On Today’s Menu: Saturday February 22, 2014

Today was an awesome day! Got through a pretty long work shift. I didn’t eat anything I shouldn’t have (barring how you define “shouldn’t). I beat some battles and I got to end the day with the boyfriend. . .who is tooootally not convincing me to get a tattoo on both my wrists. Because. . .y’know. . .I said I wouldn’t. . .so don’t get any ideas!

Highlights: My non-zero day attitude won the day today! Future Brenna is my best friend and I don’t want to do wrong by her. Thanks past Brenna for not eating chocolate chip cookies or pizza! The burgers and chow mein were delicious! My co-workers make getting through long days at work so easy. Did I mention I put in a huge order from Tropical Traditions the other day? Soon my discounted 2 quarts of Gold label virgin coconut oil and 2 17.6oz jars of Canadian organic raw honey will be shipped to my door! And 6lbs of grass fed bison! Then I can start making baked magic happen in my kitchen again! I got to Skype the boyfriend when I got home after surviving my very long shift at work. Best way to possibly end any day. I was still having weird sadness feelings, but he fixed it. 🙂

Struggles: I think I was a little too vocal about food today. It’s like getting over a cold. For getting over a cold there’s always a cough that lingers; for getting over a sugar shock there’s always some bitching that lingers. I apologize. I was super tired by the end of the day even though I was sitting for the majority of it. Probably because I’m an introvert and every patron sapped some of my energy. True story. I made some mistakes at will call which stressed me out, but they were easily corrected. I missed out on going to Amber’s for movies and food 1. because I was just so drained and ready to crash and 2. I had been doing so well with fighting food temptations that I didn’t want to put myself in that position. I wasn’t just going to say, “Hey you better bring food I can eat too!” because that would be rude. I was getting hunger pangs while skyping the boyfriend. I understand why: I hadn’t eaten since about 4 hours earlier and that was my snack after dinner. But I didn’t want to hang up because I don’t like cutting our calls short. There’s going to be so much baked goodness when he’s down here in April! ::fingerscrossed::

Here’s one of the things I ate today:

Grass-fed burgers with broccoli and cauliflower
