Good Morning!  Happy Friday!

It’s so Awesome to hear bird chirping in the morning isn’t it?  Thank God I think it’s finally Spring, even though it does need to warm up some more!!

This morning I wanted to recap on some good eats I had this week.  It will be short and sweet this morning because I have to get to work!

If you missed my post yesterday about What Crossfit Has Taught Me {So Far} You should really check it out!

Oh and last night, another PR.  I did 4 Kipping Pull Ups!  Yay.

Last Night’s Crossfit Session was kind of Brutal.

This was the Wod:

  • Row 7500 Meters As Fast As Possible:  30  Min. Time Cap

So I did the row for 30 minutes and got 5836 Meters.  I am tall so everyone keeps telling me I should be VERY good at rowing.  I guess I need to get better at at!

After rowing for 30 minutes straight my shoulders were on fire, and my butt was numb… something to look forward to right?

Tonight at Crossfit we are doing the Open 13.5!

Workout 13.5

4 minute AMRAP of:
15 Thrusters (100 / 65 lbs)
15 Chest to bar Pull-ups
*4 minute bonus for every 90 reps (3 rounds) completed.

At our Box you can do RX2 meaning if you have to use a band to do the pull ups, or scale the weight.  I will be doing RX2 because I will have to use a band for the pull ups.

I will let you know how I do!?!

I’ll be back later this weekend!  Have a good Friday!

What was your favorite eat of the week?

So yesterday was another busy work day but I wanted to capture some of my good eats and highlight some awesome crossfit workouts that I did this week!  I’ll start with yesterday.


For Breakfast I had Quaker’s perfect portion cinnamon oats.  PS. Go check out my review on them!

Crossfit on Thursday was weird, but fun, and exhausting all at once.

thurs 314 WOD- zercher

Zercher Squat : I don’t know how they named these people back in the old days!

Instead of using a huge stone, I used a 85# sandbag, which was so heavy!  We had to pick it up and chuck it over a bar!  What a workout that was, just getting up to my chest was a workout!

For Dinner I had Breakfast = Brinner.  I usually make breakfast for dinner when I don’t feel like cooking and eggs are usually my go to meal!


Eggs with 1 wedge laughing cow cheese – turkey bacon – Paleo Pumpkin Banana Muffin

I also had some captain crunch for dessert. No this is not healthy, but this what happens when I have to stock a pantry full of kid’s sugary cereals.  I love this cereal, so I gave in!

Probably the best cereal in the world!

I am pretty sure I am mixing all my days together too, but here is a recap of the food and fitness that happened this week!

Side Note:  All of you crossfiters out there, have you seen the Open Wod 13.2?  I’m actually hoping to do it this weekend!  It looks fun actually, but I am sure it’s deceivingly hard 😉

Here it is:

I am pretty sure that a 75 Push Press for however many rounds I make it, will be SUPER hard!  I am excited to see how many rounds I can get out of it though.

Have a good St. Patty’s Day Weekend Everyone, Make sure you wear your green!
