I Like Fat

Last week of my Fit Chicks boot camp.  I hoped and prayed that last night’s session would be canceled.  It was not.  Why oh why did I have such a gluttonous weekend?  I knew the rain was punishing me for all my indulgences.  Why oh why did I write that big commitment post last Tuesday?  I knew I couldn’t bail no matter what the weather.

I grabbed a snack of peanut butter, a ginger cookie (which I ended up hating and not eating), and a cup of hot apple cider.

Then I put on a series of clothes that I knew were going to get soaking wet.  I spent the better half of thirty minutes sulking and whining and pouting.

Brad made me go anyways.  What a jerk!  It was only 15 degrees out last night (that’s 59 degrees Fahrenheit.)

There ended up being four of us at session.  I didn’t bring my camera.  I’m sure you understand why.  My Fit Chick sergeant kept telling us how HARDCORE we were.  I guess that pumped up my ego enough for the pouting to stop.  It must have been a great workout because I’m super sore today.  I came straight home, stripped off my clothes (I think I started before I even got in my apt door), put on some pajamas and was left with this rat’s nest of a head.

I also decided to make the longest dinner of life.  This was my second post boot camp squash soup extravaganza.  This time it involved acorn squash.

Fatty McFatterson Acorn Squash Soup

  • one acorn squash, roasted
  • half a white onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 cup water

Roast the acorn squash and let cool.  Scoop into blender with coconut milk and blend.  Pour into large pot.  Slowly cook onion in a bit of oil.  Add salt and cumin and cook until onion is soft.  Put 1 1/2 cups cold water in blender, add onion mixture and blend.  Pour into large pot.  Simmer altogether for 20 minutes.

Have you ever made soup with coconut milk?

    Isn’t it a bit mean to be scheduling this on a Monday?!

    I find Sundays and Tuesdays to be the most hardcore-work-out friendly days. ;)

  2. I agree with Andie- something like that scheduled for Monday would just be awful! Hooray for you for going!

    And I’ve used coconut milk a little- but not much. There wasn’t much experimentation going on with it, so I plan to use it again once I find a few good recipes…

  3. “Have you ever made soup with coconut milk?”

    No, but now I’m going to!!!

  4. I ate a ginger cookie for breakfast too……..now I’m nursing my little man and watching Bridget Jones Diary on E!. Needless to say I’ve just decided my life is probably the most incredible life ever.

    Also, you need to wear your hair down more often because it is SO beautiful!

    Your hair does look great! That’s wonderful you went to the bootcamp. Meanwhile, I’m wondering If I will make it to mine later given the rain that’s expected (hey, I’m in Miami and there’s a tropical storm expected!)

    It was a rough night, but we love a tough chick like yourself! :)
    Wicked job fending off rain and bugs! It’s definitely getting time to head indoors….
