I finally felt good enough to come back to school. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean I felt good. By the end of the day I think my voice sounded a little bit like Gilbert Gottfried, minus the insensitive tsunami jokes. I’ve tried, to no avail, to keep speaking down to a minimum at home and drink fluids, but I know tomorrow is still going to be bad news. Get excited for going mute!
Breakfast–Peanut butter toastwich with a hardboiled egg. I really like hardboiled eggs, but I usually don’t think fast enough in the morning to make them. Therefore, I made them in advance and have a ready supply in the fridge. Score.
Snack–I needed sugar to get me through the morning, so I went with what I think was my last Fiber One bar. Although I say that all the time, and they keep appearing. So…yeah.
Lunch–Campus ministry team meeting with pizza. I had two small pieces, some sea salt and cracked black pepper chips, and a Coke. Not the best, but remember, I’m in survival mode now. 3:25 can’t come fast enough.
Dinner–Roasted chicken from Randall’s, asparagus with lemon, and a chickpea salad I made with red onion, red bell pepper, cilantro, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, salt, pepper, ancho chili powder, and of course, chickpeas. It was a fantastic meal. If I had thought about it, I would have made bread too, but my brain’s not in tiptop shape right now…
Dessert–Whoopie pie with my cookies and a tablespoon of marshmallow creme. Delicious.
So that’s about it. Not healthy enough to work out, and I can certainly feel all the hard work from last week wasting away. Going to be tough, but I still think I can hit my goal. One month, ten pounds…bring it on!
