Another sweet video - chef Bobby Flay and his kitty Nacho Flay

Wouldn't have pegged him as a cat dude but you can't always tell!

As far as a me update, still hitting the gym with Emily. Hoping sometime that I'll have less random soreness on and off through the day but doing well otherwise. I must have pretty strong biceps since I had to up the weight pulldown machine to 60 pounds to feel adequate resistance around the 10 count mark. However other muscles need more work and I've been able to identify those (triceps, core, glutes, quads) so I can work on them. I've also done a mile each time I do the treadmill the last few days which is good. Still keeping an eye out for a convenient yoga class to get good stretching in but I should try to fit in some yoga stretches at home. 

I made some strawberry lemon freezer jam today - my first attempt at freezer jam that I can recall. It didn't firm up as much as I'd hoped but the taste is amazing so I won't fret about it being a bit thin. It'll still taste awesome on toast. 

Starting next Sunday I'm doing a vegetarian challenge to focus on the eating again and enjoy fresh summer produce. I'll make a post soon on the LJ Healthystart community if anyone wants to join in. It's vegetarian rather than vegan so eggs and dairy are permitted (though check those cheeses!)

Hope everyone is doing well *huggles*

Bebopping around YT when I should be getting ready for bed. Sunday night bluuuues. I like this channel "Facts" where Irish people try stuff and it's usually funny but they couldn't be funny when watching My 600 Pound Life. I admit to following that show. I feel for those who struggle, root for those who are busting ass to try to fix their lives and get frustrated at the ones that thrive on the drama and sabotage themselves.

Anyway, it must be the first ever YT video where the comments section is a breath of fresh air. Overwhelming support and love and the woman from the show actually commented and is touched! I also found her Instagram page and WOW, she looks so much healthier.

I'm following her on IG now because hey, if she can get herself healthy starting at over 650 pounds, I can do it at a little over 200 (though without gastric surgery in my case - she obviously needed the surgical help)
