Not So Tasty Squash

I used my leftover stuffing from my Stuffed Pumpkin the other night to stuff my kabocha squash. I added some sunflower kernels we bought for salads to the mix. The squash was too bitter to really taste good. My wife says I am obsessed with kabochas... I do not believe this to be true. We have only bought them three times. This is twice now that they just have not tasted good. I think I am done with them now. One magical squash was tasty, the rest of them are just too bitter. The sunflower kernels on the other hand were a delicious addition to my stuffing mix. They may find their way into more of my mixed meat and veggi dishes.

When my youngest daughter went down for her nap my 2 year old and I did some body weight exercises in the living room. She loved making circles with her arms and her assisted sit ups. She especially loved watching me do jumping jacks... she ran circles around me screaming the whole time. She is a very random kid.

My Meals Today:

My appetite has been crazy today. Everything looks good enough to eat.

12 oz. Tri-Tip
B.A.S. (Big Ass Salad)
12x Grape Tomatos
3x tablespoons of Marie's Ranch

1/2 Orange

1/4 Stuffed Kabocha Squash
1.5 cups of Brocholi and Cauliflower

3 oz. salted Cashews

  1. No Sugar. I will give myself an A. I ate an orange, but I am not going to count fruit as raw sugar.
  2. No Grains. I will give myself a B. There was some rice in my stuffed squash.
  3. Move around a little every day. I have to give myself a C. I did play with my kids, but it was nothing significant. I did a few sets of side-straddle hops which had me beat.
  4. Move really fast every once in a while. Another day without sprints.
  5. Lift heavy things. I will give myself a B. I worked up a sweat and I can feel it in my arms.
Overall Grade: B About time I started having better days. Now let's keep it up.
