All 4 me
DESSERT CONTEST TIME
An extra wordVolleyball and lifting are my two fitness passions in life :) There's nothing like the feeling of spiking the ball straight down to the floor or reaching a new PR on squats. I love to be a sarcastic smartass ;) I love being humorous with whatever I post because we can't always take ourselves too seriously now, can we? ;P URL Disclaimer: This blog isn't about being "slim." It's about becoming stronger and living a healthy lifestyle. But I', not changing my URL to reflect that because a. I'm not creative enough to think of another cool name and b. It's an Eminem reference ;p

My lunch today was so point. A yummy salad and the best raspberry smoothie to ever grace my lips. A big shoutout to Bill Gates for donating the money to build the building where my new favorite cafe is located.
My mom’s bff bought my family 10 lbs of delicious butcher’s chicken cutlets as a thank you for always having her over for dinner.
all dat protein
Does she win the award for best mom’s bff ever or…?
Last year, I kept getting these reoccurring stomach pains that felt like someone was stabbing me with a knife. I went to the doctor and got tested for an ulcer and for allergies, but the only thing that showed up was a slight allergy to soy and rice (both of which I don’t each much of to begin with so it wasn’t the problem). However, the pains went away when I stopped eating my whole wheat tortilla wraps for lunch everyday. I got similar pains after eating eggs, and I stopped eating those too (which sucks because of all dat protein I’m missing out on). I’m not allergic to these foods but for whatever reason they give me let-me-just-curl-up-in-a-ball-and-die stomach pains. I haven’t had a problem in months though.
So I went to my schools athletic dinner last night and about halfway through the dinner the pains return, and with a vengeance. They’ve never been that bad. I had to leave the dinner early and then I came home and curled up into a ball. Usually the pains go away but I literally had pain up until the this morning in school. I kept waking up from the pain and it was just awful. I’ve never experienced anything like it.
I don’t know what set it off, if I’m allergic or sensitive to any kinds of food or if something just gave me gas (like gas bubbles in my stomach…I think that;s what was causing the pain but this isn’t a very precise or science-y answer haha). I’ve been feeling very bloaty and blah today and I’ve been grazing with snacks instead of eating real meals so my whole body just feels off.
On a completely unrelated note my room is getting to be a mess and I need to clean it because I kept it clean for a good 9 months and it can’t get messy again now wahhh.
Dinner at Rosie O’Grady’s Steak & Seafood after the show!! Grilled Jumbo Shrimp and Sea Scallop Risotto, a Cappuccino and Chocolate Raspberry cake!! So delicious!
Double the pork chops. Double the protein. Double the fun.
Chicken that has been marinated in teriyaki sauce overnight with some pineapple and other stuff that I don’t know because my mom cooked it. I’m so hungry after working that I couldn’t be bothered putting it on a plate #hostessproblems
I would have them with lunch every day last spring and I would get the worst stomach aches, the lie on the couch and die kind. I went for allergy testing and nothing came up, and I eat all other sorts of other bread products and I’m completely fine. Eventually I stopped eating them and the stomach aches went away, and I figured out that the wraps were what killed my stomach in retrospect.
I went to the deli up the road from the school for lunch today and I got a grilled chicken, roasted pepper, and melted mozzarella on a whole wheat. It was all good and dandy, and quite delicious, until an hour later when I got a stomach ache (it wasn’t as bad as it’s been in the past though). WHOLE WHEAT WRAPS WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME?!
I gave the full fat diet a try. I’ve liked it thus far, besides the difficulties because I’m not the primary cook/food shopper in the house. I’d still consider myself in transition to this new way of eating because I most definitely did not have everything figured out. I was starting to feel leaner and I felt like it was finally something that was working for me.
The bane of my existence is packing lunch for school. It’s so difficult to find things that hold up throughout my 13 hr days. I’ve been struggling to eat enough in school and ravenous when I got home. I liked the way that eating full fat made me feel, but just because I’m new at it and I’m pulling such long days it wasn’t working because I haven’t figured out just exactly how to eat. Like anything new, it’s a process, and with that one that I don’t have the time for.
Starting this week, I have night time rehearsals for the show. I won’t be home from 7am until 8 pm, with a 40 minute lunch period and a half hr dinner break. I’m loosing up on my diet and workouts. I literally do not have the time to worry otherwise. If I start to get a bit squishy - oh well. I’ll still try to eat healthy, but my options are limited and I just want to survive the next month without having to worry about eating.
I will however probably return to the full fat lifestyle one day because I like my meats and veggies and oils and PEANUT BUTTER.
Okay that’s it.
Fun story. Today I was trying on a dress for my costume that the costume director found at some estate sale (it was a little moldy smelling) and I tried it on and it was awesome. As I pulled it over my head, the zipper busted and now the whole dress is ruined because zippers were crappy back in the day. I felt like such a bad person.
It’s incredibly easy to eat out. I ordered a big juicy bacon cheeseburger, and then just ate it without the bun. Yummy meal, no dietary hassles. It’s a win-win.
