Good evening/good morning (depending on when you’re reading).
Today has been a great day. I hope the same for the rest of you.
As always, let’s start with breakfast.
Greek yogurt + museli + strawberries & blueberries + chia seeds + PB2 + Love Grown granola + unsweetened almondmilk & coffee
Breakfast favorite is back again!
So, instead of guesstimating all of the measurements in my breakfast this morning, I took the time to measure everything out and enter them into MyPlate. The grand caloric total ended up being approximately 390 kcals. Perfect number forÂ me.Â Perfect number for you? Who knows.
Spring mix + cucumber + grape toms + red onion + feta cheese + roasted butternut squash + smoked turkey + crumbled sliceÂ EzekielÂ bread + GreekÂ vinaigretteÂ
Again, I took the time to measure everything and track my lunch in MyPlate. Lunch ended up being around 400 calories. Yet again, a number IÂ am satisfied with. Satisfaction also occurring from the delicious salad. 🙂
Sliced apple + raw almond butter
MaraNatha’s raw almond butter is officially my favorite nut butter at this point in my relationship with nut butters. Seriously stuff is goooooood.
However, when I checked the ingredient list I was a bit disappointed. This jar coming in at around ten bucks a pop contains only oneÂ ingredient. Alright so, the problem?
I CAN MAKE IT MYSELF and spend ten dollars on something else. Like organic produce because that shiz is pricey, too. Recipe coming soon…
Side note: I had a dried date as I was headed out the door to crossfit. So good yet so ugly… Poor little dates.
Warm-up 400 m run 10 push-ups 20 pass throughs (x2) WOD EMOM 20: 5 hang snatches @ 35 lbs 15 box jumps (24"/20") Skill Practice kipping
Oh, crossfit. How I love you.
Alright, but really. I do. Sorry.
Today was the first time I did a hang snatch hence the light weight load. During the WOD, one of the other girls was snatching 65 lbs and boy was she fighting to bang ’em out but with everyone cheering her on she finished Rx. That’s the kind of stuff that motivates me to go past my comfort zone and make improvements.
I thought this picture was kinda cool. Maybe?
Coconut water + chocolate whey protein + water
Ze perfect recovery drink in thy own opinion. ‘Cause it tastes so darn good as it repairs my worn out muscles. 😉

Haha, I should definitely start making this a regular thing on the blog. Ah, a new category!
Is that restaurant quality or what?! Restaurant quality for sure. Recipe quality also!
