I can't move, but damn that was fun

Soooooo I may or may not have been sick about two weeks ago. I told you about that, right? Welp, it took me until this week to get back into the groove of CrossFit. I learned three things:

  1. You cannot come back at same level of intensity/awesome that you left at
  2. Do not take breaks from Crossfit, you will regret it
  3. GO EASY. Because what you perceive as "easy" will probably kill you

Friends. I AM SO SORE. I can hardly walk. I'm wincing in pain every time I stand up or sit down. Or move. Which is a lot. So kill me.

Yesterday began with a kick-ass workout all thanks to my girl, Heidi. She called it the Dirty Thirty. I called it Welcome to Hell.

30 Box jump, (24″, 20″)
30 Jumping pull-ups
30 Kettlebell swings, (24kg, 16kg)
Walking Lunge, 30 steps
30 Knees to elbows
30 KB Snatch, each arm.
30 Supermans
30 Wall ball shots, (20″, 14″)
30 Burpees
30 Double unders

Brief pause: Please add to my list of things I do NOT like: the phrase "kick butt." It just sounds weird. Say ass or don't, but don't replace it with a lamer word. 

To fuel me through the torture, I had half of one of these muffins that I made the other day to use up the five pounds of apples I had left over in my fridge. I have yet to take a picture, but once I do, you'll be the first to see. Cross my heart.

Once I got to work, I made myself some (beware: shocking spoiler ahead) PB&J oatmeal.

Except this time, there were fresh berries for the taking at work, so I jumped on that.

  I went out to lunch with a fabulous friend who is making me want to do more yoga and pilates and become a personal trainer. Damn you, Bex.

A few hours later, I munched on the remaining chocolate bar stashed at my desk. It's all gone now and I'm like a lost puppy.


For dinner, we slow cooked some beef short ribs and sauteed some kale with onions. 

I stuffed the beef in a corn tortilla and, on it's way to my mouth, I snapped this horribly blurry picture.

But, you get the gist.

 Now, I have two exciting yet random additions to today's post.


Numero uno: a surprise DIY project. 

We haven't taken proper photos yet, but stay tuned: it's a good one!

Lastly, are any of you playing this game ----->

If you're not: do yourself a favor and search for "Candy Crush" in the iTunes Store. It's free. It's addicting. DO IT.



I was so proud of myself for beating level 35 until my coworker said, "Oh, candy crush? You play that too? I'm on level 68, you?"


That's all for today. Til next time, you know the drill.
