Amish donuts were almost my demise!
Friday, November 01, 2013
Well, narrowly avoided plunging off the deep end after a lapse in nutrition judgment this morning. After realizing I was out of eggs and then running out of time, I somehow managed to leave the house without eating anything more for breakfast than black coffee, which I never do. By the time my brother and I made it to the farmers market/flea market, I was hungry, and after walking around in the wind and cold for a couple hours I was ravenous. One of the buildings was filled with the aroma of fresh, warm donuts and we were quickly lured to the stand where Amish girls were serving up homemade donuts and fritters fresh from the fryer to an insanely long line of eager customers. Before we knew it we were in that line and then I had a huge, warm, crisp maple-glazed on the outside, cakey-goodness on the inside, plate of delicious homemade fried dough in my hands, and then it was gone. Inhaled. I went from ravenous to full satisfaction to guilt and then to major sugar crash! The rest of the day I had no energy and had major cravings, but after multiple struggles i managed to salvage the day and make it through on my remaining 600 calories, but it wasn't exactly fun. Plain tuna with hot peppers on spinach for lunch, and big salad with plain venison burger for dinner (no bread, cheese, or condiments, and none of the homemade Mac n cheese or baked beans for me). Final stats for the day: 1291 calories, 135g carbs, 57g fat, and 76g protein. Not bad considering how close I was to plunging off into weekend of gluttony. Yay for saving the day! Now to never do that again!
