I am feeling much better this morning than I have the past few days! I went to bed early and slept an extra hour in the morning. Today I am celebrating 8 months with my awesome boyfriend!!! That thought alone makes my day
This is the quote i need to learn and recite every morning when I wake up: “Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar.”
I ate a Paleo Kit for breakfast, which was much more delicious than I was anticipating! I think I am going to buy a whole bunch of these and keep one in my purse at all times to suppress cravings! After breakfast (8:00 am) I snacked on an apple (10:00) and pretty much focused my energy on work!! Right now I am working on End of Year reviews for my team so I may not be as descriptive on today’s post as usual….
I promise to follow up with more info later =)
I have the following planned: Baked Turkey, Strawberries and Blackberries! Then I snacked on some carrots and another paleo kit (3:00pm).
Work was non stop today. I was in and out of meetings, I dealt with customer issues and met with some of my team for their reviews. I got off work a little later than I planned and had to rush to the old apt complex to drop off my keys. I was able to go to Crossfit today, YAY!!!!
We had our usual warm up, then the challenge 45lb bar jump squats- as many as you can do in a minute. Then came the WOD: Pushups- 2 per minute then double the next round. We did this as many rounds as we could- then after you failed a round, you moved to the second part which was 1 pullup and 1 situp per minute the you add a rep to each the next round, you did this as many rounds as you could until you failed the round. All in all I totaled 19 rounds for both workouts. My hands hurt since i forgot my gloved =( Rough hands on a girl are not cute.
After the workout my coach stated that eating a carbohydrate within 20 minutes of the workout was a good thing. So they had me try a Hammer Bar: Almond Raisin….. AND yes it was a Paleo treat =) Right now my huney is grilling some steaks and i am getting ready for Greys Anatomy and staying inside away from the rain.
