"Eat Food. Not too much. Mostly plants." -Michael Pollan

Thursday, November 15


I'm not having the best day. Lots of stuff going on that is stressing me out in my personal life (nothing major, mostly financial) and it's put a damper on my day. I didn't enjoy my lunch and I could feel the urge to binge (I hate that word!!) coming on. If there had been cake in the work kitchen, I might have gone to eat it. I really have that "food will fill a void" feeling in my chest. But I know better. And thank goodness there is fried chicken and biscuits in the kitchen (ewwwww fast food) and not dessert!

I went for a short walk even though I didn't have the time in my day to do so and it made me feel a little better, although I talked to the husband on the phone. I should have just breathed fresh air and got my mind off of things.


Garbanzo beans spread on bread with avocado. It was very dry and a major disappointment.

3 oz root veggies (I missed my baby spinach ;( )

Kiwi and POM

A small bit of leftover pretzels (craving....)

Cranberry yogurt:

All together for 613 calories!! YIKES!! That sandwich was a KILLER disappointment. And those root veggies were too high. Next time I'll cut back on the high-cal ones.

Tonight is nutrition class at Queens. I have a test and I'm not prepared!! But I know I will do OK on it, but maybe not a 100 this time because I haven't had the chance to study enough. Dinner is in the dining hall with my mother-in-law and husband. Yay! I'm going to try not to eat a smörgåsbord this week! I've got 602 calories remaining if I don't have an afternoon snack.

Unless class gets out early, I'll see you in the morning.
