      Actually, yeah, you need to post a recipe for your dinners! I want
      it tastes way better than it looks and I always look forward to it now :d
      Its very simple I boil a pound of an type of meat then chop it into small pieces then I add like 1/8 cup hot sauce or mabye more I have no idea
      :d then I add ~ 2-3 tbsp of tomato sauce and ~2 tbsp of cream and some shredded coconut (optional) and kind of stir fry it

      This recipe works best with fatty meats

        Today was pretty cool
        Bec yest I played scrabble with family and it lssted for 2 hours !! So didnt get a chance to workout so I did yest's workout today in the morning before school the only pissy thing about today though ws for some reason my stomach was having a war have no idea y bt probably its the granola I had yest for supper :/ seriously that was a reason for me to never eat it again

        In bio we finished the GATACA movie im hooked man its very cool , totally recommend

        In sociology I actually came out as "interesting" , out of 15 "meetings" only 2 contained awkward silences bt in my defense these 2 in particular were just talking about how they had a long awkward silence just before they reached me so I probably wasnt the problem bt ya it was prettt cool and I gt to know people way better and actually changed my views on them , I found out that a girl likes basketball like me so will probably make a "date" (ironic :d) with her so we could shoot some hoops together or somethin

        Ya english boring as ever , cant wait until this week is over :d

        Economics im moving up in the ranking of our stock market simulation :d made some bad moves bec I didnt really get how it worked in the beginning bt ya hopefully will get up there (ironically the teacher is in last place :d )

        Work was over prety quickly , I found a way more time effective technique to handing them out bt ya im still waiting for a reply from the jobs I applied to :/

        I went to ymca today with family I decided to do a recovery workut with weights and some cardio that went out well and here is how it went :

        Bench : 60kg x 12 x 3 ( ws planning on 5 bt annoying dude wanted bench :/ )
        Shoulder press machine: 30lb x15x3
        Squats: 60kgx 20 x 3....75kg x 20.....40kgx20 ( very slow down, explode up )
        Leg curl : 50lb x 10 x 3
        Cable abs : 92.5lb x 15 ....92.5x10, 82.5x5.........92.5x9, 87.5x6 (dnt know y my abs just hit a plateau all of a sudden , well there is improvement bt nt like beginning always adding ine block each workout bt I guess bec its a higher level ?? )
        3000m rowing (was planning on 6000 bt sis wanted to play with me volleyball so did that instead )

        On the way home I ws craving DC bt then when I stopped at a store the best I can find was a bounty with dark chocolate so I had a piece and gave rest to family :/ it has cocoblnuts which is good bt it also has added sugars

        Nutrition: breakfast : none
        Lunch : chicken breast +200g baked potato + pear
        Before work I did a granola hot milk thingy bt decided against it after having 2 tbsp :d ) had 2 apples instead
        Dinner : 1/4 cup rice , 1/2 cup peas ( wasnt really in the mood for dinner )
        Supper: 300g potatoes (so cute) an apple and 10g bounty 75% dark chocolat.

          And I think you should go on the date with the girl
          yup I just pretended that I ws "outgoing" like how I am with my friends and it went great , and ill hopefully ask her today in economics bec its the last lesson

          Hahaha we cant do that though we HAVE to invest in something bec if we beat our teacher we get an extra mark and if we get first we get another extra mark (very unlikely after decisions I made bt still trying , damn u apple !! )
          Bt nw im 14 out of 22 not so bad I guess

          THAT'S effin recovery?! Damn!
          I actually wanted to increase the squats bt bec I was sharing bar with sis so these weights were easier to put and u guys should totally try rowing it works the whole body and hurts pretty good :d

          Oh and I used yest free weights in squats bec it wasnt heavy , the reasin I use the smith machine in squats bec it provides safty and perfect form bt will try to start using free weights again ( only started using smith machine after I came to canada )

For the price we pay for them we could get 5 rossitere chickens. But I digress...
          IK those things r FREAKIN DISGUSTING , I used to live off them vefore primal :/ man bad memories ...they were so fuqing dry !!

            Nothing new today except I found out that I am NOT failing English , seriously would have commited suicide if that wss the case srriusly im a 90 average person idk y im having trouble with writing point proof analysis for poetry bt then again im nt a language person either
            Ya and that quiz in bio I did in fact ace it was very happy about that and it actually made my day the teacher however gave us a lollipop pop and I ate it , wow I actually cant remember the last time I had a lollipop its probably been years

            When I went home I had a crapton of newspapers to roll out :/ after that I went out to distribute them and after that I went trick o' treating with the family !! and that counted as my workout bec combined it was 4 hiurs of walking/running :d didnt have any of the candy except 2 jolly ranchers bec they are amazing !!

            My stomach today ws bloated as hell it was so hard too I thought it might explode !! :/ it still is nw bt its kinda better ..... I really need to find out wat gives me a bloat bec a crapton of food does... like seriously anything I eat gives me a bloat sometimes even while im fastiing !?!?!?!

            Nutrition :
            Lunch : chicken breast + 200g sweet potato+apple (like yest bt sweet potato even colored it for u bec camera ws down :d )
            Snack :lollipop + apple
            Dinner:100g potatoes+1/4cup rice +~60g minced meat(not much bt ya)
            Supper:1/4 cup granola :/ (bt tbh I usually have more I think it was just a craving so I let myself have some so I dnt eat the whole kitchen as a substitute) , a pear and coffee oh and 2 jolly ranchers :d

            Have a great day/night guys

              Ya I always use free weights bt in squats bec sometimes when the weight gets really heavy its nt as safe u know ... bec we r tricked into thinking that we r able to do another rep bec going down is easy bt once we get down sometimes we r just stuck there so Idk I guess I dnt want to be the young GIRL who has a lot of weight on the bar and falls with the bar in the middle of the gym ... yup I dnt like to be center of attention especially when it involves a mans ego

              Hahaha I remember in egypt I ws doing barbell lunges and the weight was light or so I thought and then when I went down I tried to come up and I actually fell backwards with the bar still on my shoulders ya I ws actualy laughing through the fall bec I could see myself in the mirror I almost hurt a guy though

              The reasin I said this in the beginning ws bec while I ws squating with the 120kg the lady beside me squating with 30kg free weights ws telling her biyfriend that the smith machine does all the work for u and thats the reason I ws lifting so heavy ! The annoying thing is I ws standing right there!?!? and she ws talking in a loud voice :/ like seriously people stop being so disrespectful at least nt while im right there :what:
              The only thing that the smith machine elimnates id the need fir balance so ya nt a HUGE factor and anyway I could squat it with free weights I just prefer good form than knees ahead of toes

                HAHAHA I already had a pear !

                      ?Today ws pretty shitty !!
                      My stomach is killing me fornsome reason that is yet to be known :/ a bloat with pain :/ it kinda feels like when u drink craptons of water until ur stomachn is going to explode and there is a sharp pain And u feel nauseous :/

                      as I said I forgot my debit today so couldn't buy lunch I was very hungry when I came home , there ws no food at home so basically I ate evrythingn in sight .... it started with a bowlnof hot granola ...then a snack box of 6mini breadsticks and tbsp chedder spread..... then 3 boiled eggs ...... and I tried an old remedy of 4 tbsp of honey formy stomach bloat (worked perfectly before for me bt this time nothing btbi guess its pretty clear y nt :/) the most disgusting thing about it all was it felt exacrly like my old binges that were followed by a trip to the bathroom with a fork :/

                      Luckily I had work so went for a long walk with music to clear my head in great weather .... when I got home I cleaned my room and gt dressed to go outn with family.... they had noodles while ibhad an omelette and a few shrimps so nw I'm out and I'm craving DC will probably have 30g mabye

                      In terms if calories nt so bad (1900) bt in terms of quality I did shit :/ and the bad thing is I ws conscious about my choices bt did them anyway :/ I'm nt upset bt I am regretful which will probably make me nt do it again and it really reminded me y I started primal in first place

                      Bec that food just makes me hungry and feel like crap so I'm grateful I found marks website

                      Nutrition :
                      Breakfast : pear
                      Lunch: pear
