Day 231: Making a run of it

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

Goooooood MORNING!

I'm just going to take three minutes to thank everybody for all of the comments and support lately - especially on the protein shake blog - I know the whole 'weight gain' thing is a fallacy; but, it doesn't take the fear of 'bulking up' away!

One of the things I did realize from that blog is that I am almost vehemently opposed to 'natural' eating. You know, like, going organic or that kind of thing. First off - Organic is expensive. Second off, for me to go from a powder-shake to a food-based shake takes up more time.

I'll say it for the millionth time: I just don't cook, peeps. I don't do it. Some day, when I'm rich and famous I'll have a staff to cook and clean for me. Until that happens I'll just have to make due with pre-made tuna salad, powder-based protein shakes, and Subway six inch subs.

This week is going to be insane. Outside of having been hit with a wave of hormones yesterday (stupid girly-things) I've also planned a lot on my plate. First and foremost, I have a 5 mile hill run tonight. It's actually through the neighborhood I grew up in, so it's going to be AWESOME! Tomorrow morning at 6AM is my new cross-training for runners class. I'm stoked. I just hope that I'm not too fat/weak to be able to do the exercises well. I'm quite certain that they're not expecting someone like me at this class. On top of what I've planned workout wise I also just got crapped on (again) at work. I don't mind the long nights / fire drills; I just hope this one is a bit more planned out than the last one. It's always nice to see the crap-storm coming, though. I'm going to make a run of this week - slow, steady, paced, planned, and measured. I can totally fit all of this in if I just focus on what I'm doing as I'm doing it.

In other news, looking to chop all my hair off - I just can't take it anymore!

So far I'm on track for my plan - even if the scale still has me two pounds up from last week's low.

Oh, I did have ice cream for dinner last night.

Yeah, the ice cream is no longer welcome in my home.

    I too am sorry you don't cook. You can accomplish amazing things with relatively little time and effort if you do, but it is what it is. I will suggest the frittata /omelet option. You can throw all sorts of veggies, chopped up, fresh or frozen, into a skillet with a lid or into a baking dish/pan. You can jazz it up by adding a little salsa to the mix, or salt and pepper, or a little hot sauce, and a little shredded lowfat cheese is always a good addition. You can use plain greek yogurt as a "sauce" and that can be flavored with curry powder, soy sauce, pepper, hot sauce, even a little ketchup. This is a quick, easy variety that doesn't really require cooking. If you use eagbeaters type product you can mix the egg portion heavier on the egg white and that makes it lower cal/fat and fluffier.

    I wish you well in your endeavors and hope the issues at work head far away.

    Another awesome entry, I love to cook but it does take up time and often time in my world, convenience is king. I try to get around it by cooking a bunch of stuff on the weekend to serve me throughout the week. I also use plenty of premade stuff, like Tyson anytizers grilled chicken from the freezer section.

    I'm against organic for other reasons :X Yeah, it's expensive. I've had a terrible aversion to it for a while that I just couldn't put my finger on. Then I saw the Pen& Teller BULLSH*T (spark wouldn't let me type that) episode on organic foods, and it gave form to my hatred! Very informative :P I do realize that some people with chemical allergies and reactions to preservatives and whatever need to have the option to buy organic to just be able to EAT veggies, and that's fine. It's the stuff in the Bullsh*t episode that makes organic like some sort of cult the things that bother me about it.

    I'm sad that you dont' like cooking! I know it's not for everybody, but I enjoy it so much! :D You should take some vacay time and come visit me. I will cook for you! I will also teach you my bag-fu. That is how I make healthy dinners out of a bag when I don't feel like real cooking. If you come visit, though, I don't know if I can run. I may try running. But you can just stare at me spinning on the bike :P
