Unfortunately I seared the scallops in olive oil and butter, so I had to add on an additional 100 cal.! 5 large scallops weighed 8 0z. What's up with people that only eat 1 oz of chicken in a meal??? Sometimes when I read other blogs that's what I come accross. One ounce??? I know what that looks like, yes it's more than you would think, but that's starvation! I think if you can't afford to eat at least 2 ounces in a meal then you need to re-evaluate what else you might be doing wrong.

The key to maintinence is to find a way of eating that you can live with the rest of your life.

Life is glorious, not tortuous.

I agree with you Tracy. Finding a way of eating you can live with is the key. No matter how fancy schmancy a certian diet is, if you can't maintain it, it won't last.

Great post!

Great training today Tracy! I'm going to try the neg press with a snatch tomorrow.

Here are my thoughts on the Scallops... You have to go for the fat, fat carries flavor. The 100 calories are worth it!

Christine said...

olive oil is *always* worth it! :)Just one PLer's opinion. :)

Nice workout.

Tracy Reifkind said...

Franz, I love the food I eat! I can eat it the rest of my life, and that I know will keep my weight managable and level of health consistant.

Tracy Reifkind said...

Fawn, When I practice neg presses I concentrate on really "pulling" the weight down. It helps make me stronger in my postitive presses.

I never skimp on olive oil or butter! One of the reasons is because when I went to Italy, for some cooking classes, we used sooooo much olive oil, and I ate soooo much good food and I didn't gain any weight! There's something in the oil!

That along with my belief that fats are NOT the problem (with weight loss) keeps my food full of flavor.

fawn said...

Good! I'm glad you aren't one of those people who are afraid of fat... should have known that, we talked food before.

Do you make your own mayonnaise? I do, Aaron considers it a health food, ha!

Tracy Reifkind said...

I don't use enough mayo to make it on a regular basis, do you have measurments to make a smal1 amount?

But I am a "chicken stock nazi"! I'm making some right now.
