Six Months

Friday, June 28, 2013

It was six months ago today that I lost my friend Ali after a 2+ year battle with cancer. Obviously I'm a little emotional today, but I'm trying not to let it affect my decision making. I had a healthy breakfast, sushi for lunch, and yes I did have some chocolate covered almonds but just a few and I'm not binging or letting my emotional state drive me to stupidity. That's about all I can hope for on a day like today when I keep looking at Facebook, seeing Ali's face, and bursting into tears. (Which is totally my own fault since I changed my profile picture to one of her and me.) I miss her. :(

Anyway, after lunch I went to the grocery store since I was out of food and got healthy things. I'm leaving Wednesday so I didn't need a ton of food, but I want to stay healthy this week.

Yesterday's food was OK too.

Breakfast: I had the rest of the cantaloupe at home, but then stopped by Whole Foods for a vegan scone since I was still hungry.

Lunch: Leftover Gardein Chick'n and roasted broccoli.

Afternoon snack: Honeydew from the farmbox in the office kitchen. SO good!

Dinner: We had a late kickball game so I got to go to Whole Foods for a salad instead of grabbing a protein bar at Trader Joe's. I opted for guacamole instead of salad dressing, but the guacamole was stupidly spicy for me so I ended up eating around that and leaving a bunch of the salad behind.

Snack: (snack? Whatever.) I had a beer at the bar.

On the upside, we're now 2-0 and I got to play catcher and didn't screw it all up. Go me!

    emoticon I'm sorry. It's so hard to lose people we love, and hard to make good choices when we are used to being comforted by food.

    My heart sympathizes with you. I lost my baby sister to cancer and 6 months later my beloved father to a heart attack. But well done on keeping it know that's what they would tell you if they could. Your food blogs are fabulous and give me ideas when I'm blank.

    You are doing the best you can and it's totally ok to be emotional. I'm always impressed at how much love comes across when you talk about Ali. You are a really, really good friend.
    I'm glad you were able to still make good decisions food-wise.
