Ok day for a Saturday....
Hit both TGP and Soulard Farmer's markets. Got everything from kale and swiss chard to oxtail sections and lard. Walked to TGP then biked to Soulard. In the evening I biked to Target and then to the local grocery store. Filled the pannier bags to capacity.
B - ok, ok. I got the breakfast taco at the market again. With the 2 flour totillas and the beans. Chorizo, scrambled egg, 2 kids of salsa, cilantro, and sour cream. They are that good. I also had a boiled egg.
L - Really hungry again for some reason. Got 1/2 lb each of pulled pork and brisket from the BBQ place next to the market. Ate both. And probably had 2 tablespoons of BBQ sauce. It needed the sauce. Dipped, not smothered. Just needed a bit of the taste. And had some pork rinds.
D - Not really hungry after such a large lunch so I just had a couple more pork rinds and a few thin slices of braunschweiger.
Pork rinds! My new favorite! Between them and the baked kale chips I am set for snack food! My tastes must have really changed, 'cause I remember trying some before from the same place and them tasting like burnt fat. Now they are wonderful. Made there on the spot at the market. Very cool.
And I'm not a big fan of liver the times that I've tried it, but I've always loved braunschweiger. Is that an ok way to get liver? Not so sure how all it is processed.
Farted around too much so got my workout in late. 3 rounds trying to hit all 5 essentiall movements. 6 to 8 pull-ups, 40 count plank, 40 squats, 30 push ups, 40 lunges, 40 count side plank, 20 jack-knife push ups, 40 count side plank on other side, and 30 bicycle crunches. I did an extra round of pull ups and push ups, too. In addition I walked a bit over 2 miles total to and from the market, then easy bike 15 to 20 miles to other market then Target. So plenty of moving slowly.
Little brag for the day. Got a new pair of jeans for the first time in years. Harldy ever wear them. Mainly stick with chinos, khakis, etc. And just got cheapo Target whatever the new Levi line is. Anway, tried on a bunch of 34's and they were plenty roomy around the waist. But I guess I even get the effect as an ex-cyclist 'cause the 'straight fit' were too tight on the thighs and butt. And the 'skinny fit' were probably obscene. But still roomy at the waist. So I went with the relaxed fit. But I probably need to take one of my gay friends who dresses *way* better than me to help me get a decent pair of jeans. But I'm guessing I should wait until I'm closer to my goal, or at least level out for a while.
I really should go to bed now. Last night without the kids for a few nights.
