Today has gone exactly according to plan so far. Brought my lunch, ate only what I brought, planned to go for a run after work to scout a new running area near work, and even though it was mildly wet out – sprinkling, really – and I didn’t have my contacts (so my glasses fogged up at about mile 2) I went anyway. 3.4 miles, my estimate is I burned almost 500 calories.
Now the wrinkle – I’m on my way to a regular gathering of friends tonight where dinner and snacks will be leftover food from a child’s birthday party yesterday. I knew I’d be going there tonight, so I packed a dinner this morning too. Some days you have to plan all the way through before you leave the house. Today was one of those days for me. Leaving the house this morning I had:
Laptop bag, gym bag, lunch bag, dinner, purse, umbrella. There’s a lot of schlepping, sometimes.
