7/7 Day 3 & 4

Day 3 Afternoon: Black bean soup with hard-boiled egg white and apple with peanut butter.

Day 3 Night: Ben and Jerry’s milk shake, gorgonzola fries, a few sips of beer, about 4 glasses of water.

Day 4 Morning: 20 oz latte from Victoria’s

Yes, that is right I am out.  How did it come to this?  Well, yesterday I sent my passport to get a visa.  The visa should be back in 3 business days.  As soon as I get my visa back I will be flying back to Afghanistan.  SO?  My diet in Afghanistan will not be too much different from this food competition diet.  That means I want to eat some dairy and cook with olive oil before I go.  I will not be gone too long but long enough to miss cooking my own foods.

A trip to Costco to get some fruit to juice really put me over the edge.  Why am I restricting myself now when I will be restricted next week?  Then the phone calls started.  I left Becky a desperate voicemail, eagerly waiting for her work break.  Thank goodness I have an iPhone and could just send her emails and text messages too.  I still was not convinced I should drop out of the competition, but Remi was definitely failing as he was about to breakout into tears wanting to eat pizza.  A few text messages were sent to Andrew, Mark, and Ryan.  Two of which thought I was joking about Remi going out and one who encourage it.  I am sure you can guess who was encouraging.

Meanwhile, I put two calls into Tara, my Philly Librarian and messenger for the Kingdom of Vegetarians winner.  The first asking her to order a pizza to my house because I just could not bring myself to do it.  The second another plea to get me out of this contest.  Still, she wasn’t going to help and, I wasn’t going to leave my house.  Until, her and Matty mentioned a Ben and Jerry’s milkshake! Keeping up with my marathon training I ran to Ben and Jerry’s along with Remi who had long decided he was going out.  Becky calls saying she is on her work break.  I asked her to meet at the ice cream shop.  The three of us drank milkshakes and loved it.  Until, Becky and I felt sick.

Anyone left in the contest, do not go out.  It will make you sick.  Right now I am still buzzing from a 20 oz latte.  I rarely drink coffee, but when I do it is no more than an 8 oz beverage, so 20 oz will, that is just mind blowing. I will, in the future stick to a more non-processed foods diet.  But, I do want to add a little processed now and again.

Mark S., Mark G., I am rooting for you.  Andrew, I don’t think it is possible for Remi to knock you out.  Jordy and Paul, if you are out there update, otherwise I am saying you went out before me.

I am already thinking of the next contest.  This time I will try to make sure Afghanistan isn’t around the corner.  How about aiming for sometime near Bloomsday the end of April or mid May?  Anyone is welcome and I think the addition of Hank and Jacque will be a challenge to Andrew.  He needs some strong competitors.

  1. YES! I’m glad we went out! I went to Steer Inn and ate a grilled cheese sandwich and fries, and then ate a billion chocolate-covered pretzels. I did not feel well after this. Not at all. I agree though, I want to eat more non-processed food..it’s actually not bad (minus the crankiness of not having caffeine). I also hope nobody else gets out of the competition this time.
