    9am: Half cup of black coffee.
    12:30: Half of my salad (mixed greens, zucchini, tomato, red onion, garlic, olive oil and balsamic) and some fried fish left overs that I got from home. Turns out it wasn't very much because I was still hungry. 2 eggs.
    4pm: 1 egg and 3 tablespoons of ground flax seed with cinnamon
    6pm: Rest of my salad with 2 more eggs.
    10pm: Hungry again after class: salmon burger patty with a tomato. Cup of almond milk and half cup of coconut milk.

    WOD: Rest. Could not wake up early this morning. Was super tired throughout the day despite getting 8 hours of sleep. Could it be my body is drained on energy because it used it to process the cake and cream puffs I ate on Saturday?

    9/20/11
    7:30am: Half cup of black coffee
    12:30am: Leftover stir-fry medley from mom: tofu, mushroom, squash, cauliflower, squid, garlic. Sampled 2 cubic inches of cheese while grocery shopping. 2 eggs.
    5pm: 1/2 cup coconut milk with cinnamon. When I had very little left, I mixed it with cocoa powder and it turned into pudding!
    6pm: Mom's mooncake with whole egg yolk inside [Treat 1 of 3].
    8:30pm: Snap peas, fried shrimp, smoked salmon with capers and red onions. Another 1/2 cup of coconut milk. 2 tablespoons of almond butter with 15 pistoles of Guittard unsweetened dark chocolate.

    WOD: Rest.

    On a side note, I bought a red onion while grocery shopping during lunch but somehow managed to lose it en route to my kitchen. I wonder who profited from my 18 cent onion. I want it back! I also got 2lbs of jalapeno peppers for 99c from the bargain produce shelf and now I need to use them all up. Thought about making primal jalapeno poppers but I'm lactose intolerant and cream cheese has a surprising amount of lactose in it, for being a cheese. Maybe I'll sub the cream cheese for avocado or scrambled eggs...

    9am: Half cup of black coffee.
    12:30: Half of my salad (mixed greens, zucchini, tomato, red onion, garlic, bell peppers, olive oil and balsamic) and the rest of the fried fish left overs that I got from home. It was mostly bone so I was not satisfied.
    3pm: 3 tablespoon ground flax seed with cinnamon.
    6pm: Rest of my salad and 2 salmon burger patties.
    10pm: 1/2 cup of coconut milk with frozen berries. 11 almonds. 40 pistoles of Guittard unsweetened dark chocolate [Treat 2 of 3]. 2 tablespoons of almond butter.

    WOD: Rest.

    Midterm in class after work today. After the midterm, I checked my MCAT score. Not as high as I would've hoped for but still pretty darn good. I realized that if I don't eat enough for lunch, then I will be hungry again after class.

    Uggh, been knocked out from a fever these past couple of days. Tried my best to stay on course.

    9/27/11
    12pm: Salad! Lettuce, tomato, onion, garlic, bell peppers, zucchini, 1 salmon burger patty. Couldn't finish my salad...should've been a sign that something was wrong.
    5pm: Got picked up by boyfriend early from work and he wanted to get some Vik's Chaat for dinner to go. Fever was developing at this point so I just had bhatura cholle for dinner and counted it as my treat. [Treat 2 of 3].


    9/28/11
    Sick all day. Stayed home from work. Intermittedly napped throughout the day.
    11am: Had left over cholle because was still in no mood to prepare food.
    1pm: Don't know what got into me but took a bite of Mexican drinking chocolate and it was gross. 10 pistoles of Guittard 100% chocolate to get the taste out of my mouth.
    4pm: Boyfriend brought back a cream puff from Pacific Puffs. Sick Jasmina gobbled it down and enjoyed it. [Treat 3 of 3]
    8pm: Finally felt better enough to prep some food. Roasted zucchini, onion, tomato with some garlic and baked 2 cod fillets. Was able to eat all of it! Horray for the return of the appetite.


    PS. I weighed myself morning of 9/27 and if my eyes fooled me not, 133lb showed on the scale! Yay progress! I'm going to set 2 week weigh ins so daily fluctuations do not get me down. This will be a good motivator for me: hard numbers that show improvement every 2 weeks!

    Feel a lot better from yesterday but still not 100%. Boss told me that if I felt sick at all then I'm staying at home so I ended up taking another day off work. The rest was much needed.
    11am: Left over roasted zucchini, onion, tomato, with garlic and a HUGE salmon steak. 1/2 tablespoon of almond butter.
    2pm: 22 almonds
    4:30pm: 2 eggs, some zucchini. Tried to eat before going to teach but food was too hot.
    9pm: Done teaching early because today was a midterm day so finished my sauted zucchini, onion, and bell peppers.
