Happy Fat Tuesday to you and you and YOU. Throw me some beads, would ya? And I’ll reveal… that I had waffles ALL DAY LONG today.
Waffles with strawberry compote.
Waffles with vanilla ice cream and blackberries.
Waffles with a tropical fruit salad and coconut yogurt.
Waffles with saffron & rosewater ice cream and pistachios.
Palate cleanser: Havarti.
Waffles with more vanilla ice cream, bananas and maple syrup.
Waffles with strawberry Jello.
Palate cleanser: a pancake and more Havarti.
Waffles with vanilla yogurt, raisins and walnuts.
Palate cleanser: Havarti and Brie.
Seriously. Shrove Tuesday is OVER, thank goodness, and the delightfully Spartan season of Lent is upon us. Forty days and forty nights of thinking about what I’ve done/become…lol.
On another fat note, I had my fat composition done by some great scientific types over at the University of Alberta. They do public testing on Wednesdays, and I took the plunge (literally) to find out where I stand, all scale-battles aside.
The process is really kinda cool. You are first weighed. Then you are tested to see how much air you can expel from your lungs. THEN the real fun begins as you shimmy into your bathing costume, sit on a metal chair with a weight belt across your lap, blow out every last breath and are then lowered UNDERWATER for 10 seconds while they get a reading.
Yes, there is math involved in all this.
Long story short, my body fat composition is sitting at a hefty 37%. I’ve got some work to do! Let’s make a plan……….
Happy FAT TUESDAY! Woot!
