    Monday

    Today will be a run day. It is significantly cooler, so I anticipate much less of a problem finishing the 5 miles today than the last time I jogged that distance.

    Diet: B: Roast beast.... yum!

    S: 1/2 cup yogurt w/ strawberry preserves

    L: More roast beast w/ mushrooms and onions

    D: BAS w/ baked chicken leftovers

    Wt: 244 Lost 3 lbs this week! I now weigh what I weighed when I retired from the Navy 13 years ago!

    Just finished my jog..... 5 miles..... well, more like 4 3/4 miles but my ego likes 5 miles better! Anyway, finished 5 minutes faster than the first time I jogged the same course. It is 20 degrees cooler and a misty rain. Yeah the rain was a motivational factor!

    Wednesday

    Today was a circuit day. Got started a little later in the day than normal, but it worked out for the best. The day started out gray and misty and by the time I got in to my exercise togs it was partly cloudy and the mist had burned off. The temp was perfect. A great day to be outside. I finished my 3 sets of 25 squats, 20 pushups, 20 body rows, and 20 situps. I think that next week I will increase the push ups and body rows to 25 reps.

    Diet: B: 1 slice of meatloaf and a bowl of vegetable beef soup.

    S: 1/2 cup yogurt w/ strawberry preserves

    L: 2 thick slices of roast beast w/ stewed mushrooms and onions.

    D: Fasted

    Thursday

    Today is a run day. A "5 mile" course that I have been taking on this week and last. The temp will be in the mid to low 60's.... great running weather. No rain in the forcast today, so it should be an enjoyable run.

    Diet: B: Ate the last of that savory beef and vegetable soup/stew. After a few meals of a leftover I start to get tired of it, but that soup was delish.

    S: A couple of handfuls of walnuts, 6 small squares of dark chocolate.

    L: A large bowl of tomato and vegetable soup. Hmm.. I sense a recurrent soupy theme going on here....

    D: Fasting

    valmason01, yes I have 40 layer currently producing and 40 more that should be producing eggs by Feb/March time frame. I also do meat birds for my freezer, and a few to sell.
    Now I am really really jealous! Good for you! Keep up the good work. Another suggestion is to take the carcass and make bone broth out of it.

    Grok on!

    Hey valmason01, thanks for stopping by! I am sure that you will get your flock the size you want soon enough. I don't know whats FLa's rules are, some locations allow for a few hens in town... some do not. Do you have a line on a good supplier of chicks?

    Friday;.... another 24 hour day. Exhausting. Fortunately it was a rest day. Gorgeous day though. Had some errands to run, and I got the 2 newest hen houses set up for the new residents. They should move in on Saturday. Got the "Big House" ready to move on Saturday as well. The tractor that pulls it has been sitting for nearly a year in the same location, so the battery needs to be recharged. Have Bok Choy to put in the ground as well as some lettuce. Fence post holes to dig... farm chores never end.... but at least I get all the vitamin D I need! lol and shoulder workouts too!!!

    Diet: B: 3 scrambled eggs, 2 sausage patties (10pm thursday)

    S: 1/2 cup yogurt w/ strawberry preserves

    L: Vegetable soup (6 am friday)

    L2: BAS (11 am)

    D: Meatballs in marinara sauce with sauted yellow squash and zucchini (4:30 pm)

    Saturday, Today is a circuit day. I have been working in the garden all day long. Pulling weeds, planting, hoeing and my exercises haven't gotten done. I filled a 12' boxed garden bed with compost via 5 gallon buckets. Took 24 trips to get it done. I did 12 buckets full carried with the right hand, then 12 carried with the left hand... gotta have balance! It was a gorgeous sunny day. Temp in the low 70's or upper 60's. Wel, gotta go get my exercise togs on... circuit training awaits!

    Diet: B: 3 scrambled eggs with diced green and red peppers and mushrooms, coffee with heavy cream. no sweetner.

    L: since lunch was so late, I just had a small salad.

    D: Baked boneless pork chops, BAS, oven roasted pumpkin, acorn squash and delicata squash.

    Note to self..... exercise BEFORE you do farm work!!! Got it done, but it kicked my ass!
