December 10

This looks pretty innocuous, but it was actually a lot of food. My fajita illustration definitely does not do justice to the delicious dinner! I ate more chips that those pictured. I think I will start drawing closer quantities. It was a vacation weekend, so recording was a bit slip shod.

December 8

Was kind of a strange day, lunch wasn’t filling enough so I ended up having a snack right before dinner. Dinner was not good, so I didn’t end up eating much of it at least. The natural cinnamon toast crunch was way too good to be that healthy, but at least no high fructose corn syrup. I threw in some of those freeze dried blueberries too.

Oops! It was actually Wednesday, December 7.

So today wasn’t the best. I switched to a thinner pen or there is no way this would all fit on one page. One thing I am noticing is that I tend to want to taste anything I can see. Yikes! Also, I think I eat so many satsumas because I am really thirsty and not drinking enough water. Especially with all the coffee I drink. I was falling asleep on the couch and had to have that last one…

Thanks for the nice comments. I would love to post any of your pictures. If you email me a photo, I will start a section for friends!

Today fit on one page, yeah! Honestly, I would have eaten more but didn’t want to go to the next page. I did really well today. That enchilada recipe was really good! I modified it since I didn’t want to make the tomatillo sauce. Super easy and healthy.

Yoga was supposed to be heated level 2 Vinyasa. The heater was out when I got there, but I thought it would be interesting to see how much I sweat if there is no heat. Well, not much it turns out. But it was an especially difficult workout since the teacher wanted us to get warm. The funniest thing was that these 2 friends who were checking in (30’s, well-dressed professionals), were actually getting in the yoga teacher’s face about the heat being out! And in the studio and locker area they kept complaining to each other, “This is bullshit”. It was so out of context with the whole namaste vibe. Someone needs to practice their ujjayi breath.

Okay, I need to make this as easy as possible for myself to maintain. I’m going to try and take photos rather than scan each day’s drawings…

Things will evolve, for now, I am not trying to make each drawing perfect, but just get it recorded. It may get better or worse as far as quality. I will also need to make size consistent since it took me 2 pages to record Monday’s food. I should be able to keep it all on one page.

Now I see two issues: snacking on kid’s food, and snacking while cooking.
