After final yr’s 5.5 mile run the place I practically handed out from warmth exhaustion, I made a decision to retire doing a run to have a good time my birthday. As a substitute I figured I would do one thing at BCS Health…perhaps pull 56 energy on the skier machine, or row 560 meters on the rower, or do 56 reps of one thing.
Properly, none of that’s attainable in the mean time. So my birthday fitness photos, which beforehand regarded like this:
Now appear to be this:
Between the mind fog from taking ache meds plus taking so many pills, some within the morning, some at evening, some each – I needed to get a tablet organizer so I may make sure that I used to be taking every thing appropriately with out questioning myself partway by means of the day. At the very least I discovered one that may be a rainbow, so it makes me pleased after I see it.
Anyway, again to my new age quantity – 56. With nothing athletic on the desk, I used to be impressed to eat 56 completely different gadgets on my birthday. The thought got here to me after Jeff advised going to brunch on the new Casa do Brasil restaurant on the town – they’re identified for the gauchos who carry skewers of several types of meat to your desk and slice off a portion of no matter you select, however they’re additionally identified for his or her intensive salad bar, and I really like an excellent salad bar, so I figured this problem can be a chunk of cake. Additionally, there can be cake. We ate mild on Saturday and did not eat something on Sunday till we arrived on the restaurant, so our stomachs have been prepared for allllll the meals.
I used to be already one plate in after we remembered to take photos:
I took photos of every piece of meat however simply random slices of meat on a plate will not be significantly appetizing wanting, so I am going to spare you these photographs. I used to be getting fairly full and tried a number of sorts of meat – the parmesean-crusted pork tenderloin was actually good, as have been the Fraldinha – backside sirloin – and the Picanah – prime high sirloin. Jeff had the Beef Ancho, which is prime ribeye and he stated it was wonderful, however by then I used to be actually full, and I knew there was extra to return.
After we would gone house and rested for a bit, I added up every thing that I ate, certain that I used to be near 56 gadgets. I used to be shocked after I noticed that I would solely had 38 gadgets – I believed that for certain with the salad bar I would be close to 56 with that alone! Nope. So it was a problem for the remainder of the day to eat 18 extra issues contemplating I. Was. Full.
I scrounged sufficient gadgets, like a pretzel stick, a Goldfish cracker, a few items of popcorn – you get the image – to hit the magic variety of 56, ending with a chewy Tums, which most likely was one of the best factor to finish this problem with, do not you agree?
This birthday, I used to be feeling fairly bummed that I could not do my typical run or exercise to mark the event, so discovering one thing completely different and loopy like consuming my age was uplifting and enjoyable. Plus Jeff and I actually loved our complete expertise on the restaurant, and now we’ve a brand new restaurant so as to add to our record!
