Back to Crossfit after hellish 2 weeks

I just took a look at the WOD for Tuesday’s 7:30pm.  I love that they have 7:30pm.  It’s less intimidating, easier to get off campus, and I don’t mind getting home at 9pm.

When I first look at a WOD, I visualize what is achievable, what is going to be difficult and what is going to be “WTF, hope no one is watching.”.

I’m glad Brandon told me to start my blog and start measuring results.  I’m glad I bribed Jeff into finally putting together my complicated pull-up bar and attaching it my door frame (he promised this weekend). I’m ecstatic about meeting other women like me wanting to eat healthier and sharing their ideas, recipes, ups/downs.

Fitness / Performance:
MAP Training

200m Run — can do this.
5 Power Cleans (heavy) — gotta remember what this is.
15 Abmat sit-ups (cup toe box) — can do this.

Rest 5

Row 250m — can do this.
8 T2B — must get stronger to do this successfully
25 Double Unders– must get technique down

Rest 5

15 No Push Burpee Box Jump Over (24/20) — wait. what?
10 Push-ups — must get stronger to do this successfully

I will report back after tonight.

Savory BLT Breakfast


I made this breakfast for myself and my husband last weekend. It was a great alternative to the basic bacon and egg breakfast that we often eat. It was savory and hearty with lots of flavor. Here’s what you’ll need for it:


6 slices of bacon

2 cups of baby spinach

1/2 cup of cherry tomatoes, halved

4 large eggs

1 avocado, sliced


1. Heat a large skillet and add the bacon. Set aside a couple of tablespoons of the oil from the pan to use to fry the eggs.

2. Fry the eggs in a separate pan using the oil from the cooked bacon.

3. Meanwhile, add the spinach and tomatoes to the bacon and cook for a few minutes until spinach is wilted.

4. Plate the eggs. Top with the bacon, spinach, tomatoes and avocado slices.

5. Enjoy!

I told you I was going to be a zucchini expert by the end of the week.  Well, I have made another 2 loaves of zucchini bread.  I made this zucchini and squash casserole, and I will post the zucchini lasagna I made soon! This casserole was an Emeril recipe that I doctored up Paleo style.  Didn’t take much substituting other than a small bit of cream and buttered bread crumbs on top.  I used a ton of zucchini and squash up which was a must because I pick up again tomorrow and they are starting to fly off my own zucchini plant!  Has anyone else heard that Emeril has gone paleo?  I wonder how that’s gonna work out….
