Is Anybody Out There?
I hope a lot of you read yesterday’s post. It’s not that I think it’s a life-changing group of words or anything, it’s just that I am hoping I didn’t spend nearly two hours forming a 3,400 word post, thinking of thoughtful answers to comments and questions, and pouring out my heart for nothing.
Actually, those might be my favorite posts to write, since it might actually offer you some insight to how I feel on a certain subject you were wondering about.
Though I have been mildly disappointed with the relative lack of comments so far (does that mean nobody’s reading?), I am hoping that they will pick up to the point where I can do a “reader mail” type of post about once a week. So please, if you have any questions or comments, just publish them.
Not the Best Day, but Certainly not the Worst
Now that my pandering is done (and I thought it was good pandering) I’d like to take a second to discuss my Tuesday.
It wasn’t the greatest day I’ve turned in, but I don’t know how much I can really complain. At this point, posting a food journal would just confuse me, but I can run down the meals quickly:
Honey Nut Cheerios (too much sugar, I know, but still decent on fat and calories), Tuna on whole wheat with fat free mayo and a pickle, a bag of beef jerky, three low-fat hot dogs, a grapefruit and fat-free yogurt, a fairly large salad.
I ate six times, which has to be a new high for this diet. Even on the old one, I think I only ate six times in one day about twice. I am comfortable with five meals, six is good though. Of course, there was the big bag of jerky, which I am also pretty ok with. It’s like a sodium rosin bag, but still low in fat and calories. I grabbed that during work, when I couldn’t get home for lunch for another two hours. I’ll deal with that.
Of course, between the jerky and the hot dogs, there was probably a lot of processed shit running through my body. I have said before that I would like to cut down on that. And I’ve been pretty good about that. So I won’t beat myself up for a day in which I had what looks to be about 2,000 calories and less than 25 grams of fat. Like I said: Could be better, could be worse.
