http://www.therawtarian.com/raw-tuna-salad-recipe/ This is the recipe I tried. I might chop the celery and some onion in tomorrow for more of a flavor boost. But all in all I can't complain because it was healthy

Looks like I get to torture my workout buddy.... Trainers want him up to a lean 215 lbs which has my buddy freaking out. He doesn't want to gain any weight just wants to get ripped. So now I have the task of keeping him calm and pushing him into the heavier lifts since he is going to cut back with the trainers for budget reasons. I really think at this point I should go into personal training.... guess I better start pricing lol!!!! I love working with my buddy just kinda sucks cause I really like him and he isn't into me... Oh well just need to focus on getting him BIGGER by about March so that I can get him entered into Mayhem but really depends on when he wants to do his show. He is conflicted between competing and running. Teddy scared the hell out of me last night after he fell out of bed and started looking like he was having a small seizure/impersonating Stevie Wonder... All I wanted to do was pick my puppy (well almost senior dog) up and hold him. I swear anything happens to my bestest friend/fur child I am going to be beside myself.


So um yeah... talked with the trainer today about my buddy's eating issues and he said IF my buddy wanted he would compete with him!!! I know what I get to do come comp season.... be backstage helping with tan touch ups and mingling with competitors!!!!! Yeah this totally excites me beyond belief :)

Just tried to go for a run with my boxer and I swear never again!!! She kept trying to trip me and I also made the mistake of not taking my inhaler... had a mild attack while running so had to turn around to come home to get it. Will try again tonight on the dreadmill....

If I don't get work soon I am screwed end of story... I won't have money for food next week cause dogs will need food and I need to make a payment to student loan, the gym and one other bill I can't remember off the top of my head. Not looking for sympathy or anything just kinda need to vent it out cause I am tired of holding everything in and hiding from my problems. I blame myself for not being better prepared but I honestly didn't see what happened happening as soon as it did. I thought I still had a week to get things in place. Went to my first hockey game last night and loved it!!! Won tickets again to a game Friday. At least I have something to look forward to other than my workouts. Since I am not working I can at least go do long slow steady cardio sessions or practice running for my next 5k.

AM cardio: yoga 50 min, running/walking 20 min

Shoulders
DB shoulder press: 25 lbs 15 reps, 30 lbs 12 reps, 35 lbs 10 reps
Side delt raise: 2 sets 15 lbs 10 reps, 17.5 lbs 10 reps
Rear delt fly: 10 lbs 10 reps, 2 sets 15 lbs 10 reps
Arnold press: 20 lbs 12 reps, 22.5 lbs 10 reps, 25 lbs 10 reps
Leg raises: 3 sets 20 reps
Incline crunches: 3 sets 20 reps

Postworkout
Double protein shake

Breakfast
Usual overnight oats

Yeah local teams played last night Friday night a not so local team will be in town to play and going to that one too :) Trying to keep a positive outlook but with the holidays upon us it is tough. I can't go back to nursing home work especially since my body is repairing itself from the tortures I put it through for 7 yrs.

I have no idea what I did to my ankle but holy cow batman it flippin HURTS!!!! And on leg day of all days!!! I should of taken the day off but everything was tolerable. Cut out the lunges cause I knew that wouldn't work since walking hurts lol. Resting it up tonight and will reassess it tomorrow morning for cardio. Trainer has me doing calves, abs and some forearm/grip work. I can always cut calves if ankle still crap and can do step mill for cardio maybe dunno will see. Tonight I worked without my straps and my grip needs some improvement but that will improve. Attempted TKEs today and almost done with 1 leg and the band snaps, a piece hits my sis and somehow the band was still intact. I managed to pull it apart without ruining it!!! hahahaha

Cardio: 45 min walk on treadmill

Leg extension: 3 sets 50 lbs 20 reps
Step ups: 15 lbs 10 reps, 20 lbs 10 reps, 25 lbs 10 reps, 30 lbs 10 reps
Squats: 95 lbs 10 reps, 115 lbs 10 reps, 135 lbs 10 reps, 155 lbs 10 reps (didn't go past 90 degrees but wasn't small movement. knees felt super tight and ankle started aching)
RDL 95 lbs 10 reps, 3 sets 115 lbs 10 reps
Prone leg curl: 4 sets 25 lbs 10 reps

Workout buddy showed up with a peanut butter protein smoothie for me.... 32 oz..... It was YUMMY!!!!! Double the protein and thick just the way I love it! Tomorrow will be sucky since it is Thanksgiving day feast and all I get is black beans and rice, sweet potatoes and broccoli..... Everyone else gets to get the yummy junk food like rolls, pie, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole..... could care less about the ham and turkey as the smell will make me sick so will time my workout around that lol!!!

Today is Thanksgiving and it will be my first one gluten free.....That means no yummy Field Roast or Tofurkey, no yummy rolls, no stuffing, and no pies...... Instead I will be eating black beans and rice, mashed cinnamon sweet potatoes, roasted broccoli, and pumpkin custard. I might run to the store and buy a bag of salad for some more greens. I was really looking forward to stuffing but didn't prepare myself properly.... Oh well there is always next year! I did find a recipe just don't have everything and well the kitchen will be a busy place soon.
