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:
10 pull ups
20 pull ups
30 pull ups
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!
