Day Two was our first full day in New York City. Liz and I hung around the Airbnb before Andrea arrived. There was a rather humorous moment where we watched her get out of her cab and walk in, then we headed down in the elevator, only to almost miss her going up in the other elevator. Many high-pitched noises and hugs were had.
All three of us were exhausted that day – Liz and I from the early morning and day of travel, and Andrea from a party the day before and the fact that she just finished her first year of grad school the day before that. We decided to watch movies, make a game plan for the week, and relax.
The vlog below is a long one, because we recorded our meal planning discussion. All in all, the footage was over an hour, so there are a lot of cuts as I got rid of the random discussions we delved into, although there’s a funny discussion at the end of the video about how words are pronounced in the North versus the South.
All three of us have Binge Eating Disorder, but we also have various medical issues that we all had to take into consideration. During the discussion, we do discuss proteins, carbs, sugar, and calories, but there are no number a mounts. It’s mostly mentioned when we talk about the different ways we view our food.
We knew we would eat breakfast every day, so that was our starting point. That was also the easiest meal to determine, because we could all eat the same when it came to that meal. Lunches were next, which were also easier, because we needed something we could take with us and eat out and about. Every dinner was eaten out, and we used apps on our phones to look at menus so we could determine if there was a meal we could all eat at the same restaurant. Snacks were similar to breakfast, in that all of us could mostly eat the same thing.
After we made our plans, we relaxed for the rest of the day before heading out to the local supermarket and pharmacy to get all our items. It was a relaxing day, but we needed the rest because the next day we were going to have a (very long) adventure at the Bronx Zoo!
