Saturdays...

Ahhh Saturday mornings. A time for relaxation. A time for laziness. A time to just, take your time. That about sums up my day yesterday. Since I usually take the weekends off from the gym, I didn't work out, or really go anywhere. The only time I even left the house was when I went out to get dinner, which was KFC/Taco Bell. I also picked up a 6 pack of my favorite beer. 

If you are an IPA fan, I highly recommend trying this beer, as well as their regular IPA and Maximus. I realize that this is not an IPA, but a lot of Red Ales are very hoppy, so its pretty damn close. This beer is the perfect combination of hops, and malt, and simply an insane amount of flavor. GET IT. 

Despite being excited about getting my favorite beer, I completely forgot to drink any of it... I did have some Jack though, so at least the night wasn't alcohol free. 

I did a terrible job with entering everything into MyFitnesspal yesterday, but I did end a little bit under my 4,000 cal goal. This was the chicken fried rice that I made the day before, which I had as a little late night snack. 

Being Sunday, today is a day off from the gym as well, thankfully... I have way too much crap to do today, that I am not looking forward to at alllll. 

Tonight should be sweet, though. It is Kourtney's birthday, and fathers day, obviously. And since her sister and brother in law are visiting us, we actually have babysitters and are going out to dinner. Having three kids makes going out an extremely rare occasion, so I am pretty pumped. 

We are going to a local brewery (I think it is actually a chain) called Rock Bottom Brewery. It looks pretty good, soooo we will see. I am pretty sure that I will be getting a burger and then trying a dessert. They have a freaking Mason Jar Bourbon Pecan Pie and a Key Lime Pie, which both sound amazing. How to choose... 

But that's really it for today. And as always,

When Squarespace Hates You

There is nothing like sitting down to your computer, ideas swirling all around. Slowly raising a warm cup of coffee to your eager lips, taking a sip of that godly nectar, and then going to your website to start the days blog post. Its so awesome. Especially when your website admin login won't work because there is something wrong with squarespace.com, and you just keep getting error messages. All. Day. 

Yesterdays blog post was not skipped intentionally. Every-time me or my wife tried to log into our respective pages, it was error message city. Thankfully squarespace seams to have their shit together again today, so here we are. 

To go nicely with the website issue, yesterdays workout was pretty shitty as well. Strength was meh, motivation was just not there, and I ended up leaving feeling worse than I did when I got there. But hey, I still got it in. Good or bad, I got something in. And even though I left feeling shitty about it, I still got it innnn. 

I don't think that I will be going to the gym today, mostly because I generally don't go on the weekends, even if I miss a workout during the week. That's not to say I never do, but it is pretty rare. 

I am also having some strange, freaking horrible pain in my right pec. It literally just started when I sat down to write this, and random phantom stabbings that I am apparently receiving are making this already late blog take twice as long.

I don't feel like its something that I should be too concerned with, mostly because its not pain near the surgery site. But my entire right pec was re-contoured, so I guess the entire right pec was technically the surgery site. 

Either way, my early assessment is that it is simply from cartilage getting broken up from my last chest day. Sort of clearing out growth in places that haven't been worked too hard, if you will. Or possibly some minor tearing. Either way, no cause for alarm, yet.

Yesterday was day 13 of my Lucky Charms challenge, so if you missed it check it our right HERE!

Yesterdays MyFitnesspal is a little bit jacked up, but I will just tell you what else I had. On top of what is listed I also had an IPA (the name escapes me), some Jameson, some more chicken breast, two Chocolate Twinkies, and some more milk. I ended right around 4,000 cals. 

I thought of a new idea for a YouTube project yesterday, so be sure to go check it out and let me know what you think. I am bouncing around a couple of ideas, so your feedback on this one would be awesome. HERE is the video. 

Anddddddd here is some food pornnnn.

This was, brunch. Two servings of hash browns, a whole egg, and 4 servings of egg beaters. And ketchup, obviously. I have been eating this almost everyday lately (this was the first time I used egg beaters, and bleh, they do not enhance the experience). Other than the egg beaters, this shit is soooooo fucking delicious. 

This was dinner, and it is one of my only claims to culinary fame. I have spent many years honing my fried rice cooking prowess, and I have recently gotten my magic really dialed in. 

I used jasmine rice, onions, eggs, soy sauce, sesame oil, olive oil, seasoned salt, and butter. All of the fat, especially the sesame oil, is key to getting a lot of flavor in there. Cooking the rice for a long time, in the pan, after it is already cooked normally is very important as well. You want the rice to start getting pretty dry, or you will just have soggy, strange tasting fried rice. 

I topped it with Yum Yum sauce and Sriracha. 

I need to do a little video about the Chocolate Twinkies, now that I got some more and kept them safe from Kourtney's devouring grasp long enough to try them myself. In case you are considering getting some ASAP, let me save you some mental time with this short review.... BUY THEM. They aren't going to change your life, one taste bud at a time or anything. But fuck, they are pretty damn delicious. 

That about does it for yesterday. And nothing extraordinary happened the day before that I wasn't able to tell you about with the missed blog, so fret not.

Be sure to stop by tonight around 7pm Mountain Time for the Lucky Charms stream!   

And until next time,

PIZZA AT MIDNIGHT

So yesterdays workout... Now, it was by no means anything spectacular by any stretch of the imagination. No awesome weight being thrown around, no insane intensity, and certainly no epic volume. But fuckkkkkk I am so sore today! I seriously can't even remember the last time that my chest was in this much pain, other than when I tore it and had surgery and everything. 

Food wise, I did pretty well. I even got to end the night with an entire Red Baron pizza. It was glorious. And obviously, not nearly enough. 

So that is really it for yesterdays run down. Some days will be fairly short like this one, just showing you what I did and ate. While others will be long, and ranty, like yesterdays was. But I hope that you continue to join me, for all of them. 

Until next time,
