A day in the tummy.

The actual tummy. (What did you think I meant the womb? A day of what Thing does in there? I have absolutely no clue what Thing does in there. Nor would I like a window.) Continuing with the food theme, today I'm going to list every single thing I consume, as I consume it. I’m curious if there are some major food groups missing, and I know I’m not drinking enough liquids, so this is an attempt to put the pressure on and eat healthy and identify places where I can do better.

It’s also an attempt to see what you see… the non-stop jokes about the amount of food I eat are red-flagging me that I’m a monster. And I imagine it’s only going to get worse! I'm like Animal from the muppets... Yadadadadaaa. Or maybe I should start yelling "FEE FIE FO FUM" when I lumber down the stairs, dust falling from the ceiling onto people's heads as they grab their children and scurry for cover.

I have coined some new terms (breakfast, lunchfast, lunch, linner, dinner...) and my team at work has caught on. The other day when I called in an order to Artu for sandwiches, they did not pass up the opportunity to take a few shots.

Nikki: Hi, can I place an order for take out?
Teammate: Here we go!
Nikki: Do you still have eggplant rollatinis? I don’t see them on the menu… Oh good.
Teammate: I’ll have 10 of those...
Nikki: Um, ONE of those please, and two porchetta paninis…
Teammate: Do you have a vat of pickles? I’ll pay any price. Can you load it in my car?
Nikki: And one veal parm panini. How long?
Team: *giggles*
Nikki: [hangs up.] I will not gratify you by putting down this ice cream and turning around and commenting on that childishness.

So I guess my team has noticed how much I eat. Also, is it me or have I actually changed the stock of the 7-11 next to my office? I swear they doubled their juice and cracker stock since I’ve been buying them out…

Hey I can’t help it if Thing wants! And what baby wants, baby gets. Thing’s Saturday menu:

- 8:00 a.m. pomegranite-blueberry popsicle
- 9:00 a.m. peach ginger tea with honey, fig newtons
- 10:30 a.m. oatmeal with a little sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon
- 1:00 p.m. gouda and triscuts
- 1:45 p.m. spaghetti with salt and pepper, tobasco pickles, glass of water
- 5:30 p.m. cornichons, pink lemonade
- 6:00 p.m. chicken nuggets, chips, pink lemonade
- 8:00 p.m. roasted turkey/stuffing/cranberry sauce sandwich on white bread, pasta salad, sausage and broccoli rabe, baked ziti bolognese, glass of water, peach nectar
- 9:30 p.m. mocha fudge ice cream
- 12:30 a.m. pink lemonade

And I'm done for the night! Going to bed happy and with a full belly...

amy said…
either you're eating too little for a pregnant lady or i'm eating too much for a non-pregnant one...

all of that sounds deeeeeeelish. and very similar to my daily diet. it's like all salt mixed with some tea and oatmeal. perfect!

haha let me assure you the quantities are impressive. I was thinking today prob wasn't the best day for this post because i had no food in the house because, well, i ate it all yesterday. but we restocked and then it got more interesting!

I kinda feel like this should be an ongoing section of the blog...once or twice a week? It makes me very hungry, hide your pickles! (and no, I'm not pregnant either :) )
Suzanne said…
Hmm Tobasco pickles are those any good?
BTW I love reading your Blog, I think reading it will get me thru until the end of the super long munday :)

Thanks Suz!! Tobasco pickles are SOOO GOOD. But I'm a big fan of salty/spicy/vinegary. I think I'm going to go get some pickles now...
