Friday, January 27
Best thing that happened today (other than the health of my family and friends) is that I wore a pair of pants that I wore 9 years ago (and probably haven’t worn much since). 9 years ago–before I was married. Before pregnancy. Before kids. Before, before, before.
And, what’s better, is I have photographic evidence.
Okay, its a little hard to see, but this is Rob and I circa 2003 (I’m 25!) in Palm Desert, California. And those are my pants.
And I would think it is a miracle, except it isn’t. I know exactly why it happened.
Another first today, food day at the office. It is interesting how the Standard American Diet (otherwise known as SAD–no irony there) manages to dominate. So, I made my most delicious (just assuming, didn’t actually taste it) Chex Mix for my co-workers. I joined them for lunch, but just sipped my water because I wasn’t actually hungry yet. I could tell that this was uncomfortable for some people but I knew that listening to my body was important.
Great adjustment today with Dr. Matt at Mitchell Family Chiropractic. That has been an excellent addition to the W30 for long term wellness and short term rehab.
Oh, and did I mention that I wore pants that I haven’t worn in a while?
For Time: 50 Toes To Bar, 40 Front Squats (95lbs/65lbs), 30 Bar Facing Burpees, 20 Power Snatch (95/65lbs), 10 Curtis P’s (95lbs/65lbs)
I RX’d this in 22:57. Guarantee that is a record for length of workout if nothing else. Except the pride here for me is that every one of the fifty toes to bar was a rep. Considering I started the new year with one, maybe, on a lucky day, I’m going to be grateful, even if it did take a little (or a lot) longer than some of the others.
Sleep=9 pm-440 am (wonderful sleep!)
2 PWO sweet potato egg white puffs w/ some awesome coffee at the gym because Janelle and Tommy bought a coffee maker! Thanks guys!
Breakfast: 2 baked eggs with turnip and chicken sausage hash
Lunch: 1 1/2 leftover pork chop with 1 crown of broccoli steamed and 1 sweet potato hashie
Snack: handful of coconut
Dinner: Curry shrimp (adapted from Caveman’s recipe) simplified: heat coconut oil, add 1 clove garlic (crushed), add 1-2 tbl curry powder, brown shrimp in skillet for about 1-2 minutes (I used 2 lb shrimp), add a little veggie broth to keep skillet wet. Then bake 350-375 10-15 minutes.
Also made some kale chips.
And some more sweet potato hashies (family hit)
And shared dinner with a good friend which was good for the soul!
Wondering if my pants are comfortable enough to sleep in…
