Dinner: here is where the trouble set in. I had a wonderful evening planned catching up with college friends at a nice restaurant that has a patio and loves the King pup. I left work at 5:30 for a 6pm reservation- so I power walked the 1.5mile trek from work to the restaurant, with King in tow. I am not sure if it was the anxiety of being late, the salad with extra radishes for lunch, or both factors combined-- but I had a soul-crushing gas bubble lodged directly under my right lung for the entire dinner. I could barely concentrate on anything but how I was going to breathe without falling over in pain. Thus, the dinner ended early and KBW escorted me home to make sure I was OK once the gas-x took effect (Thanks K!). It did and I was restored back to normal by 9:30pm! At this point I was hungry. All I ate at the restaurant was a glass of red wine (6oz), maybe half an ounce of chicken, and a few pieces of broccoli and string beans. I was especially mindful of my food consumption during the day so that I could eat out and enjoy myself- so I consulted my pantry and decided that I had all the ingredients for homemade chocolate chip heath bar cookies (TE's favorite)!
I ate 3 cookies (~300cal) and a glass of milk (83c) for dinner and it was wonderful! The most difficult thing was not eating all the cookie dough!
Who would have thought you can do CR and eat cookies for dinner? Having days like this make it possible for me to do CR and enjoy it. I never feel like I am deprived. It is great :)

Oh, that sounds awful (the pain, not the cookies). I'm so sorry!!

I can totally see you toting the King down the street in the power walk. It was kind of warm yesterday.

And I have to say, good percentage of your nutrients covered AND cookies for dinner...that is like nirvana! :)
