I'm here in New Hampshire, having arrived late in the evening on Wednesday after a long detour in the Albany, NY area. (i.e. I got kind of lost.) I meant to bring the scale with me so I could keep abreast of any progress or anti-progress, but of course walked out the door without it. Never mind—there were worse things I could have forgotten, and it I have to admit it is kind of nice to be away from the daily weigh for a few days. For my road trip on Wednesday, I stocked up with lots of fruit (bananas, an apple, a peach, a couple bunches of grapes), a couple servings of Wheat Thins crackers, and my water bottle, which was woefully inadequate. Should have brought several. I did stop about halfway through for a quarter pounder at McDonald's to give myself something with protein, a little more substantial, but no fries or anything else. I ended up being on the road for over 12 hours, but save for a couple times feeling drowsy, I was quite perky for most of the drive. I totally believe that it was the fruit. In the past I'd always have ended up eating nothing but junk food on the road, and I always had to stop at least once for a short nap. Lesson learned after all these years of road trips—took me long enough!
When I got to my dad's, I realized how hungry I was, and they had some pizza for dinner so I wasn't shy about helping myself to a few slices. I really wasn't.
Tally for the day (Wednesday)
Kashi GoLean Crunch with yogurt
two bunches of grapes (maybe 2-3 cups?)
a Quarter Pounder with cheese
three average slices of pizza (one pepperoni and two onion and mushroom)
Plus one more small slice in the middle of the night because I was feeling TOM crappy (wow, seriously! I NEVER do that.)
