it’s been awhile. so here goes:

breakfast: 100-cal pack of oatmeal with a splash of of Silk French Vanilla creamer; two cups of coffee, both with Silk French Vanilla creamer.

lunch: about 3 oz of turkey with Bone-Suckin’ sauce.  soooo good. also 2/3 of a tiny sweet potato, baked into fries and dipped in ketchup. then i had about 1 T of s’mores trail mix, a bite of praline, and 5 little gingersnaps (about 50 cals). now i’m so sleepy.

snack: didn’t want the whole, messy grapefruit i brought, so i ended up with a handful of caramel popcorn from the breakroom.

dinner: at least a cup and a half of grapes, a medium salad with Annie’s Lite Gingerish dressing (cauli, cuke, purp onion, some green olives, and greens), and two medium bowls (total 1.5 cups probably) of some brothy soup i made.  also, about 4 gingersnaps and a few of my spiced nuts.

dessert: probably 1/3 c of s’mores trail mix, 1/4 c of yogurt with some puffins, and i’m sure some other things i can’t remember…  i felt like i snacked all night.


my birthday!

i hate weird eating schedules.  and of all days, on my birthday, mom planned for us to have lunch at THREE.  so i’m trying to plan how to not get grouchy about it.

breakfast: i had a [measured] 1/3 c of Activia nonfat vanilla yogurt with some rum falvoring (!) and 3 pecan halves.  i also had 3 strawberries and two small cups of coffee with whole milk and a dab of peppermint mocha creamer in each.  it’s my birthday!  later, we’re going to Taverna, where i’ll probably get salad and pizza, and i will probably take an apple along for a snack…

feeling sickie.

I went to bed last night feeling really terrible, and then today I feel like I am coming down with something. 😦  As a result, I’ve felt like I deserved more food, which isn’t true.  GOSH.  I hate it when I use food the wrong way.  But here goes the low-down.

breakfast: about 10 squares of puppy chow from the breakroom, a cup of coffee with soy, another cup from starbucks with peppermint and mocha in it (!), some hot tea at work, and a 1/2 c of nonfat plain yog with 1/4 c of canned pumpkin.

lunch: i didn’t eat til almost 2:00 because jim took me out!  aah!  i HATE getting off schedule.  i get really grumpy when meal times are late and out of my control.  but we went o the most amazing macrobiotic restaurant, where i had about 1 c of salad with unknown dressing (raw, vegan, gluten-free), about 1 c of posole, a thick, brothy soup, and then a plate they served me with a serving of kale and a T of some sort of yogurt sauce on top, 3/4 c of garbanzo bean hash, 1 c of roasted veggies (carrots and squash with slivered almonds).  it was huge!  but i didn’t feel full…

snack: i ate my big cameo apple right when i got back, then also had coffee with pumpkin spice creamer, a piece of peppermint taffy, and about 5 more squares of puppy chow.  oh, and a tiny little gingerbread cookie!  gosh.

dinner: a pecan half and a cashew and a carrot. half a roasted cabbage, with some roasted purple onion and a few roasted shittakes, dipped in ketchup.  no, it was good. then i had some fresh cherries and on the way to mom’s, i had about 1/3 c of kashi heart 2 heart with about 2 T of chocolate chips and some more fresh cherries.

dessert: it’s the holidays, okay.  so i had way too much fruitcake and a whole mint chocolate chip cookie from aunt lez and about 3 strawberries.
