Hmmm....I thought I posted yesterday, but often I just hit enter after I am done writing and forget to actually post. Yeah...I can be dumb like that sometimes. So here is a weekend recap
I totally effed up this weekend....I was literally forced at gun point to consume a large, sugary, trans-fat laden doughnut. Seriously....they made me. Ok, well perhaps no one made me, but I was stuck in this NRA class all day long and thought it would be a good time to IF...boy was I wrong. There were 3 of those giant sized boxes of beautiful doughnuts and 3 whole pizzas from dominos with the breadsticks for 9 students and 3 instructors. Talk about overkill. Anyways...I ate a doughnut....seriously you don't put that spread out in front of a girl who is on her period...it is just cruel.
Fortunately, no negative side affects for me, I just let it slide instead of feeling like shit about it. Which really made the whole experience much better since I didnt feel the need for corporal punishment. For once I let go and moved on, which is so much better than trying to over-compensate for the damage later. Yay me!
Sunday we went to the country and rode some horses, had a little BBQ with friends and I made uh-mazing chocolate almond cake. Holy balls that stuff made me want to cry it was so delicious!! But wait....theres another surprise behind door number 3, I officially got all of the almond butter out of the house, yep, got all used up on the cake and now it cant taunt me from my fridge! Back to the cake...I bet you want the recipie don't ya?
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1 cup cocoa powder
1 cup almond flour
1/2 tsp salt
1tsp baking soda
3/4 ish cup honey, I used less than that for me it was 1/2 cup and then drizzled more in til I got the taste I want
Now, mix all that shit together and try not to eat all of the batter with a spoon. Grease up an 11 x 7 pan with coconut oil, or whatever pan you want to use, bake at 375 for 25-30ish minutes or until it passes the knife shoved in the middle test. Then enjoy, or if youre smart like me bring it to a BBQ so you don't eat the entire cake by yourself.
Today, I had a my first session with a personal trainer and he hammered on my legs. I don't think I have ever sweat that much ever...it was fantastic! And then to celebrate my awesome awesome-ness I ate a half a bell pepper stuffed with tuna salad and cottage cheese with mandarin oranges. I want dairy back in my diet, since I can tolerate it just fine, I am going to have it. I had thought that it was what makes my skin break out, but when I stopped eating it my skin still broke out a bit. I found out it is because of a hormonal imbalance because it is always on my chin. So...next time I go to the doctor I might switch my "please dont let me get pregnant this month" pills. The progesterone only pill is not working for me, giving me some cycle-issues too, but if you don't have lady parts you do not want to read about that. It makes me wish I was a lesbian sometimes.
Also, I am making salmon and kale for dinner, not glamourous today but I just want to eat fish all week right now. This is a bit of a self-experiment and a bit of a summer reset, since nitrate free sausages, nut products by the gallon, primal chocolate, and copious amounts of poultry are not exactly ideal. I need to start planning better and making lists and all that other good shit that smart shoppers do instead of winging it and playing mad scientist in the kitchen with whatever I madly grab without thinking.
