R3 Phase 4 Day 26

Weight - 145.6

LoL  well I called it.  Some of it was the late late night meal, the starch, the sugars, and the lack of output for the last 2 days.

It is what it is.  I'm thinking about what's in my house I need to eat or will be forced to toss in the next 5 days.  Also about what I might want to have.  I chose a couple of Nathan's hot dogs for lunch.  Dinner is going to be my first attempt ever at seared ahi tuna.

Did manage to get a 4 mile walk in this afternoon.  Would have done more but one of the girls with me couldn't do much more.

Lunch - (653 calories, estimated)
2 Nathan's Hot Dogs complete with buns, mustard, ketchup and onions
2 cups coffee with 1 tbsp half & half in each

Dinner - (623 calories)
**Seared Ahi Tuna & cucumber salad
250 g yellowfish tuna steak
2 tsp San-J Organic Wheat Free Tamari sauce, low sodium
1 tbsp sesame seeds
pepper to taste
1 tbsp light olive oil

2 tbsp mayonnaise
2 tsp wasabi paste

350 g cucumber, sliced thin
3 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tsp San-J Organic Wheat Free Tamari sauce, low sodium

Combine cucumber, vinegar, and soy and let marinate a bit.   Drizzle soy sauce on tuna and let sit for a couple of minutes.  While waiting, combine mayonnaise and wasabi paste.   Pepper both sides of the tuna, then coat lightly with sesame seeds.  Heat a skillet to medium and add olive oil.  Sear tuna for 1 minute on both sides then also sear around the edges.  Slice tuna on a diagonal to serve.

  1. One of the things I love Beth about your blog is not only the pictures, but what you decide to cook. You've opened my eyes to a whole new world of foods that I'm not sure I would have tried except for your post and pictures!

  2. Thanks. There are things I'd never thought I'd eat, let alone cook since starting HCG. Ahi tuna is a recent addition to my eating so I thought I'd try it at home. I think next time I might make the pan just a bit hotter.
