Crossfit the third

I started the day off right with a home brewed coffee and English muffin and peanut butter:

I went grocery shopping today! I got some great healthy foods to add to the rotation. I got home and promptly made a salami sandwich and a side salad:

After a few errands and getting my room more set up, I broke into a great snack:

I love Nutella with all of my heart. I don’t buy it often because I love it so much. 🙂

I then tried to demonstrate how I eat this creation, which came out kind of inappropriately. And I shall share it with you, because I’m classy like that:

Hahahahah. I’m so awesome. Anyways.

Then I made a yummy bean salad for a potluck tonight. It’s very simple – black beans, corn, red pepper, orange pepper, green onions, lime juice, and pineapple juice. It was a hit!

So then I went to Crossfit. This was my third intro session. We practiced all types of dips, kettlebell swings, box jumps (I mastered the 14″ one but not the 20″, I was scurred). Then we did half of “Cindy” – as many rounds of 5 pullups, 10 pushups, and 15 sqats as possible in 10 minutes (the full workout is 20 minutes). My modifications were: green rubber band on the pullups, knee pushups. I did 5 rounds + 5 pullups into the 6th round. I’ve got some rugburns on my poor knees — and not from a fun activity! (Oh man, I am so raunchy tonight!) Guess I’ll just have to get stronger and be able to do full pushups! Anyways, great workout.

Afterwards we did a running clinic and I got a t-shirt from the gym:

And my eats at the potluck. Salad:

Chicken veggie soup on top of some quinoa, with a sushi on the side (and I had about 4 total of those sushis, they were YUM).

And dessert — two chocolate truffles. Here’s one in my hand:

I also just had a cup of decaf before bed. Night!

    Hey girl – I’m going to have to break down and buy some Nutella. Can you believe I have never had it? A co-worker was telling me about this week and was shocked I had never had any! She told me about all the wonderful creations I can make with it! Sounds heavenly!!

      You should! It’s soooo delicious. About the same nutritional stats as peanut butter, as it’s hazelnut butter plus cocoa. It’s divine.

    I never think to buy Nutella. Hmm.

    Also, I don’t think I’ve ever had spam in anything. I wonder if I’d like it.

    And the crossfit workout sounds hardcore. You’re very brave to be trying it!
