What I Ate 8/29/14

Friday, I just had to work but there was a catch – Rob was riding up to Philadelphia with me!  So I knew I would be going out later…

9:00 AM  Cheddar cheese omelet with zucchini and tomatoes.  Coffee with cream and coconut sugar.

I had a morning meeting and worked through lunch.  Before getting on the train, Rob and I ran out for lunch at our favorite place – Chido Burrito!

1:30 PM  Fish Rice Bowl with chips and salsa

3:00 PM  Ice caramel latte lite from Dunkin Donuts (for the train ride!)

9:00 PM  After work, I was starved so we got burgers and beers (2 for me) at a local bar.  I forgot a picture Sad smile

11:00 PM  Another beer at another bar.  Then Capo Giro just before midnight.  The most amazing gelato ever.

Honestly, I didn’t track all my calories.  I assume I was above 2000 so it isn’t a great day.  It is also obviously a lot of carbs.  On the bright side, I figured out that I like the fish salad from Chido Burrito better than the rice bowl.  I like the crispy lettuce over the mushy rice.  It is just a bonus that it is healthier!  So, from today, it seems I do okay with food as long as I don’t leave the house.  If only I could just stay home all the time.  I would be so thin and fit!  I also didn’t snack at all today.  That is what I prefer – no snacking, just bigger meals.  If I can just figure this out with healthy foods!

This weekends plans are lots of homework, errands, and going to the Renaissance Faire.  I am going to stock my fridge for next week’s food challenge!

    How do you like the coconut sugar with your coffee? And where did u get that? I want to start baking with it

    • I think it tastes really good in my coffee! I don’t know if it is any healthier than regular sugar though? I got at BJ’s Wholesale in a giant container. You might check vitacost.com too. They have a ton of hard to get stuff!
