I was soooo sleepy on my second day. Felt like I was moving and thinking through mud. It really didn’t abate at all throughout the day. The caffeine headache was right on schedule. I figure it’ll stop on Thursday. I can’t say that I woke up hungry, but I’m sure as heck consuming a lot fewer calories than usual. I keep meaning to figure out what my nutritional totals are, but I’m too sleepy to do that tonight.
Let’s get to the meals.
I really felt like having oatmeal this morning would only amplify my sleepiness, so I went with two hard boiled eggs.
Pasta and sauce. I pulled out all the chicken to save for my dinner portion. The pasta was really good (I’ll buy that brand again), but it didn’t really fill me up and by 3:30 I was craving something to munch on. I regretted not grabbing one of my apples or cut watermelon.
I was barely through the door when I made a dash for the refrigerator to heat up dinner. I had TWO whole glasses of milk and the chicken tasted wonderful mixed in with my pasta.
Lessons learned so far:
If I could go back and re-plan my groceries, I would have skipped the eggs and only bought a half gallon of milk. That would have given me a little bit more for rice and some veggies. A few folks have asked about veggies. Part of the challenge is to try and eat as healthy a diet as you can. To be honest, that is a low bar for me, but I was up for it. Well, I was up for it until I tried to budget for them. Fresh produce is ridiculously expensive comparatively. Actually, all the cheaper foods are worse for you. Go ahead. Compare the price of a loaf of wheat bread to ramen noodles. It’s really frustrating.
