Happy Hump Day Wednesday: It’s Almost the Weekend again!


Wednesday morning I had to go back to work, boo.  I loved the break!  I was the laziest I have ever been yesterday and it was great.  I was going to take down my Christmas decorations, but that didn’t happen.  Maybe my next off day it will.


For breakfast I made a microwaveable English muffin.  I topped it with laughing cow cinnamon cream cheese spread and eggs (1 egg, 2 egg whites).  Nothing to crazy or out of the box for me!


I also had 1/2 of a grapefruit- metabolism booster!

For my mid morning snack around 10:15 I had my Beverly International cookies n cream protein shake and an apple.

Lunch was leftover  Laura’s lean chili and a salad with tomato, cucumbers, avocado, feta cheese, and orange pepper.


Another snack later on was a handful of mixed nuts- mostly almonds, and some pita chips.

I went to crossfit after work:  This was  my 4th beginner class, and I still get nervous every time!



Clean and Jerk
Box Jumps

8 Minute AMRAP:
3 Clean and Jerks
6 Push-Ups
9 Box Jumps

Let me just say I pretty much suck at pushups  😦

After my workout I wasn’t that hungry but I had shredded BBQ in the crock pot at home (made with Stubbs, no high fructose corn syrup, bbq sauce).  I had a little bit with some orange pepper and cucumber slices with spinach and artichoke humus.  It doesnt really look that pretty but that BBQ was very good!


Then another protein shake before bed.  I swear this stuff is so good!

I was thinking about going to Beefcake and getting some supplements soon… I got their new magazine and all the women in it take supplements like its their life, for example: DENSITY to help lose fat and increase muscle mass, ULTRA 40 for preservation of lean muscle mass, and MUSCLE SYNERGY to help with post workout soreness and help build lean muscle mass.

A little blurry sorry.


My husband went the other day and stocked up and for the new year I was wondering if I should.

The only extra supplements I take right now are multivitamins, vitamin C, Fish Oil, sometimes CLA, and biotin for hair and nails.

I definitely do not want to look like this girl: Her shoulders look very manly 😦

Any thoughts on taking extra supplements?

What kind of supplements do you take?

Happy Weekend!  I hope you all have a good and long one like me!

This morning I work up and had oatmeal for breakfast. I was out of eggs and I really need to go to the grocery store so I can plan my weekly meals.

I drank my pre workout White Flood on the way to the gym.


I went to the gym thinking I was going to work on triceps and I was also going to do a short full body circuit. I had my circuit all written up and ready and when I got there I totally changed my mind!  I still worked on triceps, but I decided to do a burpee challenge too!

burpee challenge

I did a total of 60 burpee’s today. I was going to do a 100 burpee challenge, but I’m sure I will work my way up 🙂 Be looking for it!

After the gym I drank my Beverly International chocolate protein shake with 1/2 almond milk and 1/2 water.

I had a small lunch since I knew we were meeting friends to watch the UK game and I would be eating again in a couple of hours.

So I had a paleo pumpkin walnut muffin with peanut butter. I love these and it’s just a perfect combination.  I also had a handful of cashews.

Keystone is known for their mac n cheese so everyone got it besides me of course.  They have a separate mac n cheese men

u and you can customize it however you want.  Eric got “Nirvana” which had chicken and roasted red peppers, but I did have a few bites.  I got the chicken quesadilla with ranch for dipping!

Lindsey and I decided we were going to be festive and try the fruity beers.  Not a good idea since we only liked two, but we wanted to be adventurous!

I had the “Magic Hat” which was pretty good. It had a spicy taste, but not too spicy.  Then we ordered the banana bread beer which literally tasted like I was drinking banana bread, it was crazy. Too weird for a beer.  And then we tried the ginger beer, which was SUPER strong and gingery.  I only took a few sips.  Lindsey finally got a Raspberry Ale and it was good!  So we like 2 of 4, not too bad I guess.

When I got home I wanted something sweet so I broke into the cookies and after reading a couple other blogs about hot chocolate I decided to make some for myself!

Out with Friends-UK 027

I had two, well actually three cookies, and I only drank half of my hot chocolate… MMMM whip cream!

My husband fell asleep playing X Box- Boy are we getting old!

Off to bed here soon so I can wake up bright and early for CROSSFIT!  Talk about getting old 😉

What is your favorite kind of seasonal beer or Ale?

Anybody have any fun weekend plans?

Any paleo recipes anyone wants to share? I’m always looking for new ones!
