It is Sunday Funday-- and Sunday Funday is taking on a different meaning these days, Sunday Funday = cooking and baking paleo meals for Hank's Birthday and a massage, ha, how times have changed.
Its been a good weekend, yesterday was TOUGH on the cravings. I was craving like a mad woman. And, I was craving sweets. I had almost oatmeal last night for dinner! I guess I should share all of the last two days of meals & WODs:
B: 1 egg, 1 chk sausage, 1/2 banana
S post workout: 2nd best smoothie in the world- progenex, kale, 1/2 banana, frozen strawberries, 1 tbsp of greek yogurt (my first in nearly a week), a splash of coconut milk, cinnamon, water & ice
L: chorizo & spaghetti squash (my new fav thing)
D: ribeye, baked sweet potato & salad with bacon, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes and avocado for my dressing
WOD at CFB: This one was a toughy.
Warmup: 10 Minutes to Set up & Prepare for this. Samson/Lateral Lunges/Burgener/ then we’ll dig right in (don’t worry, you’ll get ‘warm’ on your jog).
“Hidalgo”For time:Run 2 milesRest 2 minutes135 pound Squat clean, 20 reps20 Box jump, 24″ box20 Walking lunge steps with 45lb plate held overhead20 Box jump, 24″ box135 pound Squat clean, 20 repsRest 2 minutesRun 2 miles
I finished in 45:something- I forget, shoulda wrote it down. I did only one mile to begin with because of my knee/ IT band/ leg/ whatever is wrong with me that no one can figure out- but I felt great, and I felt great a 1/2 mile in on the second run, so I thought why not let's go for 2-- and for the most part it was okay but my leg started hurting with about 3/4 mile left-- its getting better...but it is oh so frustrating because I love to run, and I feel its one of the strengths I have, but its not so strong now. Oh well. Patience.
I was still tired from Friday's WOD, and extremely lazy all day.
B: egg & bacon, fruit
L: pre made paleo turkey meatballs, spaghetti squash & broccoli
S: pecans, 1/2 larabar I split with Hank
D: almost oatmeal
Activity: 30 minutes of stretching (did I mention how lazy I was??)
Okay, back to my crazy cravings! I mean, they were just out of control. Maybe its because mentally, I knew I cheated last Saturday, no idea. I wanted cheesecake, a Julie Darling donut (the best in the world) thanks to Kevin's posting on the CFB FB members page, and everything in between. Tonight I will be baking a paleo pie for Hank, but we'll probably lose points for it because it includes dark chocolate, which I think is off limits for the challenge, but at this point I am doing good not to eat a dozen krispy kremes, so I'm standing proud that at least I found the recipe on a paleo website!
I also had a dream that Hank & I cheated by eating fried mac & cheese, but we ate around the bread crumbs because that made us feel better.
Add to your knowledge…
Commit this passage to memory: “One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in his temple. 5 For in the day of trouble He will keep me safe in His dwelling; He will hide me in the shelter of His tabernacle and set me high upon a rock. 6 Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at His tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the Lord.” (Psalm 27:4-6)
