Thursday 10-15-15 Date Night

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.

Food Log 10-18-15


Well be slept in as late as possible and went to church so breakfast was skipped.

Lunch –

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.

Weekend cheat time 9/26 – 9/27

Well I made it another week without drinking the first soft drink. I’m pretty sure the caffeine headaches are gone. I made it all the way from Monday to Friday without eating a burger on a bun, or a sandwich on white bread. I haven’t stepped on a scale to see if there has been an improvement there but I have started feeling better after eating cleaner for two weeks.

So football Saturday rolled around and I had to be at work all day so I lucked out that I cheat on the weekends. We started out with breakfast; I stayed good by eating a couple of scrambled eggs, with pepper roast on top. All this was made into a breakfast burrito. Lunch was late and we fried chicken fingers and covered them with buffalo sauce. That was paired with Rotel cheese dip that was snacked on the rest of the day. I kept my water consumption high. This was probably better in the long run that the whole pizza I ate last week end.

Sunday I spent at home with the wife. We skipped breakfast went to church and then had Panera for lunch. I ordered the grilled chicken caesar salad with a side of tomato soup and an apple instead of bread. For dinner we made a little pasta. It consisted of lasagna noodles rolled up with spinach and ricotta cheese inside. Tomato sauce was then put on top and bottom. I ate four, that was probably too many but I was still on cheat day.

Now it’s Monday and I’m back on track. Thanks for reading, let me know what else you would like to see me write about.
