You are seriously never going to guess what I did this weekend. I worked out AND I ate a lot of food. So weird. So freaking weird. Oh wait wait, I also danced. And this all occurred in one area, at the Colorado Open. Front Range CrossFit hosts the Colorado Open every year which is a weekend CrossFit competition that helps us little guys have the opportunity to compete since we weren’t fortunate enough to make it to the games. BUT the competition is swarming with some amazing Colorado athletes. And good looking men. Without shirts on. Working out. Yeah, it was a good weekend.

Saturday started off with back squats, pull ups, and running then was finished off with atlas stones and double unders. Can you say legs? Holy balls. All of us were pretty exhausted. Being in the sun and cheering people on all day seems to be exhausting on it’s own, so adding wods to that just spices up everything. I made sure to eat a lot throughout the day. I have gotten really good at eating during competitions. I used to suck at it. I used to be so nervous during competitions that I couldn’t keep anything down, know what I’m sayin, but now I’m quite a good eater. Probably why I am 20lbs heavier this year than I was last year at the Open.  I chowed on some green chile sliders, broccoli, and sweet potatoes. Georgia showed me a frozen sweet potato packaged brand that has the cute little guys already cubed up, ready to be cooked. I cooked up a ton of those guys, making sure they were nice and crispy for Tom per request. They are addicting. I use competition as an excuse to eat far more than I should when it comes to sweet potatoes. It makes me feel better about myself. Stupid. But we finished our Saturday night off with family dinner which included some amazing meat made by Tom. He seriously makes some of the best steak I’ve ever tasted. He’s Brazilian, he better know how to cook meat. And he tans well. Lucky bastard. We dipped our steak in some delicious guac and Rj cooked up some awesome wings and grilled asparagus. Good damn night.

Anyways, the second day was followed by more staring at half naked men while they sweat on the floor….wait wait wait, I mean staring at half naked men while they laid down, in their own sweat, on the floor. Men are so dramatic. Always falling over themselves after a workout as if they were just pummeled with a baseball bat. You weren’t just pummeled with a bat dudes, you just worked out. Stand up. Be proud of what you just did. Ok, that was rude, I know I’m an asshole. You can lie on the floor after every wod if you want, I’ll give you a tissue to wipe your tears. Ok, there I go again being an ass. I’ve cried after workouts. But the only time I ever have emotions is while working out, so I gotta let it out sometimes. Back to the point, we did two more wods and celebrated the night with Little Man Ice Cream. Let’s talk about what I thoroughly enjoyed there…

1. Oatmeal Cookie Ice Cream
2. Honey Gelato
3. Cinnabun Gelato

No, there is no picture to prove how beautiful this bowl of ice cream was. I ate it too quickly and didn’t even care to take a picture of it. I ate this even faster than Tom ate his. Victory. I crushed that ice cream’s butt.

So let’s sum up the weekend. I worked out in front of a lot of people, half naked, awkward as a turtle, watched a ton of hot married dudes sweat a lot (yeah I know, it’s stupid they’re married), overloaded on my lactose via Americanos with heavy cream and extremely heavy ice cream, and danced multiple times to the new song ‘Moves like Jagger’ by Maroon 5 in our LoDo tent. I worked out with AND hung out with some of the most amazing athletes and incredible people in the state of Colorado. And I got to do this all, surrounded by the best support team on the planet, CrossFit LoDo. Sergio, Grayson, Jason, and Brad all competed this weekend and proved to everyone they have the heart for CrossFit. So proud of them and so happy to call them my friends. Amazing weekend. Really amazing.

I'm surrounded by good looking dudes. I.Love.My.Life.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Just have to say, love love love your blog! I can so relate to so much you say, especially about whole jars of almond butter… mmmmmm….

    Anyway! Just wondering how the no fruit challenge is going?? Are you feeling better? Is it helping with the 'need' to eat a whole jar of nut butter?? I'm thinking I'll be more stable (in all ways! haha) if I cut out all fruit other than berries..

    Keep up the great work!
    Amy

  2. I discovered the secret of invisiblity at the CO Open. Be a 42 year old (single!) bald guy in a "Staff" shirt as opposed to one of the 20 – 35 y/o, shirtless, sweaty hot guys (secure enough in my own masculinity to recognize/admit that those guys are hot). I'm hoping I become visible again at the Master's, in which I'll be a sweaty old guy laying on the floor (possibly shirtless but I'm not sure anyone wants to see that) 🙂

    Anyway, you did great at the Open! Be proud, it's ok. For anyone reading this that doesn't know…Juli took second to Jasmine Dever (29th in the 2011 CF Games). F'ing impressive!!

  3. Thank you so much for your support Aimz!! The lack of fruit in my life is going just fine 🙂 it hasnt bothered me much, but I know my friend Georgia has been supplementing the lack of sugar/energy with more fat such as almond butter. I'm still consuming a stupid amount of almond butter, i don't want to talk about.

    I'll be posting my results from not eating fruit and let you know how it feels at the end of the month.
