EVERYTHING burns calories… even just sitting there being alive, breathing, burns calories. But who knew being ROMANTIC could burn so many calories in so short a time!? I just saw this article by womansday.com… 
Kissing - 68 calories burned an hour
Massaging - 80+ calories burned an hour
Sex - 144+ calories burned per half-hour
Dancing - 103+ calories burned per half-hour
Making out - 238 calories burned per half-hour

Healthy substitutes 
1. Brown rice for white rice
When white rice is processed, the “brown” bran layer gets stripped  away, cutting out essential nutrients (like fiber). Opt for brown rice  for a fuller nutritional profile.
2. Quinoa for couscous
While couscous is made from processed wheat flour, quinoa is a whole-grain superfood packed with protein and nutrients— and they have almost the exact same texture.
3. Zucchini ribbons for pasta
Thin strips or ribbons of zucchini are a great stand in for  carb-packed pastas. Plus, it’s one excuse to skip the boiling— simply  sautee for a few minutes until soft.
4. Olive oil for butter
When cooking eggs, this simple switch is a great way to cut down on saturated fats while getting a healthy dose of essential omega 3 fatty acids.
5. Turnip mash for mashed potatoes
While 1 cup of mashed potatoes made with whole milk racks up about 180 calories (before the inevitable salt and butter), a cup of mashed turnip (which doesn’t  need milk or butter to get that creamy consistency) has only 51 calories. Add some fresh herbs in place of the salt and it’s a much healthier version of the classic mash.
6. Grated steamed cauliflower for rice
Cut both calories and carbs with this simple switch. The texture is virtually the same, as is the taste.
7. Mashed cauliflower for mashed potatoes
Just like the turnip mash, mashed cauliflower has only a fraction of  the calories of potatoes and it’s nearly impossible to taste the  difference.
8. Rolled oats for breadcrumbs
While breadcrumbs can pack extra sodium, using rolled oats seasoned  with herbs is a great way to sneak another whole grain into any meal.
9. Dry beans for canned beans
Canned beans are convenient, sure. But they also tend to have excess  sodium and plenty of preservatives. Plus, even though the canned  versions are dirt cheap, the dried are even cheaper! It may take a  little more work (some simple soaking and boiling), but this switch is  still worth it.
10. Prosciutto or pancetta for bacon
Bacon is often the go-to for that smoky flavor in savory dishes (and in some sweet ones). But opting for a few slices of prosciutto or pancetta can help cut both calories and fat. While bacon has about 70 calories and 6 grams of fat per 2 slices, prosciutto (where 1 slice equals about 2 slices of bacon, size wise) has just 30 calories and 4 grams of fat per slice.
11. 2 egg whites for 1 whole egg
One egg yolk holds more than half the recommended daily cholesterol for the average adult. Trading out the yolk for a second white will cut  out the cholesterol while doubling the protein. If making a dish that  requires more eggs, keeps 1-2 yolks for their rich vitamins A, E, D, and  K content, but consider swapping the rest out.
12. Whole wheat pasta for regular pasta
Just as with bread, whole wheat pasta beats regular with a higher fiber content and about 50 fewer calories per serving (depending on the brand).
Healthy alternatives
13. Crushed flax or fiber cereal for bread crumbs
Crushing a fiber-rich cereal and mixing it with some herbs makes a lower-sodium substitution for traditional breadcrumbs.
14. White meat skinless poultry for dark meat poultry
The biggest chicken debate to date: white meat vs. dark meat? The  white meat has it beat— lower in calories and fat, higher in protein and  iron.
15. Olive oil spray for olive oil from the bottle
Oil glugs out of the bottle, leading to overly-greasy dishes. Using a  spray bottle is a great way to cut down on oil while still getting the  non-stick benefits. A little mist is all that’s needed!
16. Egg Beaters for egg yolks
A solid substitution for many egg dishes (like omelets or frittatas),  this switch is especially rewarding in Hollandaise sauce. To get the  richness of the yolk without all the added cholesterol, use an equal  amount of Egg Beaters instead when blending up this classic sauce.
17. Bison for beef
Higher in B vitamins and lower in fat bison is a great substitute for the ol’ beefy standard (when available, of course).
18. Ground Turkey for ground beef
Ground turkey (or chicken) is a great substitute for ground beef to  cut down on saturated fat and calories. A reminder: because of the lower  fat content, ground poultry often ends up drier than beef, but a few  tablespoons of chicken stock can solve the problem.
19. Quinoa and ground turkey for rice and ground beef (in stuffed peppers)
More protein and antioxidants in the quinoa and less fat in the  ground turkey make this an all-around healthier option for this popular  side dish.
20. Coconut milk for cream
Coconut milk is a great substitute for heavy cream in soups and  stews. And don’t be turned off by the word “coconut”— it doesn’t taste  like the sweetened shredded kind!
22. Spaghetti squash for pasta
Roasted and pulled apart with a fork, spaghetti squash is a great low-carb and lower-calorie substitute for pasta.

"Don’t give up, you’ve got the music in you"

He isn’t going to call.
I hung my hat on it; like I always do. I even thought several times:  don’t expect anything. He’s not that guy. Whatever. He’ll come around again when I’ve given up on hearing from him…

I feel… sedated. I’m not sad, and I’m not frustrated. I’m exhausted, and I feel like I’m hungry even after I’ve eaten. Spending the whole day idle makes me feel worse, but living life is just too tiring right now. Classes are slow, the weather is bad, homework makes me want to scream, shopping has lost its luster, Sam and I live together but we don’t spend enough time together to satisfy me. I am single. I am hungry. I have a caffeine addiction that gives me headaches and I’m too hydrated and have to pee all the time. It’s awkward. 

I keep expecting life to be easier than it is, and I keep expecting to be able to live it at the leisurely, Italian pace I love. I keep expecting to feel satisfied after I eat. My stomach is full, and it still fells empty. I also feel kind of empty. I did not exercise today, and I did not exercise yesterday. Wednesday I did some pushups and plank and a smidge of yoga.
I feel like I’m failing at life a little. It’s friday night and I’m in the sport’s bra.. and I haven’t even worked out today. ugh.

off to pee and then off to run. check back in later.
