So, I'm almost all ready for tomorrow. I just need to make a couple sandwiches/wraps and prepare my water & gatorade bottles and a thermos for tea. The food planning has been the hardest part for me, oddly enough. I have a tendency to have sugar crashes under certain circumstances such as: physical activity, stress, more than 3 hours without eating, and sometimes for no real reason at all. I've had blood work done a number of times and it's always "textbook perfect" so I just need to make sure I'm always prepared. Especially since most of the time I do not feel hungry before a crash. Anyway, all that to say that I need to make sure I've got plenty of balanced, easy to eat food on hand for a day like tomorrow.
Here's what I'm brining to eat/drink:
3.5 litres cold fluids - 1L water, 2.5L weak gatorade
1 thermos of tea
2 wraps, one turkey, one ham. both with ample amounts of veggies
1 small container of leftover beef stroganoff (hey, I wanted something warm!)
Electrolite chews and energy bars - in case of emergency
Ha! You think it'll be enough?? No wonder I can't drop that excess 10lbs or so.
I have my clothes laid out and my bin of barn essentials ready to go. I sound like I'm getting ready for a real show :) Whatever, you always want to do your best!
My husband unfortunately can't accompany me because it's an all-day thing and we have a foster puppy right now. She's probably ready to stay the day by herself but she has had crazy diarrhea, so she needs to be monitored. Why, oh why, do I have to mention the quality of canine poop so much? My husband asks this regularly, lol. What can I say, poop is the window to animal health.
Anyway, wish me luck!
(By the way, I am very disappointed that no one commented on my super-awesome do-it-yourself bit warmer post. Ok, so it could have been more instructive, but come on! I freakin' did something with the sewing machine! And it was useful in the horseworld!)
