  • Ok, I'm just going to type what I've eaten. The past two days have been busy with out new family member, Roxy. I also don't remember exactly everything I ate yesterday. I tried to fast for as long as I could, but it didn't work out too well.

    Yesterday
    B: Bacon, not sure how many pieces and some pork sausage
    L: Chicken with melted cheese and guacamole
    S: Uhm, I forgot
    D: Wendy's Berry Almond Chicken Salad with homemade dressing
    Drinks: Water and Unsweetened iced tea
    Exercise: Walking the dog

    Today
    B: 2 pcs bacon, 1 fried egg and some pork sausage
    S: Kind Fruit and Nut bar, one little cookie thing, Banana and some Nutella (yes, I know I shouldn't have)
    L: Did I have lunch? I don't think I did
    S: Oh, more sweets. Two of these little coconut macaroon things that i found at Natural Grocers and one Coconut Secret Bar
    D: Pork tender loin, some german potato salad, and brussell sprouts. Mom made some homemade ice cream and I had some of that too.

    Oh yeah, today, I sang with the worship choir that got to sing with the worship band at the main service. Two services. Wow, I didn't realize singing up there like that could drain a little energy out of you, especially when you're filled with the Spirit! Phew! Good stuff this morning.

        • Yes, indeed it is. I've sang with the choir at my old church, the Episcopal one I used to go to. This is different for me with the whole band thing.

          • Another long 10 hour day at work, but we made it through. Got a great dose of vitamin D today. Need a job that will give you plenty of outside work? Work on the flight line

            So, I forgot how much I like having a dog around the house. She's passed out near my feet after a walk this evening. Gabi's chilling in my living room watching this American Ninja Warrior's. My little apt feels just a little more like home now. Not saying Gabi's not enough, just saying that having Roxy brings some extra energy to the place

            We went to the Crossfit 806 gym today to check them out. I like them and Gabi's interest seemed to be engaged. So, next month we'll start a two week course to get us introduced. I'm excited!

            Food wise, let's just say I remembered the reason why I don't bring home treats.... It's okay though, when tomorrow comes, I'll just start again

            Today
            B: 4 pcs bacon, two fried eggs with some leeks
            S: 1 avocado, some macadamia nuts, and 1 merry fruit macaroon
            L: Can of salmon with sour cream, salt, and garlic mixed. Salad with homemade dressing
            S: Ohh, I forgot, but now I Remember I went a little crazy on some pork rinds. Like 6 servings worth
            S: Uhm 5 more of the merry fruit macaroons. Mental note to self, it's just the same as bringing home ice cream. Don't bring the treats home to space out during the week. It doesn't work.
            D: Fajita steak and asparagus.
            Drinks: One cup sweetened tea. The rest was unsweetened tea and water

            Exercise:
            PEM Push ups Squats Plank Calf Raises Supermans Pull ups Chin ups
            25 assist 50 1:32 30 20 2 3

            Swam for about 10 minutes. Took dog for about 1 mile walk.

                  • Aww, what a cutie dog!
                    My Story As It Unfolds

                    Comment


                    • Well, the past few days have been a stress party at work, but we have this weekend off. I didn't feel like too much typing on the net so that's why I haven't been on here as much. I did finally get around to getting the oil change done in my truck. Mental note to self, need to get new bolt for oil pan and remember new trick learned for getting an over tightened oil filter off. As someone who works on helicopters for a living, I'm a bit ticked that the bolt on my oil pain appeared to be slightly rounded from the last person who changed my oil. I wouldn't leave that on one of my birds, it shouldn't be left on my truck that way. Thankfully my downstairs neighbor has a friend who's a mechanic and showed me a new trick for the oil filter itself. There's no need to gorilla tighten a filter or forget to put lube on the edge. Oh well, I'm doing this work from now on, I know it'll get done now.

                      So, I'm going to try to remember what I ate from two days ago. I don't write this stuff down so I can write it on here later. I just go with it.

                      Thurs
                      B: 6 pcs bacon and some italian sausage
                      S: 1 small avocado, some cashews
                      L: Leftover chicken, broccoli, and sauce for the chicken. Salad and homemade dressing
                      S: Hmm, not sure exactly what I had. Maybe pork rinds
                      D: Pork tenderloin in a tart dried cherry sauce with some zucchini
                      Drinks: Water
                      Exercise
                      Walk with about 7 sprints
                      PEM: Push ups Squats Plank Calf Raises Pull ups Chin Ups
                      25 50 1:32 30 2 3
                      25 50 1:21 30 1 2

                      Fri:
                      B: 6 pcs bacon
                      S: Mix of chopped walnuts and pecans, then some pistachios. Somewhere in between breakfast and snack, I ate a whole Lindt 85% bar
                      L: Barely touched it. I wanted to throw up for some reason, but couldn't. I had some ham steak from a salad I bought, but I couldn't eat anymore of that. I finished off the pistachios
                      D: I woudn't really call it dinner. I was still a bit off. So, I had some potato wedges and they seemed to help. Along with whatever homemade chips Famous Dave's makes. Probably not the best option considering what oil they cook those in, but it calmed my tummy down.
                      Drinks: Water and unsweetened iced tea.
                      Exercise: Walking the dog in the evening. I didn't take her out in the morning because I was tired and slept in!

                              • Yesterday, I didn't feel like doing much, so I didn't. I just wasn't up for being to serious, but the oil did get changed!

                                Yesterday
                                Well, I'm going to try to remember, again, what I had. I'll just list what comes to mind instead of the meal times I ate them at. 1 Coconut Secret Bar, 2 dates, Fajita burgers and salad, coconut water, some cashews, and water

                                Today
                                4 pcs bacon, 1 pc of ghiradelli dark chocolate, abc burger (avocado, bacon, and cheese burger) with a dinner salad, some smoked gouda cheese, fried pork rinds, Beef Moussaka (eatingwell recipe), and mom's bavarian cream with cherries and blueberries. Oh, I had another coconut secret bar today. Might have gone a little overboard with the sugar, but I did take Roxy for a walk. Challenge tonight with her! It's hard to train her when she's getting sidetracked by Gabi, who was hyper from dessert. Little stinker.

                                I did work out this morning, but only one set. I'll post more tomorrow.
