Day 22: (154lbs) Arms Day
I am finally back on it! I guess part of the motivation was seeing a friend post about how he’s doing while on vacation this past week. His transformation in the last few weeks is definitely noticeable, unlike myself, with only a slight change. It doesn’t hurt either that there’s a contest among all the Brute Body participants.
Saturday, I got to work out with a new group. It was packed with cardio which was great, other than the fact I has ran 3.4 miles beforehand. I felt like a lead footed runner. The rest of the day flew by. I was running around the rest of the day grocery shopping. Being budget friendly means going to multiple stores and seeing which offers better deals. For example: Costco is not always cheap. Instead of spending $2.99/lb for chicken breast I went to Macey’s Grocery and spend $1.29/lb.
I also made three meals including a cheat meal for that night. I made a pot of yellow chicken curry, uova in purgatorio – eggs and sausage baked in a spicy tomato sauce, grilled chicken, and korean BBQ beef.
Sunday, I got 2 more miles in while the pups were at the park. A trip to Okubo Farm & Greenhouse after meant that for the rest of the day I was going to garden. I picked up not only flowers for the front yard but veggies and herbs for the back!
It took a whole lot of work to get the front yard right. Also, the amount of onions and rose bushes planted were quite ridiculous! I mean roses aren’t half bad but they have thorns. Who would plant something with thorns?! I do my own gardening and I don’t feel it’s necessary to add pricks every time I go to prune. Honestly, there are prettier blooms out there that require far less work! I started at 11AM and finished around 5PM. Plus side, no sunburn!
That night I began weighing and measuring out the meals making it much easier to track this week and I am also eating every 2 hours.
6AM: I had the typical breakfast of 3 eggs and butter coffee blend (bulletproof)
8AM: I had chicken soup from homemade broth and leftover chicken
10AM: I had a spicy turkey and sausage recipe from Nom Nom Paleo
12PM: Aidell’s chicken ceatballs
2PM: Cottage cheese and raw almonds
4PM: Protein Shake post workout
6PM: Yellow curry chicken
