Food Log

I was premature in my celebration for not snacking last night. I woke up hungry at 4 am, and when I couldn't fall back asleep because my stomach was growling, I went downstairs to eat. I would have preferred to sleep straight through until morning, so I must remain open to late-night snacking.

Snack
4:30 am - 1 slice tuna melt

Breakfast
9:30 am - 4 crepes with maple syrup, cafe au lait.

Lunch
1:00 pm - 2 mini chicken sandwiches, 1 local apple, 1/4 cup salted roasted peanuts.

Dinner
6:00 pm - 1 grilled fish taco, six or seven (?) small glasses of cider (4 oz cups), a few handfuls of kettle corn.

We were at a party from 4:30-7pm. Mostly I drank the homemade cider. W snacked a lot on crackers and whatnot, but I didn't. T did bring me a taco when they came off the grill. I did have two handfuls of kettle corn at the end because I was starting to get hungry by then. I will certainly have some more food this evening, I am quite hungry now that we are home.

Snack
9:30 pm - about 1/2 cup of egg salad I made with eggs, mayo, celery, onion, spices. 1 V8, 2 vitamins, 1 packet fish oil. Finished first canteen of the day, started next. 1 oz raw almonds.

Food Log

I ate a late breakfast because I wanted to exercise before eating. I read somewhere (years ago) that if you exercise first thing in the morning you're more likely to burn fat than carbs because there are no carbs floating around your system. I have no idea if that's been proved or discredited in recent years, but that's what I was aiming for.

Breakfast
10:00 am - 3 crepes with maple syrup, 1 banana, finished 1 canteen of water. 1 vitamin, 1 fish oil packet.

Snack
11:45 am - cafe au lait

Lunch
1:30 pm - 2 slices everything pizza (thin crust from Anna's #5), water, a few pieces of fried calamari

Dinner
7:30 pm - 1 slice tuna melt (same recipe as yesterday), broccoli, water, coffee with milk, 1 piece biscotti. 2 vitamins.

Those goldfish crackers are still singing their siren song, but I have once again resisted, although I came close to giving in. When I ate 2 slices of tuna melt for dinner last night I didn't need to eat more later in the evening (save the almond snack). But it's been a few hours and I'm starting to get really hungry after having just one slice of sandwich. I might have to eat more tonight, we'll see how I do.

Snack
11:00 pm - NONE!

Whoo! I made it through one evening without any snacks! I am hungry, but hopefully I'll feel fine in the morning. I am going downstairs now to get another canteen of water to keep up here by the bed. I'll have to nurse between 2 and 3 times before breakfast tomorrow. . .
