Day 3: Wondering What to Eat and a Date…
I definitely feel hungry more often since I can’t stuff food into my face mindlessly. Since I could stand to lose a few pounds, I don’t think that’s a bad thing. Silly enough, every single day I expect to look in the mirror and *be* skinnier… really? IT’S BEEN 3 DAYS! Maybe the crazy’s setting in from the lack of carbs and caffeine. I don’t know.
I did find out that someone I work with is vegetarian and is taking his family vegan for 21 days. I was excited to think that someone can relate to this new life I’m living. (instead of “new,” I 100% was about to type “crazy”)
Good side note: I don’t feel tired till I’m supposed to feel tired. I can go all day on a couple cups of tea. It’s kind of invigorating to know that I don’t get those mid-morning or mid-afternoon slumps. Yay for energy!
(Went to a breakfast meeting for work and they had burritos(!) but even if I wouldn’t have given up eggs and cheese, they all had meat in them. It’s very weird for me that more people don’t know what Lent is or what it entails. In Texas, Catholics must be a small majority because even the nonners know I can’t eat meat on Friday)
Mid-morning: banana (it was starting to brown so I just shoveled it in)
Lunch: leftover shrimp salad from Wahoo’s yesterday (I kind of wish I had a little more to eat but it was enough to get me going)
Late-afternoon: wheat pasta and some mushrooms, no sauce (I was about to go on a date and couldn’t make it as STARVING as I was)
Dinner: Seafood salad (calamari, shrimp and scallops – that were overcooked) and two glaases of Pinot Noir at Cafe Santorini in Pasadena. I really liked the place but it was super crowded and our table was *literally* 3 inches from the next one so we did the awkward eavesdropping thing with two different couples. One lady paid for the room (admitted by him) AND dinner. And, we agreed, he wasn’t that cute. The other couple was totally eavesdropping on us… I hope I gave them some good nuggets to laugh about after we left.
After Dinner: Coffee Bean Chai Tea Latte
