I feel so pale!! Well, that’s probably because I am. Damn the winter in Colorado. Even if the sun is pretty much always shining, I still am kind of a creepy color. And seeing my pale self working out in a competition this weekend kind of grossed me out. I just want to have a nice bronze going on. Being tan makes you look more buff. I want to be more buff. Therefore better at CrossFit. Yep, being tan makes you stronger. I just know it.

Speaking of buff people, I competed in a little CrossFit competition this weekend at CrossFit Eminence. Lindsey and her husband Kris did a fantastic job with this competition. It ran smoothly, had some awesome wods programmed, and had super cool athletes competing. Great Saturday. But something did suck. Well, it was the usual suckiness of CrossFit events…No.Single.Dudes. What the hell is that about!? There was one guy I found pretty attractive, then I turned around at some point and he was getting a child strapped to his chest. WHATTHEF*CKISTHAT?! Why do all you attractive men have babies?! Ugh.

Anywho, since there was no chance of me hanging out with a single dude, (especially since I smelt like a dump truck after the competition) I just grabbed a guacamole burger with sweet potato tator tots from Jake’s and ate until I literally couldn’t put anymore food or even water in my gut. I usually can’t eat during competitions because I’m so nervous so dinner was balls to the walls. So I had to fast on Sunday to cleanse the gut. I lasted until I had to start making some Super Bowl food to get you guys all ready to go for the big game. We all know I’m sure as hell not watching it. The only reason I knew the Super Bowl was almost here was because of Laura. You can thank her for the fun treats on the way this week. SUPERBOWLFOODYEAH!

I drank 3 coconut waters in 2 days this weekend. I got some sugar bloat going on. SUGARBLOATBABYYEAH!

Wanna know how lucky I am. Just look below.

    Made this last night. I don’t ever buy chicken sausage because I love pork sausage, but I was in the mood for something different and my husband said he wanted something bad and not paleo, so I made this! I think this was good, but I would prefer a more traditional tomato sauce. I used fresh herbs because I just happened to have them. its official, I don’t care for tarragon! Overall, this was a great dish! Next time though I will will make a more traditional italian tomato sauce and add the coconut cream to that. Thanks julie for being so exploratory in the kitchen. P.S. your spaghetti squash bake was to die for!!! I’m still eating it.

    I’ve been making this for a few years. It’s been a staple in my family. Love it! Have you ever tried freezing the finished meal? Not sure how that would turn out after thawing.

      I haven’t, but it should be ok. Spaghetti squash is pretty durable as long as it wasn’t mushy in the first place
