Don’t forget you still have chance to enter the WOD Addiction Clothing Giveaway. I will pick a random winner tomorrow morning!
On Thursday I woke up, foot feeling a little better with some anti inflammatory and Omega 3’s in me…So I thought I would attempt Crossfit since it was a “makeup” or “off” day and the coach could cater to my needs 🙂 More on that in a minute, but let’s start with breakfast 🙂 I woke up pretty hungry so I went straight for the waffles again!
Waffle Egg Sandwich (Again) I love these things! Repeat breakfast, but I was craving waffles… I do what I want 🙂 Would this be called a Waffich??
So then I headed to crossfit a little while later. The Crossfit coach told me to do some “flossing” on my foot where I roll a golf ball under my foot. Then he wrapped my foot with this really tight band (which felt awkward, and hurt a little) and moved my foot around in a ll directions. I think it helped the pain. I can walk, but it’s still sore to put pressure on the side.
About Nerve Flossing
“The idea behind nerve flossing is that when the sciatic nerve becomes trapped, it grates along the muscles and bones causing scar tissue to build up along the nerve fiber, says the Mavenlive website. This creates a lot of discomfort when you move, as the scarred nerve doesn’t glide smoothly, and flossing is required to break down the scar tissue — just as flossing your teeth chips away at plaque buildup — to improve mobility” – Source
I think I should just go get a foot massage 😉
The Trainer made up a WOD just for me 🙂

Then I did 3 Plank Holds
After Crossfit I came home and made lunch: It was a chickpea Kind of Day.
I snacked on some pretzels with cheese while I made lunch.
In the meantime I made some roasted chickpeas. These are great to have on hand for snacks or salad toppers.
And then I made:
Chickpea Avocado Salad
- 1 Can chickpeas- drained and rinsed
- 1/2 cucumber –chopped
- 1 Avocado- chopped
- Big Handful of Grape Tomatoes – cut in half or quartered
- Small bunch of cilantro- chopped
- Splash of Lemon Juice – Probably 1 tbsp
- Sea Salt to Taste
Mix First 4 ingredients together in a bowl. Add in Cilantro and lime juice last. Sprinkle in Sea Salt.n Toss and Serve! Refrigerate leftovers.
So Lunch was easy- Chickpea Avocado Salad with Fruit
Blackberries and Strawberries
And then a little bit of chocolate 🙂
Later in the evening I went to my first YOGA Class! I was pretty excited to try it out because I really need to work on my flexibility! I thought maybe it would help stretch my foot too.
DESSERT (Besides breakfast- my favorite meal of the day)
