This morning I got up for CrossFit and started to get ready. But I decided that I just didn't want to go and crawled back into bed. But then I laid there feeling guilty and hating myself. So I got up and hurried to get ready but when I was walking out the door, I saw that it was 6:15am. Class starts at 6:00am and is 15 minutes away. Sigh. So I crawled back into bed so annoyed with myself.
Then I woke up. Yep, it was all a very realistic dream. I didn't know whether I was relieved that I could go to CrossFit or disappointed that I had to get up and go. Ha!
Monday is my weigh in day. After a week of super compliance with paleo (only non-compliant thing was the wine on Monday), I gained 1.8 pounds. Sigh. I shall forge ahead. I promised myself 30 days no matter what, so I shall continue and not dwell on it. I do feel good so it is what it is.
CrossFit was actually pretty great and intense today. After warming up:
A. 10:00 OTM (on the minute) 2 Power Cleans at 80% of my one rep max. We just found our one rep max last week which was 125# for me, so I used 100#. It was heavy but doable and got easier the more I warmed up.
B. 5:00 OTM 1 Power Clean & Jerk at 85% of my one rep max. So I added 5# to be at 105#. This was tougher. Even though you only did each move once, jerking it up over my head was really hard. I think I was really doing more of a push press, but I got it up there.
C. As if that wasn't enough, we finished with 10:00 of burpees. We did get to pause from the burpees every 1:30 to do 30 double unders or in my case, lateral hops (jumping side to side). So, I would break from burpees, by jumping up and down. Yeesh. It was a long 10 minutes.
But I did it!
Today's meal plan:
Breakfast: Black Coffee. Leftover frittata. I made a big oven baked frittata over the weekend with sausage, kale and parsley. It is pretty good although I think I cooked it a scosh to long. I topped it wish some salsa.
Lunch: Paleo Shepherd's Pie. I made this weekend and it is delicious! It is ground beef and chorizo combined with some onion, adobo sauce and some spices to make a meatloaf. Then I topped it with a sweet potato and cauliflower puree. Yum!
Snack: Turkey breast and a boiled egg.
Dinner: Leftover chicken and veggies. My chicken is from last weekend so I hope it is still good!
Snack: If I need it I can have a serving of the homemade honey roasted pecans I made over the weekend. I'm not a huge fan of honey, so there is no danger that I will OD on them.
