I'm not dead. But my iPhone nearly was.

In the continuing saga of the dead iPhone, it took another unexpected turn this week when an AT&T rep basically shot it between the eyes, rendering my phone dead for a day.

I've got most of the photos from what I ate, and will post them as I can. The iPhone app where I captured 6 months of weightloss has lost its data. I can input the data again from the archives I've kept here.

The good news is that my weight is about the same. 185 - 187. Holding in that comfortable place.

June 28

Ah, Sunday.

Lunch - Bowl of plain pasta. I shoulda had half of the amount shown. But I didn't.

Dinner - Russ made a fab dinner. Ribs, corn, homemade potato salad. Skinny cow for desert.

Behind schedule in posting:

Breakfast - popovers (yes, all 5)
Snack - cream cheese strudel (thanks, Carole!)
Snack - Snackwell cookies AND almonds. Moo
Dinner with Mom - 1/2 of the scallion pancake shown and Island Tofu something. I lost the original pic. This is a pic of the leftovers. :)

The cake in the pics was to celebrate a co-worker who became a US citizen this past week. Way to go, Franklin. However, the cake was so tasty, I had a second piece which guilted me into skipping dinner.

Lunch - Salad. three pretzels

Snack - Cake. Then more cake.

Late (before bed) - handful of dried apricots and chocolate. (hey, I wanted something sweet.)

June 20 - Didn't exist

I was without my phone all day. I left it in the car whenever we went to eat. Dork.

What I remember eating:

  • 2 slices of pizza at an outdoor fest (yeah, like I needed that.)
  • A cookie from Truffles.
  • Small choco-cherry ice-cream from Honey Hut.

At that point, I was ready to lay down and bust and didn't eat the rest of the day.

June 19 - It all goes to pot.

I brought bagels for our morning meeting --but then went overboard. I started with one before I got to the meeting. Then had 2 more at the meeting. Then another one at my desk. Ugh.

Bob and I went to a grad party in the evening where I had a bit of salad, pizza and some delicious cake.

Carb, much?

June 18

I'm several days behind in posting. Mom was in the hospital and another friend ended up in the ER with back problems, so I've been a little stressed which will be realized in my eating habits during the next 2 days

Lunch - TWO ORDERS of sweet potato chips. They were too damn good.

Dinner - Chicken-Coconut soup and pineapple-fried rice from Asian Grille in Lakewood. Mom's first time after getting out of the hospital. "Get me some real food!" she pleaded. She loved the soup and entree.

June 17 - What a Day

Started off teaching downtown. Stopped home to grab a quick bite and got a call from Mom who needed to be rushed to the ER. She's fine, but a bit of a scare. Then zipped to see Russ, Jeff and Zak -- all in separate locations. By day's end, I was pooped.

I came home, eager to download the new iPhone OS, which then crashed my phone. I was up til 1am trying to get it operational again. It's now 7:20am on 6-18 and it's almost 1/2 way done.

Breakfast - stopped by Einstein Bagels for a PowerBagel with peanut butter. Yum

Snack - 10 dried apricots

Lunch - None. I spent the afternoon in the ER with mom.

Dinner - After mom was left in the CDU, I went to dinner with Russ at a new place, Boca. Wonderful food. The bread comes with 3 types of spread - a tomato, a black bean and an herbed butter. 3 lamb and kalamata olive empanadas and a rock shrimp, corn and veggie "pan" (pizza). I ate too much, but wonderful.

June 16 - Stunning

It was one of those days when the weather was so perfect, you wish everyday could be like today. I drove the car to work thinking I'd be attending an event after work. That changed. I should have taken the scooter since we'll have rain the next few days.

Lunch - leftover potato/onion/pepper mix from yesterday's breakfast. 2.5 pretzels.

More Lunch - Pizza was brought in for lunch. I took a corner piece. :)

Snack - 3 Musketeers.

Dinner - black beans and cheese.

OK - Screw it. Pics don't want to align properly and it's late and I'm too tired to fight it. (UPDATE: Fixed it)

Breakfast - about a hand-sized portion of the egg/cheese/onion/pepper skillet you see

Lunch - 5 easy pieces (of sushi). Since I went to pick up my new car tonight, I missed dinner.

Snack - cookie.

June 14 - Sunday

Odd day.

Lunch - went to a birthday party, but really didn't eat anything there except 1/2 of a devilled egg.

Dinner - 5 pieces of sushi. Then 4 more.

Snack - a little ice cream.
