Weekend Roundup!

Hey Everyone!

We got some more boards up on the cabin Friday, but I failed to get any pictures. It got too dark too early. I did get to bring my wife with me, which was nice.

Saturday I woke up early, and the wife and I went to a local diner and had breakfast. It is a family owned place and I am pretty good friends with the owner so I like going there. It has a very nice atmosphere. This was my coffee, one of the three I had that morning haha.

Later, I went with my brother and the groomsmen in his wedding, to get fitted. We met at his house at 11am, and left when his late friends got there at 11:30. Being late is a huge pet peeve of mine. Anyway, we had a nice time, everything went quick. Afterwards we ate at a place called “Taco Hut”taco-hut_orig.jpg

It is a pretty good sized Mexican restaurant with zero Mexicans working there that day…weird. It was good food with good service, and I would go there again in a heartbeat. It is one of the places I need to go with my wife, she loves that stuff.

I came home Saturday and my wife’s grandmother, mom, and sister in-law were still around. Our sister in-law of course had her baby with her. I was glad they were still there so I could see them all and hold the baby. Surprisingly they went to a Mexican spot to eat lunch too, so I guess she didn’t miss out on anything!

Come Sunday, I didn’t do much of anything worth mentioning. I was a pretty lazy day with not much going on. That is how I like to spend my Sundays. I’m OK with going hard most of the weekend on projects and what not, but I like to have a day to myself and chill a little. It can be with people too but just not a hectic running around kind of day.

I have been trying to get in the mindset of eating healthier. I think I have my head there but I haven’t told my stomach yet lol. I have a serious problem with self control, and eating. I get bored I eat. I get mad/sad/annoyed/stressed/happy, I eat. I haven’t been able to stop snacking all the time. I do eat health meals otherwise, but it is the snacking on crap food that gets me every time. My ideal goal would be to lose 40lbs and keep it off. I did it a few years ago, and gained it all back. I was running  two miles every morning before school and work and I watched my food like a hawk, and it wore on me. I gave it up and slowly the weight came back. I want to work on my self control and stop the snacking, and see where that leaves me. No real reason for posting about it, other than it was on my mind haha. I have wanted to go on a cleanse because I haven’t ever done one before, and I have also wanted to try meal replacement shakes. I watched a video on Soylent and it really gets me thinking about giving up food forever. Check it!

If you can get past the early stages and get used to a full replacement like that, you really could give it all up. Again, fighting the urge to eat all the time would kill a person like me but I think it would be cool. Let me know what you think. I know it isn’t full proof, yet, but do you think at some point we could be sustained by a drink? It would take the hassle out of meal prep and decision making out of picking a spot to eat. It would also , however, ruin some social gatherings. What about a step by step intro to it, could we replace all meals except dinner? Who knows, tell me your thoughts!

That’s all for now, I’ll see you all back again tomorrow! 😀 😀

  1. I don’t think it’s a good idea to go on a permanent liquid diet. Your body needs roughage to help with digestion. I think a liquid diet is ok for a cleanse or even to get a jump start on weight loss, but I think the healthier alternative is to slowly replace the junk food you are snacking on with healthier snack choices.

  2. I agree with feistyfroggy – also replacement shakes etc are not that yummy… it’s hard to stick with them long term because while there are some out there that aren’t terrible, you’ll be hating life eventually with all joy taken out of your food choices! My one friend lost a lot of fat in high school because on the way to school she’d stop and fill up a veggie bag full of various fruits – whatever was on sale or she was in the mood for – at the green grocers and she would only eat those throughout the day then have a sensible dinner (lean meats, veggies, grains etc) …Maybe try something like that first instead of replacing with shakes… I’d wager unlimited fresh veggies can be mixed in with the idea of unlimited fresh fruits… and it would be at the very least much tastier than a slim fast or what have you. I would expect that would also make it easier to stick with longer… just make sure you do eat your proper dinners and get the vitamins you need etc
