mikkei-it was freaking awesome! and we ate waaaaay too much of it!
lobsteriffic-the rice is a mixture of jicima, pine nuts, salt, rice wine vinegar and agave. you pulse it in a food procceser until its "grainy" like rice then dehydrate the whole mess until its sticky.


So i couldnt fall asleep last night to save my life until about 2:30 am. Needless to say, I am exhausted and the gym will not be happening this morning. I have to work all day and then giacomo and i are having a little celebration for joey's (our dachshund) second birthday! The little guy is growing up!!!! I know, we're silly. oh well.

Well you've got to be silly sometimes, or life gets boring. :)
Never had sushi, vegetarian, or otherwise. I don't really like slimy, soft food. :lol:

I'm definitely going to try that rice recipe! I've tried "bloomed wild rice" before, but it was a little too crunchy. Jicama is a wise choice. Never thought of that one.

i am so sick! :cry: :cry: :cry: its the weirdest thing. its just a headache but it is absolutely debilitating. :( it hurts to move, and i have taken advil (which i rarely do unless i'm in a LOT of pain) and drank a bunch of caffiene, lots of sleep (i'm talking like 12 hours), drinking lots of water, hot bath....i give up.....sigh.

anyway-here was yesterdays workout. i may just force myself to the gym today anyway. for whatever reason the headache subsided when i was on the elliptical yesterday morning.


Shoulder/Abs day
Warm-up:
Balance on Bosu ball on 1 foot, 60 seconds each foot.
[Cable Wood Chop @80 lbsx15/each side]x2
Squat and lift with 8lb medicine Ballx15
[Clean and Press w/ palms down grip @35 lbsx12]x3
[1 arm hanging lat raise @10lbx15]x3
[Rear delt Row and Rotate with tubingx12]x3 (this was very difficult form to perfect)
[Ball Knee Tuckx15,
Bench Blastx1 minute,
Side Plank and Reachx12/side,
Hip Hinge Absx20,
Double Crunch with tubingx15]circuitx3

30 minutes moderate intensity on elliptical.

Then i went home and slept for 4 hours, woke up, ate, went back to bed for 9 hours.

I hope i feel better soon.

Aww that sucks. Sometimes I get really bad migraines or tension headaches too. I've had them last up to 2 days. I hope you feel better soon!

walked to the gym and did thirty minutes on some strange cardio machine (part elliptical/part stepper???) and was sweating WAY more than usual--probably due to being sick and decided it was probably better to lay off the weights for the evening. guess i'll be back there bright and early in the a.m.
