McDougall Program Day 10, and music jam

Morning weights: Julie 140 1/2, Ziggy 191

Julie lunch: Lentils and brown rice; broccoli

Ziggy lunch: Cucumber-bean salad; baked apple rice

Julie snacks: Herbal tea; hot cocoa; sweet potato biscuits

Ziggy snacks: Whole-wheat bread with strawberry jam; fava beans

Dinner for both: Twice-baked potatoes with mixed vegetables; fat-free fudge with fruit

Julie exercise: Approx 1 hour walking

Ziggy exercise: Approx 30 min walking

Feelings: Started the day sluggish, but perked up when my friend Jason invited me to go jam with him and his friend at Jason's studio space in Oakland. Had a good walk getting there, and a blast playing bass; I sang and played nearly every song I've learned, with Jason accompanying on drums and his friend listening appreciatively. They both praised my singing, and didn't mind my wrong notes. Definitely made my day.

The twice-baked potatoes were a recipe I just found while reading through the McDougall newsletter archives today (listed as "stuffed potato boats" there). Not bad, but a bit bland; Ziggy spiced his up with bacon salt (which is vegan, but has a frighteningly-long list of ingredients; I stuck to freshly-ground black pepper).
