    Best: preparing my first beef tongue (I've eaten it before, but never made one myself). It may be my new favorite cut of beef.

    Worst: wondering why my floors won't stay clean. I want magic floors.

    Best: when a teenager who is constantly selling things for her school tried to get me to buy donuts, I said I didn't need donuts but would be happy to make a donation. I also left church yesterday to spend some time outside, which did a 180 for my mood. Usually the most enjoyable thing about Sundays is breakfast with friends and chatting, but yesterday two of my dining companions spent the entire time talking about 3-D tvs and arguing about some oafish blowhard who is a radio/tv personality. Bleargh.

    Worst: after two days successful avoidance, I finally succumbed to temptation and tried some of the homemade cookies in a tin at work. They were homemade. The good news is I didn't like the one I had enough to try another.

    Best: Half-way through Whole30 and this one (2nd) is a lot easier than the first.

    Worst: Can't keep veggies in the fridge -- household eats them really fast! Need bigger fridge.

    This was yesterday:

    Worst: seeing a pedestrian struck by a car and waiting around to give my statement when the police got to me. The pedestrian was not seriously injured.

    Best: finding that the stone wall I was sitting on while waiting for the cop to become available was perfect for doing L-sits on.

    Best: bit of sunlight, buttery curried eggs.
    Worst: STRESS. I HATE exam/essay season.

    Best moment: chowing down half a chicken and 800 grams of greens(yes, i was hungry) while my sister asked me "how the hell can you do that,and still lose weight?"
    Worst moment: setting up my pull-up bar in door opening, and failing miserable while attempting do one stinking pull-up. Not cool, not cool at all.
    Thank god i can still laugh at myself sometimes....

    I feel the pain on pullups.
    The way I got to doing one was:
    Step 1: Do negatives (jump up into "final" position and try and lower your body as slowly as possible; basically a reverse pullup), 3 sets of 3, sets spread out over a day or afternoon. Also do "downunder" pullups.
    Step 2: When you can do them, alternate occasional semi-pullups (pull yourself into a right-angle which you hold for a while) with your negative routine.
    Step 3: "Play" with the bar. Semi-pullups, negatives, dead hangs...etc
    Step 4: Start doing your "almost pullups" and holding the final position for as long as you can until you do a proper pullup.
    Step 5: Yay! Pullup!

    PS: Also, for the fastest progress, do your pullup workout day-on, day-off and avoid doing it the same day as weight-based activity for arms.

    Oooo, I just made beef tongue last week. I threw it in the crock pot overnight with an onion, bayleaf, S&P, and turkey broth. It was also my first time making it. Golly that skin could double as sandpaper ;P *ack.

    But i shredded it, and it turned out really juicy and moist. There was a surprising amount of fat in it too, I expected it to be super lean. Texture wise, it would be amazing for tacos. I just ended up eating mine with hot sauce!

    I brined mine in some pickling spices, vinegar, and water for eight days. Then into the pressure cooker for 55 minutes. Let cool, 'til I could easily pull off the skin. Voila - just like the old deli tongue I ate in my youth. I was also pleasantly surprised at the fattiness. Yum.

    The best: taking two glass clip-top jars into work and leaving them in the fridge for others to fantasise over. Then taking them to the canteen and devouring the contents. Salad envy can be a terrible thing.

    For some odd reason, storing clean, colourful food in glass jars looks so much more attractive than the ice cream tubs I was using previously.

    It helps that the contents are a salad consisting of scarlet chorizo, lush green leaves, magenta radishes and varied sweet peppers and, in the smaller jar, a mixture of gleaming blackberries, strawberries on the brink of collapsing under the weight of their own juice and fat cherries.
    Meat is Prized, Wheat is Despised.
