I don’t know how I ate so many frozen dinners in my past life, but unless you’re going to spend $5 on one, don’t bother. (And if you do, it’ll probably be okay but not for your whole life.) The person who lost weight on frozen dinners was 30s me, when I was younger and half-full of patience for bullshit, though that seems to have been a non-renewable resource that I exhausted. Enter middle-aged me, with my ever-growing pile of Fuck That Shit.
So, okay, that didn’t work. I was hungry a lot and not at all satisfied by the food I was eating. Maybe I should re-name this blog Goldilocks and the Three Hundred Diets. Will I ever find an approach to food that is Just Right for me?
Last night I chopped and grilled or roasted a lot of veggies. They ended up tasting like veggie-candy. I also grilled chicken breasts. It’s worth it to read up on how to do this properly, which I finally did and the results were amazing. It involves flattening them and soaking them in a salt-and-sugar solution for half an hour first. Sorry, chickens, I KNOW it’s gross to eat you. Really gross. But I’m going to do it for a while. Sorrysorrysorry. You are delicious. Sorry.
I put my scale in the closet this morning. I just can’t look at it every time I enter my bathroom. I successfully uploaded a channel on my Roku TV called “Daily Burn” this morning. I’ll let you know how the workouts go.
