Happy Friday! Hooray for the weekend!
Originally, the boyfriend and I had made plans to go to a Falcons game in Atlanta on Sunday (I’ve never been to an NFL game so I was super pumped to get to go.) but some things came up in Tuscaloosa that I need to be here for. So looks like my weekend is going to consist of some long meetings, Alpha Gam priorities, Meag’s birthday (!!!), and a few other tasks.
But hey! It’s still the weekend so I’m not complaining. Besides, we can always make up for Sunday and see the Falcons play in New Orleans. 😉
The cousin has been staying with me since Monday and had to hit the road a few hours ago. Always happy to have him around.
He halfway woke up after I snapped this picture. Oops. 😕
Ok. Let’s get to yesterday’s eats.
This breakfast has become a favorite as of late. Banana Bread Oatmeal with chia seeds and a spoonful of white chocolate peanut butter.
Yes, that’s right. I saidÂ white chocolate peanut butter.
Once breakfast digested I made my way to CrossFit for a killer workout.
- 50 squats
- 50 sit ups
- 50 push ups
- 50 double unders
AMRAP 10 minutes
- 10 wall balls 20/14
- 10 kettlebell swings 70/53
If the warm up wasn’t enough the WOD definitely was. The ones that look like they might be easy are always the ones that really kick your butt! But in a totally good way. I love how sore I am today after this workout. I did 100 singles instead of 50 double unders (still working on those), and used the 10 lbs wall ball and 26 lbs kettlebell. Slowly but surely working my way up.
When I got back from CrossFit I had a recovery shake made up of Earthfare’s Show Me the Whey chocolate protein powder and water.
I shook that dang mixer bottle till both arms were sore trying to mix up that little bit of protein powder. The protein powder ended up winning that battle.
After catching up on blog reading I got the urge to make my bed–which isn’t surprising since I’m kind of a clean freak–and couldn’t help but admire my new pillows. 😀
*Fast forward to lunch.*
Chili isÂ by farÂ way better eaten as leftovers. All the flavors get the chance to marry and it is just bomb.
A little cornbread, shredded cheese, and plain Chobani and viola! Awesome lunch.
AuBrey had class yesterday morning and couldn’t make it to CrossFit with me so we agreed to run later in the afternoon. We kept the pace easy and I ended up running 4 miles. It felt great and I’m glad to announce I have sore calves today. Yay!
No pictures from our run. It was gloomy yesterday and still is today. Rain rain go away!Â Seriously though. 🙁
Since I already sweat like a beast yesterday’s humid weather was not in my favor so I immediately showered up after running and got to work on an afternoon snack.Â
Sliced pear and detoxing herb tea.
It didn’t take long for me to finish off my snack before heading to the Alpha Gam house to pick up some t shirts. Because, ya know, I don’t have enough of those already. 😉
By the time I got back from the house it was time to get started making dinner. Whadda ya know?
Last night’s dinner was a good one. Of course everything is good when a sweet potato and ketchup is involved.
To accompany my sweet potato wedges I had a salad made up of spring mix, red onion, canned white chicken, and Newman’s Own Lite Balsamic Vinaigrette.
Sliced avocado would have really made this salad out of this world. Unfortunately, my avocados weren’t completely ripe last night but I think they will be for tonight. Which works out perfectly! I’m thinking a girls night involving movies and some chips and guacamole. 🙂
Well, I’m off to run a few errands before the night festivities begin. Have a good weekend y’all!
