It was interesting to be sure - hoping i can recreate it for today's lunch. Bits & bobs in the fridge hooooo!

 

And I'm completely excited about themed snacks :) Off the top of my head, I'm thinking something playing with reds (since the book takes place on the red planet); maybe texture (spaaaaaace and all), and maybe something green? (martians)

 

I don't want to go overboard (I totally do, but probably shouldn't); and there are at least 2 vegetarians in the group. 

 

So far: Chili dusted melon skewers (bamboo skewers sticking into something); prosciutto-wrapped something (asparagus, green beans) - served standing up in a something that's not a glass jar. I'll be working with someone else (one of the vegetarians), so maybe we can do something like 2 veg apps + 2 meat apps?

Alllll the hillllls. 

Melon skewers sound lovely. Mmm prosciutto-wrapped asparagus. Those two things remind me of Japanese yakitori skewers: bacon-wrapped boiled quail egg, bacon wrapped mushrooms, or bacon wrapped asparagus. Annnnnd now I'm craving bacon.

Week 3: Weekend Update

 

Workouts

 

Friday: I completely forgot my pull-up training workout, and we picked up our race packets. 

 

Saturday: Slept in, some walking around around Times Square, saw a play off Broadway about ex-mobsters and cannibalism

 

Sunday: North Face Endurance Challenge 5k trail run up Bear Mountain, NY. It was bananas and I hated it, but I'll probably do it again next year since now I have a benchmark. 

 

Race report: My hammies, quads and left hip flexor all seized up about 2 minutes into the race - which was fantastic *sarcasm* - I basically hiked up the hills, ran where I could on the flatter parts, jammed my ankle minorly about 7 times on rocks, and went as quickly as I could on the few downhills there were. I swear, this race was uphill both ways. I woke up waaaaaaayyyy too early (4:45 for a 9:15 start time), we got there about an hour before we needed to be there for my DH's race (half marathon) (left early to avoid trouble presented by the 5 Borough Bike Race), and I stood around in the cold for over an hour waiting for my race to start. WHINE. The race itself was probably good - I was slow as shit, in pain on the uphills, and was super careful to not fall or twist anything because I am a very klutzy human. The trails were really well marked, the proctors were great, and the whole thing was really professionally run. 

 

Weekly Grade: Even though I totally forgot to do my extra workout, I'm still going A here because that race was ridiculous. 

 

 

Metrics

 

Friday

 

Breakfast: Smoothie with hemp protein powder + coffee with almond milk

Lunch: Rosemary chicken salad with pecans, rhubarb & dijon

Snack: 1/4 cup roasted salted nuts

Dinner: Out - Buttermilk biscuit with a turkey leg + mashed potatoes and a strawberry lemonade cocktail

Sleep: 8h 8m / 0m awake / 4h 19m light / 3h 49m restful

 

Saturday

 

Breakfast: Grande Coconut Caffe Misto + "brunch" out at a place called Cannibal - chili-dusted pork rinds with spicy mayo appetizer + Thai sausage with peanut book choy 

Lunch: Skipped

Dinner: My DH's pre-race concoction - ground beef and rice with seasonings. Heavy on beef/light on rice for me

 

Calories: 817 of 1,500

But ... I was slam ass full all day.

Carbs: 89 of 100g

Fat: 101 of 100g

Protein: 94 of 70g

 

I'm not going to be too hard on myself for today's calorie overage. I needed it. 

 

Activity: 5.7 miles / 2097 calories / 14364 steps

Sleep: 5h 1m / 0m awake / 1h 47m light / 3h 14m restful

 

Weekly Grade: B. I'm still not where I want to be weight-wise (where I was pre-vacation), and I'm still eating too many calories. Plus, this weekend I was slam-ass full after every meal. I don't need to do that. 

 

Other Shit

 

I knitted like 3 stitches this weekend, and did little else. I went out to lunch with a friend I hadn't seen in a year or so, so that was good. Talked to some strangers while waiting for my race to start, and to some of my DH's run club people afterward. I also processed a few pictures on Friday. 

 

Weekly Grade: A. At least I got some shit accomplished.

I feel like yesterday was a back on track day :) 

 

Today, I've got to decide on what I want to do for my workout - today is 30 minutes of cardio or HIIT day; buuuut ... my calves are still really tight and my left hip is still crappy, so I don't know what exactly I need to do today -- maybe wuss out and take a walk with the dog? I feel like that's taking the easy way out and that I really need to amp my shit up, but maybe I just need to take a chill pill this week and *not* attempt to injure myself. 

 

DECISIONS. 

 

And then there's the 99999999 other fitness skills I want to work on .....

But I'm so good at it! 

 

And you're right - a w-a-l-k plus some hip flexor and calf specific stretching (I should really bust out the foam roller) should do me well today. It's ridiculously beautiful out today and I should revel in the warm but not swampy/smells like garbage and pee time of year. And I'm sure the fluffy guy will appreciate it (pre inevitable panic time).

Week 4 Day 3

 

Workout

 

Did my pull-up work for the day:

 

Strap-assisted pull-ups: 4x8/side

Max effort pull-ups: 3/side and I got to 45 degrees fairly consistently from a tiptoes jump

Lat pull downs (carried over from monday): 66 lbs. 8 reps x 3

 

Then I did 20 minutes of hills type cardio on the elliptical. 

 

I had intended upon doing a 10 minute abs video as well, but the desire to make dinner before I had to meet up with someone whose dog I'll be walking Thursday was overwhelming and I couldn't concentrate. 

 

Metrics

 

Breakfast: DH's green smoothie with hemp protein + coffee with almond milk

Lunch: Pulled pork with pineapple rhubarb salsa & coleslaw mix

Snack: 9 chicharrones (1 serving)

Dinner: Chicken thighs & roasted veggies (potato, zucchini, asparagus, broccolini) with lemon goat cheese sauce

Snack: 1 cup red seedless grapes

 

Calories: 979 out of 1500

Carbs: 86 out of 100g

You're totally making me want to jump on the pull up train again!

Your meals sound particularly epic lately -looking forward to the pork crepes recipe! Last night's dinner sounds so excellent as well.

I *feel* like they've been really great lately (especially lunch). I 100% have rhubarb to thank for that - I think it's my new favorite super seasonal thing. 

 

And now I'll be crushed until next Spring when I can get it again. 

 

Regardless, it's good to be off the 'everything must be roasted and that's it' train - at least for awhile. Roasting is crazy convenient, but it doesn't really lend itself to too much innovation (unless, of course, you slap on a goat cheese lemon cream sauce, that is).

Week 4 Day 4

 

Workout

 

Yoga day. Today was a particularly good class fitness-wise, though my right side balance was teh suck. 

 

Metrics

 

Breakfast: Green smoothie with hemp protein + coffee with almond milk

Lunch: A repeat of yesterday - coleslaw mix, pulled pork & pineapple rhubarb salsa

Snack: Cherry tomatoes

Dinner: Bunless aged beef burger with a crazy good dijon mustard/some sort of fancy-ass vegan jam topper & Alexa sweet potato fries

 

Calories: 973 out of 1500 - no wonder the 'eggs, bacon & toast' song from Parks & Rec had me craving eggs & bacon at 10pm!

Carbs: 106 of 100g - whoops - sorry, not sorry

Fat: 35g of 100g

Protein: 55g of 70g - I don't know what's going on lately, but I'm off my protein game. I tried, dammit. 

 

Activity: 0.6 miles / 1546 calories / 1710 steps

Sleep: 8h 24m / 0m awake / 5h 8m light / 3h 16m restful

 

Other Shit

 

Knitted a very little bit; signed up for salsa night in my building to get a little extra workout (+ wine & tapas) in. 

 

Also (today) signed up for a CSA -- last year's CSA looks like its defunct, so I'm trying another one. This year I'm doing a half share (every other week) of veggies & am going to order some of the meats this CSA delivers as well. I'm super excited about the share boxes (5-6 lbs. assorted meat) & the starter offal boxes - one month will be fats, one month will be offal with recipes, one month will be something else, and one month is fat to render. Yay, nerd food!

Week 4 Weekend Update 

 

Workout

 

Friday: I went to the beginner salsa lesson in my building. And it was hard. I suck at Salsa. 

 

Saturday: Went to the big mall to see the Avengers on the huge IMAX and walked around. Impulse bought Joker (hubby) and Harley Quinn (me) Converse - we may wear them for next year's vow renewal if we can keep them nice. If not, we fully know we're ridiculous and will probably only wear them in tandem. 

 

Sunday: Walked the neighborhood, discovered a new grocery shop, over the Manhattan Bridge, and down through Chinatown to get to our Escape The Room activity. Escape the Room was awesome - and we escaped with 15 minutes to spare. We then wandered Chinatown a bit looking for snacks. 

 

Week 4: I got my workouts in + a bonus day. Score! A. 

 

 

Metrics

 

Friday

Breakfast: DH's green smoothie with hemp protein + coffee with almond milk

Lunch: Whipped goat cheese chicken salad with grapes and thyme and pecans

Snack: 9 chicharrones

Dinner: Indian delivery - lamb kebab, Indian fried eggplant, shrimp tikka and 1/3 of a paratha

 

Calories: 1412 of 1500

Carbs: 68 of 100g

Fat: 85 of 100g

Protein: 101 of 70g

 

Activity: 1.4 miles / 1626 calories / 4356 steps

Sleep: 8h 46m / 0m awake / 3h 56m light / 4h 50m restful

 

Saturday

Breakfast: Starbucks protein bistro box + 7-11 coffee because my Starbucks sucks and was out of coconut milk

Lunch: Joe's Crab Shack - Classic steam pot with 2 bites of sides

Dinner: Snacks from Target - Daniele On-the-Go box: Almonds, provolone cheese, hard boiled egg, genoa salami

Snack: 1/4 cup Speculoos Cookie Butter Dairy-Free Ice Cream from Steve's. It was amazing and I'm glad I can't handle much sugar at all any more. 

 

Calories: 1560 of 1500

Carbs: 60 of 100g

Fat: 93 of 100g

Protein: 116 of 70g

Sunday

Dinner: Delivery Mexican/Chinese: 1 order shrimp with vegetables (no rice) + 1 steak & guacamole taco + 1 chili taco

Snack: None. I had mapped out ice cream to have, and would have been fine on everything but calories, but decided not to have any after all because I wasn't starving

 

Calories: 1443 of 1500

Carbs: 84 of 100g

Fat: 69 of 100g

Protein: 73 of 100g

 

Activity: 3.8 miles / 1841 calories / 10852 steps

Sleep: 8h 2m / 0m awake / 5h 14m light / 2h 48m restful

 

Week 4: This week I did pretty damn good, if I do say so myself. I even noticed this morning (Monday), that my weight is back down to 116. Whoo. A.

 

Other Shit

 

Friday I went out of my comfort zone in Salsa class and not only mingled, but danced in front of other people - and danced with strangers - and was forced to make eye contact with a super intense guy that knew what he was doing and had damp hands. And I had to dance with a giant. And one of the teachers was disappointed in how badly the class was doing. I also then hung out with friends from the building. 

 

Saturday was in my zone.

 

Sunday we had the Escape The Room - in which we had to interact with a large group of strangers and it took almost everything I had to not strangle the one that had a: made himself into a gay asian stereotype, b: cracked the same joke about wanting to move into the escape the room room because he wanted an apartment in manhattan no less than every 2 minutes (we were there for an hour and possibly a half), and c: also kept saying how he wasn't there to be anything but pretty and couldn't help with the puzzles. Needless to say, I wanted to throat punch him even before the rest of his party (who were all very late - r-u-d-e) arrived. 

 

Week 4: This week, I got out of my comfort zone, knitted and cleaned. A.

I don't, but I still have the FitBit app because of my scale (the Aria). I am currently using the Misfit Flash and am loving it - even more than the FitBit. And not only because I got it free from my health insurance provider -- this sucker is comfortable and easier to sleep in. The FitBit app tracks my steps providing I have my phone on me (which I pretty much always do), and it's (so far) my favorite run tracker.
