July 12th Bug Bitin’ Fever



Hey there! Today was very adventurous to say the least.

Last night, when I was on the patio getting a marg with my girlfriend, I felt some bugs biting my legs. I didn’t think anything of it honestly, except that it was annoying. I woke up this morning and I had a lump the size of a golfball on the back of my leg… WTF.

So as the day went on I progressively lost my appetite, the bug bit kept getting bigger, and I was starting to get worried. Tried calling my Mimi since she’s a nurse and has the answers to everything but she was busy, same with my Mom in meetings at work. So I called the doctor’s office. Nurse analyzed my symptoms, that it was as hard as a rock, hot to the touch, literally, and she told me to draw a circle around the bite to see if it was getting any bigger.

So, I did as I was told, went into the doctor and turned out that I had a fever meaning it was infected, I was having an allergic reaction to whatever bit me (obviously) and we re-outlined the bite and it had gotten bigger!

Doc told me to take some ibuprofen with some food, get my temperature down, and take a perscription that would help with the allergic reaction aspect of my bite.

On another note:

I tried to cook my own ‘healthy’ version of pork’n’beans for dinner. It was interesting to say the least. I don’t think I cooked the beans properly, but I had left over Louisiana spicy Bratwursts, and then a few sauces from the fridge. It wasn’t too painful to eat, but hey I’ll get it better next time around!

Then after my workout, which was amazing I might add, I kind of gave in to the treats sitting around at home. My family had gotten Domino’s pizza for dinner and my sister just made fresh brownies from scratch.. Bad news.


Kicked Ass!!!! One of the best runs I’ve had in a while. The weather was really hot but it cooled down enough, and it was really comfortable. Feeling great afterwards, walked for about 10 minutes as a cool down.








According to my Calorie Counter App I burned over 2,428 calories and consumed 1,382 for the day. Breakfast was a banana, a small Iced Caramel Macchiato with skim milk, Oatmeal with dark brown sugar, and a clementine. Lunch was strawberries, half of a red pepper, and a cup of Jalepeno Lobster Bisque. Dinner was my own concoction of food… I decided to try and make ‘healthy’ pork’n’beans. I used cannellini beans, some leftover hotdogs still, some sauces (A1, Worsteshire, and BBQ) and then some cooked spinach on the side. I went and worked out and then came home to find more delicious and devilish food waiting! I scarfed down some chicken, pizza, and a few bites of brownie. Really regretting that one!
