Eating out on Whole30

Oh. My. Gosh. I got my @$$ kicked by Miss Elizabeth this morning. Squat cleans and dips are a dirty dirty combo on a Saturday morning. My triceps feel like noodles and my hips and I’m just waiting for DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) to take over my body. Besides all that, nothing’s better than a morning WOD back at CrossFit Instinct!!

Yesterday, I had the itch to lift some heavy $h!t. Must have been built up stress over my hellacious paper that I was going to turn in. Anyway, after a quick WOD, I attempted to get a PR on jerks; after some warmup lifts, I tried a new weight. Failed the first attempt. Reset. Failed the second attempt. Reset. Failed the third attempt. Ugh! I was close, and thanks to Coach Janelle at Fit Bodies CrossFit, I got a little bit closer.

Since I had class, I had to leave and realized I walked into the classroom (late..oops) with chalk all over my jacket and hands and handed in my paper. I think giving my teacher a huge project was a better feeling than hitting a PR.

I take that back. It would have been great to get it. Oh well, next time!

Last night, I went out to eat for the first time on my Whole30. My whole family was in town to celebrate my sister’s teaching award (she’s the best!) so they respected my wishes and we went somewhere easy to eat clean. Let’s just say Station 220 is DA BOMB. They serve local grown food and were great about respecting my restrictions. Here’s a pic of what I got:

It was awesome. Almost too good to be true! The other stuff on the menu looked amazing too, such as the pomme frites, meatballs, wine, and hummus. But, I just sipped on my water and patiently waited for my steak and veggies. And it was so worth it.

So today’s day 17 and in finally feeling so good. I don’t want to cheat and I love the food I’ve been making. Let’s just hope this lasts two more weeks!

I made it! Double-digits!

It’s the second weekend of my Whole30 and I’m sitting in a car dealership staring at a soda and candy machine. Know what? I don’t even want any of it. Not one craving. My bottle of water is more satisfying than the $1.75 bottle of instant insulin-spiking soda. SCORE.

Something else that helps is the fact that me and the boy did a hero WOD at FitBodies this morning. I don’t know if it was the fact that I felt nauseous on the way back from my 5th round or the throbbing rips in my hands that keeps me going. Or all the above. Doesn’t CrossFit sound sexy?

Speaking of sexy, I’m sporting my LifeAsRX knew socks with capris. Not something you see everyday. I expect a lot of staring again. Just like when I wore my neon green knee socks to the mall last night. I swear I’m not crying for attention- I’m just too lazy to change (ew, makes me sound dirty) and I don’t want my huge box jump scars and basketball scars to open up again. Knee socks=protection. And they keep me extra toasty warm. No goosebumps=happy.

Want to know what’s really annoying? Crowded places with crying screaming babies. Now I’m inside a hair place (not for me). Holy cow. My ears feel like they’re bleeding. The WOD seemed easier than sitting here surrounded by too many people in a small space with little kids running everywhere. Good thing the hair place is in a grocery store. Think I’m gonna go buy some kale. Kale always makes it everything better. I need to stock up for the week so I can enjoy my amazing breakfast!

Alright folks, I’m out. Gotta drop some moola on some veggies. Dropping’ some green for some greens.

Song of the day: Skrillex- Bangarang. Love this song! Did the open WoD 12.4 to this so it reminds me of one hundred freakin fifty wall balls. BOOM.
