Pork Products and Veg

Tonight’s dinner was boneless spare ribs and steamed vegetables, including broccoli, spinach, choy sum and snow peas. About 700 calories, totalling about 1400 for today. I will have some pineapple chunks and lychees (as pictured yesterday) after this post.

I walked about a mile today. I wanted to walk more after work because it was such a mild day, pleasant for walking, but It was a hard day at work and I did a lot more physical movement, including lifting and moving things, than usual. I was exhausted and dehydrated. After dinner and a bit of rest, I did do some house cleaning, so in addition to the walking this morning I had a more than normally active day.

As is often the case, I’m too tired to be interesting or insightful, but I think blogging what I eat helps, even if I have nothing witty to say. I hope I have something more to offer soon.

I’m Way Too Tired

Filed under: Eat Less; Move More — bigfatqueer @ 10:04 pm

I have been working longer hours and my weekends have been spent shooting and editing video for the last couple of weeks. I need a day to just sit and unwind. Maybe this weekend, although I do want to shoot a couple of things. We’ll see.

The thing about work, though, is that it is going to get busier for me until the beginning of next year. There is a lot going on. I would go into more detail, but I have always made an effort to put a firewall between my online life and my job.

The problem with this is trying to stay healthy. There are so many things I want to do in addition to my job that I don’t get much rest trying to cram everything in. I wind up getting less sleep, which always makes it harder for me to manage my eating. Limited time makes it easy to eat readily available crap. I have had off days and on days in the last couple of weeks. Today was pretty good. I took food to work rather than pick something up. I had Greek yogurt and fruit late morning. Mid afternoon I had some mixed nuts/pumpkin seeds and a glass of V8. Tonight I had a peanut butter and banana sandwich on rye and some tomato basil soup with coconut milk, curry powder and Sriracha.

I walked two miles today. An extra half mile was added to what I planned since roadwork was being done at 79th Street and Riverside Drive and I had to walk extra (up a steep hill) to get to a bus stop that was functioning.

Now I am going to have a cocktail and go to bed. I probably will not be able to blog as frequently as I would like for a couple of months. Not only are time and energy limited, but when I work all the time I get really boring. If you follow my videos lately you may have noticed I’m posting footage of New York scenery rather than vlogging. By the time I get home I have nothing interesting to say, except I’m way too tired 🙂
