I had failed to get a routine set of blood tests before my m.d. visit, so I went to the appointment hours early, groan. They were doing cholesterol in all its glory and wanted it fasting (not all docs do). But, since I last knew, they've cut down on staff, and no lab person there. So, I read a book. I had a frozen apple torta in a Target plastic bag for after the test, making me look fetching, and a good book to read.
As time goes by, I get hungrier, but less inclined for the ninth frozen package of the apple torta I made, which was too sweet in the first place. I craved a juicy hamburger.
More time went by. Got seen, I even lost weight - my home scale reads high, so I showed up at 148.8, a number I haven't seen for many a day. Makes me think less may be possible - in the good old days, I weighed something like 123 - 133. In the meantime, I'm thrilled with 148.8.
Vial taken by lab tech later. (Ah, lab techy memories..)
So, getting out of there, I was ravenous. So ravenous that I went to Spinns before I went grocery shopping. I'm not Spinns' biggest fan, but I like the people there a lot.
So, what do I do? I order breaded fish with mashed potatoes.
I know better than this. Breaded fish here in Abq is a visit to small concrete slabs with foul interiors. What was I thinking. Plus they must've been out of mashed potatoes, thus I got fries. And I declined a salad since I was already splurging for the fish stones and I love mashed potatoes.
* How to count calories? 1/4 breaded fish with most of the coating removed. 1/4 order french fries w/tartar sauce.
Got home, poured a drink. Looked at thread about Noddy's health. Poured another one.
* Glass filled with ice with finger of rum and top of chocolate milk, x 2.
* Later, two small dishes of braised beef in braising juice w/ some veggies. Ok, now that was actually delicious.
