Yes yes yes, but what did you eat?

I know, you tune in to the blog for food, not for philosophy.

So here you go:

breakfast: eggwhites (140)

mid-morning snack: half the cottage cheese carton (140)

lunch: salad with lettuce, beets, onions, a few little black olive slices, a spoonfull of chickpeas, fat free dressing, the crust from a co-workers' pizza

mid-afternoon snack: the rest of the cottage cheese and a skim milk latte (hello calcium!) (140)

dinner: salad with lettuce, tomato, capers, crabmeat, shrimp, regular dressing

after work event: glass of pinot noir with co-workers

Not sure on the calories on the salads, but it was obviously a good day for protein, calcium, there was some olive oil in salad dressing 2, and the only junkie carb was the pizza crust, which is pretty minor. It looks like between 1000-1100 to me. Really nailed that calcium, which I haven't done lately, so felt good about that. And the high protein days are always the best for mental function, alertness, etc.

It's 10:40 pm and I'm back at the office attempting to get a few things done before going to bed.

Great pop music fest on the radio driving back from the work event tonight... "Born to Run," followed by that Gordon Lightfoot song about the ghost from the wishing well, followed by the Cars' "Best Friend's Girl," followed by that sad song about the father and the daughter... you've heard it if you've ever somehow tripped over the Delilah show on a soft rock station.

Guess you had to be there, or be a pop music junkie.

Anyway, exhausted, much philosophy jumping around in my head, but more soon.
