    Yeah, no snow, and it's been around -2 C here lately. I'll take the "milder" weather too

    Yeah, that's the same feeling.

    Wednesday
    Food

    Chai with whipping cream
    Greensprout’s “Italian Soda”
    Meatloaf, scalloped potatoes, squash
    I chocolate covered cheesecake bite, 2 Dark Toberone triangles

    Avoid Poisons & Stupid Mistakes
    I know it seems like I'm having a fair amount of whipping cream lately. That’s because I have a LOT in my fridge. I’d bought 3 cartons for a New Years Eve dessert – frozen raspberries and whipping cream – but everyone was so full from supper that we didn’t eat it.

    Move Slowly, Lift Heavy, Sprint
    No. I thought about it…

    Sleep, Sun, Play, and Use Your Brain
    11:30 – 9:00

    I got up and I stayed UP! I KNOW!
    I did some laundry, organized some stuff on my Mac, and marked some of my Home Instruction student’s stuff.

    College Son came home at noon with my Beetle. They slept over at a friend’s place in the city.

    I liked the “Italian Soda”. It reminded me of a Rootbeer Float.

    One small plate of supper left me feeling full - I didn't finish my squash. Not however, full enough to skip the Chocolate

    For some weird (but wonderful) reason known only to the Gods of Chocolate, Dark Toberone triangles do NOT upset my stomach
    Truffles do, but not Toberone…

    Last edited by winencandy; 01-04-2012 at 05:18 PM. Reason: added the beautiful photo of a Toberone Bar (not my photo)

    I love toblerone but how do you eat it without it poking a hole in your mouth?

    Hahahaha!

    You don't pop the whole triangle in your mouth at once, silly
    Baby bites
    It lasts longer that way.

    My Farmer brought in a 1/2 bottle of red wine that's been rolling around in the back of his truck since New Years Eve.
    It's still good, right???

    Hang on, I'll let you know

    Thursday
    Food

    This:

    A leftover pork loin (100g), 2 scrambled egg, onion, yellow pepper stir-fry “thing”
    A Dark Toberone triangle
    Red Wine
    Baked Haddock (200g), roasted veggies, leftover hashbrown casserole (that my farmer found in the fridge from New Years Day) frozen raspberries and whipping cream, and one dark Toberone triangle.

    (Rough) Desired Goals
    Total calories = 1345
    Desired protein: 70g
    Desired carbs: 75g
    Desired fat grams: 85g

    CRONoMeter #’s
    Total calories = 1551
    Desired protein: 98g
    Desired carbs: 93g
    Desired fat grams: 64g

    Avoid Poisons & Stupid Mistakes
    I entered the #’s because I was curious about how much protein I was getting.
    2 triangles of Toberone = 260 calories and 30g carbs
    sigh...

    PBF Levels:
    L3 Pushp – 25
    L3 Pullup –reverse hold for 2 seconds, lower for 4 seconds - 4 chin-ups

    Sleep, Sun, Play, and Use Your Brain
    11:30 – 10:15am

    Surfed the net, made lunch (for a change)*
    Bought a new stove!
    Why? Why do they put STUPID stickers on the front of the stove?

    I got it off - I love Goo Gone

    Look at that cook top!


    I drank the Red Wine that’s been rolling around in the back of the truck since New Years Eve…

    University Son called at 4:40. Second day of his Co-op placement and his car won’t start. He left the lights on…multiple calls later…and after failed attempts to boost it, he got a ride home with his boss and left his car there for the night…so my Farmer decided to get him CAA…too bad he can’t use it for 48 hours.

    *On the days I have a Chai with whipping cream (around noonish) I’m not hungry till suppertime and I eat a smaller supper. Today, no Chai & whipping cream and I ate a big lunch and then a big supper…hmmm
