    Did you loose 5lbs after Thanksgiving on purpose?

    Believe it or not, this is on purpose. I've certainly half-assed some cutting protocols in the past, but now that Wife is sick and tired of my snoring (so she tells me), and all worried about cholesterol (whatever that is), I don't get the raised eyebrows if I skip a second helping at supper. Still plenty of cheating, though

    I don't have any goal weight for now, so I'll probably rely on the mirror to tell me when I'm skinny enough, and rely on OHP to tell me when I'm too weak.

    Default Meatball Sandwiches, Erok Style.

    So, we all love meatball sandwiches, but who has the time? Okay, rant over.


    1 pound of ground meat, mix in salt & spices, form into patties. Yes, like for burgers. They don't roll away when somebody sneezes.

    Fry patties in the pan, flip, then after a minute, dump a bunch of tomato sauce in there. Add more spices.

    In your spare time, toast your bread-like substance and arrange on the plates.

    When the patties are done, take them out and place them on the bread.

    Let the sauce boil down so it's nice and thick, then pour it over everything.

    Top with shredded cheese. You're welcome.

    To el supermercado! 5 tacos and over half a burrito (had to let wife eat something). That's muchas tortillas.

    Watched 6 Underground. Not even Ryan Reynolds could save that flick. It gave wife anxiety and vertigo. Could be worse, I guess. Not sure how...

    Thurs., 12/19. 215#. There's a difference between 'trying not to kill myself' and 'not trying to kill myself' with squats. Subtle, but it's there.

    Deficit DL: 140x8, 230x5, 280x2,2,4.

    All the foods. We then get the idea to watch all the Star Wars. Largely inspired by how much fun The Rise of Skywalker was. So far, we've done epiosdes I, II, (then I told wife about how good Clone Wars is), III, first two episodes of Rebels (actually really good), Solo, then IV.



    Thurs., 12/26.

    Prowler Sprints: 200 x 3.5, 4, 4, 2.5. woosh.


    egg-fried rice, sweet potato fries. Tried to watch The Witcher, but we weren't in the proper headspace, so we switched to BoJack Horseman.
    seriously, though, who the hell kills their own dog to sell to an alchemist?
    Episode V scheduled for Friday night - my all-time favorite.
