Happy weekend! Well, my weekend started yesterday, as we had a snow day from work! Thank goodness for near blizzards!
Don’t get too jealous, because I was still awake at 5. By the time I received the call, I had already run 2 miles and walked 1, showered, and done my make-up and straightened my hair. Ugh. No sleeping in for this chickpea.
I did retreat to the couch with my little men and watched the news and Kelly and Michael for a bit.
Enjoyed a breakfast bowl of shredded chicken, salsa, sweet potaters and broccoli while watching CSI, and then reading for a bit post CSI.
Around 11:45 I headed out to CrossFit with some of my favorite peeps.
We worked on our snatch for a bit before heading into our WOD, “Diane.” Coach Mat encouraged us to start 2014 pushing ourselves and instead of using a “comfortable” weight, to go beyond our comfort zone. Being comfortable won’t make us stronger or get better!
I deadlifted 115#, which was definitely a challenge, even though my one rep max was 165# (that means pounds).
The rest of the afternoon I spent prepping food for the week and making PaleOMG’s Bacon Meatballs for our CrossFit Seminar today. Coach Mat’s actual nutrition and personal CrossFit coach is leading us through a 5 hour seminar on calculating our macros, how foods affect our bodies, choosing the right foods for our goals, etc. Basically it will be awesome!
We have a few hours rest before we regroup at a restaurant/bar for our holiday party. On Monday we start our Paleo challenge, so Mat said he’s making sure to order the crappiest food for us to enjoy one last hoorah before we get strict!
And another piece of awesomeness is my brother’s face. Our Dad, who has had a mustache for probably 35+ years, shaved it off for the 2nd time in my almost 26 years of existence. We both Facetimed with Dad, and this was Ryan’s reaction.
Omg. A mustache can seriously change a man! The rest of my night was spent with my best friend Lindsay, where we had some girl talk (about boys of course), and watched Must Love Dogs, our favorite movie ever. We <3 John Cusack! 🙂
Hope you have a great weekend! I’ll check back in on Monday with fun pictures from the weekend!
Anything fun planned for you guys?!
