A Week in the Zone: Tuesday

Bummer! No time to do photo documentation of my food on Tuesday. Seriously, people, my day SUCKED.

I had to come in early and work late, missed band practice, ate extra snacks, and felt distracted by my appetite/hunger most of the day (thank you, hormone poisoning). But I’m putting a check in the win column anyway because — in case you need to be reminded — today SUPER SUCKED. Instead of indulging in comfort food, I ate all Zone-approved goodness… just maybe a few more block of it than I should (and some popcorn… ooops.)

So sue me.
