I took a walk on the wild side today and decided to put
on my salad. I don't know what possessed me to do it but I just thought, "it can't be that bad". Actually, it wasn't. I found that it doesn't have much of any taste when eaten raw. I couldn't even tell the difference with my regular salad. So now my question is: do they have a taste when they are sauteed? Folks get all up in arms about having sauteed mushrooms on their steak and if they are like the ones I just ate, they don't have a distinct flavor. At least I can say I ate a new vegetable today.
This weekend I am throwing a 70's Themed Sagitarrius Birthday Bash for my fiance, brother and brother-in-law. I am excited but slightly afraid some folks aren't going to dress up. I bought Derrell an afro at the party supply store and it is
! Actually it is the most grodiest, greasiest looking thing ever but I think that is what makes it so great. He is going to look hilarious! I think I am going to get the long Cher wig and wear the tight flare jeans with the one shoulder top and the John Lennon circular colored shades. It will be nice to be able to wear frosted lipstick and blue eyeshadow without judgement.
Since today is Derrell's birthday, we are going to Red Lobster for dinner. They have a lot of great options for me to eat. I am just worried that going out tonight will prevent me from putting in a high intensity workout for the second day in a row because I can't sweat my hair out and have time to shower and re-style it. Its frustrating but I think I will go to the gym and walk the treadmill and do some strength training. Last night I danced on the Kinect for about 40 minutes so I wasn't a complete slob.
I have come to the realization that i need a second job. The bills are not getting any smaller and the wedding planning is eating up our home equity line of credit. I worked at Red Lobster for 8 1/2 years while I worked at the bank too. I know they will rehire me but Derrell is afraid that working two jobs will derail my weight loss journey and he doesn't want me to be upset with that. It is upsetting but realistically, he doesn't make enough money at his job and I refuse to allow finances to ruin our home life and relationship so he works a small part time job and I am going to try to work the same nights that he works and I think that extra income will help.
Well I have to go conduct some more training classes (I am a corporate trainer for a large bank). Before I go, here is a goodie for today for all of my runner friends:
