My friend who has lived here for eight years or so asked me if I feel myself getting swept up in the rush of life here. Maybe its because I haven't been here long enough or that being a nanny doesn't have too many timed appointments. If I'm by myself then I might walk across the street when there is a red hand on the crosswalk but I don't like to when I am with the baby. I kinda like waiting for the green man. I can stand there and really look at what is around. Sometimes this is not a good idea. I might notice bakeries and ice-cream shops or restaurants and bars that I want to go to. There are so many places I want to eat. I probably couldn't eat at all these places before I leave even if I never went back to the same place twice.

It is really nice that the family that I live with are Nutritarian. I really like this way of living. I think that when I live on my own I will eat more like this. She doesn't eat sugar, salt, fats as in oil or butter or much dairy. I know this sounds blah and gross but really there are other ways of flavoring foods with spices that it isn't needed. I like that we eat like this at home. Then I don't feel so bad eating a slice of NY pizza or going to a bakery. Although I might not go over in my calories I do feel a little sluggish or gross after eating these delectable treats. Even though while eating them they are so yummy the aftermath isn't as fun. But I like it. It helps me to not keep going back. I think this is how I want to live. Keep all unhealthy food out of the house. If I want to be bad then it needs to be eaten out.

beauty in the crosswalk. I love all the green in the city.
I have been finding it difficult to track all my calories. For one if I eat out I am not too sure what all is in it and I have just been lazy. Since the competition is over I have less motivation to log everything. Then I walk for hours everyday. I don't really want to count all those calories as exercise. I think I want to start biking or roller skating when my roommate gets home. Then I can track those calories. I don't want to let myself go especially since I want to try a lot of the culinary treasures in the city.
