Got the bounce: weight is up 1/2 lb: 182.2 today from 181.7 yesterday. I should confess that last night I had a fair amount of fish—12 oz minimum of Pacific sword fish and sockeye salmon—in a salad of greens, half a Vidalia sweet onion, and 1/2 cup black rice. The dressing was 2 Tbsp of olive oil with paprika, salt, pepper, a clove of crushed garlic, 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard, and white wine vinegar, shaken vigorously in a small jar and then poured over. Also a half-bottle (split) of chardonnay, with a dry pint of fresh red raspberries for dessert. So I celebrated, and the gain could be that or simply the bounce.
But today I’m making a new batch of grub—finished the last of the two-greens grub yesterday. I will use the rest of the swordfish and salmon I bought in this grub, but I’m adding it at the very end, so it doesn’t get stirred to pieces as the grub cooks. Recipe (probably “description” is a better word) later.
This morning I suddenly felt overwhelmed by the shaving equipment and supplies I’ve accumulated, so in a couple of months I’m going to have a big sale and get rid of a lot of it. More on that later. But I really want to cut back. I have bought things one at a time to try them out so I could write about them in the book, but if you do that over a long enough time, you end up with a lot. (The same idea behind a regular savings program.) Time to trim back.
