Decisions, Decisions

20180713_063500.pngIt’s Friday and the weekend is about to begin, I’m very happy to be able to get out of bed early and get a jump on the day this morning! I’ve already brewed coffee, it’s very early and the house is very relaxed and quiet for now so this is the perfect time to get some work done before the family gets up and going. The Fiance’ and kids just got back from a fantastic trip to New York City and I must admit I am glad to have them back home. So let’s get this thing started!

Even though they are doing construction at my gym I was still able to get a few workouts in this week, in fact, I will be going again this morning for my last lift of the week. I’m thinking of getting some much-needed cardio in this weekend if the weather isn’t too bad, we are scheduled for a pretty bad heatwave this Saturday so I may be doing my cardio indoors.lol. I have been downloading some really great music lately which always helps my workout performance so I’m super excited about that! I’m working chest and triceps again today with a few shoulder exercises thrown in if time permits. The gym has been somewhat of a boring place for me lately but like I said before, I haven’t gone swimming in awhile and with so much going on here lately I have been less focused on the gym mentally even though my body is going.

On the diet front, the family came home from their trip strapped down with all types of candies and stuff I try to stay away from and I admit I had a few chocolates covered fat loss suppressors when they first got home. I didn’t go overboard however and I have still been making my food in advance to keep my snacking down. My diet of late is mostly my good ole reliable baked chicken but I have also been eating a good amount of broccoli lately. In fact, I baked some pork rind covered chicken last night that I will share with you all in this post as well as some plain baked chicken in butter. The plan is to go to Sam’s Club and grab some more steamed veggies to go with my chicken this week along with some pistachios and turkey bacon! Of course, no matter if I’m fasting or not I always have my morning coffee so I will be grabbing a few bags of whole bean coffee to stock up the bean jar! Nothing new here this week as far as food because with all the things going on I chose to keep it simple and what I know will be delicious and easy.

As you know I am a big believer in fasting and I have been doing various fasting protocols lately. This week I will be doing alternate day fasting which is by far the most, simple fasting there is in my opinion! I simply eat one day followed by a full day of fasting and repeat.I’ll probably do this for a month to give it enough time to see results and then play around with it depending on my fat loss results. I’m finding it easier and easier to tell the difference between being hungry or thirsty and it has really been a blessing to me. I try to keep well-hydrated no matter what so if I’m drinking a ton of water and I’m hungry, I know it’s the real deal and it’s time to feast! Actually, I feel much better in a fasted state than I do after eating lately and that’s just mind-blowing to me. There truly is something to this fasting thing and I wish everyone who reads this to try it out for themselves it may be the game-changer your looking for.

Recently I have been dealing with a really awesome job opportunity and while I am happy to be given this chance I feel like I am struggling with taking it. My gut tells me there is something just not right about the situation for me but the money would come in handy and the exercise on the job would really help me to shed body fat. The big thing is I don’t, nor have I ever truly wanted to work for anyone else. Most of my life I have and I have had some awesome jobs but while doing those jobs I always thought I wanted to do something I loved to do every day as my job! This offer is a blessing and I will probably take it but I’m doing so just to speed up my move to the west coast and back to the side of the country I love the most.  It’s something that can be long-term if I so desire but isn’t anything I would want to do for the remainder of my working life. I have a few days to decide if I want the job so that’s really cool and I have always been one to be thankful for any blessings coming my way as I am about this one. Like my youngest son always say’s “Living Is Work!”

Have a great day and a fantastic weekend and please stay safe

    Of course you are doing great and I am so glad fasting works for you!
    On the job front, do what you have to do. If that means taking it just for the money, you can always quit later! BUT, if it’s going to cause you stress and hurt your progress, then keep doing what you’re doing. 😀
    I’m behind you no matter what!

    I agree. If it sounds good, I’d say go for it. Worse case, it really sucks and you quit in a couple of days or something 🙂

    I hesitate to offer any advice on the job front as I know we’ve made some really bad decisions in the past not listening to our guts, but then again maybe it would’ve been equally bad listening to our guts (which has sometimes been the case too). I hope that you can get to a place where you feel right one way or another about it!

      Thanks I’m just wanting to make sure that I make a informed decision and there are a few red flags about the place and the management and I want to make sure that the money and the workout is worth it. The job is in the service industry and I’m wanting to take it to get in more cardio and of course the money doesn’t hurt!. Now that I feel confident that my understanding of how my body works in regards to fasting and diet are for the most point on par, I wanted to maybe have something I do a few days a week that push my limits by nature of the job! So I’d say 75% of the decision is cardio related and the other part is the money and I’m relatively familiar with the work. I hope this makes sense.lol
