    B: 1/2 cup yogurt 1/4 cup pecans

    L: BAS, 2 left over hamburger cinders

    D: 2 more patties, more burger than cinder

    S: pecans, and I freakin inhaled @ 9 squares of TJ Dark Chocolate....... yeah... puts me about 500 calories over my goal for today, but I nailed the macro ratios! Small victories, small victories.... I'll take what I can get

    • Friday:

      What a freakin nightmare! Driving to work was insane. It started snowing @ 9pm, and by the time I got on the road (@ 11) parts of the road were covered to the point that the lane markings were invisible..... and it's night, and a rural road (Plow? yeah, out in the field... but not the right kind!) Challenging? lol, yeah.... and I have pucker marks in my cloth car seats! I can imagin what going home will be like.... hopefully better since all the rednecks in their big arsed trucks will have made the road visible again.... OK, that's not a slam against rednecks... I are wun...

      Today will be push ups and leg lifts. Indoors, after letting chickens out.... I will post results later.

      Diet:

      B: 1/2 cup yogurt, 2 sausage patties

      L: BAS, the last of the hamcinder patties... thank the gods THATS over!

      D: Will probably make some soup.... snowy days make me crave a good hearty soup

      S: pecans

      • Dang, it turned out gorgeous today! Snow is melted, and the air is a bit nipply, but not too bad.

        Finished my Pushups and leg raises. Did 3 sets of knee pushps at 40, 26 and 18. Did 3 sets of flat bent knee raises at 25 reps per set.

          It was a scheduled rest day, but I felt froggy so I opted for a 3 mile run. I missed my 3 mile interval run earlier in the week due to weather, so I made up for it today. I finished in 32:50..... my fastest time yet. Yeah!

          L: BAS, hamburger patties

          • Sunday:

            A long slow run on the schedule. Planned on doing 6 miles, but opted for 5 because of the run yesterday, and Monday is squats... Ran the 5 miles about a minute per mile faster than last weekend. Legs are tired but not trashed.

            Diet:

            B: yogurt, scrambled eggs, sausage patties

            L: BAS, vegetable soup

            D: BAS, home made meat loaf

            S: pecans, 72% dark chocolate

            • Monday:

              Today is a squat and pull up day. completed 2 sets of 50 full squats. I did them a little slower than usual, and my legs felt it! Completed 3 sets of 35 horizontal pulls. Completed 4 sets of 40 bent knee calf raises. Felt pretty good through out. The workout got interupted for an egg sale and a long discussion with the buyer about local food, etc etc etc. I may have found a customer for meat chickens, as well as for eggs! Gotta love walk-in customers!!!

              Diet:

              B: 1/2 cup yogurt, hand full of pecans

              L: Left over stir fry with bok choy and beef

              D: Short day, fasted since I was sleeping.

              S: pecans

              • Tuesday:
                A rest day. Took a drive to deliver some eggs, then home to relax. Ahhhh.... the problem with relaxing, is that I sometimes get a little bored, and when bored I eat, not because I'm hungry but because I am bored outta my freakin skull. Sometimes the eating is "healthy" or primal.... but eating a whole bag of pecans isn't going to help my weight loss. Spring can't get here soon enough. When it does I will be busier than a one legged man at a fanny kicking contest.

                Diet:

                B: Meatloaf, 2 slices

                L: 2 hamburger patties and a small sweet potato

                D: 1 cup of vegetable beef soup

                S: a couple of handfulls of pecans, and peanuts

                    Scheduled for a 3 mile run today...... It's @ 30 degrees with a 15 miile an hour wind.... brings to mind an old nautical saying about brass monkeys and cold weather, so I opted for a 1 mile "sprint" instead..... 10:53 minutes.... not hours hmmm and it was about the time I started too.... but it is waaaay to cold for this fat old guy to be out running...... I'd ratther stay in the house and drink beer... uh bone broth, sorry for the slip there...

                    Diet:

                        • Friday:

                          Drive to work was un-eventful, since it stopped snowing about 10 minutes after it started.... Today, that is a different story. Calling for 1" of the frosted rain this afternoon and in to the night. With temps in the mid to low 30s most of this week, the ground is pretty cold, so this stuff isn't gonna melt right away...... and there might be enough to go out and make snow midgets....

                          Looked in the box my new yogurt maker was shipped in, and a catalog for the company that the maker came from was included.... Midwest Supplies.... a home brew company.... I recently gave all my brew stuff to my youngest so I have no use for the catalog. It did stir salivation, not salvation, looking at all the brew kits though...some yummy looking stuff there.

                          Today I will be dodging snowflakes while performing squats and horizontal body rows. Will post exercise results later.

                          Diet:

                          B: yogurt, 2 hotdogs, cold and plain

                          L: BAS, canned tuna w/dill relish and mayo

                          D: baked chicken is the plan

                          S: Pecans

                          Will have to make a trip to the feed store (animal & human fed).... need more salad stuffs and moo juice for yogurt.

                            Well, there is about 2" of snow on the ground. It's pretty, and it's cold and the sky looks like it wants to crap more of the white stuff. Fortunately, the winds are calm. I opened all of the chicken houses this morning and they are staying inside.... who said chickens are stupid.... I threw them some of their favorite treats out on the snow..... they stayed inside...

                            Today is a rest day, and with the weather like it is, looks like it's gonna be a reading day. I have some good reading material on my Kindle, so I may have to curl up with the Kindle and read some John Stuart Mill, or Marcus Aurilieas....

                            Diet:

                            B: scrambled eggs, sausage patties, yogurt

                            L: BAS, left over chickeen

                            D: BAS, pot roast

                            S: pecans, walnuts

                            I put some Coconut oil in my coffee this AM. Interesting flavor. The 2nd cup had heavy cream. I prefer the flavor of the cream. The higher fat content of my morning libation has resolved any colorectal retention issues..... yeah, I know TMI.....

                              Yesterday was kinda nice. Cold, but the winds were calm. The temp today is supposed to be several degrees higher than yesterday, so a vast majority of the snow will melt. Today is a long run day, hopefully most of the snow and ice is gone from the road when I head out. Running on ice? yeah, not my favorite activity....

                              D: Short day, fasting

                              S: pecans, walnuts
