Today wasn't so bad!
Breakfast: The day started off with...oatmeal and a hard boiled egg. SHOCKING! (no photo because it looked like a bowl of oatmeal.) I almost skipped breakfast because plain, flavorless oatmeal isn't very exciting, and in a way I think it makes me hungrier...

I'm extremely lucky to have a full kitchen at work. I know this is not normal. Gosh, some people don't even have kitchens in their homes (SROs, motels etc.) and rely on hot plates and microwaves. I think this lunch turned out pretty good. It didn't really taste like fried rice though, it reminded me of matzo brei...go figure! I did add some soy sauce from a packet which I didn't buy but found in a drawer.
|Snack: apple w/ plain yogurt|
While the Hunger Challenge isn't always fun, I'm enjoying the amount of attention I'm putting into my food. It's nice to think about food as fuel again and really appreciate how lucky I am to have unlimited access to food every day. Once again, I spent almost an hour making my dinner. I'm gonna guess most people do not have the time or know-how to do this. I didn't get a chance to eat dinner until around 9 pm either. I can't imagine working all day, especially if it wasn't a desk job but a job that involved more physical activity, only to have to come home and cook for an hour. I hope I can remember this grateful feeling even after the Hunger Challenge is over.
Also, can I just say "God Bless the Internet" because not only was I able to find the exact scene from Supersize me that I wanted but I'm also able to cue it up to my FAVORITE part of the entire documentary. Nothing. NOTHING. NOOTTTHIIING is better than the oh-so-quiet way this boy says sausage. And every time I want to say sausage I think of him.
