I have been checking the scale and I've remained consistently 123 lbs this whole week.
I don't know how I lost another 5 lbs in a month, but I'm trying to wrack my brain on it. Then I remembered-I've been kind of going vegetarian lately. Not that I want to be vegetarian (I can't give up chicken soup), but since I made friends with Vish (who eats Vegetarian due to her religion), I haven't been wanting to make her feel uncomfortable so I've been eating vegetarian with her every day at the cafeteria.
I don't think I'll be staying at 123 lbs for too long. For one, I'm on this huge crusade to become a body builder. (I just had to lose the fat first). No, I don't mean one of those nasty no-neck body builders, but you know, a moderate one that grace the covers of Shape magazine. I've realized that I've never had the body I always wanted and now is the time. I won't get another. I'm sure I'll start having kids in a year or two (or three!), and I need to get this dream realized before then.
However, Ramsey and I are soon to be hiring a cook we had recommended from a friend and if her dishes happen to be very delicious, my 123 lb frame body may be no longer.
Ramsey and my diet need different attention. Since Ramsey works out about 4 hours on any given day, he needs a lot of fuel and protein, so when he requests dinner from me it's usually meat, meat, and more meat.
My body has been feeling very good since the intake of less meat, so now I'm realizing my life can be fine without so much of it.
I think this can all be very easily resolved by explaining to our new cook to make Ramsey's portions doused with meat, and mine with a few bits to none. I can get my protein from tofu, nuts, and milk and a bunch of other favorite foods.
I think my friend Layne has inspired me. She recently turned Vegetarian. And now that I hang out with Vish, who is also, I just keep getting inspired. My body really does feel so good right now. But I'm not turning Vegetarian. By no means. Don't get me wrong-I love me my meat. It's just that I need to calm down a bit on it.
