Today I bring you a few mid-test period observations:
- Laying your stop watch on the table during a lunch out with friends will make the entire table uncomfortable.
- Timing your dinner during a date is inappropriate.
- So far this method is...working! Check out each meal below for the actual (rounded) eating times for a glimpse of the action.

This morning I went on a 30-minute run at working pace followed by a short 15-minute cool down walk with L. After work I hit the gym for a 60-minute kickboxing class. I just started kickboxing and love it - nothing relieves stress like slamming a bag with your fists while dripping in sweat. I finished the day with a 10-minute walk with pup when I returned home.
Pre-workout I had 1/2 banana, 1/2 mug of black coffee, and 1 pint of water. For breakfast I had a bowl of Kashi GoLean Original mixed with Post Great Grains Raisin, Date, & Pecan cereal, 1/2 sliced banana, and almond milk. Breakfast eating time: 24 minutes.
Although I try to stay away from processed food, sometimes it is necessary. Most frozen entrees are fantastic on top of a bed of greens. This adds bulk to what tend to be less than filling meals and adds vegetables to what would otherwise be a veggie-light lunch.
Dinner was pasta with sun-dried tomato pesto and sauteed chicken alongside roasted eggplant and red peppers (roasted in oil, salt, and pepper at 450 for 20 minutes, flipping halfway through). Dinner eating time: 19 minutes.
