Well look-ie-there. This day has a 2- in front of it.
Today I will simply say what I’ve been sharing with people for several days now. I feel great. I have clarity. I have energy. I have lots of coconut products. I have no-band pull-ups and toes to bar and double unders. I have jeans and suits that fit. I have happiness. I have being awake enough in the car at 5am to sing Tim McGraw songs.
Sure, I don’t have pizza and ice cream and chocolate. But I also don’t have guilt. I don’t have mood swings. I don’t have hunger pains. I don’t have endless thoughts about my next meal. I don’t have pants that are too tight. I don’t have excuses. I don’t have hangovers. I don’t have to hit the snooze button and miss my workout.
WOD: 20 min AMRAP of either CINDY or MARY (I did CINDY)
CINDY: 5 Pullups, 10 Pushups, 15 Squats
I did 12 rounds plus 5 pullups and 8 pushups. I did purple band pull ups until about round 4 or 5 and then lost the band. In fact, as I told Janelle, “I’m done with this thing.” I get a much better kip without it.
Standing Inverted DB Cross (5# them are hard!) + Wall Ball Sit Ups/GHD Sit Ups (14#)
Food: PWO 2 sweet potato egg puffs
Breakfast: Leftover chicken sausage and turnip hash w/ 2 baked eggs and 1/2 avocado
Lunch: leftover chicken enchiladas w/sweet potato delight (check out Pearl’s awesome grasshopper picture)
Snack: cucumber sliced w/ 1/2 avocado, handful of blueberries, handful of coconut and mac nuts
Dinner: “Breaded” Pork Chops
I modeled these after the chicken fingers recipe. I wanted something that the family would enjoy and that would stay moist during cooking. Oh, and that would work for leftovers too. So, all things considered, I started with 2 packages of butterfly pork chops, sliced each into 2, dipped in egg (I used 2) and then coconut flour and seasoning (old bay seasoning, salt, pepper). I browned in coconut oil in the skillet for about 1-2 minutes each side and then baked at 375 degrees on a cookie rack on a sheet for about 15-20 minutes.
The finished product was moist, got rave reviews, and is ready to go in the lunch bag tomorrow.
I also added another Whole Family Strong recipe (like yesterday’s enchiladas) Sweet Potato Cinnamon Hashies. WOW. I’m not sure I ate anything that tasted this good before the W30. These are fantastic and a real crowd pleaser.
I added some brussel sprouts and dinner was served!
Oh, and don’t forget, I have coconut manna………
