Today is Day 3 of the transformatio contest.
I think I'm going to like this new diet, because it changes so often. I am just finishing up 2 days of low carbing, but it's cool, because tomorrow I get to eat my fruit all day again! Then, after two days of eating fruit but otherwise my normal diet, I get to have a cheat day. Then I pop back to low carb for two days. I can do two days. 3 or 4 kills me, but 2 is manageable. I'm not even hungry! Dinner ran a little late tonight and I got a bit hungry, but still made it with only a couple of frozen grapes as a tide over (I do have to make sure I don't crash).
I ate just like yesterday other than dinner which was a loaded buffalo chicken salad. Bill fusses about salads, but this salad had 4 different protein sources, 3 of which were also fat sources! It had chicken, bacon, feta, and hard-boiled eggs. It also had chickpeas, so that is even more protein ... and fiber! I am totally satisfied by these salads. Bill just has issues with the concept of "salad" as dinner, he also doesn't like "soup" as dinner ... even if it contains all the same foods that would have been on the plate! It's all psychological, really.
Tonight is Turbulence Training workout night, always exciting!
In terms of life, I've been pretty busy at work. I have to get some work done on the car this weekend so it will be in shape for summer driving to NJ, Erie, and New Hampshire. In less than two weeks I will be in Philly for ASM! Anyone in the area ... let me know, we can hang! I work, I cook, I exercise. This is why I don't write about my life.
I am mostly off to work out, hooray!
However, I am going to take just a moment here to fuss about Susan Boyle ... if you are totally inspired by her, more power to you, stop reading NOW!
For the rest:
1) She stole my song. I've been singing I Dreamed a Dream since I was a kid, I always played Fauntine when we acted out Les Miserables, I have even done that song for karaoke in the past.
2) The song is actually negative!! She's dreaming about the life she thought she had before she became a WHORE to support herself and her father-less child living at an inn! Context, people. (Reminds me of the Born in the USA problem ... another rant, another time).
3) I can sing too. However, I can't be a singer, I don't have the range, I don't have a look, and I don't fit most parts in musicals. I know this. I still love to sing. It's called Rock Band and Karaoke and the car. That's what you do when you can't make it as a singer for other reasons. On the other hand, my best friend deserves to be in a show, she sings better than Susan Boyle, looks gorgeous, and can act. She's a waitress. This is not fair.
