Day 48. Dedication.

What a wonderful way to cap off a week of family and food, but with even more family and food. Today we expect 50 people and I actually might even know them all. We’ll have catered Mexican and other miscellaneous grub to keep our guests happy, full, and entertained. Life lesson #48 – The secret to happiness is to do something for someone else. Host a party! If it’s 50 people or 5 people, be a host.

Happy 7th birthday to my niece and we dedicated her little 2-month-old brother to God and to the family.

Morning weight before all the festivities – 170

Today’s Meals:

  • 8:30pm –  Herbalife Formula 1 French Vanilla Protein Shake. 5 oz of Healthy Balance Apple Juice, 1/2 cup of Costco Organic Frozen Blueberries, 4 large Costco strawberries, and 1/2 frozen banana. 2 scoops of Formula 1 and 2 scoops of Herbalife Personalized Protein Powder. Herbalife supplements:
  • 11:15pm – Asian Baked Goods. Thanks Jade Garden for sharing!
    • Coconut filled sweet bun
    • 1 bite of Bakungo (not the kids roll-playing game). It’s a white, fluffy, sticky semi sweet dim sum style dessert that is usually cut into triangles. I’m not sure about the spelling, but it’s an odd dessert. It’s a 1-bite-only dessert even though I actually like it.

  • 2:20pm – Catered Mexican food and fresh fruits.
    • 1 1/2 cheese and jalapeno tamales
    • 1 cheese enchilada
    • 3/4 cup of Spanish rice
    • 2 watermelon slices
  • 3:45pm – Filipino bitko. My mother-in-laws specialty! Definitely restaurant-worthy!
  • 5pm – Filipino dessert/breakfast food

Today’s ActivitieS:

  •  Weights
    • Dumbbell floor presses. My wife was home today so this was a good time to check my assumptions I could do more weight without further injury. She helped me lift the 60 lb dumbbell off the floor to position and able to hoist without pain. With help lifting into first position, I feel I could do 75 lbs to help build bulk.

      • 2nd and 3rd sets, 12 reps, 50 lbs
      • 4th and 5th sets, 12 reps, 60 lbs
    • Biceps. Needed mini breaks at the 4th and 5th sets.
      • 1st set, 16 reps, In-and-Out curls, 20 lbs
      • 2nd set, 16 reps, Static Arm curls, 22.5 lbs
