… you’ve had venison for dinner the past TWO nights. (And didn’t mind it!)
All the more reason to stick to it during the day — when it comes to dinner, Eric has some good (but not exactly uber healthy) meal ideas. We literally have a freezer FULL of venision. Ground venison, tenderloins, strips, stew meat… you name it… So we’ve started becoming creative.
Last night: Venison Hamburger Helper.
Tonight: Venison burgers.
Up next: Food Network.
Breakfast (7:30 a.m.): Green Monster! (Almond milk, spinach, chia seeds, flax seed, almond butter & ice)
Lunch (11:15 a.m.): Creamy Chicken Wild Rice soup, whole wheat pita w/4 slices Tofurky & spicy brown mustard, 1 blueberry Greek yogurt
Dinner (6 p.m.): 1 venison burger (w/sauteed onion, shredded mozzarella, bacon & ketchup, on onion bun), 1/2 c easy spicy red potatoes (literally so easy — cut up, throw on spices & nuke in microwave for 20 minutes), 1/2 c baked beans
Snack (9:30 p.m.): 4 oz almond milk w/vanilla soy protein (dumped the rest of the glass out — I really need to use the blender to mix, as stirring with spoon does not work)
> 35 minutes steady-rate cardio (ran on treadmill)
> Legs machine workout (3 sets of 12): Leg extension, leg curl, leg press, lunges w/dumbbells (20 each leg)
> Mini abs workout: 45 degree bench leg raises (3 sets of 10), crunches (3 sets of 20), plank (2 minutes)
Wellness Update: Day 2 without biting nails! 🙂 I think it just takes one full day of no biting to make progress. That first day was the hardest. The Burt’s Bees cuticle cream is helping smooth things out. I’ve also been using a hand lotion made especially for smoothing cuticles throughout the day at work. I think I’ll use the OPI nail growth polish again tonight, as the first round is wearing off.
