I sauteed some mushrooms and asparagus the other day, and it tasted decadent, thanks to this wonderful little product. Give it a try some time and let me know what you think.Breakfast;
The other day I slow grilled some grass fed ground beef. In a large non-metallic bowl, mix the beef with plenty of garlic, cilantro,onion, smoked paprika and a dash of cumin.Great for quick meals or to toss with salads. Just add 2 strawberries and you've got a nice little morning snack.
Pictures are not so great, as I took them with my video camera.
Andy asked me in a comment how my training is coming along. Do you all read Andy's blog? His wife makes him some yummy meals for sure. Take a look if you have a minute.
Well my 5k is around the corner, Oct. 8th. I'm still not completely happy with my 3rd mile, but patience is a virtue right? Key for me will be not getting caught up in the excitement come race day, and blast of the line with the real runners and end up running a 6:50 first mile. If I do that, I will close with a 10 minute third mile ;-) and I don't want that. My Nike Free's are holding up well, and I'm not suffering from any pains, aches or soreness, why I just wrote that is beyond me ;-)
For an explanation on this one, read the post.
Man did I set a lofty goal here! This is one tough SOB challenge.
The good news....I'm slowly making progress! I've managed to STRUGGLE my way to 2 muscle ups. The second one is REAL ugly, includes some swearing usually and a grimace or two ;-)
But, I get up.
The 40 dips are now a regular occurrence. I'm convinced that the weighted dips got me there. Dips with 50 pounds for 4-8 reps x 4-6 sets.
Same goes for the pull ups, but something is interesting there. I really get stuck around 17-18. I'm practicing for quickness with sets of 2, I'm practicing with weighted pull-ups, but I can't seem to bust through the 18 in a row mark. Any advice guys and gals?
The 50 push ups are not bad anymore. I've been loving pushups lately. I do all sorts of them and I'm convinced that this is truly one of the best exercises ever thought of. If you can do 30 quality controlled push-ups, start switching it up. Elevate those legs, switch height of your arm positions etc etc. The possibilities are endless. One of my favorites (go ahead make fun of me for using a Bosu) is using a large stability ball and a bosu ball, put your toes on the stability ball and hands on the wobbly bosu. Now put one leg up in the air, balance.....do 10 push ups, switch legs and do 10 more. That's one set. Do 3-5 sets.
Ok, that's it for now, move your body today, don't give in to those non paleo cravings and.....SMILE.
