I woke up several times last night and was both hungry and tired when I got up this morning. Firworks were being blasted all around me during the night which led to a very disturbed sleep.
I went right for the toasted cheese.
2 slice rye .20
1 oz. cheddar .39
1 small pot coffee .25
Two figs .48
It takes so little to reach 1.32
And while the coffee helped I see a nap in my future as tonight may be worst than last night with the noise.
Maybe it is because it is the 4th of July but I suddenly had a craving for potato chips. I eat them upon rare occasion with a sandwich; not often because of the calories.
I went trotting down to my local Safeway to see if it was an affordable addition to my diet. Ruffles were on sale 2 bags for 5.00, but the manager said I could get one at 2.50. I looked at the weight 5 ounces. That would be over 7.50 a pound.
I could not justify 7.50 a pound for a few potatoes. Nothing I cane eat right now can come in at 7.50 a pound. Wow those companies must make a fortune.
Tired makes me hungry so I had 1/2 oz of cheddar.
367 calories so far.
I need a nap sooner rather than later.
I woke up hungry. Before hitting the gym (yes even on July 4th) I made a small batch of zucchini tempura .60 and an iced tea .03.
A 63 cent lunch is a good thing,and it satisfied my craving for fried salt.
I got an e mail this afternoon with a LONG conversation from the datalounge about how the members of this site would subsist on 3.66. There were some very good ideas and I was happy to see some of these gentlemen had decided to take the challenge themselves. He did not include a link to my site so this is being spread on it's own. That makes me very happy.
While I am still tired (nothing to do with the diet, and everything to do with the fireworks) I am off to lift some heavy things.
I took a nap. Finally rest, and I woke up hungry. I made a pizza with some of the quasi puttanesca and a little jack cheese.
Iced Tea .03
Later I went to a friend's to see the fireworks from his roof and had a little wine and a few peanuts.
I need to make more of an effort to get some C and E from my foods. I also think that I need some more calories.
1,291 for the day. 3.43 was my money total and since I was starting with 4.16 I can carry over 73 cents.
