I went to the food store today to get more eggs (shocker!) and spinach.  What the fuck is up with spinach?  You can add 18 cups and once it’s cooked it only comes up to 1/2 cup…it doesn’t seem to matter how much you start with, you always just get a 1/2 cup at the end.

It’s sad to walk through the store and once you leave the produce and meat section, there is NOTHING else for you to see.  Just keep moving along.

Impressions:

I woke up feeling pretty good today. I weighed myself, which is against the rules. I just couldn’t help it.  I was pleased and not really surprised that I had lost weight. I have a bit to lose and in the beginning it always comes off quickly.

Breakfast today was YUMMY!  If you dig oatmeal, I’d try this recipe but lower the number of eggs. I made it with only 2 eggs and it was more oatmeal like than scrambled eggs.  So good!  It will be going into rotation.

I don’t think I have any real cravings yet. I thought I’d miss cheese and bread more. I am finding it hard to come up with ways to cook vegetables. I need to find more recipes.

At around 4pm I got a really bad headache and just wanted to stab stab stab everyone. It lasted a good while, even with Tylenol. But by around 7pm I was feeling good again.

Bed came pretty late again. I’m not sure if I just have more energy or it’s a coincidence at this point, but I’m usually still awake past midnight which is unusual for me.

Overall I’m feeling much better for the most part and still motivated to stay on track.
