Hot banana balls, my readers are amazing!
... seriously? I am at a loss for words. I don't know how my wee little blog managed to garner so many amazing readers. Your words after yesterday's post meant the world to me. I even wrote a few of them down and put them on my fridge.
That you all didn't desert me or call me a Kardashian-drama queen and purge my blog forever from your Readers, means a lot. :) I feel like we could all sit around a camp fire and sing kum ba yah and braid each others hair. I like where this blog relationship is going ...
Thank you :)

In an effort to look on the bright side, that's what I'm dedicating this post to: the bright side!
While I really miss these amazing people and everything at back at Fort Hood, if I don't stop looking back, I'm going to miss everything in the present.
Today started out a little rocky. I was in tears before walking into the gym, but I did make it into the gym, puffy-eyed and looking a mess. I don't think anyone even noticed though, with this sinus infection my eyes are pretty puffy, and well, I'm always just looking a mess anyways.
For the strength bit of class, we worked up to a heavy power snatch double, I hit 105. I'll take it. I've done a full snatch double at 110, so not sure what was up with today.
I did really start to feel the power of that triple extension, my muscles finally starting to store these complicated movements into their memory ...
Tall socks are mandatory on bar work days.
5 rounds of
15 unbroken kettlebell swings, heaviest weight possible (44#)
10 push ups unbroken (strict)
2:00 minutes airdyne for max calories/400m run/500m row
3:00 rest between rounds
(shoot for 2:30-3:30 minute rounds)
I Rx'ed this workout, and it had me feeling pretty pukie every round. That Airdyne is a beast. Do not let this innocent looking machine fool you.
I killed 40 calories in 2:00 the first round, then 38 cals, 36 cals, 34 cals and 35 cals on the 5th and final round.
Total time: 26:53
An interesting workout. Those 3:00 rests went by crazy fast. It was a pretty full class and it was great to just sweat it out communally.

After work, I treated myself.
1/2 an ounce of coffee custard from Ritas. :) I spotted this place as I was leaving Trader Joes, and the outside just looked so cute.
Ice. Custard. Happiness.
Let me tell you, custard blows the socks off of any ice cream or gelato I have ever had! I definitely left feeling the happiness in my tummy.
It's always nice to come home to a package waiting for you.
No, not that kind of package
this kind of package.
Between the custard and the clothes, I have to say it was a happy ending to my day.
And these coconut flour zucchini pancakes weren't bad either. ;)
