please tell me it isn’t only Wednesday?
I feel like we are currently in what will go down in history as the longest week ever.
I wish it was “Jersday” for more reasons than 1!
Now, let’s talk food:
Last night I perfected my art of homemade pizza. Using one whole wheat pizza dough and one garlic and herb pizza dough from Trader Joe’s I crafted a pretty amazing pizza experience. Trader Joe’s dough, after sitting at room temp for 20 minutes, easily rolled into the rectangular shape I needed to fit the pan.
Of course I used what all classy cooks used to roll it out:
The pizza was divine. If you haven’t tried Trader Joe’s garlic and herb dough you must. The trick I used is to brush the dough with olive oil and throw it in the oven for 10ish minutes before adding the sauce and cheese. The crust came out so crispy. We also had Alexia Waffle fries on the side.
After an uneventful bootcamp last night, I woke up feeling famished and new that a smoothie was just not going to cut it today. I had a headache for the second day in a row which was either because I didn’t start my day with a coffee or my breakfast wasn’t great. Today I had two blueberry Van’s Waffles with peanut butter and a half of a banana. Yum.
Dinner tonight, which I am eating as I type, is marinated chicken fingers and macaroni and cheese.
I de-goobered the chicken (i.e. took off the slimy, fatty parts) Sunday and froze it with some left over Newman’s Own Teriyaki. The mac and cheese was Annie’s brand, similar to Velveeta shells and cheese, but not so salty.
Oh ya, and I tried a glass of this fun vino. It is a Garnacha that is about $12 a bottle. Price doesn’t mean it is good or bad, but I am still yet to find a red (besides Merlot) that I don’t like).
Tonight I got a pleasant surprise to find Tristan subbing for John at CrossFit. The workout was very unpleasant (this had nothing to do with Tristan I assure you, he is awesome). By unpleasant I mean hard as F*@k. Pardon my French but holy crap! First, let me preface by saying that this is my third class this week and I did run 4.2 miles Sunday.
Ok, today’s WOD was as follows:
Strength: 5×5 deadlifts
8 minutes each, AMRAP
- 10 box jumps (20 in box)
- 10 KB swings
- 15 thrusters (35lbs)
- 15 burpees
- 20 double unders (I did 60 singles)
- 10 toes to bar (I did a toes to air variation)
I started with ROUND 3, then 1, then finished up with 2. By the time I got to my final round, which I feel needed the most exertion of all, I had almost nothing left to give. Thrusters are hard after hanging on a bar and doing kb swings! In 8 minutes I managed to complete:
- 4 rounds of double unders/toes to bar
- 6 +some of box jumps/KB swings
- 2+some thrusters/burpees
I am totally burpee-d out this week and am totally looking forward to a day off from physical activity tomorrow.
It is getting close to my bed time so I gots to be going.
