We’re out of town again this weekend – part of the weekend, anyway. My plan has been to eat as well as possible, as much as possible. I am trying to stop the derailment that seems to happen just about every weekend – and every time we’re away from home.

Yesterday was ok. I had an earlyish session with the trainer, so I split up “breakfast” and ate the yogurt/fruit fairly early and then waited on the eggs until A) it was actually light outside and B) enough time had lapsed since working out to prevent sickness.

I ended up not eating again until I was in the car leaving town around 3PM since my earlier eating was so random. I stopped at a place near Jon’s office (kind of far from home, so I couldn’t pass it up since I was in that area picking him up) and chose a falafel wrap and some pistachio baklava. Jon got a chicken shawarma wrap, so we ended up going half-and-half. I split the baklava with him, too, since I’m nice like that.

We went out to dinner last night at an Italian place with Jon’s mom. Too dark for pictures. I ordered some sort of tortellini that pissed me off. I have ZERO patience lately for food that is cheap quality-wise, overpriced, over/undercooked, etc. I (maybe unfairly) expect a lot from the meals I choose to eat that are eaten for entertainment/pleasure purposes vs. solely for nutrition. The tortellini was good, but wasn’t fabulous. The meal was enjoyable for other reasons (conversation, etc.), though, so it was totally worth it. I’m just turning into such a crank about this.

Jon cooked breakfast for me this morning (at his mom’s house).

Eggs and tomatoes from his mom’s garden (I think we went a little too heavy with the salt).

Lunch was a quick salad with 1/2 an avocado, a few cubes of colby jack cheese, broccoli, cauliflower, tomatoes and a little homemade oil/balsamic vinegar dressing. We picked up a rotisserie chicken, too.

We took a walk with the dog this morning, but I wouldn’t come close to calling it exercise.

So far, so good. Not sure about tonight, but I think some birthday cake might be happening.
