Everyday Find That PMA

So on Thursday's and every other Tuesday I host pub trivia's sponsored by my baking company. Thursday's are at Johnny's Saloon in HB and Tuesday's are at the Gypsy Den in Santa Ana. It's a blast and if you're ever around you should come down and get your nerd on! It's all different kinds of trivia so you don't have to be a super smarty pants to play.  Today was a Gypsy Den day. Since trivia starts at 7 I can't do boot camp on trivia days. Knowing this and knowing how disappointed I was with myself after the weekend I got up and went for an hour walk with Nycole. Had some whole wheat toast with natural peanut butter for breakfast. We went to this cool restaurant in Long Beach for lunch called The Crooked Duck and I had some brie with fresh fruit and half a tuna sandwich on whole wheat.

The thing I love about Gypsy Den trivia is they give us a tab so we get to eat really good food for free while we host a really cool trivia. So we had a well portioned Mediterranean hummus plate with lots of fresh veggies. I had a Mediterranean side salad and pita filled with spinach, red peppers and goat cheese. I got a 1/4 of the way in and realized I hated the pita. But our favorite manager Phil took great care of me and got me something else instead. I ended up with a Caprese wrap (whole wheat tortilla with fresh spinach, tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and balsamic) which was amazing. Clearly I was in the mood for Mediterranean this evening.  I ate half of each and took the rest home for lunch tomorrow. I did have some Stone smoked porter but that's just because I was nervous cause I do all the MC'ing for trivia. Something I learned is that beer makes me feel very full and isn't really worth the calories. See doing trivia makes you smarter!

It wasn't an optimal eating day but it was leaps and bounds ahead of yesterday. Sometimes after you get back on the wagon you still hit some bumps in the road when you start your journey again. All I can do is make even better decisions in the morning. It's my goal to get up in the morning and go for a walk. Tomorrow will be a better day. Gotta have a PMA (positive mental attitude) cause a positive outlook is half the battle.
