Drank too much whisky this weekend... hahaha.

 

Had a very busy weekend, actually. Friday was decompress day. Saturday I moved a fuck ton of furniture. Some of our really good friends are moving from MA to PA (sad) and decided to downsize, so they offered us pretty much all of the furniture in their house.... stuff we needed. So we inherited a new couch, two end tables, a coffee table, a new dining room table and chairs, an oak hutch, a large amish-made wood hutch (holy fuck was that heavy), a new dresser, filing cabinet and a few other things. So Saturday was spent loading all of that onto a truck, plus a bunch of their son's stuff (my best friend), then unloading all of it at his storage space and our apartment. The place looks great, but loading and unloading everything was a hell of a workout. The Amish-made hutch probably weighed close to 300 pounds. Still need to fine tune the layout in our place but having new furniture is really nice...

 

Yesterday was spent hanging out with said friends one more time before they leave, so lots of good food, wine, whisky and talking.

 

Last week went... okay. Battled with some depression but got a lot done. Only missed meditating on Friday. Haven't yet today but I'm going to get on that. My cheat day spilled across the weekend due to the nature of our plans and just having too much non-paleo food left over, but it's all gone now, so back on track!

300 lb hutch? Jesus.

 

*hands over some chicken loaf and carrots*

 

Too bad I'm not around to organize.  I remember you telling me that you had no idea what to do with the stuff you were going to eventually get- back when we hung out.  Having everything fit together is kind of my thing.

Happens to the best of us, a splurge is good for the soul once in a while in my opinion.

 

Well done moving all that furniture I know what that's like, it's easy to hurt yourself in these situations.

Splurge with friends is not a bad splurge in the scope of things.  Amish furniture, built for the ages.

Yeah I thought I pulled the muscle in my right forearm moving the hutch but woke up not even sore... it was glorious. Yay for knowing how to lift.

Doing my weekly update now since I'll be busy this weekend. Also realized I didn't do an EoW update for week 1, so I'll do that first.

 

Week 1: Mostly good. Missed 1 workout, 1 day of yoga and meditation. Eating was on track. Drank a little too much over the weekend but moving into things slowly.

 

Week 2: Skipped working out, meditating or yoga on Monday. Got back into things on Tuesday, had a few drinks on Wednesday but also went to the gym. Went for a 6 mile+ hike yesterday and am skipping the gym today because my legs are falling off. Tomorrow is technically my cheat day but because I had a few drinks on Wednesday I'm going to avoid drinking over the weekend again. Going hiking on Sunday to make up for no gym today, but I still got a lot of working out in this week so it's all good.

 

Looking for a few suggestions on food, starting to get bored. Made a meatloaf last night. Reconsidering low carb diet and adding a few things back in. Still no added sugars, but oatmeal and a few other things. We'll see. I have enough trouble hitting my protein goals already... don't want to replace it with non-sugar carbs. Need to eat more eggs, they're my superfood... Fiancee wants to do a juice cleanse soon, so we'll see.

 

For my mini I've been focused mostly on Getting my Shit back together anyway, so it reinforced the "do shit, don't put it off" portion of my challenge, been doing good with that.

 

Hopefully good news next week in relation to employment issues... stay tuned.

These two things are the best thing about your post buddy! Well done.

 

Hope the employment issue works out the way you want.

I made these salmon cakes recently.  They were awesome right out of the oven, but then the next day I put one on a bed of spinach with a home made Dijon vinaigrette and they were equally awesome cold.  I am thinking about making them again next week.

 

Positive thoughts on the employment news!

Nice. I use the "It Starts With Food" Salmon cake recipe, I'll have to try them with a vinaigrette, cold. Sounds delicious.

I do something very similar, though I use a hot & spicy grain mustard to kick start the salad. And if I'm feeling brave (or pissed off at co-workers) I add a single anchovies to it.

Few people realize that anchovies are the base of caesar dressing, and I love caesar salad... so that I would probably like.

Can't go wrong with a spicy mustard.  A little zing always helps!
