It’s just October and I’m already pissy about having to eat all of my meals in the dark. I think I’m going to have to buy a grow light or whatever it is that people put in their houses to combat SAD.

I met with the trainer at 6 this morning before having a busy day and I’m dying tonight. I’m not necessarily sore – just tired. My muscles are slightly achy and I’m feeling like I just don’t want to move. I’m thinking I’ll be asleep by 9.

Breakfast this morning was 2 fried eggs and fruit/yogurt. I wasn’t starving since I’d just gotten home from working out, but I had to choose to either eat then or not eat at all until lunch.

I packed my lunch while I made breakfast – a salad (no dressing and no oil – I think I’ve completely weaned myself), an apple, some PB and some mixed nuts.

Jon cooked dinner tonight, as usual, and it was FABULOUS, as usual. The idea came from a recipe that we noticed at the market we often buy our meat from. We didn’t write it down, but Jon based tonight’s dinner on it.

It’s half a butternut squash topped with pork sausage. I was eating a small chunk of pepperjack cheese while it was cooking since I was starving – decided to throw some of that on top. I felt marginally concerned, but it turns out butternut squash, sausage and pepperjack cheese actually make a good combo. Even in the dark, which SUCKS, have I mentioned?
