It's dumb that it's spelled Wednesday anyway.

  • 2 rice cakes, peanut butter and honey
  • 1/2 cup crappy decaf. Wasn't even good.

  • I had a coffee at work. Listen, it was on MY OWN TERMS, not out of addiction. Let's hope I don't start getting headaches again.

  • Spinach salad w/tuna, tomato, pepper, goat cheese.

  • 1 Bernana, 1 apple.

Workout tonight.

Bla bloo bla bla

and now it's Tuesday. I'm not going to bother filling your eyeballs with all that I ate this weekend. Let's just say there was a cottage involved. Beer. Chips. Sausage. Bacon and Eggs. Typical cottage shit. So, back on track startinnnnnnng NOW.


  • 2 scrambled eggs, 1/2 cup shitty decaf coffee. Pointless. PS I'm over coffee. I don't crave it to much. PPS, McDonalds decaf is THE BOMB.

Morning Snack:
  • 1 bernana.

  • Small cup of home made rice and peas. Brown rice. Jamaican styles. It's made with beans (like kidney) rice, coconut milk, onions, garlic and thyme. Needed more zing.

  • Honey and nut/seed bar. Yum. Datoo!

Workout: upper body. My face, mostly because my knee bothers me when I work my legs. It clicks/crunches. Also my hip/leg joint pops when I do leg raises. No like.

  • Salad w/tuna, tomato, rice crackers, goat cheese, red pepper & Newmans own vinaigrette. They were 2/$5.00! crazy.
Fuggun snack: Ketchup chips. Just a small bowl! faaack.

That's it. Time to update Mishkebob.

Wednesday disguised as Thursday

I love Wednesdays like these. Tonight I can't wait to watch Modern Family and hopefull enjoy a meal with ma man since he's been working late nights. I hate the rain because it makes me too hermitty but I love to sit on the couch and veg when it's shit outside. Watch my fave shows, surf the net. you know, the uje.

My sleep was ok. Took me a bit of a while to fall asleep but pretty much slept the whole night.

  • 2 eggs, scrambled. 2 giant strawberries.
  • water.

  • like, a TENTH of a chocolate cookie from Tim Hortons. No joke. it was amazing.
  • rice cake w/PB and strawberry. Extra strawberry on the side. (I'm all about berries these days)
  • lil bit of almonds.

  • Leftover stew w/brown rice in it. There probably isnt any meat in it, most likely just broth, onions and a few carrots.
  • spinach salad w/egg/red pepper/walnuts/vinaigrette - a smaller salad than normal.

This aft... not sure what I'll snack on, but i know i'll get hungry because I always am anyway.

fffuuuh you dont even wanna know about my ribs ordeal. Fine, here.

aight. Tuesday, let's do this.

I have a headache. Caffeine bullshit STILL? is this possible? fuhmuluh. It may be that, or ir may be something I ate at lunch...cuz it's only come along after lunch. There was probably sugar in the salad dressing I had...anyway

I went to bed way too late last night, I was grumpy, groggy and tired this morning. When turtle doesn't get the sleep she needs, turtle is a crab. Not a carb. Fact. I can't wait to hit the hay tonight I tells ya.

  • rice slop/almond milk/fresh berries
  • water

  • 9:30am: rice cake, PB and raspberries
  • some almonds
  • 1130am: nother rice cake/pb/raspberries

  • grilled chicken/veggie salad. 
  • Some bread and hummus/babaganoush/eggplant shit

Now: drinking a Vanilla Rooibos Tazo tea latte - soy milk. it's not that great actually.

Gym tonight. Happy about that. Perhaps it will help me to sleep well. Hollerrr. I will prob have a protein smoothie after le workout.

Worked out - mostly upper body but there was jumping involved. Skipping rope which I suck at (find the tall awkward cantskip girl) and some burpees with weights. Yea that's right. But I think I'm getting better at stupid burpees. HATE.

  • protein smoothie when I got home (then had a nice shower, had to wash ma hurrr)
  • spinach salad w/egg/tomato/goat cheese/crutons/lemon vinaigrette. delicious.

So, today wasn't that bad aside from the sweet dressing at lunch and the bread. Ain't nobody perfect aight!

kay. Breakfast:
  • rice cereal slop/almond milk/fresh strawberries/maple syrup/cinnamon

  • half a small piece of home made banana bread. Ok, so I wanted to be back on track with my clean eating this week, but maybe I should focus on cutting out one vice at a time. Caffeine being the main one. Because after I was eating the banana bread - which was delicious - not only was i thinking of the goddam flour that was used, i was thinking of the effing sugar. Ugh. I'll go crazy with this you know.
  • Just ate a few almonds.
  • nother snack - apple with peanut butter. we all know i love PB.

Lunch (will be..):

    It's the Freakin Weekend

    Ok so last night we ate friggen indian food and I felt like shit all night. Heartburn kinda. That shit just sits in my stomach. Not a good thing to eat too late.

    So, you'll be happy to learn I've just come in from a run. 5k. Usual. It was nice out, felt springy.. I love running in the summer, I love the smells, the flowers.... Everything. It was kind of muggy today actually. Not complaining though. Much better than cold rain garbage. I'm glad I went, I feel good and ready for the day. Got some cleaning to do and prepping for dinner. Having some family over, thinking of making pasta with meatballs. Home made of course. Probably a salad too.


    • Protein smoothie - mixed berries, fresh squeezed OJ (from one orange), whey protein powder and almond milk. Oh, and some flax seeds. I'm back, baby.

    This afternoon will consist of chores, a trip to the G-store or know what, I make a kickass stew, maybe I'll do that. Hey Narine, if you want an amazingballs recipe for beef stew, check Chef Michael Smith's recipe. I go by that pretty much-you don't HAVE to use beef short ribs, you can just use stewing beef, it's cheaper. All his recipes rule.

    Anyhoo, I'll let ya know how the dinner turns out, what I end up making, ok?

    whoakay, so I went shopping for groceries, made stew for dinner.


    • Some chips, various kinds. Not an obscene amount.
    • Beef stew over mashed potatoes - the mashed potatoes were made in the typical way - with butter, cream and sour cream. not too much of that stuff though
    • bit of a baguette
    • few glasses of wine, maybe four.
    • coupla fudge babies - MA, I got this idea from you! mmmmmm, guiltless, yet cocoa=caffeine. Not a lot of caffeine, but still present. I bought carob powder to use instead but I didn't want to force that upon my family, besides, it doesn't really taste like cocoa anyway. I think it tastes like burnt sugar or burnt marshmallows. 
    Still haven't had a cup of coffee since last Sunday. One week coffee free. Keep in mind I will drink coffee eventually, but like I said, on MY terms. Not cuz I NEED one. It will be cuz I feel like one. I don't miss the crash coffee gives me, that's for sure.

    So, Saturday was a clean/family day. I scrubbed the SHIT outta my counters, with Clorox guy. Felt good but made my hands dry. Anyhoo... bye.

    Fry Day

    Thank hell its Friday. I should be working on something right now but I'll just do a quickie post here.
    went to bootcamp last night. Sweat alot. Considering going to the military hated bootcamp tonight. ugh. We'll see.

    • rice cereal, almond milk, froz blueberries, maple syrup
    • green tea w/ginger and maple syrup. just a bit!

    • a pear
    • some walnuts/almonds

    • I've become a pro at making a whatever mashup in the frying pan. I was starving after the gym last night and wanted to just down a smoothie but felt it would be better to eat real food and have leftovers for lunch. So, I made some lentils, flavoured them with some spices, fried them up with some onions and red peppers. This was my lunch today, with some leftover sweetpotatoes. I am the leftover mashup queen, let me tell you.
    my coworkers were eating crap right beside me... McShittys...a bag of Munchies... I remained strong. Another one opened a bag of hickory sticks right beside me at my desk. the bag is still here. I kind of want some but not too bad. Should I go to bootcamp? or takeiteees?

    Ok, so I may have had a BIT of snackage at the meeting styles. I had two glasses of wine. One red, one white. I didn't enjoy them much and the white tasted SUPER strong. I ate mostly trail mix, like two doritos, two massive strawberries and a good handful of hickory sticks. Kill me why dontcha. We just ordered indian for dinner. I don't think it's creamy, just a curry with rice and stuff. Meh. I will run tomorrow if its not raining. Whatever. My scale said i was down a pound or few this morning, but, of course its up EOD. Bah.

    Thursday, May 12, 2011


    and in Narine's words, practically the weekend.

    Bootcamp tonight. GOOD. My abs still hurt from Tuesday. Good sign I reckon.

    • a big glass of water. I wake up thirsty these days and I always have to pee really bad at like 5am. ugh.
    • 2 eggs, scrambled. No butter, just sunflower oil
    • 3 strawberries

    For a snack imma have an apple with PB. I f-word LOVE peanut butter. All natural of course.

    Lunch will be leftovers from last night. BBQ chicken spinach salad, threw some sweet potates in the mix. Yum. prob get crazy and add some walnuts.


    I had the day off today. Spent most of it at my gramma's nursing home. No one like nursing homes, I wish we were rich and could afford a home nurse for her at her own home. This makes me sad. BUT we did have a nice visit with her, she seems to be doing well (considering) and we took her on a nice walk (roll) to Dairy Queen. She got some new wheels, so it wasn't too hard rollin her up to the DQ. My cousin did all the pushing, I was way too nervous or that. I was having visions of gramma either falling out of the chair, or us losing control of it and it rolling away into traffic. Yes, this is my mind. But I held  my nephew's hand as we walked, so I did serve a purpose on the adventure. Everyone got ice cream. I didn't. I remained strong in my own promise, and it only makes me look forward to my next indulgence, because I feel I'll deserve it.

    So, here goes:


    • rice style cereal, it's like a porridge made from brown rice. Easy to digest, no gas later. I put some almond milk and fresh berries on that shit. And a drizzle of maple syrup and cinnamon. GOOD.

    • Pear and fennel salad, with a cider vinaigrette, bit of rice syrup. It wasn't that good. I blame the cider vinegar. This salad tastes better with rice vinegar.

    I stuffed an apple and an orange in my bag and headed to the nursing home. Ate the orange there.

    When I got home, I had plenty of time to go to my hardcore bootcamp, but I was soo lethargic - prob from the caffeine bullshit - that I just had no desire to go. I'm sure it would have been fun too, since it was nice out. Oh well. I ate an apple with PB and a few rice crackers.

    • BBQ'd chicken with spinach salad and sweet potatoes. SOO good. I needed that dose of protein. FUUUCK vegan styles. I can live without dairy/sugar/caffeine/wheat every day but I needs me my meat and eggs. Sor-reeeeee!
    • Soda water with lemon.

    I'm proud I didn;t give in to ANY temptations this week so far. At the work function, or at DQ. Normally I'd be like, screw this I want some. Nope. sticking to my word this time. Now that I'm off coffee, I don't NEED it every morning anymore. So far anyway. I do enjoy coffee, so I will have some eventually, but maybe I'll stick to decaf soy latte's when I'm clear of the addiction. Onwards and upwards.

    May day may day

    I'm forcing summer now. Today I am wearing short pants, deck shoes and an airy blouse. I'm cold but I won't be once I am in the sun.

    • 2 rice cakes w/pb fresh raspberries/blueberries and a bit of honey
    • detox licorice tea - tastes like shit. I miss coffee. SIGH.

    • handful raw almonds, handful raw walnuts
    • bit of kale

    • leftover grilled veggies from the barbie - red peppers and mushrooms. 
    • baked kale.

    I've got a banana and an apple for later. FML. I was researching decaf soy lattes from Starbucks. There is caffeine in them still, waaaaaay less than a regular coffee, but still present. I was close to getting one but I couldnt find online what type of soy milk they use. If it is unsweetened I may get one. BUT I want to defeat the caffeine demon. I will drink coffee again but I want to drink it on MY terms, not my addiction's terms. AIGHT!?

    the withdrawal is less painful today. I am a bit tired still, and slightly hazy, but not as bad as yesterday. I soooooo want a coffee. Mainly because I can't have one.

    Anyway, Jose bootcamp tonight, looking forward to releasing some anxiety.

    Peace out

    Post workout:

    • protein smoothie - just mixed berries, honey, almond milk, why powder
    • 1 rice cake, 3 strawberries, honey
    • few rice crackers

    Caffeine headache seems to be gone at the moment. Thinking about what to have for lunch tomorrow
    I'm thinkin a ... wait a second i'm not working tomorrow! sweet.

    Monday, May 9, 2011

    holy no posts!

    Ooookaaay, so I haven't posted in a week. Shoot me! I'll try and sum up the week without too much detail...

    Tuesday I went to Jose's bootcamp as per use. Good shit, loves me my workouts now. Wednesday had a one on one training session with him, kicked my ass, felt good. Thursday we were supposed to have a work do in the evening but it got cancelled. So since it was so lovely out, we drank anyway. I had 2 or three pints of beer (BAD!) and like two glasses of wine later. Meh. Felt like shit on Friday of course, and I ate poorly on Friday. Not poutine style poorly, but falafel and some chips later. But not too many chips cuz I went to this other bootcamp which was fucking crazy. Run by this military dude who makes us do jumping jacks and shit. I hated my life but I am definitely going back.

    Weekend was bad too. Sushi, nachos (made at home) then a Mothers day meal which consisted of roast beef sandwich fries... i don't even want to talk about it. But basically this lead me to a new challenge:
    for the next five days, I will not consume ANY of the following...

    1. Caffeine - let me tell you, the withdrawal from this right now is not pleasant. I had no idea i was addicted to coffee. I have a hazy headache, I was feeling nauseous earlier and almost fevery. I will not give in.

    2. Sugar - in any way shape or form. I have rice syrup and honey. That is all I will use to sweeten anything.

    3. Wheat/gluten - I don't NEED this in my life, I'm okay without it on most days.

    4. Alcohol - I don't reeeeeally drink it daily, usually once a week.

    5. Dairy - no milk, cream, cheese... NONE. so far so good. (day 1)

    What I planned on doing was a vegan style thing this week, but I'm not sure if I will not eat any meat. I was challenged at a work function tonight (that was supposed to happen last week) everyone was drinking beer etc, there were delicious wings for everyone, nachos, POUTINE... omg but I wasn't dying. I was more bored that I couldn't have a brew. I ate a carrot stick and a celery stick. I dipped it in guacamole. That is all. And a soda water. OK I really wanted some wings, but I was strong and resisted temptation. I asked my colleague to just smear some wing sauce on my plate, or give me his bones so I don't look like a loser anorexic by not eating. He did not comply. But I managed to not get harassed for being a bird eater.

    Day 1 challenge, DOWN.

    I ate mostly fruits/veggies/nuts and legumes today. Fact. And this detox tea that tastes like liquorice. Maybe I'll have one now actually. Turrah.
