JOB! And food..

Here we are... day three in NYC!

I'm having a hard time getting in my 6 small meals a day. I just run and run and run. In a way, this is awesome. But I know that I'm dehydrated and that I'm hungry nearly 80% of the time.

Went to the organic co-op...   dropped about $50 and walked out with food for about 4-5 days. So it's a little more than I budgeted for. I found another grocer on my way to the B subway today... Really great produce and the prices are MUCH more appealing.

1/4 a large candy coffee from Dunkin' Donuts
cheddar grits with poached eggs and butternut squash
Piece of sourdough toast with goat butter.
3 big pieces of margarita pizza (shhhh...)

Turkey burger (no sauce, no cheese)
Side salad with balsamic.
Dried mango strips.

High fiber toast + apple butter and peanut butter.
(so far).

I'm surrounded by food of every ethnicity and price... So many things I haven't tried or even heard of. I may fall into some calorie traps. But for the most part, if I continue to eat like Sunday... I should be fine.

I'm walking about 3-5 miles a day. No biggie... so that's the same as in Idaho. I'm very close to a Bally's  gym. I've got a little research to do about membership costs. But I would love to have access to a gym. As much as I love my neighborhood... I don't quite have enough trust to plug in my ipod and run without being paranoid or self conscious... YET.

Today... best thing! I went and met Allan. Yes. Scary, tell it like it is Allan. I got to see the restaurant he works for. Beautiful place and full of healthy things as far as the morning snack bar was concerned. I wandered around Rockefeller Plaza a bit and then took the train home. As much as I would love to really peruse that area... it just makes me want to spend the money I don't have. And it's not like it's a race to see all of NYC. I LIVE HERE NOW... I can take my time.

I have a job! It's an hors d'ouvres thing... wear black, look friendly, ask people how they are, offer tiny food stuffs. I have another job interview tomorrow with a staffing agency (helping the agency, not being staffed). I'm excited. I hope I'm what they're looking for. HIRE ME, PEOPLE!!! I'm 10 shades of AWESOME!

Big Fat Brooklyn Love,
