Happy, happy Friday!
My day is already WELL underway, after dragging my sleepy ass to the gym at 6am. As in, roll out of bed cursing at 5:40am, throw on just enough clothing to be decent, grab a hair tie and bottle of water and GO. Aside from being a decaffeinated crabby bitch at first, it was awesome. Check it out.
Warmup: run 400m. [10 pushups, 10 V-ups, 10 hip extensions, run 100m] + repeat 1x.
Workout: 30 each –> Deadlifts (105lbs), pull-ups, overhead squats (20lbs), situps and tuck-jumps. And that, folks? Is the scaled-down version of what you’re supposed to do! (also known as Rx.) I’m still a rookie, just over a month into CrossFit. My strength is not up for doing Rx yet. But I did what I could, and I am flying on endorphins right now!!! But come 3pm, I may be a zombie. We’ll see.
On to the good stuff – Five Foto Friday!
Monday morning, 8am, butt-in-dentist-chair, sticking needles in my gums, AND I have to watch the Bachelorette recap on GMA? Perfect. But the week could only get better after those shenanigans.
Almond Butter is a staple in my house due to CrossFit and following the Paleo diet. This bad boy is 26 whopping ounces (thank you, Costco) and yes, it is EMPTY. I cannot believe I haven’t gained 30 lbs in the month it took me to go through that…
Especially served over my new favorite recipe: Cinnamon Sweet Potato Waffles from Lauren @ Whole Wheat or Bust. (She rocks, go check her out!) The waffles are grain-free, dairy-free, sugar-free and Paleo-approved. And now, Peach-approved too! They are SO GOOD. I topped mine with almond butter and strawberries, and that there behind it is coconut milk. Yum.
Meet Sophia. Yes, I name my purses. And other things. Like the one houseplant I’ve managed to NOT KILL for 2.5 years no – his name is Herbie. Sophia and I had a date on Wednesday with a nice fella. Not sure that it’ll progress any farther than friendship, but it was nice to look and feel semi-sexy. It’s been awhile since I have.
Say hello to my badass sweats that rock my loyalty loud and proud. If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m a UGA alum and proud Dawg fan. I am getting so pumped for football season to start!!! Go Dawgs.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
