Hi friends. I am blogging after work and my brain is 100% ready for bed, but here we are!
I wanted back it up to share some fun eats lately (specifically Monday+a few from today).
Pre-Workout: The typical Cheerios.
Workout: Crossfit. We did squats for strength. We had to do a max reps at 85% for back squat, and I shocked myself by getting 9 reps. Honestly, any of the last 4 reps I thought I could have failed because they came up SO slowly.
The WOD was exciting because 1. it had been almost a week since I’d done Crossfit due to scheduling issues so I was craving some cardio and 2. I did box jumps for the first time since my Achilles tendonitis flared up. I used a shorter box, but the WOD included 150 wall balls and 150 box jumps. As I guessed, my Achilles was fine jumping up but stepping off was a little bit of a problem. It didn’t bother me too much, but definitely tightened up later in the day.
Breakfast: Loving the smoothie bowls. Yogurt, milk, mixed berries, mango, topped with KIND maple granola and honey.
Because I don’t work Mondays, of course I had to take Chloe for a walk on a beautiful day! It had been I think a week since I’d walked her!
Lunch: We got the most perfect avocado in our CSA box last week (accidentally because I forgot to fill our box, so it filled automatically), so I based my lunch around that. I made an open faced turkey sandwich with spicy mustard and mayo, lettuce, nice cheese, and of course avocado! On the side I had some carrots with cheddar seasoning.
I also had a Zevia Cream Soda. I’m not sure how I feel about these but they’re a good occasional treat. I think the cream soda is one of the best flavors because it plays into the natural flavor of stevia (which I don’t normally like).
Snack: The usual.
Plus a few crackers an hour later, before teaching spin.
I used a playlist that was nearly 2 years old, and it was amazing how different the music was! I think music has changed a lot in the past few years (at least what’s popular); it seems like EDM and drops are much more popular, which I’ve embraced for spin. It was nice to change it up though!
Dinner: My parents came with me to hit up Sweetgreen post-class, and i got the Hummus salad with hummus, falafel, feta, and veggies in a yogurt dressing.
Dessert: We had to stop at the best froyo place on the way home. Obviously. I accidentally got a massive amount, but had no problem polishing it off. Chocolate, birthday cake, and chocolate mint, with chocolate syrup.
Post-dinner: I pulled half a piece of lemon poppyseed bread from the freezer and it was amazing. Again. Obsessed.
I apologize if this post was a little curt. I just had a few bites of non-GF donut and my brain has decided to suddenly be half asleep so thinking isn’t really happening right now!
Have a good one!
