I kind of miss tumblr but I kind of don’t but I definitely miss tumblr people but I’m the worst at tumblr so I don’t know if I want to start again youknowwhatimsaying???
Small post no. 2:
I just remembered that yesterday while at work this girl comes up to me and asks, “what sort of coffee can I get that would be good but not, like, really bad for me?”
I didn’t quite know what she meant, so I was like, “are you looking for something sweet, or..?” and she mentioned having some sugar free cinnamon thing at Starbucks, “or something like that.”
So obviously the “good for you” coffee drink she was looking for=sugar free, low fat, low calorie, etc. I hated that I had to then rattle off our sugar free syrups, and chirp excitedly about how I could, of course, make her a soy sugar free caramel hazelnut latte. I hated the implication that this was the “good” for you drink, and that this was the way I was helping her.
I felt a confused mix of sads for girls constantly dieting and low fat things and body worries and then went home and ate some cheese with butter on it.
I just saw someone I follow answered an anon asking if it was okay to have a “huge breakfast,” “like 500 calories.”
My breakfast was 1000 calories.
I am full and happy and I pressed 85 pounds over my head this morning and I just ate bacon and I am still losing weight so from my end I think this way is better, no?
Ketosis and barbell complexes and unicorns.
Well, I might as well get it out of the way:
I haven’t been looking forward to posting today because Saturday night and Sunday I “cheated” on keto and most definitely kicked myself out of ketosis.
I am pretty bummed because I wanted to stick to it strictly for at least a month before deviating from it, and I didn’t. I don’t know if that means I should start my four weeks over, or what.
Basically, I went to a party on Saturday night that was really lame and in the wee hours ate several mini cupcakes and Reeses cups and a mini cheesecake…and then on Sunday I had intended to just get back into ketosis asap, but I met M’s parents and didn’t want to be the weird girl who doesn’t eat carbs for the first time they met me, so I ate potatoes, beans, and a piece of cake. /:
I mean it was delicious but I am annoyed. Not about calories, cause, fuck it, life and shit, but I feel like I failed at my experiment.
Lol at me for when I met M’s parents, looking preppy as fuck. They aren’t even conservative or anything, I just wanted to wear a collared shirt…
I almost wrote collard shirt. I write too much about food.
These pants are also really cute:
I got them at Charlotte Russe for 25 dollars and I love high waisted pants so I was happy. I may buy more.
Anyway now that ramble is over:
Today was nice.
So here is the thing with me: I am TERRIBLE in the mornings. I am not a morning person, and if you talk to me, I will probably answer in monosyllables. If you annoy me or bother me, I may eat your face.
Well M likes to annoy me in the morning because he thinks it’s amusing how I turn into such a whiny whiny whale, but this morning he woke me up and brought me tea and bacon. He has discovered the holy grail of waking up non morning people.
I came home from M’s and tried to make chocolate cheesecake mousse:
I figured I’d swing myself merrily back into ketosis in a way that reminds me of the good bits of it. I froze it a bit so it would firm up. I also had bulletproof coffee.
Then I went to work and brought a wee lunch:
Which was two boiled eggs and mozzarella.
Then I went to the gym. I biked to and from work, and then biked to the gym because I was going to do some cardio but then decided lol no I’ll just bike for another half hour instead.
I did chest today:
- Barbell Bench Press: 5x100, 5x105, 3x110, 2x115
- Dumbbell Bench Press: 3x8x30 lb dbs
- Flyes: 3x8x25 lb dbs
- Incline Dumbbell Bench: 3x8x25lb dbs
- Pushups: 1x15, 2x10
I have been having issues with my bench, so M suggested I do dumbbell bench presses as well. Well, actually, he suggested I do them instead for a bit, but I am stubborn.
So I also wanted to do a bit of cardio, so I decided to do Cosgroves Evil 8 afterward.
I have never done it before…and I am a cocky asshole, so I was like oh a 50 lb barbell will be nice and light.
That was dumb. I have never done front squats, I don’t have a lot of experience with cleans, and I had already lifted for half an hour and biked a lot. Basically I did my first round at 50lbs, and then was like nopenopenope and switched to a 35lb barbell. It took me a little over 12 minutes, but I did turn off the timer to switch.
Aside from me wildly underestimating how hard it would be, I loved it so much I want to do it always. I could probably do 40, that sounds right. Best cardio ever is the kind that is actually still weight lifting.
This has the triple purpose of being a post workout selfsie, showing my tattoo, and showing how jacked my shoulders are awwwww yeaaahhh okay not really but kind of.
Then I went to the store and bought this:
Lol. Two cheeses, pork shoulder, ham, bacon, deli turkey, salmon, and eggs.
Then I made dinner:
Which looks like a creepy face. It is very unassuming but it was so nice. Seriously dip things in garlic mustard sriracha mayo. This thing was a chicken sausage and zucchini. I know it doesn’t look like it but I promise that is a whole zucchini lol.
Also here are some (terrible) pictures of my halloween costume:
I am wearing this again this weekend and I am going to try to take better pictures…I just didn’t think of it because the parties were lame and not memories I particularly wanted to capture. I love my costume though so I am determined to get a picture that includes my horn.
…I was a unicorn, by the way. Did I mention that part?
Portland tattoo day:
So as I posted a picture of it already, you may know I went to Portland to get my tattoo yesterday!
I didn’t workout, since I had to leave a bit early; I made breakfasts for M and I:
I made bacon, eggs scrambled in bacon fat with green onions and sour cream, and black coffee. I also pawned some of my cantaloupe off on M mwahahaha
GOD DAMN THAT CANTALOUPE.
Anyway then I stopped at Starbucks and got some chai tea with a bit of cream (not like, a chai latte..just tea) and was on my way.
I brought a snack so as to try to prevent myself from passing out during my tattoo…
I had mozzarella, salami, and brazil nuts. Also I drank a lot of water.
The tattoo actually wasn’t that bad for the most part. It hurt quite a bit around my arm pit and the closer it got to my spine, but the shoulder and arm area weren’t too bad. I didn’t really know what to expect because I haven’t been tattooed since 2010 and they were both quite small, but I didn’t cry or whine or feel nauseous or anything bad at all.
Plus it only took 2.5 hours instead of the 3 to 5 I was expecting so that’s awesome.
Here is a fuller shot; this is right after she finished so it’s v red and mad.
I love it sooooo much; I can’t wait till I can take off the bandage.
Then I met my dad and we went to a Mexican restaurant:
I had shrimp ceviche with guacamole and spicy cucumbers, and tequila with soda water and lime.
Then we walked around Hawthorne. I love this area of Portland so much. We had coffee:
And I found a shelf of books that really spoke to me:
And there was this super manly barbershop that I thought was awesome:
And that was about it. I drove back home, and got annoyed with M because he took too long to come over and kept me from sleep which makes me rage.
We did sort of accidentally fall into a serious talk though; if things continue to move in the trajectory they are going, and since we are both planning on moving to Portland at around the end of next summer time, we might end up moving in together.
I told him I require a cat.
Long post is long.
Blah blah blah my life is boring gym foods work boyfriend sleep repeat.
So yesterday morning I went to the gym for legs (which I posted about), and then came home and had breakfasts.
I had crepes again:
A couple of them fell apart…they are cleverly hidden underneath the normal ones. I realized that I was making them too big which=failure.
Also I had bulletproof coffee; I have gotten a couple asks about my bulletproof coffee (which boggles my fucking mind because HOW IS THAT QUICKER THAN GOOGLE GOOD GOD PEOPLE) so I decided to show how I make it, in picture form:
Assemble ingredients: grassfed unsalted butter, coconut oil, and coffee. Note: these are coffee beans. They must be ground and brewed into coffee. Do not use whole beans. Do not use grounds. Do not use entire coffee plant. Results will differ from those shown considerably.
Add hot brewed cup of coffee to large vessel. I am using a pot because I don’t have any medium sized mixing bowls. Shut up. Add butter and coconut oil in desired quantities. I use 2 tbsp butter and 1 tbsp coconut oil.
Blend with immersion mixer. Alternately, use a small food processor, a hand mixer, Kitchenaid, etc. This immersion mixer was 3 dollars at goodwill. You can still see the price sticker in the second picture. They are very easy to come by. For the love of god do not melt fat into coffee without blending it. You see the foam and lighter color? You want this. You will not get this by melting butter into coffee. That’s just gross.
Pour into large drinking vessel. Drink and enjoy. It should taste creamy and nice and not like butter in coffee. I sometimes add a bit of stevia pre blending.
Okay now that we are done with that…
I packed this lunch for work:
Twas a wee avocado with sriracha and two oz Kerrygold cheddar.
Then I worked, biked home, and went to acquire costume things with my erstwhile roommate.
So, Halloween: I am not super excited (or at least I wasn’t until now), because a.) I haven’t been drinking so I am not in the mood to go out and drink a lot really, b.) I haven’t been in a place of really wanting to dress super sexy because I have gained a bit of weight since last halloween, and c.) I don’t have money or time for the costume I wanted to make…
But, I have decided to be a sparkly unicorn, and that made everything better. I bought a gigantic pink curly wig, I am going to make a silver glittery horn, I have colored glitter, and I am going to buy a lilac sort of bodycon American Apparel esque dress. Basically I want to be as girly and bright and obnoxious as possible. So now I am excited.
Then I made dinner:
M insisted I put the tiny pumpkin on the plate for the picture. Tiny pumpkin not part of meal. Tiny pumpkins are not ~*keto*~.
I had a chicken breast stuffed with herbed chevre and wrapped in bacon, and zucchini fried in butter.
Then this morning:
I went to the gym for shoulders and came home and had breakfast:
Which was two eggs scrambled with butter and heavy cream, an avocado, and sour cream. I also had bulletproof coffee. I might not post my lunch and dinner because it is literally the exact same thing I had yesterday for both meals.
I wish I wasn’t just going to work because I like my hair and makeup:
Okay time to bike to work, as usual.
Pumpkin carving tonight! I still don’t know exactly what I am carving…/:
