Thursday was a long day. Loooooooooong. Gray and rainy. And since Wednesday’s quasi food poisoning my stomach just hasn’t felt right. Like I purged out all my good gut bacteria, maybe?
Speaking of good gut bacteria, I taste tested my carrotkraut last night, it’s coming along! I could see all sorts of carbon dioxide bubbles when I stirred it around and it’s got a bit of a tang to it now. Still wickedly salty but slightly less so than the other day. I’ll leave it for a few more days, I want it pretty “sauer”. I bought some fermenting weights online last night and when they come in I’m going to delve into making a cabbage kraut.
After my workout last night I had the other half of the can of tuna and a couple bites of japanese sweet potato and then I took down the bone broth and cleaned that all up. Such a pain in the arse but I would not choose to live without BB, so…………..
For dinner last night all I wanted was steamed brocoli and scrambled eggs. Warm, creamy, comforting. So that’s exactly what I had. I tried a tip I’d seen online and added a touch of coconut milk to the eggs and then went at them with my immersion blender. Allegedly that is supposed to make them fluffier. Errr……not so much. But it did seem to make them super creamy which was nice.
What’s on tap for today and this weekend? I have a zillionty of scheduling to do at work (since I’m actually a scheduler, it makes sense, LOL). After work I’ll stop at the butcher and pick up a pork shoulder, home to make dinner and maybe a dog walk if it’s not too rainy and miserable.
Saturday morning we’re going to finalize Ray’s bike deal and then at 2 we are going to receive delivery of it at the house (it’s supposed to be pouring with rain so they will drop it off for us). That’s about all that’s on the books for the weekend, maybe some tea, some reading, a bubble bath, breakfast out on Sunday morning.
FOOD (Thursday, March 19)
M1: omelette w/ cauli rice
M2: hamburger w/ brocoli & roast potato, ketchup & bit of mayo
Post WO: 3 bites sweet potato, half a can of tuna w/ Frank’s Red Hot
M3: as above, brocoli, 4 eggs, a bite of sweet potato, a bit of mayo (too big, this dinner)
EXERCISE (Thursday, March 19)
20 minute row, 196 meters/min
3:30 rapid box steps (I think this might actually kill me)
3 x 10 15# goblet squats
1 x 8 60# deadlit
2 x ?? planks (forgot to time these…probably about 30 seconds each…which is shameful, I used to be able to plank for 2 minutes at a time easily and eventually was planking on only opposing arm and leg…..ah, starting over………..)
That’s it for me, really looking forward to this weekend and some down time. Thinking I might do a quick workout on Sunday, one I used to love. Row 2,000 meters, run 1 mile, row 2,000 meters. I’ll leave that alone until I see how I feel and how hard it’s raining out. 😉
