Day 470: Post Birthday Post!


Hello dear reader! Thanks for being awesome!

So no post yesterday [awkward pause here] even though I had planned on it. Last night, we decided to make the drive down the gulf coast to the small town of Apalachicola, home of The Owl Cafe. It was amazing as always, and it made up for the crap I had eaten earlier that day. You see for lunch earlier that day I had a Fat Elvis burger at Tomahawks in Tallahassee. I know what you are thinking, and yes, the burger had fried bananas, peanut butter and bacon on it. I don’t know why I ordered something so fattening but I thought I wanted to treat myself. Little did I know that I was eating regret and grossness. That’s the last time I reward myself with food. Anyway, let’s talk about today.

Breakfast: Nothing like some awesome bacon and eggs for breakfast! I’ve missed that old standby for breakfast and I forgot how filling it was! Yumtastic awesomeness. 9 points.

 

Lunch: After running errands around town (AND WATCHING THE SEMINOLES FREAKIN’ DOMINATE THE TERD HEELS!) and before I played racquetball, I had a Boca chicken patty with an English Muffin. 4 points

 

 

 

 

 

Workout and Stuff: So I’ve been working out in my Zigtechs for the past 6 months or so and recently that have been really hard on my feet. I feel like my feet have been clamped in a George Foreman grill. Anyway, we went to the Shoe Box store to get our feet analyzed to see what would be the best fit for us. The salesperson suggested a pair of Vibram Fivefingers. I have wanted a pair for years so I decided to give them a shot. When I got up and moved around, I could immediately feel the difference. My weight was equally displaced on my entire foot instead on my heels and the balls of my feet. She told me to take it slow at first to adjust to them, so what did I decided to do? Why play racquetball in them of course! I didn’t know how that was going to go, but it turned out really well. I feet felt great and I had the right amount of traction. For my birthday, Megan bought me a pair of FSU Under Armour basketball shorts. They are freakin’ epic. (My wife is better than yours.)

Anyway, as I was saying, I played racquetball with my friend Alex who is in my department. One day in class, he had mentioned that he had came across my blog and that we loved racquetball. We had a blast playing and I burned a crapton of calories. Plus, I was in the fat burn stage the entire time. SAWS!!!

 

 

 

 

Dinner: Tonight, we tried a new recipe from Cooking Light magazine and it was EPIC! We tried the Maple-Mustard Glazed Chicken and had a side of green beans with almonds. The chicken was only 6 points a breast so it was a fantastic 7 points. I also had a Healthy Choice fudgsicle which was only 1 point. I also had 3 points of pretzels when I was watching football.

So today was really good in hopes it would offset a rough Friday. We will see how tomorrow goes, but whatever happens, I will keep on keepin’ on to drop those lbs. See ya tomorrow.

  1. That dinner looks delicious! I’m not sure if you are doing old points or P+, but the popsicle (however you spell it) brand fudgesicles are only 0.4 points. I have been keeping those on hand a lot lately because they satisfy my craving and are almost nothing on my points budget. 🙂

    The fat Elvis burger… holy cow! That just sounds… crazy. I know how you feel though on food rewards. Most of the time I regret them right after I eat them.
