Day One

I ate pretty well today.  Breakfast was an egg and a sausage patty.  Lunch was an avocado (and a half) with plantain chips and sweet potato chips… with a string cheese.  Then dinner was chicken cordon bleu “pasta” with spaghetti squash.  The bad:  wine with my dinner.  I allow that on the weekends, but I think I should change that to Fridays and Saturdays.  Sundays are harder, since I tend to work out on Monday.

Josh and I are getting a kitten.  This is unrelated to my “Viking” journey, but it’s still exciting.  My cat, Grace, can’t forgive Josh for being the one to sleep in the bed.  She’s not allowed to sleep on the bed (Josh’s ONE rule), so she hates him for it.  She’s 14 years old, and we’re getting a kitten.  I’m SO. EXCITED.

Back to the other stuff… I’m happy about what I ate.  I’m okay with the wine, since it’s a weekend.

I’ve ordered a Whoop band.  It’s a new activity band.  It doesn’t have a watch, it doesn’t take text messages or phone calls.  But it does help me understand how much effort I put out.  It helps me know how much sleep I need, and how much recovery.  And I think it’ll be a good guide for workouts.

I have more of a Viking body type than I have of a model body type.  I can’t express how happy that makes me…Food1

The picture is of the chicken cordon bleu “pasta.”  It was f*cking great.  Cream, gruyere cheese, spaghetti squash, chicken… just delicious!!

It all started with my friend, Christine. She called me a Viking. It's because I like endurance sports as well as lifting heavy things. Plus, my heritage includes Norwegians... It struck a chord somewhere deep down. I suddenly liked the idea of not having to be a small, slender person. I could be strong and thick. I could have mass. I don't want to be overweight or obese, mind you. I just don't like trying to be a waif when that is very likely unattainable to me. I have muscle (under this fat). I like being strong. So this is my journey of becoming more fit and liking the fact that I will never, NEVER weigh 120 pounds.
