^_^ So I like my tummeh today.
I do have some excellent genetics, luckily. My dad loses without trying, and my mom doesn't get much loose skin. She lost a bunch of weight just from stopping her food service career and going into vocational training. Whee, which is what I do now...
Aaaah, I love my job. My clients don't care that I'm a dweeb.

... I hate my stomach. But on average, hating my stomach a few days here and there is not bad, considering how much weight I've lost. (hunnerd poonds, aye)
I could LOATHE it. ^_^ It's a little saggy, and a little baggy, and it muffins over my jeans, but get me in some looser pants, and it's just fine. And most days it doesn't muffin... So, tomorrow I shall do my "pilates for wimps" dollar store video, and feel better about my tummy. If I keep it up, I bet I can get my tummy in some sort of reasonable shape. (Blar blar, no spot reduction, I know, but a bit of muscle really does help my baggy skin.)
Oh, and I've been eating lots of plant life lately. (*pat pat* Good Harmie) This morning I had stirfried zucchini and onions with my mini bagel and peanut butter. Mmm... It seems to help me maintain my weight. Chyeah, who knew? *sarcasm*

...lower calorie consumption in Harmie and Harmie-related people.
I made muffins! First, I accidentally tipped over one of the muffin cups, which made that cup and the dough in it useless. (Trust me, I'm picky, so it's useless.) I threw it away. Then I made twelve more muffins anyway. (I also scrambled an egg and some zucchini and onions to go with mine.) I didn't use all the streusel topping, but there was plenty. After they were cooked to perfection, due to a brain fart, I put the tin on a burner I had inexplicably turned on and forgotten about. (I didn't even use the burner.) So there goes three more muffins in the trash.
Then I had my muffin, the scram, and a few wee cups of coffee. Instead of two ginormous cups.... That's how I make my tummy think it's getting more coffee, when it's actually getting slightly less.
So.... Carmelized onions as a side dish... yea or nay? Cause those things are sweet and yum. I could definitely eat an entire onion cooked in this manner.

^_^ Ha HA! I had an excuse... really... now what was it...
I was visiting with a friend the other day, cooking dinner in her kitchen, which, like every good kitchen, has everything in its logical-for-cooks location. As I was getting sticky, club dough hands, I spied some deep purple berries, had a thought, and popped one in my mouth. Just as I suspected, huckleberries.
Husband: "I can see from the orgasmic expression on her face that Harmony has discovered your huckleberries."
I have been considering this for a couple days now, and it seems to be true, but the point I was going to make is this...
I never drool over fast food. I'll eat it. I used to eat it in a constant, panicky manner known to some as "binging"... But I have never drooled over it like I drool over a well ripened berry, or a good cucumber. Fast food is one of those "I'm hungry, I will eat this hamburger because I'm hungry." things.
And then I get all lethargic and phlegmy and unhappy... over food that doesn't make me happy, or satisfied.
So.... I bought this bunch of quinoa... a while ago. Tried it instead of oatmeal... and that didn't really work out. So yesterday morning, I rinsed a bunch of it, and put it in a rice cooker with water. (No idea how much, couple cups for a cup of quinoa, I think.) I cut up some of those funny round cucumbers, and some tomatoes, and green onions, and mixed it with most of the quinoa, and the rest of the feta cheese I had in my fridge, and some light sour cream. Oh, and salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
It turned out really good, somehow. (I guess rinsing does help with the bitterness.)
So, I'm having that, and some fat free yoghurt with blueberries for lunch today. (They'll think I've gone mad, big bonus, that. If they think I've gone all rabbit, I'll just tell them I'm eating that leftover cheeseburger for dinner.)
(And yes, my yoghurt is spelled with an "h". That's just how good it is.)

By free gourds. Holy crap, I love this time of year... Bring me your squash, your unwashed veggies.... *cough* Zucchini omelet, aye.
I'm still considering the zucchini parmesan... I've got a big honking king of squash sitting in my living room....
I need to cut this stuff up, mix it with onions, and freeze it.
I'm not sure what the squat buggers are... acorn or butternut... Okay, acorn...
