Ship’s Log–February 9th, 2015


I give today a solid B+. Food was mostly good, though I probably should have said “No Thanks” when Thing 2 offered me those potato chips to go with my burger. I did manage a big salad, lots of beans, and two solid servings of fruit (or three, I guess, if you include the dates).

The evening’s classes went well. I made a batch of almond date balls with dark cocoa powder and coconut shreds, sort of like raw brownies, to fuel up with rather than the Snickers bars I used the last week. They are still dense bites of sugar and fat, but from unrefined sources rather than all the corn syrup and partially hydrogenated oils in the candy bar. I could have handled classes being a bit more intense, in fact, as I still had energy left by the end of the second one.
