Project Discover Week #15

Project Discover Week 15

Before I dive into this week’s update, I wanted to highlight a sale that began yesterday. Going on now until Sunday, May 21st (11:59 p.m. PT), you can use the coupon code MAY28 to receive $28 off the Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing course that I took. This makes the course $169 after the discount. From the first week after I took the course, I have increased my passive affiliate income and if you are looking to build an affiliate strategy this course will help a lot!

Now onto the week! Project Discover is my weekly series inspired by my 2017 word of the year, discover. Besides looking for a job I am focused on three things:

  1. Discover(ing) Portland
  2. Discover(ing) Exercise
  3. (re)Discover My Blogging Mojo

Instead of recording my failures on discovering Portland, I’m just going to say that the sun is shining and we are getting out of the RV more! The sun came out yesterday and is going to stick around for a week. We have plans to do a little exploring including a trip to Mt. Rainier (I know, I know, it’s not technically Portland…) on Monday.

On the exercise front, it rained most of the week so we only got out two days.  I had a weird 24-hour flu bug on Wednesday. I spent most of the day achy and shivering in bed, but totally felt fine yesterday. And as soon as the sun came out we walked along the river. We’ll get out every day and get some miles in now that we’ve got a stretch of good weather.

I lost another 2 pounds this week bringing the total to 14.5, just shy of Phase 2 of Atkins which will double my carbs (from 25 per day to 25-50). Mr. Misadventures has been enjoyed being in that phase the past two weeks.  I don’t think I will double it right away but I can increase my carbs a little bit if I want. I will definitely be doing that when we head to San Francisco for a few days next month!

We were starting to get a little tired of our food so we made some new dishes this week.  I did a shrimp, egg whites, and broccoli stir fry with the Miracle Rice and it was great. We also did lamb burgers with a cauliflower mash (with butter and parmesan cheese) and a chicken alfredo pasta with Miracle Noodles (it really was like eating the real thing!) along with French green beans. Last night I made some awesome tandoori chicken with zucchini that we grilled on our barbecue while we sat outside since it was so nice.  After a week of ahi poke every day in Kauai, it’s been two weeks since we returned and we are finally ready to eat sashimi again and we’ve got salmon and octopus on the menu for dinner.

Atkins has not been bad at all.  From time to time I want a bagel or a hand roll, but other than that, it has been rather easy.

On the blog front, I watched to a few webinar replays, updated some old posts, and compiled all my San Francisco posts into a single collection. Until I can do more updates on my job, that’s the best way to bring my content together, like I did for Hawaii.

It was fun interacting with some of the authors of my summetime reading picks on social media. Launching a book is hard and these authors really appreciate any support.

This past week I also caught you up on what I’ve currently been reading, watching, etc. So if you missed it, check it out.

That’s been my week, what have you been up to?

    I do not blog but if I did I think I would be doing everything Michelle suggests. She is so smart and knows what she is doing.
    I am sorry you were sick but so glad it only lasted a day and that you are better. Reading your updates motivates me to get out and exercise more. Thank you.

  5. Congrats on the diet results! It sounds like you guys are making some pretty delicious stuff along the way, too!
