The Long Hard Catch Up

After what seems like a long time of not exercising daily, it is hard to get back into my old rythem.  As I was walking my normal 4 mile route, I could feel the aches of protest in my joints.  The anger of gaining weight again pushes me forward to work through the aches and pains.  A singular goal to end the nagging voice of laziness in my head.  To drown out the voice telling me just to resign to a comfortable spot.  I turned on my music to listen to my inspiration playlist.

Getting Back On The Health Wagon

This is the official first Entry of my Fitness Diary.  From this day forward I will write daily as I get back on the horse that I call getting healthy.

Today’s Weight: 251.6 lbs
Exercise None:
Tonight’s Dinner: Sausage and Peppers

I am just getting back up from falling off the horse as it were.  So this is the first step.  Please give a like and any comments are always appreciated.

Spoilers:

With the end of the eight episode Defenders season.  The Hand is seemingly done.

End of Spoilers.

Where does The MNU (Marvel Netflix Universe) go from here?

Daredevil: I am hoping they go the route of Born Again.  And bring back King Pin to tear Matt Murdock’s life to pieces from the shadows.  Or with events of Defenders have Matt Murdock truly trying to be retired only to have Bullseye pull him back into the life of Daredevil to save his friends.  One aspect in defenders that can be brought up in Season 3 of Daredevil which would reflect the comics.  Open the season with a recovered Matt Murdock in Washington DC fighting to have a bill brought to law which would allow Vigilantes the right to be used in trials as witnesses and seemingly legitimize what Matt does on the side.  There is many things that can be done for Daredevil.

Jessica Jones: I would like to see things progress for Jessica and bring out the sidekick side of Patsy.  Maybe have Jessica go in investigative journalism to connect The MNU and The MCU by having Jessica work at The Daily Bugle.  Have Jessica go up against Bobby Tisdell or Victoria Hand.  Victoria can keep the whole H.A.M.M.E.R industries aspect of the MNU alive.

Luke Cage: Seeing the positive impact he had on Danny Rand.  Have Luke Cage and Iron Fist team up for a season.  A La Power Man and Iron Fist.  Iron Fist was way better in Netflix with Luke Cage.  Have Them fight Owl

Iron Fist:  His series was the weakest of all the MNU.  The way the season ended his appearance and powers returning in Defenders made no sense at all.  For season two like I said have Danny team up with Luke to help Danny build up his confidence.

Punisher:  As this character has not had a season of his own yet I am not going to say what I hope happens…..besides for maybe wishing Thomas Jane appears in a cameo.

The Defenders Season 2:  My hope is that All the MNU shows some how connects everything together.  In each of the series.  Have King Pin work in the shadows throwing hired guns King Pin has met in Jail against the Defenders.  And have King Pin return in The Defenders season 2 as the main villain like OHHHH IT ALL MAKES SENSE King Pin was making The Anti-Defenders Bullseye, Victoria Hand, Owl and Bobby Saint.  It is why I love the character of the King Pin so much he is a mastermind and knows how to get things done.

Quiche For Dinner?!?

When you think of Quiche do you think of dinner?  If not, you should.  Here is why.

What you will need.

Pie Crust
Frying Peppers x2
Shredded carrots
Cauliflower 1 pack
Chicken Breast (Cubed or cut into strips I went with Cubed)
White Cheddar shredded
6 Eggs (or more if you like

Line your pie tray with your pie Crust, poke holes in the bottom with a fork and set to the side.

Preheat Oven to 350
Saute your frying peppers and your shredded carrots set to the side.  Once your frying pan is clear,  cook your chicken with some salt and pepper.  Once it is all cooked through, place the veggies back in and stir together.

The cauliflower, steam it in the bag and than chop it up and place it into your chicken veggie mix.  PLACE IT ALL IN THE PIE PAN OVER THE CRUST!  Spread it out evenly and sprinkle some of the cheese on top.

Make your eggs by whisking them into a bowl with milk and salt and pepper.  Once your eggs are mixed together pour it on top of your chicken veggie mix.  Place whole thing in oven and start cooking until everything settles (If you want to not burn your outer crust place tin foil over the edge).  Once everything is cooked and settled, with the last 5 to 10 minutes of cooking take it out and sprinkle the rest of your shredded cheese on top and place back into the oven till done.

Hello readers.  It has been ten days since my last post.  But that is because I have been traveling and signing up for classes for the new semester of school.

For Labor Day Weekend, I traveled to my sister’s house in Saratoga Springs, NY.  For me it is a three hour drive, with nothing but well groomed highway, good music, and podcasts.  For those of you who have not traveled to the Adirondacks in New York State.  I suggest you go, the sights are breathe taking.

Once you get to Saratoga Springs, you are greeted with a lovely sight of one of the most historic horse racing track in all of the united states.  It should also be noted that Saratoga Springs is home to the Horse Racing Hall of Fame.  As Labor Day marks the last races for the season the Traffic into town was nuts.  If you do ever go to Saratoga go during horse racing season in the summer, it is when the town becomes the most lively.

Pulling up to my sister’s house I am greeted by my sister, my brother and my sister’s dog.  Taking my stuff into the house to stretch my legs after a non-stop three hour drive felt amazing.  After greeting everyone and taking a drink of water.  I am informed that we have a reservation at a restaurant in town.  So we hop into my brother-in-laws SUV and head to Three Vines.

Three Vines is a bistro located on Congress Street in a mini shopping center.  By looking at the outside you wouldn’t expect it to be so big on the inside.  But it was.  Three Vines is known for their meatballs.  So our group ordered five (Philly Cheese Style, Veal Style, Sausage, Broccoli Rabe and Sausage Style and Traditional).  Along with fried calamari which came with fried hot peppers in the dish.  For drinks myself, my brother and brother-in-law got mixed drinks that were available.  I finally got to try Deathwish Coffee Flavored Vodka for the first time.  (Because it came in the drink)  Overall my experience at Three Vines Bistro was very good and our server was very knowledgeable, friendly and warm.

The following morning I woke up early in order to participate in a charity 5K race for the horses of Saratoga that is held every year at SPAC (The Saratoga Performing Arts Center) Park.  I ran and walked because while I am in better shape than I was last year, I am not in shape enough to run an entire race.  I clocked in just over 50 minutes.  (I will improve and keep getting in better shape).  After the race, myself and my siblings returned to my sister’s house for a celebratory brunch cooked by my Brother-in-law.

Heading downtown is usually a walking experience but because we raced in the morning we drove downtown to Broadway.  The main street in Saratoga Springs is lined on both sides, with shops and restaurants.  For example, you have The Saratoga Oil Company which sells homemade olive oils, balsamic vinegar’s, and different flavored sea salts.  You also have the Saratoga Tea Store which sells various teas and organic honeys, it is like a locally owned Teavana store.  The Saratoga Coffee Traders can also be found on Broadway.   But on this particular trip downtown we walked into some of the other shops and looked around while we wasted the day away.

After going to the grocery store to pick up some things for the nights BBQ we returned back and helped cook dinner for the BBQ we were going to have.  Lots of good fun talking and joking around in the backyard.

Sunday was rainy so we spent most of the day inside watching movies.  Until we decided to go to The National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame.  My sister said after living in Saratoga for sixteen years she had never once thought to go in and look around.   The building it self is well kept and pristine to behold.  The displays are clean and well lit and the self guided tour gives you a good idea of the history of Horse Racing.  Even the interactive parts were interesting to look through and listen too.  If you are a horse lover it would be a great place to go even if just for the day.  Spend time at the race track watch a few races and than scoot across the street to the hall of fame.  Triple A members get ten dollars off the price of admission at the hall of fame.

Dinner took us all to Duo a hibachi restaurant.  LOOK OUT, VERY HOT.  HAPPY HAPPY.  YUMMY YUMMY. SAKI MAKES YOU VERY HAPPY.  Our cook was very loud and happy.  It made the experience very enjoyable.  The “spicy” sauce could have been a lot spicier though but it was good.  Duo is a place I would suggest you try out if you like Hibachi style dinner.

Thus ends my trip to Saratoga.  I had a great relaxing weekend and I enjoyed my trip up there and the return trip home to New Jersey.  If you ever go up to Saratoga stay at one of the many restaurants and walk around town, visit the springs for which the town is famous.  Try the local cuisine at the many restaurants.
