What I ate: February 13, 2011

Breakfast: Homemade whole wheat bagel with 2.0 oz. lox, 1.0 oz. cream cheese, tomato and red onion.

Lunch: 2.8 oz. grilled chicken Caesar salad with Romaine lettuce and Drew's Caesar dressing and a very small amount of freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. And a homemade whole wheat and oat roll with Vermont Butter and Cheese company cultured butter. I apparently forgot to take a picture of it, but looked like this.

I think I might be getting sick with a cold. First time in at least a year, maybe two. I seem to crave junk food when I get sick, so I walked to grocery store to get, among other things, Pillsbury cinnamon rolls in the tube and Doritos, two items I don't think I've eaten since the last time I was sick!

Snack: 1.0 oz. Doritos. I couldn't resist. Incidentally, that's a package serving size and is 160 calories.

Dinner: A 6.0 oz. (before cooking) Maple Leaf Farms hamburger, rare to medium rare, Cabot cheddar cheese, 1 slice of Vermont Smoke and Cure bacon, tomato and lettuce. I grilled the burger earlier and froze it; I defrosted it and finished cooking it in the sous vide for 45 minutes at 133°F. It's really the only way to reheat a medium rare burger or steak without overcooking it. And 1.0 oz. Doritos and 1 glass of Tiasta Malbec.

And 1.0 oz. potato chips and dip.

Weight at beginning of the day: 110.2 lbs. Weight at the beginning of the next day: 112.0 lbs.
