My Friday started with an afternoon CrossFit session with Tristan. The WOD was for the people participating in the Crossfit Open Sectionals to be able to practice. I am not personally competing in them but it was fun to try out a workout.
Skill review: Power snatches
30 double unders (I did singles x3)
15 Power snatches (20lbs)
Power snatches require you to lift an Olympic bar from the floor to overhead in one motion. When I did my last onboarding session Tristan and I worked on these for a bit and I just couldn’t get it. Using your hips for the power just confused me. I know I was thinking about it too much!
Luckily for me I was able to rock the snatches this time! I completed 2 rounds plus 70 jump rope singles.
It goes without saying I sweat a lot!
After CrossFit I showered and got ready to meet the ladies at Anthem. I love that restaurant week allows you to try out places which you may not normally have tried. Anthem is located in the middle of Fanueil Hall and offered a very cool vibe. We got a window seat which was perfect for people watching.
I started out with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc. I loved the melon-y flavor of the wine. It completmented the 70 degree weather perfectly! I had two glasses over the course of lunch.
First course was a Ceasar salad. It was good, nothing out of the ordinary.
The main course was their margherita pizza with buffalo mozzerella, chunky tomato sauce and fresh basil. It was served on a wooden pizza plank (not sure if that is what it is called).
It was thin and crunchy and tasted very fresh.
Clearly I hated it 🙂
Dessert was a fried Twinkie served with fresh berries and whipped cream. The bottom got a little soggy from the berry juice but I liked it just the same.
Everything tastes better fried people! This we know. I actually haven’t had too many crazy fried desserts, but my favorite so far is a deep fried Oreo. Yum!
After lunch we watched some break-dancers for a bit then walked home. 🙂
What is your favorite fried food??
