Apart from sleeping, napping, and dragging myself slowly around the house, I haven't been doing too much! Hahahaha!
Susi spent the weekend here, on her way home from Ironman Canada, and we relaxed in a grand style. I got her totally addicted to True Blood! Hahahaha!! We basically sat on the couch all day and night and watched episode after episode. I had to refrain from giving anything away when Susi would wager a guess, "Oh, he's a werewolf for sure." LMAO!!!!
Susi returned the favour by helping me out with my nutrition -- this girl knows her stuff! This past year, I struggled with not getting enough calories in -- and then gorging on ice cream bars, Chinese food, etc, when the painful hunger hit me. I couldn't figure out how I was supposed to subsist on salads -- it just wasn't enough for me.
Well, a weekend with nutritional guru Susi, has firmly planted me on the right track -- she has cleared up a lot of my misconceptions about eating -- namely, don't try to exist on salads alone -- bad idea!
She supervised me in the kitchen as I roasted vegetables and soaked steel cut oats. Susi, thank you so much for all your advice -- it is really working!!!!!
First off, was the much needed and long overdue purchase of coconut oil. Kelsey had tried to tell me about this before, but as all my friends know I can be pretty stubborn...LOL!! This plus the fact, that most health food stores give me the heebie-jeebies. As I told Susi, it had always seemed to me that really pale, skinny women who don't shave their armpits and buy crystals go there. When I would hear I "have" to buy such and such a product, I would automatically cringe and doubt -- wouldn't you? Hahahahaha!
Next, THIS is what I am eating now -- no more puny dit salads. Give me some full on vegetable love, baby! Hahahahaha!
I brought out my handy-dandy food processor and made my own hummus -- Chuck, just try it, OK? I know, I know, it looks like light poop, but trust me. LOL!!!
And the wonderful seaweed wrap or nori wrap!! Susi converted me to the delights of this!
And finally, again with my food processor, I whipped up some nice recovery balls -- coconut and date lovelies! :) :)
I am so excited to have FINALLY found some nutritional solutions -- things I can make without having to buy 79 ingredients -- simple, healthy, and truly NUTRITIOUS eating that fills me up with the right foods and leaves me satisfied and fueled.
I am ready for next year, baby!!! Hahahahahahaha!
