zondag 28 augustus 2005

I'm eating my last bag of Costco trail mix right now (almonds, peanuts, M&Ms, cashews, and raisins, except I usually toss out the raisins), so I definitely have to go to Albert Heijn tomorrow. My body is used to a strict rhythm: small meal, swim, bigger meal, classes, snack, 3-hour nap, another snack, swim, large meal, sleep. This summer it didn't matter so much, since my sleeping and eating were all out of whack anyway due to my crazy work schedule, but this week we've been given two meals a day - brunch and dinner - and I'm not finding that to be enough. I'm satisfied when I leave the meal, but a couple of hours later I'm hungry again. I don't think there's a lot of protein in most of what they give us; that's another possible culprit (and another good reason to buy milk). Also, I have a lot more lean muscle than the average person - especially compared to these skinny Dutch people - and that means I need more calories. Ah, well, on Thursday (when classes start) we'll start getting three meals a day, so maybe that'll help. Hope so.

I'm just testing my own comments to see how they look. I've always used Haloscan before, never Blogger, so this is something new. What do you think?
