If you haven’t checked out some of the comments on the IE/ME post, you should. They are interesting! I think they really are 2 different approaches to eating.
It was still hot this morning, but not too bad for riding to the gym for my workout.

Strength Training Move of the Week: Upright Row. This exercise is for the shoulders. You basically just pull the dumbbells or bar up to about your chin. You want to try to not raise your shoulders up to your ears doing this. Also keep your elbows up and don’t let them drop down or you won’t be working the shoulders.
Please note the lovely tan lines I have from all that biking (yes, I wear gobs of sunscreen). I really need to work on slowing down my reps. Note I also figured out how to edit the video so you don’t have to see me turning on the camera and getting into frame!
Then I biked home for breakfast. Too busy to go bike for the usual bagel on Wednesdays (wahh!). Of course, we are actually going to be moving bagel day to Thursdays anyway most likely. I’ll be biking there tomorrow, though, rest assured.
Instead, I had some pumpkin cream of wheat. Totally craving the pumpkin again, which is weird since it sure doesn’t feel like fall. Wishful thinking maybe?
I did let the bowl sit for a bit and cool down well.
Started work early because of the amount of stuff to do right now with John gone. Mid morning hunger hit, and I decided to have some blues!
I also had the Tour on muted while I worked (muted0. I almost never have the TV on during the day except to watch Jeopardy during lunch, but cannot resist live Tour TV.
Speaking of lunch, I broke for lunch when I was hungry, which ended up being about 20 minutes before I normally break for lunch on a time schedule. Another cool lunch. Like yesterday only with blueberries instead of strawberries:
We have worked our way through 3/4 of that big bucket of blueberries from Friday. Of course, I shared with family, but a good deal ended up in my tummy 😀
I had phone training this afternoon for my new job. Mostly just how to use their specific platform. Right before training started, I made an iced latte to drink during it. This is our little cheap espresso machine:
Mr. Coffee. It’s functional at least. This is cooled espresso. I put some milk and ice in a glass, then slowly pour in the espresso:
That makes the pretty layer. It’s just to look at for a moment, because I stir it up to drink. Served with a mini dark chocolate mint cup from the fridge!
I did some work for my new job for a while. I am limited as to how much I can do because they need to audit everything I do line by line at first, just to make sure all is okay. I’ll probably be released from QA in a couple days. Then I went back to the other job and did more work there. I started to get really hungry an hour before dinner, so I decided to have a pear:
Cold and refreshing straight from the fridge. This heat is making me want smaller, more frequent feedings.
Took a break for dinner. I was not horribly hungry, but I have a busy work night tonight ahead of me still, so it was time to eat.
I was going to have a nice cold salad, but my lettuce decided to get soupy. Ick. So, I just had the chicken with some sauteed brussels.
I am keeping up so far, but I have at least 2 more hours of work to do tonight, plus some order packing for the business. I am going to take a break later for some banana soft serve. Nana is already in the freezer!
Maybe John will bring me a nice present from Atlantic City for doing all this work 😀
Question: Have you ever worked 2 jobs?
