I’m glad I got up a few hours before work today despite the temptation to sleep in all the way till just before work. It meant I got to cook myself some potato soup! I went for my usual stand-by here, which was just potatoes, onions, garlic, broccoli, carrots, califlower, and a protein (in this case, chicken.) Mix in some cream of mushroom and chicken, and some chicken broth and evaporated milk, and a few other seasonings (in this case allspice, poultry seasoning, curry powder, and seasoning salt) and you’ve got something pretty delish.

I love cooking so much, because the best part, the very best part, is that you get to eat your results. How cool is that? How many other things can you do where the end result is you get to eat it and enjoy the taste?

Update: March 23rd

Okay I did end up purging last night because I honestly felt like I was going to burst. I also ate a huge ass dinner, which I promised myself I wouldn’t but today was better! I had more self-control.

  • cereal (110)
  • corn (60)
  • 1 apple slice (10)
  • gum (36)
  • seaweed (100)
  • blueberries (20)
  • cereal (100)
  • dinner: califlower, carrots and mini steak (350)
  • gum (36)

total: 822

yay! I’m under 1000!!! That’s one good thing about structured days, less temptation around me. I’m back on track, hopefully I can keep this up. Might run/speed walk for a little (20-30 mins).

Diary Entry #18.b

Currently making quinoa, brown rice corn, black bean salad with some califlower. I wish quinoa wasn’t so expensive because I really love it but we hardly have :( maybe I’ll sacrifice some of my tattoo money to buy some. But I always use my tattoo money for something and I always feel bad. Oh well. After I eat, I’ll probably have that dance party. I just need to eat something. I’m very hungry. I eat meals way too far apart and it will be my downfall.
