Day 20 Son of DDDY Challenge: 3/5ths of a Pound Down and Still With the Wheeze, Anime-watching Day, and Now my Ears are Getting Stuffed Up!

Tanita-san's reckoning: 241.4

Yes, down after a day of holding. Yes! And that's after having a huge bowl of pasta and veggies yesterday (2 cups of pasta with 2.5 cups of veggies all in one bowl.) Yummy.

So close to teh 230s. It's making me eager.

Anyway, fine on water and calories yesterday.  Carbs should have been higher and fats lower, but still, not bad.

Was watching some anime stuff I needed to get caught up on (ie, some stuff I've been wanting to watch and never got around to). Both of the OVA follow-ups to the excellent brief anime series, HIGASHI NO EDEN (Eden of the East). Watched our adorable Taki-kun do his thing in the fascinating Noblesse Oblige game of the "Selected" saviors of Japan. Love how Taki handled it. If you haven't seen the series or the f/u films (King of Japan and Paradise Lost), its a very nicely done anime.

Also tried out the first episode of Togainu no Chi (based on a boy love--ie, homosexual--manga, methinks), violent sorta futuristic boy-fighting thing. The black-leather-clad dude in black with the vampirish red eyes and the black-sword was hot, but I don't think I'll be watching much more. Caught up with the latest episode of BAKUMAN, a school/life teenager-protagonists anime that has a very charming, sweet and sometimes comical heart about two 15 year olds who decide to become mangaka (write a successful manga) that will become an anime by the time they turn 18. The goal is tied up to a subtle romance. The romance drives the passion of the artist teen while personal adventure and pride drives the writer-teen. Very nice anime. it's cool watching them become partners and pals.

Watching those uber-skinny Japanese characters makes one wanna stay on plan, I tell ya! (Although I've yet to see a skinnier protagonist than Watanuki from xxxHolic.)

So, anyway, caved and took a dose of Sudafed cause my ears are stuffing up. Ick. Hate that sensation. The allergy-asthma fest here continues. I'm gonna wanna die in exercise session tomorrow. Should have cancelled. REally should have.

Anyway, food log:


Pretty much same as yesterday, excepts mushrooms in the omelette instead of tomato and a tangerine into the mix to make up for only having 1/2 cup of papaya left.

LUNCH: Hubby wants Mexican, so we're hitting a small local place with authentic of our faves. I ordered soup and a "tulum salad" which has marinated chicken breas and organic greens and corn, black beans, tomatoes. I nixed the tortilla chips and cheese this time.
Yeah, had the Mexican: Sopa de aguacate (chicken broth with some shredded chicken, pico de gallo, and avocado pieces), 1 taco al pastor, half of the tulum grilled chickens salad with 1 tbsp of the cilantro-peanut dressing, 1/2 cup refried beans and 1/4 cup Mexican rice, with 1/4 cup pico de gallo on top.

Gay anime?
Sounds as good as anything!

Yay! Roll on 230's!

Just wondering if you feel any different eating more carby? Maybe it's too soon to tell. I had some pasta yesterday and found that it definitely didn't suit me but maybe that's because I'm not having enough calories to sustain myself unless it's protein heavy.

Anne, if you like anime with gay relationships you might wanna check out Junjou Romantica. Hilarious. Misaki cracks me up so bad. He's the love interest of a famous male author, but Misaki just makes my day. I read the manga just to crack up. You can see it free online at like Veoh and a couple other sites. Togainu is pretty violent and I suspect won't be romantic at all.

Beth, I really didn't feel bad at all. I always loved me pasta. I thought it might open up my appetite, that was my fear, but it didn't.

I am not a real anime fan -
But I'm learning to like it...
I don't even watch tv -
Just an interesting combination
I had never heard of!
