Food & Exercise Diaries, Starch Solution

Day 19-20: October 3-4

Day 19/23

I’m back from out of town, and finally got caught up enough to find a spare moment for blogging! PhD application season is getting more and more intense…

Day 19 was a perfect macro day! I also had a wedding photoshoot, and found out at the end of the shoot that the husband was a professor at my university. I tend to treat all my clients like friends (aka casually), so that was a weird thing to discover!

Day 20/23

I went out to brunch at a vegan restaurant with a friend, resulting in eating what was likely lots of fat. My macros could be totally off though, since I was guessing the restaurant added plenty of oil.

Then at night I had squirrel poker with my lab, in a big beautiful mansion that we’re somehow affiliated with. I was still full from brunch, so I only snacked a bit.

Day 20 was also my last day lifting for a long time–I finally lifted again last week, after a 2 week break! (Between being out of town and playing catch up on the mountain of stuff I have to do.)
