Today did not go according to plan. Training was supposed to be a run - that did not happen. Food was supposed to be spot on - that did not happen either. Either way, the details are laid out below, starting with my training which was at around 5:30pm.
7 Min AMRAP:
5 Bar Muscle-Ups
10 Single Arm Dumbbell Thrusters 22.5kg
6 Rounds exactly
This was a super quick workout, with no warm-up as I finished work for the day. I was a very physically active day anyway, and I was plenty warm enough. This was just enough of a dose of intensity to feel like I'd done something productive. I'm fully aware the training value of this was far more psychological than physiological.

Breakfast at around 8am was bacon, scrambled eggs and blueberries.
For lunch, I had a plan to eat at my favourite coffee shop, where I was going to have bacon, halloumi and eggs. I missed opening hours, so I ended up with a pastie, some pre-packed cheese and a peperami. Not ideal at all, but it did the job!
At 5pm I had a Grenade bar.
At 9pm I had lamb mince topped with cheddar, followed by grapes, blueberries and yoghurt with honey.
Although today was far from ideal, I stuck to the key points - train somehow regardless, and eat well most of the time. Rather than let the fading light beat me entirely, I chose a short workout that required minimum set-up so I had no reason not to move, and committed to movements that yesterday's workout wouldn't restrict too much. With regards to food, I ate poorly through lack of planning, so rather than dwell on it, I just made sure to eat well again at the next meal.
