Lessons Learned:
That afternoon snack of carrot sticks really helped me to not be starving when I got home from work. Also I learned a couple of things about tofu: 1) It tastes like whatever I marinate it in. I marinated it in lemon juice and pepper for 2 days. 2) I can cook it! But I still have no clue how to keep it in cube form. It ended up looking like scrambled eggs. But it tasted good! I also learned that I will forget my vitamin if not concentrating on it. I will put the vitamins in a prominent spot today to help myself remember to take it.

Today's plan? The exact same thing as yesterday except it will be leftovers from last night's tofu meal for dinner instead of fresh. That was just such a satisfying and delicious day that I think it deserves a repeat.

I know what you mean about the vitamin. I keep the bottle on our bathroom sink, prominently on display. I've learned it has to go directly from the bottle to my mouth. I think there's at least one old vitamin in every pants pocket and bag I own. Not joking.
