Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a fantastic long weekend. I know I did! I have lots of food pictures to share, as well as a couple of

workouts to discuss.


Saturday: Crossfit-the WOD was killer: 20 minute AMRAP starting with a 1 mile run and then as many rounds of possible of the remaining

time of 1 rope climb, 5 push presses, and 10 over the bar burpees. I hate burpees. The run part felt great though. I came in around 8:20

and it wasn’t a push effort so that’s good.

Sunday: My last “long” run. I did 6 miles by the bay. I got really frustrated by the gusting winds, but got it done.



Monday: Crossfit Labor Day workout. It was “bring your friends and family” day so I brought my sister and her boyfriend.

She had shoulder surgery at the beginning of the summer and hasn’t exercised much since then, and I feel bad because she couldn’t

walk the rest of the day…The workout was a partner workout of the following:

100 squats

10 pull ups

75 squats

20 pull ups

50 squats

30 pull ups

25 squats

40 pull ups

My sister and her boyfriend were a team, and since she has a bad shoulder, he had to do all the pull ups. I ended up helping out with a few

because that was brutal!

Now, onto the food! I love having access to a full kitchen and CA produce. My gosh.

Another wrap with humus and veggies:



A quesadilla/wrap with cheddar and mozzarella, half an avocado, tomato, and baby kale sautéed in garlic. Plus a side of broccoli.







A delicious heirloom tomato, basil, fresh mozzarella, and avocado salad, topped with olive oil and sea salt.



A simple breakfast of eggs with seasoning and a farmer’s market peach. DC peaches are laughable in comparison to CA peaches.



A salad with chicken, goat cheese, peaches, basil, and balsamic.



And then, Greek food. Every year a Greek church in my hometown hosts a Greek festival over Labor Day Weekend.

We always go for the delicious food.

For my main meal, I had a greek salad, delicious rice pilaf made with chicken broth, lemon, and butter, and chicken that was insanely hard to cut

with plasticware. On the side, I had Spanikopita, a Greek pastry made with phyllo dough, spinach, and cheese.



And of course there was dessert. They have these delicious doughnut-like balls. Loukamades? I think I totally butchered that spelling. They’re

basically doughnut holes covered in honey (But much lighter and fluffier than doughnut holes) and served hot. Normally they are covered with nuts,

but I was able to get them without! So delicious.



That’s all I have today-I hope everyone else ate well this past weekend!

    Umm whatever those doughnut hole things are I want some now. I’m a doughnut freak haha. My Mom had some peaches at home so I was eating peaches and ice cream all weekend. They’re so good!
