Wow! I’m really falling behind here! So much going on with being social and entertaining kitties and preparing for the Performance Track showcase. Aaaahh! It’s so close! Which also means I get to see my parents and my grandma so soon!
Although it’s a shame I fell behind because. . .well honestly I haven’t been eating such fantastic food since the new year began. I mean. . .no, I just haven’t. It’s mainly because I needed to go shopping. After I went through both my pumpkin chicken and my herb roast chicken, the rest of the chicken was still frozen. I didn’t realize how quickly I’d go through what I cooked or how disgusted with chicken I’d be after I went through it. Shopping was in order and that didn’t happen until Saturday, January 4. I did a huge Kroger run, inevitably ended up cooking chicken when I got home, but luckily I also cooked the spaghetti squash the night before so I also made spaghetti squash crust pizza!
You know why that’s exciting? Because on two of the days I missed writing about, I bought a Hot-And-Ready pizza from Little Caesars (they are large pizzas for under $6!!) and ate the whole thing in one day. Twice I did this! Because chicken. Because no more goddamn chicken! Also because I realize that healthy food helps me feel really good physically and emotionally. Yes, being social NYE was probably the absolute best way I could’ve started the new year despite eating bad food. I even ate more food my body doesn’t really want New Years Day. I was still really happy because I just felt good starting the new year, but I feel even better when I know my body is getting the nutrients it really wants. So yay confidence and happiness, but also yay health!
Now I have salmon (AAAHHHH! I BOUGHT FISH!), hot dogs, salad stuffs, the pan fried chicken, and I have since eaten the pizza. This will definitely last me through January since I’ll be back in NJ for a week. I should be nice and 80/20 Primal this month. Unless I’m out being social again on a budget with my friends. Then I might fall to Taco Bell’s magical inexpensive charm. Yeah, that was dinner last night. Cheap nachos (tortilla chips with cheese sauce) and a burrito and a soda. But it was totally what I wanted and I got to chill with my friend doing not burlesque stuff for a minute. 🙂 Also, go me for turning down the Krispy Kreme donuts at work yesterday! At least the Taco Bell satisfied me after a spectacular un-dress rehearsal and a good day at work where I ate well. That squash pizza was really good.
Okay, so quick food catch up. This is not necessarily everything I ate on these days, but it’s what I can remember that’s probably important:
Tuesday, New Years Eve: Brisket, a cracker with cheese, chocolate, cookies of some sort, lots of wine! (see the progression of drunk munchies)
Wednesday, New Years Day: Finished the pumpkin chicken, veggie medley, pizza, hershey’s dipped in peanut butter (with Bubble – I love my enabler no matter what!)
Thursday, January 2: Large pizza lunch and dinner
Friday, January 3: Large pizza lunch and dinner (there were lots of Doctor Who feelings leading to emotional eating)
Saturday, January 4: lara bar, spaghetti squash pizza, one piece pan fried chicken (I went shopping first thing in the morning, I’m certain I ate something else, but I can’t remember)
Sunday, January 5: spaghetti squash pizza, apple, nachos, burrito (replenishing my body with something after using lots of emotional, mental, and some physical energy at the un-dress rehearsal!)
