This is going to sound like so much boo hoo, poor me, but it is a real arghhh for me. I don't have young children, so days are pretty much divided between work and home. I go to work, come home and sleep, get up and do chores and then back to work. I don't own a car, so I spend about 2 1/2 hours on the bus every day. Because my folks work "normal" hours, they expect me to have dinner ready or at least almost ready when the get home. I can deal with that. I eat with them and record that as my lunch. I take more of what I fixed with me to work, or left overs from the night before, and that is dinner. A snack before I leave work and then another low carb item when I get home for breakfast. In the past three days, I met my calorie goals 1 time, and that is only because I gave in and had two cookies some one brought in. Today, I will just break 1000 Calories. I am eating, and I guess I could eat more calorie dense items, but I am just frustrated because putting my dinner together for to night and I am looking for what else can I take. Because I have to sleep when I get home, I don't want to eat a heavy breakfast. My breakfasts are light, but I just don't want to go to sleep with heavy foods in my stomach. I don't know, just venting and rambling now. I do feel better though, and now I have to get changed for work.

    Do you eat fruits and veggies? THose would be good things to add to your daily calorie consumption. Carrot sticks, broccoli, red and green peppers, apples, blueberries, strawberries, all are very portable and can be cleaned a few days ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator for easy and quick packing.
    Don't forget, eating under your calorie range is as unhealthy as going over it. If you don't have a Crockpot you might want to consider getting one. That would give you more time since dinner should be ready pretty much when you walk in the door. But above all else, Be mindful of your journey. Your health is important not only to you, but your folks. If you get sick, who will take care of them. Good luck!
