boy, do i have a weight lose plan for you!

in just 5 simple steps:

1 - come back to a country in crisis with very little food in your cupboards and no opportunity to go to the grocery store for a few days due to security concerns
2 - contract a head cold so you cannot taste anything
3 - stop eating dairy to try and ease the amount of congestion due to head cold
4 - get so busy at work trying to deal with the amount of internally displaced people left because of the emergency that you have no time to eat lunch
5 - sleep as much as you possibly can to try and alleviate head cold symptoms and stay as well as possible to handle the work load

but no need to worry, i did what is colloquially called 'pigging out' at a sushi restaurant last night. and i feel a craving for chocolate fudge cake coming on...

Yikes! I don't think I like that diet, kiddo. So sorry you're ill in the midst of all the turmoil. The chocolate fudge cake is a good sign, though.
