Weight Loss: Day 21

Day 21: Kale is awful

So today I started eating “for my blood type” as the dieting information says. I thought I would try something new. I had been going over what I’ve been eating and I had come to the conclusion that there are certain things that I should try switching up in my diet.

One of those things to add…

Kale

Day 21: Kale Is Awful

Oh Kale, how awful you are. The taste, nothing to write home about. The texture- sharp and tough. I had the hardest time chewing through it. It was like I went out to the tree outside- you know, the one with the really pointy and sharp leaves- and I just started chewing and chewing and it’s almost as bad as chewing on glass. Not that I’ve done that before. But I can only imagine it would be something like that.

I was talking with my friend Mel about it, and she said that there is a softer type of kale, and maybe I got a different kind? I had just tasted kale for the first time last week when she gave me a bite of her salad, and let me tell you- this was nothing like that kale salad.

Maybe it’s like spinach where there is regular spinach and baby spinach.

Is there baby kale?

Either way… I don’t think this kale I bought will be purchased again. I did, however, buy a bunch of spinach and that tasted just fine. No issues with it. I combined it with the kale and tried chomping through the leaves. Added in some raspberries for something more sweet, less bitter. It made for an ok lunch. Or at least I was able to get through it…

As for the rest of the day, I think that kale really filled me up. I haven’t been hungry all day. I bought some of that Ezekiel bread too, and that tasted pretty good. Had it with almond butter during lunch, and with Farmer’s cheese as a snack before dinner.

And my weigh in this morning:

Total calories consumed today: 1205

It was really warm today. I had a hard time getting myself out to walk on my lunch but since Mel was here today, I was able to get myself walking with her encouragement. I’m worried that since she wont be back until Monday next week, and even so she’ll just be here to check in then head home, that I wont be able to find the motivation to continue walking everyday.

It’s supposed to be in the mid 90s all week. I’m a Californian, we whine about the weather being anything other than 75 F. At least I do… I’m not looking forward to the heat. Is it fall yet?
