Grrrrr. I need a good talking to. I'm RAVENOUS today and I opted to stay and work at home rather than going to the office. In retrospect this might not have been a good idea. I made a giant salad with shrimp to have for lunch today and I'm using half my available mental energy to convince myself that I should indeed eat the salad waiting in the fridge and NOT go into the kitchen and make mac n' cheese from scratch. I've been having the conversation with myself for hours.

It's my period, I think. It must just be around the corner.

Excuse the rant please.

Baffled, what I tell myself when I feel like that is "Go eat the salad. If after eating the salad and drinking a big glass of water and waiting half an hour, you are still hungry, then make the mac and cheese." Usually after eating the planned thing I'm not hungry anymore (but not always).

Thanks Jessica.

After posting, I decided to kick my own *** and went to get the salad. Enough with the negotiations. I'm eating it now, and actually, it's very tasty. It's not mac n' cheese, but there are croutons in it, which ain't nothing.

Yesterday was some off, as I ended up having a rueben sandwich for lunch instead of soup/salad, sigh. But the rest of the day was as planned.

Friday
B - oatmeal w/skim milk, 5 walnut halves, few craisins, ww toast with current jelly
S - ff latte
L - chicken oriental salad without the chow mein noodles (this is HUGE salad from our usual Fri lunch restaurant and while it's mostly iceberg lettuce, it has a ton of other veggies)
S - yogurt? fruit? I have both at work
D - leftovers: choice of curried chicken or salmon, squash

Eating at the campus restaurant doesn't make up for great meals, but at least I didn't go overboard on the portions.

B - 1 apple, 1 small bowl of cereals, 1 yogurt

S - 1 small cereal bar

L - Lettuce, ravioli w/ Swiss cheese (scooped out whatever I could), 1 yogurt

S - A few almonds

D - Green beans, turkey scallop w/ mushrooms and some cream, half a small bread (~20g) + cheese, 1 yogurt.

Exercise: 30 mins biking + popped up my 2 miles WATP DVD to wake me up when I came back from classes. (No kidding, 2 hours of semantics + 3 hours of Japanese IS tiring. )
