Day 1: Calorie Counting Sucks - Hobbit Diet

5 Thoughts

  • Calorie counting and logging food SUCKS. So much. Sure, the app helps. But hot dang!
  • Finding food to nibble on SEVEN times a day takes a lot more energy than expected. Thank goodness my desk is well stocked.
  • I don’t think I got a chance to feel hungry except for that gap between Tea and Dinner. Then again…
  • …I rode my bike to and from work today. The ride home was brutal with the Santa Ana wind blowing into my face all the way home…on a beach cruiser. Longest mile and a half ever!
  • And now my sinus is killing me. That’s just great.

Today’s Photo/Video


111 lb.

I totally missed the morning weigh-in so I just did it right now.


Honey Bunches of Oats with fresh blueberries and whole milk.

And a few sips of coffee before I forgot it was there…

Second Breakfast

A handful of heirloom cherry tomatoes


A wedge of Laughing Cow Light French Onion and 2 stone ground wheat crackers.

While my other “meals” seems to be more of a snack, I’m trying to make Elevensies more substantial.


Chicken thigh from Braised Chicken with Baby Artichokes.

I tested the recipe on my coworkers today. Heehee.

Afternoon Tea

A can of Fanta and a Mandarin orange


A SPAM musubi, one Hawaiian barbecue spare ribs, and a few leaves of cabbage. Oh also a bottle of Angry Orchard traditional dry.


Two Girl Scout short bread cookies and a sip of whole milk


ETA: For those who just now joined in, here’s why I’m going on “The Hobbit Diet” of eating seven times a day for a month.

    Absolutely had to stop by and comment because you are committed to this Hobbits thing. Hang in there on the app — it truly does get easier. I couldn’t stand it and wanted to ditch it immediately, but it actually pays off. Well, except for the part where you stop doing it and then have to make a habit all over again. Elevensies are my favorite part of the day. 😀
