Feb 7 – High Carb Day / Shoulders

Hooray!  Moderate amounts of carbs all day!  I tried a few more of the sugarfree macaroons, delicious!  I also tried some of the Walden Farms Italian Dressing on my veggies, not bad actually!  will be keeping this bottle.

Chicken, asparagus and kidney beans on the menu today!  Must have ate like 8 cups of asparagus today and 2 pounds of chicken breast.  Stinky pee day!

As for the Peanut Butter, I forgot to read the instructions on the side of the jar, my bad!

How to Consume Walden Farms Calorie-Free Peanut Butter:
Step 1.  Scoop out generous serving from jar
Step 2.  Place directly in toilet
Step 3.  Repeat until satisfied

Escaped from work at lunch for an extra 30 min of cardio!  Hooray extra cardio on carb day!

Friday night woot!  No work tomorrow!  Time for fun!

I asked the trainer for some extra warmup and restorative work tonight, it has been a draining week and I missed my massage session.

Yes those are foam blocks under my sacrum, yes I am crushing them with my weight, ROFL.  Yes having foam blocks under your sacrum pushes your gut out! 

Admittedly it was light on the weightlifting tonight, but the shoulders were barking at me all week, so I gave them a light night.  I feel re-energized after that!  Bring on Arm Day!
