Just choked down an enormous salad of lettuce, raw spinach and raw kale.  Was pretty good!  Kale is a pain in the butt to chew apparently.  

 

I just hope my guts continue to be okay with this.

I usually bake or blend for that reason. If you do bake some you won't get as much out of it nutrition wise i wouldn't think but it'll flavor anything you add it to and they're still pretty nutrient dense anyway. 

 

For baking i just rinse them, pull the leaves, massage in a very light coat of extra virgin olive oil , lay them flat on parchment paper on a metal baking sheet, season with a light sprinkle of chipotle roasted garlic and bake @ 320-325 for like 10-15 min. 

 

You want a little crisp on the outside edges but watch it towards the end so you don't burn them. Little browned on the edges but not blackened. Don't pull them early either or they'll be dark green and soggy with the oil.

Welp the Kale didn't kill me.  

 

I wonder how long my guts have been able to handle this stuff.  I love salads but spent years not being able to eat them.

Cool beans. Glad it worked out.

Megasoup has been at it hard.  I'm a lean 225 now and I'm on my way to the best shape of my life.

Killed a core workout earlier on the stability ball. Didn't track my overall time but i wasn't working for speed. I did them moderate to slow pace with an emphasis on form, a full range of motion, a smooth controlled flow in the mid range synchronized with my breath and making sure i got a good quality of contraction on the end of movements and smoothly transition back to my starting positions. 

 

500 reps total with 12 different exercises. Rest periods of 30 sec for the first block of 1-4, then 45 sec for 5-8 and finally a full minute for the last block of 9-12. 

 

Block 1=210 reps

1. Crunches x 2 sets of 25=50 reps

2. Bridging Crunches x 2 sets of 25=50 reps

3. Bridging Sit-ups x 2 sets of 15=30 reps

4. Bridging Pelvic Lifts x 2 sets of 40=80 reps

Block 2=160 reps

5. Planking V-Crunches x 2 sets of 10=20 reps

6. Planking Reverse Leg Lifts x 2 sets of 10=20 reps

7. Planking Hindu Push-ups x 2 sets of 20=40 reps

8. Kickbacks x 2 sets of 20 each leg=80 reps

Block 3=130 reps

9. Roll outs x 2 sets of 15=30 reps

10. Straight Leg Raises x 2 sets of 20=40 reps

11. Side Leg Raises x 2 sets of 15=30 reps

12. Side Knee Crunches x 2 sets of 15=30 reps

I put on one heck of a good workout today. I'm rather proud of it. I've been working out every single day, because I am living in the camper, so I need to go to the gym to take a shower. It works out rather well for me.

I like to shower at least a couple times a day, but my gym closes at 9pm. And since I don't roll out of back of my pick up truck till afternoon, being a bartender and everything, 9 o'clock just doesn't do it for me. So I go to the bike shop. I have 24 hour access and they have showers there. It's some sort of urban center to park your bike and take a shower before work, it's pretty neat and awfully progressive for the Midwest. Anyway, I feel I have to earn my shower. So I go for a long bike ride.

Tonight I want to take a completely unnecessary walk for a pretty significant distance. I just want to kill time without screwing around on my computer or my phone or in a bar. Because of the demographics of my city, I would like to bring a gun with me. I got into a little bit of trouble last night, but because I am a freaking bad ****, I was able to safely negotiate my way through a bad situation. But I don't have a holster. And my criminal record prevents me from carrying, anyway. So I'll be selling this truck and moving out of the city soon. I'm just really sick of it. Sick of this city.

After my walk, I will ride my bike. "They" really are so bold as to call out to you, expecting you to stop your bike so that they could have a chance to hustle you in some way, but on a bike you pass right by them.

As this thread is fitness and training goals, it's important to keep in mind why we want to be fit. It's nice to look good, it's good to look nice, but we want to be healthy and athletic and muscular so that anyone who is stupid enough to attempt to make us a victim, will become victims themselves.

Some good inspiration going on here. My hardest time to exercise is when I'm on holiday...am away for 3 weeks but plan to do an intense HIIT workout 3 times a week for half an hour plus run or hike 3 times a week.

That's the plan anyway. I'll let you know how I get on. Where you at Nyte/sober, still going strong?

I ended up walking 14 miles last night.  It wasn't really challenging, I just sorta' got bored and turned around.

Log me down for 5-6 miles of jogging today. Jogged/walked to the track, did two laps and walked back home.
