The first thing:
If you're like me and completely lose self-control when it comes to eating pasta or other starchy foods, try this trick that has worked for me since I first wrote about it in 2011: give yourself one portion, fill the rest of the space with veggies, and put the rest of your starch in a leftovers container for the next day or for later. An example is a box of macaroni and cheese. I can easily eat an entire box of macaroni and cheese, even if I'm feeling so full that I think I will explode. To prevent myself from doing this, I microwave 1-2 cups of frozen broccoli in a bowl and then add half of the cooked macaroni (see blurry picture below). I put the rest in a tupperware container and put it away in the fridge.
The second thing:
I got a Yosh Universal Dry Bag for my iPhone 6 in case I need to go running in the rain.
That's all for today!
