Good Morning!


I started my Monday off on the right foot for sure! On Sunday I did lots of prepping and I made this awesome Berry Protein Loaf.  I reheated some for breakfast and it was awesome.  I added a scoop of almond butter and I was totally satisfied!

We worked on Sumo Deadlits, which is basically just a wider stance than a regular deadlift.

The Workout of the Day (WOD) was:

100 Deadlifts for time – Every minute on the minute.  On the 2nd minute we did 5 Toes to Bar.

Here is a video of what Toes to Bar looks like.

I can do kipping toes to bar, but I can’t string them together yet!  And my calluses on my hands almost ripped open 😦  Not a good feeling!


I did 185 lbs sumo deadlift which was my personal record.

And I finished the WOD in 9:21, but I had to switch to V-ups because my hands hurt so bad!

After crossfit I went to Beefcake to get some more protein.  I got the Rocky Road flavor this time.  It kind of tasted like a mix of the chocolate and vanilla, and I was not disappointed.  I am looking forward to diving into some awesome protein treats with this one!

I also enjoyed my Fitmixer Amino drink while taking Lily to the vet.

Beefcake also had a new PB product.  I’ve tried the Original and the Chocolate PB2 so I thought I would try a sample pack of the PB thins.

They tasted like a mix of a peanut butter cookie/cracker.  They were very tasty!

Oh Lily, She is such a little model!

And this little egg stared me down the whole way to the vet.  I didn’t eat it though!  I ask myself why I buy these things and tempt myself!  I am trying to hold off until Saturday because I am taking my mom to Bonbonerie for lunch, and I know I will have a treat then 🙂

These are my favorite little eggs though.

I was starving when I got home so I threw together a bunch of random stuff!


Cheezy Caulifower Mash

This time I used 2 wedges of laughing cow garden vegetable spread instead of Parmesan.

A hard boiled egg-  Thank you Sunday Prep!


And I finished off the last of the guacamole with a few veggies.  This picture is from last Sunday’s dinner, so only about 1/4 of it was left.  But it was tasty!  See, I told you it was random.

I used about 1.5 avocado (the rest was brown and gross) mixed with Wildtree guacamole seasoning and salt. Delicious!

While doing laundry, dishes, cleaning up after the dogs, etc. I managed to make some Paleo Sweet Potato Brownies!

I will be posting the recipe soon. They are amazing!  Of course I had to try one before I bragged about them 🙂

Did anyone watch the bachelor???  I felt so bad for Ashlee, I thought for sure she was going to be one of the top 2!!

Have a good day!
