Gotta be prepared

So I had to go in to work for a couple of hours this morning and then I was dropping my car off at the mechanic because the check engine light has been on.  I was smart enough to take some snacks with me, but ummm yeah I have not gotten the hang of being prepared yet and didn't think about lunch.  So sitting at the mechanic and decided I was hungry!!  Finally found out my car won't be fixed today, stupid fuel pump.  So walked from the mechanic's to the bus stop to get home.  Realized I was really really hungry and may not make it home without starving... ;)  So ran into Wendy's for a bite to eat.  What oh what can I eat?  I'm 28 days out from surgery and trying very hard to stick with my eating plan.  Aha moment, CHILI!  okay, so their chili was not the best, I make better chili, but in a pinch it worked.  at least I was not so hungry that I picked the wrong things, although, I think I was so hungry I ate a little too fast because it gave me some indigestion!   :(   Next time, I gotta remember to be better prepared!

My nutritionist says Wendy's chili and Taco Bell Pintos and Cheese are the best choices for grab and go lunches. So, good choice! :)

Great choice!! I'm learning the same thing about being prepared. It is such a learning curve. :)

Nikki, thanks! I'll have to remember that because I'm sure this won't be the last time!

Beth Ann, there's a learning curve for sure! We can do it though!
