Chillin, relaxin’, ain’t thinkin’ ‘bout no junk
Eatin’ my corn muffin, drinkin’ coffee from The Dunk
Every thing in the news makes me oh so suspicious,
But corn muffin and coffee equals crazy delicious!
Don’t ask me, I just transmit the stuff my brain tells me to write. It’s not like I’m in charge over here.
So, the whole exercising/weight loss thing. It’s going well, save for the actual loss of you know...weight. I know, a corn muffin from Dunkin Donuts isn’t exactly diet food, but I really have cut out a huge amount of fattening and sugary crap. I’ve had more fruit & vegetables this week than I have in the last year. I’ve had my last hurrah with cookies last week - from now on I’m not even going to buy them and “ration” them out. Just cut them altogether. I replaced ice cream with sorbet a few months ago, now I’m replacing sorbet with fresh and frozen fruit. I really am, this corn muffin aside, trying to change my entire way of looking at buying food.
Oh, the coffee. Yes, cream and sugar. I calculated it. It’s about 140 to 180 calories per giant serving that I drink. I drink a max of one per day, and some days none at all. The coffee stays. Period. I don’t care if Jesus himself comes down to tell me that it has to go. You, Jesus and anyone else that tries to take my coffee from me can just try, you bastards. I’ll cut you, I swear.
Anyway, today’s main meal will be (ultra-lean) pork kabobs, heavy on the veg and light on the pork, marinated in a herb/garlic marinade that is crazy low-fat. Last night was a very small and lean NY Strip and grilled asparagus. That grilled asparagus was just incredible. A light coating of garlic-infused canola oil (like a tablespoon for the whole bundle, most of which ended up burning off in the grill) and salt. That was it. I could have skipped the steak it was so good.
This leads me to a question - Why am I always hungry now? Not “yeah, I could eat” but really actually hungry? I haven’t been *actually* hungry in a long, long time. Now I wake up every day with a slight hungry feeling, and mere hours after I eat, I am hungry again. Is it removing a lot of fat and starch and meat that’s doing it? Are people who eat healthy (or healthier, anyway) always hungry? Or am I just a frigging pig?
