Back to the gym – Day 3 – The day after

Good morning. Last night was my 3rd day back to the gym and wow am I sore. The kind of sore that feels so good 🙂 My shoulders are aching, my abs hurt when I move or laugh and my legs are jello. This is a good start.

I have however, been going to bed late and getting a relatively short amout of sleep. This has been slowing down my recovery and regeneration but hopefully I can catch up this weeked.

That’s my short little recap/update for now. I’ll try and post a video later today.

PS: Feedback is always good and welcome.

I was ill for about 1.5 months and ordered by the doctor to not do any excersise until I was completely better. Guess what? I’m better!!

Now I start the journey to get back into shape.

There might not look like a big difference in these pictures but there is.

Victoria Day Turducken

Some of you may know this, most won’t, but my friends and I have been wanting to try a Turducken for about 1.5 years now. After looking and looking and talking and even looking for one in buffalo, NY. I finally stumbled across one in the Great Canadian Superstore on Wynford! I was totally shocked to see it…. so I immediatly bought it.

This was Jan 2009.

After weekend after weekend trying to find a time when we could all get together to enjoy the abomonation, the stars aligned. It was decided Monday May18, 2009, the Victoria Day long weekend.

Enjoy, we did.

Turducken Part 3 of 3 – Carving the meat blob

It was good. It was about 10lbs of solid meat. For $70, I’m not sure I’d buy another but it was an experience.
