Hump Day Eats & Drinks ... #ORCcrunchday


It's crunch time.  Serious focus required.  Like Venti with an extra shot focus!

The last few things on the punch list for tomorrow's reveal are in full swing.  I am downing back to back unsweet teas and living off my favorite go to snack mix!  I need to switch to water ... but I will wait until mid afternoon!!!



On busy days it's best to have a drink and snack plan!  If I don't plan then the whole eating and drinking falls to the wayside.   I always start with my regular cup of coffee and then after carpool I switch to a Large unsweet tea (with extra ice from McDonalds).  Mid morning snack includes a Skinny Girl protein bar and a banana.  Lunch includes whatever I can eat on the run, most times a protein box and a bottle of water from Starbucks.  After lunch snack includes my favorite snack mix.  Unsalted nuts (almonds and walnuts), goldfish crackers, craisins, sesame sticks and sometimes I add golden raisins.  It is the perfect mix of salty and sweet for me!  When Lawyer makes it for us he puts it in little snack bags in the pantry.  Super helpful!!  xo


If its a beyond busy day my go to snack on the run is a Snickers bar.  When I did Weight Watchers after the middle child was born my coach told me it was the best in a pinch snack.  The protein in the nuts was good and it was better than most grab and go at the gas station snacks.  I still use this.  If I don't eat enough protein I get headaches.  This trick has always worked to keep those at bay.

Today is a busy day ... but luckily not a beyond busy one!
