Good Morning! Happy Friday
Wow that’s a long title….
Yesterday I had a Quick protein shake with a scoop of almond butter for breakfast before running to take Jackson to get neutered. Poor guy! It had to be done though. More on that in a minute though. Let’s talk about Crossfit!
After I dropped Jackson off at the vet I went and made him a doggie name tag before heading to crossfit.
Today was an “off” day so I decided to work on a few things that I struggle with:
I can do toes to bar but I cant string them together very well. I’m also trying to work on my “clean” form. I took it easy at crossfit today because yesterdays workout was a killer. I called it “Killer”: seemed appropriate.
I finished in 46:19 which I was okay with I guess. I could have done better though.
250 double unders are very hard, especially at the end of a workout, so we could scale and do single unders but we had to add 25 tuck jumps. My legs were jello after and my biceps are still sore!
After crossfit Eric and I had a day/lunch date. We went to my favorite place… you know it, Bellevue Bistro! I finally got him to go with me and he loved it!
I got the Mediterranean Bake with sweet potatoes and he got the goetta grilled cheese! Goetta is the bomb!
mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, spinach, basil, feta & mozzarella on top of potatoes with 2 fried eggs.
We ran some errands and headed home to wait for the call that Jackson was ready to be picked up.
So I decided to go on a run with me friend Jen yesterday afternoon and I figured we would “PLAY IT BE EAR” since I had a busy afternoon!
For the Longest time I thought the saying “Play it by ear” was being said “play it by year” and one time I text it wrong to my husband and of course he had to correct me. Now I always pay close attention when people say this.
Anyhoo, Jen and myself are trying to get back into running so we did a short 2 miles with some running/walking. I suggest this type of workout if you are a beginner runner or trying to get back into running like we are!
This was a good/steady workout. When I was finished I went and picked Jax up from the vet. Poor guy, he was so exhausted!
I put Jackson’s name tag on him when we got home. He is now officially Jackson 🙂
And a big thanks to Giselle for having an awesome giveaway. I got my protein in the mail the other day! I can’t wait to try it!
This is all natural, only sweetened with stevia, so I am excited to try it!
Dinner: BBQ Apple Chicken Adapted from Sarahfit.com
I’ve made these with turkey burgers which is what the original recipe uses but I thought I would try chicken and I loved it. I didn’t have any mini babybell’s on hand so I used thin swiss cheese and it was amazing! These thin slices only have 40 calories.
We also had side summer salad’s and broccoli.
Dessert: Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies– Recipes from Health.com
I had all these bananas that were about to go bad….I couldn’t waste them! So I made a smoothie for the morning and made these awesome cookies!!
Makes 8 BIG cookies.
Any fun weekend Derby Plans?
What do you like to make with those browning bananas?
