The most important thing I’ve done today is finish the last of the strong bad episodes. Aw man, it was freakin great. Love Strong Bad cartoons, then they made a serial video game and it was even better. Also, everything I ever wanted out of a strong bad game. Yes. Let me opine more. Not really, I’m done.
Anyway, today was jury duty. We sat in a room beginning at 8:30, my group got to leave at 10 and come back at one thirty, we waited around another two hours and then they finally told us to go home. Turns out the trial my group was scheduled to be appointed to went (eventually) to a plea, and we also got to experience a judge coming down from on high to thank a different jury group for being a useful threat he managed to get a plea deal out of (that plea was guilty, and he was happy about it.)
So! I knew I was going out for lunch. So I didn’t eat breakfast. Turned out to be a good thing, since I was definitely not hungry for the first few hours we were there anyway (when I get keyed up, all the food I eat burns through my system…tmi, and ow), and I ate around 10:15. It was a gyro combo meal, and for once, the gyro meat actually tasted like meat and spices instead of salt and a little meat, and spices. Also included were: 2 cups of romaine lettuce, 2T of dressing, a 2oz baklava (best one i’ve ever eaten, bar none), 2 glasses of water, and a 2×2″ piece of spanakopita that pleased my tastebuds so much, I refused to not eat it. I did, however, take off the top layer of phyllo dough. Or however you spell that. Also, my v key isn’t working up to snuff. I really need a new computer.
Gyro: 600 cals (inc tzatsiki)
iceberg lettuce: 20 cals.
2T italian dressing: 100 cals
1 kalamata olive: 9 cals
1 pepperoncini: 2.5
1/8 tomato: 6
most of a cube of feta cheese: 80
Pretty good, if i do say so myself. That’s about what I eat for 2 meals every day, which it was taking the place of.
Dinner has consisted of a 400 calorie chile relleno that I bought from Whole Foods (not that I ate the whole thing, more about 7/8 of it.) The chile was… bland, and sweet. Chile relleno should always be made with New Mexico Chiles! I also had a very little sour cream with it, when I realized it needed a kick, but then it wasn’t hot enough and blaahhhh. So I’m calling the total about 400 cals anyway, because of the full fat sour cream. I almost never get the lowfat stuff. I’m just going to start buying Fage 2%. Nom nom. Has both the texture and the flavor I craaaave.
Total for today: 1590.
Going to have to ramp that up with a dessert item. I have no interest in attempting to eat the noodles I made for dh, since I didn’t actually measure what went in them. Bad me, I know.
On the exercise front: I walked -everywhere- downtown today, except for the last bit to the transit center, since my feet were killing me. It was well over 30 minutes.
I did 2 sets of 7 reps of sit ups. the first was a fail set, so i’m only counting the second.
Day 1, Week 1 of the 100 pushups challenge again. So far so good. I remembered to stretch.
I’m about halfway there on water for the day, but I tend to drink most of it at night anyway. Always so thirsty…
