Hungry and Angry = HANGRY! That was the word of the day on Tuesday. I had a very long day of work (12 hours), so I tried to space out my eating differently in order to accommodate a dinner time that wouldn’t happen until 8:30PM. Ugh! That was horrible. My breakfast happened at 10:30. I ate lunch around 1:45. It didn’t help. I was HANGRY by 5PM. This was really bad timing. I had to drive to a local school district and testify before the school board on the importance of school breakfast. If it wasn’t the week of the #CalFreshChallenge, I probably would have just stopped somewhere along the way to grab a quick snack. In fact, I was tempted to do so anyway and just take a big #FAIL on the challenge this year; however, I soldiered on and headed to the meeting with an empty and growling stomach. I know I’ve endured Congressional hearings that were longer than this school board meeting, but it sure didn’t feel like it last night. I swear I was there for 6 hours… Well, it probably felt that way because the focus was on breakfast and people kept talking about food. Not helpful.
At the end of the day, I survived. I didn’t strangle anyone in a HANGRY rage. That pasta tasted better than it will all week.
