Ah – yeah for hump day!
This morning started off with a nice, big breakfast. I warmed up the bell pepper, shallot, mushroom, chicken mixture from last night in some coconut oil and then scrambled in 2 eggs. Yum! That held me over until 9am when I had 2 pieces of fruit leather: grape and strawberry.
Lunch today was nothing special: leftover stuffed chicken breast w/ a side salad of organic greens, strawberries, cashews, sun-dried tomatoes with some lemon juice to act as a dressing. Then, before crossfit I had a little bit of shredded chicken.
Crossfit today was a blast. After a quick warmup we had 15 minutes to get our one rep max snatch. I need to work on getting low under the bar as I’m doing more of a power snatch than a traditional snatch. My max was 95 pounds. After that, we had Cindy! 20 Minute AMRAP: 5 pull ups, 10 push ups, 15 squats. I got through 9 rounds + the pull ups. My first 4 rounds were strict pull ups, the next 2 were w/ a thin black band and the last few were with an orange band. Not too bad.
I am really looking forward to dinner tonight. I am making PaleOMG’s Easy Bacon Chicken Bowl! It looks amazing. I am pairing this with a side salad of organic greens, avocado, tomato, bell pepper and cucumber.
I don’t think there will be dessert tonight. I attempted the fried plantains last night, but they tasted much starchier than sweet. So – guess I need to look up a recipe next time instead of free-wheeling it!
