Unlike the rest of you, I am at work this morning. While you drive to the beach for one last wave, or get a pick-em-up game of b-ball going with your bros, or get together with your guild for an epic raid, I am at work, making sure that the railcars that are supposed to be in Indiana don’t end up in India (this happens more than you would think).
Being as I have to be up for work on the weekends at 4:30am, I have not exercised today. Still haven’t decided if I’m going to do that or not. About a year ago, I did about 6 months of trying to get in shape… then I went on vacation and it all went to shit. But! During this 6 month period I had a decent schedule down.
Mondays, Wednesdays, & Fridays: the JFZ for cardio and light weights.
Tuesdays & Thursdays: Kettlebell (we’ll discuss this later) & situps/pushups
Weekends: OFF, except I still try and eat right.
Speaking of eating right, here’s what I ate since I last posted:
For dinner I ate another bowl of the Irish Stew I made (how did yall let me forget the peas????) with a glass of red wine.
Breakfast this morning was some yogurt with granola and some V8.
For a snack, I had a small pack of “smoked” almonds. They tasted like bacon-y almonds.
Lunch included a bag of Baked Lays, a banana, and a 6″ turkey sub. Water to drink.
I know yall are all tired of hearing me talk about this Irish Stew I made, but it’s hard to cook for two people without making enough to last for more than one meal. That said, I thought I might share the recipe with yall and you can tell me if you think it was healthy or not. I’m guessing not, because it tasted good.
1. Put a leg of lamb in a crock pot with some cubed taters, a cut up onion, and some baby carrots. Add salt and pepper and a little celery.
2. Turn on the crock pot.
3. Cook for about 8-10 hours on low. After this time, take out the lamb and remove the bone. Also, what I did right here is add a bunch of Instant Tater flakes to the broth, which thickened up the “soup” and turned it into a “stew”.
4. add some peas and let it cook for a little more, until the peas are donedude. I involuntarily skipped this step because I am an nincompoop.
Voila! Eat it up!
While you are enjoying that Irish Stew you just made, here is a photo of a dragon working out for you to admire:
