Whoops. Last few days were filled with good food and booze. Ended up off my diet. Now back to food blogging
Had a snack around 5pm of a Jamaican beef patty from Golden Krust. Needed protein, thought itd be a good choice. Except the damn things are just a crapload of shortening and dough! Barely any beef in there.
Then went to the gym. Had a solid 60 minutes on the exercise bike on a hill/valley program along with a half hour of weightlifting. Hit 110 pounds on the bicep press for the first time - stoked on that count.
Came home to make dinner. Had salad w/ lettuce, cukes, tomato in an olive oil-zaatar-and-lemon juice dressing and two grilled chicken thighs, along with 1 piece of beef jerky. Dessert was one small dark chocolate cookie.
Walked a total of 3.35 miles and did 1056 aerobic steps today.
Not good, not bad, not terrible.
Not going to get into gluttony specifics. At one point or another, this weekend involved:
- An omelette with ham and cheese that was dowsed in… yup… chili sauce.
- Flatbread sandwiches from Marlow & Sons topped with grilled rabbit and crazy aioli-sauce things
- Turkish feta cheese pastries
- Whole Foods platters filled with pulled pork, quinoa and bok choy.
On the bright side, I was able to ease into Week 3 of Couch-to-5k with no problems. I never imagined I’d be able to do that. The first week, my body felt like hell - and now I’m able to do that. This is an achievement.
Breakfast: Bacon, egg and cheese sandwich from deli w/ a large coffee, 2 packets of sugar and whole milk.
Lunch: 2 grilled boneless/skinless chicken thighs with couscous and hummus
Dinner: Went on a buffalo wing bar crawl. Had five pints of beer, around 13 buffalo wings and french fries.
Snack: Had beef jerky throughout the day.
Exercise: Walked from Herald Square to 77th St and 2nd Ave.
Must eat healthier. Argh.
Messed up bigtime Wednesday night; was tired when I got home and needed to blow off steam. Had 32 oz. of Budweiser and 4 oz. beef jerky.
Breakfast: Starbucks cinnamon scone w/ 20 oz coffee/whole milk/2 packets sugar.
Lunch: Forgot to have. Whoops. Had two cans of Diet Coke instead.
Dinner: Chicken schwarma baguette w/ pickles, veggie, garlic sauce from Lebanese restaurant. 1 large piece beef jerky and one orange for a snack. Small coffee w/ milk and sugar to drink.
Exercise: Half hour of weightlifting and 45 minutes on the exercise bike doing a hill-climbing program.
