Day 3 in the books...

So... Day three is done and was successful.

I was right about it being hard to eat the cottage cheese.  The first one I had was no problem at all, but the second one... Oh my.  I had to eat it in two separate parts about an hour apart and even with that I didn't finish the little tiny container. I find it really surprising how it does feel like I get tighter as each day of test goes by.

For dinner I had some tilapia and remembered why I don't each much tilapia.  It was good and all... but.. eh.  I find it very bland.  The seasonings I cooked it with were really good, but the fish was just... like a place to put the seasonings.  My friend Farrah LOVES tilapia and is always cooking it, I figured I'd go with it - even thinking it was stupid that I hadn't had any in a really long time - I mean, seriously, I love seafood of all kinds.  So I went and got some, cooked it up as she suggested and... it was fine... eh.

Today, however, I get to eat shrimp and salmon.  YAY!!  So, even though Linda has completely ruined shrimp for me and I've gotten stuck almost every single time I've had it since the time she said "OMG, you can eat shrimp???  Most people get stuck on it!!" - I'm still really looking forward to giving it a try.  And tonight I'm going to cook a salmon fillet on a little cedar plank - YUMMMM!

And yes - I did cheat a bit yesterday too.  I was really hungry when I got home from work but had been drinking on my way home - but still... I nibbled on the rotisserie chicken that I'd just bought for the kids and it was seriously good.   But again - I'm not going to sweat the fact that I "cheated" by having a little poultry.... so sue me.

And I did get on the treadmill for 30 minutes.... so one down two to go on that front.

Have a great day!!

It sounds like the pounch test is really working for you. I am glad to hear that since I plan to try it next week, after my fill.

I just tried tilapia for the first time in about 10 years and I also had the... eh feeling about it.

Jessica ( gave me a recipe for it to try and I figured I'd give it to you if you felt like giving it another go! I'm gonna try it soon.

In a foil pack w/ fish put: onions, green pepper, garlic, and lemon juice to your liking. Cook for 30 mins at 350 degrees. :) Sounds yummy, like if cooked in this it couldn't POSSIBLY be bland.

You are kicking ass with this pouch test. Loving it.

HAHAH Ronnie, Went to type out the receipe and poof it was typed out already :)

I am not a fan of fish, well except for shrimp but when I make the fish like Ronnie suggested I love it!

Hope that helps!

I love fish...I do not love tilapia. I won't go totally into why..but I feel the same way. It is really bland and it gets dry!

I am more of a grouper or halibut kinda gal for white fish!

Sometimes I have issues with cottage cheese myself! It is weird! Other times nada!

Glad to see you're still going strong with helps to be doing it "with" someone ;)
