The "Farewell" Diet

2 Weeks of "Goodbye" Meals + 1 Coconut Cream Cake + 1 cancelled gym membership = Uh oh
I've inadvertently started a new diet. And, it's not pretty. It's called the, "I'm Moving in Three Days So I Need to Eat Up All This Random Stuff I Have" Diet. For example, the other day, I ate a peanut butter & jelly English muffin, a bag of microwave popcorn, frozen vegetables (thawed, of course), half a cup of yogurt (rationing), frozen blueberries, half a granola bar, and another peanut butter and jelly English muffin. I'm the Food Network's worst nightmare.

Fortunately, I get to supplement my new-found diet with the "Let's Go Out to Lunch Before You Leave" meals.* Those are my favorite. If I don't get greedy at lunchtime, then I can save half for dinner in lieu of miscellaneous frozen produce and PB&Js.

And, today was the cream of the crop, a triple-layer coconut cream cake from my wonderful co-workers. (As pictured above. Be jealous)

(Also, for the record, I did not eat all that cake myself. There were 20+ co-workers. I swear. I'm not that bad. Yet.)

So pretty much the bottom line is, no matter where I end up living in the DC area, I need to walk to work. And home. Even if it's from Virginia. And I need a farmers' market ASAP. 


* Although this post is lightheartedly about my bad eating habits of the moment, I do want to give shout outs to the incredible people who have made me feel loved and appreciated. I have the best friends and co-workers (who appreciate delicious food as much as I do.) Yesterday, my amazing friends hosted a brunch for me so I could see everyone before I leave. I'd have taken pictures but I was too busy stuffing my face with breakfast casserole. Good Lord, what's wrong with me. Enough with the food. I'm like a Dr. Phil episode on emotional eating.

  1. Loving your blog, Linds. Don't worry about the food, just think about all the trips back and forth to you car loading and unloading.
