I’m craving popcorn – strange, I know. I’m not sure what happened to my ice cream cravings, but they seem to be gone (for now). Right now? Just popcorn.

Most all of my cravings seem to be gone, actually. Today’s the first day I’ve had a true craving of any kind – and it’s not even that strong – more a faint desire to just eat. My hunger is different in some strange way, too. No more frantic meals because I’m STARVING, no more grumpiness when it’s been a while since I’ve eaten … it’s just all gone and appears to not be coming back (although I’m still not 100% sure it won’t, of course – could be a fluke). Very strange, anyway. I’m really liking the way I feel lately. Jumping off the carb/grain train has been a good thing for me. I feel balanced and calm about eating for the first time – ever.

I had an early morning appointment with the trainer, so I ate something quick on the way. I can’t eat much before working out, so this was just about perfect.

I went to the gym to do some cardio afterward and ended up putting breakfast off until 11AM.

I have no idea what I’m going to do when blueberries and raspberries are out of season again. I’m already worried. Seriously.

I ended up eating lunch around 3:30PM since I had breakfast so late. I didn’t want to eat much since I knew Jon would be cooking dinner when he got home, so I ate a smaller salad. I added a few of these little jalapeno cheddar chicken sausages despite using the sweetish rosemary lemon dressing because I just love them. Kinda weird, but it worked.

Had a small snack while Jon cooked dinner.

The dinner he cooked was SO good. Little spicy, but not overly so. I missed having rice a little, but the world didn’t end without it. It was a quick meal to cook – maybe 20 or 25 minutes?

The basil came from our garden – apparently I didn’t completely kill it when I smashed it last week!

I’m at 1,903 calories, 132g fat, 90g carbs and 106g protein and I’m done. Ready for bed, too. I used to think life was a tragedy when I was forced to go to bed before the sun was down when I was a kid. Yeah … not so much anymore.
