Today a GUY friend of mine saw and read (skimmed?) the blog. I wont use a nickname for him unless he continues to come up, in which case I'll consult with him before putting it up. Also today, a friend of mine, lets call her Z (well everyone calls her Z, but for the purposes of anonymity it will do) emailed me a recipe for Turkey Hash. I presume the idea was for me to put it up on my site? I hope so, because here it is. I'm looking forward to trying it.

By the way, Z (a nurse) is a girlfriend of mine who is engaged to Rocket Scientist (mentioned in the recipe).

I'm definitely feeling pretty great about all this, despite this evenings upcoming boring post. In fact, it's such a boring post that I was going to skip it, but I'm motivated now.
Breakfast was a Dunkin Donuts Egg White Flatbread. Come on, did you think I'd be cooking ALL my meals? Like you, I don't spend my entire life in the kitchen! This was a full breakfast with coffee for <$5. Perfect if you're aiming to have something to do during a boring lecture other than....listen.

Here's a shot of my lunch: similar salad as the day before but sub beef tongue and kidney beans for turkey and feta. I don't blame you for thinking this is gross, but most people who try it wind up liking it so I'm standing by my tongue, damnit!
Also pictured: Tupperware of blueberries (thanks mom!) and my microscope (lunch at my desk today).
Not pictured: the many, many Jelly Belly Beans I also consumed between meals. Furthermore, I had a snack when I got home before heading to the gym/yoga. Ack!
This is getting out of hand. From now on I'm really going to take this seriously and actually take pictures of everything I eat. Hopefully, now that I have readers, I will not want to scare them away with 10,000 pictures of snacks and will simply snack less. Yes? Or am I just deluding myself?


Dinner after yoga (and a 2.5 mile run!) was a simple affair, but spruced up with a nice bouquet of flowers, my springtime favorites!

<---- <3 <3 <3 <3

Actually hot yoga tends to zap my appetite (though I still eat plenty....why??) so this small salad and grapefruit filled me up pretty nicely. Maybe it was the snacks that filled me up =(.

Salad: arugula, TJ's chopped veggies (serving #3), sliced/marinated/sauteed turkey breast (about the size of an iPhone), ginger-soy lite dressing and a handful of
raisin/cherry/cranberry mix.

Boyfriend even had salad today too though his was twice is big, twice as full of chopped veggies (#4!!), meat, topped with feta cheese, croutons and sunflower seeds (it was also probably twice as delicious!).

After dinner: Project Guilt-Free Guilty Food (GFGF?).
Tonight's mission: Trader Joes Triple Berry Bran Muffins. Weighing in at approximately 150 calories each (after the addition of a handful of my raisin/cherry/cranberry mix), this was a recipe I wasn't even going to tweak.

I am waiting for them to mature as I blog, but wont post the results of my labors until tomorrow morning.

Peace, I'm out.

    I'm a recent graduate from medical school and a pathology resident living in New York City. Like most girls living in the city, I've found that a lot of my social life revolves around the regular consumption of high-calorie food and alcoholic beverages. I've decided to start a blog about how I am trying to beat the bulge by eating and cooking defensively between social engagements and how even a busy girl can fit exercise into a busy life.
