Today was a benchmark, you guys. I wrapped up my personal training sessions in two days. These usually take a month. Guess who will be WOD-ing tomorrow at 6am?
This girl. Two thumbs up.
Why do I get myself into this stuff again?
After drawing class today (where I made a mess and had lots of battle smudges), I went home to a small (but calorie-packed) lunch that fueled me through my workout.
Millet toast, coconut oil + sea salt, tuna salad (non-dairy mayo), and sliced avocado.
Not as good as Madre’s, but still super bomb.
Today’s session included overhead squats, clean and jerks, kipping, kettle bell swings, box jumps, wall balls, ball slams, and burpees. I left exhausted and my body hurt. My Sweat Dirty mentality thinks this is a good thing. I took two scoops of FitMixer aminos at the gym (really loving this stuff lately, and keep getting compliments on how it smells. You decide how normal that is), thanks again FitMixer and Blend Retreat! Went home and had a giant smoothie before hitting up Starbucks Happy Hour with a couple of my favorite boys.
Two scoops Vega Vanilla Performance Protein, 1 cup pitted cherries (have you ever tried to pit cherries? impossible), 2 cups coconut water, 1 tbsp. raw maca powder.
So ugly, but so yummy. I always try to refuel with tons of protein after CrossFit, minimal fat and carbs. In my mind, I’d rather have carbs earlier in the day, and fat later (after my recovery meal). Homegirl’s muscles need it.
I just got home and I’m still full from my smoothie (holy protein powder), so instead of showing you an awesome and fancy dinner, let’s talk about stuff I eat and often don’t show you guys.
Weekday work day meal: Small salad, sautéed spinach, dijon-roasted free-range organic chicken, and brown rice with corn.
Green Juice on the side!
Late night snacks:
Quinoa with chocolate chips, blueberries, sunflower seeds, stevia, and almond milk.
TJ’s Almond-Flax Butter with chocolate chips.
Millet toast with coconut oil, sea salt, and Madre’s tuna salad. (unreal)
These snacks are just a small snippet of the weird things I whip up. Including protein cupcakes, which really aren’t that weird but incredibly delicious.
Off to recover with some serious sleep! Lately I’ve been needing more, as I’m challenging it in different ways and booking my schedule way tighter. Can’t wait for the weekend!
What do you like to eat as snacks?
Even better: Favorite recovery meal?
