It’s been a while since I linked up with a proper WIAW for Jen’s partay so here she goes, A Day In the Life style.
This week we are moving our tushies to a chair over at Sprint To the Table so thanks to Laura for hostin!
I say that I was bummin because I’m still without a job…sigh…still searchin but despite being at home with the parentals for a bit, this week has been an overall tiring one with the big move into the new apartment with Rita (and Emily who will join us in the Fall). I have literally been driving back and forth to Guelph every day for the past 5 days straight and quite frankly, I’m exhausted of driving despite it not being that far really.
Today I DID NOT drive to Guelph but that doesn’t mean that this lil body stops movin because I just don’t stop.
Can’t stop. Won’t Stop.
Oh and guess what guyyzzzz…
I gained a pound apparently as of Sunday.
Big news. Really big news.
Now, I will finish that lil update by saying that I am only using the scale as a guide right now because I need to go up for my health. For general purposes however, I say give that piece of
sh** metal the boot and never own one because your weight means nothing in my opinion. Weight is so misleading and leads to obsession. Go with how you feel and look in your clothes and in your own skin.
So lets begin on this lovely sunny (lovin this warmer and sunny weather btw! Holler Mother Nature!) Wednesday.
7:25am. Alarm goes off. My tushie is upstairs makin breaky for my pre-workout. Warning: UGLY bowl of zoats comin at ya.
Sorry I’m not sorry. Their taste cannot be beat.
8AM. Nommin zoats and enjoying life. Watching Teen Mom OG.
Yes you cannot see that peanut buttah because that bite is eaten dead last. Yup I’m a “save the best to the end” typa person.
8:30AM. Sippin on the rest of my organic herbal chocolate orange tea (reheated) from last night while I let that digest before gymmin.
9:30ishAM. Drivin my lil butt to my back and oblique gym sesh
10:45AMish. It’s fig time.
Sorry no picture but these are the figs I eat after I finish my big opening set. This is my 5×5 with multiple warmups and drop sets to finish. In the end, I end up reppin out about 6-8 sets total.
The point of these it just to take the opportunity to get more carbs in me in a very small volume while also providing me with a lil boost to get me through the rest of my workout.
I sip on a bottle of water with BCAAs and glutamine in it during my workout.
12:10PM. Leaving zee gym. Good sesh. Need to drive home so I can demolish yet another bowl of zoats. Mwahaha. I love my zoats.
I rotate between having a stirfry and zoats post workout so that I don’t overdo the veggie department. The perk? I love eating oatmeal, so those zoat days are tolerated quite well… 😉
12:30PM. Home + Shower
12:50PM. Dunzo. Yes I shower fast. When the hair doesn’t need to be washed…
1:30PM. Behold another UGLY bowl of zoats but slightly different. More protein and carbbies, lil less fat so that it digests a wee bit quicker for post workout refuel.
I know what you’re thinkin…
What the hell is that?
It’s soo good guyzzz.
It’s basically the same idea as my pre-workout BUT with less egg whites so I can have my protein icing (Diesel Whey with cashew milk), which is peanut butter chocolate in this case, on top and no nuts or nut butter. Also, pineapple is my fruit of
obsession choice for post workout at the moment. Melted pineapple = amazing. Melted pineapple oats dripping with peanut butter chocolate icing…I die. Am I’m being too dramatic?
My nutritionist and I have recently added in some coconut oil which I surprisingly like the consistency of and touch of flavour it adds despite hatin on coconut. The oil is a good way to add calories without me noticing much because there’s really not volume increase.
Oh, and let me just show you my set up while we are at it so you can have a good laugh at me like everyone else does..
Okay you may think I’m nuts but you see I have a reason for my madness. I stand up right? SO I need the oats to be closer to my face so I stack up containers for my “table.” Secondly, due to the fact that I always have to pee before I eat (postworkout “I drank an entire bottle of water” problems) and that I need my oats to be burn my face off hot, I put that lid thing on top.
The water bottle is then on top of all of that because my hot oatmeal has warped the shape and it now isn’t flat…
Yes, I have issues but hey, I’m the master of making stable towers that have a good purpose, no?
2PM. Zoats done. Teen Mom OG still not finished, but I must now take zee lil babbeh out for her pees too.
I wish I could have filmed it though because she’s a lil smartie pants. She is so used to her dressing routine that she lifts each individual foot at a time for you to put her lil booty on it. My baby is a genius.
2:10PM. Ready to go Sissy.
2:50PM. I’m off again to pick up a few things from the grocery store and make my daily stop at none other then…
3PM. Reach my destination. Sobeys is the grocery store near my parents place.
3:30PM. Paid for zee goodies and headed back home before my nutritionist called me at 3:45. I picked up some extra lobster to supplement the claws I had thawing for dinner (just wait until you see those babies!), a cucumber for the salad, buns for my parents burgers and unsalted pistachios for moi cuz I was feeling some of those lil guys in my zoats tomorrow.
3:50PM. Had my phone call appointment with Gabrielle (my nutritionist).
4PM. Supps and some chicky.
4:30PM. Made my snacky for tonight (pudding, you have seen it floatin around the blog) while finishing up Teen Mom OG and some YouTube.
5PM. Started typing up this post.
5:45PM. Start cracking on my parents and my dinners. It’s time to fire up the grill as I have been doing EVERYDAY since I have been home. It really is true that everything tastes better on the grill.
I was grillin up sage and green onion chicken burgers (store made from McMaster’s Meats downtown Georgetown for any locals) for my parents along with some fixins. Grilled baby potatoes with Mrs. Dash traditional blend and pepper for my Dad and onions and mushrooms for toppins and sides (mushrooms on the side for my Mom who is weird and doesn’t like them on her burger…Love you Mom). Grilled kabocha on deck for me and a later and unpictured lobster tail.
Speaking of lobster, do you see the lobster on steroids I got to devour all thanks to the Guelph farmers market.
6:40PM. Dinner is served. Salad first for me while I join my parents for their before dinner drinks.
This was the big salad I made for the three of us. I topped mine with avocado and my own dressing. Lately I have been mixing equal parts lemon juice and apple cider vinegar, dried dill and oregano, black pepper, Mrs. Dash garlic and herb and mustard to thickin it up and blend it together.
7:10PM. Round two and the best part…
7:45PM. My parents sit down for their dinner…
Dad’s plate. I made up his burger with a toasted thin bun (which he first complained about because it was a “thin thing” but said he liked them afterwards), with those grilled onions and mushrooms, sundried tomatoes and his typical condiments of mustard and relish.
8:30PM. My Mom and I went for a walk and ended up at the grocery yet again for her white cranberry juice.
9PM. Back from walk, prepped my zoats for tomorrow morning (soaking oats with chia seeds and shreddin the zucchini), and finished up this post.
10PM. Sippin more tea, ready to link up my post and going to relax a bit before joining my parents downstairs with my typical puddin and 1/2 Questie. I’m thinkin mint chocolate for tonight. We shall see.
Well my lovelies, I hope you enjoyed this post and your Wednesday.
What are you craving recently?
What’s a good burger to you? My burgers are bunless (more tasting the toppins yo, plus I don’t do gf bread. Gross) with sauteed mushies and onions, lettuce, sundried tomatoes, mustard, basil pesto if I have it and hot sauce. Also, I tend to gravitate towards game burgers. Bison, elk, etc.
