So -- I've done Day 4 of making the cut -- AKA Day one all over again.
After a 20min run. :) ROCK ON.
And I've apparently underestimated my burn for this week because I still have another day of MTC tomorrow, a run and pilates on Saturday at the minimum, and I'm already at 3,760 cals burned so far this week (or something like that).
I didn't get enough to eat this morning before leaving the house (was rushing) and I was sitting at my desk at work kinda feeling a bit woozy until I went and ate some of the food I brought about 30min ago. Feeling MUCH BETTER now!!! :D Been drinking a megaton of water.
Last night the salmon ... DH liked it!!! I was surprised. I was not a super fan, but hey, it worked. I think I could have seasoned the fish more because it was just - SALMON. But it was pretty good -- not gross at all. (Not like my terrifying childhood memories hahaha) Anyway. The skin was gross to touch though. I have no problems touching meat, turkey guts... but the skin of the salmon -- it reminded me of a snake only it was obviously dead and I was wrapping it up in ziplocs to throw away so it wouldn't stink up the trash and wow. It just felt creepy in my hands. It kind made me sad in a way because I really like snakes. HAHAHAHAHA That is such a weird reaction I just have to laugh. Anyway -- there is leftover salmon and I'm like uhhh so now what? Can you make it into a "salad" ala "tuna salad"? I'd like to get some of those good salmon benefits without having to just eat it as it is. Ya know?
The veggies came out neat -- in fact... I think the rutebaga (SP?) might have been my favorite!!!! So weird. I've decided I don't love parsnips. They taste good unless I get a taste of that CORE-y part. Ya know how when you cut a carrot at the big part you can see that inner ring? Well Parsnips got it and the flavor of the center is a little different and I'm not a fan. Otherwise, they're good. That poor rutebaga was hard to work with, though. It was coated in wax which made it look extra leprous, and it was hard/heavy as a rock. When I put the rest of it back in the veggie drawer it was like *THUNK*. hahaha. BUT -- resulting food = good.
So this morning I burned over 1000 cal again and I'm just looking forward to lunch. :)
Here's a picture to reward you for reading about my salmon woes and rutebaga adventures.
AND the same shirt and me now.
As a bonus, you get to see some of my crap in the background. ;) HAHAHA
P.S. -- I forgot to mention -- while I'm still very sore compared to prior starting this new regimen, I'm less sore today than since I started. :) SCORE!
