Day 4... Almost forgot!

Pre-breakfast: Fiber and spark 
Breakfast: 6 mini egg muffins, low-sugar oatmeal
Morning snack: banana, 2 protein bites
Lunch: Leigh's baked pasta, watermelon 
Dinner: turkey meatloaf, sweet potatoes and green beans.
Late snack: one protein ball

I'm doing this daily for accountability. It's 1 am and I'm laying here awake from ruthless cramping. And of course I'm hungry. Dinner was later than usual because I was meal prepping, so I didn't have a good snack like I usually do.

I made protein balls for the first time and ate one of them just to try them. Pretty good, but not as good as my neighbor made them. Mine are dryer, so I'll adjust the recipe next time.


Basically they are almond butter, honey, flaxseeds and oats. 

Next week is my last week of school and my last week of teaching at my current job. Lots of emotions, but I am still excited that the move is so close! We booked a moving truck on Friday, so it's getting real! 

But with end of the school year comes a lot of eating opportunity. Even if I dodge that bullet, I still have to wrestle with my birthday and graduation the following week. 

No matter what I'm still glad I did this challenge now instead of waiting. I desperately need to do something NOW. I need the accountability and routine. Even if I can't be 100% perfect.
