Tomorrow? Yes, we're signed up for the 31 Heroes WOD at CrossFit Midtown. Excited and a little nervous!
This morning I was a motivated little mamma, I
I am convinced that before the year is over, I will do some kind of race on my road bike. Or at least ride it to the park or something. I could never use it in Texas because Killeen was not bike friendly, but Decatur and Atlanta in general? Everyone is a cyclist or a runner, it's so awesome. I was THE ONLY PERSON in the class this morning without real cycling shoes. Who is the newb now?
And, in an effort to perfect the butterfly pullups and cycle 20+ together, I ripped my palms something harsh this morning. I did not expect it. When I came down off the bar I was like, "Oh, damn." My hands are just one giant callus, I have no sensation. Now that's hawt.
Why does my arm look all weird orange? Ooompa loompa, doopa dee doop ...
Next time I will tape. Perhaps I should invest in some gymnastics grips.
A reader asked what supplements I take. This is it. I also drink a whey protein shake after the WOD's most days, I like Optimum Nutrition, and I also take powdered BCAA's, which I throw in the shaker. There are so many great brands out there, but this is what I find to be the most cost-effective. If you can afford it, check out Stronger, Faster, Healthier. I love their fish oil. I am dying to try Pure Pharma products. If anyone wants to offer me a deal, hook a girl up!
So, in an effort to get back into my routine, I did Spin early this morning, messed up my hands (wasn't that always happening at Hood?), and came home and made an awesome breakfast with my favorite Atkins All-Purpose Baking Mix. No waffles this morning ... instead Protein Pancakes!
Topped with crunchy Sunbutter, berries and toasted walnuts.
I made a big batch and threw the rest in the freezer to enjoy over the weekend. A serving is four small pancakes, and they pack a whopping 20g of protein, less than 1 g of sugar, 6 grams of fiber, and just 6 carbs all for 200 calories.
Bring on the protein!
"Stop taking photos of yourself and take me for a walk, dammit."
Ohhh, and what could the Husband be up to you ask? The casa is coming along!
Join me in the Weighted Sit Up Challenge through August 16!
Have a good weekend and take a moment tomorrow to remember the 31 heroes.
