Today wasn't good. I hate holidays and how perfectly they work as a convenient excuse for me to eat poorly.
I had 2 kiwifruits in the morning.
Along with some cottage cheese and raw spanish peanuts. Fruit, raw nuts and cottage cheese work really well for me, because I don't ever really crave any of those things. They're safe foods to keep around the house because I know I won't binge on them no matter how hungry I get.
It fell off the rails from there. I had a quarter pounder and a small fry. Then later I had a corn dog. Then later I had a roast beef sandwich. A little under 2,000 calories total, I think. Or a little over. Thereabouts.
The quarter pounder was a direct result of a trailer for From Paris With Love. In it, John Travolta talks about a "royale with cheese", which is what his character in Pulp Fiction (one of my all-time favorites) ordered from McDonald's in France. They call it a royale because no one over there understands the metric system.
Product placements and advertising for shitty food, it really owns me.
That and I've just been feeling really abnormally miserable lately. I'm just miserable all the time and the only thing that will improve my mood is really terribly shitty food.
I always cover the previous day with these blog entries. At the time I'm writing this one, Saint Valentine's Day has already passed, and in terms of food it was a little worse than this one. So be prepared for that.
I really enjoyed the kiwifruit. And I just learned it's an excellent source of Vitamin K.
I bought some organic bananas and fresh mango. Gonna keep trying new fruits.
I'm really disappointed in myself.
