It’s been fun to share what I eat. I don’t know why. Some people are judgmental. Some people enjoy it. Either way, I share so people know how I keep a healthy diet on a regular basis. I’m guessing people will freak out about my lack of greens today, but just hush now my child. Please and thank you.
So the other day, I started my morning off early, coaching the 6am and 7am classes. Whenever I work those morning shifts, I always wake up about an hour before so I can have my 4 sips of coffee with heavy cream and a couple drops of stevia. Then I sit on the toilet (lid closed you sicko) and think about putting on make up. Moving too quickly that early doesn’t work well for me, so I move nice and slow while I take my 4 sips of coffee. I always pack my coffee with me in hopes of drinking more, but I never do. Then I leave my coffee mug there and have to dump it out the next day. Gross. Heavy cream is gross the next day.
Once I got to the gym, I was in full hyper mode. I put on sweet jams, like this one (that song puts me in a good mood every time), and tried my hardest to make people smile and laugh. It works about 12% of the time. Mostly with the same people. I like those people the most. After coaching the 6am class, I had about 3 minutes to have a couple spoonfuls of my overnight chia pudding. Then back to coaching.
After the 7am class, I hung out with some cool people from the gym and watched them lift before I headed to the bank to write my deposit for my new apartment. WOOT WOOT. So excited for this new place, mostly because the kitchen is AMAZING. Seriously wonderful. After I deposited the check, I screamed a little (no seriously, I did) then headed to a restaurant near me called Wild Eggs for a celebratory breakfast. I created my own omelet with sausage, mushrooms, spinach and goat cheese. The omelet was HUGE and came along side potatoes and gluten free bread. I almost finished omelet, but not quite. Then ate a few of the potatoes and had a couple bites of the gluten free bread with some butter. I know, I know. I’m going to get hell for this breakfast, but it was the perfect ending to a wonderful morning. NEW KITCHEN AHHHH!
Once I got home, it was time to create some food. On the agenda that day, dark chocolate raspberry chia banana bread. I had tried to make it over the weekend, and it turned into banana bubble gum. Not my favorite recipe, but definitely went in my archives of ‘oops’ recipes. Can’t wait to share all of those with you someday. Anywho, after I made it, I had a piece. Can’t plug a recipe unless I try it, right?? Right.
Oh, I definitely licked the spoon a few times while I made that recipe. Let’s be real here.
Then I cleaned out the refrigerator. That sucked.
Then, since I had been pretty much only emailing a landlord all weekend long, I got back to emails most of the afternoon. Then I finished writing up the recipe and writing my blog post for the next day. It’s seriously crazy how much time emailing takes. My goal for the new year is to stay on top of my emails. But what do you do when you answer a ton of emails, think you’re done, and have responses back from all of them 10 minutes later, in turn pushing the ones you need to respond to back to the bottom?? It’s madness I tell you!! I wish there was an invention through gmail that put those new emails in a separate file…or has that already been invented and I’m too dumb to know? Hmmmm. I’m not sure if I want to know the answer to that.
Then I ran some errands out in downtown. While I was out, I suddenly realized I was starving. Probably because it was 4:00pm and I hadn’t eaten lunch. Oopsies. So I stopped at some italian pizza place and grabbed a salad. It wasn’t very good, so that’s why I’m not giving you the name. But I ordered a salad with chicken, bacon, gorgonzola cheese, sundried tomatoes, and artichoke hearts. Put some balsamic vinegar on top. How can you mess that up? No clue. But it kinda sucked. I ate as much chicken as I could before moving on.
I got to the gym for the 5:30 workout. The workout at CrossFit Broadway that night included:
Back Squats: 6 x 5, All sets at 80% of 1 Rep Max –I used 115# (this is not my 80% but I was feeling like gossiping and d*cking around more than squatting)
Max Strict Pull Ups / Ring Rows Between Sets
9 min AMRAP Of:
15 Power Cleans (115#/75#)
10 Burpees Over Bar (side on)
I did prescribed and got 5 rounds plus 7 reps.
After the workout, I headed off to ladies night. The Bachelor means ladies night. So we eat, drink, and do what every woman likes to do…make fun of women that seem crazy on tv. Even though we know full well that we have done some crazy sh*t in our day. We love to judge others and forget about our own imperfections for an hour or so. But the Bachelor is boring this year. I don’t understand all this ‘omg Juan Pablo is so hot’ shenanigans. Because well, he’s not. That’s my opinion, but you know it’s always right. Anywho, my girlfriend made my 5 Ingredient Spaghetti Pizza Pie for our ladies night. So I ate that along with some corn chips and salsa.
After I watched girls screaming and telling Juan Pablo they hope he dies, I went home and got myself some chocolate. A girlfriend from the gym brought me some chocolate called Ritual Chocolate, that I had never tried before, and I LOVED it.
