Put Your Mind To It, Go For It

A Week in Food: Day 4

Posted on: May 21, 2010

Thursday was the first day in this “Week in Food” where I faced a social challenge. My sister-in-law is graduating from grade school this month, and the school held a special ceremony known as the May Procession. My beautiful sister-in-law was honored during this ceremony by being chosen to be the May Queen.

The food challenge surrounding this event was simply one of planning. The ceremony started at 7p.m. There was no time to eat a real dinner and make it from work to the Procession on time. My dinner consisted of some pre-packaged snacks. Not an ideal meal under ordinary circumstances, but having the right items in my glove box for a dinner on-the-go made it manageable by my Weight Watcher point standards.

FYI: I don’t recommend opting for fiber bars and beef jerky over a real dinner when a real meal is available.

Good for you for coming up with a plan to stay within your points for that day. It sounds like it was tough, but you made do. I like the idea of the sugar free jell-o with the fruit coctail. I’ve never thought of trying that before!
