Richmond wedding

This weekend was all about grinnellian2001 's wedding. I had a good time shooting her rehearsal dinner and rehearsal... and also enjoying her open bar!

We played board games, including with the B&G after the wedding was over, till 3 am. That was so much fun.

I shared a room and a bed with my friend Craig (he's gay, so no threat!) and a lot of our conversation stayed on weight loss. He's lost 45 lbs this year. I remember hanging out with him when we both very young and I was still in the SCA, and we would see how a majority of the SCAdians were obese, and Craig had said: "Shoot me if I ever get that fat." Well, he got pretty chubby the last few Pennsics I saw him, and I didn't say anything, neither did I shoot him. But then he was gifted Weightwatchers last Christmas, and now he's the slim, vain, Craig that I remember.

Anyways, he did inspire me though, so I'm back on a diet! Again! I took a break after my wedding, and now back to counting calories. Sigh.

I totally understand the vanity thing. I need to be done with moving house so I can get back to working out (because I refuse to watch what I eat) again.

I'm not fat by anyone's standards (including my own) but I am carrying more squish than I wish I were...

Yeah, vanity is a huge motivation though. Esp in the summer bathing suit season.

I think tonight I'll experiment with some veggie mushroom stir fry and see if I can make it yummy.

I tried cooking with both shiitake and portabella. I think shiitake was the winner!

I ended up making avocado with some onion and tomatoes, pepper, salt. (Guacamole)

And then a tiny bit of salmon, and then onions, the rest of the tomato, shiitake and portabella.

It turned out really delicious. So far I'm very filled. I guess an entire avocado is filling, and only 250-300 calories.

That sounds fantastic!

Also on my list for after I move is to go back to making my own food. I miss cooking.
