– well thank the good Lord it’s Thursday
yesterday – aka wednesday – was a dooooozE.
One would think that on one's rest day it would be a nice and relaxing morning - eh?
I was already mildly 'depressed' that my rest day happened to fall on a killer WOD - but after reruns of the Kardashians (am I the only one who loves Scott...?) and my chest and quads burning from previous workouts -I knew I wouldn't be able to deadlift a newspaper let alone a barbell
I wanted - key word - wanted - to get up a little earlier and do some foam rolling and quick yoga moves/stretching but when I woke up in a tizzy (forgetting to set my alarm clock for AM - damn you Julie.) I blasted into the shower
....not before updating my iPhone software. #priorities.
coffee+ghee+coconut oil. YUM.
I would be a liar if I said I didn't miss my stevia.
3. Starting my car way before I have to get to the train station
4. Proper water consumption before starting the day
5. Brain has time to function.
The above stood true when I found myself speeding BACK home - dehydrated in mismatched clothing - racing through the front door to grab my phone - screaming up the stairs at Deej "I need a ride to the train station - I forgot my phone -
I'm gonna miss my TRAIN!!!"
Now if that's not an alarm clock I don't know what is.
To say the least I got a nice sprint workout in when I raced up the train platform stairs to slide - literally slide- into the closing doors
...good thing I was traveling in uggs.
breakfast and coffee at the office never tasted so good.
now about that sugar detox.
I've been 3 days stevia free
I haven't eaten grains/legumes in over a month so that's not really the struggle for me
I have eaten rice cakes the last two days but I love them and they're not sugary so it's fine - or is it? I don't care about that - for me it's just going stevia-free for 21 days and seeing how I feel after it
Day 1: sad my coffee was boring but I managed to get through
Day 2: still sad about my boring coffee - even more sad when I wanted mid-afternoon hot chocolate and I had a headache
Day 3: bullet proofed my coffee - ate lots of healthy fats - this could be easy
....until I realized that my sugar detox is interfering with Valentines day.
heart shaped green apples anyone?
TODAY on the other hand was not wednesday – it was in fact THURSDAY.
today i RX-ed my workout – 65lbs with sumo deadlift high pulls & got in 8 rounds with 8 SDHP
i was pretty happy with that!
some as-of-late eats
roasted broccoli, ground beef, hidden spaghetti squash & my favorite spicy marinara
tuna mixed with avocado, lemon juice, dijon mustard & olive oil with bacon on a salad
fried eggs. spaghetti squash & pumpkin sliders with roasted kale & an americano – obvi stevia free.
speaking of food – this chick is HUNGRY. time for dinner!
love to love you.
