- Various samples of the food I cooked for the dinner party we're having at work tomorrow - curried chicken cauliflower salad and fruit salad. I have no idea the nutritional stats on this, but I know it was generally WLS-friendly. I used nonfat Fage to replace mayo in the chicken salad. The flavors in this food are bangin'! The chicken salad has chicken breast (obvi), cauliflower, onion, fennel fronds, caramelized fennel, raw fennel, golden raisins, blackcurrants, garlic, garam masala, curry powder, Splenda, cumin, coriander, mace, paprika, Worcestershire sauce, apple cider vinegar, lots of nonfat Fage yogurt and - some other stuff. It was 3 AM when I finished making it; I'm not sure what's in it exactly! The fruit salad's contents are even more ambiguous, but I know it has cherries, blueberries, golden raspberries, apples, persimmons, apricots, dried mission figs, golden raisins, blackcurrants, kumquat zest, fresh ginger, a few pomegranate seeds, and unsweetened coconut in a sauce made with cherry juice, tangerine juice, yuzu juice, tamarind paste, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, mace, Splenda, vanilla flavoring, maple flavoring, DaVinci butter rum syrup, brown Nature Sweet, and whatever else I had laying around the kitchen that seemed to be a good idea at the time. If I could do it over, I would axe the fresh apricots and use dried. I probably would have also bought orange segments to add to the salad. The biggest thing is that I would have added the golden raspberries last - by the time I mixed everything together, they had basically become part of the sauce. I should have known better. Let's hope my boss and co-workers enjoy the food . . .

I got up early and dragged out of the bed, leaving enough time for an hour-long cardio workout. I got to my office (where I usually work out) and the security gate is broken. Someone let me in another gate, but when I got to the gym entrance, the door was broken (???) So I just come to my office, change here into my regular clothes, and call it quits on the morning workout effort. I was so proud of myself for getting myself back in gear on the exercise front, but to no avail. I had to go to the grocery store after work and cooked until 3 AM, so there was no time to exercise after work.
