Ship’s Log–January 3rd, 2015


Today is the last day of holiday revelry. I promise. Tomorrow I’m going to get rid of all the leftover cookies. There is still some gourmet candy I received in my stocking that I’m going to save for a weekly treat, but that’s it. No more Mrs. Cookie Face. I bet I’ll be right bitchy tomorrow when I realize that means I can’t have cookies with my post-lunch coffee, but it has to be done sometime,

Distance to goal weight: 24 pounds

Morning Snack:

  • Chocolate mint tea


  • Panini: whole wheat bread, pesto, slice tomato, vegan pepperoni, and Daiya provolone

  • Dirty Diet Dr. Pepper
  • Soy milk chocolate drink (a friend had given me a specialty kit for Christmas, and we tried out a chocolate drink with corn meal, annatto, black pepper, and chili sweetened with a little honey. I don’t think we got the proportions correctly, as you can see above it was more foamy milk than chocolate, though we followed the directions faithfully. Next time, I’m going to use double the chocolate)
