Family Matters

Well, good morning homies! It’s hump day and I apologize for the delay I have been doing a lot of family stuff and I got caught up in that arena! The family had a scare because my girl’s aunt had to be rushed to the hospital but it looks like for now at least she is getting better! Loretta is one of my favorite people on this planet so I had to make sure my girl got a chance to be there for the fam, that’s what all this stuff is about! Family first, second to god in my book! I’m here this morning and your reading this so let’s get on with the get down!

Monday and Tuesday I actually got to work out before all of the family issues happened and they were quality workouts!(I love you aunt Loretta stay up in there!). my gym squad at the gym was completely absent and that’s weird for me to be in the gym by myself especially at like 1 p.m. in the day! I’m sure the crew will be back to it tomorrow, they are just people that workout at the same time I do but I don’t really know them personally but hey it feels weird when I don’t see my familiar gym folks. lol. Today is my all day cardio day and I started it off this morning with 30 flights of stairs! I have to do 35 today because I have to go up every week so I still got 5 more I owe, then I have my 100 squats to do and then my steps for the Fitbit and then swimming: so hopefully I will be able to get everything in! That’s the plan, what y’all got going on today, I’d love to hear what everyone is working on!

So if you follow me on Instagram you know I had a big carb day on Monday night and I mean it was a big one! Honestly, I don’t regret it one bit because I know I’m an addict and I know that means I have to get right back to me and that’s what I did. Tuesday I had a hard fasted workout and I ate really light and all keto! As a sugar addict, I have to be very careful when I eat a few because like a true feen it could compound and turn into a week or a month and several months, I got issues.lol. Having a cheat meal or day is something you just have to play around with and see how it works for you. Just remember it’s the exception, not the rule and you must get back to doing you as soon as possible because fat loss is slow and steady but fat gain is damn near instant in my book. lmao! O.k. that’s not completely true but it feels like it for me. Today I will break my fast with my Keto coffee and some bacon and shredded chicken! Then for my last meal, I will probably have a green smoothie and bowl of Shirataki noodles and chicken! The plan is to make a keto friendly lime cheesecake tonight for dessert but I’ll definitely keep it low to no carbs and have just 1 piece, I’ll let ya’ll know how it turns out as normal! We should be getting my keto granola and that grass-fed meat order tomorrow so I’ll be showing that off as well because I can’t wait to try both! We right back at it!

Do me a favor ya’ll, make a decision to be happy today! We all go through trials and tribulations but making a decision to be happy will help you to get thru anything. Don’t walk over all these blessings in your life and focus on what’s wrong today. Today keep in mind that you got a gift of fresh air and life today and that should carry you far today! No one is promised anything in this life but happiness is something we can have every single day and I wish that for all of you today! Let everyone know you’re happy too, that joy will help others get thru their day as well! Trust me it’s hard to have a rough day with a person who is positive and happy! I love you all and I appreciate your place in this world and in my life! Have a fabulous day!

Black Thumb!

I was super late blogging today because I was too busy running errands.lol. I have decided that I am going to start growing my own green leafy veggies in the house! I’m really very excited about this because I wasn’t aware that it was possible to do so. While researching on youtube the other day I stumbled on this method of growing plants in little styrofoam cups and I was in disbelief! I’m thinking since I eat tons of greens if this method works out then I’m going to get a little setup and a grow light and start growing my food. Now I know you all are thinking that he might start growing that sticky green stuff but I assure you all while I’m not against it I don’t use it because I have kids in the house and I don’t want them to be influenced by my decision. I’ll say this once they move out I’m snoop dogging it up in here though.lol. So today I got my soil and seeds and cups and I planted my first little garden!

Yesterday……. all my troubles seem so far away. These lyrics by Lennon are so very profound because honestly I was doing great until last night and then I decided to eat a whole bunch of stupid stuff. The problem was that I was super thirsty and I think I mistook that for hunger and started eating all kind of candy and I even had fudge! I never have fudge. Haha. It was really dumb because I fasted and I had a great workout and everything and then I beeped it up binging. It happens I know but I just think it’s silly when I don’t get enough sleep and I don’t drink enough water. I’m too damn grown for all of that. I’ve forgiven myself, not because there’s anything wrong with eating like that every once in awhile but for messing up my routine. I’m such a creature of habit and I just can’t handle the same amount of leeway other people can without having a major collapse. It’s just how I work. So today I am fasting for over 24 hours to reset myself and then I’ll hit the gym and that will help me feel better about my progress. I just can’t afford any dumb eating decisions right now, I have huge goals for my weight loss this year!

I notice that by going to the gym I have a ton more energy to do other stuff. The extra energy is great I just have to be careful because if I do too much than the family will expect me to participate in way more stuff.lol. I’m kidding but seriously it feels great to not be as limited by low energy. Even as I write this post my energy level is sky high. It may be because I’m so excited about my little garden experiment. Can you guys imagine this huge overweight black man dancing around his garden with a water spray bottle?! My gosh, I have issues! The most thrilling thing in the world for me is to learn new things and I’m like a 5 year old at his own birthday party about to open gifts! Of course, I’ll let you all know how the gardening goes and if any of you have any advice it would be greatly appreciated.

 

I salute you for taking time out to read this and I wish you a fantastic and joyful day!
