Nutritionwise: Deceptively Satisfying

I don’t get to do this too often, but when I do, I make sure it’s worthwhile. Great meal with a good nutritional balance: spring mix, cucumber, tomato, mushrooms, garbanzo beans, and a sprinkle of cottage cheese. It was deceptively satisfying. #Foodporn

Got to Use the Good Energy

I must admit, it’s been an excellent start to what looks to be a promising week. Sunday was a pretty much all day beach day, but not before I managed to get in an early two hours of football (soccer). I usually play football in the afternoon every Sunday. When I heard that there was a relaxing beach day planned, I had to find a morning game which meant rolling out of bed really early and onto the football pitch. We topped off the day with a barbecue dinner, grilling some chicken and lamb….protein, though I did experience a few bumps in the day with regard to my nutrition, munching on some pretzels and a few Jelly Beans. Overall though, it was a day filled with good energy, good people, great exercise, and good nutritionally healthy food. Which leads me to today, Monday, another good day in my health, life and fitness journey, completing a solid chest, biceps, and abbs workout in the process. The past two days especially Sunday made me remember the importance of creating and enjoying good, positive energy from which to draw further energy and strength to be utilized during and stimulate the journey for the rest of the week.

Transportation Exercise

In Los Angeles, it’s very difficult to get around without a car. Most destinations are spread some distance apart. Walking is mostly out of the question, unless the desired destination is within fifteen minutes walk. So I got a bicycle. It doesn’t get me to all destinations, but it cuts a forty five minute or so walk to fifteen minutes give or take plus a great workout. Today was my first day using my bike as transport and I hope to continue using it, probably even to work. It’s not instead of gym as I just completes another fantastic back, legs, and abbs workout. The missing feeling that I recently posted about? Yes, it was back today. So I had a great workout, plus more with riding. My nutrition today was a little shaky, but I was good yesterday and will be good tomorrow….I definitely plan to be.
