Weigh In mystery solved

When I went to bed last night I noticed my bathroom scale wasn't sitting even as the corner of  bath rug was under it. Mystery weigh in solved. I always weigh myself before I go to bed and first thing when I wake up. The fluctuations intrigue me. Well when I stood on it last night I knew the number looking back at me couldn't possible be right and then I noticed the smidgen unevenness.

I took today as a rest day as I am crazy sore especially in my quads, here I was saying my lower body is stronger then my upper body.

I think the Zumba made it worse but it's all good it just means those muscles were working.

Tomorrow I fly to work and that alarm is going off at 3:30 am. I decided to try a different strategy for breakfast. I try to eat before I leave as I won't get to my desk till 8 am and that's too many hours to not eat anything. Today I made a breakfast sandwich which consisted of a bagel thin, egg, 2 slices Canadian Bacon and a slice of Velveeta Thin. I made a second one to reheat in the microwave tomorrow morning.

It hit me as when ever I get a breakfast sandwich from Starbucks or Tim Hortons there just reheating the precooked egg. Instead of Velveeta I put a bit of Light Tex Mex cheese as I thought that would handle the microwave better.

I'm also thinking the protein will keep me full longer. I've done oatmeal before but my stomach starts grumbling when the bus pulls up to my office building.

On Wednesday I need to grab the bus to Fort McMurray (a 2 hr bus ride) so I have to bring an overnight bag with me. I'm staying in a hotel overnight as I need to go to a meeting on Thursday. I opted to pack a bag instead of bringing stuff from my camp room as then when I come home on Thursday I just unpack instead of hauling everything back up. I looked at the weather and Fort Mac is supposed to have a low of -35C/ -31F on Wednesday - awesome.

My flight home on Thursday is 2 hrs later then usual so I'll have to be super on my game with a day and a half of eating out so close to weigh in. At least the Fort Mac airport has a Subway.

I have pre-tracked Monday up until supper as I have no idea what the camp kitchen will be offering. I'll most likely grab something from the pack lunch kitchen like a pb&j sandwich to eat after I run.

Is the corn and crab chowder soup homemade or like progresso style? I personally love any and all kinda of chowder... Yay for discovering the reason for the wonky weigh in. Have fun on your mini trip even if it is for business. :)
