Day 2: Temp X and Trader Joe's Project

Tuesday's Dinner:  Organic Creamy Tomato Soup (Low Sodium) $2.29 for 32 oz.
Estimated serving size -- 8 oz.

Pour into a sauce pan and heat.  Wait for the bubbles to emerge.  Eat.  Like Trader Joe's sushi, it's pretty much idiot-proof -- or as I like to call it "Hollywood Executive-proof."  To be honest, I'm not sure why I got the Organic version rather than the regular, tomato-killing version.  It was probably to impress the cute cashier or because I didn't have my glasses on and I thought it said "Orgasmic."  I also like to throw in some crushed up nachos just to fill space and so I can pretend I didn't just have soup for dinner.

Pretty sad, eh?
Every Tuesday my employer get bagels for the staff meeting.  Since I'm Jewish, I have to eat a bunch of them and then complain these bagels aren't nearly as good as the ones from H&H.  So now I'm stuffed for the rest of the day.  When I get home, I'm tired and barely hungry.  Thus I make soup and watch Wipeout just to kill some time before falling asleep on the couch.  I learned that I need a hobby as eating tomato soup and watching people get hit in the face isn't the life in the Hollywood fast lane I'd been promised.

There are so many types of diets: South Beach, Atkins, Rhubarb just to name a few.  My weight control plan, which I like to call the "I-can-barely-afford-my-rent-because-I-make-$22k-a-year,-so-food-is-a-luxury Diet," is based on the principle that the less you eat now, the less you need to throw up later.  This is especially handy for the aspiring actor/actress who needs to look good during the audition for "Crowd Member #526" in Transformers 3.  Also, try not to think about the fact that Michael Bay makes more money in an hour than you do all year.  That's enough to make you lose your lunch too.
