Breakfast: Clif energy bar, some lunchmeat as I was making my lunch.

Lunch: Sandwich (whole wheat sandwich thins, chicken, ham, pepperjack cheese, bell pepper, onion, lettuce, mustard), grape tomatoes, Chex Mix, yogurt pretzels.

Snack: Study break time again.  This week it was a creamsicle popsicle.  Then when I got back to my apartment complex, they were having some kind of party thing, so I had some meatballs, cheese, and crackers.

Dinner: The last of my leftover pizza and cheesesticks with ranch dressing, Mike’s margarita.

Breakfast: Apple, peanut butter, milk.

Lunch: Salad (spinach, romaine, grilled chicken, bell pepper, onion, grape tomatoes, pine nuts, feta, dijon-balsamic vinaigrette)

Dinner: The last of my shakshuka, with some toasted sandwich thins instead of pita.

Snack: One Dove caramel chocolate, whole wheat tortilla chips, salsa, and pepperjack cheese.

Breakfast: Clif Builder’s bar.

Lunch: “Veggie Platter” from the place near my lab–baba ganoush, hummus, grape leaves, Greek salad, and pita.  Yum.  Trying to get into tea, so I also got some rooibos tea.  Eh.  So far the only type I’ve liked is Earl Grey.

Dinner: Apartment complex had a cookout.  I got a burger, potato salad, chips, and Mountain Dew.

Snack: Whole wheat tortilla chips, red pepper hummus, pepperjack cheese.

Exercise: Health Habits, Week 17, Day 1.  (Same as last week.)

Late night, so I didn’t get to this until now.

Dessert: Three Dove caramel chocolates.

Exercise: None–I skipped martial arts class to work on schoolwork.

Breakfast: Nada.  I don’t usually get up early enough on weekends to eat breakfast.

Lunch: Salad (spinach, romaine, bell pepper, mushrooms, onion, pine nuts, parmesan, dijon-balsamic vinaigrette), broccoli with red pepper hummus, and two egg yolks from my latest attempt at hard boiled eggs, that turned out more soft-boiled.  Ugh.  Guess I should stick with the first method I tried.

Snack: More broccoli and red pepper hummus, some whole wheat tortilla chips.

Dinner: Another craving night–I got pizza and cheesesticks with ranch and marinara.  Drank a Coke with it–but it was the kind made from real sugar instead of HFCS.

Exercise: Health Habits workout, Week 16, Day 3.  (He didn’t post an updated link, but it’s the same as last week’s workout.)  Lost count on superset 2, so I’m not completely sure how many sets I did–somewhere between 8 and 10.

Breakfast: Clif energy bar.

Snacks: Sample of spicy peanut brittle in the morning at the Farmers’ Market (not much there–it starts for real next weekend, and I can’t wait), sample of cracker and some type of spread in the afternoon while I was grocery shopping.

Lunch: Leftover shakshuka with some croissant-type bread, red pepper hummus with whole wheat tortilla chips.

Dinner: Satisfied another craving and had Chinese delivered–Hunan beef, fried rice, and an egg roll.  Also had a Mike’s margarita.

Dessert: Two Dove caramel chocolates and milk.

Breakfast: Just an apple, because I already knew I was going to have a bad for me lunch.

Lunch: Double cheeseburger, fries, and root beer from a local, kind of famous diner.  It’s even been on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives!

Dinner: Salad (spinach, romaine, grilled chicken breast, bell pepper, onion, grape tomatoes, feta, parmesan, pine nuts, dijon mustard and balsamic vinaigrette), sourdough bread with butter.

Dessert: Two Dove caramel chocolates.

Exercise: Health Habits workout, Week 16, Day 2.  Someone was already using the Smith machine, so I couldn’t do the bodyweight row.  I’m guessing that works the triceps, so I just did another triceps exercise in its place.

Breakfast: Apple and peanut butter.

Lunch: Sandwich (whole wheat sandwich thins, chicken, pepperjack cheese, onion, lettuce, mustard), broccoli and red pepper hummus.

Dinner: Went to the monthly meeting of a student organization I’m in, and dinner was provided.  Had a salad (lettuce, chicken, tomato, black olives, carrots, cheese, some kind of nut/seed, don’t know exactly what, and honey mustard dressing), a peanut butter cookie, half a chocolate chip cookie, and half an oatmeal raisin cookie.

Exercise: Got back from the meeting too late to go to martial arts tonight, so I went to my apartment complex’s gym and did an HIIT-sort of workout on the exercise bike.  10 minutes of steady pedaling, followed by 10 minutes of 10 and 15 second sprints, and then 10 more minutes of steady pedaling.

Breakfast: Greek yogurt with peaches, Clif power bar.

Lunch: Winter squash soup (all butternut squash) topped with parmesan cheese.

Snack: My apartment complex had a “Spa Day,” so I went.  Had two smallish oatmeal raisin cookies, fruit, and lemonade.  Later had some broccoli and red pepper hummus as I was cooking dinner, because my stomach was starting to eat itself and I couldn’t wait any longer.

Dinner: Shakshuka!  (Although I used sourdough bread instead of pita.)  Verdict:  Not bad.  I doubt I’ll crave it, but I’ll definitely make it again some day.

Exercise: Health Habits workout, Week 16, Day 1.  Maybe it was my imagination, but it seemed a little easier today.
