Back in the swing of things

November 10, 2008

It felt so good to go back to my regular eating habits and have a day off from swimming.
Breakfast: two pieces of Fox and Obel pumpkin bread with pumpkin better, plus cottage cheese and greek yogurt mixed with honey, a mashed banana, strawberries, slivered almonds, cinnamon, and a sprinkle of Grapenuts. Why did the photo of my breakfast not turn up? I don’t know. Maybe I forgot the photo, since it wasn’t as pretty as my usual oatmeal.
At 10:15 I met Kath and Jenna at Panera, where I got a nonfat mocha…
the whole experience was unreal for me. At first I was afraid of the age difference, but I had a great time! It was so interesting for me to be able to talk to other food bloggers, and I definitely think that once swimming is over I’m going to try to start blogging on a daily basis. What I really want is an audience, and I want to become part of this great network where everybody is so nice to each other (God, that sounded cheesy, didn’t it?).
Lunch: a salad made from leftover roasted vegetables and pears, raddichio, pine nuts, balsalmic, and maple syrup. Also a piece of toast with a Laughing Cow and some smoked trout, which I love. I let myself digest a little and had a lunch “dessert” of graham cracker sticks, microwaved Silk Light chocolate soy milk, and some dried apricots.
A little later, before I headed out to see my friend’s Indian Dance performance, I had a snack of apple slices with PB and some Kashis to tide me over.
When I got home, my parents had already eaten, but there were leftovers for me. YUM, my dad’s Chinese food: scrambled eggs and tomato, bok choy and tofu, and brown rice.
I’ll probably eat a little something else before I go to bed. See, even on my off days, I shovel in food like a trash can (But hopefully one that has nicer garbage, like one at Whole Foods or something). I probably won’t be blogging much this coming week because next weekend is Sectionals and I want to be getting a lot of sleep, but after swimming is over, like I said… the blogging begins.

    Hmmm… I don’t see any “age difference” in that photo at all.
