Taking a Break

As you may have guessed, I'm taking a break from the blog for a while.  I won't abandon it entirely but there's too much other stuff going on right now.  See you again soon.

Yay!  I broke 50 lbs this week!  This is my first week off the cleanse and my first week ramping my mileage back up to normal.  I found that my body really missed the shakes as yucky as they are and that I was very hungry this week.  As the week has gone on, though, I feel like my body has settled down a little bit.  I'm adjusting to the different foods that I either can't eat or shouldn't eat as often.  To that end, I roasted my first turkey yesterday.  It came our pretty well, though the breast meat is dry. 
Let me tell you, I find a whole turkey to be a bit daunting both to cook and deal with afterwards.  There's just so much of it!  I have a plan, though.  I'm going to take all the meat off.  I'm going to make soup with the carcass and probably use the white meat in the soup since it is so dry.  I'll freeze the dark meat and the soup in measured portions so that I just have to pull out servings to thaw when I need them.  It should last me a good long while!
So, here I go off into the brave new world of eating according to my food allergies.  I'll be interested to see how my body reacts over time.
