Today was an example of someone seeming to be acting like a jerk. Nels and I had a lesson with the horses today. We started at about 11:30am and finished up at about 1:30pm so it was nice and hot. The horses were sweaty as were we. We loaded them up in the trailer and headed home but had to stop to get gas. I pulled into Safeway to get gas because it is an easy in and out with the trailer. I planned on pulling all the way in with the trailer so it would be shaded for the horses. I pull up behind a guy at the first pump who just finished pumping his gas and was getting back in his truck…thinking he would start up and take off and I could pull through. However, he sat there dickering around a bit, then finally started his truck and just sat there. I waved my hand out the window with a jester like are you going to take off? Then he turned off his truck and continued to just sit there. I was a bit peeved. I don’t think he could have missed the large truck and horse trailer behind him, but maybe he did. I just backed up and pulled into another spot still a bit peeved. I had to remind myself that I do not know his situation and had to send him thoughts of Love. From my perspective it looked like he was just being a creep. However he may have been having a terrible day and didn’t notice us, or for some reason even if he did see us he just could not pull out of there for a few more minutes. Whatever the reason, I reminded myself to send him love and best wishes and move on, and not let it ruin my day!
Days 10 and 11
Work out was an insanity recovery. It was a slower work out focused more on strength, core and stretching.
Shake made with Standard Process complete, fresh pineapple and apples, spinach, frozen blue berries, flax meal, cocoa powder and touch of vanilla. Also had half a glass of carrot juice.
Mid morning snack:
Whole wheat toast with avocado
We went to lunch with a friend today at Pan Asian. It was a little off our clean diet but much better than some other choices we could have had. Sometimes you have to say this compared to that. Nels and I shared some sushi and Kung Pow Chicken. We did have a couple bites of fried calamari. It was a better choice than say a burger and fries. I did eat more calories than I needed. So tomorrow I will cut back just a little to even things out!
Blanched broccoli and asparagus. Also a Juice Plus complete chocolate shake with apple, banana, flax meal, and frozen blue berries.
Steal cut oats with fresh strawberries, flax meal, a touch of vanilla, honey and agave nectar.
Snack after an Insanity power cardio work out
Standard Process meal replacement shake blended with fresh apples (we still haven’t bought apple juice!), spinach and cocoa powder. (If you haven’t figured it out I am a huge chocolate fan)
Snack before late lunch
Toast with avocado and tomato, glass of carrot juice and a few raw walnuts and peanut butter
Linner as Nels and I call it (late lunch and we are not eating dinner)
Our brussel sprout dish which is sautéed onions, peppers, mushrooms, celery, brussel sprouts, garlic and scrambled egg, seasoned with Bragg’s amino acids and ginger. (Like fried rice, but with brussel sprouts instead of rice)
Tonight we go to a networking event so we wanted to be full to avoid the temptation of snacks we do not need. When we get home we’ll have a small Juice plus meal replacement shake with apple, spinach and frozen blue berries.
