Fruit salad with mango, papaya, pineapple, strawberries, and bananas. A parsley, carrot, celery, beets, apple, and pineapple drink.

For lunch today, I felt like salmon nigiri sushi. I went to the non-Japanese lunch box places and decided against raw fish. Then, I decided that it was a good idea to have some brown rice rolls. The box came with 4 pieces of 3 different kinds of rolls. One was eel avocado with teriyaki sauce, second was imitation crab with avocado, and the third was shrimp and avocade in spicy sauce.

It was surprisingly palpable, but it didn’t leave any sort of satiation. Yes, I feel a little bloated and I am definitely full. However, it isn’t an enjoyable feeling.


A while ago, my VP caught me eating a second lunch.

“Didn’t you just eat around noon?”

Me – It’s a second lunch, LEAVE ME ALONE!

“Ack. No judgment…”


Today I just had a delightful lunch of a LARGE vegetarian chilli and small thing of asparagus, cranberry chutney, and Gorgonzola wrapped in smoked turkey. Then my CEO walks in to ask my cubicle section what they want from the menu, he’s buying.

Sigh. And I did the unthinkable… and turned him down. : ( Why didn’t he tell us before I went out to buy lunch?

I am trying to be a better eater.

Imagine, “Shit it’s all ready 5 o’clock!” being sung over and over again… whilst my Boss creeping up behind me, like “Are you talking to yourself?”

An important function of my department is the messages that are deployed on Thursday. This in a large part requires my work… and thus has become a source for some anxiety. This is normal, however, the part that actually frustrates me is that things that are supposedly set, change.

They change on Wednesday.

So, I have almost completely given up hope of finishing ahead of schedule.

Today isn’t so bad and there SHOULDN’T BE ANYTHING THAT CHANGES. The thing is, I don’t know if that means anything. ; )

Of course, cake during the course of the day changes the whole dynamic. Unfortunately, today is also a 0 day for Umi.

Edit (2:06pm): It wasn’t that bad at all, and most of it was done in the morning…

Umi has two states.
1 = CAKE!!!
0 = no cake!!!! >.< waah. Yesterday, Umi=1 Today, Umi!=1 and Furthermore, Umi=0 Today is a gray day… This is why it is snowing here.

I’ve mentioned this before, but my mother never enforced good eating in the home. She would give me Pepperidge Farm 3 layer chocolate cake (which is delicious – I still have a soft spot for it) for breakfast. In fact, cake was a constant in my home.

So… sometimes I miss the memo that it isn’t good to have four slices of cake.

Co-worker Chris: Soon we’re going to be, who’s the new hire? (Why does she have a double chin?)
