90 Day Fitness Challenge Update and Salad with Tuna and Asparagus Recipe

The local gym I workout at is having a 90 day fitness challenge to get us whipped into bathing suit shape just in time for summer. We are already a week into the challenge. The focus of the challenge is to make better eating choices and workout at least 3 times a week. There will be different categories for winners. It is more for fun and a helpful motivator. I thought it would be good to document healthy meals, snacks, desserts for future reference.

I wish I could say I will be on a strict food plan, but honestly, that's just not me at all. I am very impulsive, compulsive and don't follow directions well. I try to make good choices where I can, so I can enjoy the finer foods without paying the price. In other words, I like to eat cake, and brownies, and candy, so I avoid certain things in order to consume them. I will be trying really hard to eat less of these evil treats, but I cannot promise I will exclude them entirely.

So, here is my first recipe post. It's a simple salad with tuna and broiled asparagus. 
Tuna Salad
Green Leaf Lettuce, rinsed, dried and cut
1/2 Tomato, chopped
Tiny bit of Parmesan cheese
Sprinkle of Tony's Chacherone's Seasoning

Broiled Asparagus
Lay the asparagus in a small baking dish, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with Tony's Chacherone's cajun seasoning. Broil until tender. You can eat the asparagus with your hands or cut it up and put it on your tuna salad. 

*In order to keep it light, avoid salad dressings.
