It was Sunday for me. I volunteered at Church and one of the ladies brought in homemade muffins. Blueberry Cheesecake and Chocolate Chip. Who makes things like that. After a couple of those, it was easy to justify going out to dinner and eating bad and then going out to Sonic Drivethrough for dessert.

 

Oh well. Happens.

I had a runaway Saturday too, except I had no work excuse.  No biggie.

Yeah, not sure if it should actually worry me how unconcerned I am lol

I am super hungry today. I've already eaten breakfast and one of my two afternoon snacks and I can't wait for lunch! Hm, wonder what that's all about.

 

I'm really excited to have next Monday off. I hope it's another day of cooking and laundry and my dog.

You know, I'm the same way myself. I'll wake up super hungry. I find, though, that drinking about a liter of water first thing in the morning deals with that pretty well, so I guess it's not actually hunger in this case.

 

Maybe drink some water first thing in the morning?

Oh I do! It's the first thing I consume. Usually 16 (sometimes 24) ounces. And I'm almost never hungry in the morning with my regular protein shake and breakfast. 

 

There are a couple factors that may have played into the weird hunger this morning: more cardio than usual and TOM. Yay!

 

 

Speaking of cardio, my back is much better but as the day wears on I can feel the twinge still. I can't decide if I should do another treadmill/stretching session tomorrow morning or a deload dumbbell session...

I’m going here tomorrow night with the SO and my mom and her fiance! I’m so in for that Chilean Sea Bass entree… drool.

 

 

Eat ALL the raisins!

Well, great. Now I want chocolate covered raisins! 

 

But, good for you for resisting temptation. I'm not normally a raisin fan, but occasionally get a wild hair. And want them ALL! 

whoops! i didn't even think of those! soooo delicious. and raisins are a weird thing, I agree. I used to not like them at all but now I want them all the time. But if I get a bad tasting one, then I'm turned off from them for a while. Like pistachios. I haven't had those in maybe a year because the last time I had them I ate one with a worm in it. BLECH!

I had another raisin fiasco last night. So I asked the SO to hide them so that next time I want them I have to ask her for them and then I’ll be more apt to only eat a serving and only ask if I know it’ll fit in my macros.

 

But I foam rolled my calves last night! That’s something, right?

 

Workout 2/14/2014

5 min treadmill warmup

 

DB Shoulder Press: deload week

5 at 20# in each hand

5 at 20# 

5 at 20# 

 

Bentover Row: I started at 20# DBs but my right shoulder has been acting up and this was painful. I decided to mob around with some 5# DB doing lateral raises and swings because I have no idea what wrong or the best way to fix it. It was strange that it didn’t really act up during the shoulder presses. But every time I put my jacket on or reach into coat pockets that are set back, I definitely feel it.

5x20#, 10x15#

 

Incline pushups:

9, 9, 9

 

stretching in between.

So yeah, I don’t know what all these weird issues are about. First the back, which feels much better, and now the shoulder? Truthfully, the shoulder has been feeling weird for awhile now but I didn’t think too much of it (or didn’t want to). I was going to go get a gym membership this weekend but what’s the point if I’m not going to be able to do the lifts I want to do?

 

Also, I’m eating chocolate today and you can’t stop me. Happy valentine’s day!

We recently found dark chocolate covered dried cranberries. They are awesome.
