Good Morning! Happy Friday!
Tuesday Lily turned 5!! She’s getting so big. I wish she would get better with age, but I guess that’s just not in the cards for me. Oh well, I still love her even though she is absolutely insane!
Yes, she is seriously crazy. Ask anyone!
After crossfit I went to Petsmart to get her a birthday present. I figured a huge bone would be just fine. It was very messy so she had to chew on it outside and she stayed out there for a couple hours, my plan worked perfectly 🙂 She also got a new pink collar (shes wearing it in the first picture), so girly.
Jackson also played outside with his brother who lives next door. They are just the cutest.
Crossfit was a rough one on Tuesday. We had to carry dumbbells full of weight around the building twice followed by Bottom’s up Push press. A bottom up Push Press is basically just a push press holding the kettle bell upside down, which takes more balance than normal.
We had to do 5 with each arm. My shoulders were on FIRE by the time I was done and my back was so sore from carrying that dumb thing around so much! I think my spine is permanently bruised. The crossfit coach says you never know when you are going to have to carry heavy (excuse my language) shit around.. I guess that’s true and I’ll be prepared!
The prescribed weight for women was 105 and 35 but I only used 85 lbs and a 15 lb kettlebell, and thank God because I was dying.
I finished with 3 full rounds plus 15 meters of another barbell carry.
Since I decided to change up my workout routine a little bit I thought I would share what I did the rest of the week:
- Monday- Crossfit
- Tuesday- Crossfit
- Wednesday- OFF
- Thursday- OFF
- Friday- Maybe do my own workout?
- Saturday- Crossfit
- Sunday- Run
I made a huge salad with grape tomatoes, cucumbers, a tiny bit of feta cheese, pine nuts, a hard boiled egg, 1/2 garlic and asiago chicken sausage, 1/4 avocado, and raisins. I also made Eric one. He loves my salads, and to be honest they are the bomb!
I snacked on a few almonds too.
After lunch I did some running around with my momma which give me a huge craving for ice cream! I made a stop at good ole McD’s for a vanilla cone. Eric had an Oreo McFlurry. 2 great choices if you ask me!
Dinner came pretty early since that ice cream cone plus a few carrots were my only snacks. I made a Laura’s lean burger with sauteed asparagus and watermelon. Fantastic dinner.
Oh, of course ketchup for my burger. It just wouldn’t be the same without it!
After dinner I made these amazing 3 Ingredient Healthy Macademia Nut Cookies: (that you may have seen on instagram) Recipe Adapted From Tina at CarrotsNCake. I think I love Nikki’s Coconut butter just as much as Tina does!
I used almonds instead of walnuts and a different flavor of coconut butter:
- 1/2 cup Macadamia Nut Cookie Coconut Butter
- 1/2 cup pitted dates
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate almonds
They did turn out incredible!
Try this cookie please! Have a good weekend everyone!
PS. If you love cookies, check out these paleo chocolate chip cookies...I plan on trying them soon 🙂
