I promised you pictures, there you go that was my Breakfast/Lunch I guess that means I had Brunch today. Let me explain; I worked from home today, so slept a little longer. When I got up, my coffee machine had my black coffee ready to go. I grabbed a cup drank about half of it and then proceeded to Lorie’s office, which doesn’t have all the electronics like mine and did a 10 minute guided meditation. Thank you to Ginger for sending me information on that Phone App, really made a difference, I could not believe how quick time goes. I decided after meditation to do a little Intermittent Fasting(IF), last I ate was 8PM the night before and generally with IF you want to go 12-16 hours. My intention was 12-13, sneak into the kitchen and fix some eggs for breakfast. Well, you would know that a lot was going on at work that required my attention, I never got to sneak away to cook my eggs. Next thing I knew it was 11, yes I was hungry, although not the same hunger someone has that is carb dependent. At that point I was at 15 hours so I decided to combine breakfast and lunch. You see my plan for lunch was some more left over steak and sautéed veggies from Saturday night. So I cut the ribeye up about 4 ounces and put in a pan with 2 Tablespoons grass fed butter. After giving that a few minutes, I put the sautéed veggies in to warm, I didn’t want them to cook much more since they were already perfect. Once that was warm I added 3 eggs and let it cook. Due to all the meat in the omelette I didn’t get a perfect flip, but close. After that I added some cheese folded it over and I enjoyed. Let me assure you that was probably the best omelette I have ever made, going to try again soon and use Fajita meat. After eating I did find 30 minutes to read at lunch. Almost done with another book, this one on IF, think my next book will be the new one from Robb Wolf Wired to Eat. So below I will detail my day:
Brunch – Steak, veggie omelette – Yum (eggs are Farmers Market, veggies are mix of FM and Organic from store) Ribeye is from store leftover from Saturday.
Snack: Yes this afternoon I had 1/3 cup Dry Roasted and Salted Almonds
Dinner: About to eat Lories Taco Salad, Which is Grass Fed FM Meat, with some spices, FM Romain Lettuce, tomatoes, olives, Jalapeños, cheese, carrots (these are the secret they provide the crunch you use to get from chips) This is absolutely one of the best salads, I am pretty sure this is the 3rd or 4th week in a row I have asked Lorie to fix it.
10 minuted Guided Meditation
30 minutes reading at lunch, 60 minutes after dinner
30 minutes Blogging
1 Hour Crossfit Georgetown (Great workout today, and thank you to Gary for being my partner today)
I should mention most people know I spend my day in front of a computer, I do utilize both at home and in the office a standing desk which I stand at least 75-90% of the day. I think it is important to take breaks even from standing, if you are very regular about it you will find yourself standing longer, but ease into it. Also don’t forget to look away, I am lucky I sit near a window, when I am on the phone in the office I have a wireless headset and you can bet I am walking around. Of course it gets a little strange when I need to look at something on the computer and I have to go running back to my desk 🙂
So what did you do today, feel free to comment, or if you want to keep it to yourself, write it down, keep a journal.
