So I really haven't been doing a lot of cooking lately, and have instead focused on eating. Two days ago I stepped on the scale and saw good news looking back at me so I behaved stupidy.

Lunch and breakfast weren't too evil.

First a 40 minute ellipical session then cottage cheese with some blueberries and cereal for breakfast, great. Leftover tuna burger for lunch (it was even better the next day, even Boyfriend agreed!!) and I was still doing pretty well. But then...then I headed home and as I walked I could feel a craving coming on. Damn you, hormones! I came home and had so many snacks I am ashamed to even admit it. I had everything from chips and salsa to fruits to chocolate. =( 

I tried to make up for it with a trip to hot yoga, but I think that by the time I had finished dinner, I had sealed the deal on a day of poor eating hygeine. Oh but dinner! I gotta tell you, I had been skeptical of vegan food for years and years, much to the chagrin of my vegan friend, but THIS place, V-note, was amazing. Expensive, but amazing. I had a pistachio and pepper dusted tofu with a crepe filled with root vegetables on top of some sort of heavenly mushroomy lemony sauce. Crusting tofu! What an idea! I guess maybe the black sesame seeds wont go to waste after all. 

This is turning out to be a really boring blog post but as I'm stuck in the hospital tonight, I have nothing better to do but blog. 

Today: Egg and salsa omelet on a smart bagel (these ARE smart! 100 calories, all the taste of a bagel but thinner) plus a handul of frosted mini wheats, then the leftover tofu and crepe for lunch. LOTS of snacks (including-not together-cheese, dried mango, clementines, chocolate and jelly beans....seriously if I have to keep admitting this, I am going to stop doing it!). Still no regrets there because the prospect of dinner is growing dimmer and dimmer as my call night goes longer and longer. Still hoping for a trip to the gym but that's not looking so great either.

Sigh, I'm signing off, hoping for a reasonable evening.

    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.
