I know how those busy days go. I always keep bars, fruits, poweders, nuts, etc. with me in the car, in my food bag that joins me when I go to the gym, if I'm going to a meeting, etc.

It really helps to have convenient foods on hand. Vega is great, many others are great too. Nothing like good ol bananas to do the trick too. That's what I use most often.

All the best!

-Robert

Thanks Robert. Yesterday was kind of a surprise hectic day. We just expected 1 doc appointment and then back to the comforts of home so I didn't pack my work lunch accordingly. My client doesn't keep healthy foods around much. So I made a detour to get a couple Vega bars. Today will be a much easier day since we have no appointment planned just cleaning half the house and tending to the plants :)

It was just 40 and sunny out yesterday. I was able to go out and walk the trail for 2 miles (thought about the 3 mile trail, but decided that the weather might not hold out for an hour or so).
Today we have 6 inches of snow on the ground already, but it is still a balmy 30 out. I am so anxious for spring and 50 degree weather out and sun! I feel like I can lose weight more if I am outside doing my cardio for some reason. I noticed that my daffodils are already up, so that is probably why I am like - SPRING is coming soon! Almost March. . . . . . and then April. . . I shall have to wait. . . sigh.

Once spring hits I will be outside working in my garden :) I literally hand till it cause A it is the green thing to do and B it is extra exercise. But we look forward to any day that is over 50 and sunny so we can go drive around the lake and feed the animals. I hate seeing the bison and elk penned up but I know they are much safer there and have a huge area to roam. For some reason that is still a dream of mine.... bison rescue farm. I did find some trails to take this spring!! Can't wait to try them out and see what I find. Would take my dog but omg that would be basset scent overload!!

I wish I had bison and elk but luckily there is a conservation center in the county I live in at the lake that has them.They encourage us to feed and interact with them but adhere to the rules. Sometimes they are in such a good mood they kiss my hand as they take the carrot or apple I feed them. Sometimes they let me pet their nose or head. I love to watch the kids interact with them but feel so drawn to the bison. I kinda wish I had snow on the ground here but it missed us but we got the cold air instead. I have seen dolphins up close but at Sea World..... My ex took me before I went vegetarian and as a birthday present.

Yeah is a habit of mine. I keep telling myself I haven't lost 74 lbs in 14 months by doing girlie workouts. I know that might sound bad but if you went to my gym you would understand....
