It's a monday so this calls for a fresh new start to start eating healthy :) Exciting isn't it.
I'm trying to eat more protein because I am a lousy vegetarian (that eats seafood) and does not keep track of my protein intake. This is why I am going to start tracking my foods again. This morning I ate some weird foods together: shrimp and later I had some hard boiled eggs. I learned that I could not bring hard boiled eggs to work and try to peel them. The whole office thought I had a gas explosion when I did start to peel them. I also learned that I can not just peel the eggs at home because the office will again stink a bit. Maybe I could just put the hard boiled eggs in a salad and cover them with some dressing.
This month I ran my first 5K! I was excited. I basically kept jogging after another jogger. The strategy worked, the jogger in front of me told me that he felt like he had to keep going because I was directly behind him.
The plan for today is to do lots of homework. I took the day off of work to do homework. There's a food film festival at my school today. I wish I could go, the school is showing movies like Food Inc, etc... I LOVE food movies. I enjoy learning about food science and how a bunch of our food is synthetically made. "Leave corn out of this"...
Nevertheless, I have to take this journey one step at a time and not overthink things. I tend to get sick a lot, so if I could make better food choices perhaps I will not get sick as often.
I am planning on getting flavored coffee (mmm caramel) and then locking myself up in a library without internet access.
