I arrived in Victoria safe and sound after a long travel day yesterday. There is snow on the ground and apparently it’s planning to stay for at least 10 days. Nutty. All of the walking I had planned on doing may get cut down a bit due to inappropriate footwear packing on my part. Oooooops.

Travel day yesterday was pretty evil in the nutrition department. I was at the airport for 5:30am so decided I should have a coffee….love that early morning Grande Egg Nog Misto! I also ate 2 clementines that I had jammed in my purse on the way out the door. On the first leg of my flight to Toronto I mostly slept, so I didn’t eat and just had water when they did the drink service. Once at the TO airport I got a multigrain bagel w/ light cream cheese and a medium steeped tea w/ milk at Tim Horton’s. I probably should’ve eaten more but I was tired and nothing appealed to me. On the longer leg of the flight through to Edmonton I ate some of the bits n bites I had picked up at Bulk Barn and a few Christmas jujubes I had packed in my computer bag. I think I ordered a ginger ale from the drink cart that time….and slept some more. We touched down for about 30 minutes in Edmonton, but I didn’t get off the plane because I knew I’d probably end up with more Starbucks and I didn’t need it. 🙂 Once back in the air I had another water and finished up the bits n bites. Upon arrival in Victoria, my girlfriend and I opted to hit up our favorite greasy spoon for a very late lunch (actually dinner time for me) and since it was my only real meal of the day I opted for my favorite Breakfast Hash (which is essentially a heart attack on a plate….real home fries fried with scrambled eggs, chopped sausage, onions, mushrooms, cheese, etc….dipped in hollandaise….freaking terrible for me but oh so yummy!). I drank two huge glasses of water and two small cups of coffee. This kept me going right until bedtime though so I don’t think it will register too poorly in my calories for the day. In the evening I had a cup of tea, which was just what I needed. Oh and a couple of those egg nog almonds because I wanted my girlfriend to try them out. 🙂

Today is a new day. I’m alone at my friend’s place while she and her hubby are at work. Thankfully they are quiet healthy eaters so nothing sweet or carby to tempt me while I’m working (yes, I’m working this week!). For breakfast I had a cup of Tazo BlossomBerry White Tea (they don’t drink coffee…eeeeek) which was really nice, and I made a slice of Silver Hills 16 Grain toast with a schmear of cashew butter. Soooo yummy. I’ve never been able to find Silver Hills bread in Halifax…the Squirelly variety is one of my all times faves…maybe I’ll buy a few loaves to bring home. LOL. I have a clementine here to tide me over and then I think I’ll venture out into the snow and hit up the coffee shop down the street and grab a snack at the Market. Dinner tonight will be whatever my friends decide…he is a great cook so I’m sure it will be tasty.

I can’t believe I brought the Nova Scotia weather with me. Boooo.
