Crunching--- for data AND abs!
Tuesday, January 21, 2014
Well, this weekend wasn't all that productive. I went on a lunch date with Evan to a new (to me) burger place that specializes in sustainable, custom burgers and sides... sadly, he was struck with a crippling headache as soon as we got there. We rallied for a bit and played Minecraft all afternoon, but dinner plans got chucked out of the window in favor of soup and grilled cheese.
Sunday was a lot better; we made grits and bacon for brunch, cleaned the apartment, watched some football, and had big, beautiful salads for dinner. This will probably sound a little anathema to my foodie friends, but here's how it went: we took some chicken breasts, diced them up and broiled the heck out of them until they had this crunchy, slightly dehydrated top crust. Most of the meat was still very tender and juicy, but the texture on the top crust was incredible. I wouldn't recommend doing it with a nice cut of beef, but it just might work with pork.
Unfortunately, Monday was not a good day. I'm still waiting to hear back from the internship and UNC-CH. I know it's only been 2 business days on the internship and I probably won't hear back until February from UNC, but I'm not very good at waiting. I started to get irrationally worried that I wouldn't hear back, etc. It impacted my workout :( . I had no motivation to really do anything, so I just did one 3mi lap around the neighborhood and watched some weird indie movie from Mumbai. It's an interesting watch, called "Everyone Says I'm Fine!" and you can find it on Netflix.
On the good side, Evan made pizza spaghetti for dinner. I know, it sounds odd, but it's really tasty. Unhealthy, but we've modified it a bit to make it less so. We broke out the bright orange Creuset and I got to curl up on the couch and watch something dopey while he made me dinner. Night saved!
My mission today, aside from getting back in gear and doing more work with Zombies, is to go through the nutrition data I have here for the last two weeks and make a nice little document of data and recommendations for the two of us to follow. This is one of the tasks I will likely have to do when (not if!!) I get my certification as a Registered Dietician in a few years, so I might as well practice now!
Ok, so it's here to see:
Goals for today:
Fitmas 5 and 6, 10km+ in distance, 2+ "missions" in Zombies, data compiled.
