Pearl and I cut these beautiful flowers out of the yard today. How blessed we are to have such beautiful weather.
I started the day with the CrossFit Games WOD:
150 14# wall balls
90 double unders
30 muscle ups
My goal was to finish the wall balls and the double unders. Instead, I finished the wall balls and 64/90 double unders. I’m a little disappointed because I just know I can get it! I’m considering going back at it tomorrow.
I’m so grateful to this journey for this kind of thinking and confidence. Before Whole30, I think I would have thought, “Oh well,” but now I want to set a goal and go get it! I’m confident that I can do it because I know I’m strong and well-prepared. What a great feeling.
Before I left the gym today, I spent some time thinking about how thankful I am that I have finally realized that you don’t workout to eat; you eat to workout. And you don’t lose weight to be healthy; you be healthy to lose weight.
It blows my mind to think of all of the years that I worked so hard in workouts but didn’t make all of the other healthy choices that I needed to make to get the results I deserved. I can’t believe all of the 100s of days that I coaxed myself out of bed before 5 am without ever making a real commitment. Live and learn. And realize it’s never too late to make the commitment!
Also had a great 3.5 mi run today.
PWO SFH shake
Lunch: Leftover poblano pepper with chicken & broccoli
Dinner: Salad w/ grilled chicken (beautiful yum!) homemade roasted sweet potato chips, & kale (not pictured)
Also made some coconut raspberry cream. I make this from coconut milk (buy the full fat, unsweetened in the can). I use the top layer which is more solid and use a hand mixer to whip it. I add a few raspberries and a little vanilla extract. Here, I’ve added a coconut flour vanilla bite.
Thanks for reading. Good night!
