I really want chocolate! And tea!!
I woke up feeling a slight "food in throat" issue, but this grew into "heartburn" (not so much burning as a clenched feeling, slight gnawing in my throat). This is the pattern -- wake up, feel "the usual" FIT, ten minutes later, I feel worse. I am definitely hungry.
Breakfast -- 6:30 AM
1 Wheetabix square
1 C. almond milk
1/4 C. raisins
1 graham cracker
-- I eat the same thing every morning, with slight variation (different cereal, different fruit). I don't mind this one bit.
Snack -- 10:00 AM
1 Nature Valley Oat & Honey granola bar
8 oz. Poland Spring water
11:13 AM -- gnawing feeling in stomach/esophagus (I think I am getting more savvy at "feeling" the source of the gnawing, rather than the "referred" pain -- or maybe I just think I am.) I am hungry and looking forward to lunch. Feeling a little stressed out with many projects in front of me.
Snack -- 11:30 AM
1 Mott's Natural Applesauce cup
-- I ate this to stave off hunger before lunch and to get rid of slight nausea and grinding stomach. (It worked.)
Lunch -- 12:10 PM
Amy's Veggie Loaf meal -- I had the low-sodium version, with 340mg sodium. I am a real Amy's Foods aficianado. Like this blogger.
-- I felt great while eating this, and aside from the ever-present FIT sensation, minutes later, I feel pretty good. Ready for part two of the work day!
Snack -- 2:00 PM
1 Nature Valley granola bar (the rest of the pack from this morning)
Snack -- 2:30 PM
4 sugar plums (from the greenmarket)
Snack -- 4:15 PM
1 small Delicious apple
-- Worried about being hungry before dinner as I am attending a late meeting; I don't want to succumb to the leftover pizza in our conference room!
Snack -- 7:30 PM
Seltzer with lemon and lime
Dinner -- 8:30 PM
Bean Curd with Basil and brown rice on the side (Brooklyn restaurant)
-- The subway was flooded last night, making my commute home long and arduous. I had to take an alternate route and this led to me eating out. I met J. and we went to our favorite Thai restaurant. I was worried eating so late would give me agita but I had no concerns. I had two sips of J.'s Coke before realizing I am not having any caffeine on the elimination diet. Whoops.
Dessert -- 9:15 PM
1 C. strawberry ice cream (Breyer's)
