Got my bus pass today

I went out and got my bus pass today. I had to go downtown to get it, wait in line for an hour, wait for another hour for it to be processed, but I got it! Yay! Free bus rides for a year :) 
On the way home, something weird happened. I was almost at my stop, and we passed the stop before the one I get off. I thought to myself, okay, one more stop- and then didn't ring the bell to get off and we passed my stop. As we were passing the stop, I looked out the window and was like "oh, that's my stop" but the bus had passed it already. I have no idea why I missed my stop- I was so tired and out of it that I hardly noticed. Luckily, I could catch my connecting bus at the next stop, so I got off the bus and waited for the next one. I need to make sure to take specific buses- I have a choice between a couple, and one ends where I need to transfer and this other one goes past it. I normally take the one that ends so I don't do what I did today and miss my stop. 
Food: Yesterday I had oatmeal for breakfast, spaghetti with tomato sauce for lunch, and normal dinner. Also, 2 cups of coffee and a bottle of tea. Today? Eek. Oatmeal for breakfast, but a bag of chips and some M&M's for "lunch", with a regular dinner. One cup of coffee and a bottle of tea so far.

Marie, my dear, you need to have that reward meal I keep telling you about! It eliminates cravings and it was the key to me losing the 55 pounds that I lost. Trust me- it\'s essential to have a little of what you crave every now and then.

Thats so great you got your free bus ticket that will help so much to have free transportation. I havnt taken the city bus since i was in highschool im afraid i wouldnt even be able to figure out how to make sense of the bus schedule now lol Maybe its time for me to learn... dont think theres even a bus stop near my house so might be difficult to do.
Sounds like for the most part you are trying to eat healthy.... thats good you need good nutrition to stay healthy as you can....... hmmmm isnt M&Ms in one of the food groups??? lol they got milk in them somewhere and if they peanut ones hey thats protien........ and potatoe chip hey those should be in veggie group right ?? LOL
Have a great weekend big hugggzZz

It\'s wonderful you were able to get your bus pass.
M&Ms and chips. yummy/ as long as this only happens once in a while you are doing great. my type of lunch :)

I agree with you about he reward meal. in my book it\'s i\'ll eat something if i want it. This helps cut down on binges.
Did you enjoy those chips and M&Ms?
