Happy Labour Day everyone. I had a fun day of physical labour. I did a lot of yardwork today. Well, I don't really have a "Yard" at this point because it's just a dirt area. What I did today was shovel about 7 super heavy wheel barrels full of heavy dirt over a 6ft fence in my backyard. I would say each wheel barrow was well over 100lbs so I wouldn't be surprised if I shoveled nearly 1000 lbs of dirt today.
I also did my insanity workout today...it was tough as usual but I feel like I'm getting better.
On a side note, have you seen the commercial for KFC's new "Double Down" sandwich? WFT??? It's disgusting. I can't believe they actually made such a sandwich. It's basically 2 deep fried chicken breasts used instead of bread with cheese and bacon in the middle. What the heck is wrong with KFC? It's like they see that all of the other fast food chains like McD and Burger King are trying to sell healthy food and said, "Screw healthy, let's give them the worst, most healthy thing we can think of."
That's my rant on unhealthy food today.
I had my friend from Japan come stay with me over the weekend and she told me that she has Cancer in her thyroid and had to have 1/2 of it removed. What a downer. She is the most kind, caring lady you'll ever meet. We did lots of walking and moving around while she was here because one of the problems with not having a full thyroid gland is she can't naturally burn calories like a normal person. She has to keep active and watch what she eats so that she doesn't gain a lot of weight or get more sick. She only eats 2 times per day but what she eats has to be calorie rich. I feel bad for her but I think she'll be fine with proper nutrition and medication. Apparently it is quite common in women in their late 30's early 40's so if you are in this category, make sure to have it checked out. Early detection will really help.
Alright, time for relaxing and sleeping.
