Weekly Weigh In and Sushi!

Even with all my exercise this week, I still had a gain on the scale.

I am going to chalk it up to the Japanese food I had yesterday for lunch.  (and maybe I had a bit too much fried food this week?! :D) Tony had a friend in town and we met him here.  It’s literally five minutes from my office.

Um, I did not get Japanese noodles with ketchup – ew!

I ordered something different – it was a cold soba noodle dish – it had a vinegar dipping sauce that had stuff you could add to it – like radish and wasabi.

I ate about half of the noodles, and all of the tempura – so light and crunchy!

Tony and his friend did full metal jacket sushi – the piece on the far left is Tony’s favorite – fatty tuna!

It was nice getting together with Tony and his friend for lunch!  And it made my afternoon go by really fast – it’s so sad that its almost dark by the time I get home from work already:

You guys will be JEALOUS!  Check out the price for chicken breasts this week – its scary!!

I have planned for me and my SIL – blackened chicken wraps, crock pot chicken salsa, beef enchiladas and shrimp korma, to name a few things.

And I think I’ll put the deep fryer back in the basement this week!

Stop by tomorrow. . . BSI is back!  I’ll host this week with . . . pumpkin!  Full details in tomorrows post – what do you have going on today?  Make it a great day!

    October 29, 2011 at 4:37 pm Asian food always causes me to retain water. Thats probably it. I notice that you have to buy that chicken in 10lb bags. Is there sodium solution added?

      October 29, 2011 at 4:38 pm Nope! You just have to trim off the fat, so its a little time consuming, but totally worth it. :D

    October 29, 2011 at 5:26 pm Grr! I hate when you are expecting a loss and don't get it. 0.8 is nothin' though :) And that fried chicken you made would be worth that gain any day!!! I love your insulin-worthy comments, they always make me smile :) P.S. I have that Shirmp Korma on my menu soon because of Marisa, too!

    October 29, 2011 at 5:28 pm Mmmmm, I love "hard core" sushi - so delicious. Salmon is my favorite. I'm making a pumpkin recipe today, so this is exciting. I kind of hadn't noticed that BSI wasn't around, but I did always like participating!

    October 29, 2011 at 9:29 pm What the what???? $0.99/lb for chicken = craziness! Just googled spaghetti with ketchup and apparently it's also called Spaghetti Napolitan and very popular in Japan. I'm just curious enough to give it a try!

    October 29, 2011 at 10:33 pm Sorry to say that we were weight loss (gain) twins this week. My WI day is Wed, though and I'm striving to go the other direction this week--we can be twins next week, too!. I totally agree about the early sunsets. And it's only going to get worse when we turn those clocks back . . .
