Good Morning!  I want to give you guys a weekend recap real quick!  I well tell you about Easter tomorrow- let me just say, way too much sugar and candy!!


We went out for our friend’s birthday and ate at Bobby’s Burger Palace.  This was the burger I had. AMAZING.


Along with this..

Breakfast before Crossfit:  Almond Butter and Banana on a Van’s toasted waffle.


Crossfit was, well….it would have been brutal but I scaled the weight.

It was GRACE!


Clean and Jerks basically work your whole body since you have to take the weight from the floor to overhead!  Great Workout!

Prescribed weight for women is 95 lbs.  Let me just tell you my 3 Rep Max Push Press is only 95 lbs so this would have been super HARD and it would have taken me probably a half hour to finish!

Instead I used the prescribed scaled weight which was 65 lbs.  I could have probably done 75, but it was still a good workout.

I finished in 4:57.

After crossfit the husband and I hut up the hardware store and did some much-needed yard work.  The dogs have just basically torn the whole yard apart so we still have lots to do!

Speaking of dogs… This is slightly off topic but my dogs are so WEIRD sometimes.  For instance, Jackson will NOT eat his food until Lily eats all of hers first.  He just sits there and waits until she leaves the room.

Do your pets have any weird quirks?

It was also almost 60 degrees on Saturday too so we played outside some.  Jackson was tired from playing fetch!


Lunch was pretty awesome too.  We enjoyed tuna melts with salad.  I topped mine with a mini baby bell cheese cut in half and broiled to deliciousness.

Salad topped with Roasted Chickpeas.


Then I had some of this:


And a little later some Paleo Zucchini Banana Bread which is now gone 😦

For dinner we had Shrimp Tacos topped with an awesome mango avocado salsa.
