I’m back from my mini-vacation up the mountains so it’s the usual daily grind for me. Sitting. Writing. Very sedentary.
Once again, MyFitnessPal gave me a reminder that I didn’t eat enough today. Below the minimum 1000 calories.

I practically stayed at home, wrote as usual, and cleaned my apartment for some 15 minutes. I did my usual morning and evening drive routine. Prepared my meals as usual. Nothing too different from the usual.
Today I had some fresh strawberries which I brought home from my trip. Added some potassium and vitamin C to my diet. I sliced some and added to my oatmeal.
Lunch: Whole grain rolled oats, honey, fresh strawberries
Afternoon Snack: Roasted almonds, 5 pieces of Mentos Soda Mix Flavor Candy
Dinner: Brown rice, leftover Gumbo with added Hungarian Sausage
So how did some candies ended up here?
Well, somebody I know slipped it along with the pack of fresh strawberries. She’s so thoughtful. It’s been a while since I had these candies so I didn’t mind eating some. Yeah, I know. Sugar. Those 5 pieces contributed 6.2g of sugar. But mind you, overall for the day, I DID NOT go beyond my limit of 47g. So, for me, that’s totally fine.
The Hungarian sausage was the 2nd of 2 pieces left in my freezer. So now that it’s gone, I can focus on other meats. Chicken breast is a staple, so I might be cooking with it these coming days. Plus I have some beef too. Tough cuts of beef! I wonder what I’ll be doing with it?
I don’t want them to go to waste. Hate leftovers!
