I hope you had an enjoyable weekend. I am sorry I did not post but I warned you fair and square that it might happen. Ben and I had a friend over for the weekend and it was the Magic the Gathering Pre-Release tournament. If you had any doubts at all in the past about mine or my fiance's nerdiness... you can be rest-assured that we are, in fact, quite nerdy indeed.
It was a splendid weekend filled with a TON of laughter and a lot of fun. We ate a lot and some of it was not as good as others, however, we both stuck to our guns in regards to binge foods and to things we should stray away from-so we did well there as well.
I won't give you a run-down of the entire weekend but I can give you a few snip bits. We made home-made coconut pancakes (they were good but a bit dry seeming) ... we ate out a lot! and then today we had eggs and stuff... I know not a lot of excitement huh? I have pictures to make up for the lack of excitement-don't worry.
Today was my first day back at Cross Fit for real after my baseline. I am reminding myself continuously that I am not in competition with anyone but me. I have to push myself and I have to try my best. Today was one of those days. The ACTUAL work out was 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 of power cleans and chest to bar pull-ups for best time. (If this doesn't make sense to you... well... I am sorry but I suck at explaining LOL...) reps... so 10 reps of power cleans, 10 reps of chest to bars... 9 reps rinse and repeat. My set up however was 4-4-4-4-4-4-4-3-2-1 and rest when needed with no weight on the bar and jumping pull ups instead of chest-to-bars. Well... I did that... I rested 2 full times for at least a minute and a half and then pushed through the rest. I pushed myself VERY hard. I sweat like a pig before the WOD even got started... and my time was 7:30... I got done before everyone else... but everyone else did the full WOD. Was I cheating myself? ... no... I was getting my ass off the couch. I did what I had to do. I will keep going. Next time is Friday at noon... I will be there!
This time I had a banana before hand and had a shake, some eggs and a sweet tater afterwards... it really helped a lot having energy!
Wanna see some pics?
This was me cooking pancakes at like... midnight o clock... it was fun tho! :)
I love sausage! my favorite meat quite possibly... and pancakes YUM! they were dry tho :( boo
OMG! is that 2 Logans?! yes... yes it is... Logan made a mask of his face... because he knows I am secretly in love with him so now Ben can be Logan... yeah... we are weird.
My answer to cereal... Toasted almonds, walnuts and coconut with a bit of honey and milk... it was really pretty good.
Happiness in a pan! Onions and sweet taters cooking up together... yum!
Throw a few eggs on top! YAY! this is about half an onion, half a sweet potato, 3 eggs and about a tbsp and a half of GOOD OL FAT! :) (from the sausages!)
Hope you enjoyed what I had to offer! Be back soon with more reports!
