Gluten's not something I have issues with, so it never even occurred to me it would be put in fries, yuck! And yeah, although it doesn't make the fries healthy it's comforting to know that they're fried potato and nothing else.

It isn't that they put gluten in fries (well sometimes they do but not at five guys!) its just most places cook more than just fries in the deep fat friers.  So the gluten in the batter of the onion rings and fish is in the oil when they cook the potatoes.  That amount of cross contamination can be enough to get me somedays...   

 

Rest days are lovely and often needed!

Ah, I see, that makes much more sense. I know some places serve fries which are mashed and then reconstituted into shape, so I was thinking it might be something added in that process.

Great, this thread is starting to make me as hungry as a Tank thread.    Ok, well minus that I am not super keen on most fries, though I do love a good steak fry once in a while.   I am needing that burger I posted a bit ago!

 

Sounds like things continue to go well.   Good job on an intentional rest day.   Such an important part of training.  (Practice what you preach Puck!)   Hahah, remind me next time I am doing too much! ;)

Well I try!

 

I will remind you! The intentional rest day was good, the following unintentional ones not so much :apathy:

Week 3

Tuesday

  • Hayfever meds
  • Pre-Prepped breakfast
  • Updated bujo
  • No alcohol all day

And that was it! Got up late so no workout, and once I got home we went out, grabbed a McDonalds and went to see Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2. Was a great film and had a really nice evening, but this was definitely a day I could have squeezed more points out of. Score of 4.

 

Wednesday

  • Pre-prepped breakfast
  • Updated bujo
  • Walked to the shop for veg
  • Home cooked meal (I made enchiladas)
  • Made extra enchiladas for Thursday's lunch

Again woke up late and no workout. My downfall however was that, being a lovely sunny day, we decided to cut out of work for a quick pint at 3. That pint became 3, and after ducking back to the office it became a 4th, a later train home, a very late dinner an not much else!

 

I also had a couple of little bottles of beer at home, and between all of that I feel surprisingly rough today. There have been some good things today regardless, but that's for tomorrow's update.

 

Wednesday score was 5, putting me on 20 so far for the week. In order to hit week 2's numbers I now need to average 18 points a day. It's a tall order, but I can definitely give it a shot!

Haha, thank you!

Geat run this weekend!

 

I would say go for the "back 18" (that's awesome @Starpuck) but don't stress yourself out too much! One day at a time.

 

Thanks!

 

You're right, and I will try to remember that.

Thursday of Week 3

  • So I got up, not entirely on time, and actually went to the gym! So glad to be back. Between what felt like an awful hangover (although I'm starting to think I'm also getting ill as well) and all the strength I've lost from not going in it was a pretty rough session. Bench day to start my 8s phase of Juggernaught, and Rx was 5x8 at 47.5kg (~105#). Hit the weight, but only for 8, 8, 6, 5, 5. Still, got in and did the thing and I can feel the DOMS in my boobs today, so +5.
  • Stretched after workout
  • Pre-prepped breakfast
  • Pre-prepped lunch
  • Updated journal
  • Daily dare - 40 bicycle crunches - with EC [+2]
  • Tried a couple of Yoga with Adrienne's "yoga quickies" (because everyone loves a quickie).
  • Put away lots of washing
  • Home cooked meal - WW's signature parsnip risotto
  • Read and signed tenancy agreement (so I will continue to have somewhere to live)
  • TV off early
  • Set up journal for Friday
  • Clothes laid out
  • Gym kit laid out
  • Teeth brushed
  • Hayfever meds
  • Other meds
  • In bed around 10pm
  • Bonus: Full evening routine [+2]

A massive day for a total score of 27!

 

It's amazing how quickly one can stack these things up if one puts their mind to it! Today will hopefully be pretty solid, weekend will be trickier as I'm going to be crazy busy, but I'll make it work as best I can.

Week 3 Wrap-Up

Friday

Got up and went for a run - was supposed to be 3 miles plus some sprints but after 2.5 miles I stopped and walked the last 0.5 home. At this point I'm definitely getting ill which sucks :( .

 

After work I got in pull-ups, the daily dare and a couple more yoga quickies. Total score for the day: 15

 

Saturday

A very busy day, but very quiet points wise. It was Hopalong's birthday, and we went out for archery and axe throwing. Archery was great and something I'd definitely get into if I could afford another expensive hobby. We figured however that we could make a few throwing axes using Hopalong's forge, so that might be a thing in the near future.

 

The afternoon was spent barbequeing and drinking lots and lots of beer, and getting very sunburnt in the process. Total score of 6

 

Sunday

I had poisoned myself so badly on Saturday that I was actually sick Sunday morning. I've never in my life been sick the morning after (though I have on a night out) so that was pretty worrying. I did drink a stupid amount and possibly the cold and sunburn did not improve matters.

 

Things slowly improved as the day went on. We went to a Pink Floyd museum exhibition in London in the day which was really interesting - I ended up in there for 2.5 hours just taking it all in. Afterwards we went for a Sunday Roast in a local pub. By the time we got home it was about half 6 and I was just done, so an evening on the sofa with Critical Role it was. Total score: 5.

 

Week 3

Total score was 73, which is my worst so far. It's funny, it didn't feel that bad of a week, but when I look back I did very little Tuesday (missed workout, watched Guardians 2 after work), and Wednesday (missed workout, drinks after work), and then I wrote off the weekend when I could have gained points back with workouts and meal prep. Still I had fun, and I got back in the gym for a first time in a long time, so not all is lost.

 

Target for this week is an average score of 12 every day, so a total of 84 for the week.

Dude this is so epic. Sounds like a blast of a day! Although the fact you've never been so drunk to make yourself sick the next day makes me somewhat self conscious about the few times I've done it. (it's also the reason I cannot look Southern Comfort in the face without feeling nauseated). ;)

 

 Twelve a day is totally achievable so finish with a win!

Cheers man! It was pretty awesome.

 

I don't know if it's to do with how drunk I have been in the past, but more that if I'm going to be sick I'm sick on the night itself. When I was younger that used to be anything beyond 5 pints! It's a bit more now but this is still the first time I've been fine on the night and sick in the morning.

The Final Stretch Begins - Week 4 - Monday

  • Took hayfever meds
  • Updated bujo
  • Pull-ups: 5, 5, 5, 5, 4 - so damn close to hitting that 5x5 now!
  • Yoga quickies
  • Meditation (also my goal for the Rangerpool mini, which inspired me to finally give this another shot)
  • Affirmation in mirror with superhero pose - just trying something out here
  • Home-cooked meal - leek and potato pie
  • Washed and hung clothes
  • Laid out work clothes
  • Packed workout clothes
  • Hayfever meds
  • Brushed teeth
  • In bed on time
  • Not late all day
  • No alcohol all day

Total score: 15

 

So I'm definitely actually ill, and I might have also still been recovering from Saturday's antics, but I didn't feel great. Spent an extra hour or so in bed so no workout, but even in my weakened state I managed to make up a decent chunk of points.

 

Note to self: If you want to get to bed on time, tell WW that time and she might just make you stick to it.

The two times (2 times too many btw) this has happened to me I've been sick during the drinking too... Although usually it also accompanies drinking almost an entire bottle of spirits in one night and I really should have known better. Especially after the first time :P but I was young and stupid. I mostly stick to beer these days and it's really hard to drink enough beer in a short enough period of time to get that kind of sick.

 Agreeing with Jonfirestar... another example of how you just might be the coolest guy on that side of the pond ever.  "Tried archery and axe throwing... was fun... might forge some axes later!"

This is an excellent plan!   I concur!

 

Also- I find that drinking on top of sunburn is usually a bad mix.   Nine times out of ten, if you're sunburned, you've been out and about in the sun all day, likely also a bit dehydrated to start.   So it's like starting the beers on a negative curve.   Add in the cold, and yeah, friend, you were doomed.   Lots of clear fluids.   (Vodka does not count.)

Wow, I never knew I was so talented! :D 

 

If you haven't ended up in a pool of your own sick at the end of the night, are you even British tho.
