The problem is I am still feeling snacky. I should really go brush my teeth right now, but I can't promise that I'm going to.

Today is a rest day for strength training. It is needed--I am really sore, which is definitely a good feeling! Did you know that after just four days of not working out you begin to lose muscle tone? So even though I tried to keep up some semblance of exercise while we were at Disneyland, my soreness now is a good indicator that I lost some muscle on vacation. I did 30 minutes of cardio this morning, and I had intended to run again tonight, but I am beat. I think I'll just do some Pilates instead.

**One very strange, yet positive thing happened today at the museum. A man asked Isaac if his older sister wanted a turn. Yes, folks. He was referring to me. So maybe I don't have the perfect body that I wish I did, but I guess I still look young enough to be my son's sister!! (Either that or the man had forgotten to put in his contacts this morning.)

Hey look, everyone, it's me with my younger brother, Isaac!!
