Finding My Way Back

Had an early assignment today that forced me into the street at a frightful hour.

For me, 7 am is like...ow!

I fortified with cottage cheese (lowfat), 380 calories, before leaving home. Blueberries too. They're out of season, and I normally don't buy them in winter b/c they're always flown in from Chile (I try for local first, organic second). But I gave in. And ohhhh boyyy. These are good. And a coffee.

Didn't get a chance to eat again until about 1pm. Only option was a greasy diner in Queens.

Got a veggie omelet. Lots of veggies, and it was good. Got homefries with the dish -- only ate 1/3. Did eat the two pieces of wheat toast that came with, and it was buttered. I try to avoid butter on my toast usually.

I didn't eat the toast just because it was there. I ate it because I was hungry, and I was going to be outside again in the cold for the afternoon.

Got home earlier than expected, around 5pm. Gave myself half an hour to rest, then hit the gym

20 minutes on the stairmaster (currently icing my knees) and 30 minutes on elliptical.

More cottage cheese for dinner (380 cals).

Also 1 oz baked chicken.

Maybe will have a lowfat berry yogurt later, if I am hungry enough.

Right now I'm wiped out. Am thinking that I'll be in bed before long!

By the end of this weekend, my freelance project should be done. Hallelujah!


  1. So did you just have cottage cheese and chicken for dinner? That sounds humblingly small. No salad or vegetables even? How do you manage? Sorry for all the questions but I'm obsessed with learning how successful people do this dieting lark. Well, not that it's a lark!

    Funny how the blueberries were nice - we're always being solemnly told that they won't taste of anything if we buy them out of season from far, far away! I always knew this was a line.... And by the way, what are home fries?
