Blogging the Menu: Day 2

Hello again!  This morning I got up at 4:20am so I could go have my ass handed to me at CrossFit.  We did a hero WOD called "Adrian".  It involved somersaults (which I suck at), wall climbs (which I have never done before but guess what, I suck at), toes to bar (which I used to be able to do, but for some reason can't lately), and box jumps at 30" (I did 20" because overly tall slightly tubby white girls can't jump).  It took me 23:50.  On paper it looked kind of fun, in practice it was kind of ouchy. 

This was not enough food prior to that WOD
Banana has always been my pre-workout go-to food. 
After a while they get a little sickening.  Might be time to switch to oranges.
I discovered the hard way that I can't eat grapes pre-workout.

Afterwards I came home and made myself some real breakfast.  No avocado this morning. Have you ever noticed that avocados are perfectly ripe for about 28 seconds?  And it's never when you want to eat them.  Hardasrocks hardasrocks hardasrocks perfectcreamyawesomeness brownmush

Ye olde standby.  Clucks and pork.

I could eat bacon every day.  Oh wait.  I do.  And yet my LDL cholesterol is 92.  Go figure.

These carrots were awesome.  Crunchy and sweet. 
I hate it when a bitter carrot ruins my morning, don't you?

I was going to post a picture I took of myself with a carrot moustache.  Then I looked at the photo and not only did my nose look huge but also oddly phallic (I hope due to the lighting, otherwise I've been walking around with genitalia on my face), and I'm not that confident a person.

I had a hankering for a buffalo chicken salad.  I love Frank's Red Hot. 
Seriously, I could drink that shit.

After lunch we went for a walk.  It was not that cold, but holy jeebus did we run into wind.  Every time we go walking we discuss walking the loop in the other direction because of the wind.  We never actually do it, but we discuss it!

Who's a cute little Clementine? 

 I ended up in the office until just after 5pm waiting for a phone call that never came.  By the time I got home I was ravenous.  I had planned to have scallops and sautéed zucchini, but I opted for some schmancy spiral cut zoodles with a little toasted almond meal and red pepper flake (and garlic, duh) for my scallops to rest upon.  This is 4 small zucchinis worth and I ATE IT AAAAAALLLLLLL!!

This was sooooo worth every moment it took to prep and cook it. 
Kombucha again as beverage.  A little fizzy, a little fruity, and ever so slightly alcoholic.

I'm not normally one for a "dessert".  I'm more of an "eat a whole sleeve of Oreos while watching The Biggest Loser" kind of girl.  That said, this mousse is really delicious and the fact that the only sweet thing in it is a green tipped banana is kind of incredible.  Find it in the 21 Day Sugar Detox Cookbook.  


La la 2 down.  Tomorrow I've got the kids while the husband works, I might brave the on call plus kids plus CrossFit combo, but more likely I'll do my long run (if you can count 4 miles as a long run) on Torvald the Treader and hit the box on Sunday.  Let's see how well I stay on the clean eating train with three little vultures circling...

Happy Friday!

  1. Might I suggest putting about a Tablespoon of butter or coconut oil in y our pre-workout coffee? It provides calories for your workout! It doesn't change the flavor of your coffee much at all. For me, it doesn't upset my stomach during workouts, not even if we have burpees (most everything else disagrees w/ me, burpees or not). I use coconut oil most often (in order to be more "Paleo") but i do enjoy the buttery flavor of butter on occasion (shhhh! don't tell Coach). Just like anything else new you try, give it a go on a rest day to be sure how your system will tolerate it. Ciao!
