Clean Eating on the Go & Today's Cooler...

I took Bethany to the doctor today for a sports physical, and realizing it would be snack time during the appt, I took my cooler with me. Before going into the building, I pulled out a baggie of chicken and an apple and tossed them in my purse. Bethany was cracking up, and I said, "hey, when it's time to eat, it's time to eat". She responded, "I know mom, but really? How many other people can say they have chicken in their purse?" Ok, she has a point. Lol!

Back at the office, I'm ready for lunch :-) so I'll give you a quick view of food today, then I've gotta heat stuff up and get back to work...  (fyi, you can click on the photo to go to the cooler page with the nutrition ratios)

Bitch Creek BeerWhen I did my grocery shopping on Sunday, I came across a display and simply couldn't resist getting one of these. And it's a good thing I only got one, because it wasn't very tasty, but the bottle was totally worth it, lol! I meant to post this yesterday, but forgot.

Next up... driving a rental... can I just say that the Camry is very different from my Hyundai? Lol. While it handles great and has power, I really miss my wheels (or Romper II as the kids call it). The gal at Hertz was fabulous and helped me work out the tangles with the other insurance company, to get me out of a compact (what???) and into a properly sized vehicle. Seriously though, I can't wait to get my car back (they're fixing the damage from the 2 incidents - neither of which was my fault, let me point out! Really!!).
