I guess baking cinnamon rolls for company is my thing. These are a day late because their two-year-old woke up a little bit on the early side (or I woke up late!!!), and I didn’t want to keep them waiting for an hour or two for cinnamon rolls. So I just stuck the dough in the fridge and hoped for the best! It worked out fine! I just set the dough out when I got up this morning and let it rise again for a loooong time.
I always like to do elaborate baking, but I need someone other than Kevin to pawn it off on!! He sampled them tonight, but he’s going to take the rest into the office tomorrow!
I took this sleepy girl out to run a 5k before heading to open gym. Gotta get my October 100 miles in!!
I had about 45 minutes to spend at open gym and I worked on mobility, pull-ups, handstand push-ups, and double unders.
I actually pr’ed on two things today 61 unbroken double unders and 4 kipping pull–ups. I’m slowly getting there with those pull-ups. Oh so slowly.
I had double Starbucks today!! I’m still loaded with birthday Starbucks $$$$, and it seemed like a particularly brutal Monday. I drank the Skinny Vanilla Latte right away and put the iced Americano in the fridge to save and drink while watching Jeopardy!!!! Could I make a nerdier plan if I tried? Both drinks are only 95 calories, but lattes are not paleo. I’m surprised that I actually am more likely to eat dairy then bread/other extra carbs! Don’t care!!!!!
I actually had to work a few hours today before going to the 7PM wod. I peeked at the board during open gym so I knew what I had coming — boooo.
- 7 deadlifts
- 7 hang power cleans
- 7 front squats
- 7 shoulder to overhead
- 7 toes 2 bar
The first 4 moves are like a barbell complex — meaning, you are supposed to do them without putting the bar down. Ow. I had a bar with 75lbs and that’s 28 reps. I hated this workout, but that’s why I went in to do it. And the toes to bar are not a rest either. I asked if we could run 800’s instead, but no luck. I finished 3 + 16 @ 75lbs. I need to figure out what my problem is with hang power cleans. I can clean 105 from the ground without much of an issue, but the 75 from above the knee was killing me because I’m just muscling it up. Oops!!! Something else to work on during open gym, I suppose!
Taco salad with ground turkey for dinner and a few Garden of Eatin’ Sweet Potato chip crumbs!! Kevin and I could probably eat taco salads every week night.
The puppies are big fans of the new Wholly Guacamole 100 calorie packets!!! They’re lickable!
And guess what’s up — after my many years of blogging, I finally decided my blog should have a Facebook page.
Yes, the 5 people who like it so far probably all share my maiden name, but I know you want to be next. You can like my page here. I’m kind of excited because I don’t post a lot on my personal page because I try to tone down things like my CrossFit exuberance so I don’t annoy all my friends. But if you like my Facebook page, you’re just asking for it. :) And I mean that with love. Please do it so I look like less of a loser. If you feel like it. You never know what kind of insider info you might get……………. Haha.
What do you eat for dinner MOST regularly? When I was a senior in college — flamin’ hots & fountain pop. Mid-twenties, “pita pizzas”, and old twenties — taco salads!!
Have you ever ordered two Starbucks drinks for yourself? I can’t be the only one. Or can I?!?! It’s worth it!!!
Do you think you ever annoy people with being a fan of fitness/healthy eating/going to bed early? Yes. I don’t try to because hey, it’s not like I’m perfect or I’ve always been like this. I probably drink too much coffee. Haha. And people have their own methods and priorities and are in different stages of life, blah, blah, blah. No, I mean it. :)
