You know- because starting first on Wednesday every week is the key to success...
Have I ever told you how sick to death I am of starring at four walls? Biking in the living room gets old- and in a quick hurry. Like- three months ago. Stare at the fish tank for awhile. Then the television. Then the dogs. Then the piano. B.O.R.I.N.G.
(How many times can you watch your lab lick his own parts anyway!? He was definitely going for GOLD last night... Gross. *gag*)
I cannot WAIT to get outside. Can. Not. Wait.
(It's supposed to be nearly 60 degrees this Sunday! What?!?! Yes!!!!)
For whatever reason, last night's ride on the trainer hurt. As in- my ass. For real. My tailbone was absolutely aching 20 minutes in. That's very unusual. I checked for that stick my husband is always talking about- but no dice. Must be random. ;)
When I tell you that I went HARD- I went hard. Do you SEE that speed? That is a TOUGH thing to hold on a trainer! As one of my Twitterpated friends said 'Anything over 16 mphs on a trainer is werkin'!' And he would be right! It's even tougher when you have your bike shifted to as resistant as possible... Yep. I am glutton for punishment. My thighs were SCREAMIN'. If I couldn't stay on the bike for an hour thanks to my assbone hurting, I was atleast going to work. And work I did!
The SWEAT! It was awesome. I could have filled a swimming pool for a small country. Felt. So. Good. I had intentions of also going for a walk, but I was a wet, sweaty, drippy mess and it was cold outside. Excuse number 5464691 kickin' in for the WIN.
Last night I was whining on social media about how much this vegetarian diet is absolutely killing my weight. How- you ask? Because I've conveniently replaced my lean protein with carbohydrates after having removed 90% of them from my diet the last two years. Smart, I know. My body has literally said 'WTF!?!' All the sudden, the scale is a fickle hizotch and I want to launch her through a window. Everytime I get on it I want to die. (Lol!) For real though, it does makes me mad. I should have given that up for Lent too... I mean- I'm confident that once this is over and I'm back to my former foodie ways, I'll be fine. But in the meantime I feel super crappy about my pants being WAY loose in the legs (thanks to my bike) but tighter in the waistline. Gah! That's what I DON'T need. A larger waistline. That's where ALL of my problem is. *sigh* Just have to make it to Easter... (I am doing VERY well with the vegetarian thing though, just so you know. 22 days down! 22! Wow! )
Did you ever make a diet choice that messed things up? When is spring coming? What's your favorite protein and why? (Keep it clean! ;)
Vegetarians, pescaratians, and overall awesome chef/foodie friends:
I want YOUR help! I'm so bored to tears with salad right now that I could just shrivel up in a gutter somewhere... Please, please, PLEASE send me your vegetarian or pescatarian (fish) recipes!
My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org You can also leave it in the comments here!
Why, you ask? Because I like to eat! I will make and POST my favorite recipe and give you a shout out and/or link back. For the record: I love soups, eat just about every fruit and vegetable, and am totally open minded. If someone has a favorite black bean burger recipe, I'm especially looking for that. Thanks in advance!
