Easter cheating

So Easter came and went, and the dedication I had going for the whole30 was also on holiday.  I had a fair amount of candy, some cookies, some sweet tea and mac n cheese.  We were on the last week but I failed to hold out.  I have also had some problems keeping the 5,3,1 programming going steadily.  I have continued to get in some workouts but not as regularly and not as long as required to get the 5,3,1 strength work in.

With all the sickness throwing us for a loop, I’m glad that I’ve at least kept some training going. Keeping to a schedule while trying to work from home and all the extra things that are going on in our lives has been tough. I’m still down 10 lbs from about a month ago so thats good progress.  I need to get down about 20 more lbs to meet my goal.  I was down to 165 about a year ago so I know that would be about as low as I would want to get.

We had company and I cooked my best set of ribs ever this weekend.  I made my own sauce with fruit juices cooked down, with a bit of apple cider vinegar and spices while boiling down.  My sause was 1 can pineapple chunk (full size can), about 8 -12 oz of apple juice, seasoned with (about 1 tsp each) garlic powder, mustard powder, paprika, chilli powder, and Tony’s(x2).  I had that on a low boil for 1 1/2 hours then added a small can of tomato paste, after about 1 more hour I strained it.

One day i’ll put up my rib recipie techniques, not today.  For now check out the images of our home gym.
