6 days have past since my last post. I’ve pretty much fallen of the wagon since then. I’ve only been to workout once this week. I was lazy this morning and instead of waking up earlier and going to workout I woke up late and went fishing. Dont get me wrong you need to get out and enjoy your fitness. This morning is was paddling a canoe while a good friend and i went fishing. Twice in that six day period I ate medium pizzas for meals. It’s been a rough six days as far as my fitness and nutrition goes.
Motivation, if you see mine please send it back home. The last 2 or 3 days I just can’t get any kind of excitment about going to the gym. I find my self making excuses like I went yesterday or I’ll go tomorrow but rarely do if find myself going hell ya it’s gym time.
Well here’s to tomorrow and getting back on the wagon. I’m going to work on a list of why I wanted to go to workout so that next time I start making excuses to myself I can look at a reminder of why I started in the first place.
Readers what do y’all do to stay motivated on you path to accomplishing goals?
If you thought this train was derailed yesterday, ha hold on.
Working my part time shift. After checking the trucks had time for a quick gravy biscuit hash brown combo before hose testing.
After testing hose all the way to lunch time it was a quick run to Milo’s for a cheeseburger. I didn’t go with the MEGA MEAL COMBO, which is a double cheese burger, Mega fry, 32oz sweet tea, and an apple pie. I had to start trying to get back right side up eventually.
Dinner was a late night run to Subway. 6inch turkey italian melt on white. I also had a couple white chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies.
Breakfast was at 6am, the 20th was my main shift so I got up and was ready to workout at 515. Breakfast consisted of leftover “Never ending pasta bowl”. There wasn’t much left and I figure if I’m going to eat those starchy carbs might as well do it first thing in the morning.
Lunch was around 12. We are still in the process of class at work so being away from the station and stuck on the truck we ending up at the taco bus. It’s a local food truck for tacos if you were curious about what a taco bus is. They serve smallish hand made tacos on handmade corn tortillas. I had 5 pork. Might have been a couple to many oh well.
Dinner was about 6pm. Here is where I have very little self control, pizza. If I’m at work and all the guys are like, “hey y’all want to order pizza,” I better have brought some extremely good left overs and even then I might still end up with pizza. I went with a thin crust medium pepperoni. If you’re thinking wow he didn’t really stick to the plan today, I ate the whole pizza.
Oh well, it’s in the past now just gotta tighten up and get back at it. Thanks for reading like and comment. Let me know what’s up.
I keep finding myself skipping this either due to lack of hunger or lack of time.
It was early post workout 930ish. I stopped by Publix and got sushi. It was brown rice with smoked salmon, cream cheese, cucumber, and was fantastic.
The wife had picked up the stuff for some parmesan crusted chicken, we had a side of bacon brussel sprouts. I have recently found brussel sprouts it’s amazing that I have been missing out on these for 29 years.
Last Thursday was an off day, even though I almost got held at work. I ended up squeezing in a mid-day workout. Which was nice because I knew that I wasn’t going to make it Friday. Anyway back on point.
We had purchased concert tickets to see Brandy Clark, Sturgill Simpson, and Jason Isbell. I hadn’t listened to much Brandy Clark but she was pretty good. On the other hand I have been listening to a lot of Sturgill since we bought the tickets and he has quickly made it to my list of favorites. He has an old school country sound that I enjoy and think needs to bump some of the Bro Country of the radio.
Now the main act, Jason Isbell. He is always fantastic. I think this was the second time we have gone to see him and I hope to see him many more times in the future. He is a local artist who has been around for a few years but I feel he is really coming into his own.
No date night would be complete without pre-show dinner. We found the Tin Top Bar and Grill. It was in walking distance of the venue so we thought it would workout perfect to eat there. To start off I had a Miller Light on draft. For the main course had the Chicken Rockefeller. Which is two boneless breasts broiled with fresh spinach and topped with parmesan. I had gouda grits and fried green tomatoes as a side. Seeing how it was date night I splurged and got dessert, buttermilk cheese pie.
Overall it was a great night. Below are some pictures I hope you enjoy. Feel free to comment.
Well be slept in as late as possible and went to church so breakfast was skipped.
Olive Garden, I had the never ending pasta bowl. I had Cavatappi with 5 cheese Marinara and alfredo. I ate the first full bowl with chicken on top and the second bowl I just got the pasta. I took the left overs home and they will be Tuesday’s post workout breakfast.
I ate late due to lack of hunger and just had a bowl of special K apple cinnamon.
Sometimes when I have a lot going I seem to stop being able to tell time. I feel like I start hyper- focusing on my list of items I have to get done. As I work my way through the list nothing seems to take as much time as anticipated. So then I look at my watch I’ll be thinking its an hour later than it actually is. All the while wondering how some much of my day is gone. Maybe is has something to do with working 24 hour shift, anyway today at lunch was no different. I was a little more than an hour early for today’s workout session. So I stopped in at the Cracker Barrel. I thought I would have more options that might include better options for the mid section that I’d like to shrink.
I had spicy grilled catfish, turnip greens, hash brown casserole (hey I was headed to the gym had to fuel up), and some corn bread. Water to drink.
Who knows what dinner will hold, the wife and I are going to a concert and we plan to eat out. I’ll update tomorrow and try to post some pictures of the concert if I can get any good ones.
