This week my boyfriend and I started a diet. That’s right, a diet. 3 meals a day. Healthy food. Water. Bleh. It’s so boring to talk about dieting isn’t it? But it’s what’s happening in the house of Fab right now, because the two of us are not looking too fab. Seriously. We’re turning into lazy fatsos.
Along with the dieting goes the drinking. That’s no beer, no wine, no cocktails, no shooters. No nada. Not even margaritas. No, no, no. So basically we can’t go out for dinner and we can’t go out drinking. What the hell are we gonna do?
We’re going to be boring.
BUT! There is a silver lining to all of this:
Cooking is proving to be very interesting. Seriously! Trying to find healthy versions of things we love, cooking fish, grilling veggies – it’s like, when you don’t have a goal of how to eat, you just let it slide. Well, I did. I just made tons of caesar salads and buffalo chicken sandwiches and delicious burgers – and you DO get bored of all this stuff.
So it’s exciting tonight that I’m making halibut fillets. I’m not sure exactly how I’ll be making them, but my pineapple salsa will be going along with it, and sautéed mushrooms and cauliflower. It should be pretty tasty.
I’m also one of those worrywarts that stresses about not eating meat. It’s like, after growing up with meat my whole life, I feel like it isn’t a real meal without meat. But my lunches lately fill me up and all I’ve been eating are veggie wraps or veggies on naan bread. I seriously get bored of salads – my favourite salad is an arugula, strawberry, goat cheese and pine nuts concoction with a sweet dressing. I suppose I can eat it without the dressing or the cheese, but would it taste as good? Nope.
I know, you guys might think I’m being a bit too strict. But if you had 50 pounds to lose, what would you do? Okay, I may be exaggerating by a bit, really, I think it’s like 40 pounds I need to lose but I threw out my scale a while back so I have no clue. I just know my clothes don’t fit and I hate my life. So if I have to suffer for a month or two and really lose weight and re-teach myself how to eat healthy, so be it.
Here’s to dieting! (please, drink some champagne for me. )
