weighed myself this morning since I was feeling good last night! 161.2, which is actually less than I was the week before HP World since I binged a bit that weekend of savage games and book club meeting. so that’s good news! my 7-day rolling average is now at 162.1 though so I probably won’t be able to log a loss tomorrow. I did decide not to go to a party tonight where the host alwayyyyys brings out snacks. It’s far away anyway and I’d rather catch up on sleep, get to the gym tomorrow morning, and hit up my fav grocery store. boy, how times have changed.

I have thoughts like this. Like who am I? How did this happen? When did I become this person? Hahaha. It was a thundering lightning rainstorm downpour last night but I was all, gotta get my gains and went to the gym anyway.

W2D1 – Sunday

 

Mother’s day breakfast since I missed mom’s day last weekend. Had a roasted veggie omelet with goat cheese, pumpernickel toast, and baked beans. noms. walked around an outdoor mall a bit afterward to bide time before meeting up with my dad and sister for Civil War! I enjoyed it. and popcorn. I enjoyed that too.

 

went home and did a bunch of batch cooking and finally unpacking from FL. cooked up two batches of nomnom’s new shredded chicken recipe for the pressure cooker and a breakfast casserole with fresh ground pork. the SO made dinner while I got in some yoga but it was only 20 mins so I’m counting it as a 0.5 point.

 

*yoga 0.5/4

*lunch or dinner 2/4

 

*cals 1,751/12,200

CHO/FAT/PRO = 165/83/86

all day yesterday and now today i've had this weird pain around the back of my neck as well as what feels like a pressure type headache. it doesn't feel like a crick in my neck type thing that i've experienced before. can't think of anything weird that i did though. if it was the rucking i assume it would've hurt on sunday, not monday.

Your Monday sounds like my Monday. Paperwork snafu at work. Then the commuter buses were all on detour and I accidentally picked one that was going to loop all the way around before going to my car (an extra 20+ min ride). 

 

Hopefully Tuesday treats you better! You got in a solid workout yesterday, so today has to be awesome, right?

Do you hold the lunges for a minute each or AMRAP them?

 

I'm a little terrified by my pressure cooker, I've had if for three or four years now, but haven't used it more than twice.  After typing that out it made me realize that I should probably get rid of it. 

 

Anywho, keep up the good work!

They're lunge holds

And no you shouldn't get rid of it! Use it! If You haven't exploded anything in your years on this earth so far, I'd say you have enough sense about you to use a pressure cooker properly

I like all the flavors from the spice packet but I don't like that the spices are still in whole seed form. The one from the local grocery always has a million mustard seeds in it that are annoying to eat. Twice I have fallen prey to the wrath of the seeds. It's like an onslaught of spice bombs in your mouth. Next time I'll just look up what they are and use ground spices.

I love corned beef in the slow cooker, with a whole onion and just some black pepper seeds and a bay leaf. If I'm feeling extra lazy I will put the jacket potatoes and carrots in too after a couple of hours, stemmed greens and dinner is done!

 

my MIL has a pressure cooker, I've never cooked with one. Although everyone over here is crazy about thermomix.

Seriously! My friend actually was just doing this cleanse thing and she put whole coriander in her water with some other stuff and then would munch on the little coriander balls! Blech.

That sounds exactly like what I want to do next time! I did the onion and some celery. Next time I'll just season myself.

WHAT is a thermomix?!!

W2D5 – Thursday

 

another mini-ruck in the morning with only 10#. I was worried that my neck pain earlier this week was associated with the ruck on Saturday last weekend so I didn’t up the weight like I had planned. 40 mins at 5:15AM and we saw a deer along the trail! great way to start the day.

 

throughout work day, all for 1min:

4 planks

chair pose

wall sit

boat pose

side planks @ 45s each

lunges @ 45s each

 

went home and did mobility and then a 22 minute yoga sesh to bring my half point up to 1!

 

cooked up some turkey broccoli stir fry and some bscb for lunch today.

 

*lifting 3/5

*cardio 2/3

*mobility 24/30

*yoga 1/4

 

*cals 1,719 (8,296/12,200)

CHO/FAT/PRO = 141/58/170

 

for some reason my egg casserole this morning was sourrr. blech. that’s never happened before. I’m sure one of the ingredients we used (can cashew milk go sour?) was on its way out. so I had my avocado for breakfast and will have to figure out something more to eat later.
