4-Hour Body: Day 11

Weird chili time
I started the day off, a sick day, with some good old cheating. It was probably the last day those leftovers would be edible, and that curry was so good, it seemed wrong to let it go to waste.

Breakfast: leftover prawn curry with rice; coffee

Lunch: E3Live; leftover savory green smoothie from yesterday. The redeeming feature of this otherwise depressing smoothie (which I decided to try in order to avoid consuming sugar-laden fruits) is the spiciness from the peperoncini, a hot pepper that I have to continually keep Googling to make sure I am spelling it right.

Snack: handful of white mulberries from Ayoub's; half an avocado with Worchestershire sauce

Dinner: some kind of chili, I guess? Made of onions, garlic, jalapeño, tomato, food-processed cauliflower and broccoli, mixed beans and Yves Italian veggie ground round

Dessert: handfuls of white mulberries and roasted pistachios from Ayoub's

How I Cheated: I ate rice. And I guess those mulberries qualify as fruit. I also haven't exercised in a while but I blame this on being sick.

What's Gonna Happen? I think this diet is actually working. Old pairs of jeans seem to fit better. (This is basically how I measure my weight.) But I can't keep up this depressing vegetable and bean charade forever. I think what I will try to do is to eat this way four times a week, and the rest of the time, I will still usually try to eat healthy of course, but won't deny myself delicious white things such as bread, rice and spaghetti. I will also try to choose wine over beer more often. In fact I suspect beer drinking has been the main culprit in my weight gain over the past couple of years. I blame Jay and his microbrews.
