Day 4 DP - Clams and more clams

Pretty uneventful so far.  Woke up, had a fancy bowl of clam and rice for breakfast with a little kale thrown in.  I was planning on having sushi today as part of my weekly allowance of 1 sushi lunch (see Official Guidelines) at work.  But one thing led to another and I got busy at work around lunch time and missed my opportunity.  How much does that suck?  I didn't bring in anything prepared so I was left with nothing but a tall glass of water for lunch.  I have to be a little smarter than that.

Trying to make a clam look good

Hoping to go striper fishing on the beach tonight after work.  Maybe I can pick up a bucket of seawater to make some salt while I'm there.  But not if it's still murky.
Ok, I think I'm going to order that sushi lunch after all.  There's a place that delivers not too far from here.  The quality is fair at best but I'm feeling a little desperate right now at work.  My tummy keeps grumbling right in my patient's ear.  Who wants to see a hungry dentist.  Sushi it is.  That should give me enough energy to get to the beach tonight.
Easter weekend is coming up and in my family that means food, food and more food.  It should be interesting to see how supportive everyone is.

late addition. . .
I did get the sushi lunch today.  I ate about half.  Got a VERY full feeling and stopped.  I think it was too much for my very delicate system right now.  Feels like a lump in my stomach - quite sore.  So I took the rest home and when I got home I was welcomed by Ty and Debbie calling me a cheater!  Apparently they have never read the Official Guidelines which clearly dictate that I am allowed this one indulgence. 
Well - no one likes to be called a cheater!  And I did say that I was going to try my best to stick with the plan without cheating this year.  So here's what I'm going to do - I'm going to scratch the sushi lunch from now on.  Yes you heard it - no more.  I will also strike it from the Official Guidelines.  Hope you're happy Deb and Ty!  If I'm cranky in the middle of the week you'll know why.
