Watching cars go by

There is a spot near work and the TD Garden that you can watch the cars drive onto the Zakim Bridge and out of the tunnel. I went there today on my lunch break.  The wind was blowing. The cars were whizzing by and I just stood their watching and thinking. It was a great place for me to clear my mind.  I was in a definite thinking mood today.


Maybe it was because I was basically alone at work and being alone brings it out. Maybe it is the pending ultrasound tomorrow. I don't know. I am worried about Dad.  He has not been doing so good lately. Something is not right with him. 


When I got home from work and knitting tonight, I found I got my blood results from the other day. My sedimentation rate westergren was high, which means inflation is present. It is probably related to my face.
The other blood work was fine. My glucose was fine and all the other stuff was in normal range.  


Today was my first full day of following the nutritionist's plan.  The plan basically is I get 6 servings of whole grains, 5+ of veggies, 3 of fruits, 8-9 of protein, 1-2 of milk & yogurt and 6 of fats.  There is a calorie range for each serving. I am to try to get 1,800 or less calories per day.   


Today, I got 1,685 per my notes. Not too bad. I wasn't really hungry.


Breakfast consisted of 1 cup of Stonyfield Farms fat free plain yogurt, 1 cup of defrosted blueberries with 1 teaspoon of honey. It was pretty good. I did not miss the cereal I usually put in. 





Purple goodness!














Lunch, was a whole wheat wrap with Trader Joe's Chipolte hummus, dill yogurt dip, spinach, tomatoes and it looked something like this.




This was my dinner from last night but I made one for lunch too.














Dinner was a Trader Joe's Chili Lime Chicken Burger with a piece of light Munster cheese, spinach, peppers and tomatoes with ketchup on a whole wheat wrap.  Pretty darn good. 


I am on a spinach kick lately. Are you hooked on anything lately? 




I was in a pretty funky mood. Not really down but not really content either.  Just there. I bottle up my emotions and that is what I am doing. 


Back to Food, Inc on PBS. Have a great night!


PS - Blogger in Draft's picture positioning is driving me crazy.  Any idea of how to fix it? The big holes in between pictures are not there when I type it out.
