I came home today to a HUGE box on my back porch. Oh! It was dropped off by Fed-Ex (who totally drove off the driveway to avoid a mud puddle and MADE A HUGE RUT) and a message on my answering machine that said "Laura, please come to the post office your birds are here!" Wow, great mail day, again. This was our second delivery of birds in 4 days, our 25 rare breed chicks came in Monday morning at 5 AM. Um, yeah, I didn't go pick them up until 8 AM because...well because.
So today's bird box contained 7 turkey, 7 ducks and 2 geese. Aside from the baby chicks we got Monday this was the cutest box of cuteness I have ever seen.

25 baby chicks!
What was in the Fed Ex box you ask? Well I was curious about that too and it turns out it was from foodbuzz for whom I am a featured publisher. It was part of their tastemaker program and it was PASTA. Yum, it looks good and I can't wait to try it. The box was huge though and weighed 15 pounds. For the life of me I couldn't figure out why they sent me 15 pounds of pasta. They didn't, the package weighed 15 pounds, the pasta(?) weighed 9 ounces. What? Luckily I can recycle most of the packaging.
As part of my on going battle of the bulge and attempting to : 1) eat real food/avoid frankenfood 2) eat local when possible 3) actually consume real serving sizes I am going to tag on my daily eats to my posts as part of my accountability
So here goes
breakfast- hot coffee w/skim milk
nancy's plain non-fat yogurt with strawberries, 2 prunes (Newmans Own Orgainc they are nothing but prune and OH SO GOOD and soft!) honey and cold milled golden flax
lunch-salad with feta, mushrooms, tomatoes, peas and olive oil
nut thins crackers (pecan!! so good) and cantaloupe
snack- cantaloupe and 1 ounce pirate booty
dinner-Italian grinder and sweet maui onion chips
water all day 8 - 10 glasses
I felt slightly out of control in my eating today maybe because the day was so over booked with STUFF that I felt a bit manic? Not sure but it's definitely there.
Here is breakfast the rest were spent on the run :(I guess I should ask this question: tag a daily eats on to this blog? or create a second blog to chronicle my journey with real food and weight loss? HMMMMMMM... what do you all think?
