Day 13: A Hard Day's Work

Monday was Memorial Day, so to all of those who have honorably served this country, thank you for your service.  You provide us with the freedoms we often take for granted.

Today was definitely a day of work for the wife and I. After getting back from Lawrence, we discovered that our lawn looked like complete crap.  It hadn't been mowed in about a month, and the weeds were up to 4 ft tall.  So we took to action, me on the shovel digging up all the Dallas grass weeds in the back yard, and her on the mower, tearing through the vast swaths of St. Augustine.  We were out there for a solid 8 hours, mowing, weeding, putting in new soaker hoses, trimming, edging, planting new grass and getting new rose bushes for the back yard.  After that long of a day in the sun, you would think that a break would be deserved.

Not so with us.  We knew that after missing two days of workouts, we couldn't afford to miss another.  So we plowed on through an hour and a half of yoga following 8 hours of yard work.  Words cannot describe the exasperation we both felt after our workout, but we were both glad that we kept pushing through, and are staying focused on our goal of completing these 90 days.


Protein shake

Cliff bar

Salad (romaine, tomatoes, hearts of palm, Balsamic dressing)
2 Boca burgers (no bun, no condiments)

Snack 2:


Spaghetti with "meat" balls
salad with balsamic

Used some Nathan's "meat" balls to add some protein to this dish.  Limited the amount of spaghetti, so I don't get too many carbs. Definitely waited to exercise for a good hour after this meal.
