I can handle turbulence. No big deal. Most times, I can literally be sleeping against the window and not even wake up. I’m an exceptional plane sleeper. I should add that to my resume.
Now, the turbulence I had today was SO unexpected. It happened when I was on the ground.
So… after going through security and getting the special extra scanning for the first time in 2012, I went to Quizno’s and ordered my sandwich.
I know that the airport people HATE me (and the people in line behind me didn’t love me either)… because I ordered as follows: Mesquite Chicken Sandwich, no cheese, no bacon, no Ranch, extra tomatoes, light honey mustard on wheat. Possibly a record for my typical modified meals.
Anyway, I planned to cut about a third of the sandwich off and throw it in the trash. Um, I ate the whole thing. Estimated calories of that sandwich exceeds 500 calories. GASP!
As though that weren’t enough, there were additional bumps…. I went to the gift shop to get a water and they had these, so I thought I’d get them too.

I was going to eat one cookie because I “wanted something sweet.” Those cookies had no chance.
By the time I left the airport, I had about 165 calories left for dinner and any snacks. HOLY CRAP!
Interestingly, I was able to recover! I got home and hit the gym immediately. I am seriously starting to look at working out as a way to add more calories into my life. It’s like my eating for the day is a checking account… there’s deposits and withdrawals all day long, and you NEVER want to overdraw. At this point, I needed a SIGNIFICANT deposit.
I did some serious cardio combined with some strength training. While I had NO desire to go, it was fine was I got there and got going. If you’ve never been on Friday nights, the gym is a total ghost-town, so you get through your machines and equipment super fast – – no waiting!
Afterward, I came home and made a delicious Weight Watchers soup and ended up with a positive balance in my food “bank account.”

It was a bumpy ride, but I made it through. This is the first day in FOREVER where I’ve had bumps like this… it’s nice to know you can bounce back!
