Oh hey

Thought I'd update.

My food has been good. There's been 2 straight days of sweets at work but I managed to not have any. Win! I've been eating my seafood and I'm enjoying it. I'm pretty sure I'm actually starting to lose weight. I just weighed myself (might I add it's nighttime) and I'm lower again. WTF. I mean, it's great but I think I'm just mad that I've been trying so hard for so long and the secret answer might have just been to start eating meat again.

We'll see.

Also, my opponent was watching me train today.  GET OUT. I don't watch you. Don't watch me. I hope she was intimidated at least? I felt like I was kicking ass. 

1 month to fight night.  IT'S ON.

We'll here is an update. I'm not getting enough protein. If I am, it's not from natural sources and I'm not ok with that. A protein shake can only go so far. So my goal now is to have about 50g of protein per meal. So, I've decided to start eating seafood. Yup. 

My first attempt is below. I have a long way to go. I stopped eating meat before I learned how to cook anything. I feel like these need to be browned? I don't know. All I can hear is Gordon Ramsay telling me my scallops are under or overlooked so I took them off the pan as soon as I thought they were ready. They were fully cooked inside. Meh. Tasted good!
