    I really couldn't think of a good title for this; so this is what you get Work outs Running minimum of 22 mpw and try to bring that up to mid 20's by the end of this challenge; plan is 4+ miles a day 4 days a week and a weekend long run; hopefully the cold and ice is gone so I can start running outside by the river again; trying to run over an hour on the treadmill is torture, I can't mentally bring myself to do it. Gorilla work out; pulls ups, inverted rows, dips, push ups, squats, 2-3 times a week. 2 times during the week and try to fit one in during the weekend Jump rope when outside with the kids; normal jump 10 times, both sides one legged jump 10 times, alternate legs 10 times; for a total of 40, building up to 5 times with a minute break in between Cooking; oatmeal every morning, salads for lunch; both are extremely easy to modify, add in fresh fruit to both and use left over protein for the salads I'm in the process of getting rid of processed food from the house; which means a lot of home cooking in a house with an extremely picky eater and two kids. I made a salad and put chicken on top of it, the reaction I got was "I don't eat this, you eat this" so I told her to put the chicken to the side; have made it a couple of times since. have to cross post an Italian pulled chicken recipe with Recipes; but for now I will share my pork chop recipe (can be used for steak) To cook a pork chop; (indoors) preheat oven to 375 Season pork chop with Onion powder, Garlic powder, Salt, and Pepper (super simple) let that set as you preheat a frying pan or indoor grill to medium heat (my stove goes to 8 and I cook around the 4-5 mark) when the pan is heated add a splash of olive oil so the pork doesn't stick to the pan, place pork chop on pan for appx 2-3 minutes flip when nice and golden brown; if you have a pan that can go from stove to oven place the pan in the oven for 6 minutes until the internal temp is 140-145 f (if you don't have a pan like that a glass dish works well)

    not quite a smite but definitely made me sad; our secretary accepted another job (wooohooo go her!) however she's the only other smart geek on the floor; we can talk book, comics, movies, music..... so today we had to mail out a letter to a guy with the last name Skiff who lives on Lake Street; my boss heard me snicker and asked "What" so I told him and just got a blank stare back; I told the Secretary who snickered at it. Not that's it's supper funny it's just a funny coincidence that makes life a little more tolerable, and I'm sad that I'm going to feel isolated again after she leaves; believe me I've tried to fit in, but when you're into geek pop culture (Orville, Z Nation, Umbrella Academy) and the rest of the office is into the Bachelor and all that other insipid crap; it feels like high school all over again; where you're doing nothing wrong, just exploring what makes you happy which puts you at odds with the rest of the people "Ohhh I have to watch this show, even though I don't like it because I'll have other people to talk to about it"

    American food is weird, they are described as being buttery and flaky and really they are almost like bread.

    I accidentally made something, was making my homemade pasta sauce and had a half of chicken left over, so I pulled the chicken (leaving nothing but bones and fat) added it to my sauce just to warm it up and where as I thought I was making pasta sauce with chicken I made an Italian pulled chicken; which to toot my own horn was awesome on the pasta and also on a roll the next day 32 oz of crushed/diced tomatoes 1 med/lrg sweet onion 3 peppers (mine were a little on the small side so if they are bigger cut in them in half) red, orange, yellow, or whatever you want 3 cloves of garlic 1 cup of chicken stock olive oil 1/4 tsp of salt 1/2 tsp of pepper 1 tbsp oregano (if you can use leaves, it does make a difference ) 1 tbsp basil (see above) prep the onions ,peppers, and garlic by dicing them into your preference of size; the smaller they are the more likely they are to disintegrate into the sauce itself(aka my kids don't know there is onions in the sauce) so if you like onions and peppers I would leave them a little on the bigger side chop the basil and oregano pre-heat a pot over medium heat add a tablespoon or so of olive oil to the bottom of your pot, add in the diced onions and diced peppers stir them until they onions are translucent and the peppers are getting soft, add in the diced garlic, stir until the onions start to turn golden, add in the tomatoes, oregano, basil, salt, pepper, stir until blended, add in the chicken stock, stir until evenly mixed, bring the sauce to a low boil and cover and turn down to simmer and let it simmer for a half hour stirring it every few minutes; over all with the prep and cooking the onions, peppers, garlic it takes about 45 minutes So to make the pulled chicken just add the chicken to the sauce and let the chicken heat up while the sauce simmers

    Yes the base of it's bechamel, normally mixed with pork or chicken gravy and served over biscuits (rolls) it's more of a southern thing

    I was using British English, in American terms it's french fries The Upstate NY version of poutine is the garbage plate; which is french fries, chili with beans and cheese sauce

    Poutine is chips covered in brown gravy and cheese curds; which is awesome when you are drunk

    What's up party people; looks like a good time to set up a new challenge for myself; I have been upping my weekly mileage now to start adding weekend long runs back into the mix now that winter is over and I can actually use the bike path for more than just a skating path

    I put grapes on my salad, they all fell to the bottom, now I'm eating grapes with vinaigrette which I can actually say I'm enjoying
