I had a more restful sleep, but that was due to me forgetting to set my alarm on my phone. I will probably allow my body to recover for today and just heal. I will probably be mixing up my protein shake and L-Glutamine dose and hopefully that may patch me up for the day. I still have time before work, so I may just hit the hay for about another hour or two, because I think my body needs a bit more rest to properly heal and develop the new muscular tissue. I will probably do a quick gut-buster session before heading into work and then do another on coming home. I can feel the burn, but the more amazing thing is finally seeing some development in my abs.
I will leave you all with two funny note until I arise again… Last night while compiling my nutritional information on the caloric count of my dinner, I figured I would send Braum’s a website e-mail inquiring if they had nutrition facts on their food. I got an e-mail this morning stating the following:
Thank you for your email requesting nutritional information on our food service items. As mandated by the Federal Government’s “Nutrition Labeling Education Act”, all packaged goods are federally required to have nutritional information on each package. This federal law gives everyone specific and accurate guidelines with which to follow.
Currently there are no federal regulations governing food service items, and therefore, no guidelines regarding how the nutritional information is provided, calculated, etc. Because of this, many national chains, who have volunteered their information, are facing legal challenges. Not having the resources of the large national restaurants, we have been reluctant to expose ourselves to the expenses in an unregulated environment. When official regulation and guidelines are available, we will be pleased to provide the information, just as we have on our packaged food products. Again, thank you for your concerns and we hope that you will continue to visit the Braum’s store near you.
In short, it comes off as “We have our prepacked goods (milk, cookies, ice cream, etc) labeled, but due to the fact we’re too small of a restaurant, we’re not required to have nutritional information about our foods.” A shame, but it leaves my caloric calculations at an unknown margin of error.
The second funny thing is that Trussville Mazda is shipping my parts in today, but here’s the catch… instead of my usual name, they somehow contort it to “Patrick”. It’s really funny, but well maybe not… I just need to contact my friend David in Allen and see when we can drop in the parts and etc.
