I turned 28 years old on Wednesday, November 14th. For some reason, this age sounds old to me and I don’t feel that old haha. That being said it was a great birthday that I’m pretty much celebrating over 4 days. On my actual birthday, Sarah and I just hung at the house and got some Chipotle and Halo Top. Thursday night we went out to Grapevine (favorite restaurant) with my parents and Friday we had some sushi from a local place. To finish off, we are having a party tonight at our house with some close friends. It should be good times. I should rename it “birth week” haha.
The Giants finally won on Monday night to get to 2-7. It was an interesting game though because the team chemistry felt great. The players were acting like they won the Superbowl afterward. This could be a great thing moving forward for the rest of the season. There may be a slim chance, we could win the division if we win out and the other teams drop a few more games. The Redskins are 6-3, so they would have to go 3-4 for us to beat them. Which is possible because their remaining schedule is not a cakewalk. Same for the Eagles. That just leaves the Cowboys, who have an easier schedule than the other teams, but honestly are not that far ahead of us believe or not.
I finally matched my previous bench press PR on my birthday. 225lbs for 8, 7, 5 reps. My diet has been much higher in carbs recently. I don’t know what it is, but I think I may be developing a taste aversion to chicken. Every time I eat it recently, I almost get sick to my stomach. I’ve also been drinking A LOT of caffeine recently. Other than that, I’ve been eating good and have definitely started eating a lot of rice recently. Something about it is overly satisfying at the moment. My parents gave me some Orgain Protein Powder from Costco both Chocolate and Vanilla, per my request for a gift. This protein is impressive in terms of micronutrient content. It also mixes pretty thick, which I have missed in my protein powder. I may have to switch over to these as my primary source of protein. The Chocolate is better than the Vanilla as the Vanilla tastes like it has too much greens powder in it. That being said, I still feel like this is way healthier than just straight dairy protein powder, which has almost no micronutrients in it.
Until next time!
