The inspiration had come from this on-line ad of lulu's website:
This reminded me to wear my animal print dress mom brought from their cruise vacation paired with this mustard jacket I had acquired from TJ Maxx early summer.
I realized last night in the shower that I packed too many outfits for this week. You see, the past two weeks I have been traveling on Sunday and packing 5 work day outfits. So when I make my list I pick 6 outfits total. But this week I traveled on a Monday so did not need a 6th outfit. I would have actually loved to eliminate today's combo as it was my least favorite among everything I packed but since I wanted to do the BDIB I couldn't. Oh well...
I have been trying to find cool black feather earrings but have not come across a pair I really like. These brown ones I love but wish had black ones for this outfit.
Dress - gift from Mom
Jacket - TJ Maxx

Day 2 of my diet today.
Breakfast: Tea, 1 egg, 1/2 banana and 1 toast
Lunch: 1 cup cottage cheese or tuna (I went half and half) and 8 saltine crackers!
Dinner: 2 beef franks, 1 cup broccoli, 1/2 cup carrots, 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream!
I love the cafeterias at this company I am consulting at. They are so versatile and have everything. I get the tuna and the cottage cheese from the salad bar.
I bought today's dinner during lunch. Had the grill place grill me two hot dogs with no buns. Used the lunch bar again for the broccoli (which they serve a bit steamed - perfection). They were out of the carrot stick cup, so I got some cucumbers and green peppers from the salad bar instead. And the banana. Bought extra saltine crackers for tomorrow's breakfast since they might not have them out during the morning time.
And again what a money saver. Today's total expense for *ALL* meals was under $15!!!
Surprisingly I did not feel hungry. But you have to realize I literally do not move all day other than to go use the bathroom or walk to the cafeteria. I am kind of missing the meetings from my first week that kept me walking all over this huge compound now. Plus my counterpart consultant left today so a bit lonely and getting so tired of my current task which is mind numbingly complex fee calculation testing. My eyes hurt from staring at spreadsheet figuring out why my numbers do not match!
