January 15th Food Diary

Calories: 1360

First full day staying at my grandma’s. I brought an oatmeal mix I made for myself back home for breakfast/lunch, so that was nice… then came dinner at her favorite Mexican restaurant. My plan was to just get a side of plain beans and eat some chips and guacamole. That was all going fine until the waitress (who knows my grandma) kept making comments on my “small” dinner and how I needed to eat more! Sigh. The beans and guac were the only vegan items on the menu, lady. And their salads contain more cheese than… salad.

I felt like it was embarrassing for my grandma so I ate a bunch more chips along with my beans to prove I was getting plenty for dinner. So then I went from a nicely sized dinner of 400 cals, to 700 calories of social pressure.

Then at midnight I got bizarre cravings for fruit–probably because of a blood sugar crash after all those tortilla chips. At least it was fruit and not pastries that I went for!

The raspberries there were SO GOOD I got a box.. and ate them all in a day. Including on top of my oatmeal. Why can’t the ones we get back home be this good?

Exercise: walked 1.8 miles
